In 2008, Linda made the move to turn her fascination with design and passion for creating beautiful spaces into a home staging career. Looking for ways to grow her business, Linda staged her first home, gaining experience and the photos she would need to promote her services. Linda showcased her work online and caught the attention of a local TV News Anchor who was having difficulty selling her home. This project became Linda’s second stage. The home’s quick sale catapulted Linda onto the radar of St. Louis’ top producing real estate agents and placed her services in high demand.
Over the past thirteen years, Linda has grown Dazzle into a company with a 10,000 square foot warehouse and amassed a team of hard-working, dedicated employees. The Dazzle team stages nearly 400 vacant homes annually and has earned numerous industry awards. Most recently, Dazzle earned the Best of Houzz award for the seventh consecutive year and was recognized by RESA as one of the nation’s Top five staging companies. Linda served on the HSRA Board of Advisors from 2013 through 2020 and is a certified instructor for Continuing Education classes, allowing her to share her industry knowledge on a national platform.
