PRES Stagers Are ‘Change Agents’ bringing new life into old looks!

There are 2 things in my life that make me feel totally over-joyed with life and both involve transformations. One of them is the transformation that happens when we do home makeovers for living or selling AND the momentum that we created continues throughout the home. The other is coaching PRES graduates after they take the PRES 5 day staging and redesign course to continue building on that momentum.

During one of my last PRES courses we transformed the rooms we agreed to do for our client. When she came home for the ‘reveal’ just like on television, she was totally overwhelmed and cried. I left her with a suggestion that she continue to do these 2 rooms that you see below. She also wanted a colour consultation and I referred Judith Lowe of Twiques, a PRES member to her. Well GREAT NEWS! She got the family together to clean out these last two rooms – the guest bedroom and the ‘pile up’ room. They sorted into piles of what they wanted to keep, throw out, sell and give away! AND, she had her colour consultation with a painter on his way to totally complete this home transformation!

I don’t have any ‘After’ photos but I know these rooms don’t look like this anymore and that is such a good thing! PRES stagers and redesigners are simply AMAZING CHANGE AGENTS!

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.
