My heart + passion is for PEOPLE.  Their hopes, their dreams, who they are becoming.  I believe at my core that HOME is where it all begins + where the true journey happens.  My purpose is to help people create spaces that are worth choosing. 

I've been reimagining spaces all my life, but this started 4 years ago...

We desperately needed to sell our home…our sweet baby had just turned one year old and I needed to be closer to my Mom. It was time. But we had watched houses in our neighborhood sit for months without any prospects and we were nervous. Was it even worth it to try? But we had to! We were blessed with an amazing Realtor who believed the house would sell and really encouraged us to give it a try. And you know what…it sold in less than 60 days. It was unreal.

In hindsight, I’ve realized something. I staged that house. That’s why it sold so quickly. That same Realtor helped us find our new home. She walked through 30 homes with us until we found the one. Guess what…it’s 2 minutes from my Mom! Mission accomplished! But it was a SERIOUS fixer upper. Like straight out of the 70’s, friends. We had our work cut out for us. She recently came to see the house, 3 years later, and told us it’s the BEST remodel she’s seen in 25 years of real estate experience. The BEST. Now, THAT felt good. And you know what else, it showed me that I have a gift…a gift I can’t keep to myself!

What I love most about our home is that it’s our haven. It’s our safe place. It’s where each of us, my husband, myself and my sweet little boy, settle in and grow. It’s the place where we become who we’ve been called and purposed to be. When I walk through my front door, even if the floors aren’t perfectly cleaned and the toilets aren’t spotless and the sink has dirty dishes in it…I feel the weight of the day, the pressures of the world beyond these walls and the heaviness of responsibility drop at the threshold. It’s THAT good. And I want that for everyone! If you don’t have that, how do you truly become who you’re supposed to be? How do you find peace and rest and solitude? Everyone needs a haven, I’m on a mission to make that happen one family at a time. Whether that means getting your current home ready to sell quickly and for the most possible return or if your goal is to make a haven of your current home, I’m the one you’re looking for! It would be my great joy and honor to help you create the space your heart is longing for.
