home stager: Psssssssssst! Look what AR Realtor's are saying about Home Staging and Home Stager's!!!!! - 09/03/08 07:54 AM
This morning I woke up to find an AR Featured Post by Kathy McGraw, California whom I had the pleasure of working with by home staging her listing in Banning, CA.
Kathy's post Tuesday Truths- Do you really trust other Real Estate Professionals?  is a must read about working with and learning from other RE Professionals...and in this case through ActiveRain.

The power of Active Rain and the AR community is amazing.  I never thought that searching online and finding AR would be such a blessing to me and so many other AR colleagues.

One week before Christmas I got wonderful news that a house that I staged got an offer 3 weeks after it was listed.  I just blogged about this yesterday.  Going, Going, GONE! The Staged Mobile Home Sold!!!

Great news! We just went into escrow on the property a couple of days ago, so I'll keep you posted once all conditions are cleared so you can remove the furniture.   Additionally, the selling agent loves the furniture and is thinking about buying it.
This property was staged October 25th … (35 comments)

home stager: What's in a "Naymz"? A lot if you want better search engine placement! - 01/03/08 11:22 AM
I wanted to share with you something I saw on fellow AR member Tom Plant's blog Enough Is Enough! I'm Outing Someone And I Don't Care About The Consequences .  Tom writes about an AR friend Bill Gassett that introduced him to better website search engines that can offer him better SE placements.  Some for FREE!

home stager: Sometimes all it takes is a little PAINT! - 10/14/07 03:40 PM
Oh what a difference a little paint and accessories can make!  The home seller was a little resistant at first but rewarded in the end! :)
We can suggest repainting or painting a room till we are blue(or in this case green) in the face.  Next time I will be sure to share this before and after with future clients.   

 The paint in the after picture is a little warmer then the photo shows.  My bad!

home stager: Life is like a box of Home Staging....or chocolate :) - 09/26/07 09:13 AM
Which room could you imagine yourself sitting in, dining in....or BUYING?  Here are some Before & After picture's of a Murrieta home recently staged by 1st Stage Property Transformation.

Staging vacant properties create's a warm and inviting atmosphere and allows potential buyer's to visualize themselves living in the home.  Let's … (22 comments)
