Here's a Bit About Me
I am a HSR Certified Professional home stager and interior redesigner organization serving Milton, Federal Way, Puyallup, Tacoma, Auburn and surrounding areas of Western Washington. I have completed the most comprehensive and intensive home staging and redesign certification courses in North America provided by the Home Staging Resource.
The HSR Certification program was the first and is one of the only staging training programs accredited by the Real Estate Staging Assocation (RESA) who is the governing body for the home staging industry.
I have always loved design. 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 of 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.
About our name... Hale Nani means ‘beautiful house”, or home, in Hawaiian. I began studying Hawaiian dance at the age of 2 and have always loved Hawaii. After working in the public and non-profit sectors for many years, I am now doing what I love – staging and designing spaces that help sellers get the top price for their home.
