Accredited Staging Professional™
Member, Real Estate Staging Association

Betsy received her Accreditation as a Home Staging Professional in 2006 and has been helping home owners prepare their homes for sale ever since. She provides staging consultations and services for agents and their sellers throughout the Pasadena area and is the exclusive Home Stager for Wilbur Real Estate Group at Podley Properties. Her work is featured on the MirrorMate Company Website and in the 2014 Real Estate Staging Association’s Consumer’s Guide to Real Estate Staging.

Although she enjoys all types of staging and redesigns, her specialty is helping to transform former rentals or trust sale homes. Since these types of properties often need updating, she gets great satisfaction in recommending and implementing simple ideas to cosmetically update the homes, making them as attractive as possible without the seller having to spend a great deal of money.

Betsy’s unique attention to detail and sensitivity to clients’ needs was cultivated by over 25 years experience as an event planner and project management professional. As Public Outreach Specialist and Special Projects Coordinator for the Commercial Use of Space Department at NASA-Ames Research Center, she executed seminars and workshops, created exhibits, coordinated trade shows and worked with local city government on special projects. As President and CEO of a local special event company for 10 years, she was responsible for its growth into one of the premier event planning companies in Southern California.

She holds a B.A. in Theatre Arts from Santa Clara University, received the prestigious Master Consultant designation through the Association of Bridal Consultants, is an Accredited Staging Professional™, and a member of the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). She was named one of RESA’s 2015 Top 10 Home Stager of the Year Occupied Category United States™ winners, and one of RESA’s 2015 Top 10 Redesigners of The Year™ winners. In addition, she is a finalist for RESA 2015 Redesigner of the Year.

Betsy is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and currently lives with her family in Sparr Heights, a small community near Montrose and La Crescenta. The mother of two active boys, Betsy volunteers at Rosemont Middle School and at Fremont Elementary School, where she has served on the PTA Executive Board for seven years, including two as PTA President. As a former actress and singer, she performed on stages throughout California and is still a member of the Screen Actors Guild. She enjoys theater, exploring new restaurants, good wine, thought-provoking movies, and spending time with her children.

“Vivian and I would like to tell you how thrilled we are with the work Betsy has already done in planning and preparing for the updating of our property in preparation for its sale. Betsy’s taste is impeccable and her attention to detail is exceptional. The plans she has provided are so clear and detailed that we’re able to see each improvement she recommends, to view photographs of the replacement parts she recommends, and to review the expected cost of each item in the itemized list of improvements she provided. Betsy’s dedication to the project is a clear testament of how important the sale of our home is to you, and we’re very glad we asked you to represent us.”–Martin and Vivian
