Here in Colorado, I have a partner in staging, who always comes through, and never demands payment. Her name is Mother Nature and her contribution to the homes I stage is priceless. Here are two examples of her handiwork:     But, Mother Nature can only do so much, because buyers will live INSIDE...

Here is the song inspired by Jason Crouch, followed by some interesting findings. Jason, Jason, Jason....you are such a paradox. As you know (because I have told you), I have made it my life's work to study you, take you apart, see what makes Jason Crouch tick. What, if anything, have I discovere...

Taking a quick break from my never-ending chore of organizing my inventory in the basement, I decided to check out the A&E program "Flip This House/New Haven".      I will confess that I was kind of hooked when I saw the four principle players (and they do look like players), but I was really loo...

I've always been a bit of a control freak, but I have found one thing I can't seem to control. OK, I'm really bad at dieting, so make that two things.

I talked three of my friends into joining me, and we chose the last week of June and the first week of July. I couldn't think of a better place to celebrate the...

Even though I tell my agents to stage their listings before they go on the market, I just love to be called in after they have been sitting on the market for awhile! And, the reason? Buyer feedback! It's kind of like the difference between saying to your mechanic "it's making a funny noise" and "...

The other day, I grabbed one of those listing magazines...you know, the ones that are free in the grocery store and other places.  My intent was to find Realtors who might be in need of my service.  Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw!  Although, most of the photos were of the outsi...

Bob Schenkenberger brought up this great question. I thought I would take a shot at explaining it, but would welcome all stagers to assist me! The first thing I did was check an online dictionary, but that was really not helpful, because the terms "stage" and "staging" have taken on a new meaning...

After spending the day in meetings, I finally got home, kicked off my shoes and checked into the Rain. A quick glance at my home page, and I was ready to relax and read some good blogs. Wait a minute...my heart quickened...SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I clicked back to my home page. Something had changed...
