Meet the Owner
Ginny Truyens is owner and lead Home Staging Consultant/Property Stylist of Feels Like Home 2 Me. Her love for decorating started when she was 7, when many children were looking at the Sear’s catalogue for toys, Ginny was selecting furniture, bedding, and decorative accessories to create rooms. You can still find Ginny creating inspiration boards and staying on top of what is on trend in the industry on Pinterest and Houzz. Her interest in real estate and the power of staging started over 20 years ago when she renovated, staged and sold her first property with such great success that she was able to do the same with many other properties making a sizable return on investment each time. After 16 years working as both an elementary and high school teacher, Ginny took the big leap and started her own business.
Ginny was certified as a home staging professional in 2010 and has been assisting home sellers, investors and real estate professionals with successful sales with their vacant properties, occupied dwellings, and estate homes ever since. Along with her core certification as a CCSP and her numerous Interior Decorating courses taken through Sheridan College, Ginny is dedicated to staying on top of the new design trends, technology, and marketing skills that are constantly changing the industry. She is a Member of the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) and a regular attendee of RESA annual conventions and chapter meetings. With a high regard for continued education, Ginny continues to add value to what she offers her clients.
Ginny received the prestigious award of ”Home Staging Rising Star”, for North America, by the Real Estate Staging Association at the International Home Staging Convention in San Francisco, Feruary 2, 2013. “I am so excited to honor Ginny Truyens with this award.
