Realtors Love Working with PRES Stagers!

PRES Staging & Redesign Training was taking place in Victoria last week and as part of the course we do makeovers in 2 real client’s homes. Through networking with a fellow Active Rain member, Fred Carver a realtor with Re/Max Camosun/Oak Bay, he found 2 homes for us!

The PRES Staging Resource Centre does not charge for the work we do in a training home, but we ask that the realtor or the client makes a donation to their favourite charity. It’s a WIN-WIN situation for all concerned.

One of the challenges with one of the homes was the home owner’s bedroom – it had SAMURAI SWORDS and other deadly weapons in it! Not so good for staging! The living room was clearly not been utilized as a living room so that took some creative work from the PRES team. The rooms we did were totally transformed and the home owners still have a bit of cleaning up and decluttering to do.

Colleen McClure
Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
