Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: August 2006

Dallas Real Estate- ASP- Accredited Staging Professional

I got my ASP today!  I am now a certified ASP REALTOR®.  The ASP is an Accredited Staging Professional.

Staging is NOT decorating!  Staging is de-personalizing.  Staging is getting a house ready to sell faster and for higher dollar.  A staged home makes all the difference in the world.

For our final exam, we hit a house in Plano and we tore it apart and then put it back together.  It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun!  We had strict rules about not putting any furniture in the garage, so we were basically forced to use everything in the house, which is what you don't want to do, but it all turned out ok.

The seller's listing agent came over at the end and he didn't even recognize anything in the house as it was all moved around and the colors we focused.

Anyway, if you're in the Dallas area and need a home staged, give me a call/email!
