I have had the good - strike that - GREAT fortune of meeting and now actively working with Kristy on many of my real estate listings. Over the past two years, Kristy has encountered and succeeded with many different types of properties - some she's almost literally had to bring back from the dead. Many people who call themselves "stagers" lack the discipline and diligence to make this kind of difference, since, when done well, staging is hard work! But Kristy always has that edge, and she works tirelessly until the right results are achieved.

We received (very logical) advice that [hiring a home stager] wasn't necessary since homes in our market weren't lasting more than a day or two without multiple bids, but we wanted to be absolutely sure to get the best offer. We couldn't believe the results. Our 105-year-old starter home was stunning! Here's where it gets REALLY good: in less than 48 hours we had an offer for $8k over asking!!! I can't even make this stuff up. You couldn't help falling in love with the place every time you walked in. One of the best decisions we've made.

Kristy is professional and friendly, not to mention incredibly talented! I use her staging services for all of my listings. Sellers who use her services sell their homes faster and for more money. I am honored to team up with her on my listings!

Kristy is professional and friendly, not to mention incredibly talented! I use her staging services for all of my listings. In an occupied home she works with the sellers to come up with a plan to get the home ready for professional photos and showings. In a vacant home she uses furniture and accessories from her warehouse to transform an empty house into a warm and comfortable home, making it much more appealing to a buyer. Sellers who use her services sell their homes faster and for more money. I am honored to team up with her on my listings!

Kristy does an AMAZING job! She not only has an awesome way with all of my clients - they LOVE her - but she has the "eye" and skill to pull together the homeowners' own furnishings and make them into something magical. For those clients that have vacant homes, she's been able to do complete staging throughout the entire home to only a few rooms depending on the client's budget. My Sellers have loved her so much, they've used her services once they've moved into their new homes as well. A true professional who brings great value to my Real Estate business - an asset to my Team!

Thank you Kristy! She was so great to work with when we only had 24 hours until pictures were being taken :) Without her help we wouldn't have had a clue. She was insightful and knowledgeable. If you want an offer the first day your house is on the market, hire her!!!

Kristy is extremely talented, patient and compassionate. We all feel these are traits that our clients not only deserve but expect in this fast-paced real estate world. She has been instrumental in helping us sell homes faster at higher prices and we highly recommend her!

I recommend home staging to EVERY SINGLE CLIENT that I work with. Even if a home is in great condition and well decorated, [Kristy] is able to see every property from a critical buyer’s perspective and can help sellers fully maximize the “impact” that the home has on each buyer that walks in the door. I highly recommend that every home seller take the time to get Kristy’s advice on preparing their home for sale!

Kristy was awesome! We loved having her help us prioritize all of the different things we could do. Having such a thorough objective review of each room made it easy for us to trust that she knew what was best. Getting two competitive offers on the day we listed was the perfect icing on the cake. There is no way we would have sold our house, so quickly, and at the price offered, without her help.  Thank you SO much!

Kristy truly has an eye for design. She can see the potential in any home and her mind starts spinning with ideas. Her professionalism and sense of style are just a couple of the qualities that she can bring to any staging job. I will continue to recommend Kristy to my sellers, as I trust her quality work and her ability to get the job done and make a house look like a home.

I was thrilled with Kristy's work. The consultation was extremely thorough, and the effort to make the Seller feel at ease and comfortable was evident. I loved the final handout with all of Kristy's recommendations written down - because it's all too often easy to forget. I was thoroughly impressed, and I look forward to a long working relationship with Kristy!

My father was a custom home builder. As a young girl, I loved when he would bring me to along to see the projects he was building and designing. I can still remember the amazement and awe I felt seeing something go from studs and sawdust to a beautiful luxurious kitchen.

Over the years, I developed a gift to envision a home’s vast potential behind its current reality. Since then, I’ve partnered with dozens of real estate agents and countless homeowners to transform their homes into warm, inviting spaces where friends and family want to gather.

In my free time, you'll find me with my husband and our 3 young girls: Gracie, Ellie, and Ava. We love camping, spending time together at the lake, sledding in the winter, and doing lots of arts and crafts throughout the year. I also enjoy rummaging through thrift stores and garage sales for disregarded furniture that I can re-design into something new and beautiful.
