Hi there! I'm Carina Contarini, the founder and owner of Just Right Staging & Design. I am a Certified Staging Desing Professional, a real estate broker in Washington state, proud mom of two amazing girls and a happy wife.
Originally from Brazil, I grew up in Rio de Janeiro and lived for almost 6 years in Sao Paulo. I moved to the U.S. in 2015 and lived in New York City and New Jersey before moving to Washington State. I currently live in Lake Stevens with my two beautiful daughters, Julia (15) and Carolina (19), my husband and husband’s son Jordan (12).
Back in Brazil, I received a Bachelor’s of Education and built an extensive professional development and college education in pedagogy, special education and educational administration. In the United States, I dedicated 5 years to teaching and coaching teachers before I decided it was time for a change. After being in the Educational field for over 20 years, I got a Real Estate license in Washington State and started a new career.
With my first listing, I staged my client’s house with all my personal furniture and accessories (Yes… my house was basically empty for almost 3 months!!). During my open houses, I received a lot of compliments about the staging and had people asking for the stager contact information. In 6 days, we received 15 offers and my clients net $90k over asking price. After that experience, I slowly started building my staging business.
My next step was to become a Certified Staging Design Professional. Got my certification through Staging Studio and finally made it official: Just Right Staging & Design LLC was up and running. Since then, I have been focused on growing my business and helping sellers to get top dollar for their houses. I am also a member of RESA – Real Estate Staging Association and will keep learning to better serve my clients.
JRS&D is a home staging company that serves King, Snohomish & Skagit Counties in Washington state. Our goal is to keep promoting and supporting local business, investing in coaching agents/ clients about how staging adds value when selling a house and help sellers get the highest possible return on their investment. Let’s have coffee sometime and talk about your needs. My heart will be full if I’m able to point you towards the right direction and help you make your dreams come true.
