Barb Schwarz, Creator of Home Staging® and CEO of Stagedhomes.com, to Speak at the 2010 NAR Convention in New Orleans
Stagedhomes.com is proud to announce that Barb Schwarz, CEO and Creator of Staging®, once again will be a featured speaker at the annual convention of the National Association of REALTORS®. NAR’s annual convention, NARdiGras 2010, is scheduled for November 5 through 8, 2010, and Schwarz’ presentation will take place on Sunday Nov 7, 2010, from 3:30 p.m.to 5 p.m. During her presentation From Staging to Pricing to Getting it Sold!, Schwarz will share hot Staging ideas and tips, listing presentation key points and how to better price a Staged Listing to sell too. She will discuss how REALTORS® can handle sellers’ objections and how to positively educate sellers on what agent and Stagers really do as they work for the seller. “Too many agents assume the sellers know, but the truth is that the public does not know what we do,” said Schwarz. “It has to be verbal and very visual.” This year, Schwarz celebrates 25 years as Certified Professional Speaker. Since 1972, Schwarz has educated Realtors®, Home Stagers® and the public on Home Staging®. As a seasoned speaker and top real estate producer, Schwarz has logged over 18,000 hours on the speaker’s platform.

Having traveled 40 weeks each year, she’s been a featured speaker at almost all National Association of Realtors® conventions, state Realtor® conventions as well as all major real estate franchise conventions. Her gift for speaking and ability to educate, motivate and entertain was recognized by the National Speakers Association in 1990 when they awarded her the coveted designation of Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), earned by less than 250 speakers worldwide. Barb Schwarz is a leader, an innovator, and a truly gifted speaker who shares the wisdom of her personal triumphs. Those who experience Schwarz are always struck by her incredible energy as well as the practical substance of her programs.
