Home Stager - Simple Inspiration Home Staging

 Recently, I was contacted by a Relator who stated she had a client that had been transfered to another city.  She continued to comment that she felt they could greatly benefit from staging and that she felt the client did not have a chance in this market without it.  I wondered to myself...what ...
As I sit here sorting through all the Christmas aftermath of gift wrap and items to be returned, I am reflecting on this past month and the year almost behind me.  As a stager my job is to prepare my client's home for the market in hope of promoting a quick and prosperous sale.  While I am satisf...
