The Mistake Middle-Tier Agents Make That Top Producers Don't.

Uncategorized Jun 03, 2019

Are you trying to do it all? Most agents know the statistics on how important home staging is, but some are trying to do it on their own.

We actually teach a CE class for realtors about home staging-- but being a Staging Design Agent does NOT mean that you should be a home stager AND a real estate agent. The fastest way to burn out and start dropping all those spinning plates is to try to do something that you can hire someone else to do better-- and in less time. 

To be a top producer, you need to be all in. You need to be an expert in your neighborhood. You need to be focused on building relationships and knowing the stats on homes. But, you DON'T also need to be a professional home stager. Trust us, it is a full-time job on its own!!  Call us at 210-722-1633 or request a bid here so that you can focus on what you do best: getting homes SOLD!

Uncategorized Apr 03, 2019

You know that BY Design Staging sells your listings faster and for more money. But, your clients don't sell houses every day and might not be familiar with home staging. Here is your script to get them on board.

Zig Ziglar taught that every sale has 5 basic obstacles: 

  • No Need
  • No Money
  • No Hurry
  • No Desire
  • No Trust

Let's take a look at each of those and explore some appropriate responses. This is your script for handling each situation.

No Need

The seller may say something along the lines of "I didn't stage my last house and it sold fine," or "My home was professionally decorated," or "It looks clean and open since it is vacant."

The market has changed and, thanks to HGTV, Pinterest, Houzz, etc, buyers now expect more. They want to be 'wow'ed.
