An Accredited Staging Professional (ASP®) is a dedicated professional who has studied and learned the proven and powerful techniques of Staging homes.
An Accredited Staging Professional has successfully completed a detailed ASP course and passed a required thorough examination on preparing homes for sale.
An Accredited Staging Professional is committed to the principles and practices of marketing properties as Staged Homes.
95% of ASP Staged Homes sell on average in 11 days or less and sell for 17% more..
A Staged Home will look better than competing homes for sale in our local market, allowing you to sell faster and/or for more money.
Staged Homes are recognized by other real estate agents as properties ready to sell. They will be more likely to show your home to potential buyers.
Staged homes are recognized by buyers as the best properties to see. More buyers want to see Staged Homes, increasing your visability and showings.
Reducing the price of a property will cost much, much more than the cost of Home Staging.
Tax Advantages - Staging is tax deductible as advertising under IRS Publication 523.
Home Staging is a marketing tool used to advertise your property and is a tax deduction. All ASP Staged homes are certified as such.
With your Staged Home on the market, you can be sure you'll soon be moving... and when you move you'll need to pack.... so just pack up early!
Gracefully Staged Homes offers many services, including consultations for DIY'ers. We'll tell you how to Stage your home, or we'll do it for you!
Not selling your house but love that Staged Home look? We offer "Staged to Live" services.
Staging to Live is a double-win situation. You get to stay in the house you fell in love with and re-experience the joy of coming home.
Perhaps you've lived in your home for decades and have amassed overwhelming collections and want to hit the refresh button, or you've just purchased a new property and aren't sure how to show it off best or utilize your space most efficiently. Gracefully Staged Homes significantly eases the process of transforming homes.. As a team, we'll turn your space into the inviting, cathartic castle you deserve, decluttering all along the way.
You love your home and it will show! AND, should you decide later to put your home on the market, you'll be ready!
Isn't it ironic? When we get ready to sell, we spend a great amount of time, energy and resources getting our home into the best shape possible - only to leave it...
The time to invest in your home is now while you live in it!
Stage your home just for you! Do you need more space? Is your home looking shabby or do you just need to change your environment? You'll be amazed at what can be done to transform a home using what you already have. We can't increase the square footage of your home, but it will seem like we have.
Whether you are selling or staying in your home, Gracefully Staged Homes is here to assist you.
Gracefully Staged Homes can help you reinvent your space, both inside and out. We'll help you de-clutter, reorganize and redecorate your home, and since we use your furniture, artwork and belongings, it's truly affordable. Imagine having a new home without needing to move!
Nothing gives me greater joy than preparing homes to sell or to live in. Either way, transforming homes into something beautiful, elegant and classy never gets old for me. Each property is unique and comes with its own story.

I have successfully completed her detailed ASP course and passed a required thorough examination on preparing homes for sale.

I stay educated on current trends and am an active member of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP).
Being the daughter of a diplomat in the Foreign Service, I was born and raised overseas. My father served in over a dozen U.S. Embassies around the world. While moving from country to country, I learned at a very young age to love and appreciate our world’s diverse cultures and people. I believe it was those many moves that instilled my passion for design and interior decorating. Every new country meant moving into a new home, which in turn provided new opportunity to incorporate the style and culture of whichever country we were then living in. I thoroughly enjoy working with people from all walks of life and especially delight in transforming homes into stylish and tasteful places that sell quickly for my clients or renew the joy of living in an existing home..
Prior to Staging homes, I worked for the Federal Judiciary in the area of Human Resources. After almost twenty years of serving in that capacity, I decided to retire early in order to unleash my creativity and start gracefully staging homes. My husband and I currently live in the Spokane Valley – we love all things that have to do with family, friends, pets and music.
