Brenda Douglas


After many years in the hospitality industry as General Manager of several upscale resorts all over the country, I am aware of the expectations of clients: clean, updated, inviting, clutter-free, and most important the space has to have purpose and appeal to that TARGET market. The same applies to home buyers. They need to see your warm and inviting home as their "new home" and this is accomplished with proper and effective staging. Home staging is much more than cleaning and adding décor. It is creating a space that reflects the lifestyle of your target buyer. That may be a first time home buyer, a couple that is downsizing from a big home to a smaller one level, an extended family with an in law suite or a young professional looking for a trendy city loft. Understanding the lifestyle of your target buyer and then merchandising the spaces to touch the senses of that buyer is what we focus on.

Through my experience in the hospitality industry, then working as a home stager with New England Home Staging for three years, I have gained valuable experience in meeting the needs of home sellers. I have earned a reputation as a creative, innovative, and client-focused designer with an excellent understanding of identifying, addressing and resolving organizational needs.

Launching my new company StagedWorks® in January of 2012 is the next phase of building my personal brand. StagedWorks® mission is to work with and educate, Realtors®, homesellers, home builders and real estate investors on how to market their properties in order to bring in that home buyer, quickly and receive top dollar for their home.

I specialize in working with real estate investors on how to update older homes with the right finishes, paint colors, exterior finishes, and using the right decor and furnishings that will attract that target buyer.

Amy Mu


Amy Mu has been a the member of NHREIA for 4 years. She worked in a high tech company for over 10 years, working in many positions helping the company grow. Her last position was logistics, responsible for all the purchases that ship worldwide. Late in the summer of 2013, Amy was on a mission to find a house for her relatives to move to NH.  Within three months, she went to hundreds of open houses and showings. After that, she developed a strong interest in the real estate. She finds it fascinating that each house is so unique and characteristic just like humans. Amy started researching online for classes to learn more and attended the Robert Kiyosaki‘s Rich Dad, Poor Dad seminar. The class was costly but she believes it was worthy as she learned the basic fundamental concepts of investing in Real Estate. She started as a part time Real Estate investor in 2014, and two years later, she quit her job to become a full time investor! In her free time, Amy likes to play golf, enjoy a glass of good wine and meet other investors.
