Twenty-three years in the real estate industry has taken my career through good markets, buyers' markets and sellers' markets. I have had plenty of move-in, priced right properties to sell with demand and supply in close equilibrium and I have had just as many real tough sells: bank foreclosures, vacant and dated properties, run down properties, tear downs, etc. My speciality: the hard sells. No matter the market, you need the right tools to get your listing from currently on the market to sold. I can help you do that.

Room Redesign Pricing Menu

Redesign is the art of transforming a room, house or office with a new look, better functionality or a new mood, with what you already own. We do this by rearranging your artwork, furniture and accessories to recreate the look that you want.

A redesign begins with a 30 minute preview of your house, room or office. This allows us to get a better understanding and feel of the entire picture. We will learn what you like, what you don’t like and what you are trying to accomplish with our expertise. Then we will return for the “redesign” activity. You can help or you can leave- your pick. Once we are done you will have an entirely new look with spending one dime on furnishings.

Fee quoted by individual job


I had a listing that sat on the market. Liz came to stage the property and within two days, the listing sold. She took a ho-hum property and literally turned into a marketable property.

Tracy Griffin, Dayton, Heritage Realty

My family room was boring and dated. I hired Liz to revamp the room. She helped me selected colors, light fixtures and window treatments. After that, she moved furniture, art work, pillows and within a week, I had a new family, which I love.
