Coming Soon from RESA… Stager Idol
Juliet, Beth & Maureen are smart cookies… you'll want what…
I showed a few photos from my newest portfolio. It was inspired after reading Maureen's post I stole Juliet and Beth's portfolio. You should to. She advises her inspiration came from Juliet Johnson and Beth Panode. If you saw my comments at all… more
What do your photos show? A new look at a staging portfolio…

Are you filling out your SIF stats?
Tonight I finally had a few minutes to do my SIF stats to fax over to Craig. (I also faxed about 10 of them right before our roundtable a few weeks ago. ) I have to say I'm really enjoying the process! It reminds me to keep stats and helps me do… more

What's right & wrong… which do you prefer & why?
Here is a subjective lesson… I staged this house & then agents at an open house re-staged it. Can you guess which one I did & which one they did… What do you like and dislike about each & why… After you give me your answers, I'll… more
You asked… I answered… Sharpen YOUR Sword…
I posted last night a querry on how to comment on posts (specifically before & after posts) where the stager really could have used some tweeking… the old addage, "you don't know what you don't know" thoughts apply. All 8 comments… more
