Thank you Audra for truly covering every aspect of starting a new business. I went into this training nervous, confused, and with a very blurred idea of what home staging is. Now, just by following the detailed steps of the training, I have a full company that I am CONFIDENT about and I'm so excited and ready to make homes beautiful! I was happy to discover that not only does Audra cover home staging, but she also provides more business ideas for you to get involved with and make extra money! This industry is full of opportunity once you jump on in! I feel like I chiseled off the first 2 years of trial and error for a startup business and I no longer see any room for failure. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Trust the process people, this gal knows what shes doing!
I just completed my training! I must say, this training was very informative, very information packed, and very helpful. You would be hard pressed to find a comprehensive step by step guide to setting up your own business anywhere like this! Guys, this is your business wrapped in a bow! Can't get any simpler than that! Thank you Audra 1000 times over!
Audra has sincere passion and dedication to the staging industry as demonstrated through her training. I chose to embark on this journey with Audra as a trainer because I like her realist approach to business, her positive attitude, and attention to detail in her training materials. Education and learning is a necessity for me as I am curious by nature. Audra far exceeded my expectations as I learned more through her course then I could have anticipated. Thank you, Audra.
I have to admit, at first I was skeptical to do an online training versus a live training...boy was I wrong for ever doubting that. The amount of material that I obtained through Audra's online training was remarkable!! The added bonus is that I have all the information and training tools readily available at my disposal. The team was very helpful when I had questions. I highly recommend getting a website, best decision besides making the decision to go with Audra for my training!
Audra, you hit a home run with this training course! I found it extremely easy to follow and work into a very hectic schedule. As a 30+ year realtor who works closely with all my clients in preparation for their home sell, I discovered there many other services I can now offer before and after the selling process. Thank you Audra, I look forward to following you and your fabulous group of Stagers & Redesigners.
I have absolutely loved the CCE course. I have learned a tremendous amount of information about choosing paint colors that will greatly enhance my business as a designer/stager. Thank you so very much Audra!!
I have always been crazy about color and considered myself having a great eye for it. But never understanding the "how's & why's" created anxiety behind my "fake-it 'till you make-it" attitude when helping clients with paint colors. I have worked in the design industry for 20 plus years in different capacities and wish that I had this material earlier in my carrier. Audra's course has turned on light-bulbs for me and given me a renewed excitement and confidence that I truly didn't expect. Thank you Audra...I got'a go paint stuff!
Audra Slinkey and Home Staging Resource provide the most extensive tools, resources, and training to successfully start your business in staging/redesign and more. While some say that staging can be done by anyone, with HSR training and the materials provided, HSR Certified Stagers/Redesigners become the professional experts in this field.
I have to say this training is one of the best I've seen associated to the Home Staging industry. It is extremely thorough and provides step by step processes to set one up for success. The additional support on marketing is unmatched. Having the visuals ready to go for us and research available and cited saves so much time. The premium website package is FANTASTIC and definitely worth every penny!
I love ALL of Audra's trainings. She keeps the modules short so I can pace myself and she provides loads of handouts and other documents for me to use in my business. I really feel my success is her success and she is invested, not just out to add to her numbers. I always recommend HSR when asked about staging training and now I can add CCE too!
HSR gave me much more information than I could have dreamed. I have owned several businesses and have had to start them up from the ground, which takes several months to implement systems and a lot of trial and error. HSR has already done the trial and error and allows me to implement systems and data immediately What a time saver! It also gives me the confidence from knowledge learned to implement my business immediately.
The Color Expert Training has provided me not only with with so much knowledge, but has given me the confidence and tools to be able to successfully up my home staging business. Without a doubt, I would totally recommend Audra! :)
As an interior design and real estate agent I came to this training with a fairly solid background and understanding of home staging, but Audra was able to help me put my business together in such a professional manner. She is extremely detailed in her experience with not only design, but with best business practices and marketing. Her wealth of information is something that I am sure I will be reflecting back on in the months to come. Thank you, Audra for helping me put my best foot forward in this new venture.
As I've begun building my business, Beautifying Spaces LLC, a critical component was laying a foundation of education. I thoroughly researched staging training and decided on HSR. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made, far exceeding even my highest expectations in Audra's unmatched expertise, beyond comprehensive training materials and support network There is absolutely nothing like it and I believe it has made the difference between endless cold calling and confident, educated, state of the art staging and marketing! Thank you doesn't even come close to expressing my gratitude to Audra and HSR!
