MEET CECE BOWEN, ACCREDITED PROFESSIONAL HOME STAGER
Cece Bowen moved frequently while growing up. She lived on the East Coast, West Coast, and in Europe. With a degree from Boston College, she entered the world of corporate sales and marketing with Carnation/Nestle Foods. There she learned how to highlight features and benefits and to sell to a specific target market.
But Cece also had developed a love for decorating as a child, watching her mother transform each new residence into a home for her family. Cece’s home staging business, Transform Your Interiors, was born out of the melding of Cece’s corporate marketing know-how and her life-long passion for design.
IT ALL STARTED WHEN…
After living in San Luis Obispo, CA for 20 years, Cece moved to Atlanta, GA to start a new chapter in her life and decided to change careers.
In 2018, she became a certified Stager® through the Atlanta Staging & Decorating Guild. She took the leap of starting her own business, Transform Your Interiors, and was thrilled to do the job that brings her daily joy.
IN THE GOLDEN ISLES
Married in 2015, to her college sweetheart Doug, they both realized they wanted to live near the beach once all six of their boys went off to college. They started exploring different places, but realized they kept coming back to St. Simons Island because it felt like home.
In October 2019, they made the decision to move to SSI permanently and purchased their residence here. After a renovation, they moved in February 2020. The business, of course, moved with them. Cece has quickly developed a reputation among homeowners and local realtors for insightful and effective professional home staging and redesign. She continues to serve her clients by enhancing her own knowledge and skills, most recently becoming an Accredited Professional Stager (APS)® and member of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IHASP)®.
I truly believe that all of us live in beautiful homes with treasures throughout them. My love is finding those treasures and featuring them within your home!
When redesigning a home that you will continue to live in, I want the home to mirror who you are and what’s most important to you. When selling a house, Home Staging is truly the most important marketing tool by appealing to the largest amount of people. My design passion is creating spaces that evokes people’s emotions, where they can imagine themselves living in their home forever.
Transform Your Interiors Cece Bowen, is a true professional. I have personally experienced such “Value Added” by engaging her in marketing my listings. I am happy to recommend Cece to all agents and potential sellers in the wonderful Golden Isles real estate market.
