People are Raving About Audra's Training


With over 30 years experience in the decorating/design field, I didn’t think I would get that much from the training. A friend convinced me to take the course just to see if we were missing something. I was certainly surprised at all the information available, I learned plenty! What is fantastic is all the resources and forms available to use. It was very helpful to for us to start offering staging in our business. Thanks, Audra!

Lynn Ricci Staged to Sell

The training provided by HSR & Audra is top notch. The program is loaded with value providing materials and a step by step plan in design and how to start and operate your business. This training really is from A-Z

Jess Cassity Coastal Homes

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!

Jessice Lynn Smith Spotlight Staging & Design

I really did my research when I was looking for a certification course. The training and materials I received from HSR is invaluable! Audra has shared so much hands-on information that I feel confident stepping out into the staging world knowing that I am 100% prepared. I would recommend HSR to anyone looking to break into the staging industry.


Audra's course has been beyond amazing. She provides you with so much information to get started on your staging business, and provides other avenues to make money as well. This is a three week course that took me 5 weeks to complete because it is packed with so much helpful information. I wanted to soak it all in. I initially did not know where to start with my business, but Audra paved the path. It does not stop with home staging either. She provides form templates to use and make your own. She also provides abundant resources for your to continue to use with your staging business. This course is a MUST for any home stager looking to be successful!

Monica Avalos Simply Staged

The HSR training encompassed everything necessary for an upstart staging business. From process to branding to interpersonal skills to design fundamentals, Audra covers it all. The information is delivered in an organized and engaging manner that invites you to return to the resources easily and often, allowing you to create your personal strategy with Audra's expertise and guidance.

Lizabeth Burke-Hauser Haus n Home

I think your training is fabulous! You cover a lot of practical detail and make it very enjoyable to learn. The amount of templates you have created to give us a jump start is above and beyond and truly the key to helping us make a success of this new offering. While I have been a Stager and designer since 2006, and have designed a few STRs along the way, I still learned a great deal! There is something for everyone at all levels. This is a new focus for me, and there's a lot to learn if you want to do it right and provide maximum value to clients. The information, processes, templates and the ability to network with others in this specialty are going to provide enormous value to my business. I'm so glad I signed up. Thank you for putting this training together for us!

Victoria Guillott

I have taken every one of Audra's training programs. When she launched her Vacation Rental Design Expert training, I attended the free webinar to see if "I needed it", having already took another training course a few years ago from someone else. That training doesn't even come close to the insights and resources Audra provides in her training. I learned about short-term rental terms so that I can converse with investors and hosts from an educated perspective, their perspective. I learned about design, pricing, and marketing. She also provided countless resources and ideas. If I'm not successful in the Short-term Rental Design business, it isn't because her training fell short, it is because I didn't implement her training. I highly recommend Audra's Vacation Rental Design Expert Training to anyone who wants to break into this market.

Kelly DeTommaso

The HSR Training allows me to bring my passion to life! I have always had a sweet tooth for staging & design.

The HSR tools & resources are invaluable. I feel as though I have the step by step process to set up a successful business. This allows me to become the Spiritual Farmer to pour myself back into my family, my clients & my community. I love positively impacting people's lives & this allows me to fuel my creative juices.

Audra is brilliant & beautiful! Thank you for your sharing your talents & expertise with me! Grateful to be apart of the HSR Community. Creative Souls Unite!

Jenny Fike

Audra always talks about finding your people in relation to the clients you work for, the vendors you work with and even the trainers you watch and learn from. After looking at a couple of other staging programs, I watched Audra's introductory video and knew I had found my person. The training was presented in a way that was easy to understand and everything was provided, which I couldn't believe. There's no guess work or confusion and the material is exactly what I needed. I'm so glad I chose Home Staging Resources!

Michelle Murray Southern Diva Designs

HSR is the most comprehensive staging training I have come across. The ability to go at your own pace combined with the most detailed training sets anyone up for success. I feel extremely prepared to take my business to the next level.

I am thrilled that I have found this community and decided to bet on myself. Thank you Audra!!

Kimberly Curry KC Staging+Design

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!

