Creativity and helping people has always been an important part of Barb's life. She enjoyed many rewarding years as a retail buyer and manager. Having studied merchandising, interior design, advertising and marketing at Stephens College and Michigan State University, Barb has continued to explore and grow throughout her adult life. Having reached the corporate executive level with one of the major retailers in the country, Barb was looking for more inspiration and independence. That drive brought her to the profession of home staging and redesign. Having completed advanced training and certification, in 2009, Barb founded Sonoran Accents Home Staging & Redesign. She brought onboard an experienced and talented business partner and every since, they've blended their years of experience, talent and success to help people get their properties SOLD.
She works successfully with Realtors and home sellers to prepare a property to sell, and loves helping people get to the next stage in their lives. " When a property is professionally staged, added value is created; sellers win and buyers win. We create a great first impression while focusing on balance and traffic flow. 90% of buyers can't see beyond what is there. That's why we create a warm and inviting space where buyers can see themselves living." For clients not selling but wanting an updated living space for themselves, these experts will create a home that fits both budget and lifestyle.
Voted one of the Top 3 Staging Companies in the USA in 2012 by RESA, Barb and her partner continue to grown and exceed their clients' expectations.
