About Us


McNair Bishop, Owner

Drawing on lessons learned from my interior designer mom, and communication skills honed as a lobbyist for the food and advertising industries, I've grown Room by Room Staging & Design from garage to storage units to warehouse in less than five years.  Investing in continuing education, and networking with industry leaders, has helped shape our growth and business philosophy.

At Room by Room we approach each project as an opportunity to showcase "what could be."  By maximizing the marketability and buyer appeal of the listings we enhance, we deliver on our goal of providing clients a positive return on their staging investment.   

Our recommendations are tailored to each project, and take shape based on what our clients hope to accomplish, their budget and time frame, and how involved they wish to be.  That approach has served our clients - and our business - well.  

Each of the more than 20 realtors and builders with whom we've partnered to date has hired us for multiple jobs, and staged homes "sold above list" totals have topped $100,000.  We've also helped redesign clients with projects ranging from paint color and carpet selections, to reupholstering projects and room reinventions.   

Because personalized service is key on every job, I'm proud Room by Room has been awarded Houzz Best of Service for 2018, 2019 and 2020  based on consistent 5-star reviews.  And because promoting the integrity of the professional staging industry is important to me, I'm proud to have been awarded the RESA-PRO designation for upholding the industry's highest level of business practices and ethics.  

The Real Estate Staging Association, or RESA, is an international alliance of staging professionals, decorators, designers and real estate professionals dedicated to promoting excellence, accountability and professionalism across the industry.  I've been an active member of RESA's Greater Capital Area Chapter since it was formed, and volunteer as 2020 chapter president.  

It's a true privilege to provide a service to others - as part of an industry I respect - while doing what I love.
