Bullseye...when a Realtor and A Professional Stager Teams up

By
Home Stager with www.Staged-to-Sell

I am a very fortunate professional stager. I have wonderful Realtor clients, many who I have had since the beginning of my business almost 6 years ago.

I love working with new Realtors too. That look in their eye when they meet us and see the magic we do and say things "where have you been my entire career?" It makes you feel warm all over.

My absolute favorite thing to do though is to be on a Realtor Team.  A valuable member of the team who is brought into every job. Those Realtors would not think of listing a house without us! We have several Realtors who feel that way and I would do almost anything to help them sell their listing.

One particular Realtor that I have the pleasure of working with in this way is Terrylynn Fisher, Diablo Realtor.  We have been staging together a while now and I always enjoy the experience.  Terrylynn is the only Realtor that I actual stage with as she has been staging for over 18 years and has her own inventory.  Sure I bring my truck and sprinkle a few of my props or sometimes provide a piece of furniture, lamps and artwork when needed. BUT Terrylynn has been gathering her staging props for a long time and has some really great items.

Last Thursday we spent the entire day doing just that...staging a vacant listing with the assistance of her wonderful husband Bob. The homeowners followed all the instructions, new granite, paint, carpet and fixtures. We spent all day and well into the early evening doing our thing.

Two days later offer...and now it's sold.  When you are part of a team you can't lose.

Kym,

I'm prejudiced but I think all Realtors should team up with stagers just as all surgeons team up with anesthesiologists.

Selling an unstaged home is a bit like doing surgery without anesthisizing the patient. It can be done but, it makes the process go much slower and there's a lot more screaming!

I just had the greatest time a couple of weeks ago Staging with a couple of realtors, one of whom has taken some staging classes. We had a ball, they have a winning formula for how they market and price homes and the end result was that after only 3 days on the market, the homeowners got a full price offer that is already pending. Even in this market, miracles happen!

Susan - I love it.  Especially the screaming part!  When we are a team everything goes more smoothly and we really make the REALTOR look good :)

Hi Nancy - looking forward to seeing you on the 17th

Janis - so happy that things are picking up in Oregon. Sounds like you had a ball...you need to write a blog about that experience. Kym

What a combination...a realtor/stager, and a stager working together - a very powerful team to get a house sold! Keep up the awesome work, and spread the word!
