As a pilot, Chuck moved around a lot. It was for this reason that he left his home in Zionsville and moved to Wisconsin. The market was abysmal at that time, and he put a renter in the Zionsville house until the market had recovered. In 2015, he was referred by his renter to call Jennifer if he wanted to sell the house after they moved out! Jennifer was delighted to help, of course. The house was in one of the most popular neighborhoods in town, and the market was looking strong for the new year. It was, however, a bit of a boring house. It had fresh carpet and clean paint, but it needed “something.” So Jennifer took her stash of staging loot to the house on a Sunday afternoon and installed it for a little “softer touch.” The very week after the shower curtains went up and the potted plants went out, that house was sold. The inspections were tough, though. It had been a rental for many years with an absentee landlord who hadn’t been all that attentive. They got through it after some extensive repair work by Jennifer’s most trusted contractors, and Chuck still made a pretty penny on his left-behind home. And Jennifer stashed away the staging items for the next house “in need of a woman’s touch,” because she knows a bit of color and a softer presentation go along way in helping a buyer bond with a house enough to write an offer.
