Last year I was talking with a tv producer about doing a new home staging show. Don't get me wrong I love the shows that are out there but quite a few- and I will not name them here- do not feature "real home stagers". Instead they have lovely talented model/hosts that "play a stager on tv". Notice how many of them do not show the things that real stagers do like:
- lug 8x10 area rugs up three flights of stairs because the moving men did not arrive or
- use their nails to scrape price tags off the artwork until they are nothing but mere nubs or
- how about cleaning up the mouse droppings I found under my client's sofa last week that claims his cleaning lady has been coming for months while the home is on the market?
I pitched them a show idea to have a hard working home staging professional go into a "real client's" home and do a "real home staging consultation" right there on camera.
Their reaction? Visit the stager diaries to find out more
