Whether you are aiming to make your house a forever home, or wanting to prep your property to be listed, I am here to help with an array of services. 

According to a 2018 Home Staging Resource Survey of over 4,200 homes, “85% of the Staged Homes sold for 6-25% more than the unstaged homes.” Only 10% of people can visualize property potential. This means 90% need a property to be cleaned and staged in order to envision themselves living in it. Home Staging makes your house appear bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer and most importantly, often prompts homebuyers to want to buy it.

I am here to help your house sell faster, make more money, have your online photos stand out, and ensure that you get a good return on your investment.  A survey conducted by Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation discovered that staged homes are usually sold 6% above the asking price and spend less time on the market when compared to unstaged homes. 

Things I work on and take note of include, the interior and exterior colors of the home, overall maintenance needs, depersonalization and decluttering opportunities, furniture placement and emotional cues. It is all about setting yourself apart. My goal is to distinguish your property from that of our competition.

Interior Decorating is a much more interactive process, as one would assume. We are aiming to satisfy your taste and goals for your home, rather than focusing on what potential buyers are searching for. It is all about making your space more aesthetically pleasing and functionally useful for the needs of you and your family. 

Decorating begins at the conceptual development stage and follows through to the execution of our vision. Whether you have a room that is lacking function, or feel your current decor is looking drab and outdated, we can work together to bring your space to life. 

Home staging, or house staging, means preparing a home for sale. On the other hand, interior design refers to the act of working with a homeowner to personalize the design for their space.
