Get to know Kate Lowry
I am a certified stager with an additional certificate for eco-friendly staging. I come to you with over 15 years of sales and marketing experience and formal art and design education. The two have joined forces to produce someone who is very driven to get your property sold with an eye for merchandising it to its fullest potential.
I stay with a property and monitor its progress beyond the staging. I attend the open house for any design or layout expertise a potential buyer may need. I become part of the sales team to any degree the agent is comfortable. I also have a vast collection of antiques and accessories for added interest in any setting.
My redesign services are ideal for people moving into their new homes and also for the homeowner looking for change; change without fullblown, expensive redecorating.
I am now the official Downsizing Expert for 3 senior living facilities in the Greater Portland area. I deal with the dispersement of possessions (whether for auction, donation, recycling or keeping for family members) and I help plan the new space with favorite furnishings and memorabilia of the homeowner. Special attention is paid to this very life changing move.
I am certified as a stager, redesigner and eco-friendly stager. My training involved hands on training in actual staging environments. My education was in liberal arts with a concentration in fine art and commercial art and design. One year was spent studying in Rome, Italy. I spent 10 years as a sales manager for an international trade show company, responsible for selling over 1.5 million dollars in services each year. For 4 years I managed a law firm, handling all accounting, marketing, advertising and media buys. As someone who knows the psychology of selling, the importance of marketing, along with a strong talent and passion for decorating and design, I am the perfect choice for anyone looking to make changes in their home. My eye for space, light, texture and color will amaze you. And I am respectful and thoughtful and honored when invited into this personal place called home.
I am a member of RESA (Real Estate Staging Association), SMART Stagers, Portland Boards of Realtors.
