I'm Back... with a Staging Class

I must apologize for going MIA the last couple of months from the blog.

We hit the ground running January 1 with several projects and stopped only to down orange juice and Dayquil while trying to recover from all sorts of flu and the like that hit One Pretty House Interiors and the DC area this winter.

I had the privilege of teaching a Staging Basics Class  to a group of agents at the Greater Capital Area Chapter of the Women's Council of Realtors. As Hospitality Chair on the board  to this diverse group of talented business men and women, last week, I got to teach them about staging  and how it has the ability to potentially evolve their businesses from good to great.

As a professional member of RESA (the Real Estate Staging Association) and a certified instructor, I shared with them what staging really is, the latest statistics on how time and time again staged homes sell faster and for money that those homes that are not staged and some before and afters of work performed by One Pretty House Interiors.

Our own statistics certainly stand up to national numbers. In fact in 2014 One Pretty House Interiors averaged about 2 weeks on the market after staging!  But don't take my word for it, a pictures is worth a thousand words:

I am currently working with GCAAR to get the class certified for CE Credits, but in the mean time, if you are an agent and interested in having One Pretty House Interiors teach your agents about staging, we'd love to talk with you!



  1. Lovely job Malena! I'm sure that the realtors learned the value of having you stage their next listing !!!
