A couple of months ago, I was interviewed by one of the Editors of REALTOR® Magazine for an upcoming article she was writing on winter curb appeal.  She asked me to provide her with some helpful tips for their readers.
The article was published in their November/December hardcopy edition.  If … (12 comments)

realtor magazine: REALTOR® Magazine - My Latest Article: What To Look For When Choosing a Home Stager - 09/23/10 02:52 PM

 
Last year I wrote an article for my Active Rain blog that provided information on things to look for when choosing a Home Stager to work with.  It actually got featured on AR at the time.  It's such an important topic, that I felt it was time for the subject to be addressed again.  That's why recently, I submitted the article to REALTOR® Magazine for their blog Styled, Staged & Sold.  
You can read the article here: What To Look For When Choosing a Home Stager.  I hope you find it helpful if you're thinking about adding the services of a Home Stager to your marketing program.  If you're … (14 comments)

realtor magazine: REALTOR Magazine's Online Blog 'Styled, Staged & Sold' - I Just Became a Guest Blogger! - 07/28/09 07:39 PM

Aside from home staging, another one of my passions is writing.  I don't write for a living, but I sure get a lot of enjoyment from it.  Since things have slowed down a little over the last couple of weeks, I decided to put a little more effort into my writing during "low tide".  I don't know about other Home Stagers, but for me, my business seems to come in waves.  Everything comes all at once and I'm crazy busy, and then it slows down for a week or two.  I guess that isn't a bad thing though, it gives you a chance to … (12 comments)
