Thank you for considering The Refreshed Home! Projects are about you and the work, but you want a good fit, so here’s what I’ll bring to the party.
The short version: Expertise (experience, range, wisdom and results), information, efficiency, perspective, humor, and kindness.
- Bettering spaces has been my entire career. Launched TRH in 2007 after 27 years in interior design, and store management
- In 2016 I prepared $47.5M worth of WC properties for sale. 54 sold for combined volume of $38.8M, 13 more (representing $10.8M) are in contract. Last year my sellers averaged 98.6% of their original list, and sold in almost half the time (49 DOM vs rest of WC single family houses, 90 DOM)
- Philosophy Bettered spaces elevate the people and their lives too. TRH brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process. Together we define issues, explore practical options and your preferences for implementing, so you can get on with your life!
- Business Model The Refreshed Home is a design consultancy representing your best interests. Revenue is driven by value of counsel, not sale of any product. You control time/costs, and get what you want, nothing more, and nothing less!
- Education is a constant. Interior Design studies at Parsons, business degree from Berkeley College. Since then it’s life, generous amounts of trade CE. I also lead Decorating and Home Staging workshops throughout the county, and teach at Bronxville Adult School. Recently received NYSAR’s ITI designation, on the path to creating a CE class for agents.
- Accreditation matters. Professional-Level, NCIDQ-certified member of the Interior Design Society, RESAPro and Approved Instructor designations from Real Estate Staging Association. Affiliate Member of Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR) and Empire Chapter of Women’s Council of Realtors, Sponsor-partner with Westchester Real Estate Inc.
- Etcetera Current volunteer, and past board member of Furniture Sharehouse. Also a poll worker, regular blood donor, a sponsor and volunteer for Pleasantville Music Festival. Married to Douglas, we live in White Plains with our rescue dog Mona, and some frisky goldfish.
Value is always in the eye of the beholder, here’s what your friends and colleagues have to say about working with The Refreshed Home.
