before and after photos: TAKE BEFORE PHOTOS EVERY TIME! - 03/28/13 02:49 PM
Before and After Photos tell a compelling story without saying a word.
More than once now, I have forgotten to take a before photo of rooms that once staged were drop dead gorgeous!
It is so easy to get caught up in the excitement of getting it staged quickly that the before photos never happened.  
Before photos don't have to be taken with a good camera after all they are BEFORE photos!
 
However, sometimes the stars just conspire against you.
 
I have forgotten the camera and pressed on with staging.   The camera doesn't work and … (9 comments)

before and after photos: Before and After Bedroom - 09/15/10 01:42 AM

Think hotel room look when  you stage a bedroom.   When your house is on the market you are now in the hospitality and guest industry. Most persons would be aghast if one entered their hotel suite and somebody's else's family picutres and half squeezed toothpaste, and a wet towel  hanging on a hook were still inside  the hotel suite.
Clean It, Clear It, Make it Beautiful.  Add extra guest comfort, warmth, panache.   
"STAGE IT" IS THE HOME STAGING PART OF MY REAL … (5 comments)

before and after photos: FROM BACHELOR PAD TO STAGED PIZZAZZ in ABILENE TEXAS! - 05/11/10 09:21 PM
I really did it.  This Saturday,  I got up at 7:00 a.m. loaded the car and finished loading a pull behind trailer and was at the house to be staged at 8:30 a.m.  All was on schedule except for some details, the owner had been too tired to pack his car so there was STUFF in the living room and the Master bedroom.   I assured the seller, no problem, let's stash it in the garage or the Master closet.
With that problem solved, then it was on to vacuuming and cleaning kitchen cabinets and bathrooms.  The seller pitched in recruited volunteers, too bad there was … (5 comments)

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.
