2011 RESA Canadian Rookie Stager of the Year!

Home Stager with New View Home Staging ~ www.newviewhomestaging.ca

So I don't often brag in my blog, but I've been told I need to learn to toot my own horn a bit louder sometimes. 

I've just returned from 5 days in Las Vegas, where I attended the two day RESA Convention, plus the additional one-day Certified Staging Professionals Convention.  Both were incredible learning experiences, and I've returned to chilly Ontario re-charged and motivated by the professional speakers and networking opportunities with so many successful stagers from Canada, the US and farther abroad.

A highlight for me personally came when I was awarded the 2011 RESA Canadian Rookie Stager of the Year, at the gala awards night on Monday evening.  "Rookie" status means in business less than 24 months, and I'm currently at about 22. 

It was truly exciting, and I thank Shell Brodnax, and the RESA membership for this recognition.
