PRES Stagers Helping Other PRES Stagers!

We had an unusually large class for the November PRES staging and redesign course so, as the instructor, I knew I needed a really large property to use for training purposes. We had a fantastic training home for the home makeover redesign for living, but needed something large for our staging practicum.

Coming to the rescue was Lois North of Lois Interiors! She had met a realtor at her BNI and ‘talked him into’ letting the PRES students come and restage a listing he had that was not moving. Lois graciously offered her fabulous inventory and WOW the homeowner was ecstatic. This property has been on the market for quite awhile with very little interest. The new photos have gone up on the MLS listing now and the home looks fantastic.

Home Owner’s Testimonial: – Ann of West Vancouver, BC

“Our home now looks amazing after the staging ‘magic’ was done. Having our home staged after having been on the market for such a long time has breathed new life into it. There is more interest in our home and it looks fabulous. I’m proud and excited to have the realtor show our ‘renewed’ home to prospective buyers.

PS. The only thing I might add is what a pleasure it was to meet the students and their instructor, how professional they were and how much I enjoyed their enthusiasm at the reveal.”
and from Lois North:
“ Just a quick note to let you know how thrilled the home owner is with the work your PRES Staging class did in their home – they truly appreciate all the effort and think it’s beautiful.

Appreciation also comes from me and the great job done by the class. Interesting for me to see my inventory used in different ways – through fresh eyes. Thank you to all for a job well done.

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.
