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!
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.
Amee Jensen (Occupied Staging) is a Certified Home Stager from Salt Lake City, Utah, where she worked as a Staging Consultant for several years.

Amee loves to travel and has visited fifteen countries with plans to see many more! Italy, Greece, Czech Republic, and the Republic of Singapore are some of her favorites.
