In the professional world, the saying goes that you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Dressing for success is extremely important to market oneself, and the same can be said for marketing a home. Dressing a home for success is known as staging, and it’s an important part of the home selling process. Staging is a marketing tool to make a home appeal to a larger audience of buyers. It can also help your space appear to be more neutral, modern, and even larger.
A house is just a house without the knick-knacks, décor, and personal touches that make it a home. Which is why homeowners tend to find it difficult to declutter and detach when it comes time to sell that home. However, as Klay Kelley, a realtor with Crye Leike Executive Realty points out, properly staging a house can make your home selling experience much more pleasant.
Though the process can require time and money, in the end, your home is likely to sell faster when properly staged. “Staged homes tend to spend less days on the market,” says Kelley. In the end, selling your home faster will save you time and money, making the staging worth it.
When a house is properly staged, potential homebuyers are able to see themselves, instead of you, in the house. It’s true that house hunters, as a rule, should look past strictly aesthetic problems and differences in taste when considering whether or not to buy a home, but accomplishing this goal can be easier said than done. It can be very difficult for a potential home buyer to appreciate a house for what it is when he is distracted by the art you find amazing but he finds disturbing. Perhaps a potential homebuyer hates wallpaper, but you think it’s a great choice in the bedroom. Staging your home eliminates these issues.
“When a buyer walks into a home- they want to envision themselves living in that space. If a seller has created an environment that feels welcoming and that they can see themselves living in- the buyer tends to feel more drawn to that home. Overall, many buyers are much more receptive to staged homes,” says Kelley.
Kelley says he and his clients have had a lot of success with selling staged homes. “I have had a number of clients who chose to stage their homes prior to us placing them on the market for sale. We saw positive feedback immediately, with the home outpacing others in the same price range in regard to days on the market before going under contract,” Kelley says.
Staging is even important if your house is empty. “When a home is staged, it helps buyers understand how they can live in a home, so to speak. If a property is empty, buyers often grapple with where to place furniture in their minds, and rooms can seem surprisingly smaller than they actually are. By staging, it allows the buyer to envision that space as they would live in it.”
If the thought of spending money to sell your house makes you queasy, Kelley asserts that it is not necessary to spend a lot of money to stage your home. “Sellers can easily work with the pieces they have and perhaps add a few small items in the staging process.” Kelley says the two easiest things a seller can do that make the biggest impact are updating with fresh neutral paint and decluttering. “In that case your cost is the time invested to declutter and the paint and supplies to repaint and freshen up some rooms.”
When repainting, Kelley suggests creating a neutral space. Since you want your home to appeal to as many people as possible when selling, it is important to avoid jarring wall colors. “Paint any rooms that have colors that are too vibrant to a more neutral color palette,” Kelley says. You may really like a bright green kitchen, but potential home buyers probably won’t. Investing in painting your walls neutral grays, tans, or white colors will go a long way in making your home attractive to a variety of people. If your heart hurts at the thought of getting rid of your colorful walls, you should always keep in mind that your next house can be whatever color you like.
As Kelley points out, decluttering is an essential and easy part of home staging. Getting rid of the personal family photos and school art projects on your fridge will make your kitchen look neater while also depersonalizing your space. Packing away the piles of books on your bookshelves and stowing away any unnecessary knick-knacks or piles of magazines may hurt but will be beneficial in the end. “If you have animals, get a small basket so that all of their toys and other items can be kept in them. This will allow you to scoop them up and stow them out of sight when preparing for a showing. The same can apply if you have small children with lots of toys,” Kelley says, “Keep a basket in any room where they play. This allows you to declutter quickly.” Be prepared to make trips to Goodwill while going through the process. A room naturally looks larger without clutter and is therefore more attractive to buyers. As an added benefit, decluttering and packing your things away will in turn make your own move easier.
Kelley says staging is now an important part of selling. “I do suggest staging homes, even if the seller is only able to do a few rooms. It is definitely worth it.”
The real estate market can be difficult to navigate for both buyers and sellers, especially for anyone buying or selling for their first time.
