Hawaii Life agent Lori Decker has been staging, listing and selling Kauai properties since 2014. Lori has developed her design style and has collected local staging inventory to compliment Kauai’s plantation-style architecture and Hawaii Life’s Smart Marketing.
Once the interior and exterior of her client’s home is staged, Lori hires a professional photographer, launches the listing on the Kauai MLS, gives it a boost with Hawaii Life’s Just Listed marketing techniques, and personally hosts Open House sessions until the seller client is under contract to sell, and an escrow account is opened. Lori then smoothly guides the real estate transaction through the home inspection process to the closing of escrow, and to the physical transfer of the home’s ownership.
