Lisa Koenig, Owner of THE PROFESSIONALS Staging, has been beautifying spaces for over 25 years. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design, and also earned her Certification as a Professional Home Stager from the Home Staging Resource. HSR is one of the only staging training courses in the country accredited by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). Lisa is a member of RESA, as well as the American Society of Home Stagers.
Lisa grew up traveling extensively as an Air Force child and then later as an Army wife. She first came to the area in 1981, and then returned permanently to Colorado Springs in 1989. Lisa’s knowledge of the staging industry, Pikes Peak region, and the relationships she has built help to cement her as one of the area’s leaders in the art of home staging. She loves the fact that she is serving people by using her talent, expertise, and compassion to help make the home selling process a less stressful experience for the seller and Realtor.
Some of Lisa’s career highlights have included teaching classes on Staging to new realtors, being featured in an article on staging in the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph, and being hired to create a “green room” in the Marriott Hotel for actors Robert Redford and Jane Fonda when they were filming a movie in Colorado Springs!
When she is not transforming homes, Lisa enjoys traveling with her husband (especially to warm, sandy beaches) and being “Mimi” to their six grandchildren. Nothing keeps her young like tea parties, dinosaurs, and dolls!
Lisa-Marie Warner (Occupied Staging) is an HSR Certified Home Stager. Additionally, she holds an Interior Design degree from Saddleback College in California. Before she began helping homeowners as a certified stager, Lisa-Marie’s experience included working as a designer for such companies as Ethan Allen and Andrea’s Pink Chair. She brings her knowledge and experience of design into each home and creates a warm and inviting atmosphere using accessories and color to create that model home look buyers are looking for.
Lisa-Marie was born and raised in England before daring to venture solo to the United States in 1994, finally settling in Colorado Springs in 2007. When she’s not working or camping, Lisa-Marie is redecorating her house, driving her husband nuts, or cheering (actually YELLING) for her daughter’s volleyball team!
Tiffany Heritsch (Occupied and Vacant Staging) has been a certified Interior Designer for over 10 years. She loves helping others and making spaces beautiful and functional for clients. She holds her Master of Arts from Baylor University, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. Tiffany helped launch Wayfair’s online Design Services program and worked on both e-design and in-person interior design projects before joining THE PROFESSIONALS.
Tiffany is a Colorado native, but lived and traveled all over the world first as a flight attendant and later as military spouse, moving 8 times in 18 years! Now settled in Colorado Springs, Tiffany is excited to finally have roots here. In her free time, Tiffany loves traveling (literally anywhere!) with her husband and two kids, snuggling with her bernedoodle puppy, and trying to master high-altitude gardening!
Tanya Farmer (Vacant Staging) received her Associate Degree in Interior Design and Fashion Merchandising while living in Dallas, Texas. Her passion for interior design was passed on to her as a child, with a father who designed and built homes and a mother who had a natural talent for interior decorating. Tanya’s design skills flourished over the years as she applied her creativity to projects of all sizes, including full-scale home remodels throughout the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.
After relocating to Colorado Springs, Tanya has utilized her aesthetic talents for THE PROFESSIONALS to create gorgeous spaces that make home buyers fall in love. Tanya has two wonderful grown-up sons and is “patiently” waiting for grandchildren! She enjoys the outdoors with her husband and their dog, D’ogee, whether it’s hiking, skiing, or just relaxing around the fire pit in the backyard.
