Carol Ann and I met at church a few years ago. We became good friends and spent a great deal of our free time together. We realized that we both had a passion for decorating and for helping people. A few years ago, Carol Ann started to talk to me about starting a new business together.

My husband and I had owned a business for 17 years, and I did feel ready to branch out into something of more personal interest to me. I enjoyed the many aspects of running our own business and over the years acquired the skills associated with business ownership – including customer service, management, financial as well as technical.

Carol Ann and I decided to launch the business, Staged to Sell in the Spring of 2013 and I am now able to apply my business skills to something I’m passionate about – decorating and helping people. I can’t believe the great success that we have already experienced. To date, our staged homes are beating the national average for time on the market! The national average for a staged home on the market is 36 days. The average time on the market for a Staged to Sell home is only 30 days! Unbelievable!
