This month’s Partner Spotlight shines bright on Lacey Dremann, owner and principal designer of First Impression, a luxury home staging company here in Reno, Nevada. We have collaborated with her on projects in the past and have seen first-hand how a professionally-staged home can make a huge difference in both the selling price and days on the market.
Whether it’s staging a completely empty home or complementing existing furnishings, it’s all about creating an emotional connection. Buyers will ask themselves, “Could I live here?”
We had a chance to sit down with Lacey and she shared some great insight about herself, her business, and the industry in general. Read on to learn more in this enlightening interview.
