Meet Isabelle– A Ft. Lauderdale ASP® accredited Home Stager. As a Realtor® for 10 years in South Florida, she has experienced the frustrations and lack of vision most buyers have when a homes interior and exterior spaces aren’t properly defined. “Color and clutter make a huge impression on buyers." Working with existing furniture in an occupied home is an area of expertise for her. “De-cluttering, rearranging furniture and adding a new color palette makes the ‘home’ become a marketable product buyers can relate to.” With a natural eye for color and light, her vision always clears the way for buyers to see the houses best attributes.  Isabelle was born and raised in South Florida. The daughter of French Canadian natives she speaks French fluently. After graduating from St Thomas High School she attended FAU with a Major in Marketing & Business & a Minor in Real Estate.

Isabelle is a mother to three beautiful daughters, an active licensed Florida Realtor®, ASP® accredited Home Stager & a member of the International Association of Home Stagers. In 2016 together with her business partner, Tamara Irvine, they co-founded New Direction Home Staging & Consultants, Inc. Their business office is located off Marina Mile Road in Ft. Lauderdale. Since opening, they have successfully staged several homes and a Motor Yacht.

Meet Tamara– A Ft. Lauderdale ASP® accredited Home Stager. As the daughter and niece of single family & multi-unit investors in Miami, Homestead & Ft. Lauderdale, Tamara gained hands on experience of the many dynamics of real estate at an early age. She learned getting the “most bang for your buck” makes a successful transaction. Location, pricing, market trends and aesthetic appeal sets the stage for a quick sale and maximizes the potential sales price. Purchasing her first home at 25 and buying and selling houses of her own, she has a first-hand perspective of both buyer and seller needs. Born and raised in Miami and moving to Ft. Lauderdale & settling in Weston, Tamara has a lifelong connection with South East Florida. “South East Florida has the most beautiful cities to live in!” As a lifelong resident she has a keen sense of how these cities evolved over the past 4 decades. “I remember the nostalgia of South Beach in the 80’s, the old Hollywood Beach, riding my bike down Old Cutler Road, boating on the bay off Key Biscayne every Saturday and living through Hurricane Andrew in 1994. After getting married and raising my daughters in Ft. Lauderdale and Weston I have LIVED South East Florida!”

Working in the Marine industry for 15 years she has been involved in over 600 million of dollars of sales transactions. Married to a marine industry leader, she has an acute understanding of yachts along with Ft. Lauderdale's waterfront real estate. Sensitive to the charitable needs of our community she has donated personal time with local charities and assisted her husband with charitable donations and services for marine industry needs. 

Tamara has received many sales awards in the Direct Sales Industry, worked as the New Yacht Sales Coordinator for a large yacht brokerage firm, is an active licensed Florida Realtor®, ASP® accredited Home Stager & a member of the International Association of Home Stagers. In 2016, together with her business partner, Isabelle Vetter, they co-founded New Direction Home Staging & Consultants, Inc. Their business office is located off Marina Mile Road in Ft. Lauderdale.
