Joké Durojaiye

Founder and Creative Director

 

The Seattle area has been home to my family since the year 2000. I love the diversity of the beautiful Northwest and genuinely enjoy the people I get to meet in the course of work and play.  When I'm not busy designing and running the business; the most meaningful moments to me are the times spent enjoying little everyday things and being fully present with family and friends regardless of what we are doing.

 

Two decades of experience in the design industry and as a Licensed Real Estate Broker in the Seattle area have prepared me well for taking on my passion and natural talent for enhancing homes. 

Having taught Home Buying Classes to both first time and seasoned home buyers on the East-side and representing several of them along their journey to successful home ownership in tough market conditions; I learned first-hand the psychology, art and business of home selling and continue to stay informed with new regulations and technology of the ever-evolving real estate market.    Expert knowledge of the local market and an understanding what appeals to the demography that makes up your target audience means I am able to capture your ideal buyer with a home thoughtfully staged with them in mind. 

My true passion lies in making a positive impact on everything I touch and everyone I meet.  Using creative space planning and design to connect aspiring home buyers with their dream homes and optimizing the home sale process for sellers; allow me the privilege of doing what I enjoy the most. I am also honored to add value to the business of my Broker partners. 

 

Let's work together to make buyers fall in love with your home at first sight with lasting impressions that translate to offers.

Stager

I am a native of Kirkland, Washington and have spent many years living in and around Seattle. My family and I now reside just outside of the city and enjoy spending our free time traveling, camping, crabbing and skiing.

I earned my degree in Apparel Design at Seattle Central College . I have run a side-business as a seamstress for over 10 years and love the fun and unique personalities this opportunity brings me.  I have also worked as a sales representative selling wine, beer, and cider from small, family-owned businesses and have earned real-life experience in sales and marketing with people from all over the world. 

 

I have a passion for learning and am always looking for growth and adventure. In addition to earning my certification in home staging, I am also a licensed real estate agent. I take great pride in being able to offer my clients a trustworthy and experienced opinion on the local market. 
 

My drive is built on my love and passion for design and customer service with a focus on giving my clients a warm and memorable home staging experience. 

I enjoy getting to know our clients, listening to their stories to help bring ideas to life. I look forward to working with you!
