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 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!
