How It Began
In 2002, Jennie found herself in a quandary. She had to help contribute income to her family and yet she did not want to go back to corporate America where she had spent nearly10 years working in environmental consulting, marketing and business development. With four children ages 3-8 years old, she needed to find something that was flexible, yet profitable.
Enter Home Staging.
It was a service her Realtor had provided for the sale of their house, and when she and her family moved to the Sacramento region, Jennie knew that starting a Home Staging business would be a good idea.
Jennie was a Pioneer for Home Staging launching the first Home Staging business in the Sacramento market. She was selected to be featured along with Stagedhomes.com and other ASP®s on ABC's 20/20 in a segment on Home Staging. She was also selected as part of the team that was featured on NBC's Today Show Home Staging segment in Lansing, Michigan. She has been featured on HGTV.com and HGTV's House Hunters.
As the two-time winner of the Staging Award of Excellence, Jennie has been featured on local Television Stations, in local and national publications such as Realtor Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, DS News, and Woman's Day. She has also been a featured guest twice on CNN Positive Choice Talk Radio.
After Staging over 4,000 properties since 2002, Jennie's goal is to work with homeowners and realtors with the express purpose of selling the home as quickly as the market allows. This means the house has to stand out from the competition. A Staged Home is more appealing to buyers they need to envision themselves in a home and mentally move-in. Staged homes look better than homes that have not benefited from Staging techniques.
Her family relocated to Denver in 2009 and she launched Sensational Home Staging to provide Staging services to help Realtors, Sellers, Builders and Investors get properties Staged and sold.
Home Staging incorporates Jennie's years of experience in marketing, design, creative paint applications, mural painting, and interior enhancement. Jennie enjoys working with people and Home Staging provides a natural extension of services where the goal is to enhance the interior of a home. Her goal is to work in her community to promote the benefits of Home Staging and elevate the expectation levels of sellers and buyers so that a Staged Home will become the standard by which all other homes are measured. Her goal is to encourage and foster professional networking and support among fellow Home Staging professionals and is the President of the Greater Denver IAHSP® Chapter.
