Hello, and welcome! I’m excited about introducing you to my company, McAtee Home Staging & Organizing. Home Staging and organizing, has been my passion for many years, and being able to start this business is a life long dream. Here’s a little background on me, and how this business came to be.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “when you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”, oh how true this is. I remember being 7 years old, wanting to rearrange my parents living room cause I knew even then, it could look so much better. At 12 years old, embroidering on my pillowcases, because they needed sprucing up. When I turned 16, and received my first paycheck what was the first thing I buy? Canvas art, because I had nothing on the walls in my bedroom.
Years later in my 30’s, relatives would invite me over to give them ideas on where to put things, shelves, artwork, etc. Still had no idea I had any talent, or could ever make this a career it was just something I did for fun.
Within the last few years staging has really grown in popularity, and I thought to myself why NOT make this a career. So doing a google search one day I came across, “The Home Staging Resource” I signed up for their newsletter, a few webinars, and knew right away this was the place for me. I took the online class, and received my certificate. I am now a certified professional home stager for Lincoln, NE and surrounding areas. I don’t think I have ever been so excited, well except for maybe the birth of my children, and getting marred. 🙂
So when you take a look through my website I hope you get excited about the home staging industry, why it works, and how it works. Selling your home in today’s market is much different than even 10 years ago. Buyers want “move in” ready homes, homes they can see themselves in. So if your putting your home on the market, or even just thinking about it, home staging can work within any budget, and get you top dollar.
A professionally staged home makes all the difference! De-cluttering, and cleaning is not enough. Buyers look for an updated home that fits their family, and lifestyle. I look forward into putting my talents into my career, and helping clients with any and all staging and organizing needs.
If you ever have any questions, feel free to leave them below, I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best, Andrea McAtee
