Home Staging: My Passion Continues Now and Through the Many Years…..
I feel so blessed. Blessed to have had the opportunity to share my passion with over a million Realtors® over the years. For many years, I have traveled the nation and North America , typically one city a day, 40 weeks a year, sharing my message of Home Staging. These years make up the foundation of what’s now a vibrant Home Staging Industry. Next year 2010, will be my 25th year as a professional speaker and trainer. Through all these years I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the greatest people in the world. One of them is Jennie Norris, ASPM, IAHSP. You’ve seen her posts here at the Stagedhomes blog, and I’m certain you can tell from her writing how much she loves this business and her work as an ASPM Home Stager. Earlier today I received this message from Jennie that I’d like to share with you. Jennie, your note means so much to me, and I thank you for being in my life. “Hi Barb, I am watching you right now on the Staging DVD and I wanted to write and let you know that I appreciate you so much! One of the students in our ASP San Jose , CA class has a husband who took a class from you when he was 19!! He attended with his mother so this was back at the very beginning when you taught. To this day, she said, he still talks about how it was the very BEST seminar he has ever attended and he still stands by that all these years later! Her name is Tracy Parker and I told her to write to you and share because I love the story! You have touched so many lives and there are so many proofs that you, and only you, have the longevity of training in Home Staging that you invented and have shared with us all!” Jennie Thank you Jennie so very much for sharing this story with me. I always like to say: “Live in Joy, ASP Stage with Joy, and Enjoy the Magic and Wonder of it all!” Barb Barb Schwarz, ASP, ASPM , AB , IAHSP The Creator of Home Staging® President & Founder, StagedHomes.com President & Founder, IAHSP.com
