Ask The Expert Event: Saturday 9/12/15

St. John & Myers Jewelry, 400 Old Vine St. Suite 100, Lexington, KY 40507
LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 31, 2015) - St. John & Myers: Antique and Period Jewelry is hosting a free “Ask the Expert” day with Professional Gemologist Louis Scholz on Saturday, September 12th from 10 AM to 12 PM at their Lexington storefront at 400 Old Vine Street, Suite 100.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to bring a family heirloom to St. John and Myers for a one-on-one verbal appraisal, a service which normally begins at $55 for a group of three items. There will be no charge for this community event, but participants are encouraged to sign up in advance as spaces are limited. Reservations can be made by calling St. John & Myers at 859-559-4242.
“Louis is a Renaissance Man of the antique world; he knows about all types of antiques,” Olivia Johnson Scholz, President of St. John & Myers, says, “He has 30 years of experience as a professional gemologist and a broad background in the jewelry industry, not just with jewelry and gems, but also sterling silver, watches, coins and costume jewelry.” Mr. Scholz is a prominently featured jewelry expert on KET’s Kentucky Collectibles. Nationally known as a speaker on the subject of antique and period jewelry, his appearances include the AGS Southeastern Guild and Annual Conclave/Conference, the NAJA Annual Conference, and the ASA Master Gemologist Appraiser Course. Mr. Scholz is the only jeweler in Central Kentucky with expertise in antique and period jewelry, custom design, and restoration of antique jewelry.
St. John and Myers has been named by the national publication, InStore Magazine, as one of the “Coolest stores” in America. “The store’s aesthetic resonates thematically with its merchandise,” wrote Eileen McClelland of InStore Magazine, “Of St. John & Myers’ 16 showcases, 14 are devoted to antique and estate jewelry - pieces made between 1850 and 1960.”
Last spring, over 20 participants pre-registered for the spring event which lasted three hours from 10 AM to 1 PM. More signed up at the door, or attended as guests for those who pre-registered. After their meeting with Mr. Scholz, many participants chose to sign up for follow-up appointments to discuss the restoration of their antique jewelry or to get a formal written appraisal so the item could be insured.
This is a rare opportunity for Central Kentuckians to find out how much their heirlooms are worth for no fee. They can reserve their time slot by calling St. John & Myers at 859-559-4242 or e-mailing Galen Velonis at connect@stjohnandmyers.com.

PODS® of Lexington Provides ‘Moving Bridge’ to Homeowners During the Home Staging Process

May 1, 2015 - Jun 21, 2015 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Lexington, KY
An essential tool is helping many Lexington residents to sell their homes quicker while making a better profit. Home Staging allows buyers to see the real potential in making a house a home. The process of Home Staging however, means that current residents need applicable storage that allows them the flexibility to house their belongings for a period of time.

In February 2015, the Lexington market saw 651 homes sold with a sales total of $110,910,615, compared to 605 homes sold in February 2014, based on information from Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors. According to Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corp, a survey found that staged homes spent half the time on the market than non-staged homes and sold for 6 percent above the asking price.

“The buyer needs to imagine themselves in the home,” explains Paul Campbell, Realtor with The Jubilee Team of Rectory Hayden Realtors. “Remove all personal photos and pictures; buyers can easily get distracted. Get rid of furniture that makes the room feel “small.” Consider painting and removing wallpaper. And lastly, if it smells it will not sell.”

Storage providers, like PODS of Lexington, offer homeowners its’ expertise on moving and storing all of their home furnishings to make the process of home staging, seamless.
“From what I’ve seen in the Lexington market, particularly from April to October, people are selling their homes faster than they anticipated by staging their home,” explained Ken Kocon, General Manager of PODS of Lexington. “The flexibility of using a PODS container allows the customer to rent a container from us, empty out their clutter so that their home looks better to potential home buyers and then they can either have the PODS container stored at our warehouse or delivered to their home.”
With the peak buying season already approaching, now is the time for current residents to begin the de-cluttering process and prepare their homes for staging. A 2011 study by The Real Estate Staging Association showed that homes staged prior to listing sold 79 percent faster than those staged after being listed.
“Declutter, declutter, declutter, this is where it’s so important to have a place to put things,” said Campbell.
“So getting your stuff into a storage area like a PODS container, even it’s sitting on the street or in front the house, is by far the best.”
Homeowners are finding they need a “bridge” between staging and moving. Having a PODS container allows them that bridge to store their home furnishings, while allowing them to take their time during the moving process.
“PODS containers can provide that ‘moving bridge’ to customers who need to store their belongings for a period of time between staging their home and moving into their new one, especially if the closing dates do not coincide with one another,” said Kocon. “For my team and myself, we know how to make that moving bridge so the task of moving is easy and seamless.”
