Satisfied Staging client

I recently got this sweet note from a client:

I just wanted to write to you and thank you for all your helpful advice you gave to me when I was staging my home in West Seneca for a sale. I believe you may have come over sometime before summer 2008. I made the recommended changes you suggested, i.e. new front concrete steps, laminate floors in dining and living room, removal of border in kitchen, and painting of many rooms.

My house sold in 3 1/2 weeks!

Got the spring cleaning itch?

As the weather starts to break and the sunshine highlights the dust bunnies and dirty windows, it is time for a really good cleaning frenzy.

Do you need some help? encouragement? a plan?

Check out this website:

The same blogger that did crockpot cooking everyday for a whole year (2008) has some great advice with a dash of humor to help you get your house organized, clean and meals planned. Sounds good, right?!

I like this website and blog because it makes the tasks not seem so overwhelming.

I particularly like her post on the huge task of SPRING CLEANING

Will you be my Friend?

Hello faithful readers of my blog.

Lately I have been working on beefing up my Facebook page and LinkedIn profile.

Are you also in Facebook?

Will you be my friend? (I feel like I'm on the grade school playground again) You'll find me under Julie Dana, of course ;)

Just be sure in mention in the friendship invite that you are a blog reader so I know you are not some weirdo ;)

Do you know about LinkedIn?

It is a professional networking site. I highly recommend it to connect and reconnect with other professionals.

I would love especially to get testimonials from former clients. Is that you? Can you do me that favor?

Interior Decorating and Home Staging is a very personal type of business. I really get to know my clients. I consider many of you my friends. Let's help each other network and connect.
