See Why the Home Staging Resource is the Best Stager Certification
About Us - Stager Certification at It's Best
The Home Staging Resource (HSR) was launched in July of 2006 by Audra Slinkey who is the creator and President of the HSR Training.
Audra started the 21-Day, HSR Certification training after being a home stager with her sister, Corrine (who is still a home stager and designer). Audra created the HSR stager certification training because there was no training at the time that taught the business side of home staging or gave home stagers the forms and tools for success.
In 2022 alone, Audra has been recognized for several awards by the Real Estate Staging Association.
Pioneering Online, Mixed-Media Stager Certification
Since most people back in 2006 had never even heard of the term "home staging" there was no Yellow Page category for it and the only way a home stager could market themselves credibly would be online. Audra's background was Internet marketing and online training to Fortune 500 companies, so she knew A LOT about getting seen and appearing credible online! As an expert at staging, design, color and internet marketing, the combination serves HSR graduates well and is the reason why she has the highest success rate of students! The majority of the RESA award winning stagers are HSR Grads.

This training is incredibly comprehensive. She covers just about every situation you can think of and I've been able to really hone on my ideal clientele. Though I already had a working organizing business, I WISH I had had help like this when I got started!