Cheryl Wnek Beautifying Spaces LLC

I researched a lot of home staging training programs before I decided on HSR. Initially, I started my training with a cheap alternative, and unfortunately, you get what you pay for. Round two, I took my time and weighed the pros and cons of several programs. I'm glad I went with Audra's. It was the redesign component along with Audra's personality that were my eventual reasons for choosing HSR. You get a tremendous amount of value and it's nicely balanced with reading material and videos.

Nicole Nenninger Beach Rose Designs

Audra Slinkey and the HSR training has been outstanding! I searched many staging training companies before deciding on this one and I know without a doubt, I found the best! I have been a stager for 8 years, but never had the confidence to take my business to the next level until going through this training. EVERY element of training you need, and more, are found in Audra's training! She is thorough, organized, concise and genuine! She truly wants you to succeed and makes sure you have all the tools to do so. She is also very involved and makes you feel like a friend and not just another student! I would highly recommend her training to anyone thinking about joining the staging industry!

Tamra Toney Pfeifer

I started my business as a Professional Organizer in 2018. I knew that I wanted to grow my business, but I was lacking in the resources of branding and marketing myself. Taking this training, I'm not going to lie, it has been very overwhelming for me. It felt like I was being stretched like a rubber band. On top of that I am not tech savvy. Double whammy!! Above all I am grateful and blessed. I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Audra for the work that she has done in helping me overcome my fears and doubts. Because of this training not only have I gained confidence in myself, I also feel I gained a friend in Audra.

Tania M. Woods Livable Spaces

Excellent & informative training, very easy to follow. The library of forms are very helpful to get your business up and running right away.

Christina Alvarado Styled by Staging

I did a lot of free webinars with different staging instructors/mentors prior to signing up with Audra. I felt she had the best learning connection for me. The training was absolutely phenomenal. We had already created our business 2 years before signing up for the HSR training and I wished I had completed it earlier because of the amount of information I learned. I would recommend HSR to anyone thinking of entering the staging industry. A wealth of information. Thank you Audra!

Ronda Staloch Make It or Break It, LLP

This training has thoroughly prepared me to start my own home staging and redesign business. The business training was exceptional and I know the marketing tips I learned will be of great benefit to this shy, introverted gal. I look forward to finally pursuing my life long dream of helping other through my love of staging and redesign.

Jessica Vega Greenberry Hill Interiors

I really loved Audra's training, as it was not just all book knowledge but very hands-on and visual with lots of sample materials for marketing a new business.

Elizabeth Craven

I was so nervous about taking this leap. Audra's training course has made me feel very confident in my choice. The training program provides so much information from example contracts to how to shop! I can not express my gratitude for having this training available to me. Now I can start my business knowing I have found my people, am educated, and have a major support system to turn to when I need.

Samantha Gilmore Happy Porch Designs

Signing up for the Home Staging Resource's 21-Day HSR Certification Training is the best decision I made for myself and my business. The cost is justified in the amount of forms you receive alone and the videos and training materials are a huge bonus! Audra truly sets you up for success and CARES about that success. I feel prepared, knowledgeable and supported and couldn't be happier that I found Audra and the HSR community!

Ashley Elliot Ashley Elliot Design

This course was a treasure trove of valuable information, equipping me with everything I needed to confidently start my own staging and redesign business. The course materials were outstanding, featuring excellent templates and resources that made the learning process a breeze. The comprehensive training provided was truly the best I've experienced, covering all aspects of staging and redesign in a clear and engaging manner. Thanks to this course, I now feel equipped and confident to embark on my new business venture. I highly recommend this course, it's an investment that will truly propel your career forward.

Kate Kalajak

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.

Amy Beers House of Sheldon

The training and support provided by HSR are the best available in the industry. Starting your own company is hard work but Audra's program walks you through everything you need to know to get started as a home stager. I received my first call from a potential client within hours of my ads going live.

