Raphael House of Portland is a multi-faceted domestic violence agency dedicated to ending intimate partner violence for good. They proudly serve individuals and families of all backgrounds, cultures, ages, abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations. Our RESA Portland Chapter gave back to them in a big way this holiday season.
This past weekend we had an extraordinary Meet-Up with our staging colleagues from Seattle. Thirty home stagers participated in a two-day event that was hosted by the Portland Chapter of RESA. There was a Friday evening networking dinner followed by a jam packed Saturday. We started with a tour at OnStage hosted by Todd McAllister who graciously shared lots of information and warehouse tips. We then had lunch at the Portland Food Carts followed by a Tour of Staged Homes featuring condos and houses staged by Synergy Staging and OnStage. After that was an incredible dinner and meeting at one of the most amazing lofts in Portland. When a group of Stagers can gather to share business strategies, insights, and experiences there is nothing better. The evening was topped off with a surprise impromptu performance by gifted pianist Hunter Noack. It was truly a weekend to remember
