One of the first staging professionals, Diane Keyes has been bringing her innovative approach to the real estate industry for more than twenty years.
Her unique talents have brought her to four-star restaurants, multi-million-dollar island get-aways, and thousands of private homes. And when they needed someone to prepare the state mansion for the Swedish royal family the governor’s wife called Diane.
She first began teaching classes in 1988 and has since taught her staging methods to many realtors seeking to fulfill their continuing education requirements.
Along with consummate staging advice, Diane brings understanding and insight to the complex psychological issues surrounding the sale of a home, a much ignored but vitally important facet of real estate sales.
Her new, critically acclaimed children’s book, Spirit of the Snowpeople, has just been released by DownEast Books. With several other books in the works, and her poetry being performed at the Center for the Arts in Bloomington Minnesota for the past three years, Ms. Keyes is not only a pioneer in the staging industry, but an accomplished author as well. Writing This Sold House was a natural step for Diane as she continues to find better ways to help homeowners sell their homes quickly and profitably.
