All About TLC Home’s experts, and how we can help you achieve your goals.
Terry L. Cooch, Founder
Terry founded TLC Home, LLC in 2008 as a Professional Organizer logging hundreds of hours helping individuals get comfortable and functional in their homes. Terry knows how to make a home attractive too! She developed her love of design and added staging to her services. Terry became an ASP certified Stager in 2012. Though now TLC Home solely offers staging services, Terry’s previous experience as a professional organizer gives her the know-how to offer practical ideas in her staging consultations, reducing the overwhelm and empowering homeowners to take on the tasks needed to get their home sold. She loves hands-on occupied and vacant staging too, and is always excited to hear her staged home sold on Day One, getting top dollar and often multiple contracts!
Darlene Fierstein, Home Stager, received her Bachelor’s Degree with a concentration in Interior Design from the University of MD. She has over 15 years of experience in interior design/decorating and retail management. She has worked in all aspects of the decorating field including furniture, custom window treatments, carpet, and room floor plans. Her previous jobs included working for an architectural firm, interior design/sales for a furniture store and store manager. After leaving her full- time position as a store manager for the furniture store, she became a stay at home mom. During that time, she ran her own window treatment business.
Lucy Sushko, Home Stager, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Maryland, College Park. After several years of teaching Special Education, Lucy became a stay-at-home mom, and raised two daughters. During that time, she found her passion for decorating, and quickly became the go-to friend and neighbor to ask for the most recent design trends, ideas and solutions. For the past 3 years at TLC Home, Lucy has been working closely with Terry, as a stager, and as a re-designer. Another passion of Lucy’s is shopping, which she LOVES, LOVES, LOVES… especially when she finds that perfect item for a client… even sweeter if it’s on sale!!
Laurie’s love of decorating began back in the late 1980’s. After college, her design skills developed from her work in furniture stores, as well as, with interior designers and builders. She was involved in space planning, and developed a keen ability to mix colors and textures with artwork and accessories to blend with customer’s furniture purchases. These skills were just what a local staging company was looking for and Laurie worked for a top staging company for 7 years, starting as Associate Home Stager and eventually as Lead Home Stager. TLC Home is thrilled to have Laurie on our team since 2019 and just loves the great results we are seeing from her long experience.
