I run a few businesses here in Hampton Roads, Virginia that were born completely out of a dream I didn’t know could ever come to life. But by the Lord’s grace, timing, and favor, it has truly come to be.
In 2007, I began my career in Real Estate by selling for a new homes builder in my then hometown of Mobile, Alabama. In that season, I developed and sharpened my real estate skills, started getting exposure in interior design, and gained much needed confidence in entrepreneurship & myself.
A couple years later, due to family growth, I made the tough decision to pause my real estate career and focus my attention fully on the needs of my own home. Fortunately, this break from my business & career was not for forever.
Things began to really shift over the eight years that followed. I had moved several thousand miles, doubled my family size, and still managed to exercise my love for entrepreneurship by creating a homeschool co-op that included all four my boys. It was very meaningful for me to be able to start a business while being a “stay-at-home mom.” It was a dream scenario for that season in my life and I, honestly, would still be in that position if it wasn’t for a series of unforeseen events that occurred in early 2017.
The transition that came next all began with an unexpected feeling that I should resign from my homeschool co-op. Then one night, a few weeks later, I had a dream that in the future I would have four different businesses & income streams that would all begin to be birthed once I stopped what I was currently doing and picked my real estate career back up. So, feeling confident that God was guiding me into transition, I did just that. I quit the co-op and through a series of divine encounters I found my way back into the world of real estate and doors started to open for my design business.
Fast forward a couple of years, and here we are! To think that a few of my deepest desires and a few crazy dreams would ever come to fruition is unbelievable to say the least. I absolutely love transforming spaces to feel like a home. Many guests in my own home have remarked about how beautiful and peaceful it is, and now I love that I get to empower others to transform their own spaces, elevating the look and feel, into the home of their dreams. When it comes to staging homes for sale or designing AirBnB properties, my enjoyment comes from being able to make people feel at home when a house is not their home, which definitively affects the profitability of both of those scenarios.
I offer design consulting & strategy services for residence, for-sale, & Airbnb properties, as well as residence and for-sale renovation projects. Please contact me before you get started so we can discuss how to build a customized and in-depth plan for your unique project or listing.
