Tammy Hickey


“I am grateful for the team at New Market Home Staging, we work together effortlessly towards a common goal. There are times we walk into a home and think “there is no way we can do anything with this home to make it better” then a couple hours later when we walk out the home will look absolutely gorgeous. The entire team is a pleasure to work with.”

Tammy has deep roots in the state of Colorado, her family immigrated from Italy to the small mining town of Marshall, Colorado in the late 1800’s. She was born in Boulder and grew up across the street from the family homestead. Tammy is a proud mother of a son, daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters. With a thirty-seven year background in real estate, her career has taken her down many paths in the industry. She started as a title company closer and has been a loan officer, executive assistant for a real estate office with over seventy agents and held various positions at a real estate training company where she worked closely with the top ten percent of agents in the United States and Canada.  When Tammy relocated to Grand Junction, she decided it was time to get her real estate license for the second time. She is now adding to her passion and truly loves working with the design team at New Market Design & Home Staging.


Shannon Dykeman


“Working under the guidance of Tressa, as well as alongside the remarkable team at New Market, is easily the most satisfying job I’ve ever had! Being able to bring ideas together to present in a home in an elegant, cohesive way leaves us all feeling as though we have accomplished something great. Using my creativity, learning from others, mixing textures, colors, and styles truly makes my day. Occasionally, we think we might not be able to pull it off, due to the layout, or time constraints, but we “always” manage to create a design that shows beautifully to prospective buyers.”

Shannon Dykeman has been married to her husband, Jim, for 26 years and they have three beautiful girls. Their oldest daughter and her husband are expecting their first child this winter, making Shannon a Grandmother for the first time. Shannon has primarily lived in Colorado and has spent many years visiting and vacationing with family in Chicago, Beaver Island, California, Virginia, and Florida. She enjoys taking in the scenery and “styles” specific to the areas and then incorporates the styles into her own design ideas. Shannon enjoys selecting furnishings and decor that fit the space and style of whatever home she is decorating and/or designing.
