In last week’s blog I provided an update on my adventures in Las Vegas at the annual Real Estate Staging Association’s home staging convention, #RESACON2017.   There were 400+ home stagers in attendance at the convention, most from the USA and Canada, but there were some from as far as the U.K. and Australia!

As I mentioned in that blog, it was great to connect and re-connect with so many talented stagers.  It also reminded me of how important I believe it is for home sellers and real estate agents to work with home staging professionals who have been professionally trained and certified in a program accredited by the Real Estate Staging Association.    The professional training not only enables us to provide expert advice in preparing a home for sale, but it also teaches us to understand the markets in which we serve, and provides us with tools to assist homeowners and realtors to market their homes successfully.  We learn about targeting the right buyers, trends in home staging (for which there is continuing education), and how to work efficiently and effectively for our clients.   All of this allows us to create the most value by working with home sellers to sell their homes quickly and for top dollar!

I was certified in 2014 as a Certified Staging Professional, and have continued my education with certifications in Color Consulting and Vacant Staging.   I’m extremely proud of my certifications and the education that I have received, see some of my certificates in the pictures below!   Please contact me via email or phone if you’d like more information on home staging –, (770) 366-2408.
