Your largest investment deserves special attention!
Your home is likely the largest investment you will ever make. So, experience is important! Cari had her first taste of home marketing in college, when she became an apartment leasing agent. Co-editing a weekly newspaper followed as a great opportunity to learn about effective advertising. In 1998-1999, she added new home sales and mortgage originating to her resume. Proving to be a natural in the residential sales field, Cari obtained her real estate license in 2000. Since then, Cari has added to the skills that benefit her clients by completing numerous continuing education classes. Call Cari today for a Staging plan to take you from For Sale to Sold!
Cari began organizing around the age of 9, when she would alphabetize her Grandma's spice rack. After moving to Colorado Springs in 1992, Cari became one of the city's first professional organizers. As one client wrote, Cari is "extremely honest and trustworthy in my home . . . as well as being prompt, discreet, and very pleasant to work with." (P.G.) Nicole C. said, "Just wanted to say thanks. I knew I would like you, but I enjoyed our time even more than expected." Cari can also target specific areas of a home at a very affordable rate. Gift certificates make a great gift for newlyweds and new mothers. Organizing led naturally to Cari's passion for Staging.
By presenting a Staged product - the listed house - with carefully designed marketing materials, Cari positions clients to realize the maximum profit possible from what is likely their biggest monetary investment. And, the investment in Staging is far less than a price reduction! After the move, Cari can assist with creating a comfortable, enjoyable new home. Even families who are not moving have benefitted from Cari's Staging for living. Here's what clients are saying about Cari: "The after is always magnificent, truly a revelation for the seller. She is very good with clients explaining the benefits of staging their house. In addition, she always puts in a plug for the Realtor to let the sellers know they have chosen well. I use Cari on all the properties I list and have seen the great benefits she brings to the table. I will continue to use her on all my listings."
Judy Carty, 2005 President of Pikes Peak Women's Council of Realtors, ERA Shields Real Estate
"I had a buyer who needed to sell his current home. It was an unusual configuration that we all thought would have to wait for the right buyer and we knew what that meant. It might take months. Cari staged his home and it sold in less than five weeks! She might be staging resales, but it definitely made a new home sale easier for me. Thank you, Cari!"
Becky Wilson, Classic Homes, The Carriages at Indigo Ranch
"At first, we had our doubts that a professional stager would make a difference as opposed to just using common-sense checklists and suggestions found in books and the internet. We were quite surprised at the number of things these guides could not have identified, since our home, like any other, is unique. We would definitely recommend that sellers use your service. It's such a small investment with potential to provide a large return in a short period of time."
Henry & Carmen Paguirigan, Indigo Ranch
