Get Dressed for the Party! 

Smart Staging & Styling

is the best path to a robust sale.

Would you wear jeans to a Black Tie wedding? 

Would you skip SAT class before your child applied to college?

Would you launch a million dollar asset without a strategy?

Of course not! You are here because you know Staging is an essential

part of marketing. If you get "dressed for the party" you will have a 

good time. If you prepare for a test you will excel. If you release a product

into the market you will have a great game plan. 

Every picture tells a story and we want it be a good one


Our world is visual and we need to "step up" the the visual images of

listing photos. This can be achieved with our best selling service -- the

Walk & Talk Consultation,  or a  three-hour Staging & Styling Session 

or a vacant Home Staging. We do it all. Each listing has

different needs and every listing benefits from Staging or Styling. 


Staging should be stylish, simple and authentic. It should "speak" to the

zip code and reflect an understanding of the neighborhood. It should also

reflect current design trends when possible. Our clients tell us our Staging

has "character". We use accessories and furnishings we love. 

We avoid using "cliche" Staging accessories such as -shiny metal 

objects or cheap canvas art. Our aim is to define and enhance space

strategically and tastefully.


Our Staged homes range in price from $400K to $2 million+.

 About ML:  I have loved houses and architecture since I was a girl

growing up in Connecticut.  All homes have the potential to look good;

the key is adhering to best-practice design principles. I earned my

Staging & Redesign Certification in 2015 after completing 50 hours of

design-based training. My previous career in public affairs,

advising healthcare, banks and real estate clients, helped me become

an effective "home advocate"!  I use my well honed PR skills to promote

our Staging clients on social media.


A Stager should have a Strong  Instagram Game


Instagram is an increasingly important marketing tool,

surpassing Facebook. I have an active Instagram following

and enjoy promoting our Staged listings on Instagram and Stories.

I provide this social media support as a complimentary service to my 

clients. Follow us on Instagram & Facebook @RedesignbyML

Today I serve as the President of the Interior Redesign and

Staging Association of Northern Virginia (IRSA) and I’m a past member

of the Real Estate and Staging Association (RESA). I work with sellers and

realtors in the VA, DC, and MD, as well as homeowners looking to

use "Redesign" to refresh their homes.

My husband and I have lived in McLean 22102 for 21 years. We were

long-time sports parents (swimming, rowing and water polo) and our

children attended McLean public grade schools and Gonzaga and

Georgetown Visitation high school. I’m so grateful to be working

with you and supporting this dynamic community!
