Home sellers, realtors and design clients have a lot to say about Laurie and her effortless ability to blend aspects of staging and design. Real estate agents appreciate that she’s professional, an excellent communicator and “has an exceptional eye for detail that delivers the wow-factor.” Re/Max Realtor Brian M. noted that after “Laurie worked her magic,” a listing that was on the market for four years sold in only two weeks. Home sellers have found the visual impact of Laurie’s designs reduce the amount of time in the competitive housing market and increase the home’s value.
