Tonight I had the honor and pleasure of sharing the benefits of home staging with the Business and Professional Women's (BPW) Club of Richardson, TX.  It was a wonderful evening spent in the company of business women in my local community who graciously invited me to share with them what I do as a home staging professional. I had been contacted over a month ago by a BPW member, Saundra Honea, who had read the home staging article from the September 2008 Dallas Morning News, How to Stage your Home to Sell Fast, in which I was interviewed, and thought it would be an interesting topic for their monthly meeting.  Of course I said, "Yes!" Whenever I get the opportunity to share with a others about home staging I jump at the chance.  It's especially wonderful when the group invites you and WA...

Ever received an Offer or Counteroffer that Ticked you off? Well..... CUT THAT OUT!    A Skilled Negotiator never takes it personal. One of the Greatest Services provided to a Client is the Art of Negotiations.  Being Combative is Rarely Effective. It also runs the risk of having the Seller or Buyer becoming less likely to budge on price and/or terms. Some Agents believe in order to be a Good Negotiator, they need to be Standoffish, Argumentative or Confrontational. Not True.  If you Wouldn't respond Favorably to it, why Would Anyone Else?  The main Focus is to protect the Client's Interests.  It's not in their Best Interests when your Personal feelings Dictate your Actions.  Stalling tactics, avoidance, and being a Dope sends the message that your Client doesn't wish to do business.   ...
