Hi, I'm Tia!

For almost two decades, I’ve had a passion for color, design and creating beautiful surroundings and I was certified in image consulting in 2003 and then as a home staging expert. I love taking ordinary homes and transforming them into something truly special where buyers will say “Wow, I could live here!”. I like to work fast and efficiently and often it’s simple changes that have the biggest impact.

I look forward to being a part of your “get it sold” team!

Warmest regards,


Staging isn’t a luxury or a mystery - it’s a necessity!

If you look at a sampling of home listings on-line you can easily tell which ones are staged and which are not. An unstaged home is difficult for your photographer, seller and buyer because it reflects minimal effort and lack of professional positioning for the market. Buyer’s will not be able to see the property’s full potential as their home. A beautifully staged house, however, will build your brand as a professional realtor and create loyalty to you from your sellers which means more referrals, faster and higher offers and a polished reputation.

What services do we offer?

The Walk & Talk

A must for every home that is occupied! Your seller will have a one hour walk through consultation that will leave them with an action item list, confidence and motivation! And yes, I’ll address any uncomfy topics such as pets, unsightly decor, dead plants, dirt, etc. so you don’t have to, which preserves your relationship with your seller.

Occupied Home Accessory Staging

Beyond the Walk and Talk appointment, some homeowners just don’t have the needed accessory items such as fresh towels, throw pillows, plants and other decorative touches that are necessary to truly create a picture perfect photo shoot. Home Staging Express will provide photo prep staging which includes furniture placement and necessary decorative items so your listing will shine above the rest!

Vacant Home Staging

A Home Staging Expert will prepare the vacant home for sale with any needed furniture and decorative items to make a warm and wonderful impression on your buyers. Marketing a vacant listing can be hard, that's why Home Staging Express can prepare the vacant home for sale with any needed furniture and decorative items to make a warm and wonderful impression on your potential buyers.

Active Listing Refresh

Do you have a listing that’s been on the market without an offer? As a professional stager I can refresh the listing with more enticing interior design to boost the house’s market presence and get that buyer through the door!

Special Occasions

Real estate agents sometimes host client appreciation events and decorating is where we can help. Making your party space warm and inviting, and even sparkle, will leave your guests impressed! For holidays and seasons such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring, July 4th etc., we offer decorating magic for your office or event venue. We even decorate office Christmas trees including shopping for the ornaments taking that to do item off your list.

"In today's hot real estate market, you may think home staging is an unnecessary expense but I’m here to tell you that is not the case. Making your listings stand out means the difference between getting an offer and getting a great offer. Tia Warren with Home Staging Express is someone I would wholeheartedly recommend for staging service. Tia makes the homeowner feel very comfortable; she’s not demanding like many stagers seem to be. My clients were very receptive to her ideas, they acted upon them and we were able to get offers quickly and usually above the listing price. If you want your listings to be the shiny penny of the bunch, give Tia a call!"
Tia is so polite and supportive with the sellers. She breaks down each room for them in an easy-to-follow format and it feels like a great team effort to get the home ready to show with our best foot forward. It takes the job from overwhelming to approachable, and the sellers are being assigned "homework" - moving furniture or storing household items - without feeling like it's a task. Everyone leaves the meeting excited about her suggestions, and the house looks terrific for pictures!”
"I can not speak highly enough of Tia Ralston with Home Staging Express. I am a realtor and Tia did such a beautiful job staging my client's home. She made each room seem more spacious and beautiful. Her wonderful accents made all the difference. The home photographed and showed beautifully. My seller received a full price offer the first weekend. The entire experience with Tia has been great and I can't wait to work with her again. She is a consummate professional with outstanding communication skills. I would highly recommend Tia for all of your Home Staging needs!"
