    Karen EubankRESA's Staging to Sell 3 hour MCE class has been a valuable tool in Dallas to create greater visibility and credibility for our profession. Realtors are required to have a specific number of hours in order to maintain their licenses. Most of the courses they have to take are dry and dull so when they have the opportunity to take a class like Staging to Sell they are genuinely delighted to not only learn something new, but to also have fun doing so!  Having taught this over several years it's been gratifying to see more and more hands raise in class when I ask " How many of you have used a stager before?" We've seen a very large increase in just the last year which means the message is getting out!
    The best way to build your own professional visibility and credibility is to become the local authority in your area. There is no better way to do this than by teaching a class where a  Realtor can receive credit. I encourage all stagers to improve their local profile by providing the RESA Staging to Sell class. You will become the "face" of staging in your area and a reliable resource for all Realtors. Karen Eubank, RESA Approved Instructor of the Year 2016.