First-time buyers can easily become overwhelmed as they search for homes, while sellers hoping to get the best price for their homes might be frustrated if offers are slow to come in or fall short of their asking prices.Read More

Barren River Area Safe Space BRASS
Story by Emily Robertson
When the general public hears the term “domestic violence” they might think of situations that only occur in low income or lower education homes, but according to Barren River Area Safe Space, Inc. Executive Director Tori Henninger, domestic violence victims and abusers can be found in any race, education level, employment status or background.
“Domestic Violence is a crime that can happen to anyone and can be perpetrated by anyone,” Henninger said. “Abusive partners utilize power and control over someone they feel they can wield those powers over, and can have Jekyll and Hyde abilities to the outside community. A monster behind closed doors can be an upstanding model citizen in their community.”
Barren River Area Safe Space, Inc., or BRASS Inc., has served as a safe haven for any victim of domestic violence and their families since 1980. The organization provides services to the ten county Barren River Area Development District, which includes Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson and Warren counties. There are 27 staff members providing direct advocacy work with survivors of domestic violence.
While its location and size has changed and grown, the mission of BRASS has always been to provide safety and support to victims of domestic violence and their children; to protect the rights of individuals to be free from any form of abuse; to increase public awareness of domestic violence in order to effect systems change; and to provide opportunities for empowerment that lead to self-sufficiency.
BRASS provides a number of services for individuals that vary depending on factors such as how recent abuse took place, location and housing stability. The physical shelter at BRASS currently has 8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 28 beds and sheltered 405 residents in 2017.
“Our most used services are the 24/7 crisis line, where we had over 5500 crisis calls last year, and access to resources through referrals to local community partners,” Henninger said. “Our number one goal is to always provide safety and security to a population that has felt unstable and unsafe. Building upon safety and security is the foundation of all other programs and resources.”
In order to provide that safety and security, the staff at BRASS takes the matter of confidentiality extremely seriously.
“We ensure the safety of the lives of the men, women, and children in shelter, and make sure that we never confirm or deny the knowledge or existence of a person unless we have previously spoken to that individual and been given permission to speak to whoever is calling” Henninger said. “We also utilize a semi-confidential location, request police transports to shelter when entering shelter, inhabit a locked shelter system that requires a staff person inside to open the doors to the outside. We have numerous security cameras across the property to monitor and use as surveillance from inside the safety of the shelter or office buildings.”
The need for security can make volunteering with the organization a bit more of a commitment. In order to do one-time or one-day volunteering projects with BRASS, Inc. volunteers must provide information so that staff members can ensure that all shelter residents remain safe. In order to be an ongoing volunteer with BRASS, volunteers must complete 40 hours of training before any community service can be completed. Because of these guidelines, the organization often utilizes interns and practicum students in social service fields.
The organization is funded almost entirely through grants at the federal, state and local levels. Additionally, the organization utilizes fundraising through their eBay website and all funding goes toward the operation and maintenance of the emergency shelter, along with programs and services. Because of the nature of their work, BRASS does not host events, but they do hold a client- focused event called Dress for Change. Nearly 300 individuals participate during the spring and fall in the event, which helps them prepare for interviews and acquire work attire. The event is free of charge to all who participate and several corporate sponsors, including Macy’s, Cato and Fruit of the Loom, as well as community organization such as Bowling Green Junior Women’s Club, help to put on the event.
Henninger first started at BRASS in July of 2015 after feeling pulled to the position because of the mission of the organization and the reputation the agency had in the community.
“BRASS has been more than I bargained for, expanding my thought processes, engaging areas of the world I hadn’t experienced before, and creating opportunities to work in an intimate world in a professional capacity,” Henninger said. “My job bridges the personal and professional every day, working in an environment that deals with peoples lives, their livelihoods, and their futures. I see the worst of humanity and the successes of people who overcome all the obstacles to truly be free and live a life they never imagined was possible for them, a life most of us take for granted every day, a life most would consider mundane, but for the clients we work with, a dream come true.”
