Zooming in on Kathy Streib

May ActiveRain Challenge

 

Tuesday the 19th was the 3rd of 4 ActiveRain Zoom meetings in May, a time to hook up with your AR friends and learn some new things, too. And the 3rd opportunity for a post in the May Challenge hosted by Jeffrey Richman 

 

And it’s a good time to practice your Zoom skills and good on-screen behavior.

 

This week there were 22 participants when I counted - it was fun to see everyone, including Lyn Sims , Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES , Kat Palmiotti , Elyse Berman, PA  and Michael Eisenberg , with a few new faces, including Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets ' cats (no Thomas, though)!

 

Kathy Streib  was our guest speaker and she did not disappoint, sharing some pretty useful information and generating interesting discussion.

 

With everyone hunkering down due to the SIP orders, with more people working at home, Kathy stressed having some space for an office, whether dedicated or not. I thought this was a great point. My Carlsbad seller specifically asked me to market the fact her listing has dedicated office space on the first floor of the town home with separate HVAC and half bath (and could be a small business office space, with some restrictions per the CC & Rs) after she saw an article about more buyers being interested in office space. A home office certainly makes for a short commute! I love mine!!

 

Kathy StreibKitchens remain popular, and perhaps have become even more so, with people spending so much more time at home and doing more cooking. They certainly seem to be baking more, given the lack of flour and yeast in the stores!! I was actually able to score some yeast today – what a shock!

 

Kathy noted that “every room matters”…so don’t forget staging that utility room, and making sure the garage really CAN hold 2 – 3 cars depending on the true size. It’s not uncommon for people to move all the extra stuff into their garage rather than using rental storage space. Kathy advised checking into some storage facilities in advance to share with sellers as needed.

 

We also learned about a number of great apps, including Magic Plan (for creating floor plans), Paint Harmony, Color Snap and HomeStyler.

 

If anyone had any doubts, prior to this call, about the wealth of staging information and ideas that Kathy has, they were certainly quickly abolished after listening to all she had to share. This post is just a portion of all the good stuff! You can learn more, of course, by following her if you aren't already!

 

Will we see you next week on Tuesday May 26th at 2:00 PM EST?

 

Look for the Zoom meeting link to be posted by our host Debe Maxwell in the Q and A section either the day before or the morning of the call.

I am certain that having an office within the home in addition to enough bedrooms for everyone will be a huge selling point now and in the future!

YEP! Oh, I was there, but my cats represent me for the long presentation-style meetings. I popped on to wave goodbye too, when I had to go. My cats are cuter to look at than me and since we were in listen mode, I was laying on the couch listening rather than starring at the screen. Zoom has contributed to me dealing with vertigo during Wuhan-19. Yep, I officially over did it on Zoom, so I don't sit and stare anymore unless it's conversational.

I get that Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets 

I think it CAN get overdone if you are careful about managing it.

I would have loved sitting in on this session, Jeff. It was on my calendar but work life interfered.  New listings come before zoom calls! I hate I missed Kathy Streib as she is one of my AR favorites. Hope all is well with you.
