5 Day PRES Intensive Staging & Redesign Training March 22nd

Now is the time to take your ‘leap of faith’ and sign up for this intensive 5 day professional staging and redesign course offered March 22nd in the Vancouver area. A tentative class is scheduled for late April in Victoria BC with instructor Dana J. Smithers.

The prestigious PRES course teaches classroom theory AND hands-on staging and redesign in real client’s homes. This is a must-do to gain your confidence and validate your abilities!

Graduates of the PRES program love what they are doing and loved the course, support and follow up they receive. Here are a few testimonials:

I have known Dana Smithers for over two years through her Interior Redesign & Home Staging program at PRES Staging Resource Centre. When I first met Dana I was really taken back with the support that I received. Taking this program, I was now entering a new part of my life and it was a little scary, but the support I received from Dana and some of the other students was wonderful. I have continued to get education on Home Staging and Interior Redesigning from PRES with the monthly meetings. Dana has kept me up to date with the new trends and continues to educate me with these monthly programs offered through PRES.

I have found that Dana is a great role model for women, and someone I look up. To say that I received my training from Dana Smithers is quite the honour to me. When someone asks “where did you take your training to be a Interior Redesign Home Stager” I reply with my head held high and a big smile on my face….. “I received my training right here in BC from Dana Smithers of the PRES Resource Centre”.

Dana will always be on my speed dial. I remember when I had to do my first empty Home Staging quote I phoned Dana………”what do I do” she said to me Dianne first of all breathe… can do this your a “Great Stager”. Thinking to myself, yeah why panic, I sat back in my chair and thought Dana is right “I am a Great Stager” and thanks to Dana I know I am a “Great Stager” she gave me the confidence I needed to follow my dream.

Colleen McClure
Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
