What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The pricing for my services are simple. They can be all inclusive or can start with just a consultation. Prices are listed on the website.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a certified home stager, but to keep current I study the current trend you see out in the market place. I also am a part of the Interior Design Society which offers classes.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
After I got my degree in marketing I realized I needed an even more creative outlet to be happy. When I moved into my first place I realized I had a passion for making wonderful spaces.
What types of customers have you worked with?
For staging I get mostly vacant homes. Which are hard because they require a lot more planning and money.
I find that i receive more jobs for redesign these days, because people are staying in their homes.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have to say any vacant home I do, I am very proud of because it takes a lot to make a project of that size come together on a budget.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
My advise is to always call and ask around, but the designer who gives you the most time and truly listens to you is the one you need to go with. It's not about money, but making the custumer happy.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I would want them to know that I understand that it is hard to trust someone to understand how you live and what your style is. It is a very personal place for each individual and that is my profession, to find that and create it.
