Income $60,000 $100,00
The range of income for the first year should range from $60-100,000. The key to achieving the higher income level is to develop a resource of clients who are located in upscale neighborhoods.
Staging is the process of preparing a home for sale, regardless of price or location. Stagers work with the “flow” of a home. They eliminate clutter, remove or rearrange furniture, and even assist in enhancing curb-appeal. With the aid of a professional home stager, the house will make a more notable first impression upon potential home buyers.
Your clients will consist of homeowners, apartment managers, as well as residential and commercial Realtors.
Most jobs should probably be acquired by placing an ad in the paper, and by leaving your cards at the local furniture stores, plant nurseries and especially with Realtors.
Your Power Partners will consist of residential Realtors, handymen, general contractors, landscapers and anyone working with home improvement.
The conversations with these Power Partners should indicate your willingness to include them as you become aware of clients who need their services. It is important you meet with these Power Partners in person the first time, and then keep in touch with them weekly by email or by phone.
You should acquire an accreditation from a staging educational course in order to be more credible.
