I am a very fortunate professional stager. I have wonderful Realtor clients, many who I have had since the beginning of my business almost 6 years ago.
I love working with new Realtors too. That look in their eye when they meet us and see the magic we do and say things "where have you been my entire career?" It makes you feel warm all over.
My absolute favorite thing to do though is to be on a Realtor Team. A valuable member of the team who is brought into every job. Those Realtors would not think of listing a house without us! We have several Realtors who feel that way and I would do almost anything to help them sell their listing.
One particular Realtor that I have the pleasure of working with in this way is Terrylynn Fisher, Diablo Realtor. We have been staging together a while now and I always enjoy the experience. Terrylynn is the only Realtor that I actual stage with as she has been staging for over 18 years and has her own inventory. Sure I bring my truck and sprinkle a few of my props or sometimes provide a piece of furniture, lamps and artwork when needed. BUT Terrylynn has been gathering her staging props for a long time and has some really great items.
Last Thursday we spent the entire day doing just that...staging a vacant listing with the assistance of her wonderful husband Bob. The homeowners followed all the instructions, new granite, paint, carpet and fixtures. We spent all day and well into the early evening doing our thing.
Two days later offer...and now it's sold. When you are part of a team you can't lose.
