Hi, I'm Melpo.
I am The Nashville Stager and owner of Intentional Interiors Home Staging and Design in Nashville, TN.
I am a first-generation Greek-American, born and raised in Missouri and relocated to Nashville with my amazing husband, Barry, who owns 4 Corners Home Inspections. (We like to think of ourselves as our own (very) unique version of Chip and Joanna...Ha!)
My staging journey began in 2008 when I was one of the many homeowners across the country trying to sell real estate during the housing market crash. I had staged my home (before staging was as known as it is today) and successfully sold it with minimal loss during a time when condos weren't selling at all. I experienced firsthand the power and hope that home staging can provide and I really knew I was on to something!
My old condo (today)
Over the years, my career has led me into various roles in marketing and the interior design industry, and staging has proven to be the perfect marriage of my years of experience. My goal as a professional stager is to give potential buyers an experience that makes them feel like your listing could be their future home. (and help you make more money in the process!)
Today, I am a proud member of the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) and currently serve as president-elect of the Nashville chapter. In addition to earning my BFA in Commerical Art from the University of Central Missouri, I believe in the value of home staging and invested in expanding my training by becoming an Expert Level Staging Design Professional (SDP™). This training is one of the most comprehensive home staging courses in the nation and is accredited by RESA and the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP).
