- Cora Sue Anthony
Raised in Berkeley, Cora Sue Anthony discovered her love for design while
working in the theater. She began building and designing sets while attending
Spelman College in Atlanta. After having the opportunity to work in productions
in various theaters, she went to Broadway, worked as a stagehand and began
teaching stage design.
After returning to California in 1998 and starting a
family, Cora Sue met a professional home stager who taught her the subtle
differences in home staging. After quickly realizing that staging homes for
sale was her passion, she opened her own business, Anthony Staging. In a very
short amount of time, she became well known for turning everyday dwellings into
model homes that secure astounding sales prices for sellers.
