- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My background is interior design. I have also bought and sold 12 houses in the last 14 years which gives me a great understanding of the stress involved for sellers and a keen insight on what buyers are looking for.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I attended the University of Cincinnati Design program and also did lots of retail merchandising. Staging is really just merchandising to appeal to the most buyers. I love what I do and the effect it has on my clients. Moving on to a new home or designing their new space and making it their own.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently staged a 5,000 sq ft home that had been on the market for 2 months without any offers. It was re-listed with new photos and they immediately got showings and multiple offers that weekend.
