Making your open house memorable is the ultimate goal for me. Whether the house is a beautiful home on the lake, or a little frame house on an average city street, the most important part of my job is to create an ambiance when u walk in the front door. The history and mechanics of the house are the history and mechanics- they r what they r. Everyone gets the same details. But the feeling- that is unique. Every person that comes through the door will feel differently. But if I have done my job, I will present this home in it's best light. Open the blinds. Let the sunshine in. Make sure your windows sparkle. Have it smelling beautiful. Add some sound- football on Sunday. Music in the bedrooms. I want someone to walk in that door who will immediately feel at home in this house. Like they finally found it. Then I have done what u have hired me to do. Find someone who will love this property as much as you have.
More than anything, this is my "thing". It is what I have spent most of my career doing. And hosting an open at Christmas can be exceptional. It is when your home feels it's best, it's most magical. Don't shut it down because it is "that time of year". Celebrate your home's beauty, and u will find it's next proud owner.
