The Think Tank Realtor’s Event
The Think Tank Realtor’s Event begins at 11 a.m. at 55 Railroad Ave #4 East in Garnerville. The free program will introduce realtors to their stagers who furnish empty homes to make them more visually interesting. The Think Tank also "stages" homes that people are moving into and will perform a "daykover," which takes a client's existing possessions and organizes and places them in the house so it is ready for them to move in.
