My Story

 

As a Professional Home Stager/Stylist I love helping people sell their home quickly and for top dollar. I love to see homeowners happy with the transformation that takes place in their home. It’s even better to see the results when their homes sell for a premium in a short time, allowing them to move forward in their lives. 

Before "Home Staging" was well known, home decorating was my passion! I worked as a Registered Nurse helping people achieve their goals in health and recovery and enjoyed redecorating as a hobby. I had the personal experience of moving out of state leaving our home vacant. It sat on the market 5 months until it eventually sold for several thousand dollars below the asking price. Now I know, it was likely to have sold quicker and for a higher price while saving us the added expense and stress if we had thought about Staging it first.

Since then I’ve helped other people prepare their homes for sale. One was a ranch style home with outbuildings on 5 acres for sale. We created a vision of what life could be like living on a small farm in a picturesque setting. The buyers fell in love with it!

Another was a 2 bedroom condo. The people were aging and needed to move. I helped them organize and stage their condo for sale, leading to a quick sale by owner at the asking price!

I began to consider pursuing Home Staging as a career. I took a Home Staging course through the Home Staging Resource leading to my certification as a Home Stager and Re-designer. The program, accredited by RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) helped me refine my skills and learn how to start a small business. Being certified in Home Staging and Redesign was important to me to ensure I was providing top quality professional service in staging, styling, redesign, and organization for my clients.

Client Satisfaction is my goal! Whether it’s Home Staging, Home Styling/Redesign, or Organizing, I prioritize the needs and lifestyles of my clients. The objective is to help people sell their home, relax and enjoy their new home with Redesign, or Refresh the home they already live in! I also enjoy helping businesses with their Styling needs so their brand is reflected in their space. Each of my services can be done in just one day. I'm eager and ready to help my clients with their projects.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your goals!
