Strength: I believe my strengths are my ability to get along well with people, which is an important asset in this industry. I also have an ability to quickly change a space to meet the desired result, whether it be a vacant home or a room in an occupied space that needs to look and show well.

Successes: We were called to stage a higher-end property in a desirable location of the city. The space was cold and unappealing as it had been vacant for awhile. We staged the space and made it look warm and inviting. We also did some minor "curb appeal" to the front entrance, which made a huge difference in what people saw from the street as well as when they entered the property.

We were rewarded with some very positive feedback from both the Realtor and home owner. I think this is a great example of, you can not rely on "location, location, location" to sell a space - you need to have it look the part of being welcoming.

Advice for stagers: Listen to what your client wants, but also remind them they will no longer be living in the space. Some home owners are hesitant to allow you to do what needs to be done as it may not be to their taste, etc. When you are staging a property for sale it's always important to remember "you are selling space, not stuff."
