I suppose everyone has heard Alicia Keys new hit and award-winning single, Girl on Fire.  After a record 2012 for us and many of our class grads and a fabulous Real Estate Staging Association convention in San Francisco this February, that song seems to fit my enthusiasm level.

Where are you on the Girl on Fire scale? (or Guys on Fire for our many excellent gentlemen stagers)

What can we do to raise your level of success??  After conversations with several staging colleagues, it seems that continuing education tips the scale for all of us when it comes to staying motivated and getting more business.

Yes, the industry is constantly evolving. Yes, homes are selling faster. New strategies must be implemented. We are offering several amazing opportunities to stay ahead of the curve. See BACKSTAGE for tele-seminar, webinar and Advanced Class details.

One of the classes at the RESA convention that really confirmed my philosophy but sparked my imagination with new ideas was the Staging Report. Some call it the “Walk and Talk” Report.

Karen Otto, from the Dallas area, said that 70% of her business was from the Staging Report, $150 service.  Karen is a regional VP with RESA national and a convention speaker. Shouldn’t we all be listening to what she has to say?!

I took pages and pages of notes and condensed it down to a short but thorough report. I’ve also added my thoughts. If you are interested, send an e-mail request and I will share the document.

Better yet, attend the complimentary tele-seminar scheduled for next week. 3-12-13, at 8:00PM EDT. See BACKSTAGE below for details...



~The TELE-SEMINAR will be held Tuesday, discussing the Staging Report and how you can make $50,000 a year with this service alone. No reservations needed but if you wish to get an invitation to our next webinar, e-mail your request. becky@beckyharmon.com

Tuesday night, 3-12-13, 8:00 to 9:00PM EDT

Call-in number, 1-213-3000, access code, 884624. Your normal long distance charges will apply.

Those who attend this event will be invited to the webinar with pictures on Vacant Staging.

Yes, our popular "There's No Place Like Home" Advanced Staging Class, held here in Jacksonville, will be Friday and Saturday, October 4th & 5th. The location is the newly renovated Queens Harbour Yacht and Country Club in Jaclsonville, Fl.

We have great new speakers joining us and many new demos and workshops. $150 for the two days includes gourmet buffet lunches and lots of extras.

Our space is extremely limited and many of last years attendees are returning, so get your reservations in ASAP. Below you have a Pay Pal deposit option. $50 deposit saves your seat.

Two new guest speakers:

Juliet Johnson, a rock star in Social Media, will guide us to better visibility on the web. My traffic has doubled since November with Juliet’s help. That is a small miracle since my traffic growth has been pretty static and gradual for 6+ years. www.vizzitopia.com

David Josephson, who is a business coach specializing in Real Estate, will guide us to better productivity and increased revenue. www.thegrowthcoachofjax.com

Returning this year is Cyndi Rice who wowed our attendees in 2012. She made us laugh and cry and believe in ourselves. Have you practiced your elevator speech? Remember when she asked us all… not “What do you do?” but “Why do you do what you do?”

We will also have speakers who can help us improve our photography skills and SEO Search Engine Optimization. TBA

I will be presenting a class with lots of new information on “Contracts” and also “Creating and Sustaining a Wow-Factor Life.” I will also be sharing the "nitty-gritty" nuggets from the San Francisco Convention.
