Amy Wagner, founder of Reflections of You, by Amy, says that she inherently knew how to stage a home after moving seven times before the seventh grade with her family. But instead of doing that as her first career, she spent many years as an educator here in the Jefferson County school system. She decided to leave her job as an educator after she had her second child and took a few years off. She got two certifications as a professional stager and began staging homes to sell, based off certain visual aspects of a house that act as emotional triggers. After staging people’s homes, the clients always wanted her advice about how to design their new home. That’s when Amy added interior design to the list of services she offered helping her clients even more. Her keen eye for visual space — plus knowing what potential buyers will see in a home — has made her business known for selling homes fast and for a great price. She learned a lot of her skills by watching her grandmother, an interior designer in Birmingham, particularly the way she focuses on the details. We caught up with Amy, our latest Interior Designer Crush, to talk to her about what inspires her — and she shares some great tricks of the trade with us.
