Larissa Santana has long had an affinity for real estate, beginning with her graduation from a college that specializes in interior architecture in Brazil. After several years of working in interior design, she made a bold move to Massachusetts to pursue a master’s degree, and a chance occurrence with a real estate investor ignited her career.
“There was simply a dearth of high-quality staging for homes,” she says. “LS Home Staging & Interiors was born out of sheer need and belief that one could do it better.”
Santana’s aesthetic quickly drew the attention of top builders and real estate agents in the Boston area. Her style is modern contemporary, and the furniture she curates for each project aligns with that. “My clients appreciate my vision and the fact that I’m uncompromising when it comes selecting furniture for homes,” she shares. “Great furniture elevates a space.”
Since opening her firm, Santana’s success has only grown, and 2021 was her best year yet, with more than $120 million in real estate staged. She credits that success with the strong rapport she has built with agents and other professionals.
She has built a virtual rapport, too. Her Instagram account, @ls.home.staging, has amassed 18,400 followers since she started it four years ago. “It’s been an honor to be entrusted with a blank canvas for my vision in some of the most beautiful homes I’ve seen.” she shares. “I’m excited as to what the future holds for me and my team.”
