An agent whom I have teamed up successfully in the past called me recently to come and see a house she had just listed during an open house. She said this house was a beautiful four-bedroom farmhouse styled house. The property was nicely landscaped and it had a beautiful pool area. It was located in a highly desirable neighborhood. She also said it was way too country, and that feedback after showings were not good. Everyone commented on the over-the-top country theme. And, it seemed almost everyone commented on a wallpaper border in the kitchen – the design of the (22 comments)
Vacant Condo Sold in 4 days! - 06/21/07 02:58 PM
I was contacted by a woman from Colorado this spring. She found me on the internet, she wasn't sure but I think it may have been from Active Rain. Her dad had lived here in Connecticut and had passed away last September. She had come out her and emptied his condo and listed it with a local agent. She called me around the first of March, feeling very frustrated about the situation. She knew all about staging and really believed in it, she said the agent did not. She hired me over the phone promptly sent me a check, she told (27 comments)
A punch of Color! - 06/21/07 02:05 PM
I recently blogged about a large home that my company, Glastonbury Home Staging was hired to stage and I mentioned a wicker set I used the sunroom, but forgot to include photos. This is the set I picked up from Pier 1 Imports. It was a great buy but the color was the pitts! It was a drab grey color just awful. But I loved the style of the settee, a real updated look for wicker. So I bought the set and headed to Home Depot and bought a few cans of apple green spray paint and went home and had (29 comments)

I want to share a recent staging win! My company, Glastonbury Home Staging, was hired to stage a very large home listing a little under one million dollar by local Real Estate Agent, Ileana Sybert, of Dzen Realty, South Windsor, CT. She had found me as of a result of an article on staging that I had been interviewed for by The Journal Inquirer newspaper in Manchester, CT. I had provided in depth information and photos on staging and Ileana saw the article and called me knowing that this house really needed to be staged. We have been working on projects (15 comments)
