Christy's passion for staging came to fruition in 1998 when she staged her first home on behalf of a friend. This was long before home staging was a known selling tool. Even then, she had the innate ability to see the necessity of polishing a home to make it shine in order to appeal to the next buyer. She enjoyed the process as much as she enjoyed the multiple offers that came in above asking price!
Christy gained an extensive amount of practical experience and project management when designing and building her family's home from the ground up. Collaborating with contractors, reviewing and comparing bids, obtaining permits and sourcing textiles came second nature to her. However, her true passion lay in selecting the "jewelry" that makes a house a home- floor coverings, plumbing and lighting fixtures as well as furniture and accessories. She revels in searching out great finds, at value oriented prices and composing rooms that pop with character.
Now HSR certified in home staging, Christy is bringing that same love of well appointed spaces to her clients and their projects and looks forward to bringing YOU a compelling product….. that sells!
Pacific Home Design began with two friends - Christy and Corrine. They have been close friends for over 30 years. Their creative team philosophy began early on, when they collaborated together in decorating their bedrooms in mint green and peach decor in the 80's.
Happy to say "good-bye" to the 80's trends, now Christy and Corrine work together to provide their clients beautiful spaces throughout a home with present day "sass" and style! With their team approach, client-centric business model, and genuine passion for creating unique, natural and stylish spaces that focuses on the driving force behind their success; Relationships.
They are skilled and experienced in listening and guiding, providing an assurance for their clients that the design process is enjoyable; even during tough design decisions. The two share an unwavering sense of enthusiasm and accountability, providing each of their valued clients a fresh new prospective in revamping their space. Christy and Corrine are committed to the highest level of service, and have created a career almost exclusively from repeat and referral business.
Corrine began her creative skill set soon after college when she became a Project Manager for a large commercial real estate developer in North America. Managing and designing class A commercial building projects gave her the tools and experience to be creative, innovative and knowledgeable of present and future decorating trends in the market. Capitalizing on her business experience and design prowess, she went on to become an Accredited HSR Staging and Design Professional and a member of the Real Estate Staging Association.
Launching her entrepreneurial passion, Corrine started her own staging and design business called Staging San Diego in 2006. Corrine's keen understanding for staging and design led her to further her skills by becoming an Accredited Color Certified Consultant. This really enhanced her business and allowed her to truly help her clients from "start to finish." Corrine flourished on building long lasting client relationships.
Moving back to the Bay Area in 2015 with almost a decade of experience in staging, she began Pacific Home Design. Corrine continues to have a desire for staging and helping her clients sell their homes quickly and for top dollar. She knows real estate and understands how unpredictable, fast paced and sometimes stressful it can be and she has earned a reputation for being patient, highly responsive, flexible and naturally gifted in the area of design.
