My name is Michael McCraine.
I help property owners, developers, and brokers sell homes quickly and for higher prices.
62% of buyers know within moments of entering a house whether they are going to make an offer. It’s that fast.
Selling a home is like dating. First impressions are everything. You want buyers to fall in love with your property. Fictional Homes will dress it to impress, making it stylish and seductive, warm and welcoming. Your buyers won’t know what hit them; they’ll just know they want it.
Surveys show that buyers are basing decisions on how they feel while in a home, rather than size, layout, or even price.
Buyers need an emotional connection. A house needs to feel like a home. Whatever their list of wants and needs, it’s this heartfelt experience that drives buyers to act fast and bid high. Each Fictional Home is designed to help them walk into your space and feel it’s already theirs.
Why Fictional Homes?
Fictional Homes brings the personal touch back to home staging. We carefully consider architecture, neighborhood demographics, and the unique features of your space before choosing the furnishings we install. The result is a house that speaks to buyers perfectly suited to buy it.

"Michael McCraine is a pleasure to work with during every stage of a project. She has a great understanding of space, light and function. She knows what elements need to go into a space that will work within budget and at the same time transform those spaces into something truly magical. As an architect who works with many professionals in the design field, I find Michael's design abilities to be outstanding in many different circumstances."
-Jennifer D., Architect
Michael struck a perfect combination of design and aesthetic to transform the empty space into an environment that people could connect with and feel comfortable in, allowing for the best possible experience that property could offer a perspective buyer. I look forward to finding more opportunities to work together.
"Ms. Michael helped me, in the course of one long day from assessment through an Ikea trip through final furniture and lighting installation, update, organize functionally, and better design stylistically, my Santa Monica home. I was awed at her great eye, and at her practical knowledge regarding how to improve the style and function of multiple rooms with stellar, classy results on a sorely low budget. She was solicitous of my preferences at every step of the way, but also confidently responded when I asked her what would work, and what would not. Despite my low confidence in the interior design arena when I need to create spaces myself, I absolutely recognize quality when I encounter it. Michael is the real, quality deal-- as the photos on her website reflect. I could not recommend her more highly."
