6 Apr , 2012  

Member Malcolm Torres, owner of the Charlotte and Asheville based video company Red Leaf Films, recently presented his company to the members of CRESN at our weekly meeting. While educating the group on the services that his company can provide, Malcom used a short film presentation to do his talking.

9 Mar , 2012  

Creative Home Stager's founder Carol Smith

Carol Smith, the founder of Creative Home Stagers, educated the CRESN group on what Home Staging is and the benefits of staging your home in any market.  She stunned the group with before and after pictures of recently staged homes.

Did you know that 94% of professionally staged homes sell on average of 29 days or less, compared to non-staged homes?

“Home staging” is the act of preparing a home, condo, or other property for sale in the real estate marketplace.
