Home Stager with EXIT STAGE RIGHT

Wendy Betts - Remax - Ladner & Sally Weatherley - Exit Stage RightRing***Ring***Ring
"Hello, this is Sally speaking, Exit Stage Right", said in a cheery voice, of course!
"Hi Sally, this is Wendy Betts, I'm a Realtor® with Remax in South Delta..." 
Before Wendy could say anymore, I cried "Wendy, I know exactly who you are - I've seen your posts on Active Rain"! 
Chit chat and banter about the joys of Active Rain ensued.  Wendy went on to mention that she had a vacant property in Ladner, a seaside community, that needed staging.  She had seen photos of my work through my posts on Active Rain and wondered if I'd be interested in helping her out.  Ladner is about an hour away from where I live on the North Shore, but I collaborate from time to time with another very talented stager, Wendy Casey, also a member here on Active Rain, who works in the Ladner/White Rock area.  I referred Wendy to Wendy(!), but also decided to participate in the staging job, since I couldn't resist meeting Wendy Betts in person.  The photo above is me on the left, and Wendy Betts on the right - our idea of a power shot!

If you're looking for a great Realtor in South Delta/Ladner, you need to call Wendy Betts.  She's such a warm and friendly person, and really knows her area. 

Here are photos of the condo we staged.  The furnishings and majority of accessories belong to Wendy Casey at A-List Home Staging.  I was happy to be along for the ride and help out. 

Thanks, Active Rain, for being my business Match-Maker.  This was a match made in heaven!

Hey, that worked out nicely.  I keep thinking I should post a "Meet-Up" locally, and see if I find any other AR members to come :)

Kathy - It's interesting.  I'm sure I've received work indirectly through blogging on Active Rain, but this is the first "direct" offer of work through Active Rain that I've received.

Karen - You should definitely set up an Active Rain Meet Up Group, then blog about it!

Julie - My stager friend Wendy has some beautiful inventory and the nautical look worked perfectly in this seaside condo.

Mike - Thanks!  It's fun to find that Active Rain really works! 

Laura - It was all good!

Sally:  Now that is a nice match.   Two Wendys and a Sally.  I love it.   The condo looks terrific and I have my fingers crossed that it sold in less than a week.  AR - gotta love it.

How awesome!

And the staging is beautiful. I love all the accessories and the placement of the furniture (and accessories) is superb.

Isn't it great to meet someone from AR in person and even better to collaborate on a project!!  And the "seaside" comes thru in the staging....looks wonderful.

p.s........great picture that could be cropped and used elsewhere....wink/wink!!

Valerie - That sounds like "Two Weddings and a Funeral"!  We are hoping for a quick sale!

Kathy N - It's fun to work with another stagers inventory.  I love Wendy C's soft, serene look and it all worked out very nicely.

Sharon - It was Wendy B's idea to pose in a power shot - I'm not used to those, but it was fun!

Kathy B - It was a wonderful collaboration, and so much fun meeting Wendy B.  The only reason she even thought to phone me was because of my presence on Active Rain.  Plain and simple.  Ha ha ha - ok, I'm working on a new photo, I promise!

Beautiful job on the property. I love the lamps with the burlap shades. My favorite investor found me on Active Rain and we just completed our first staging for him. Nicest guy you would ever want to meet. . .
