 VACANT LIVING ROOM OF HOME STAGED AND SOLD IN 2014
 
In 2006, when I staged my first house, few people in Abilene knew what home staging was. At Coldwell Banker they had a booklet talking about home enhancement which was the basic clean and declutter mantra on how to prepare a home for sale.   In 2007,  I went to Dallas for three days and took the Barb Schwarz Accredited Staging Professional training.

accredited staging professionals: Real Estate Home Staging is More than Mowing the Grass. - 04/08/10 07:56 AM

accredited staging professionals: Fireplaces! - 11/19/09 03:48 AM
With cooler weather, it's time to make hot chocolate and enjoy warmth of the fire in the fireplace.  Staging the Fireplace when the house is for sale makes the Fireplace a desirable selling feature of the home.  Nothing is more appealing than warm firelight on a blustery day.   
 
      
 
This fireplace is in the dining area and the place for romantic firelit dinners.

My Blog is about my real estate career of buying, selling, leasing, managing properties, and home staging. I can help anyone in Abilene, Texas to buy or sell or manage properties or stage properties. My passion is staging because it is the premier marketing strategy to get to "SOLD" in the shortest amount of time. Staging a home leads to more showings which leads to more offers. Staging is part of my marketing plan for selling and leasing. I stage for other Realtors and homeowners. I stage both vacant and occupied properties. I do model homes and model apts. Big or small, I stage them all.
