Interior Designer with Real Estate Roots

I started my journey in real-estate lending, working at a mortgage company in Fairlawn, OH.  I am an artistic person and craved a career with more creativity, so I went to the University of Akron for my degree in Interior Design. Staging combines my background in real-estate with my passion for art and interior design.

How can my experience and education help you sell your house faster and for more money? Or give the new look you've been dreaming of today?  Schedule an appointment. You'll be suprised at how affordable a home makeover can be!
