There’s More to Sales Than Just Staging

Yes, staging your home and putting time and effort into making your home look and feel awesome! But all your hard work could go to waste if the selling element isn’t up to scratch.


Your real estate agent is the one who is going to sell your house – all your hard work goes into their hands. This is why it is important for you to have the right agent! When you are picking your real estate agent, it’s up to you to make sure your agent is:

  • A people person: your agent has to be friendly and approachable. The vendor and buyer must be led through the transaction in a smooth and stress-free way!
  • Honest: you need an agent who is willing to keep you up to date with your sale. Bad news needs to be told and fixed, this is super important!
  • People reader: your agent needs to tell you what they are thinking – if no one is looking into buying your house or if loads of people are interested in the house.  It’s all about communication!
