home staging: Lindsay Who? This Rehab worked for me! - 10/15/10 11:59 AM
Sorry I couldn't resist! :)
But seriously, when you are rehabing a property for sale take the time and get it done correctly the first time around!
We've all heard, thought, or sold properties "as is" however is that really the correct way or are we just trying to pull a Lindsay?

home staging: Oh No Faux!!! Boy was I WRONG!!! - 05/19/10 04:37 AM
Honestly I am not a huge fan of faux painting.  As a Murrieta/Temecula Professional Home Stager it is my job to help prepare real estate properties for the market and Faux Painting is a bit too personal.  Yes sometimes it can be tastefully done, however in many cases it can be overdone......incorrectly done and often times obnoxiously done!
OK so you see where I am coming from......that is why when a RE Client/investor mentioned to me that he was going to have the white kitchen cabinets fauxed I was a little surprised.  Don't get me wrong, I love Faux … (33 comments)

home staging: 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.
About three weeks ago I received an email from a home seller that was looking for a Home Stagerin the West Palm Beach area to stage her vacant property. WEST PALM BEACH????  OK, why am I surprised, you ask?  Well, I live in Murrieta, CA which is approximately 2,650 miles from West Palm Beach according to Yahoo Maps!

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)

I finally joined the PARTY! The "PARTY" is Real Estate Shows.  After reading many educational and helpful blogs by Jeff Turner and Maureen Henry I finally got my dancing shoes on (and for those of you that don't know me....I don't DANCE!) and joined the party!!  That's right after months of telling myself "just do it"  I finally did it and I am so glad I did!  Not being "tech savvy" I wasn't sure I could do this BUT it was so EASY!  If I can do it so can you.
