About Redesign by ML
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!
