Home staging is one of the hottest businesses to start to get rich quick - or so the media says.  If you combine all the publicity the home staging industry is getting with all the women out of work, plus add in all the people who think it's fun to decorate - you get a stew with a lot of rotten p...

Can you say, "Glam!?"  Wow, what eye candy at High Point yesterday!  Glad to see mirrored furniture is still showing.  I saw a lot of that.  It's tough to transport, but I do have some pieces I use in staging.  Sorry to say that microfiber was not shown.  I saw one dining room set with chairs in ...

I remember in 2008 a lot of activerain stagers were discussing taking payment at closing.  I got a couple of inquiries in '08, never did it, but then my 2009 was very profitable and I had no requests to take payment at closing. It seems like customers are coming from everywhere now in 2010 reques...

I can go two years without staging an occupied property - then wham!  All of a sudden that's all the calls I get for weeks straight.  I am loving how every job is so different and challenging in this business!  A real exercise for the right side of my brain.  These folks had over a decade of coll...

Once in a while a property comes along that proves you wrong!  What I planned for this room and how I staged it are two different things.  No wonder it sat vacant for many months with no sale and with feedback complaining that the buyers didn't know how they could place furniture.  I ended up tak...

This savvy Realtor had this home staged prior to listing. She had her challenges since the property was a rental and the tenant had several pets. After a thorough cleaning, painting and new flooring, along with other improvements, I was called in to stage. Of course as usual, we are hoping for a ...
