Jill Gargus makes Top 10 Finalist in RESA’s Professional Stager of the Year 2013
A couple of months ago I entered a Staging Contest with RESA, the Real Estate Staging Association.
RESA supports and encourages Stagers across North America, and provides educational forums, contests, ethic and conduct monitoring as well as fun stuff like contests!
Stagers across Canada and the USA, all voted for their peers in the first round of voting. Photos were submitted and votes were based on a 1-10 scale. I spent over 3 hours voting for hundreds of my peers, reviewing their before and after photos WITHOUT knowing whose pictures they were. The names and watermarks were removed off all submitted photos and the judging was based on finished product and overall first impression, use of scale, color and transformations. Talent was strong and the pictures were all really good, it was a tough competition honestly!
Well, the news is….I made it to the TOP 10 in Canada of Professional Stagers…and I am so honored and excited! There were multiple categories as well, and so many inspiring stories
And now it’s off to second rounds of voting for the all finalists and the winning title! Honestly I am so thankful to be nominated and I know how Oscar Nominee’s feel now when they say, “I am just glad to be nominated”-it’s true!
For all finalist details and photos…it’s exciting! Check it out!
