Gettin' Busy Bloggin' with a Home Staging AR success story

By
Home Stager with 1st Stage Property Transformations

Today I was checking in on AR and my AR associates and to my surprise I read a blog from a Keller Williams realtor Michael Garcia, GRI that I worked with in June that was titled Stage that Home and he mentioned me. (Blushing) Michael posted.....

So, I approached the seller about this idea. I have had a few offers on the property, but none worth talking about. I also have a buyer interested in the property too. But I couldnt get them to see any vision for the home. The seller asked me to get a few bids and accepted one with 1st Stage Property Transformations. Oh yea, the cool thing is, I found Janice here on activerain! Can you believe it? She did a fantastic job and had such great vision on how the home might look and put into action. I e-mailed the picts to my buyer and to other agents to share with their clients and guess what? My buyer fell more in love with the home and told her husband, I have to have it! We opened escrow this week!

 

I am not a big blogger but this got my heart racing and I thought it was about time I got BUSY BLOGGIN'!!

Here are some Afters of this lovely property that was vacant that Mike sold and I staged. 

    

    

This beautiful property is located on the west side of Murrieta, California and has it's own pond large.  Thanks to Mike Garcia/Keller Williams for finding me on ActiveRain.  This property went into Escrow the same month it was staged!   

Contact Janice at 1st Stage Property Transformations of Murrieta Temecula for a home staging estimate.

Hi Janice, We are sill looking to become an "exclusive"  stager for a local real estate agent. We currently have 5 or 6 that we work with but none that have us bid on all of their listings. I woud love to havemy realtors mention the work we do for them. Congratualtions! This sounds like a win/win relationship. Your work looks awesome!

Michelle - Thank you!  Yes, it is an awesome home.

Cheri - It can take time to build any relationship.  With Mike it was easy we were both on the "same page" when it came to our vision of staging this property.  Thanks for the compliments!

Sista Val - I am doing well thanks.  I am trying to get back into the AR blogging.  And Mike Garcia helped make that happen.  I was so excited to see he wrote about the house and me.  Thanks for the compliments.  I will try not to be a stranger anymore.  I joined your wonderful new group but I can't post to it because AR says I can only post to 5 groups.  Is there a way around that?  New blog perhaps.

Kathy - Awwwww thanks for noticing.  I am humbled.

Yvonne - Brilliant??  That gave me goosebumps!  Thank you for your kind words.  Having "a REA to toot your horn"  is fabulous!

Kathleen- Thank you.  When I joined AR it was for knowledge and friendship among colleagues. I never thought I would get jobs from it.  Finding AR was a blessing.

Betty - Yes, AR is fantastic.  I love that deck/gazebo area...its quiet and overlooks the beautiful pond.  Trust me, I had thoughts of buying this property after I staged it.  :)