Christina Phillips Orchid & Ivy Interiors

If you are even considering taking this course, it must mean you love home design. STOP HESITATING! I was and am still blown away by the attention to detail, the amount of useful materials, and just the pure natural skill Audra has as an instructor. Bonus: She knows all about marketing and does not skip a beat on informing you of all of the many outlets/opportunities the staging world has to offer. With her help I was able to start my licensed business, Home Buzz Staging & Redesign in beautiful Palm Springs, CA. I grew up near the Coachella Valley & have even expanded my services to my home town of Joshua Tree. I started staging in WEEK ONE of this training! I was able to go in with a ton of confidence knowing that HSR and Audra had my back. I've already been successful in this business while staging vacant, occupied, and vacation rental homes. Airbnb staging and redesign is my absolute favorite! I can't wait to explore all of the other staging avenues! Thank you, Audra!!


The HSR training was invaluable in not only helping to solidify my choice in making a huge career change, confidently, but feeling as though I have an automatic "dial-a-friend" when needed! I enjoyed the training scope of incorporating the layers of learning (reading/homework & practicing certain applications throughout/videos). Now that I have completed this certification, I will be signing up for the Color Certification & E-Design as well!


HSR and Audra were so much more than I had hoped for. The training is chock full of the most excellent information and I feel that I am more than ready to begin my staging career. If anyone is on the fence about which training to take, look no further. The tools and the knowledge that I received from HSR totally exceeded my expectations.

Paige Freeman Twenty9 Designs

I have been staging/redesigning for 20 plus years, Audra, your program/training has really fine tuned my business. I have been a little "accidental" because when you love what you do, and people love what you do, business comes without much effort. With the business plan, Black Book, marketing and numerous other checklist my business has become much more streamline, not to mention a greater bottom line.

Connie D Kautz Style.Show.Sold

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!

Brooke Craig Brooke Craig Interiors

I had always wanted to branch out and do a home staging service. When we had to shelter in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I decided I would use that time to grind out the training and start my business after years of just dreaming about it. The training was definitely worth the cost. Not only did Audra go over all thing staging, she helped me build my business from nothing. The training was easy to follow and kept me engaged with the fun before and after photos and numerous design videos. This certification can be compared to buying into a franchise without all the rules. She gives you all the material you need but encourages you to use it in your own way. I can't recommend this training enough.


When I was looking through the different Home Staging Courses available online, Home Staging Resource stood out the most for the abundance of information it had to offer. With a degree in Interior Design I wasn't looking to spend my money on a course that would " teach me how to match pillows to wall colors ".

This course has been way more than I could have imagined , there was no stone left unturned . Not only did I finish this course without any questions unanswered, I also walked out with a complete How-To Manuel on starting and running a successful Home Staging Business.

I am so Happy I found this Course , It has been everything I didn't know I needed !

Klaudia Jakowska

This training was wonderful! All of the videos, handouts, and e-books were very helpful. It was well organized, fun, easy to follow and highly engaging. I really enjoyed watching the staging videos and getting to see how the concepts I was learning about were put into action. Thank you, Audra!

Nina Marie Sartorelli Nina Lin Interiors

I am so grateful for the information contained in the Home Staging Resource training. I have taken other staging courses and college level design courses that have not given me the amount of information that Audra has included.

Cassandra Fulks Desert Decor Interiors

This training has been amazing. Everything you could think of wanting to learn in this industry is provided for you. I love that Audra's main mantra is that there is nothing new under the sun so don't reinvent the wheel but be creative. She provides you with forms, sell sheets, example contracts, verbiage to use, everything! This is a lot of information to process but it's so worth it and I feel 10 times more confident starting this business because I have these resources available to me and the training under my belt.

Jessica Puleo Spaces Reimagined

During quarantine, my husband and I were on a walk listening to Steve Harvey's JUMP talk on YouTube. I decided to jump. Signed up for the HSR course, designed a logo, spent my days and evenings between my work for my current job and raising kids to complete the certification which was so much fun because you're soaking it all in and loving the information!! It literally took a few weeks and I'm almost completely ready to launch a new career in Home Staging and Interior Styling!! I mean, where else can you become certified and have ALL the information and guidance you need to start your DREAM JOB?!?! This training has been amazing and well worth the time and money (which still isn't much for what you get)! Thank you Audra!

