diva in the house the voice of real estate staging: Be Prepared Is Not Just a Motto for the Boy Scouts! Establishing A Relationship With A Furniture Rental Company - 06/24/08 04:49 AM
    I was very fortunate in my Staging Training years ago that my instructor Christine Rae made visiting with a furniture rental company a part of our time together.  This added benefit provided me with the necessary tools for when that first call from an Agent came requesting a staging of a vacant property.  I didn't have to go in to a panic or suffer on the job training as I knew exactly who to call and how to go about setting up that transaction.  My ability to answer the Realtor's questions with confidence helped to secure a long term relationship.

diva in the house the voice of real estate staging: VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR~WHATS IT DOING FOR REAL ESTATE? - 06/18/08 03:28 AM
Does anyone remember the song Video Killed the Radio Star?  Back when MTV first started ( yes, I do remember that event ), some artists actually saw a decline in their album ( yes they had those then) sales due to the fact that once they could be seen and not just heard, they were no longer as popular. 
Look at what the power of photos and video has done to the Real Estate Market.  The way Real Estate is being sold and bought has changed dramatically and nothing that I know of has had more of an impact then the internet.  … (4 comments)

diva in the house the voice of real estate staging: Virtual Staging...Now Why Didn't I Think of It? - 03/24/08 04:24 AM
   I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Barbara Moran the owner of Virtual Staging.  Virtual staging is not what many of us in the staging industry would think it is.  Barbara does not " stage " listings via the internet, what she does " stage " is the way Realtors use their websites and the content of their MLS photos.  Barbara discovered the need for this service while watching a friend view houses on the Internet.  One bad photo would cause her friend to completely disregard an entire home as one she would be interested in viewing in person.  This scenario … (2 comments)
