This year's Real Estate Staging Convention was held in Las Vegas and it was my first time and hope to go again next year!
The speakers were incredible, the best of the best in staging information. I am so glad I went.
If you are a fan of HGTV, you would have been in speaker heaven, because the host of "The Stagers" Matthew Finlason is such a personality, dynamite speaker and home stager!
Barbara Corcoran of the "Shark Tank" gave her "rags to riches" story, which is simply compelling.
Motivational speaker Terry Watson had a "light your fire" delivery and used nonstop humor throughout his presentation.
My favorite speaker for staging content is a Nashville stager, Kristie Barnett, who talked about furniture arrangement. I know, could sound dull, but I have said it before and will say it again that the arrangement of the staging furniture in the room creates the foundation of home staging by defining the space and providing purpose with a sense of balance and proportion. Kristi has analyzed furniture arranging into step by step principles and then effectively illustrated these principles.
