HOW IT BEGAN

Model My Home was born out of a need for Jana and her family to sell their home in the early 2000s. Jana realized that others were having trouble selling their properties, and professional Staging could be the answer for them as well. The company began out of her own home as she and her best friend dedicated their time Staging and transforming several homes a week.

Now, the company has transitioned to multiple warehouses and now has helped over 5,000 Homeowners, Builders, Investors, and Realtors in DFW Stage and sell their own properties. Model My Home loves helping sellers and has a fully trained staff and is one of the largest, most exclusive Home Staging companies in America. They just received the HSRA National Award distinguishing them as one of the Top 10 Home Staging Companies in America.

The HGTV series featuring Model My Home has been a big hit as they continue to help sellers transform properties into dollars throughout North Texas.
