About  Tricia

Tricia is an active real estate agent with Fathom Realty ​since October, 2018. Prior to then, she was with Keller Williams Realty for four years  at their Hillsborough, NC  branch office.  She has successfully closed over 30 real estate transactions, having  represented both buyers  and sellers.  Both  land, commerical,  and residential  properties have been listed and sold throughout the Triangle area of North Carolina. 

Property values sold or listed have ranged from $40,000 to $699,000.  She has represented buyers in new construction homes and previously built homes.  A long time resident of the Triangle area, she is aware of the market trends and has  participated in and hosted numerous Open Houses .  Home sellers have been assisted in their sale by her home staging services, whether it be decluttering, partial, or whole home vacant staging. 


​Staging certification and training was completed in 2013 with Home Staging Resource https://homestagingresource.com  Since that time, both traditional staging and virtual staging has been offered  to agents and  home sellers. Currently, she enjoys offering the more affordable Virtual  Staging services. With furniture rental easily exceeding $1000 or more for the traditional 3 month listing contract, the alternative cost of $25  per room when staged virtually is a much more affordable option.  She can work with your photograhper of choice, or you can be referred to an excellent photographer who also offers drone photography.  The  pricing for both of these options is again more affordable than the traditional staging method. 

Rationale for Staging in Today's Market

Why stage in today's busy and competitive market?  

Staging will bring buyers quicker, and a staged home can  yield a higher sales price for the seller.  Even in multiple offer situations, a staged home is often "behind" the selected offer.  Many buyers are not adept at visualizing a vacant home's potential, or able to visualize a decluttered home. A  well staged home in today's market is a  definite "win-win" for any  seller!

Are there any drawbacks to Virtual  Staging?​

Will the buyer feel deceived when the home does not appear as it does in the popular home search engines or in the local MLS?

It will be important for the listing/showing realtor to disclose that the home has been virtually staged in the photographs. It is always suggested that this be disclosed in the MLS and in the home search engines, as well.  Tricia suggests having copies of the staged home placed in the the actual home so that the buyers can again visualize the home's potential as they enter it when it is vacant. 

With the current sophistication of the virtual software now used, the cartoonish appearance is now greatly decreased. An expert in virtual staging can make it difficult to tell that the staging is virtual.
