Megan Morris was raised in northern California and spent many summers working with her mother, an interior designer in San Francisco. After graduating from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science degree, she worked in marketing and merchandizing as an art docent, investor, and business owner. Megan lived for several years in the Midwest and currently resides in Florida.
Megan has experienced the ups and downs of the real estate market firsthand. Through the rise and fall of home prices in California, Megan realized that the most successful sales all had one thing in common—the houses were staged. After moving to Florida and witnessing the upswing of the rapidly expanding market, it was evident yet again that the staged homes were the ones getting top dollar. Years later, as that market changed, again it was the staged homes that moved while the others sat idle. The process of evaluating, and later staging, homes, led Megan to develop a system that specializes in staging secrets. This book was written to give anyone the closely guarded tools of staging, enabling a seller the ability to sell any house in any market.
Megan has given seminars to several different organizations regarding staging and is regarded as an expert in her field. Several articles have been written about her success in real estate magazines, and Megan’s home was featured in Frontgate Magazine. Megan has also appeared on radio and television, including shows on HGTV and The Food Network.
