Coastal Craftsman by Jessica Miller

One of my latest projects Archway Properties just hit the market! This 2 story craftsman is in the Historic Kingman Place just off University. The main floor boasts a knocked out wall in the kitchen to expand the space into the dining room. Exposed brick, quartz counters, with an extremely functional peninsula, new paint lighting and flooring throughout. Check out the before and afters. Couldn’t be more pleased about how this property turned out.

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.

TOP 18 in 2018 by Jessica Miller

Well, I think it’s safe to say 2018 was successful! I just counted and recounted (because I didn’t believe my math) the number of stages last year and I came up with 125?! How is this even possible? Last year was 52 and the year before that was 35! Holy moly, that is a 140% increase from last year! I even had 30 staging consultations, 15 flips and 10 interior design clients mixed in. I can’t thank my clients enough- agents, investors, homeowners. corporations and agencies. Thank you for trusting me with your homes, projects and designs. I brought on a full-time assistant, leased a 2,000 sqft warehouse and Sprinter van to make job run as smooth as possible. So far so good :)

Here’s my top 18 stages of 2018. I wish I could share my commercial work with Pella Corportation but it won’t be out til early 2019. Thanks for everything! Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

Best,

Jess
