#FEELATHOME Gets Rave Reviews

It seems like a distant memory, just two short years ago sitting down to write my first book “Feel at Home: Home Staging Secrets for a Quick and Easy Sell.” I wrote the book, not for fame or fortune, but to be able to help homeowners fall in love their spaces and feel at home, regardless of if they were planning to move or stay put.

As a kid I always knew someday I’d write a book, although I didn’t know that someday would be now and the subject would be home staging. For those of you who don’t know my story I became a home stager back in 2009, opening up a NYC-based home staging company called Stylish Stagers, Inc.

It was frustrating, nonetheless, so I thought why not share my knowledge, expertise and clients’ success stories in a book to help others understand how this powerful marketing tool could increase their odds of selling a home.
