In this ‘buyer’s market’ of Real Estate, the last two vacant houses she staged, sold in less than 2 weeks. She not only can furnish vacant houses, but also works with homeowners to prepare the houses they are living in for sale. With the ‘fresh eyes’ of a perspective buyer, she looks for the strength’s of each house, and helps the homeowners address anything that would date or detract from the house, or not photograph well.
Coming from the film industry as an Emmy Award winning Director, Georgia has the unique perspective of years of experience in styling homes for photography and national television commercials. Her list of National Clients includes Maytag, Tide, Cadillac, Simmons, Georgia Pacific, Gold Bond Ultimate Lotion, Selsun Blue, Coty, and Belk. In her film projects she designs the art direction; including location shooting, sets, props and wardrobe, and is also responsible for the final look of each spot.
Georgia has always worked in professions that require an acute critical eye. Whether it is a 30 second commercial or the 30 seconds it takes to fall in love with a house, she believes everything that is being sold must look great and make the buyer feel good about what they desire and need. Georgia loves creating a warm, welcoming environment that buyers desire to call their own, transforming a house into a home.
