resa: Hamilton/Burlington RESA Chapter September Meeting - 10/04/10 05:37 AM
 
The Hamilton/Burlington RESA Chapter met on September 27 at Tansley Woods Community Centre.
Our guest speaker was Laurey Fawcett from Sherwin Williams Paint. Laurey had a lot of information to share about paint and how to pick the right paint for your project.  She taught us how to read the fan deck properly and the types of finishes were discussed.  Unfortunately we were unable to have Laurey complete her whole 1.5 hour presentation due to the time allowed for our meeting.  This was a little disappointing.
Each member attending the RESA Chapter meeting will be getting a free fan deck.

The Real Estate Staging Association Hamilton/Halton Chapter August Meeting was a great success.  Even though it was still summer we had quite a few members show up.
We welcomed Sue Kowalski from "The Glass Candle" as our sponsor for the morning. Sue is from Brantford, Ontario but serves Hamilton/Halton as well. She shared how her candles would be an asset for staging homes since they do not melt in the sun.  They are made from palm wax.  She brought many votive candles with many different scents.  They can be made scentless as well.  Every member received two votive candles to take home.
