New Servers Coming Online Monday Night, April 26th, (Site Will be down from 11pm-3am) - 04/26/10 01:20 PM
I'm sure if you are an regular to ActiveRain, as I am , you have noticed now increasingly difficult it has been to login in, create blogs (with photos) or even leave blog comments on articles of interest. Well, the good people of ActiveRain are doing something to resolve the matter. As you will see below there will be an interruption in service tonight as they work to install new servers. I believe, since I became a member ( 1 year ago? ) ActiveRain has grown by 50, 000 additional members. Now that's truly amazing! I spread the word to everyone (11 comments)
I'm telling the truth ... Part 2 with more photos. - 04/24/10 11:25 AM
As I had mentioned in my post last night, I was experiencing a few glitches with the ActiveRain site, so here I am this morning to follow up with a few additional photos from the lovely home we worked in this week. Not all home owners have the luxury of moving just for the sake of moving. In this particular case, although the senior is less senior and more "boomer" than some we have worked with, she is putting a plan into place for her handicapped adult son. She wants to be sure he is close to family and has goods (9 comments)
I'm telling the truth ... I swear. - 04/23/10 11:35 PM
This is the third home is as many weeks that we have staged for a senior. This home had solid bones, well maintained property and house. It had lovely furniture, art, and things we could really work with. The owner, was very open to the idea of staging, which is often the biggest battle when staging any home. Well, we went in on Tuesday afternoon and in just 4 hours myself, Louise Garai and our assistant Lori, had completed this 4 bedroom home. Wednesday morning the photographer took the photos and by Wednesday afternoon the agent had the listing posted ... (15 comments)
Redesign - lands firm offer for 76 year old in just a weekend! Before + After's - 04/19/10 08:11 AM
Unlike the last senior client we had, this elderly gentleman was enthusiastic about what we were about to do. Living alone with the occasional weekend visit from his handicap son he was ready to downsize into a smaller home and was prepared to do whatever it would take to get his current home ready to sell. He had declutter a few key places within the home that required him to sift through papers, photos etc, so it allowed Home Harmony's team to move quickly though the entire house in just a 1/2 day staging. All the while we were staging the (6 comments)
Redesign - gets 82 year old her price in just 3 days! B & A's - 04/15/10 10:10 PM
Despite meeting with some resistance, Home Harmony was able to preform a little redesign magic and win over it's 82 year old homeowner. The owners daughter had talked to her about all the things we might do to change her home. The agent, having worked with us many times, told the owner she placed her full confidence in us but despite everyones efforts we still had a little trouble getting our way. So as good stagers do ... we worked within our limits and still delivered. The owner wanted nothing to do with us making "more holes" in the walls. Even (10 comments)
ALL ABOARD, fast track to SOLDcity! - 04/09/10 06:52 PM
Have you been TOOTING YOUR OWN HORN? If you are anything like us, you have probably done tons of promotional emails, trade shows, WALKED (the line) in and out of every Realtors office in a 200km radius, provided company/country stats, shown books full of before and afters, have testimonials from real people who swear staging was their TICKET ( to a speedy sale) and despite being DERAILED every now and again, you vow to continue till you have converted everyone on the WRONG SIDE of THE TRACKS. Am I right?
It is beyond me why some homeowners and Realtors still (9 comments)
Coming off a sugar high ... SWEET! - 04/05/10 05:37 PM
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter holidays with family and friends. I am so fortunate to have family and friends that are like friends and family to be able to combine such holidays and spend time with all that are near and dear to me. Living in the country is a wonderful place to celebrate Easter and the fact that we have the largest and probably most famous Sugar House ( www..sucreriedelamontagne.com ) in all of Quebec located within walking distance of our home just makes it ideal. Everyone gathers at the house and we set out with strollers and on (2 comments)
