How is it we are already halfway through the year? June 21st  is the official first day of summer and signals the beginning of longer days, warmer nights and the urge to entertain over a hot grill with a cold beer in hand. Is your backyard BBQ ready? We have several great outdoor furniture lines with in-stock options.

Name and title: Terry Sprague – Broker/CEO, Luxe Christie’s International Real Estate

How long have you been a realtor? 13 years.

What’s your favorite part of being a realtor? Creating an amazing and professional experience for my clients. I like nothing better than delighting them.

Why do you recommend staging to clients?  First, everything is about merchandising. If you look at the high-end leaders in merchandising (Nordstrom, Nike, Tiffany’s, etc) their products sell at a premium as compared to more commodity-based products because of the experience. My job is to maximize the buyers’ experience when selling a home. With great staging you are setting the stage for what life could be like in that house. Secondly, real estate is a numbers game. Proper staging ultimately expands the number of prospects. Thirdly, clients can get more money and a faster sale with staging. When you take that all into account, staging is common sense.

Tell us about a time when staging made a big difference? I can think of multiple times staging has made a large difference! While other brokers may recommend clients just get photos quickly and get a property on the market as fast as possible, the reality is often that a staged home–especially in a competitive market–sells faster and at higher prices. I also really enjoy when my clients experience their home staged and see the transformation and wonder why they haven’t done it sooner.

The past few years, the design team at Chancellor has been seeing wallpaper (called wallcoverings in industry lingo) nearly everywhere. From soft florals to vibrant geometrics, those clients brave enough to try it often reap the rewards of a dramatic, textural and interesting look.  Advances in technology have even allowed for the advent of really fabulous temporary wallpapers, perfect kids rooms, those who are in short-term digs or are just plain non-committal.


Do you have a lot of art around your home or business that you’ve been too busy to hang? Let us help you get it out of storage and on to your walls.
