Rathjen, CCU President/CEO. “Even with the growing recovery from the recent recession, we’re still very much in a ‘buyers’ market.’ While most sellers are very clear on what makes a house a ‘home’ in their eyes, they are often unsure about how to make their property more attractive to potential buyers. We’re excited to offer a workshop that focuses on the staging and selling experience, giving attendees the opportunity to learn best practices on how to generate a positive response from those planning to purchase a new home.” Tara Quinn owner of QUINNtessential Staging & Design (pictured above), and Chris Mostyn, a Senior Account Executive of Brook Furniture will lead the workshop, offering helpful tips on how to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that will attract potential buyers to properties.
