In 2007, Cindy was joined by her husband Doug, who is a huge benefit to the Staging team. Having been a realtor prior to becoming a Stager not only does he see things from a realtor's perspective but understands how a room should be Staged. Doug additionally has extensive knowledge of construction and landscaping and is able to offer suggestions in those areas as well. He also received training from www.stagedhomes.com giving the team a well rounded advantage.
Continuing in the family tradition Cindy's daughter Erika has joined the team with much the same background as Doug. She is also a whiz in the office and has learned the staging side not only quickly but very well.
Another daughter Stephanie has extensive experience in selecting finishes for new builds and remodels. She has a great eye and can quickly put a room together beautifully and efficiently. She has built homes and commercial spaces and is very artistic as well so she easily sees how best to maximize a space.
Erika's husband Will is in charge of the trucks and men. This side of the team runs very smoothly with the men being much more than just muscle. They understand many levels of the staging process and have things well underway on staging day for the "girls" to swoop in for the final touches.
As a testimony to our finished product, the bulk of our business has come from realtors, builders, investors and clients who have either seen the quality of our work or have been referred to us. We feel this is the highest compliment we can receive and continually strive to "raise the bar" on the standard of our work. We love what we do and truly enjoy helping clients in achieving their decorating and home Staging needs.
