About Cindy

I’ve been an entrepreneur ever since I had baby teeth. As a third generation small business owners, I started Staged4more when I was 25. After 10 years in the home staging industry and building Staged4more to a 6-figure, award-winning business, I found that I make a greater impact in the industry by teaching homeowners and real estate agents about the importance of home staging and helping new home stagers build successful home staging businesses. 

Throughout my career, I am a constant explorer. In additions to home staging, I have worked as a freelance creative building sets and windows for companies like Anthropologie, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue. I've designed a wedding that was published by a bridal magazine. I've freelanced as a prop and wardrobe assistant on photo shoots for companies like O Magazine, Target, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Google and Apple. I've also freelanced as a florist in London, building floral arrangements for high end hotels and restaurants. All these creative and visual experiences allow me to hone my skills in styling, visual design, composition, photography, as well as looking at business models in various creative industries. 

I hope our school of home staging will inspire you to explore new opportunities. Feel free to leave a comment or follow us on social media!

Why We Do This

After years of running a successful, 6-figure home staging business in the Bay Area, I realized we were starting to meet a need out there that we didn't know was there. Homeowners are coming on to the blog to learn more about home staging and how to prepare and stage their homes for sale. New home stagers are coming to our site to learn how to further their craft, book more clients, set up business systems and stand out in a crowded market.

As a home stager working in the Bay Area, even though our clients have already heard about home staging, or even are very familiar with the concept, many home sellers and real estate agents still don't fully understand how home staging works and how to leverage this amazing home selling tool properly. This means they are leaving money on the table every transaction, which is completely unnecessary and avoidable.

I've also made the observation through participating in forums for home stagers and through the many inquiries I've received from newbies, that there is a significant gap between graduating from home staging training schools to actually build a successful home staging business.

This is why the new STAGED/4MORE is born. We know that homeowners are hungry for resources on staging. This is why we created The Home Staging Show podcast, to have dialogs about home staging with top experts in their fields to share their expertise on how to stage the house to sell quicker and for more money.

We know that most home stagers just want to focus on the creative sides, but they need to know how to run their businesses as well. This is why in the Cash in the Cushions business courses, we share our best practices, tips and tricks that had carried us through an aggressive recession to provide shortcuts for new home stagers to build a strong, successful business quicker and with less speed bumps.
