Luxury Home Staging Design & Clientele Advice with Florida Home Stager Kristy Craig Anderson | The Home Staging Show Podcast Season 10 Episode 2
About Today’s Show & About Kristy
Now that the podcast is back, we get to hear from even more fantastic & talented professionals in the home staging & real estate industries! For our first interview of season 10, I’m joined by the wonderful Kristy Craig Anderson of Dwell Staging to talk about staging luxury homes and working with a different type of client.
Kristy started Dwell Staging in 2014 with the goal to bring fresh, contemporary staging to the Tampa Bay area. Since its humble beginnings as a sole proprietorship, Dwell has grown into a 9,000 square foot warehouse with a talented team of 13 who stage hundreds of homes per year. Kristy’s work was featured on HGTV's "90 Day Dream Home" and "Container Homes", in House Trends and Luxury Homes Magazines, and in the Real Estate Book "From the Top".
Kristy and I talk about how she got into home staging as a second career and how she made the leap to start staging luxury homes. We chat about how to make luxury styling feel livable, the differences between working with your usual clients versus luxury clients, and how to make sure you’re making sound business decisions when trying out new markets. Kristy also shares her top tips for stagers and agents who want to stage and sell luxury homes in the most efficient, beautiful way possible.
