In 2010, Richelle D. Stannard established “Staged to sell by Richelle” where she is the Owner and Principal Home Stager/Re-Design Specialist.  From as early as age 7, Richelle was fascinated by design.  She would draw her own makeshift “design boards” on a piece of paper where she would square off rooms as well as cutting out furniture and décor images from her Mother’s catalogs and strategically placing them in a box that served as a doll house for her Barbie's. 


She became captivated by the home staging & re-design Industry since witnessing the emotional impact of buyers falling in love with an inviting, clean, organized and cozy home. In this case, it was her 6 years of experience working as a Loan Officer for a Broker, Countrywide Home Loans & after the merger, Bank of America.  She would assist Real Estate Agents with their open houses by not only being present for Loan Financing but, also offering the value of helping the Agent spruce up the Listing which included staging, décor & material selection and renovation suggestions prior to showing.  This experience exposed Richelle to the immeasurable value of home staging and how it evokes emotion from potential buyers as they see their forever home for the first time.  It represents the evolution of her passion for Real Estate.


While her specialty is Staging Properties & Home Remodel Consultations for Real Estate sales, she also provides, Re-Design for Living Spaces, Personal Shopping and an array of Design and Staging Selection Services for any materials needed to build a home innovatively from the ground up. Her impeccable attention to detail and keen eye for symmetry, balance, scale, proportion and color inspire quick sales so sellers can move onto the next chapter of their lives.  With her unyielding passion for visual art, innovative creativity, integrity and overall results, she can freely express through design any mood, intention, scene or lifestyle above and beyond expectations.

Over the years, Richelle has had the opportunity to cultivate her talents and creativity while residing in New York, Virginia, El Centro, CA, Atlanta, GA, San Diego, CA and for the last 16 years; Los Angeles, CA.  In 2012, Richelle was recruited to be a Professional Designer Talent for Demand Studios on homeguides.sfgate.com with instructional DIY videos relating to interior design.  Since owning Staged to Sell by Richelle, she has personally Staged and Re-Designed over 450 projects in Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Bernardino County for both commercial and residential spaces.
