Name: Edi Keech
Company: Staging Puget Sound
From: Auburn, WA (near Seattle)
Here is Edi’s Story – ENJOY!!
I am uniquely both a graduate architect and an award-winning home stager, with over 40 years’ design experience, located in the Seattle area.
I trained at Syracuse University and the Architectural Association in London. My design portfolio includes commercial properties in Philadelphia, offices in California, and innumerable private homes throughout the United States.
I am certified in Mathematics Education, and taught for many years at the Performing Arts School of the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts. Leaving the world of private education, I moved on to the Hopewell Valley School District (Princeton, NJ) where I developed the middle school computer science program and curriculum.
I honed my administrative talents in both New Jersey and California as Chief Operating Officer of a world-class medical practice. With my oversight, the company grew to be a multi-million-dollar enterprise.
Relocating to the Greater Seattle area (in 2009) allowed me to return to my first love: design. I used all my prior career experience to develop a full-service home staging company, Staging Puget Sound. I am a Lifetime Accredited Staging Professional Master, and a Premier Member of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP). In 2017, I was honored with Best Vacant Staging and Top Stager awards by IAHSP at the annual International Conference.
My greatest trial has been developing contacts and becoming a viable, productive business. Stubborn perseverance got me through those days. I love working with people. Each project brings a new set of challenges and demands. Stick with it! If your heart yearns to help others, if you enjoy design and if you are not afraid of hard work, then Home Staging may also be for you!
