I have always loved home decor and decorating. When I was newly married and raising my young children, money was tight. During that time I did not have extra money to buy home decor. Instead, I loved being creative at home by moving furniture around , painting old furniture, or walls and finding fun ways to decorate my home on a budget.
I have worked in a variety of industries, mostly banking, mortgage loans, and then Real Estate. I became a Real Estate agent and listed a small condo. The condo needed that ‘wow’ factor to stand out amongst other similar properties that were also for sale. I added some decor, moved some furniture around, and cozied up the rooms. I had so much fun staging the condo! This is where my passion for home staging began. I loved it so much, I followed my passion and started Adore Home Staging.. the name comes from my LOVE of staging.
My favorite thing about staging is seeing the transformation that takes place. I love transforming spaces into something beautiful and inviting.
A note to Real Estate Agents : From my real estate experience, I see the advantage of showing buyers Staged homes versus Unstaged homes. Staged homes simply show better, both online, and in person. Buyers get one first impression and my goal is to create a space that a buyer will fall in love with! My staging has shown to sell properties faster and for maximum profit.
“My sellers were so impressed with the staging from Adore. I was equally impressed. The home went pending in 2 days. Jody made everything look perfectly proportioned and the rooms were lovely, natural and welcoming. Thank you Adore, for the finishing touch”. – Maureen Grainger, Real Estate Broker, Century 21 Cascade.
“Jody was such a pleasure to work with. She staged my client’s home at a very reasonable price and it looked absolutely darling. My client’s were more than pleased with her work. Jody made this vacant home look so cute, it went pending in just one day! Jody accommodated our schedule nicely and even worked hard to de-stage early as we had a quick closing. I would highly recommend Jody for your next staging project!”-Pamela Cockburn, Real Estate Agent, Premiere Property Group,LLC.
“Jody with Adore Home Staging is incredible ! She goes over and beyond to find what will make the space feel inviting and open while not charging an obscene amount of money. She is sensitive yet confident when helping sellers get their home ready to stage which is truly a rare gift. As a Realtor, I need a stager to be creative and innovative, which Jody cleary is! I would hands down refer her to anyone looking for quality and experience! “- Lindsey Culver, Principal Broker w/Premiere Property Group, LLC.
