Fraser Valley Real Estate Trade Show

FRASER VALLEY REAL ESTATE TRADE SHOW

EXIT STAGE RIGHT Home Staging – North Vancouver, B.C. was pleased to attend the Fraser Valley Real Estate Trade Show in Langley. We enjoyed collaborating with our colleagues: Mila Herenda, MIZO DESIGN SOLUTIONS, Yvonne Swain, HINT OF ELEGANCE, and Nancy Glover, an organizer, MIND YOUR MATTER. We had a great time at this event, and enjoyed meeting real estate professionals. It was interesting to learn that some realtors already had strong affiliations with staging companies, while others were just starting out and were just learning about staging. Some didn’t believe in staging, while others embraced our industry.

We were fortunate to have the support of READY, SET, SHOW of North Vancouver, who were very kind in supplying furniture rental at a generous discount. Yes, the rug you see is from 18 Karrat and part of READY, SET, SHOW’s inventory.

 

All in all, a very successful show!

 

Exit Stage Right is a home staging and redesign business, located in North Vancouver, B.C.

Set the Stage for a lasting First Impression.

Hi Karen - it was great to meet you in Vegas, too!  The trade show was a lot of fun.  Can't wait for the next one.

Kathy - It was just fantastic to connect in person with all those realtors.  Felt like a kid in a candy store.

Nancy - Thanks so much - the booth was only 10 X 8, so we couldn't go too overboard.  We kept it simple but elegant.

Kym - Dana told me you'd be in Vegas, but I never found you!  Yes, my feet are killing me from all the standing, but it was fun.

Fred, I agree, it was a great opportunity to meet realtors in a venue where they had the time and were open to hearing about home staging.  My next trade show will be at the BC Real Estate Convention in April at the Convention Centre.  Will you be there?  Would be great to meet you in person.

Hi Sally!  I am so glad you went for this opportunity.  We did the same show a couple of years ago and it was so worth the effort.  The booth looked great!  Good luck on the next one, a great way to get exposure.

Thanks so much, Lisa.  I know that you had a long conversation with Mila about the trade show and offered lots of helpful and encouraging advice.  We were all so overwhelmed and encouraged by your support.  It means so much.  Thank you!

Charlene - thanks for the compliment.  Yes, I'm hoping the work will roll in - of course, the key is for us to follow up on our leads.  Just read your blog on the Vegas trip - love all the photos of you with my favourite guys, and it was great to meet you, too!
