OK, maybe there could be a few other issues I could work on, but honestly "Laundry" is the biggie!  With 3 children, a dog (he has clothes, too) and a hubby we have a full load of wash with just what we are wearing at the moment.   Mulitply that by a few days and you basically get enough dirty cl...
. . . Leg Room, that is. When I'm working with sellers during a Walk & Talk Consultation I have to get them to understand the importance of editing their clutter. Many think that just putting away some of the papers on the desk or packing some of the personal photos is enough.  This is only part ...
Stagers say this everyday and real estate agents get it -- but do sellers really understand this? Most don't until you can show them a portfolio of before and after photos like the ones below that really prove this point.  Photos like these, where just the basic improvements are done, educate sel...

Stagers, have you asked agents or office managers if you could present some staging info to their team and been told that they "think their office already has a staging partner"?  Well, I've had this happen a few times and each time I want to shout that if you "think you do, then you don't!"  It ...
Today I was asked this question by some wonderful agents in Georgia. It is a question that I have been asked before by a variety of people: agents, friends, and media editors. Everyone wants to know the "quick fix" or the answer that "cuts to the chase." Why? Because we live in a fast paced world...
