Why am I sitting at home while my stager friends are in Las Vegas???

Home Stager with Shows Great Home Staging and Web Solutions

As I read the posts and updates on facebook and AR from all of my stager friends from all over the country I am so sorry that I did not make plans early in the year to attend.

The annual RESA convention is a great networking and educational event for members of the Real Estate Staging Association.  Next year I will be one of the first to make my reservations and plans to attend.

If you are like me and did not make plans to attend this year...let's commit to being there next year and joining in all the fun.

I am just hoping that when it comes to this year's RESA convention, "what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas" and that you will share with us some of what you learned and a few photos.

We could all use a little help when staging a vacant home.  Maybe you could share some tips with us if they share with you.

I hope to be there with you, NEXT year Wanda.  I'm also counting on a lot of sharing from members that did get to go.

Me three, Wanda & Ginger! I would be there in a HEARTBEAT except just 2 days before the dates were announced, my sisters & I booked a week long "girls only" trip (out of the country).  I honestly was TORN when Shell announced he dates: but alas, NEXT YEAR!

We just all left the Networking, Business Trade Show.  Early sessions  begin tomorrow.  Saw some familiar faces from AR, meet some new people.  One thing we found is we all have the questions, and share similar stories and experiences.

Greetings from Las Vegas Wanda! We wish you were here too (& everyone else above). Its been a lot of fun, especially meeting home stagers from all over the US, Canada, Austrailia and Europe. Its been amazing shaking hands (and hugging) stagers I've gotten to know on AR, Facebook & Twitter. The speakers have been great, with lots of information zinging around the room. I hope I'll get you meet you next year at the RESA Conference!

I just returned from the RESA Conference and can't tell you how utterly HAPPY (maybe even joyous!) I am to have made this trip.  I'll be blogging about what I learned, but I can't emphasize enough to all of those who weren't able to attend this one -- DEFINITELY put it on your calendars for next year regardless of where it is held, because it was worth every great moment!
