“I could sense that Paula’s talent Is conveying aesthetic information, and it was absolutely clear that she had researched and trained her eye perfectly for staging homes.  So I just knew that I could trust her advice.  And despite my limited resources of time and money, I was able to prepare the house knowing her expertise would help me maximize my investment!  Besides, I just felt a warm connection with Paula, and that was wonderful.” Tanya M., Seller

In 1999 Paula participated in the development of a Regional Sustainable Building Action Plan with Seattle King County and METRO.
