About The Show
The Resource Home Show was inspired by Carla Labianca and Lisa Danbrot’s love of older homes, their status as owners of older homes and their lives as Realtors® in a community of older homes.
The predominantly early 20th century housing stock of the locale is a manifestation of history. At the nucleus of the Resource Home Show is the desire of a community to preserve this history through restoration of original architectural features and respectful renovation and design, while offering the homeowner options to imprint their own individual vision, employ practical problem solving techniques, and maintain or upgrade systems, operations, mechanics and structural integrity.
Beyond what the internet or individual referrals can offer, the Resource Home Show provides a forum for a community of regional homeowners who seek home-improvement professionals on a continual basis to meet, engage and exchange information, firsthand, with numerous service providers in a variety of fields. Conversely it offers home-industry professionals an opportunity to expand their client bases and cultivate opportunities to forge business-to-business relationships with other local and regional businesses.
Through the exhibition and display of projects, DIY demonstrations, and partnerships of local independent makers, this event aims to address an industry call for supply and demand that benefits all involved.
In 2019, proceeds from the Resource Home Show went to support Isaiah House, a shelter in East Orange, NJ, that works to reduce the prevalence of homelessness, hunger and unemployment throughout the Oranges and Essex County, while striving to keep the family unit of its residents intact.