Jackie J. Low Stage The Vibe

This training has been truly amazing. I have spent many years helping other start their business in the real estate industry and I began to notice that the ones who didn't start with the cornerstones to build their business are the ones that struggles to succeed. This training did just that! It helped me design my business to represent me while also giving me the direction on how to get the ball rolling the right direction and keep the momentum going.

Kirsten Stier Argyle Design Co.

Thank you Audra, this course was beyond my expectations. It was slow going for me at first because of how much information was provided, once I got use to the style and organization of the website, I'm so appreciative of all the forms and the videos you shared. All of the THE MARKETING SECTION, cannot say enough about this aspect of your training. These are all questions I had when I started the program, "how am I going to market?" You answered every question before I could even ask it!


The HSR training manual and Audra's material have been the ideal guide to starting my own Home Staging and Redesign company. I love how you can take the training at your own speed and also have the option to review it as many times as you like. The Stager's connect Forum is awesome, and just adds to the learning experience. So glad to be part of this community and have the support of Audra herself. Thank you so much HSR.

Michelle Collins Elleco Interiors

The training I received from HSR helped me bring all of the concepts of a running a business in interior design/staging all together. In the past, I struggled with how much to charge the client and ended up giving so many hours away. I really like the semi concrete pricing and structure regarding hourly rates and half day room redesigns etc. I also learned so much regarding where to shop, how to charge on wholesale items. Audra's training is really compacted with great information that is essential to starting a business in staging or redesign.

Lori Bartone

I have been so impressed with the amount of information and resources provided in this training. am armed with business forms, marketing materials and overall industry knowledge that is invaluable. Launching a new business at first seemed so daunting to me, but now I am educated and prepared to grow my staging business - and take it beyond my initial vision.

I would absolutely recommend this program to others considering this industry. You won't regret it!

Lauren Taylor Haven + Hue Studio

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!

Cathy Di Leo Di Leo Design & Staging

As a Real Estate Broker Associate, I sometimes get homes to put on the market that need a little bit of help being presentable. I have two bins of quick decorations that I replace with some of their decorations. I never charged them for it as long as I had the listing. Lately its been more like putting a table, staging the kitchen and the bathrooms and that all costs money. I decided to look into Home staging Resources and loved all the knowledge and ideas that were in the program. My mindset now is to work my staging business as a BUSINESS and not be so generous in supplying everything for free.

Ana Martinez

Audra's training is the most in-depth course I've even taken. Every single part of the business is covered, not just design. I originally bought this class because I love design and wanted information on decorating my own home. Now I can see the benefit and joy that can be had in starting my own business. I wish I had found this course 15 years ago.

Michelle Muse

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.

Melinda Mack Melinda Mack Interiors

I have years of experience designing and staging, very successfully. I was torn about whether I needed to be certified and asked around. I kept going to Audra's special events and was drawn to this course, finally deciding more knowledge is more power. Best decision ever!! The promo materials and handouts alone are worth the price of the class. They are beautiful. I have learned so much I thought I knew, and motivated beyond! Audra is a phenomenal educator, teaching in such a way that you feel like it's live. Amazing. If you are thinking about it, do it!

Peg Lessard

My degree is in nursing. When I was a little kid, I knew I wanted to help others. I had been saying for two years that I was not equipped or qualified to be staging homes for my husbands real estate business yet I was doing it and helping families. HSR gave me the confidence I needed to step into homes and feel like I belonged there with a purpose. It really simplified the process while giving me the tools I need for successful consultations and a plan to help others. I started this class the week our state was shut down in the middle of a pandemic. I have been busier than ever!! Audra's webinars gave me additional tools for virtual consultations and I haven't looked back. Thank you Audra!

Lindsay Noll Noll Team Interiors

It took me a long time to make the decision that I wanted to seriously pursue home staging as a career (after my corporate job was eliminated due to COVID). I had never allowed myself to dream that I could have a job doing something I've loved doing all of my life as a hobby and get paid for it! COVID forced me to reassess what the next chapter looks like. I found the course to be incredibly thorough and on point. I just met with my local RESA chapter for the first time, and found the talking points to be 100% consistent with what Audra teaches, even though many of those in attendance had not gone through this course. So I was even more confident that the training I have received in this course was valuable and credible. I'm alternatively scared and excited about launching my business, but I know a LOT more than I did when I started the course, and know that these resources will continue to support me as I begin to help clients and hopefully expand my business. Thanks, Audra!


