Hi there, I’m Christine.
Owner, Davis Staging
My name is Christine Mathias Farnum and I’m the owner of Davis Staging, an award-winning full-service staging business serving Yolo and Solano Counties (and beyond!) since 2005. Davis Staging is a boutique staging business; you’ll always be meeting with me and the design plan for your home will be my creation.
My mission is to highlight your home’s architectural and spacial strengths, create a welcoming atmosphere that speaks to the desired lifestyle of it’s potential buyers, and forge an emotional bond that makes your home an unforgettable stand-out that rises above its competition.
To achieve this, your home will receive my individualized time and attention. No two homes’ staging needs are identical, even if they are the exact same floor plan in the exact same neighborhood. Thus, each piece of furniture, each accessory, each and every last detail of your home’s design plan will be curated specifically for your home, and will never be replicated in another house.
This strategy increases the perceived value of your property, the ultimate goal of staging. I love being a part of the team that presents homes so that it’s next owner falls in love with it the moment they lay their eyes on it.
When you chose to work with Davis Staging, you’re hiring an industry leader.
I am proudly serving as President for the Real Estate Staging Association’s Sacramento Area Chapter for the calendar year 2020. I was a founding member of the chapter and have served in leadership since it’s inception; prior I served as V.P. of Membership.
I was honored to be the recipient of the International Association of Home Staging Industry Leadership for 2019. This is a unique honor that few stagers around the globe receive.
I am also an affiliate member of the Yolo County Association of Realtors.

A bit more about me.
I’ve lived in Davis since 2000, moving here with my young family from the Detroit area. I love the Central Valley of Northern California, and am thankful every day for its beautiful blue skies and warm weather! I’ve lived in Davis longer than anywhere else in my life, and happily call my adopted town “home.” It’s a thrill to be able to contribute to the wellbeing of my community and serve my neighbors with this business I’ve grown.
My education and background are varied, ranging from photography to medicine, so I took a rather circuitous route to arrive at this profession…and I’m very glad I did. I enjoy every aspect of home staging and I am fortunate to be amongst those who can’t believe they get paid to do what they love.
Experts in a wide variety of disciplines affiliated with staging speak at Real Estate Staging Association’s Sacramento Area’s monthly meetings to ensure our members remain current in industry best practices, design trends, business management, and more.
Licensed, Insured, the works.
This is a serious business, and I treat it accordingly. This means Davis Staging carries the appropriate licensure and insurance. You can rest assured you’re working with a professional entity.
Constantly Updated Inventory
Staging isn’t the same as interior design, so trends don’t fluctuate as dramatically. However, styles do evolve…and Davis Staging evolves with them but routinely rotating out inventory to make room for new.
Fair, Friendly Pricing
I’m well versed in the staging industry’s pricing structures in the greater Sacramento area. While I’m not the least expensive, I’m also not the most expensive. Davis Staging is that last bowl of porridge that’s juuuuuust right price-wise…yet manages to look like it was the big bowl of porridge.
