It has been such a fun endeavor over the past years owning my home staging company. I have met and the chance to interact with many stagers throughout the country and internationally. While I have received great mentorship by some of the most accomplished and admirable stagers in our industry, I wanted to pay this forward to other stagers by helping them to move their businesses ahead. I have mentored several stagers in different areas of the country and helped other stagers who called me with advice on specific issues.
I also provide feedback and advice on several social media staging communities to help other stagers with their issues.
I am strong believer that we still have a long way to raise the bar in our industry. By living up to my own high industry standards I am putting the best effort forward to accomplish this together with other successful top industry leaders by leading with example.
Over the past year I have continued my teaching of CE classes for Realtors to increase awareness about staging and how it benefits home sellers and them as agents.
As a member of the Home Builders Association I have been bringing awareness of staging and its impact to local home builders. Staging is increasing now in popularity with smart builders in my area when selling their spec houses. There is still a long way to go to be an overall accepted practice in the builders/investors community.
