I just posted a story on my other blog about a condo that had by far the worst collection I have ever seen in it. The story is an internet legend and happened just two years ago. I couldn't even begin to imagine the realtor's reaction when he or she pushed his or her way into this mess. Take a look at the pictures and read the article...shocking. http://www.mystagedlife.com/
Stagers are great at being the bad guy and telling the homeowner in the most polite way possible to "pack up your collection so that the buyers can look past it." In this case (no pun intended) there was no need to rely on the stager.
