The Real Estate Staging Association Hamilton/Halton Chapter August Meeting was a great success. Even though it was still summer we had quite a few members show up.
We welcomed Sue Kowalski from "The Glass Candle" as our sponsor for the morning. Sue is from Brantford, Ontario but serves Hamilton/Halton as well. She shared how her candles would be an asset for staging homes since they do not melt in the sun. They are made from palm wax. She brought many votive candles with many different scents. They can be made scentless as well. Every member received two votive candles to take home.
Julie shared how she could help stagers assist their clients with the de-cluttering process.
Julie also shared how she could help each of us with our home offices and inventory.
A couple of tips to our RESA Chapter members was
schedule anything that takes longer than 30 minutes
try to leave a room in better shape than when you entered it
take 15 minutes every day preparing for the next day
Excellent tips Julie.
Our RESA Hamilton/Halton Chapter members really enjoyed our guests and what they had to offer.
As the RESA Hamilton/Halton Chapter President and owner of my own staging company Center Stage Design, I have been working with MacFrugals, a furniture rental company, in the Hamilton area to put together something specific for stagers. After meeting with them twice they have decided not to help us out. They will rent to us, however, the service would be the same as if you wanted to rent for your own personal use. Not ideal. Very disappointing.
I have used them twice already and the service was excellent by the way!!!!
The "Bagster" was also shared to the group as an alternative to the bin rental. Fill it up and then call
