Longer Bio, if you like the details!

 

I started in Real Estate when I was 9 years old. I would bring any guests to our home for a full tour of our house, complete with showing them the backyard. I spoke tall tales of how we played back there, and even showed them the storage space in our closets. I turned lights on and off and let them discover rooms while I explained whose room it was!

Fast Forward to age 12 and my mom came home to a dresser in the hallway, the living room all re-arranged, including art hung in different spots and she found that I had enlisted my younger siblings as “movers” so we could all switch bedrooms. My home staging /decorating career had begun. For the next 6 years I turned her house upside down.

At 18, I answered an ad from a local real estate office. They gave me an aptitude test and the Broker said “For being 18 you have some of the best scores I have ever seen, come back to me when you are 25.” I was devastated.  I wanted to sell houses now!

Fast forward to age 24, I became as Assistant for a successful local Realtor and then went on to get my license at age 25. I sold 21 houses my first year (back in those days the average for new Agents was only 3 houses, so I had sold 7 x the average!)

In 2003 I decided to open my Home Staging company when no one even knew what it was. I tore my own home apart to “stage” my listings with my own home décor. People always asked me if I was moving!

And so Simply Irresistible Interiors was born, and it is still opened today, 18 years  later. I stage approx. 80 -100 vacant homes a year, and have grown my inventory to accommodate those levels.

We are also the only Home Staging company in Edmonton to win Awards for our services, 5 through RESA and 1 through IHASP, our Staging Training and Resource affiliates.

I believe in the process so much that I am willing to stage for my listings, as part of my professional marketing plan.
