Some of you may have seen on my instagram account that I recently became an Accredited Staging Professional.  Staging is so important when it comes time to sell a home because it helps buyers visualize themselves in the home and helps sellers to get a higher price. (Who doesn't want more money? I know I do!) A complimentary staging consultation is now something I offer to all of my sellers. Here are some ideas to get your home prepared for the spring market.

Home Crush of the Month: Mintwater Cottage

I've given a lot of thought lately to including a real estate section on my blog. It is afterall, what I do every day and it incorporates my love for interior design.  I believe that improving a home as you go, not only makes it your own, but also adds value.

I also know that a lot of you are at the point in life where you are getting ready to buy your first home and probably have a lot of questions about the homebuying process and whether or not you're ready for it. Sure, buying your first home can make you anxious but hopefully I'll be able to calm your nerves. Afterall, you should be excited about buying your first Rhode Island home!

In my real estate notes, I hope to offer some insights about Rhode Island real estate and home buying and selling tips. I'll also highlight a fews homes for sale and rent and share with you my home crush of the month. And of course, if you have any questions, suggestions or something to add, don't hesitate to reach out to me.

I'm always a little weird when it comes to Valentine's Day.  I like the idea of it, but I feel like it's a high pressure holiday.  Sure we would all like our special someone to give it a lot of thought and plan something special, but in my world, it really is the thought that counts. I'd love to hear about his plans for a grand romantic evening but in reality, I'd probably say, "Thanks, but can we order pizza instead?" But, for all of you hopeless romantics out there who love the idea of  getting gussied up and going out on Valentine's Day, here are a few items and ideas to help you get date night ready.
