My name is Amy Brown, President/Creative Director of Simply Staging by Amy. I am a graduate of the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Course, taught by internationally recognized Home Staging Expert, Debra Gould, President of Six Elements. I grew up in the Springfield, Mo area and currently live in Nixa, Mo. It's a beautiful area out here and I was very happy to have found a home, for the second time, here. I am a blessed wife and mother of "fur kids" (1 beautiful dog, D'Lyla, and 1 feisty cat, Milo). I am very active with my local church and love serving my community. I love to be with my family, shoot our guns and ride our motorcycles with my husband, and explore new things I've never done before.
While my husband and I were searching for our home, we stumbled upon some very well staged homes and some not-so-well staged homes. It was then that I began having a passion for creating the perfect setting for homes to sell. I have found that I have a natural knack for preparing and spotting homes that are well staged. It would be my pleasure to help you stage your home to sell.
i have always had a creative streak. i love music and have performed since the age of 9; starting out on piano, moving to singing and playing clarinet in my highschool and college bands. i still sing at my church for worship services. I have been in customer service, in some form or fashion, for over 24 years. from working at mcdonalds in college, being an usher/bus greeter & singer/dancer at the andy williams theater in branson, mo., to front desk and sales manager at a local hotel and receptionist for a car loan company as well as being a customer service representative for a local hospital business office; i love being able to help people and solve any size problems.

"Amy did a Great Job getting my home ready for Christmas. She went through all the ‘old’ decorations and determined what should be used this year along with the few ‘new’ items I had picked up at Bazzars & Hobby Lobby. She decorated my Living Room, using a small tabletop tree instead of the much bigger one I had used in past years. (I Love it) My furniture doesn’t have to be moved. My kitchen, dining area & sitting are are esquisitly done. She even did my bathrooms & bedroom. I am Ready for Christmas I am Very Happy!
Evelyn; Springfield, Mo.
“Amy did a great job de-cluttering a very busy area in my home. We had used it for multiple purposes and it was cluttered. I gave her my vision and she took her experience and talents and ran with it. Within a short period of time she made my cluttered room come alive again and seem much more spacious. Give Simply Staging by Amy a call and you won’t regret it!”
Margaret; Lake Waukomis, Mo.

"Amy did a Decluttering job for me. I have downsized twice & had way to much 'stuff' with sentimental attachment. Also furniture to large for my now smaller home. Amy worked very carefully & patiently so as not to upset me, & turned my cramped house into a light & airy home. I am Very Happy!"
Evelyn H.; SPRINGFIELD, MO.

"Amy, when I decided to sell my home I read books on "how to prepare your home to sell" and "how to stage your home for a fast sale" etc. Helpful, but inadequate. Hiring you made all the difference. You walked me through the whole process and advised me how to stage MY home for sale, item by item and room by room while I took notes on your every suggestion. You guided me on what needed to be done in MY home, not some home the book authors used as examples. What a priceless roadmap you gave me. Thanks heaps Amy. You were one of the wisest choices I have made in this long life."
Lori M.; Springfield, Mo.
We were extremely pleased with the staging. Amy was very easy to work with, friendly, professional and accommodating to all our needs. Realtors and potential buyers had raving comments about how beautiful the house looked. We had multiple offers, and within 21 days we finalized a sale contract on our house. I think Amy should change her business name to "AMAZING STAGING BY AMY".
Lori p.; aurora, mo.
"Amy used our own Holiday Decorations to prepare our home for a small party and a Christmas family get together. Everything looks so nice! She did some decluttering, and some re-arranging of items to give it more of that special Holiday look. I am so much more calm and ready for Christmas. The angels and the snowmen are on display in our home."
CAROL M.; sPRINGFIELD, mO.
"Had the pleasure of bringing in Amy to consult with my sellers recently. My last listing we had several showings with multiple offers during our Open House weekend. Everyone raved about how well the house showed and I can't thank Amy, my photographer, and my sellers enough for doing such an amazing job on the house. I would highly recommend using Amy for your next listing."
"As a listing agent its very important to make sure my seller's home shows its best online. And working with Amy has been great for my business. She is always professional and courteous with my clients. I would highly recommend using her services for your listings."
Jason Yeager; Worley & Associates; Southern Mo.
"We got the opportunity to work with Amy when we were selling our home. Our realtor thought it would be helpful if we had a professional stager come in and help us stage our home so we could sell it faster. Amy was so professional and showed me exactly where to put things, how to arrange them, and even what to put in storage. Before she came, my house was bare and plain and I’m certain people would not have even noticed all it’s great features. After she came, we were able to present our house the way it should be, which resulted in our house being under contract in 4 days! We highly recommend her if you are wanting to sell and need help getting it show worthy or even if you just have no idea how to decorate your existing home."
Mary & Ron L; Springfield, Mo.
“Our realtor suggested we stage our home because of the size of our living room and the location of the home. I was overwhelmed with contractors and scheduling that I procrastinated and then found Amy. She was able to come out right away and get our house staged 2 days before the listing date. All of the furniture, accessories and artwork she provided were so beautiful and tasteful and they really enhanced the beauty of our home! Our house sold in 23 days. I would highly recommend Simply Staging by Amy if you are planning on selling your house.”
