I started Designer Junkies Inc. on February 13, 2009. As much as I wanted to
leave Real Estate behind and go full-time with this company, I had that feeling of “to not make a haste decision” in the back of my mind. So, I continued selling
Real Estate just as I had done for the past 12 years. With each house
transaction completed I continued to pay the bills, even though I knew it didn’t
hold the contentment I was searching for. After many sleepless nights, I
decided that my happiness was key to making the most of this
great life I was given. To get Designer Junkies known I thought that
perhaps staging some of my own listings would be a good start. So I did it
and received very positive feedback, which in turn, gave me encouragement to
continue. Then I asked a fellow REALTOR® if I could stage one of her
listings at no charge, again just to get my name out there. As word
traveled and other REALTORS® saw my work, I became increasingly busier. I
appreciated how much enjoyment I took out of each home I staged and the
happiness it brought to the homeowner. I felt I was onto something and was
going to make the most of it. I knew I needed to devote myself full-time in
order to make the dream happen.
Through amazing support from my family, friends and colleagues, as well as
having a very determined attitude, I embarked on this awesome journey.
And, here I am, living the dream of owning Designer Junkies Inc. and breathing passion into every home I transform!
