About Us

Debra Hippler


Hello, my name is Debra. I am the owner/designer of Staging 2 Sell It.

I acquired my design degrees from Columbia and Colorado, and have put them to use flipping properties with my husband David.


When I am not staging homes, I spend all my extra time helping remodel our home at the lake. It has definitely been a labor of love that has taken us 10 years to turn it into our dream home.

Alushia Fitzgerald

Hi there, I'm Alushia (a-lou-sha, I know uncommon right?). I'm a designer, real estate photographer, and blog writer.

For years I called Chicago home where I earned my design degree and worked in real estate development. I also spent some time in KCMO and South Korea, where I met my husband.

When I'm not focused on all things design I enjoy traveling, especially back to New Zealand with my husband, going to rock concerts, and spending time with our dogs Maddie and Daisy.
