Another Secret to Share with Your Clients...

By
Real Estate Agent with Dove Realty Inc.

Recently I put together a list of all my favorite retailers for home decor and remodeling. I emailed it to my clients and asked them to email me back with their suggestions. This is a really easy way to stay in touch with your clients and have them forward your expertise on to their friends and family.

Stagers, this could also be a nice peice to send to your favorite Realtors to pass on.

That's a great way to stay in touch and stand out above the crowd!  Also great to include any info on discounts or account you have at other places, such as Sherwin Wiliams, for your clients to reference.

Susan, since you ARE our Charter Partner in your area, are these the people you'd want on the site with you as the experts in their field.  We hope to get you lots of questions to answer about staging, carpet and painting, etc...so shall we set it up so that they are seen by the people who come to the site in your area to look for experts?  GREAT idea by the way. 

Actually have a gap the other side of the state for charter partner, any recommendations?  That would be too far for you to go for bids, listings, etc., right?  t

Susan this is just great. I am working on a remodel with a fantastic contractor and he gave me a whole new list just today of resources that I will be adding to my mix to check out and try out. This is one of the main reasons homeowners everywhere should be using Professional Stagers as A Resource for EVERYTHING that has to do with their home. We have such great list and are always looking for more and unlike contractors we have furnishings, accessories and design items as well as painters, electricians and contractors. Love this. Make sure you refer them to our Ask the Expert Section of StagersLIST.com when its up and running so they can be listed on our directory and gain more exposure. They will love you even more than they already do. Kym

Susan, this is a great idea. We provide it if we are asked but we had not thought of just putting it all together and sending it out.
