Get to Know Joan Staker

A Textiles and Clothing background, love of fabrics, textures, colors, and projects, combined with many moves, requiring quick house sales and redesign, "using what we owned, getting settled new home decorating", gave me plenty of practical training, in addition to the formal training, to start Time To Stage. Continuous study and learning are important to me to stay fresh and current.  There are always new inspirations. I am dedicated to the client and their goal of a quick sale of their house, or to non-movers who need a change in the look of the home they cherish as their space to renew, recharge, or entertain in. Preparing to sell or updating to stay, can both be accomplished with affordable elegance. Customer service and client satisfaction are an integral part of my mission.

I completed the Midwest School of Interior Redesign Staging Training, and the The Staging&Redesign Academy's Professional Redesign Training Program, and am a member of The Midwest Redesign and Staging Association, The Society of Decorating Professionals, RESA,The Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce and Professional Women's Club.


I'm always looking for a better way to accomplish a task, or improve a process.  

Trained by my mother and aunts in the "art of discount or bargain shopping", I love the hunt.  Using bargains for other than the intended purpose, is always on my mind.
