RESA METRO VANCOUVER helping create a better place for women…

The local RESA meeting earlier this week was hosted by Dawn Rockhill of The Staging Goddess. About 15 interested home stagers from all different associations got together to work towards the common goal of creating the local Metro Vancouver chapter.

Heather Kleim of Epic Empire Designs invited Louise Edwards known as the ‘Godmother of the Downtown Eastside’ to see what we could do as a group to transform the living space for about 30 women of Sereena House. The home is badly in need of furniture, stove and other things.

The response was fantastic and the next steps will be to get a list from Louise and her contact Sarah, as to what they need so we can provide that to them. If you want to follow us in our journey check out Meet Up – Metro Vancouver RESA.

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!
