Staging a Home
“You never get a second chance at a first impression!”
Jamie adds her "finishing touches" to a home she's staging, as featured in an article featured in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle Business section.
With artist’s eye and marketer’s creativity, I manage with each homeowner the preparation of their home for its Opening Day. The process of evaluating décor, condition, flow, even landscaping, is thorough and thoughtful, unique to every property. Project completed, the home enters the market, "Buyer Ready."

Jamie Columbus: 34 years in Real Estate
Real Estate Focus:
The Houston Barnard Neighborhood
Choosing to specialize in the neighborhood where I have lived for eighteen years, I have long standing professional presence in Houston-Barnard. Since 1995, I have sold or listed 91 properties on Ambassador Drive, Sandringham Road, Trevor Court Road, Georgian Court Road, and Esplanade Drive.
As past Chair and an active member of the HB Neighborhood Association and area Garden Club, I work to build and beautify HB, and to heighten its sense of community.
Owners of Rochester’s grand homes recognize the added value of my representation, as I understand the art and science of marketing and selling property. Visit my Houston Barnard page.
