Are you taking advantage of ‘free’ on-going home staging learning?

If you live in an urban city and you are a home stager chances are you have access to networking groups that support home stagers and related-industry professionals. In the Vancouver area we are fortunate to have a company like Fluff Rentals host breakfast meetings once a month now. Patti Houston owner, likes to bring in speakers who can provide on-going learning in the ever changing growing world of home staging. Today Aura McKay a professional photographer was the guest speaker today and she shared some great tips with us. I even learned how to lighten my photos in my camera instead of in photoshop!

Aura McKay captivatingly entertaining!

The Fluffians provided the hospitality, a great meeting area and some fantastic networking with fellow stagers, decorators and designers. I’ll be doing a breakfast meeting and setting up some workshops in the near future.

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. If you’ve ever thought you might enjoy this line of work, or even to do it for yourself and friends, get in touch – Let’s chat!
