And the winner is...

I'd proud to be affliated with the Real Estate Staging Assocation (RESA) 2009 Professional Stager of the melissa marroYear, Melissa Marro.  This coveted national award recognizes the industry's best in their field.  

When I met Melissa, I had no idea how much staging would become such an integral role in my business.  The first time I called her for help was for a vacant property.  It was in 2006 and my client built a gorgeous house in the Old Village of Mt Pleasant listed at $599,000.  After being listed for 3 months after completed construction, it became clear that the problem was some multiple spaces that were hard for buyers to envision.  After staging the formal living and dining combo, family room, breakfast area and the sitting area in the master bedroom, I updated the MLS photos.  In less than 21 days, showing activity increase and we had an offer.  We closed at 99% of list price. It was then that I became a believer.  Time and time again, Melissa's consultations with my sellers help clients understand the importance of a home's first impression.  Her work is exemplary uniquely combining a homes' style with the look needed to attract buyers.  Please join me in congratulating Melissa for this outstanding achievement!

Congratulations Melissa! With so many homes on the market a great stager is definitely a must-have.

Thank you so much for the wonderful blog Michele!!  I actually remember you calling me about that home - something about the painter messing up and painting the walls and baseboards the same color and was that a new trend (what the painter was trying to tell you)....

Who knew we would do so much work together and end up as such a great team?  I think we've both become great assets to each other's business... along the way we help our clients sell as quickly as possible for the most money possible.... a WIN-WIN-WIN situation!
