There are certain people who just know what they want to be when they grow up. As a young girl, Claudia Jacobs always enjoyed rearranging her room. Throughout her school years, Claudia had a creative flair and a dream of becoming an interior decorator. But it would take twenty more years to get there.
Claudia went back to school to study Interior Design at Berkeley College on a part-time basis. She came across an article in the New York Times on Real Estate Staging. In 2004, she took the Staged Homes course with Christine Rae in New York City. She then studied Interior Redesign at the School of Interior Redesign with Ann Anderson in Connecticut.
She found her niche and was inspired to start her own business, Claudia Jacobs Designs LLC, offering these 2 unique and practical design services. Since being the first professional stager in the Hudson Valley region of NY, she had a lot of convincing to do. It is Claudia’s mission to get people to understand the concept, the benefits, the affordability but mostly the huge return on investment.
The Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) voted her 2011 Professional Stager of the Year in the Northeast.
Claudia writes “Claudia’s Corner”, her weekly newspaper column in the Sunday Times Herald-Record since 2006. She writes about affordable decorating and staging. “I truly believe everyone deserves to live in a beautiful home. Loving and functioning in your own personal space can have a ripple effect on other areas of your life,” she says. Many readers become clients. Have a question? Send it to email@example.com. She also writes every Tuesday on Hudson Valley Insider, an online news site.
Claudia is committed to providing personalized, exceptional service tailored to your unique needs. Whether decorating to stay in your home or staging to sell it, Claudia’s main objective is offering an economical alternative to traditional interior design.
