Sheron Cardin's Input...: My Agent/Stager Sister Tina Has Joined AR- Updated photo per request!

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

My Agent/Stager Sister Tina Has Joined AR- Updated photo per request!

Tina says she is too busy to blog but I will stay on her so she will submit her before and afters with us. Tina is very talented and loves staging her listings. Tina staged the red bedroom that I used in my post Decorating Tip #6 Make YourOwn Headboard. and for the inflatable bed tip. She is very creative and we will all benefit from her sharing...she may have to tell me about it and then I can get it posted in AR...oh well, what are sisters for if you can't use em? 

I have featured her before and after staging work in my newsletters and she always gets a great response.

Tina Hack

Let's give her a little prodding and a big welcome

Tina works her magic in the East Bay and lives in Danville. She promises to finish her profile this week.

Congratulations to Tina (little???) sister of Sharon.  I hope you are as impressed with Active Rain as I am after only 2 weeks of membership.  This site has just blown me away and is more than I ever, ever expected.

Sheron,

Thanks for the post and sharing this special moment. A warm welcome to Tina. Perhaps we'll see your posts soon!

Welcome Tina! this thing can be fun if you're not too careful!

Welcome Tina - Have fun playing in the rain!
Posted by Maureen Maureen over 12 years ago

Thank you all of you so much for the warm welcome.  This Active Rain seems like a wonderful opportunity to chat with everyone in our industry.  I have a new listing that is completely empty.  Once I get it staged, I will post the pictures on the site or send them to Sheron.  That will ensure you will all see the pictures.

Have a great day and much success!

Tina

Welcome Tina!  As Luke said, this thing can be fun if you are not careful.  It can also be all consuming if  you let it.  Keep your proirities in line and let AR work for you.

Welcome to ActiveRain... of course, it will be difficult to compete with Sheron, as we all have found out, but so what, I enjoy trying...

Good luck to you, 

And to Sheron...

May you blog endlessly but not needlessly...

Hi Tina,

You're going to love it here!  Welcome and have fun!

I do see the family resemblance, by the way!

Hey Sheron...

Are you still in Dana Point? I have two sets of cousins in Dana Point... one on the water on Breakers Isle, and one in Ritz Cove, both gated communities...

One day soon I will visit them again (I am always out there, as the one on the water is sort of my big brother, in family terms), and I will complain to them that their homes need decorating... 

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 12 years ago

Hey Paul, I was just walking on Salt Creek in January. I watched every house go up nail by nail. Bette Middler lives there and Eddy Money...at least they moved in at that time. I have thousands and thousands of sea shells from the cove on the other side of the rocks...that is MY BEACH...here is some pictures. Notice the date...the last day I lived in Dana Point.

Salt Creek

See the Ritz in the distance? That was my local bar.

Dana Point is a nice place... lovely beaches... I happen to live in New England, but on the water as well... although Narragansett Bay is not quite the same as the same as the Pacific Ocean...

So where now? How far from Dana Point are you guys? 

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 12 years ago

DP is heaven on earth. I lived on Copper Lantern. Now I live 30 minutes south of the center of California. Tina lives in the Bay Area and another sister lives in Seattle on Lake Washington. I am out of my element but for a good cause. Thanks for asking.

Hey Tina...are you getting all this? 

Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago
and the good cause?

Haley
Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago
Is that a daughter?
Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 12 years ago
Granddaughter. What's the title of this post? I guess it is okay since it is my sister I introduced...I had to check. Her name is Haley and I took her to TJ in Mexico in October and she learned to wheel and deal. Yes, I am too young to be a grandmother but I am. She will be 11 this month. I have raised her since she was 9 months. She has been the greatest joy of my life but I had to make some big changes and location was one of them. My family is in Fresno and I needed help. Thanks for asking.

Beautiful Grand daughter Sheron...

Good reasons are hard to find, but when found are worth their weight in something heavier than gold...

Treat her well, better than a daughter, and all will be as it should... 

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 12 years ago

Thank you Paul. I am doing my best! She is 11 now going on 18 ;)

 

Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago

If I had been around, her first words would have been Visa and American Express...

Just so you know... 

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 12 years ago

Welcome, Tina, to this wonderful group!  I'm SURE Sheron told you about the bonus of the "addiction" it creates---or there's a wonderful post on it :)  So so you've been warned!

Posted by Laura Cerrano, Certified Feng Shui Expert, Speaker & Researcher (Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island) over 12 years ago

I have much to be thankful for then Paul...;D

Carole - when you come to California...we will go to the Bay Area and hang out with Tina, Shell, and a few other fun sista's. 

Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago

are you updating all your blogs?

And how do you get all that stuff on the side bar of the blog???? 

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 11 years ago

Hi tall Paul again - those tag clouds are the keywords you write into the small window at the bottom of your posts. I didn't realize that I had so many and don't need all the breakdowns so am cleaning them up...it is going to take me a few days. 

Thank you for your kindness! 

Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 11 years ago
Sorry Paul, now I know what you are talking about...the widgets! Just click on them and you can get your own.
Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 11 years ago

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 11 years ago

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 11 years ago
Welcome to the AR family.
Posted by Marvin Thomas (Allegiance Mortgage Corparation) over 11 years ago
Hey tall Paul - all you have to do to get them into your side panel is copy the code, open your settings, in the first window...enter the code at the end of your profile description and then save.
Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 11 years ago

Hi Tina;

    Welcome to A/R!  Your sister was one of the very first ones to make certain that I felt warm and welcomed here so it brings me great pleasure to now extend that kindness to you!  Enjoy!

Cheers!

Posted by Gina McNew, Host of Diva in the House - The Voice of Real Estate Staging Radio (diva la difference interiors) over 11 years ago

but which code did you select? There are options for FaceBook, WordPress, etc... I dont know which code to use...

Thanks for your patience on this... I realize it is off topic for your blog...

Posted by Paul Silver, Rhode Island full service real estate firm over 11 years ago
I will email you Paul...sorry Tina and all :)
