Where to start.... First I have been in the Real Estate industry since 2001 as an Office Administrator for a local RE/MAX. That gave me an insight on what is involved in marketing & selling a home. I have worked part time with a Developer & Custom Home Builder since 2005. This varied experience has given me valuable information regarding how developments are created from start to finish as well as everything involved in building a home, not just any home, Custom Homes. Believe me their is a difference...
About 9 years ago, my husband Phil Kretchmar (a REALTOR on Active Rain) and I had a second child. This was a life changing experience, since our daughter was 9 years old at the time. This was a very exciting endevor and constantly changes our view on the world and everything around us. I was fortunate to be blessed by having employers that worked with me and allowed me to continue working on a Part Time / Contract basis. But it also got me thinking, I am pushing 40 and I am tired of the rat race. My husband has done well in his business and I knew obviously that Real Estate was where my career is, but what part of Real Estate? I have taken all the Real Estate Courses all 260 hrs worth, yet I did not get my R.E. License. Then my husband started re-structuring his business & he told me "you watch HGTV all the time, you love decorating and coming up with idea's for marketing homes through your Custom Home company - you need to Stage Homes..." and that is where this whole thing started.
I started researching Home Staging - realized this is still an untapped market and in great demand in our economy. Then I realized their really isn't any formal training required. Well I search and searched and found a company that offered the class & Certification and actually required you to design a room, so I went for it and got the training and am now a Certified Home Stager. I called my sister who loves making the world around her a more beautiful place. She has volunteered her talents for years at church, working on creating sets - working with paints, VBS set creations, etc. Completely re-decorated her home at least 4 times in the past 12 years, need I go on... She has been thinking about going to school and getting her Interior Design degree, I suggested we take baby steps and start in the Home Staging field.
This is how Simply Irresistible Staging was created.
At Simply Irresistible Staging we want to help all the Real Estate Professionals out there by offering exceptional service for a small fee, as compared to actual Interior Designers. I am not knockin Interior Designers in fact I love them! I know from first hand experience, that when people are trying to sell their home, the last thing they want to do is put a lot of money into it, but they are usually willing to paint, re-arrange their furniture, and declutter.
We can offer a solution to our Real Estate family, by assisting you in Selling your homes faster & for top dollar. We have several options to choose from so any option will fit your budget. My husband loves it - he no longer is the bad guy, he just sends us over for a 30 minute consultation and we take it from there... He said it is worth every penny!
We at Simply Irresistible Staging look forward to working with all of you!
