Haverhill Home Staging Sold to Real Estate Investor Group

TORONTO, July 29 /CNW/ - Home Staging Corporation of Toronto, Canada is pleased to announce it has acquired the Haverhill Staging Group of Companies, which includes The Haverhill Institute of Staging & Design, and Haverhill Home Staging Services.

Home Staging Corporation is a private investor group established for the purpose of developing a home staging company that will be a dominant player in the fast-growing field, with adequate size and clout to compete with national brands.

Jason Meretsky, CEO of Home Staging Corporation, chose Haverhill as its first acquisition target due to its size, profile and growth. "The Haverhill Group of Companies possessed the characteristics we were looking for. There's strong brand awareness, a North American presence and a significant addressable market".

"All the information we researched supported the fact home staging really works and is a nascent market with tremendous growth prospects", said Meretsky, who is a corporate lawyer by profession and a board member of Homeserve Technologies Inc, a public company that provides services and technology products for business-to-business clients whose customers are engaged in the move or home-ownership lifecycle.

Home Staging Corporation's new management team will replace the company founders and includes incoming President, Michael Sweetnam, a ten-year veteran in the real estate service industry with management and executive positions at Teranet, Canada's largest land registry operator. "With the financial capital and added business acumen, Haverhill is well-poised to scale its operations and be the dominant provider of home staging services" said Mr. Sweetnam.

Founded in 2007, Haverhill Staging is North America's largest and fastest growing home staging company providing end-to-end home staging training and professional services.

For further information: Michael Sweetnam, President: 1-888-978-2433 Ext. 2250

I have to wonder what that means for all the past disgruntled students still looking to get a passing grade.

Should be interesting.

Hi Kimberly: Like Kathy, I'm curious if you will be staying on with Haverhill. Like may others I have read and heard many negative things about Haverhill on the internet and directly from past students. Hopefully with new management, there will be many improvements.

Interesting.  I too am interested in seeing what happens.  I will be meeting with a student next week after my vacation.  She too did not have a very good experience.

 

I will be helping her start up her business.
