Hi there, I’m Alice Tam Chan. Thanks for visiting me.
I am an Interior Renovation and Design Specialist who helps busy homeowners throughout the San Francisco Bay Area design and manage their home renovation projects to be completed within budget and get to the finish line quickly so that their families 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. When I hear about projects that drag on for months or even years, I literally shudder. I’m 100% motivated to get in, get your project done so we can all move on with our lives. 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, the 7th largest city in the state of California, but was virtually unknown back in the 80s. We weren’t even on the weather map on the news! 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 write 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. Stay tuned for publishing news in 2017.
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 11 year old Polynesian Dancing, competitive gymnast daughter, Alexa. We are always on the go, go, go and look forward to our annual trips to various destinations such as Maui, Paris, and New York to celebrate her summer birthday. I love to read, but since I’m always in the car, 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 Zumba and Mixxed Fit Dance Fitness classes.
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.

Look forward to connecting with you.
