Home Staging Tips for DIY Home Sellers!

Home staging expert – trainer and author Dana J. Smithers appeared on the CTV Morning News February 1st. It’s a great way to kick of February as it’s a busy time for home sellers and home stagers. Preparing your home is a very BIG JOB and starts with decluttering, depersonalizing and cleaning…and then the staging.

This clip (show) won’t stay up forever but for a few days you can go to CTV Morning News site and watch the show.

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.
