I am really excited - I've teamed up with 3 other area stagers to teach some classes on staging.  Our market is, of course, realtors, but also home owners and sellers.  We're hoping this will not only be really educational but some great networking as well.  We're inviting a lot of the profession...

I was doing a staging job recently and really needed a bolster style pillow for a chair.  I didn't have one that looked just right so I was trying to be creative and hit upon a cool idea to create a "pillow".  In that this was a vacant house, I wasn't too worried about it being dismantled. I took...

Helping a client stage but they've got lots of stuff hanging around and don't want to mess with a rummage sale?  Have a bunch of your own stuff hanging around?  There's things that are great to sell if someone will buy them, and then there's stuff that just isn't or you don't have the time or ene...

A lot of times when I look at staging a vacant house, it can get somewhat cost prohibitive to fully stage everything. It's the biggest problem for many home owners and realtors - who's going to pay for it.  Staging can be done on the cheap but unfortunately, often a cheap stager can make a cheap ...

I've talked on my personal blog about pre-listing home inspections before, but I think this is such an important subject that unfortunately doesn't get the attention it deserves when a house gets listed.  I feel so strongly about it that I'd rather someone had the inspection and fixed the issues ...

It's interesting that the busier I get, the more I'll get done.  Then, when I've got some down time, like this week, I end up putting off things that really should get done.  I was out of town for 5 days and didn't schedule anything the first half of this week to catch up with paperwork, put toge...

So I'm doing a staging at a vacant house last fall and the client had left two really nice urns on the front entry.  Unfortunately, she left two very dead plants in them as well.  The realtor had scheduled a realtor tour that afternoon and I'd stopped by to do some fluffing up of stuff when I not...

Tomorrow morning I'm meeting my painter at a new client's house, and then I'm off to the granite yard to look at some remnant pieces to glam up a client's kitchen.  My painter, Donnie, is a great guy and has gone out of his way for me so many times to help out on jobs, get them done on time and f...

Oh, agents . . . can't live with them, can't live without them.  I have some agents I just love working with.  Here's why: they show up at the house and work with you and the home-owner send me the comps I request, and give me clear ideas about who their target market is and the type of client th...

This may have been covered in the past but the feedback I had from some other stagers about some recent window treatments I did encouraged me to blog on this.  I had some windows in a room that needed some accents so I used tension rods and placemats.  The placemats I got at Target on clearance f...
