Sherry Flotten - Owner/Designer
I love to walk into a space and see the potential for great design. I work alongside the owner or seller to discover their lifestyle, dreams and wishes for the space...that's when the magic happens!
I have always loved design...
…from designing clothes for my troll dolls when I was seven years old, to designing and creating historical dance costumes while in college to staging my own homes for sale - I am always happiest when designing and creating. I love the challenge of creating beautiful, functional rooms a family can enjoy. To me, good design isn’t just about putting a chair here, or a table there. It's about the feeling a person gets when they go to their house at the end of the day. The feeling when they walk through their front door, exhale, relax and know they are home.
I bring the experience over 30 years of homeownership to my clients. In those 30 years, I have moved four times to my now “forever home” and have personally managed the challenges of not only staging my homes for sale, but of hiring contractors, movers, painters, cleaners, etc., during those moves. I bring my training in staging and design, along with my real-world experience to every client I serve.
