Let us do your HOMEwork!

For the past several years, I have assisted my husband, Rick, in his Real Estate Business. Staging homes was an enjoyable hobby, and a service that we offer clients. In 2007, I joined Rick at Remax Garden City, as a licenced Real Estate Sales Representative. Since then, I have taken two Home Staging Courses. The first dealt with staging and its effects on home sales. The second course was an indepth course for Staging as a Professional Career. Both courses were incredibly interesting and informative. I now take that expertise with me to confidently and economically stage homes for our clients. Just one chapter of our HOMEwork!

We are with you, from beginning to end, on this home buying venture. Our vast network of experts in this field will see you through mortgage approval, home inspection, title search and other legalities with confidence and proficiency. As Real Estate professionals, we will research recent sales history, along with the history on particular properties, to enable informed and balanced purchase decisions. Negotiation tactics vary between properties, and between buyers and sellers. The psychology of negotiations is a subject that we are well versed in. You can rely on our experience!


Your home may be the single largest investment in your lifetime. We like to view homes as Savings Accounts. Paying your mortgage is similar to depositing money in your account. Any updating would also be considered a deposit, as it increases the value of your home. With this in mind, seeking the expertise of a professional when it comes to selling your investment, is a wise decision.

We guide out clients through every tedious step of buying and selling:

*mortgage preapproval *determining market value
*search criteria *home staging
*automatic MLS search *marketing
*viewing homes *gathering feedback
*researching home history *reporting feedback
*researching comparables *open houses
*negotiations for both buyers and sellers
*home inspection
*communicating with lawyers and mortgage specialists for title search, mortgage and closing information

Each of these steps is crucial, and as mentioned earlier - We are with you each step of the way! We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves and finish the HOMEwork!


Carla was able to transform an unsellable piece of real estate into a sought after - hot piece of property! The transformation was incredible. I didn't think anyone would take on the job, but she dug in and worked relentlessly to help a client in need!

We had our house on the market and were unable to sell it. The problem was the odd shaped living room. We even had our house professionally staged and the Stager was stumped. When we listed with Rick and Carla we didn't know what to expect. Carla tactfully asked our permission to stage our home. We were delighted that she took on the challenge. She brought in some great pieces, rearranged furniture layout - and got us a great price for our home! The finishing touches she added to the rest our our house were perfect! Excellent service!

Carla came up with some great ideas for our home that had not occurred to us. Our bungalow is quite a challenge, and we do a lot of entertaining. We wanted our home to reflect our needs and Carla was able to accomplish that. She worked with our lifestyle in the forefront. We love the furniture layouts she prepared for us. We can definitely incorporate the plans into our 'grand plan'!
