Meet The Barndollars of Showhomes Houston

VoyageHouston posted this story about the Barndollars: Meet Pratt and Shelley Barndollar of Showhomes Houston

Today we’d like to introduce you to Pratt and Shelley Barndollar.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Pratt and Shelley. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Pratt and I have been married for 32 years and have moved over 10 times. In that time, we’ve purchased and sold numerous homes… which we either renovated or updated all of them. I have a certification in Interior Design and am also a certified Kitchen and Bath Designer….now I’m a certified Real Estate Stager.

So, when Showhomes Houston came available for purchase…we jumped on it! We absolutely love owning our own company and we are so thankful that we can bring our expertise of our many moves to our clients. We know how the seller and the buyer is thinking. We offer so much more than just staging to our clients…we offer peace of mind and our experience of over 32 yrs. of being exactly where they are.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When you own your own company, there aren’t enough hours in the day. When you get home from either a staging or meeting a prospective client, there are a thousand other things that you have to do to keep your business going forward.

Today, social media plays a huge part of any business, esp. our business as it is so visual.

Please tell us about Showhomes Houston.
Showhomes Houston is a luxury home staging company. Our specialty is staging for estate and luxury homes.

I believe the thing that sets us apart is the fact that we are a franchise…that comes with many benefits, The biggest is the continuing learning that you have with owning a franchise.

I think the thing I am most proud of is our listen360/yelp/houzz scores. Pratt and I are conscientious and we will only give our clients 110%!! That gives me the biggest joy of all…knowing we are able to help our clients with any of their needs from painting, updates and staging!
