Online PR News – 02-March-2012 – – Charleston, SC Lorelie and Coy Brown, franchise owners of Showhomes Charleston, walked away from the Showhomes 2012 Annual Conference with the Rising Star award for Best in Staging Design.
Those competing for the Best in Staging Design Rising Star award are those franchise location owners that have been in business 18 months or less. They submit before and after photos of staged homes which are anonymously judged by staging experts. These professionals base their verdict on trends in furniture and accessories, Showhomes staging guidelines for furniture placement for focal points and traffic flow, appropriate lighting and artwork usage, and overall visual appeal to buyers.
"Our entire team is thrilled to have received this award, especially in our first year with Showhomes," says Lorelie Brown, owner and staging consultant of the Charleston franchise. "It is rewarding to know that we are on-point with the emphasis of our business and fully ensuring that our clients are pleased."
The staging aesthetic is an important part of the Showhomes business model, which centers on the staging of vacant houses. According to the Showhomes website, "staging is a science, and we create environments that strike emotional chords with buyers which lead to list price sales." Live-in Home Managers are trained to stage and maintain the homes while they are on the market, helping them sell faster.
"We must now raise the bar to further exceed expectations and continue to grow," continues Brown. "Each of us believes so much in the Showhomes concept, and we're passionate about what we do each and every day. We feel privileged to serve real estate agents and homeowners in Charleston with our unique home staging services, so these awards are just icing on the cake."
