It is time for me to Retire!

Home Stager

After 12 wonderful years as an Accredited Staging Professional, it is time for me to retire. 

I have enjoyed every minute of it! I have worked with super Realtors and their clients to share in their successful sales. It was so rewarding!

I would consult on their home and give them a plan of action and then they would carry it out. My aim was always to change them from living mode to selling mode without removing the 'home' feeling. I wanted the buyers to see a home that had been well maintained and appealing. 

I have followed so many of you through your blogs and enjoyed the interaction very much. 


Thank you for being my friends in the Rain!

Hi Janice - I'm sure retiring was a hard decision to make. I echo Kathy Streib 's wish that you'd stop by here from time and time and say hi. Best wishes for the next chapter in your life!

I'm just now seeing this! I'm not far behind you I think. My husband has been talking about retirement for some time now and once he makes the leap so will I. Just around the corner!

I wish you much happiness Janice.

As others have already said....please pop in now and then and say Hi!

I guess I'll see you facebook.
