Cindy is a maker, blogger, doer and entrepreneur. A third-generation small business owner, she has been working since she had baby teeth. At age 5, she negotiated allowances to change her sister's diapers. (Mrs. Lin still rolls her eyes when she tells the story.)
Cindy founded Staged4more® in early 2006 while she was working as a buyer’s agent. Through her experiences as a real estate agent, Cindy understands how to reshape raw spaces into stylish show properties that fit into buyers’ potential lifestyles and target markets.
During her 9+ years as a home stager, Cindy has received several notable accolades, including Make Mine A $Million Business Award, Sam Walton Emerging Entrepreneur Award, and was a finalist for Real Estate Staging Association’s Stager of the Year and Innovative Stager of the Year Award in 2009. Additionally, Cindy has appeared in major press outlets like the Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, San Mateo County Times, HGTV, and many other media outlets.
Outside of staging, Cindy has developed products (see our sister company EcoJoe®) that have appeared in press outlets like Apartment Therapy, CBS 5 News and Entrepreneur Magazine. Her work experience for Michael E Gerber, the author of New York Time Bestseller the E-Myth had taught her many important aspects of entrepreneurship.
In recent years, Cindy has worked for companies like Anthropologie, Ralph Lauren and Saks Fifth Avenue creating visual displays. She also freelances on advertising and editorial photo shoots. All these experiences help Cindy hone her aesthetics as a creative individual and enabling her to produce visuals that sell both online and in person.

|Home Seller, Kim H. said on Yelp:
|I found Cindy thru Yelp and went thru her website. Reviews were good so I called and made an appt. She was so friendly and timely with all apps from initial meeting to moving in and out. Cindy listened to our needs. We had a condo that needed to be sold quickly. She was able to respond quickly to all emails and meet our HOA’s requirements. When she was done staging, it was breath taking. She made it clean, modern, spacious and welcoming. Her moving crew were very efficient and mindful not to damage the walls or elevators. I believe due to her staging, our condo sold more quickly than anticipated. Our realtor had a showing of the unit before it went on the market. He called me that night to say we got an offer ABOVE asking and all cash. He said the new owners were loving the layout and the staging. So Thanks Cindy for your amazing work. If your looking for a stager, staged4more is the one you want. See Kim’s original testimonial on Yelp here See their listing 1 Mandalay Place South San Francisco here
