What's your why?
"I've always enjoyed creating enjoyable spaces. I genuinely enjoy helping sellers prep their homes to sell - it's the biggest investment of their lives! "
How did you know you wanted to be a home stager?
"One day, someone walked into my home and said, 'Your home is beautiful! Is it staged?" I replied, 'Staged? What is staged?' Three days later I quit my job and the rest is history!"
