‘Amy Adams in LEAP YEAR is a STAGER!!!!

Home Staging is still relatively new in Canada and we are making major inroads to having both realtors and home sellers realize the value that we bring to the selling of their home. It is a proven statistic that staged homes do sell SOONER and for MORE MONEY than unstaged homes. We know this to be true.

But to see the leading lady (Amy Adams)  in a first run Hollywood movie LEAP YEAR, staging a vacant condo in Boston this says to me we have finally made it !!! We are considered bona-fide professionals.

In a local radio station was running an ad for a software accounting package and they used a home stager as an example. This is very very good news – the word is getting out there. !

Colleen McClure Administrator & Proud owner of PRES Staging® - Expert Home Stager. When I was very young I began drawing interiors, it just came naturally. When I work with a client now, I see the finished project completed in my minds-eye as they explain how they would love to see their space created. I am able to provide sketches on the spot of their vision so this invokes client confidence and excitement for the project from the inception through to the brilliant manifestation – How Fun! When the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements, other passions led me to full-time work as a career counsellor. I very much enjoyed assisting people one-on-one to discover their own talents but this was an arena where I would develop effective techniques in workshop design and group facilitation as well. This would lead to a ‘happy marriage’ as I would apply these skills and passions when I purchased PRES Staging® - The Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. It’s truly the greatest joy to inspire others to discover and hone their innate talents – To witness their emerging confidence while coaching them on design principals and providing them the tools to start and run their own Home Décor businesses for Redesign and Staging.
