Theresa Vallier-ThomAS, ASP, ASPM, IAHSP, IAHSP-CB, LHS

Founder of Stage Right Home Staging

In 2007, a surprise life circumstance made Theresa Vallier-Thomas re-think her life’s path. During what could have been a mid-life crisis meltdown, she not only discovered the way to her authentic identity, but also her passion. And, as many people do when they find themselves at an unexpected crossroad, (well, after she followed her mother’s advice and stopped crying, picked herself up and washed her face), she says she looked in the mirror, took a deep breath and audibly said, “What do I do now?”

The next day, she had a “My Fair Lady” moment. She says, “I jumped to my feet and yelled (to no one), By George, I’LL BECOME A REALTOR”!! (Just kidding. I didn’t really say “by George”)"

The journey to that end landed her at, a home staging training website, and they “just-so-happened” to be conducting a home staging class… a mile from her home and just a few weeks later. So, she decided to go for it. “It will be helpful for me as a Realtor”, she told herself.

That Home Staging class changed the life of the 22-year restaurant industry veteran. During that class, her mind opened, and her life transformed. Just a few short weeks later, Stage Right Home Staging was born.

Since that October in 2007, she has earned her Master’s designation, a Luxury Staging designation, a Color Pro consulting designation, Life Coaching certification and has been coached and mentored by many business and personal coaches, including world renown Tony Robbins, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield, Louise Hay, Lisa Nichols, and no less than 5 of the original authors of the #1 best selling book, “The Secret”.

Since that time, Stage Right has grown from a few accessories in her basement to two warehouses with enough furniture and accessories to stage dozens of homes at a time – and Stage Right continue to grow.

Theresa’s time tested, expert advice and staging tips have been featured in local and national publications. As a certified instructor, she feels privileged to teach Realtors continuing education classes. Also, she routinely invited to participate on real estate expert panels with top experts in the field, as well as to speak and teach at local, national and international real estate events.

Mrs. Vallier-Thomas uses the tools and specialized knowledge she gained from her coaching education to effectively guide sellers through what is ranked as one of 3 most stressful of life circumstances – selling their home.

Theresa has had the honor of speaking on the very same stage with the legendary motivational speaker and coach Les Brown. In February 2017, she shared an international stage with Jeff Lewis (of TV’s “Flipping Out” Fame) at the annual International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) Educational Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In October 2018, the Stage Right team  had the privilege of being mentored by Jonathan and Silver Scott (better known as “The Property Brothers") and most recently, she has accepted the invitation to speak in Nashville, TN in October, 2019 on the very same stage as HGTV’s Candice Olson and BravoTV’s Carson Kressley and Thom Filicia, hosts of “Get a Room” and formerly of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” fame.

Stage Right’s client list includes hundreds of Realtors, dozens of home builders and real estate investors, thousands of individual home sellers and several apartment and condominium communities. Theresa and the Stage Right time have also been honored to serve non-profit agencies including Habitat for Humanity, Stephen Siller Tunnel 2 Towers Foundation, Delaware Housing Opportunity Fund, Inc. (DEHOFI) & Interfaith Community Housing. Through their business and Theresa's teaching and speaking engagements, Stage Right touches the lives of thousands of people each year.

Stage Right Home Staging is headquartered in Wilmington, DE, where Theresa lives with her handsome and charming husband, Shawn, her 2 beautiful stepchildren, Caleb (18) and Blythe (15), their 2 adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Maisy and Marley and 1 cuddly Tuxedo cat (who thinks she’s a dog), Karma.
