About Marlena Uhrik
Marlena has been staging homes beginning with her favorite dollhouse as a child! Even then, she loved the creative process of moving things around to have that transformational “aha” effect. As an adult, Marlena went on to become an educator, with a Doctorate degree, always “fixing” and creating environments – from classrooms and cubicles to entire schools – that stimulated the heart and soul yet were calming, nurturing and engaging.
Over the years, Marlena has sharpened her natural talents by taking a variety of interior design classes to expand her knowledge and expertise. She has staged the four homes she and her husband have lived in resulting in huge profits when the homes were sold. She has professionally staged homes in the Sacramento region for the last 10 years, and is especially sought after by real estate agents, brokers and real estate investors.
Marlena’s unique talents bring color, texture, and style along with grace, elegance and simplicity to home staging. Marlena studies the architectural features and natural lighting to maximize the selling points of each and every property.
She specializes in addressing the individual uniqueness of every home and knows how to take a home from “Oh” to “WOW”. Marlena’s expertise provides that “ready-to-move-in condition” that home buyers are looking for and creates the emotional connection that buyers feel when they walk into a home and say, “This is IT.”

What Others say About Amazing-Staging by Marlena
Over 20 years of experience in Real Estate. Currently, Real Estate Broker/ Real Estate Investor. “There I was – on the last day of closing a deal on a $615,00 fix and flip. All of a sudden, everything changed. The buyer’s contract had just fallen through and the Home Stager’s contract had just expired. Essentially, I was with an unsold home with no furniture, no staging and no hope. When Marlena heard my story, she said, “Don’t worry Frank. I’ll stage it for you.” After our walk through, she provided detailed suggestions for the interior and exterior of the property. Little did I know she would take that place and in a matter of a few days, turn it around to have a beautifully – appointed home that sold in record time and at top dollar!
Marlena provided me with:
- A detailed proposal of costs, services and a timeline – all which met my requirements for getting this place on the market again as soon as possible within a very limited budget. She also provided a variety of other options such as Pre-Open House Enhancements.
- An amazingly-staged home full of beautiful furniture and accessories
Most of all, trust and peace of mind is what I got from working with Marlena. I could count on her. I really appreciated her level of accountability based on our personal interactions. She was always on time to do the job and she kept her word. She showed she could meet a tight timeline, keep her agreements, stick to the budget, and go over and above with what she delivered. I knew I was in good hands working with Amazing-Staging by Marlena.
