White Rock has been home for 28 years. Working and volunteering in the community through my childrens’ schools, sports teams and community events has been fun and rewarding.
I started my Homestaging and Interior Decorating business 8 years ago and have loved every minute of the journey. The creative part of homestaging is the exciting part of my job, however I am finding more and more people are opting to “stage” their new home for living. Why not love where you live!
