Hi there, I’m Alice Tam Chan. Thanks for visiting me.
I am a Home Renovation and Design Specialist who helps busy homeowners throughout the San Francisco Bay Area design and manage their home renovation projects. My goals is to get your project completed as quickly as possible so that you and your family can get back to living ASAP!
I am self-diagnosed as having house A-D-D which means, I cannot bear hanging out at the same house for too long. I literally shudder at the stories of projects that drag on for months or even years. I’m 100% motivated to get in and get your project done as quickly as possible so you can enjoy living in your new and improved home. Can you see how my no-nonsense, impatient nature benefits you greatly as a client.
Where it all started…
I have been a design enthusiast since I was 10 years old. That was when my parents purchased our family home in Fremont back in 1980. At that time, there was a ton of development in Fremont with model homes at every community. I was obsessed with visiting model homes. I would make my parents take me, I would go by myself, I made my friends go with me. Did I say I was obsessed?
My love for model homes inspired me to “stage” my own homes for sale before I even knew what home staging was. Over the years, I have successfully prepared and sold four of my own personal residences, two before becoming a Professional Home Stager in 2003. Since then, I have consulted on millions of dollars worth of real estate sales and as a result, clients have been reported doing the happy dance all the way to the bank! #truth
My experiences inspired me to create The Renovation Planner™ which is an amazing framework for planning and managing your home renovation. It is the only planner that guides you through your home improvement process from start to finish. Stay tuned for publishing news on my book, MAKE EVERY BUYER WANT YOU, How to Create an Irresistible, Market Ready Home that SELLS, which teaches home sellers who are willing to do whatever it takes to get their listings SOLD, enjoy massive results.
Aside from managing private client projects, I have also lent my skills to the small screen as a Production Designer for HGTV’s Flip It to Win It and as a Co-Host and Interior Designer for HGTV’s 2013 reality real estate show, Power Broker. Yes, I have created those uncontrollable, O-M-G, ugly cry moments that the network and audiences love.
On a Personal Note…
I am a mom to my 14 year old high school freshman who recently retired from competitive gymnastics and is currently pursuing new heights in pole vaulting. I love to read, but since I’m always on the go, Audible is my best friend. I am a deep tissue massage connoisseur, enjoy a good yin yoga sesh and as time permits, you may find me participating in Dance Fitness classes – Twerkhitian anyone?
I want to help you with your home makeover.
I believe creating a “home” is a holistic process which includes renovating your home to suit your personal lifestyle while always keeping in mind resale value for when that time comes. I also believe in enjoying the most up-leveled lifestyle experience in your home you can afford. Your environment has an incredible impact on your every day life so let’s make it count!
I’m always amazed at what we can accomplish in each of our projects, even when it feels like we’re squeezing blood out of a turnip in terms of budget. I promise our experience and expertise will provide you with a result that you could not create for yourself…well, definitely not within the time frame we can complete it in and with little to no stress on your part. Lucky me, I get to shoulder all the rollercoasters of emotions that come with renovating a home on your behalf.
