I started my life in real estate flipping houses in 1994 in Atlanta. I have always loved taking neglected houses and making them shine. I did most of the work myself, but I also had a huge amount of help from my Dad.
The first house I staged for someone else was for a fellow flipper down the street from a house I had renovated in Birmingham. Once my house sold, I moved the furniture and accessories down to his house, we negotiated a price, and Red Door Staging was born.
As much as I loved flipping, I slowly realized that my favorite part of each project was in the staging. Now that I am a wife and a mother of a very active 14 year old daughter, staging is a much better use of my time and talent.
My philosophy is that staging is an integral part of the process of selling your home quickly and for top dollar. As a member of your team along with your agent, I feel responsible for getting the house to show its best and get it to market. I value the relationships I have developed with agents in Birmingham.
I want to reduce the stress involved in selling your home. That's why I never charge a monthly fee for furniture rental; the fee is fixed no matter how long the house is on the market. Once your house is under contract and has passed inspection, I will move everything out and patch any holes in the walls so the house is ready for the buyers' walkthrough.
