I created my home staging business in early 2009 because my house had been on the market for over 9 months with no bites and over $60K in price reductions. Having a background in Marketing, I asked my real estate agent to show me the competition. Sadly, our home was not up to par. I thought I had done everything right, according the the Interior Design experience I had in YC, but soon realized I was WRONG. Immediately I researched online what I could do and found the Staging University in Seattle, WA, founded by the woman who created Home Staging, Barb Schwarz . Initially I earned my Accreditation in Home Staging and staged my home. Within a month we had 4 competitive offers for more money than the competition and only invested a couple weeks worth of elbow grease and $200.
The need in the Bozeman area became apparent and I did not want other sellers to go through what I went through. I found the "answer" and wanted to share, help, and serve others in a mindful, intentional, and intuitive way. April 2009, in a down economy, we opened for business. Humbly, we've been able to help sellers in different situations meet their goals efficiently regardless of the economic climate.
Since then, I've had the honor of being a Certified Trainer for the Staging University in markets such as Seattle, New York City, and SoCal. Staging in almost 20 states and Canadian provinces (WA, OR, ID, CA, MT, WY, CO, AZ, TX, MN, IL, OH, ME, MA, CT, NY, NJ, TN, ON, BC), I learned what buyers want in different markets and what they expect when buying in Montana. Personally mentored and trained by the Home Staging Creator, Barb Schwarz, as the only Master Home Stager in the state of MT. StagedHomes.com is recognized by ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) and acknowledged by the U.S. Government's MyCAA Program.
In 2019, we became Harmony Home Staging with the renewed focus on not only staging for sale but also the multiple factors that can affect the sale of a home like mindfulness, energy, balance, color theory, and feng shui. It's important to get in touch with the emotion behind the sale and purchase of a home not just how it looks but how it feels. I believe in operating with intuition, empathy, integrity, honesty, compassion, assertiveness, creativity, open-mindedness, and being a "solution-finder".
