I love what I do because it enables me to implement my two passions - interior decorating and education. In addition to my creative side, I teach CE classes to agents & brokers. Home staging requires me to be equal parts designer, educator and psychologist. As a Certified Stager and Color Consultant, I understand that buyers primarily choose a home based upon their emotional connection to it. It's very satisfying, exciting and challenging to me to educate realtors and homeowners on the importance, benefits and value staging adds to a property before its listed in the real estate marketplace.
