Meet Your Design Team

Stephanie Bensley
Inspiring homebuyers to create their dream home is a privilege Stephanie does not take lightly! As a Certified Design Consultant Professional and one of the first designers to receive that certification in the country, Stephanie is skilled in homing in on a buyer’s style while ensuring functionality. Over the past seven years serving as the Design Consultant in the Coastal Virginia region, Stephanie’s favorite moments in the Design Gallery are when a buyer sees their selections come together and they have that “a-ha!” moment of experiencing their dream home coming to life. Stephanie is a local in the Coastal Virginia area, born and raised in Chesapeake, VA. She is a proud fire wife and mom to a creative genius teenager. When she’s not at work, Stephanie loves cozying up on the couch reading fiction while enjoying a glass of wine or online shopping, this endeavor also accompanied by wine. But she’d rather be off the grid exploring a Caribbean island.
Susan Barker
Susan discovered her passion for interior design as a teenager, when she would rearrange the furniture and paint rooms when her parents were out of town. Her love of the mountains led her to Appalachian State University where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in interior design. After falling in love with the Myrtle Beach area during summer vacations, she decided to settle there after graduation and now has over 30 years of experience designing and renovating interior spaces all along the Grand Strand. In 2018 she was given the opportunity to join Chesapeake Homes as a Design Consultant Professional. You will often hear her tell homebuyers that she now has the “best job in the world”. For the past 5 years, she has been able to bring enthusiasm and excitement to the design process. She is proud to guide homebuyers through their selections and to help them realize that they are not just building a new house but creating a new home. When not at work, Susan enjoys being outside, cooking, and making people laugh. Her favorite thing to say is: “Get ready to have fun”!
Jennifer Carter
Jennifer was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland where she later left to attend the University of South Carolina. Upon arriving in the Carolinas, she immediately knew this would become her home. She has since raised two children in Myrtle Beach and has a full background in stellar customer service. Jennifer owned and operated a photography company for several years prior to managing a hospitality design firm. Because of her eye for detail and dedication to those around her, Chesapeake Homes hired her in 2020 to be a Design Consultant. In 2021, she earned her DC Pro Certification. Jennifer treasures this beautiful blend of working with buyers and assisting them in designing their dream homes. When she isn’t helping buyers, she’s likely at home with her family and pets or catching a live music event somewhere in the community.
Ramey Masino
As an award-winning Design Principal, Ramey Masino acquired a diverse background managing projects from Log Homes in the New Hampshire mountains to City Lofts in Boston, and Coastal Estates on the Outer Banks. She now prides herself in guiding future homeowners through the Personalization Experience with meticulous care. Ramey finds great joy in helping clients bring their visions to life with Chesapeake Homes, serving over 8 years in 2 divisions. Feel at ease knowing when you step into the Raleigh Design Gallery, you’ll be welcomed into a pressure-free atmosphere. With two kids and an elementary school P.E. teacher for a husband, at home Ramey has learned how to keep the tranquility amongst the chaos of flying dodgeballs. She will make your design experience just as stress-free, and maybe even a little fun! She’s looking forward to working with you. Thank you for choosing Chesapeake Homes!
