Realtors are looking for Certified PRES Home Stagers!

The home staging business is thriving! Realtors and home owners are impressed with the PRES Graduates who have completed our 5 Day Signature Certified Home Staging + Redesign course. Home staging is now seen as a necessity – in fact there are many realtors who will not accept a client if they do not use their home staging experts!

Our next PRES 5 Day Certified course is happening on June 9 – 13 and we only have a few spots left! Many of the PRES graduates have built very successful businesses and continue to expand each year. One of the differences between PRES and other home staging schools is that we teach BOTH home staging and redesign in the same course. Other schools require that you take two separate courses and pay for two separate courses!

Our Signature 5 day hands-on professional PRES Staging & Redesign certification course is happening on June 9 – 13, 2014. You can take our online Certified PRES Home Staging & Redesign Home Study program at your own pace anywhere in the world!

Besides learning the theory behind home staging and redesign we take you into real client’s homes to do the actual hands-on training! This is where you start your Portfolio of great ‘Before and After’ photos. Then we spend a full day in each home where you get to practice our 10 Step Secret Formula for staging and redesigning any room! You receive a 200+ page manual that is updated on a regular basis and you learn how to run your business. We spend a full day on marketing and starting up your business.

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!
