Founded in 2014 by Realtor® Jacen Crehan and designer Daniel Coffman, Staged Spaces provides premium home staging and interior design services to the San Gabriel Valley, Inland Empire, LA, OC and beyond. With their team of vibrant designers, Staged Spaces’ goal is to take your space to the next level. Whether you’re preparing to sell your home or in need of a total home transformation, Staged Spaces are the dedicated professionals that will make it happen.

 

The birth of Staged Spaces started with Jacen jumping on an opportunity to stage his own home. “Going through the process turned out to be creatively fulfilling to both Daniel and I,” said Jacen.

 

Their dynamic is a perfect balance of the pair’s passion and expertise in design and business. Daniel’s event design background  proved beneficial in gaining accounts with wholesale furniture companies, while Jacen’s real estate background and previous work in flipping homes for friends and family both set them up for professional success.

They currently offer more than 30 collections between bedrooms, dining rooms and living spaces. Their décor collections were meticulously put together in order to pull off an elevated look to staging and design. Currently featured are the industrial-style Montreal Living Room set and the La Jolla Dining Set – a collection crafted with solid pine and mahogany wood.

 

Daniel and Jacen don’t just put furniture in a room. Their design showcases the best features of the home and helps create the most stunning marketing photos possible. In addition, they pride themselves on using their hand selected pieces to give a unique yet familiar “home” appeal to the new buyer.

Agents Make a Difference at the State Capitol

Leg Day - Main 2

 

May 2nd, 2018
Podley associates Todd Hays, Margaret Garemore, Nick Frias, along with President Crystal Narramore, joined 2,000 Realtors® at the C.A.R.’s
46th Annual Leg Day in Sacramento. This year, agents were advocating for proactive solutions to the housing affordability crisis. After a meeting where Governor Jerry Brown spoke, the Realtors marched over to the State capitol. There, they met with elected officials, including Senator Anthony Portantino and Assemblyman Chris Holden. 

 

Leg Day - Todd

Todd Hays currently serves as a Director for the C.A.R., and is a representative on the Local Government Forum and the Legislative Committee. This is his sixth time attending Legislative Day. “It’s truly one of the most fulfilling things I do as a Realtor,” Todd said. “It shows, in a most powerful way, the impact each of us can make at the state level.”

 

Crystal Narramore, Podley Properties President and C.A.R. director also attended Leg Day and is highly active in the real estate community, most recently as a featured panelist with WomenUP! at the recent REVive! conferece. “C.A.R. is a powerful voice in Sacramento due to the participation and involvement of Realtors across the State.  Legislative Day has been an eye-opening experience for me to see the positive impact and influence C.A.R. has on the policies that affect our industry.”

Leg Day - Margaret & Nick

Margaret Garemore attended Leg Day to help advocate for potential home-buyers and owners. “As the AAR 2018 President and a CAR Director, I was honored to be among so many Realtors who were willing to step up in the fight for home ownership and private property rights at Legislative Day at the state Capitol.”

 

This is the first year attending Leg Day for 2017 C.A.R. Rising Star, Nick Frias. “Attending the conference and marching to the Capitol was an eye-opening experience. It was exciting to see Realtors involved in the political aspect of the business and not just selling homes, and it helped me to more fully understand the importance and power that we have as agents.”

 

For the past 46 years, Legislative Day remains C.A.R.’s pinnacle legislative event.  It gives California Realtors the opportunity to discuss real estate issues directly with their state legislators. Attending Legislative Day is not only a great investment an in agent’s business. It also provides the agents with an opportunity to hear from California’s political leaders and their state association’s leadership.

Design, Architecture & Art: Agents Get Involved at the Pasadena Showcase House

Pasadena Showcase House - Diane Hatfield

Diane Hatfield first joined the Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts (PSHA) benefit community in 2012 after visiting the Showcase House with family and friends as an annual tradition for many years, and volunteering as a docent in 2011. “I fell in love with the aspect of being involved from beginning to end. As a Realtor®, I felt this was a great way to network, give back to the community and support the various music programs that the philanthropy contributes to.” Diane served as the Tickets Co-chair for this year.

 

Pasadena Showcase House - Jan Wiles Pasadena Showcase House - Music Mobile

Jan Wiles volunteers with the PSHA’s Music Mobile program, just one of the many services the PSHA provides. She assists instructors from the Pasadena Conservatory of Music in introducing third grades to the sound of orchestra. The students also have the opportunity to touch and play those instruments..It’s so rewarding to see the excitement on their faces when they make a sound on a tuba, or violin or drum. One little boy said to me after playing the violin, ‘Where would you get something like this?’ My heart melted!” Beyond the introductory information the students receive, the program serves to stimulate curiosity about music and encourage further exploration.

 

The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is one of the nation’s oldest premier design show houses, celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, and is on view now through May 20th. Visit pasadenashowcasehouse.org to purchase tickets and for viewing instructions.

Palm Springs Workshop // Historic Residential Properties

Historic Residential Properties - Collage

Historic Residential Properties: Marketing Advantages & Financial Incentives


“Teaching REALTORS® about the values and incentives associated with historic properties is exciting.
There is so much misinformation out there. It’s a benefit to buyers and sellers when the right information gets out to everyone.”
Todd Hays, Podley Properties Realtor


This past Monday, more than 50 Realtors attended this half-day workshop in Palm Springs on historic residential properties. Guest speakers assisted Realtors, homeowners and preservationists by identifying
financial, tax, and regulatory incentives.


These incentives can be used to offset rehabilitation & maintenance costs of historic homes – and are an effective marketing tool as well!
Focused towards Realtors, case examples illustrated the incentives available at the state and local level, the associated eligibility requirements and how to gain access to financial incentives for historic preservation.

Podley Properties Agents Give Back by Reading Across PASadena

 
March 2nd, 2018

 

Several Podley Properties Associates from the Pasadena and Sierra Madre offices participated in the 3rd annual REALTORS® Read Across PASadena Day. Our agents worked alongside the Pasadena Unified School District and the Pasadena Educational Foundation in participating in this wonderful program. It takes place each year on Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The participating realtors picked the books to read to K-3rd graders at schools across the PUSD.


Each of our offices is working to raise $500.00. This money will be used to buy one book for each 2nd grader in the district. At the end of the school year, the books will be given out by the participating realtors.
The program also provides books to the Door of Hope, a program serving homeless families in Pasadena. This drive supports the district-wide goal of every student being a fluent reader by the end of third grade.


Podley Properties is exceptionally proud to participate in Read Across PASadena Day, and to see the kids’ excitement about their new books. As Dr. Seuss’s character The Lorax says, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
