Los Angeles Home Stager Interview in Chicago Tribune

By
Home Stager with Moving Mountains Design Home Staging, Pasadena, CA

I was recently interviewed by nationally syndicated real estate journalist Ellen James Martin for a column she was writing about home staging. Google Alerts let me know this morning that the article is appearing in the Chicago Tribune.

The article, Getting the Most Out of Home Staging, will appear in about 100 newspapers across the country over the next few weeks. Please feel free to show some stager love by leaving a comment at the Chicago Tribune web site (just below the article).

Just for the record, I am not the "Director of the Real Estate Staging Association" as quoted in the article. I sit on the Board of Directors, and I am the Regional VP for California, Hawaii and Nevada. The Director or President of the Real Estate Staging Association is the very capable Shell Brodnax;-))

Thank you very much Brian.

Michelle: It is part of my overall marketing plan to leverage exposure through the press whenever possible. After a lot of effort, it is finally paying off. What gets me really jazzed though is getting positive press for the whole staging industry. The more this stuff is out there, the more people will read it and the better educated they will become about the benefits of home staging.
