The first home that I staged (and sold) was my own, in 2005. After remodeling, planning, designing, dee-cluttering, and preparing my house to look like a model-home, I received multiple offers and sold it in three days! A close friend suggested I get into home staging and real estate as a career.* Not only was that a huge compliment, it was a great idea. But, my kids were young and it wasn’t the right time to go back to work. I didn’t know it then, but, I would eventually turn this hobby of mine into a career.
Fast forward ten years. In January 2015, I became a licensed Realtor. I already knew that I wanted to combine my passion for staging with my real estate business. So I made it my mission to sell homes that were beautifully staged, that buyers loved, and that sold fast! In 2016, I decided to make it official and get my certification in Home Staging and ReDesign. Then, in 2017, I took it one step further and got my Pricing Strategy Advisor certification. I have focused on the two changeable things that matter most—Appearance and Price—when selling a home. The result: my listings have sold quickly (on average, within 15 days), to buyers who loved them, because they were beautifully staged—and priced right.
I’m enthusiastic about what I do because I love what I do. Blending my education, experience, knowledge, hobbies, and interests into one creative problem-solving business gives me an amazing feeling. If you’re interested in buying a home or selling (staging is free) your house in either St Johns or Duval County, contact me at email@example.com, call/text (904) 638-3243, or follow me on facebook.com/deekassenoff. I look forward to hearing from you.
*In 2017, that same close friend who suggested I get into home staging and real estate trusted me to sell her home. And, it sold (beautifully staged) in seven days for the full listing price.
