“I am so honoured to have won an award in my first year of professional staging. It was a scary leap to open a new business and transition out of my 9-year marketing career, and this award really tells me that I made the right decision. Not only am I excited for the award itself, but I am also in awe that I had so much fun working with my client and then HAPPENED to get an award for that work. That is truly the best-case scenario in a career and I am looking forward to many more years helping many more clients sell their homes for more, faster (and hopefully some more awards too!).”
