Home Stager Interviewed on Global TV & Shaw TV

As a pioneer in the home staging industry it’s my duty to promote and educate the public on the benefits of home staging. It is a proven fact that staged homes sell for more money and sooner than homes that are not staged.

In January I created my 2011 Vision Board with Fanny Kiefer Studio 4 Interview in my Feng Shui Bagua Career section. I did this a few years ago as well but I knew I needed to write a book Start & Run a Home Staging Businessto get on the show, and so I did! My Vision Board has manifested into a real live interview for me with Fanny Kiefer of Studio 4 on Wednesday July 6th and I am excited!

Fanny Kiefer in my Career Section of my Vision Board

Here’s the story of how all this great PR has come about:

My publicist Sarah Yu of Self-Counsel Press pitched my book Start & Run a Home Staging Business to the National Post and I wrote several blog posts for them on home staging tips.

From there the Vancouver Sun editor liked the stories and decided to have a freelance writer Alison Applebe come and do an interview with me. This article should be in the Sun early July in their HOME section.

Sarah then got me a television spot on a local show Global TV and I again talked about the benefits of home staging while promoting my book.

I then used all this media/PR information when I wrote my own pitch to Ian MacKenzie to get on Fanny’s show. This was on my ‘bucket list’ and I felt I could manifest it in time. So at 9am on Wednesday July 6th I have the pleasure of sitting across the table from Fanny Kiefer whom I totally admire for her professionalism, her busy savvy, and her overall brilliance as a women entrepreneur.

I will be talking about the benefits of home staging for home sellers and my intention is to promote it so well that many of the PRES graduates have home sellers calling them to help them stage their home. Of course I hope to attract some potential new students for my PRES Staging & Redesign course offered the week of July 11th.

If you want more information about creating your own Vision Board as a home stager, go to my Archived eNewsletters in January 2011 and download the Feng Shui Western Bagua which is how I create my boards. You don’t need to use the bagua at all, it’s just a guide.

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.
