OUR PURPOSE


Aprés Sea Homes was born out of a love for real estate investing and a natural eye for high style. With the shift of home-seekers deciding on a property online before they ever step foot in the front door, we recognized a necessary need for improvements to real estate listing photos. We have the vision to style fresh and airy spaces that buyers crave. The Aprés Sea Homes philosophy is not just staging spaces, but inspiring lifestyles.

Our clients are Realtors, investors, property managers and homeowners. Aprés Sea Homes bestows the same five star level of service standards for our clients as we do for the homes that we stage. We treat everyone as friends and will go out of our way to achieve property perfection.

Founder, Aprés Sea Homes

have joy.

My senior year of college at the University of Missouri I discovered real estate investing along with passive income and my whole worldview changed. After a few years in the fashion industry, I decided to get a real estate license. I love real estate so much that one license wasn’t enough. So I got it three more times and have been a Licensed Real Estate Agent in Connecticut, New York City, New Jersey and Maine with Sotheby's, Nest Seekers and RE/MAX brokerages respectively.

Primarily frustrated by bad listing photos, I started Aprés Sea Homes and have since staged listings and vacation rentals from beach houses in Maine to luxury ski chalets in Montana. I have also served as PM to rehab projects, some over a million dollars. Fortunately, my husband has also caught the real estate bug. With him, I manage our personal rental properties including our own Airbnbs of which we have received "Super Host" status every quarter with over 70 reviews, none less than 5 stars! I am an Interior Design Consultant for Model55 as well as an active member of the Central Florida Realty Investors.

You can find me scooting around on my Vespa to the nearest juice shop, dreaming up our next family travel adventure, or listenting to country music and playing with our sweet baby boy in the pool. After living in seven states in eight years, Orlando is thankfully and finally home.


encourage others.

Aprés Sea Homes is committed to using real estate as a channel to empower women. For female centric organizations, we offer short informal entry-level educational sessions tailored to your group focused on “what is real estate investing” and “the basics of staging the best house on the block.”


give back.

The idea that there is a greater purpose for us outside of what we do on a daily basis is a fundamental aspect of this company. From building a home for a family in Juarez, Mexico to granting wishes for amazing kids through the Central Florida Make-A-Wish foundation, we get the greatest joy out of using our God-given talents to bring smiles to faces of others.

If you know of a cause or family that could use a bigger smile, we would love to hear how we may be able to help.
