“GraceAnn, Thank you SO very much for joining Starting Point realty for our Thursday’s “lunch and Learn”! Everyone agrees you were one of the best seminars and we loved learning more about utilizing home design in real estate sales. We appreciate your time and look forward to working with you in the near future!” Sincerely, Brianna W.

“Hi Grace Ann, I have taken one of your classes in the past so gladly get your emails. Know I can ask a realtor but remember how dynamic you were at the seminar. Think I can get some great help from you!” ~ Sandy

Client Endorsement

Many thanks again for all of the great information and advice that you gave us. It is empowering to look at your home from the perspective of being a seller. Or, in my case, of preparing to be a seller just in case something in my life changes that forces me to become a seller. One thing I know now is that I am nowhere near ready to move.
Take care and enjoy the almost Spring weather.


Shock? I could not believe my living room/dining room could look so good. I now have more floor space and the rooms are balanced.

Creatively “out of the box” thinking. I was a little skeptical, but now I’m a believer.

This was the easiest and best experience I have had with someone helping me decorate any part of my house!

Wanted you to know that we had put out house on the market on Monday this week and had 4 offers by Tuesday. Thank you!!! A job well done! Now we are working on an offer for our new space. Which I will be calling you for help in arranging!
