I know there are those realtors out there that have never heard of staging... even here on AR. So I blog on.. for YOU are the gateway for recommendation of our staging services.
If you are interested in considering using a stager... USE YOUR EYES and look at stagers here on AR as a cross section of what the Professional Staging Industry has to offer.
If you USE YOUR EYES you will see the level of quality and skill is "all over the place". JUST because someone attaches the word professional to their name... does NOT make them so.
USE YOUR EYES... there are some AMAZING stagers associated to AR from all over the country. Some are trained by an organization, some are self trained - as most people who STARTED training organizations were when they started out.
USE YOUR EYES and see the good AR stagers and use them as a litmus test to which you compare the stager you are considering in your market. Go to thier websites... look at their galleries/portfolios. You WILL SEE fantastic work... and just plan garbage. LOOK at the website...is IT attractive? Folks, stagers are in the MERCHANDISING BUSINESS, they SHOULD be able to merchandise themselves.
So as of today there are 83 stagers signed up on Active Rain. Which is "small potatoes"compared to the number of realtors here on AR.
REALTORS need to know you are the gateway... USE YOUR EYES!