Going through the HSR certification training has been a total game changer. I have gained so much knowledge, not just about staging but how to run your business. The staging part I had down pat. However, I know now that my business would have suffered on the marketing (web design, presentations, bold, etc) end had it not been for HSR.
HSR Training with Audra was incredibly helpful and insightful. I had already started my business and received previous training but the first training I took was dated and disappointing (kind of like so many houses before staging!). I struggled for a while and then I found HSR training and it was amazing. It answered so many questions and taught me so much of what I use today. My business is growing, thanks to Audra and her wonderful training.
Just finished the HSR E-Design course and some of the Design Files videos... MIND BLOWN!... SPEECHLESS! This is going to be a game changer for me and my design projects. For years, I have been creating these boards in photoshop, then turning them into pdfs, then manually creating links to the products. I just finished a design project that took me 6 hours to complete, I could have done it within an hour with Design Files! Audras Class sets you up with all your marketing and branding needs, you don't have to spend days writing copy and branding yourself. I will be able to have this up on my website in no time. Worth every single penny (her design boards alone are worth the price) and than some :)
This is my third HSR training course. Like the other two courses (Color Expert and Staging & Redesign) it is extremely comprehensive. Packed with information on every aspect of E-Design from how to create e-boards through to how to market my business online. Audra even includes the files needed to create a fabulous E-Design web page. In addition to the training, Audra shares access to 75+ of her pre-designed e-board templates. These offer a great starting point for customizing E-Designs for my clients, saving me hours of work and enabling me to hit the ground running with my E-Design business.
Many thanks again to Audra for another excellent course!
I can not say enough good things about this training. I know a lot of people say that and it's so very true. Can't even imagine how many hours Audra has put into this EXCELLENT training. Definitely worth the price! I would have NEVER had the confidence before to make my dream come true. Now I can honestly say I do and more than I ever thought I could. Thanks Audra for this AWESOME training and the confidence to be able to follow my dream.
Audra's program is fully extensive, with a plethora of real-life examples to learn from. She doesn't hold back on any industry secrets and really shows examples of great staging and explains road blocks, and pitfalls to avoid. She really covers everything and makes it fun and easy to follow.
The HSR training has been phenomenal! The thorough and easy-to-follow videos, readings, and handouts have helped me feel very prepared to launch my staging and redesign business, even with very little prior staging/styling background. Well worth it!
When it comes to home staging training Audra is the best! She has enabled me, coached me and given me the confidence to jump into the world of home staging.
Not only was the course both fun and challenging but Audra’s enthusiasm and knowledge in the field of design/business adds a value that can’t be measured. She has a calm, fun and logical method of teaching that truly connected and inspired me. I can’t speak highly enough of this course. Thank you, Audra!!
I've been staging properties for the last 3 years and have always wanted to go deeper in this business. Until now, I didn't feel I had enough training to turn my love of redesign into a real business. HSR has given me the training, the forms and the confidence to move forward. I can't wait to see what is ahead!
I just completed the HSR training which is by far the best certification program out there!!! I researched a lot of the staging training companies, and you will not receive all of the knowledge that Audra shares in any other program. You get so much information and resources that it is mind blowing. I can't wait to get my business up and running!!
I cannot believe how organized this course is, or how gently it led me through the intimidating process of turning my love of color into a career. Its orderly style gave me a complex set of skills in a clear, step-by-step format that is a remarkably simple. I now feel genuinely comfortable calling myself a certified color expert and feel well equipped to launch a successful business on every front!
The HSR training was phenomenal. Audra really went above and beyond with the training, guides, design modules and supporting documentation. The information she's provided has made this business turn-key. Also by using videos and walking us through critiques, real life situations, and examples, I was able to develop confidence in taking on this new chapter in my life. I can't wait to get my first staging job!
I have been in the home staging industry for almost 10 years and until recently I didn't think having formal training was necessary. Audra provided me with invaluable advice in terms of marketing strategies and alternative revenue streams! I cannot wait to implement what I've learned and grow my business! Thank You Home Staging Resource!
