Fellow Stager in Salem helps Stager in Arizona

By
Home Stager with Interior Moods

Margaret Oscilia of Creative Concepts in Salem, Oregon has taken on a very personal staging job for me and my family. She will be staging my brother-in-laws home in Independence, Oregon on Monday.

My older sister went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly in January this year. Her husband needs/wants to sell the home to be closer to his family. His son is currently living with his grandparents about 4hrs away.

He listed the home about six months ago but has had very little to no traffic during this time and was feeling quite helpless and hopeless.

I knew I had to do somthing to help. I also knew, I could not fly up to do the staging for him, I knew he was not in the right state of mind to do the staging by phone or email. I knew he needed help locally and I knew I could find someone who would take good care of him. It is in our nature as stagers to help those who are in need.

I originally went online to Home Staging Resource, where I took my staging certification. I found a few stagers in the Portland area and contacted one of them, but they where unable to go out that far so they referred me to Margaret. I immediately recognized her name from AR, checked out her website, emailed her with some information.

Margaret said, "YES".

I then needed to talk with my brother-in-law to see if he would be on board. We talked and he was very interested. He said, " I have to do something, what I am doing is not working." He had only 3 people in six months see his home.....

I then handed him over to Margaret and she did her homework and found that the homes in his area and price range were selling! He is now listed with a New Agent, Margaret will be staging on Monday and professional photos will be taken on Tuesday.

Thanks to Margaret and the new agent, his hope is restored and he does not feel hopeless anymore. He feels like he has team on board who truly cares and wants to see him reunited with his son and soon.

Margaret and I will keep you posted. God bless.

Dee ~ I'm sorry to hear about your sister.  It's wonderful to know that your brother-in-law feels like he has some support and a team to help him get the house sold.  I think it's great that you found Margaret and how fitting that she is also here on AR.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and comments. We will continue to pray that he finds his buyer soon.

Today Margaret is going out to finish her staging. Let's pray all goes well. My brother in law was not feeling well over the weekend.

Margaret, good luck today and have fun!