Henninger truly believes the impact that the staff and volunteers at BRASS have each day ripples out and creates better homes, a better state and, eventually, a better nation.
“The way that domestic violence impacts our community is greater than what happens in one person’s home,” Henninger said. “It leaks out to all areas of a person’s life and changes how you work and live within your own life. In order to continue to open up dialogue and create real opportunities for change, everyone in our community has to recognize domestic violence as a serious issue. BRASS is able to be that voice for the voiceless, a champion for the people who are scared to speak for themselves and fight with those individuals, side-by-side, to regain control of their life.”

Pink Lily Boutique Announces Expansion Of Headquarters And Fulfillment Center
Nationally known lifestyle brand to invest over $2 million, bring 56 new jobs to South Central Kentucky On February 22, The Pink Lily Boutique announced plans to double the footprint of their state-of-the-art fulfillment center in Bowling Green’s South Central Kentucky Industrial Park to more than 50,000 SF of office and industrial space. This project is a $2.05 million investment that will create up to 56 new jobs over the next five years.
Pink Lily, a local start-up, began operations as a Facebook Group in 2013 selling a limited selection of women’s boutique clothing and accessories to the Bowling Green market. Within the company’s first six months of operations, company owner’s Tori and Chris Gerbig knew product demand was quickly outgrowing fulfillment capacity and PinkLily.com was born in January 2014. In the e-commerce site’s first year, sales doubled each month, growing from a projected $50,000 in revenue for the year to $4.1 million. By the end of year two, PinkLily.com would grow by 300 percent.
“We are excited to expand our growing business and bring more jobs to the Bowling Green area,” said Pink Lily President Chris Gerbig. “The additional space and employees will allow us to invest in the equipment and inventory necessary to meet the needs of our customers.”
Since operations began in 2013, Pink Lily has grown to include a flagship brick-and-mortar location on Scottsville Road in Bowling Green, with speculation of opening a second brick-and-mortar location soon. Their offerings have expanded from women’s and children’s clothing to include a custom design department where monogrammed items, embroidery, vinyl designs and screen-printed shirts are available for order. Custom orders have been so successful, the company has invested nearly $100,000 in new equipment to expand their custom department and will launch spin-off site LeisureTees.com later this year. LeisureTees.com will specialize in graphic tees for men, women and children.
“The Pink Lily Boutique is a great example of entrepreneurial determination and success,” said Chamber President and CEO Ron Bunch. “South Central Kentucky is fortunate to be home to the global headquarters of such a great company that has grown from the ground up right here in our backyard. We look forward to their continued growth and success in Bowling Green and across the world.”
Pink Lily currently employs 45 people and will soon pass $50 million in total sales revenue. Their plan is to exceed $100 million in sales by the end of 2020. They are working with clothing manufacturers to add a Pink Lily branded line, to be sold exclusively under the brand’s umbrella. Their current fulfillment center in Bowling Green ships over 1,000 products daily and has shipped over 1.5 million products since launching PinkLily.com in 2014. PinkLily.com sees an average of 25,000 visits per day.
“Pink Lily’s growth and success is impressive, to say the least,” said Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson. “In just a few short years, they have grown to be a nationally-recognized success. We are glad Pink Lily has been a part of Bowling Green’s unprecedented growth in recent years and will remain an important part of the community for many years to come.”
“Pink Lily has done a great job of capitalizing on opportunities to grow their state-of-the-art facility over the last four years,” said Judge-Executive Mike Buchanon. “Making Warren County home for not only their distribution and warehousing operations, but to their first brick-and-mortar store speaks volumes about doing business in our community and we are honored to continue to be their home as they grow across the globe.”
Pink Lily Owner’s Tori and Chris Gerbig are both graduates of Western Kentucky University.
The Pink Lily Boutique is the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce’s second economic development project announcement for 2018, totaling $5.05 million in capital investment and 72 new jobs. For available job opportunities and additional information about Pink Lily, visit www.PinkLily.com.

