Meet the Creator and Force Behind the Stagerie App to Make Staging Easy With a Simple Click!

Written by Nora Crosthwaite Posted On Sunday, 15 August 2021 20:22

Nora Crosthwaite spent years in software development and left to do something meaningful and positively impact the world around her. With no sales, marketing or real estate experience, 

After showing hundreds of homes since 2015, Nora realized there was a need for helping sellers prepare their homes for the sale and make them shine. Nora wanted a convenient online staging consultation but couldn't find the right fit. So, she created it: Stagerie. 

Nora runs a real estate team of three agents at Home Sweet Des Moines (brokered by RE/MAX Precision) and is growing Stagerie, available nationwide. Stagerie launched in 2020 and was one of six companies chosen for the Iowa Startup Accelerator program in spring 2021. Now, Nora has worked to make Stagerie the only occupied staging company that is a RE/MAX approved supplier and is actively looking for other partnerships. Stagerie has stagers in five different states, with more coming later this year. 

Outside of Stagerie and real estate, Nora continues to build the Des Moines community. She was a finalist for the Inspiring Women of Iowa Character award in 2021, completed the Greater Des Moines Community Leadership Program in 2020, and is a member of the Iowa Association of Realtors Diversity Committee. She focuses efforts on several nonprofits, such as Pi 515, Greater Des Moines Habitat for Humanity, and the upcoming KIAP Foundation. In her free time, Nora spends time with her husband Paul, teenage daughter Layla, and three cats, usually catching up on the latest Star Wars or cooking shows. She is a live music fan, martial arts practitioner, and loves to travel.
