Who is Raini?

Raini Steffen, Home Designer

"I love taking something and using it in unexpected ways. 
Maybe I could be called a DIY Diva...
I like to update, re-use and re-invent pieces from your home... what I find stashed in the garage, at your neighbor’s yard sale, something I brought back from Bali, found at Restore...or who knows where.  I love the challenge. "

Gaining the nickname “Resourceful Raini”, through her experience volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of Ventura, Raini Steffen is ready to use her inventive vision to help you solve your design dilemmas. 

After assisting friends and family for years and successfully remodeling and designing three of her own properties in her spare time, Raini has taken the ability to style, stage and design from a part-time hobby and turned it into a way of life.

In January 2019, the Southern California manufacturing company she had worked for over 10 years sold to an investment firm.  They brought in their own financial and HR team and she lost her job as CFO and SVP.  Seeing this as an opportunity to spread her creative wings, Raini decided to step out on her own and established Raini & Associates, Inc.

A certified Home Stager (HSR) and REALTOR®, Raini understands various perspectives of the process and enjoys the challenge of meeting the style and budget needs of each client.

Raini loves to travel and brings back great décor pieces from all over the world.  She lives near the beach in Ventura County, and takes her two dogs to romp in the ocean every chance they get. 


The professionals of Raini & Associates focus on YOU and Your Property.  We work with you to execute your design vision (or help you find one) and implement it in your home or rental property, refine your home for quick sale, or help you settle in to a new home with ease.
