What is the secret to your success?

“Never allow your ego to know you’re successful.”

What word do you most want associated with you and your business?

“Trusted. If I say, ‘No problem,’ I want my clients to know it’s no problem. If I cannot handle a job, I want my clients to trust that I would tell them. I want my clients to be able to hand me keys and a check and trust that their properties are going to look their best once I’m done.”

Describe your typical client.

A real estate agent in a panic, trying to get a home staged in the next 48 hours in time for photography, and to be able to post to the MLS that weekend.”

" I love my business so much; every job is important to me, every client, every estimate, every review, every phone call.”

read what clients are saying..

"Motif Interiors used custom high end furniture throughout the house, giving it a very rich feel. This property looked like it should be more than the Strand property."

"We sold our house for way over the asking price. Our buyer actually asked us to purchase some of the furniture because it looked so great in the house. "
