Selling a luxury home involves more than selling an expansive property — it’s about imagining a luxury lifestyle. For many Realtors, that task can only be accomplished with the expertise of home stagers like premier Dallas stager and designer George Bass.
With more than a decade of staging experience and over 1,200 properties in his portfolio, Bass knows what catches a buyer’s eye and what it takes to sell a home.
For Bass, the keys to creating a luxury lifestyle is to make potential buyers “fall in love in the foyer” and continue that experience throughout the home.
Each element of design is placed to not only highlight features of the home but allow prospective homeowners the chance to envision where their own pieces could be placed.
“Staging is … like putting your best foot forward on the red carpet of real estate show business — all the world’s a stage,” Bass says.

Consecutive days of triple-digit temperatures can only mean one thing — summer pool season has officially arrived in Dallas.
This summer, consider cooling off in a saltwater swimming pool, a luxurious alternative to traditionally chlorinated pools. While avoiding chlorine in swimming pools is virtually impossible, a saltwater cleaning system is a gentler approach to pool maintenance.
Rather than directly depositing pure chlorine into your pool system, saltwater systems use salt cells and a chlorine generator to form a chemical reaction that produces chlorine. In doing so, the saltwater system reduces the creation of chloramines, an ammonia derivative present in traditional pool systems.
Without chloramines, you’ll notice less irritation on your skin and eyes. For asthma sufferers — and those with a general disregard for the smell of chlorine — there won’t be a smell at all, because chlorine created by the salt is less concentrated than regular chlorine used in pools.
And don’t worry if you think that every dip will feel like you’ve taken a trip into the Pacific. Saltwater pools use just enough salt to clean, but not enough that it’s detectable to the human tongue.
If you need more enticing, we’ve selected five saltwater pools that will make summer swims all the more glamorous.
