About Me

I am a seasoned, certified staging professional and licensed real estate agent in New Jersey, which means I fully understand the entire selling cycle and its idiosyncrasies. Being a designer and a realtor gives me an advantage as well as a deep perspective in that I understand the business side of a selling a home. My mission is not to just make things look pretty but rather partner with my clients during an exciting (and sometimes confusing) time. I’m affordable, easy to work with and best of all, I let you get back to running your life, your business or what ever matters most to you throughout your days.

I earned my official staging accreditation by completing the International Association of Staging Professionals (ASP) course, and since then, I’m proud and humbled to have become one of the most successful designers in Southern New Jersey. My design philosophy is simple – I feel strongly that staging isn’t really decorating. I truly relish the chance to review and audit my clients’ “treasures” or conversely “cast-a-ways” and find newly imagined aesthetic uses for them. To me, repurposing beloved items or simply juxtaposing them in unusual parings can introduce a whole new way to look at things. This applies not only for interior solutions, but exterior too – curb appeal is a big deal as conclusions and impressions are made when potential buyers merely pull up to a property.

My career originally started in Los Angeles where I was known for my ability to quickly rethink how a room should be designed, efficiently help the homeowner remove clutter, and get the home on the market — all for hundreds of dollar less than most staging companies. Today I’m proud to be a bi-coastal business – as I’ll gladly go where services are needed (see services pages for more information).

I truly believe that my background in real estate adds to my holistic understanding of what buyers want when searching for a new home. I know how to impress even the most discriminating buyer, Whether it’s making subtle, yet deliberate changes in landscaping or merely rearranging closets, I can make something tired, look new again.

Clients say they really like my flexibility, as my services are easily scalable. I can perform as little or as much as you need to showcase your home optimally. I like to get folks saying “wow.” When it makes to a possible investment in small remodeling projects (such as changing paint colors and updating key rooms) I can justify the return because of my deep knowledge of real estate transactions and market value.

I am proud to be named as VP of Events for the Woman’s Council of Realtors – Southern NJ Regional Chapter.
