As a Real Estate Stager and Design Professional, Investor, Flipper, Broker and of course a homeowner as well, Ellie offers a unique combination of skills to her clients, both Realtors and Sellers.
As a licensed Realtor, Ellie has worked with Buyers in all price-points in the Triangle, giving her up -close, on the job training on what attracts buyers to a home. As an Investor and homeowner, hiring contractors from all different trades and DIYing many home improvement jobs, she’s learned creative and cost saving ways to add value to a home without breaking the bank.
Pulling from professional training and experience in design, color theory, staging, real estate sales, investing and business, Ellie’s goal is to help Sellers see their homes from a Buyer’s perspective and give them essential staging advice they need to prepare and sell their homes quickly and for top dollar.
UpStaging Designs partners with best-in-the business Realtors who go over and above for their clients, becoming a trusted team member and resource. Staging Consultations are the primary tool in assisting agent partners with occupied resale homes. Hands-on assistance in Occupied Staging is available for an hourly investment. Vacant Staging using accessories only, or up to full rooms of furniture is also available.
Ellie moved to Cary in 1995 with her husband, Chris, a NC native from Burlington. She is a proud mom to two sons and enjoys lots of family and friends in the Triangle Area.
