Free Candidate/Affiliate Meeting – Guest Speaker

David Robertson, Interior Designer and Professional Stager, David Robertson Design

A Mid-Century Modern design fanatic, David launched David Robertson Design in 2007. As a true visionary, he often sees the big picture quickly and executes instinctually. He is recognized as an industry leader, and has over 5,000 combined home staging and interior design projects under his belt. With a background in fine arts, he is keen on using original artwork for all his projects. In fact, most staging artworks are painted by his truly.

Staged Homes, Do They Pay Off?
David will talk about staged houses and whether or not they sell for more money. Does a staged home influence a buyer? How can an appraiser determine an adjustment (or no adjustment) of a staged home verses a non-staged home?

This meeting will be held in the Noble.

As always, don’t forget to join us from 5-6pm for this free event. It may be geared toward Candidates, but topics are often of interest to a variety of people, so EVERYONE is welcome to attend!
