Barbara - I offer free advice and consultation, and have done some minor staging myself. However, for full on staging of every room in a home, seller would pay. However, not sure if that would be the case for luxury homes.

I do not.

I will recommend, introduce, facilitate, meet, schedule the installation, and de-installation of the stager/staging.  But I draw the line at paying.

When I'm done explaining the value of the staging, and how it will help us get a better purchase price... the sellers are willing (if not always "happy") to pay for the staging.

Most often, no. In a normal listing, tips on selling, staging, repairs are all included in my listing. I do have a seller now and again, most often out of town or being relocated who wants me to handle it all. We decide whether the seller will pay the stager direct, or pay me up front and i arrange with the stager
