Okay, so I'm still relatively new here. I've toured around, found a few groups, made a few friends, and even got past the intimidation to start blogging a few posts. I kinda hang out with the home stagers and photographers . . . need I explain? And I've met lots of super people through those grou...

What difference can a Stager make in 3 hours?? Here are some Before and After photos from a recent Power Staging. The Realtor who referred me felt the property lacked a little pizzazz and appeal for the typical home buyer in this middle-class SW Calgary neighborhood. I had visited the home the we...

I love sleeping. Nothing makes me feel better than having that full 8 hours, and then just greeting the day full of energy and appreciation for all things good in life. Unfortunately, more often than not, this is more of a "dream" than reality! Yesterday I woke up earlier than I needed to (groan)...

Effectively used art helps sell houses! It creates a mood, tells the buyer where to look, and can contribute to a more up-to-date impression of the home. Removing artwork that is highly personal in both content and taste creates broader market appeal and makes buyers feel more at home! Exactly wh...

Last time, we talked about the value of having good artwork to help sell a home. I promised that this time we'd talk about what that good artwork is. In thinking through this topic, though, I felt it was important to first insert a discussion about what that good artwork is not. (Sometimes that c...

One thing I have noticed in viewing a lot of homes is that most people struggle in the area of artwork. Often it is kind of dated, kind of inexpensive looking (dare I say . . . cheap), and kind of small. Well, all that, and kind of personal, too. As a stager and real estate photographer, I am con...

For my exterior shots of homes, my hubby rigged up a pole device with a high quality painter's pole, from which I can shoot tethered or use the camera's timer. I shoot tethered to a laptop when he's with me, but use the timer when I'm alone--too cumbersome with the laptop. It's great to have thes...

I like creating discussion among other professionals in the real estate industry on various staging, photography and off-beat topics. I value the insight of others and the synergy we all benefit from when we collaborate--iron sharpens iron! I also have a love for fitness, personal growth and my family.