Please welcome Khabeer Abdul, APRN, FNP-C, to the T.J. Regional Health team. Khabeer specializes in family medicine, and he is treating patients in the T.J. Health Edmonton Family Practice clinic.
Khabeer attended Tennessee State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He earned his Master of Science in Nursing from Austin Peay State University.
When asked about his family medicine career choice, Khabeer said, “Entering into a healthcare facility can be scary, whether it’s for an acute visit, follow-up or hospital admission. Each person is an individual and I take great pleasure, pride and consider it a privilege when I take care of patients. Thus I make it a point to involve patients in their care, so there can be shared decision making, ultimately resulting in better health of the patient. What I truly enjoy is delivering care in a compassionate manner, developing professional relationships with the patients, and gaining their trust as they traverse through life.”
Khabeer moved to the area from a larger city. He said, “Being in a bigger city provides a different lifestyle, however, when commuting time exceeds one hour, this creates a problem. Living in a smaller town offers a better lifestyle and the people are a bit friendlier.”
T.J. Regional Health is proud to welcome Khabeer Abdul to our organization. To schedule an appointment with him at the T.J. Health Edmonton Family Practice clinic, please call 270.432.4800.
Kentucky Downs celebrating Grand Reopening Mar. 23
FRANKLIN, Ky. (Thursday, February 22, 2018) — Kentucky Downs is throwing a party to celebrate completion of its extensive clubhouse renovation.
The track’s Grand Reopening will be Friday, March 23 to show off Kentucky Downs’ remodeling of the year-round entertainment center that also is America’s most unique horse-racing venue. The event is for those at least 21 years old. As always, admission and parking are free at Kentucky Downs.
“We will be ready to both exhale and celebrate that our extreme makeover has finally reached the finish line after more than a year, and we’re inviting everybody to join the party,” said Kentucky Downs director of marketing Amber Norris. “Our guests have experienced inconveniences with the construction, and this is one way to pay them back and rejoice in the new look of Kentucky Downs. The Grand Reopening will offer fun and something for everyone. You know it’s going to be a blast with Nashville on-air personalities Moose (of JackFM) and Lunchbox (of the Bobby Bones Show) mixing it up with the crowd. And if the weather is pleasant, people will be able to enjoy our outside terrace.”
Kentucky Downs’ makeover begins at the entrance, with a dramatic porte cochère that will be the drop-off area for a new valet-parking service. The track’s contemporary bar and lounge area will take center stage, literally, with live music from 3-7 pm CT and 8:30 pm-1 am. Guests also can enjoy the new non-smoking section and high-limit gaming area, along with 750 historical horse racing machines featuring 47 unique game titles.
On full display will be the track’s high-tech 10 X 6 foot GoVision screen that provides outstanding lounge and outside terrace viewing of horse racing and sports, including the day’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament regional action. Lucky 7s Diner, located just off the gaming floor, brings the fun vibe of a classic 1950s diner with a menu featuring everything from burgers and milkshakes to prime rib, pasta, and to all-day breakfast.
Among the Grand Reopening festivities:
• Free Kentucky Downs t-shirts to the first 100 guests through the door, plus numerous merchandise giveaways throughout the day and evening. Doors open at 10 am.
• Live music from the Janine Le Clair Band from 3-7 pm and the Chris Hudson Band from 8:30 pm-1 am.
• Live radio remotes, with WCJK 93.6-FM on site 11 am-1 pm, including its popular personality Moose. Guests can spin the JackFM Jackpot Machine for a chance to win Kentucky Downs swag. WSIX 97.9-FM takes over from 1-3 pm, featuring Lunchbox, co-host of the Bobby Bones Show.
• The popular Cash Cube Machine will be in action. Players Club members playing with their cards will be randomly selected to participate in timed cash grabs, keeping any money deposited into the designated receptacle. Guests can participate by signing up for a Players Club membership, which is free and offers rewards such as free play, discounts and eligibility for drawings and promotions.
The renovation allows Kentucky Downs to offer valet parking starting in early March. The cost will be $5, with Platinum and Diamond Club members receiving complimentary valet as part of their member benefits.
