It’s been 6 years from the first time my team at Professional Home Staging and Design New Jersey, staged our first house and we’ve been very lucky to see our business grow and blossom into the success it is today. I would like to first extend my thanks to everyone who has used my company to stage their home over the last 6 years, and those of you who continue to have faith in and support me and my staff. Your encouragement means the world to us, and has helped us grow from staging 25 homes in our first year to more than 500 homes across the state!
This week, we all will be sitting down to enjoy a meal with our families (preferably in a tastefully decorated and comfortable home) and partaking in those Thanksgiving traditions that bond us together. In my family we always take some time after the meal to go around the table and share something that we’re thankful for from the past year. The only problem is, I have so many things to be thankful for it’s hard to narrow it down to just one! I won’t subject my family to listening to me go on and on – so instead I’ll share some of the things I’m thankful for with you.
I’m thankful for:
- Every homeowner who took a risk on spending the money to stage their home and saw a great result.
- Each investor who was doubtful of staging but decided to give it a try and continued to stage each home they invest in.
- Any client that never hesitated in the decision to stage their home and gave us months of notice to prepare their home.
- Every happy customer who has referred us to another homeowner or investor.
- The incredible word-of-mouth those happy clients have shared with others.
- The incredibly hard work and attention to detail put into each home by our steadfast crew who diligently position each piece of furniture and make our vision a reality.
As we enter the holiday season, it’s also important to consider those who aren’t as fortunate as we are. With each new home I stage, I’m reminded of those who don’t have a home of their own or a place to hang their hat each night. Keeping that in mind, I encourage you to seek out the nearest homeless shelter in your neighborhood and provide any assistance you can. Whether it’s in the form of volunteering your time or making donations, every bit helps!
I am truly grateful for the success of my business and the love of my family and friends, but I’m also aware that things could have gone very differently. This holiday season try not to take anything for granted, and share the wealth with your community in any way you can. I look forward to a busy and blessed holiday season as we head into 2018 with a strong start.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
