home stager in kitchener waterloo: 2011 RESA Canadian Rookie Stager of the Year! - 01/27/11 11:40 PM
So I don't often brag in my blog, but I've been told I need to learn to toot my own horn a bit louder sometimes. 
I've just returned from 5 days in Las Vegas, where I attended the two day RESA Convention, plus the additional one-day Certified Staging Professionals Convention.  Both were incredible learning experiences, and I've returned to chilly Ontario re-charged and motivated by the professional speakers and networking opportunities with so many successful stagers from Canada, the US and farther abroad.

home stager in kitchener waterloo: Keeping your Curb Appeal Appealing with Great Late Summer Gardens - 09/04/09 08:27 AM
This is just a quick add-on note I wrote for my newsletter recently.
Keeping curb appeal current with the season is important, and early September is a good time to add some Fall flowers to your landscaping.
