Purchasing my first home with my husband in Virginia ignited my interest in the real estate industry. My interest continued while I was a design specialist at Pottery Barn Kids. I discovered my calling when I got to meet new clients and help them create warm nurturing spaces for their families. After finishing my BAS in Human Relations degree at the University of Iowa I decided to take the leap and pursue a career as a certified home stager. My dream became reality when I launched my business Kallistos Designs LLC. The name Kallistos is Greek for “most beautiful” and symbolizes what I love about home staging: helping clients bring a dream of what they want in a space, and transforming it into beautiful reality. My dedication to detail and love of helping others see the potential of their biggest investment is what motivates me the most.
Through my work with home staging, I was able to partner with amazing people and saw my passion develop into something more. I began exploring the other side of reality and pursued expanding my expertise to become a Realtor.
When working with me you will get the complete package: The knowledge of home staging and design, dedicated customer service to listen to your needs, and the vision to help potential buyers and sellers visualize and connect with their new home. I truly am a one stop Realtor, and will do my best to turn your dreams into reality.
In my free time, I love to spend time with my two children, husband, and three dogs. Active in sports, I also participate and help with my kids travel teams. Lastly, my artistic vision is also expressed with my other venture: Alanda’s Hand Painted Decor. Hand crafted custom wood pieces and signs are shaped and created all by the lost art of free hand. This gives my pieces the unique personal touch you don’t find anywhere else. Grateful for an amazing group of friends and neighbors, I love to be apart of my community and giving back. No matter what endeavor I pursue it’s done with passion, caring, detail, and goes above and beyond the extra mile.
