The Police Officer that is celebrating her 1st Year Anniversary in buisness

By
Home Stager with J.Williams Home Staging LLC.

I am fast approaching my 1 year anniversary for my company J.Williams Home Staging LLC. How awesome is that. I have a company and I will be celebrating my 1st year in business. I know I am just starting and I have a long journey before me.

I am a police officer also, I have been for 16 years. I love to help people and I love to be around the public, and I try and see the good in all situations. ,So when I started staging, I felt like I was making a differnce in that families life. When I am staging a vacant home, I am helping someone see the potential in that home.

I know I am surrounded by outstanding, talented people. In the  Lake Charles area we have some great people in the Real Estate , Home MortgageCo. I really appreciate Richard Baggett and his associated they was one of the first ones to except me on Active Rain. Thanks Richard.

Audra Slinkey with HSR has helped me with the tools that I needed to start my company, Thank you Auda. I know you are here to help me with my continued success.

To all of my Active Rain friends it is a honor to be associated with such wonderful professionals. THANKS...

Joannie,

Nice that you are building such a great business.  I retired from the Washington State Patrol after 26 years.  Life is good after police work too.   So congrats on serving and surviving as a police officer for 16 and counting.  Good luck and go safe.

List and Sell (same great service as a cop and as a stager, good for you)

Joannie; Congratulations on your first year! As a retired deputy sheriff (28 years) and a home stager for two years, it's amazing how many parallels there are between the two jobs, even though they are different. Helping people in a crisis, problem solving, coordinating people, and taking pride in the outcome, just to name a few. As a police officer I saw that people who's lives were chaotic often lived in chaotic homes. How sad.

If you are a member of RESA, and planning to attend the convention in January in Las Vegas, maybe we can meet up and compare notes! Keep on staging-and stay safe! (Gary in Renton, you are so right, life is good after police work!)
