ABC's 20/20 - putting a new spin on a great segment - 06/16/07 03:27 AM
I got a call today from an ABC Reporter from New York City who was referred to me by Chris Connelly of ABC. Chris and I met during the filming of the 20/20 segment. The reporter wanted to know if Staging today in a slower market as we are experiencing pretty much all over the U.S. - was as important as it was nearly 2 years ago when the segment was filmed. Of course - I said - it is even MORE necessary. She had already interviewed Barb Schwarz at length - about current trends and stats. So even though the (21 comments)
Me-Me-Me - I have been Meme'd by a Meemer. . . - 06/16/07 02:59 AM

Koolaid Drinkers reply - there is more than meets the eye - Put down your glass and move on - 06/13/07 01:24 AM
I am replying to Kate Hart's blog here because she has not communicated with me on a personal level since she resigned from Stagedhomes.com as a Trainer. I truly looked upon her as a sister and really miss our relationship. Unable to separate me (just Jennie) from my role as a Trainer with Stagedhomes.com, she no longer trusts that I can actually just be me, and I am sad to report that I cannot blog on her sites as she is not open to hearing from me and I also don't want my responses screened or edited. If that has changed - (17 comments)
SOLD in 1 DAY!! Staging Works even in a tough market! - 06/13/07 12:54 AM
I love this business! Even in a "down" market, houses that are presented well do sell! We Staged a house about a week ago that was probably in its hey-day in the 80's. The yellow-gold-brown tile on the floors and kitchen counters gave the age away of this lady that was trying hard to fit in with the younger look of today's houses. The seller (flipper/investor) convinced himself that the 80's look would help bring a buyer - which just made our job as Stagers even more rewarding when we were able to transform a dated dame to a classy catch! His budget was (13 comments)
