June Staging Successes in Charleston!
 

We've been staging the Charleston market for going on three years now.  We continue to grow because of great agents like YOU! Check out some of our successes this month!

This Simonini home was under contract within 24 days with nearly every piece of furniture, art & accessory also purchased by the buyers - solidifying the fact that the staging was an integral part of this sale!

This home just needed some minor changes.  Less than 30 days after recommendations were made and implimented, the home was under contract after receiving multiple offers. 

Are you sitting with a stagnant listing?  Do you want to make more money by selling your listings faster with higher final sales prices & get more referrals in the process?  Call or email us today!  

We also wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the agents who joined us at 94 N. Shelmore for the agent open house/progressive luncheon this past Wednesday afternoon!  It was a huge success with over 50 agents in attendance.  We appreciate your support & enjoyed the opportunity to meet you!  

Sincerely,

Yep, now those are stats.  I noticed that you do your stats just like Linda does in that she provides MLS numbers and addresses so that everything she (and you) claim in your stats can be verified.  We have noticed that many stagers are real bashful about providing this info and would rather just say "My average is XXXX" with no supporting facts.  I think providing all of the info, good and bad, lends credibility to a stagers claims.  We certainly don't want to hide the most powerful thing we have going for ourselves, "Results".  And these are very nice results.

Michele - Thanks!  As Gary said in the next comment, the best thing we have going for us is stats.  We need to get them out there when we can....

Gary - You are absolutely right!  Actually one of those properties was under contract in 19 days (the one that says 32 days), but the agent didn't change the status in MLS right away..... we could have claimed the 19 days because it was true, but we would rather fall back to what shows in MLS.  Better to show more conservative that they can verify than what we knew but couldn't prove!

Melissa, I forgot to ask, do you keep a document that lists all of your closed properties and the stats?  I'm thinking you probably do,,,, How do you use this document for marketing?

Gary - actually we don't.  We had planned to start one at the beginning of the year, but it never happened.  Bevin actually started compliling one yesterday because one of the agents she provided a bid for asked the question, "How many homes have you staged this year and how many have sold?".....

I made a simple Excel spreadsheet where I list all of my jobs and the essential information - Realtor or Client name, address, job performed, results, how much I charged, any amounts of rental or purchase, and where they got my name.

Juliet - It is a different constant contact template (promotions - classic).  With the new wizard you can add links anywhere you like!  Maybe I should do a tutorial?
