As the founder and owner of Bella Casa Staging & Redesign, Lisa A. Pelc is a leader in the home staging industry. Although she began in the interior design world early in her college life, she left her creative aspirations in order to explore science, earning a bachelor’s degree and quickly moving into the semiconductor industry, starting a promising job in 1992 as an Industrial Engineer in Dallas at the well-known Texas Instruments. In 2009 she entered the aerospace industry as an Industrial Engineer at Raytheon. The economic downturn in the aerospace industry in 2012 was the final push she needed to jump off the corporate ladder and start her own company.
“I just jumped”. I said, “I’m going to do it and here I am.”
Pelc’s confidence moved herself and her family to Melbourne, Florida, giving herself a new perspective, a place where she could focus on design and family. That confidence, combined with her passion and natural knack for design, lead her to serve as the 2016 Florida State President for the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). In 2017 Lisa was appointed to the Board of Advisors for the Home staging and Redesign Association (HSRA). As a leader of this elite global community, Pelc has garnered the attention of professional home stagers and other real estate professionals from around the world.
Pelc can be seen on a new series for the FYI channel, “Zombie House Flipping”. Filmed in Orlando, her and her team at Bella Casa professionally staged all 8 properties on the first season. Her ability to work with a wide variety of homes, each with their own distinct style and character, has made her a leading professional in this competitive industry.
Staging homes allows Pelc and her team to show the potential of a property, transforming a house into a home, helping spaces tell a story to each person that walks through the door.
