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.
