Home staging as an industry has come a long way! It's no longer surprising to find articles and books on home staging in national newspapers, magazines, and your local bookstore or library.
Recently, I was interviewed by a feature writer for Angie's List Magazine who wanted some tips for homeowners who were planning to list their home for sale. She said I was contacted because of the high ranking my Portland-based home staging company has on Angie's List. We discussed various ways that home staging techniques can help a home look more spacious and appealing to potential buyers.

I've been a consumer member of Angie's list since 2006, and have found their service to be invaluable when I'm searching for local contractors in many categories. Whether hiring them myself or providing referrals to my home staging clients in the Portland, Oregon area, Angie's List is a proven and valuable resource for finding great service providers.
More Information on Angie's List:
Angie's List is a consumer-driven online referral site that collects consumer reviews on local contractors and service providers in more than 500 categories for homeowners and consumers across the U.S. Angie's List members have access to local ratings via internet and phone, to Angie's List magazine, and complaint resolution service as well. Companies listed on Angie's List may not pay a fee to be listed -- they can only be nominated by local consumers, who then provide a rating "grade" in multiple categories including Price, Quality, Responsiveness, Punctuality and Professionalism.
