About

Owned and operated by Trish and Young Kim, Staged Interior has been staging homes for ten years. That said, it takes more than one stager to accomplish a home staging project. That is why we work with a talented team of ASP Home Stagers on each project. Under Trish’s leadership, our energetic stagers collaborate to effectively create polished and beautiful results. And we have a lot of fun doing it, too! Utilizing the ASP Stager Code of Ethics and Standards as a foundation, each ASP Home Stager brings her experience, talent, creativity and, yes – muscle power – to the team. We all share in the joy and satisfaction of each staged and sold home!

Jeanette Sterbutzel

 

ASP Master Stager
Staging Team Leader

2014 Board Member, DC Chapter, IAHSP
Having enjoyed a 30+ year career in commercial and residential interior design as a licensed interior designer, she discovered her passion in home staging. After earning her designation as an Accredited Staging Professional she transitioned from interior design to home staging and joined the Staged Interior family. She is a member of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals and is a Staging Team Leader for Staged Interior. Jeanette explains the well-staged property is first admired from the curb and compels visitors to go inside and see themselves in a space. The interplay of color, light and function allows each space to define itself for buyers, sellers, and realtors.

Golf, traveling, and aerobatics are a few of Jeanette’s favorite hobbies when she is not staging. She is also kept busy spoiling her seven grandchildren and three grand-dogs! Jeanette and her husband have resided in McLean, Virginia for over thirty years.

Carrie Fiorito

ASP Stager
Warehouse Manager

Carrie joined Staged Interior in 2008 with an Accredited Staging Professional designation from StagedHomes.com. After working as a Staging Assistant she became a full time Staging Team Leader in 2012. She credits her success and enthusiasm in Home Staging to the exceptional training and mentoring that she received from Trish and Young. She has helped the business transition through several large growth spurts and many exciting changes. Carrie feels that this is one of the most fun and rewarding jobs she has ever had. She takes great pride in transforming each home into a showcase that attracts the greatest number of potential buyers and that stands out from the competition. Her results are proven with lower days on the market and multiple top dollar offers.

When Carrie is not Staging or preparing for an upcoming project she loves spending time with her husband and daughter at their home in Haymarket, VA. She also has a grown daughter, a son and daughter-in-law and two adorable grandsons. She manages to squeeze in some “me” time at a local gym most early mornings and is continuously drawn to organizing and decorating projects in her home.
