Respectfully is how Benchmark agent Sharon Brugman approaches the staging process offering clients this competitive advantage.

The accredited staging professional began working for Benchmark in 2010 and quickly established herself closing around $7.5 million in sales last year.

Benchmarks strong company foundation of solid ethics and business practices provides me and my clients with a competitive edge in buying and selling homes, Brugman explains. Using my sales and marketing background, I combine my business formula with the Benchmark difference and it has really paid off for my clients throughout the Williamson County area, Brugman said.

As an experienced property investor and with an eye for design, Brugmans listing formula is to present the best-looking property possible so it stands above the competition. As a marketing bonus and added value, I sit down with clients and draw up a staging plan for their home. After walking through the home, we create a honey-do list prioritizing items with deadlines.Once weve carefully worked through the list, we implement the staging plan and then the property is ready for the market, Brugman says.

Combining good staging with the latest in technology like QR codes for listing information and individual websites per listing have been important to the process. Check out a video of Brugmans before and after staging skills.

With a good stock of furnishings, artwork and home dcor, from the staging plan to additional props, Brugman includes this service as part of her overall marketing of the home.Here are her three tips for successful home staging:

  • Neutralize color and dcor use pops of color in accessories.
  • De-personalize and take out all cutesy pictures.
  • Show Them, Dont Tell Them. Dont say this home has a lot of space IF you remove all the clutter. Show them by removing it ahead of time.

These experiences also provide a winning combination when helping her clients purchase a home. A big picture agent with great instinct for property possibilities, buyers capitalize on Brugmans skills to help choose a property that is not only a good investment, but will be transformed into the perfect home for their family.

In the end, the biggest tip that has worked best for Brugman is theGolden Rule which she says Benchmark CEO Phillip Cantrell believes in just as strongly.

Everyday, I work very hard at treating people the way I would want to be treated. Its a rule thats never failed me.
