When Sellers Listen, Houses Sell!! - 02/27/07 09:03 PM
Hey everyone, hope all is well with you. I know that we all love to share our success stories with regard to Staging Homes for Sale and I am happy to be able to share two with you.

Staging Works, whether you stage one room or many!! - 02/14/07 09:50 PM
Hey Everyone Did you ever notice on DeSigned to Sell that they only really "Stage" 3 rooms in the house?? How many times have you been on your consults and you literally want to redo every little nook and cranny and every room? Is it really necessary?? Here is a house I staged that was on the real estate market for about 6 months. I was called in right after that wonderful price reduction. The house was originally listed at $305,000.00 and was just reduced to $284,000. Other houses in the development were going for $324,000.00, same house, 1 extra bedroom. This house (9 comments)
Consults and Staging and Marketing, OH MY!! - 02/13/07 11:25 AM
Hey all, do you remember the Wizard of Oz, Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh My?? Lately, that is how I have been feeling. A bit overwhelmed to say the least!! How does one keep up with everything that is involved with running a successful staging business? With the Spring market rapidly approaching, sellers are realizing that they need to make their listing stand out from the competition. Thus...the word is out... STAGE YOUR HOUSE TO SELL!! With that being said, my phone does not stop ringing. While I am thrilled, my life is completely turned upside down. How do you all keep (11 comments)
THIS ONE IS FOR YOU MAUREEN - 02/04/07 09:45 PM
Kudos to Maureen Henry for telling us about her fabulous Chestertown Buff. I had a job that desparately needed warmth added to the walls and I decided to try out Maureen's suggestion. I LOVED IT!! My clients were very skeptical because they absolutely love white, so needless to say that when a color like this goes on a white wall it can appear very dark at first. I did suggest (3) colors and samples were purchased and put on the walls to study. It took (1) week for them to decide if they should do this or not. I finally made the (20 comments)
Welcome Mary Jane Devlin of Botanical Accents - 02/03/07 08:34 PM
I want to extend a warm welcome to a new, well not so new member, of AR. Mary Jane Devlin of Botanical Accents joined AR from a personal invite from me. It was not until recently that she and I had the opportunity to work together on a home. My client's want top dollar for their home and they staged every room including new landscaping. I called Mary Jane of Botanical Accents and she presented her bid and just completed the house. Working together as a team with other professionals to complete the staging of your clients home is something that is invaluable. (2 comments)
