Valerie: I have a B.A. in General Education and a minor in Art as well as an M.A. in Adult Education and Communications Technology.  I spent three and a half years teaching English as a Second Language in China.  But it was time to come home.

My mother told me what a great time she was having staging houses and suggested I take the class to become an ASP®.  It sounded great to me, so I decided to give it a try.  I can't believe how much I like staging.  Now, I find myself staging every room I enter - restaurants, doctors' offices, even friends' homes.  I stage them all in my head.  Hopefully we can work together to stage your home.

Nancy: I have a B.A. in Business and Marketing with a minor in Art.  I sold my retail store in 2007 after 30 successful years, but found that staying home wasn't much fun. Real Estate seemed like the logical next step. 

I have been dabbling in Real Estate since 2000.  Getting an agents license allowed me to turn my hobby into something more.  When my first listing came in, I was so excited.  I worked with the owners removing all the clutter from the house and then preparing the house for sale.  Less than a week later the house sold for more than the asking price.  At the time I didn't know what staging was.  But with all I've learned since then, I can see that was my start in this great field.  I love selling homes, but I love preparing them to go on the market even more.  Let me help you get the most money for your home in the shortest amount of time.
