PRES Donates $1000s of Dollars To Vancouver Charities!

This year thousands of dollars have been donated to charities on behalf of the PRES Staging School throughout the Lower Mainland. If you are selected as one of our ‘PRES training homes’ we request that instead of paying us for your home makeover, you make a donation to your favourite charity on behalf of the PRES Staging School. Recipients of the donations include animal rescue societies, music not-for-profits, art not-for-profits, childrens’ societies, homeless societies and disadvantaged youth and adults.

For this I am truly grateful because not only does PRES staging resource centre make a difference by transforming homes, we also play a role in transforming lives. By doing this I believe we make the world a better place for all of us.

In 2012, the PRES Staging School is looking into partnering with Habitat For Humanity as our primary charity. More details to follow in 2012.

Wishing you all a very Joyful, Loving & Peaceful 2012.

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!
