Liberty Lake, WA
We work with you to achieve a home you will be proud to show and buyers can't resist
I was born in Spokane, Washington and with the exception of a few years have lived in this area my entire life. It's a great place to live and raise a family. I am fortunate that my extended family has also chosen to remain close to this area.
My passion for interior design began in 2002 when I bought a house and began decorating it. I think design is best when it is kept simple. The things you need and the things you love should be incorporated in a way that does not feel busy or uncomfortable. That can be accomplished no matter what personal design style you are working with.
I will soon receive a certificate in home staging and interior re-design from QC Design School. I have acquired valuable knowledge in home design, running a successful business and how to best serve my clients.
My experience in home design has been primarily working on my own home which I sold in June, 2010. Two days after listing it I received my first offer. That deal fell through but within a week I received a cash offer which resulted in a closing. Two offers within a few weeks in this market and in this area is unheard of. The house next door which is slightly larger sold three months later for $10,613 less then mine. There is no doubt that staging played a large part in the quick, successful sale of my home. This is the same result I would like to help my clients achieve.
For most of my career I have worked in the real estate related field of title and escrow services, something I still do. Wanting to make a change while staying connected to real estate I decided to combine my knowledge of real estate with my love of home design and am in the process of opening a business called Front and Center Home Staging. I look forward to a long career in staging hoping to help turn what can be a stressful time for homeowners into one that is positive and profitable.
