barb schwarz: Staging is NOT Decorating. Staging is SELLING Houses! - 11/06/12 12:50 PM
A person asked me if I do holiday staging?  
 
 

I know this is a simple question,  but I think it deserves a little explanation that Staging is NOT Decorating.  Decorating is personal.  Some people already  have Christmas lights up.  I saw my neighbors house down the street lit up with Christmas lights just now.  I don't know if  they are just testing the lights or the Christmas Decorating frenzy has begun in earnest.

barb schwarz: Not too Late for Home Staging Training with Barb Schwarz - 02/12/10 06:28 PM
I'm excited to be going to home staging training with Barb Schwarz. 
This will be my 3rd time.  I went to my first training in 2007, returned in 2008, and when I found out that Barb Schwarz was coming to Texas, I knew I had to go. The training is at the Doubletree by the Galleria in Dallas and I am staying at a nearby La Quinta. 
Looking over my staging scrapbooks, I realize now some of my early rooms were sparse on staging sizzle.
I have learned a truckload of information from www.stagedhomes.com and staging training.

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.
