Jackson West is joining our panel of experts at the RESA International Home Staging Conference.
Jackson’s love of architectural features, furniture, artwork and accessories made him a success from the start of his staging career. Since launching his home staging company, Reveal Estate, in 2006 he has merchandised properties selling for a combined total of more than 70 million dollars. His interior redesign work can be seen in the book “Home Staging For Dummies”™ as well as mutliple editions of the “Staging Standard” magazine and various home decor publications. Jackson is also featured on a television series for the W Network in Canada and is an award winning blogger.
A “Staging Guru” of information and trends in the industry, Jackson’s insight and knowledge is often sought after by other home stagers. When he is not working in private residences or model homes he travels as a keynote speaker as well as a mentor and instructor for Certified Staging Professionals™. While his niche has long been downtown properties in a higher price range, the principles of design, functionality and flow he teaches are equally effective in every home.
