Sometimes in the name of building a business it is helpful to offer some time to do a free consultation. I am not a proponent of working for free or reduced fees just because someone asks, but when trying to recruit a new high volume client or someone who can be significantly influential in refer...

I was invited to participate in a presentation today by a real estate agent.  There were three of us industry professionals; one agent, one mortgage person, and little ole me!  The presentation went very well and I bet all three of us will earn several clients or transactions from our time.One of...

Here in Omaha, Nebraska, Home Staging is still sort of a new concept.  Most agents and many sellers have heard something about it by now but not everyone has employed Home Staging in their own selling strategy. As a full service Home Stager I am proud to offer Occupied and Vacant Staging services...
