Professional home stager of vacant properties listed for sale and the pioneer of "virtual staging", Krisztina Bell provides her clients with over 10 years of experience in the real estate marketing and home staging business. Krisztina consults and teaches agents nationwide and globally in transforming any vacant property listing into a beautifully staged home through her two Atlanta-based companies, No Vacancy, Inc. (www.novacancy-atl.com) and Virtually Staging Properties, Inc. (www.virtuallystagingproperties.com).

Both her businesses provides clients with traditional home staging services as well as a patent-pending process called "virtual staging" that digitally transforms any photo of a vacant home into a more attractive 'virtually' staged listing online. Krisztina developed this process for agents and sellers as an economical marketing tool that instantly drives buyer traffic and sells vacant properties faster. Both of her companies consist of a team of professional home stagers and designers who along with her expertise and works have been featured in such publications as The New York Times, Realtor Magazine, Dallas Morning News, San Francisco Chronicle, Atlanta Journal & Constitution, FoxNews.com and CNBC.com.

Krisztina was co-host of the popular Atlanta radio show and featured online podcast available on itunes, "At Home With Paisley Radio Show" on www.AmericasWebRadio.com which featured interviews with high profile home, design and real estate industry experts as well as HGTV celeb hosts that provided listeners with practical advice and stylish living for the home.

Krisztina's Staging & Decorating Philosophy:

"I follow the golden rule of staging and that is 'Keep it Simple'. I go for classic styles and clean lines because it's all about making those first impressions count when selling a home or placing one large piece of artwork in an entry that says 'WOW' and starts a conversation. I tell clients that 'Less is Best' when staging a home AND 'Less is More' when it comes to decorating a home!"
