First Floor Floor Face Lift by Jessica Miller

Let’s talk LIGHTING. Lighting can be such an easy and affordable thing to replace in an older home. This 2005 Urbandale ranch had heavy Tuscan lighting and a sponge painted fireplace that were immediate eye sores for it’s market and competition. I worked with the seller on budget and we were able to replace 13 light fixtures on the main level for under $2k. The return on investment would be major for this $489k listing. Thanks to the listing agent Gina Swanson, Webster Electric, Brian Bartlett Painting and my team we were able to change out lighting, paint and stage this home in 6 hours. Talk about team work!

Check out this quick and easy face lift below.

2104 SW WOODSIDE CT ANKENY by Jessica Miller

Exceptionally rare find in Ankeny - a nature's retreat!  Loved every second of walking through this thoughtfully designed home.  So unique and beautiful. I was asked to stage this gem last Spring and when I finally heard it was ready for me last month I could not wait to get my hands on it.  All the dark furniture was not helping showcase the beautiful wood and stone work so I knew exactly what to do.  Check out the before and afters!

Johnston Overhaul by Jessica Miller

I was contacted back in April by a homeowner who lived out of state but had a property in Johnston, Iowa.  The homeowner worked hard to get the home market ready were talking - gallons of paint, lighting updates, stuff removal and a deep cleaning. I was contracted to stage the living room, kitchen, entry, dining room and master suite.  I also advised on paint colors, lighting updates and kept her updated on the progress of the home over the 90 days it took to get the home market ready.

4941 Urbandale Ave Transformation by Jessica Miller

I started teaming up with the talented Rally Cap Properties team late last Summer.  Since then, I've staged a handful of their properties around Des Moines. I am always super impressed with their professionalism, talent and visions for each home.  Recently, they asked me if I would be interested in leading the design process and stage an upcoming flip in Beaverdale. Of course, I agreed! Check out how the charming mid-century home transformed below.
