Meet The CEO

I'm not your average home stager - I'm an active real estate agent with a prior career in tech. I spent ten action-packed years as a highly effective product leader traveling the globe to work with Fortune 500 companies.

My journey in design began when I purchased my first home, a 1906 condominium in the much-coveted Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. As an avid interior design enthusiast, I invested countless nights and weekends renovating and restoring my home. 

Today, I'm following my dream and leveraging the experience gained from a decade in tech to offer white-glove design services to my clients, earning them more of their hard-earned dollars back when selling their home. 


Community and ethics are extremely important to me. Staging is a team sport! All our full-time employees are offered medical, dental, and life insurance benefits. We strive to hire a team that is as diverse as the community we live in.

Homeowners, Real Estate Agents, and members of our community, I look forward to working with you! 

Leyla and the De Young Home Team
