Selling Edge Home Staging Stages occupied & vacant homes; being prepared for the real estate market or already there.
As a residential contractor, Lynda's eye for creativity was built along side of the nearly 200 homes her and her husband, Joe, constructed over the last 25 years. Of course, these included the traditional ranch homes and bungalows. But in later years, Lynda and Joe worked with some of the best architects in Tampa to developed their own unique home designs. These designs were such a hit with the people of South Tampa, it led them to form a whole new company just to keep up with the demaind. Lynda soon developed a knack for dressing up the inside of their model homes so they would sell faster, and her love for staging was born.
Today, along with Jan, Lynda is doing what she loves as an Accredited Staging Professional. Her contracting qualifications and experience are a perfect addition to The Selling Edge, which will now be able to take on nearly any property rehabilitation or staging situation that may be required. This means remodeling or even entire room additions, if needed, can be a reality. The possibilities are truly endless.
In here spare time, Lynda uses her creativity in even more ways, creating hand-made wreaths and original costume designs for her Gasparilla parade krewe, Pair O' Dice. The Coyles, along with their son Danny, stay active in the community and spend time working with several local children and animal charities.
