Melissa-EvansMelissa Evans designer and owner of Trend Staging specializes in Home Decorating and Staging in the Twin Cities. Staging a home helps potential buyers visualize themselves living in the property. By staging we bring new life to your home, from freshening up a room with a new color of paint, to rearranging furniture, or full home staging of vacant properties. Trend Staging’s main goal is to help their clients get a quick sale. Trend Staging helps home owners visualize and implement the best design for their personal spaces. Melissa is a graduate of Minnesota State, majoring in Marketing and International Business.

Melissa and her husband Andrew live in Lakeville and are busy raising three energetic boys. Melissa has enjoyed putting her family first by owning her own business for the past 15 years. Melissa is an active volunteer in her community as PTA committee chair, religion teacher and community event planner. Outside of decorating she loves entertaining friends and family. She spends the winter months in hockey arenas cheering on all three of her boys.

Trend Staging specializes in working with home owners and investors to meet their objective of selling their properties as quickly as possible to maximize their investment.
