Congratulations Lori! And thanks for the post. I've been on the same path and it's frustrating. It's nice to hear that "it's not me".

I, too, THINK I have just snaged my first Realtor Partner. I say "think" because I have done my first consultation for him (which went very well). He payed for it. He wants to add home staging consultations to all of his listings and we are off to a great start. But I won't consider him "snagged" until I get another appointment (which he is already talking about) or after I get the results on the current home we are working on.

I have a really good feeling about this.

Mary Lou--I think you should have gotten something in writing because I'm pretty sure they have had new listings since January!  I'd get in there and shake 'em up!  Thanks for your comment.

Sharon--So far the situation is working out well for both of us.  Hoping to report many more success stories.  Thanks for your comment.

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am hoping for the same good luck (which of course came from hard work)! I recently did a vacant home for one Realtor.  At the Realtor open house, I met three additional Realtors;  I was invited to speak to their office. In addition, I have consulted several others on cost comps on appliances, flooring costs, etc. All free, I guess part of my due diligence.
