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
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.
