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!   las vegas sign

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.

Hi Beverly ~  Wish I'd known you were there at the RESA convention -- I would love to have met you in person after seeing your posts on AR for years :-)  It was truly a great opportunity to share, network, and hear amazing presentations.  So glad to hear that you enjoyed it and plan to return next year!

Hi Maureen,

I wanted to meet you too, but I was like a kid in the candy store, wanted to go to all the workshops, and now wish I had gone to yours!  Next year!  I admire all your staging before and afters!
