Redesigned Training Homes – Client is speechless!

During the PRES 5 day staging & redesign course we do our ‘hands-on’ practicum in real client’s homes. Some definitely are ‘show homes’ and some are just wonderful, everyday family homes. We do both home makeovers for selling (staging) and home makeovers for living (redesign). Both are home transformations that often leave our clients SPEECHLESS!!!

This is a testimonial from a home we did this week:

“I was really excited for Dana and her students to come to my home. I am having company for Xmas and I really wanted my home to look its best. When I came home for the reveal I was (almost) speechless. I could hardly recognize this as my home. The transformation was absolutely amazing. I couldn’t believe they just used my things and made such a beautiful home for me and my family in just one day. My husband thought I had bought new furniture but when he realized it was just the creative work we had done he said WOW! He thinks you are the best!”

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.
