She has built the Staging Industry from day one before any others had thought of it. There was no Staging concept in the Real Estate Industry at all until she came up with the Home Staging Concept. Barb Invented the Home Staging Concept and industry when she entered the world of Real Estate as an Agent in Bellevue, WA in early 1972.  She quickly saw and realized the need sellers have of preparing their homes for sale. Her background in the theater in musicals and off Broadway plays gave her the idea of setting the scene and setting the Stage® in houses for buyers to see properties in the best way. This is how she came up with her concepts and called it Home Staging. Barb has frequently said that her invention of Home Staging was a gift from God. In fact Barb was actually called to list a House on her Birthday and that Became the Actual Day she Invented Home Staging. To Barb it was another Sign that this was a Gift to her when she invented the Ideas on her Birthday Day! Her focus, ideas, vision, and creativity in this area became her mission and to this very day her passion grows more every-day.  Her mission is to help create a better world through better home environments through the magic of Home Staging.
