My love for houses and helping people has led me to choosing a career as a real estate agent. I grew up with a father who worked in the residential construction business which has allowed me to recognize both positive and negative aspects of housing. I feel it is very important to educate the buyer or seller about the process, listen to their needs/wants, and be their adviser. Buying or selling a house is a very important and challenging task to undertake. I will walk you through the entire process and make it as fun as possible while putting your needs in the forefront. I earn my client’s trust through honesty, patience, and hard work. I will see my clients needs through to the very end and will continue to provide value to the client even after a sale completes.

I chose to partner with Coldwell Banker HPW because they are the number one real estate company in the Triangle. With over 40 years experience, you can be assured that your needs will be put first!

Beautycounter is a mission based company that launched in March of 2013.  Beautycounter’s mission is to get “safer products into the hands of everyone.”  You may be wondering what does that really mean.  It means that Beautycounter is about educating and informing consumers on how to read their personal care labels.  Beautycounter provides an option to choose safer products for you and your loved ones.  Beautycounter has skincare, body care, kids and baby line and cosmetics.

The last federal law to regulate the ingredients in personal care products was in 1938. To date, the US have only banned 30 ingredients, whereas the European Union (EU) have banned 1400.  Therefore, it is perfectly legal for personal care companies to include ingredients that are known to be harmful to our health.  With that in mind, Beautycounter created a Never List that comprises over 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients that is prohibited when formulating their products.  Beautycounter creates products with safety and performance in mind.  When Beautycounter launched in 2013, there were 9 products; however now there are 90 products and more in the works.

I’ve been using Beautycounter for over 2 years and started as a consultant in July 2016.  I decided to join as a consultant after my youngest daughter started Kindergarten.  I wanted to find a job that would be super flexible so that I can still focus on being a stay-at-home Mom.  I already loved using Beautycounter products, so I thought what better way to share the mission and help our family out financially.

If you’re interested in finding out more about Beautycounter, I’d love to chat with you.  I also have products on hand for you to try.  You may contact me through email dsaizbeautycounter@gmail.com or phone 415.517.0112.  Here’s my personal website for you to check out the products: beautycounter.com/dinasaiz  Looking forward to meeting you!

I feel beyond blessed to be doing this job of telling your story since 2007.  I strive to create those ‘wow’ magazine worthy images that you treasure for generations to come. What is just as important, are those candid and authentic priceless moments, that happen in the blink of an eye. I also understand how important the little details, that you have spent so much time (and money) deciding and dreaming about are. In the end, it’s these laughs, tears, touches, questionable dance moves and loving looks that really matter.  It’s those priceless moments that you really want to document from your wedding day and I’m here to make that happen. 

 I strive to capture every moment possible and tell your beautiful story well. It is truly my privilege to both witness and capture the love and joy between couples and families. 

 I look forward to being part of your story whether local or afar!

I became The Jewelry Lady in 2007 when I became unexpectedly singled and needed to supplement my full time teaching income. My boys were 12 and 7 at the time, and though I desperately needed supplementary income, I did not want to miss PTA, football games, and other family events. That’s how I fell in love with the idea of direct sales: the control over my own calendar.

However, I fell in love with Premier Designs Jewelry because of the Christian values of God first, the focus of service over selling, and *of course* the gorgeous high fashion jewelry. Premier Designs Jewelry, in business since 1985, is a respected member of the DSA, and is dedicated to providing personal service and building relationships through home shows.

In addition to home jewelry debuts, I conduct style sessions for returning-to-work moms, lifestyle changes such as weight loss/relationship status changes, bridal party sessions, and prom accessory parties. Let me know if you need a Closet Makeover!

JCD - Fur Shrug.jpg

Frustrated that good vintage style dresses are either extremely fragile, the wrong shape for today’s bodies or too expensive, I turned to creating my own designs.

I started making clothes for my daughters back in the 1980s. They’re all grown up now, very much into the Vintage scene and my youngest asked if I could make her a dress.

So I returned to college, studied garment construction, pattern drafting and tailoring techniques, developing the skills to make any women/child a beautiful bespoke dress, jacket or outfit for any special occasion.

It’s so lovely to return to exhibiting at craft and vintage fairs, meeting so many new people.

And now I’ve started passing my skills on through a series of sewing classes; from beginners taking their first steps in sewing, to giving intermediates the confidence and experience they desire to create their own garments and designs.

I’m a mom of 2 young adults, a wife, a daughter, and a business consultant “by day”.  I have a very short commute to my home office … so I treasure how Origami Owl has given me connections with other women that I wouldn’t be able to have otherwise!

I Love What I Do

My favorite part of being an Independent Designer is being able to help others create lockets that “tell their story.”

Whether they are creating a locket to reflect their family, their hobbies, their career or to honor special people in their life, it has been an honor to hear their stories and to be a part of that process.

Another reason that I love what I do is that I have the opportunity to mentor and help others begin their amazing career with Origami Owl.

I would love to help you design something special!  Tell me, what’s your story?
