I don't get why clients want to argue with me. But, I guess they tell their doctor they know best and challenge their spouse at every opportunity.
I had a consultation Sunday. I only took a few pictures and will try to fill in the blanks.
There was a wall of windows and a door leading to a deck from the family room. The sellers had a sofa in front of the door and a console table next to the sofa. Two club chairs were crunched together on the staircase wall.
I explained that the sofa needed to be flipped to the opposite wall. Buddy vehemently disagreed.
"No. That door is stupid. We don't even use that door." Buddy
"We are selling the windows, the view, and access to the deck." ME
Buddy does a bull snort then the moves sofa.
The console table needed to be moved, too. There was a monster table next the the fireplace with a mirror over it that was overwhelming. (Sorry, no picture.)
"We need to take the big table out and put the smaller console table in it's place." ME
"I made that table. We like it in front of the windows." Buddy
"It is a beautiful table but it is blocking light and the view. We are selling square footage. It will create the illusion of more space." ME

*Disclaimer: This house WAS NOT STAGED. I was illustrating the difference staging makes. The first time I posted this I referred to the client as an asshole. Prudence and comments from my readers encouraged me to change the offensive term.
