It is easy to feel overwhelmed with moving. So many things to do and all you seem to do is hemorrhage money around every turn. I’ve been there myself.
I moved to the Des Moines area in 2016 from St. Louis with my family, including two fur babies. It was a whirlwind of prepping the house while my husband was traveling 24/7 and kid was on every possible sports and extra school club possible.
Once in town we landed in temporary housing and then moved again in less than a year. I’m excellent at decluttering, packing and making a house into a home.
After years of working in business marketing and graphic design in the St. Louis area, I found a new passion here in Des Moines. I absolutely love helping families and individuals get ready to sell their homes. I started my real estate staging journey with an awesome local realtor. She saw the talent and drive in me to stage homes both for her clients and into the local real estate market. I now can say I have the privilege to work with several realtors and builders both in Des Moines and in the St. Louis area.
I earned a certificate with Home Staging Experts, HSE and cannot stop absorbing industry trends. I am a member of the Iowa Home Staging Alliance and continually train at being better in my craft. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Graphic Arts from Missouri State University and have years of art direction and marketing service experience to round out my working talents.
So, please don’t be overwhelmed, I know how you feel. In the midst of all the other projects and expenses you’re facing when selling your home. But here’s something to think about: home staging is a relatively small investment compared to the cost of a price reduction — or months of making mortgage payments while the house sits on the market.