I loved the journey and when it did get very overwhelming for me, I just took a break while balancing two part time jobs and once I got back into it with a fresh mind, I was able to process a lot more fluidly. I love all the information that is given and very clear. I am so thankful for the sheets made for us basically making it easier to start the business. This program really gave me a jump start!

Lydia Barbarian

I've been telling friends, "I wish my college professors had set me up for success as much as Audra has provided in this course." And it's absolutely true. The hours you'd spend on creating forms alone is worth it! Add in all the support, videos, and 24/7 access so you can work when it's convenient for you. I've been making this my midlife passion project, so I'm not in a hurry so much as using all this info to cultivate a business that will grow with me as I grow older. I'm truly grateful and will continue to be a member of HSR to continue to have access to all this valuable info and support.

Amy Ehret Centered Staging

I have always enjoyed design and styling but I never knew I could make it into a business until I found HSR! My first encounter was during a Happy Hour session during COVID-19 and from that moment on I was sold. I had looked around and found other Home Staging Training companies but Audra and HSR spoke to my love of detail and processes. The training was fabulous and I now have a step-by-step handbook for my business. Thank you HSR!

Erika Junck Easy Made Homes

Before taking the HSR course, I never even knew E-Design existed. Often times, I would try to piece together some sort of an idea board using Publisher or another software, but I could never achieve a clean, well designed board. After taking Audra's E-Design course, it has been a true game changer for my business, and I believe I've only touched the tip of the iceberg. So excited to find new ways of incorporating E-Design into my staging business!


I have been in a corporate Director level of visual merchandising and design for over 25 years, therefore I contemplated that I even needed this certification.... But I am glad I did. The classes focus heavily on building a staging BUSINESS which I found extremely helpful! Audra also provides a TON of forms so I don't have to spend weeks doing this, I can get started right away! So glad I did this. LOVE IT! Thank you!

Addie Ashworth Ashworth Staging + Design

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.

Andrea McAtee McAtee Staging & Redesign

I found the HSR training to be incredible. The fact that you can do it at your own pace and go back and re-read and re-watch videos was really helpful for my busy life. I loved how detailed Audra got about both the business side of things and the creative. I also love the community aspect of the HSR group! This training was so comprehensive that even though I have no experience, I feel completely ready to begin my new career as a home stager and redesigner. Thank you!

Gabriella Risatti

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!!

Karen Gonyea Karen Jean Design

Thank you for your great training! I feel equipped to begin my new journey as an entrepreneur in the home staging realm. Thanks to my great business partner and her real estate investor contacts we already have our first job, a $2M new home vacant staging project, and our business hasn’t even officially launched yet!

Most of all, I am thrilled that as we gain practical experience this year, we’ll continue to have access to all your great education, plus live webinars and the valuable Stagers Connect community of experts in the field to continue training our eye and honing our skills.

From day one, I’ve enjoyed your calm, relatable, belief building personality via video and live webinars, and greatly appreciate the in-depth knowledge you’ve shared to effectively market our business. I can’t wait to meet you in person some day soon hopefully at a future conference.

Jill Wedding Perennial Home Design

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.

Sherry Carwile Modern Design Home Staging/Styling

I have taken other HSR courses in the past (Staging & Redesign, Certified Color Expert, Certified Expert E-Designer), and I immediately signed up for the vacation rental training when it was offered. It packed in so much information, including eye-opening statistics on the increasing popularity of vacation rentals, how to research for proper pricing, information on what vacationers want in a rental, understanding the problems that property owners and managers are looking to solve, and how to promote my specialty training with ready-to-use emails and Canva marketing materials. Vacation rentals are everywhere in my state, and now I feel very prepared to tap into that market!

Debra Garvin

I cannot begin to say just how much I have learned or enjoyed Audra's HSR course. I have been blown away by the amount of information that was provided. Finishing the course has left me excited to start my business with confidence...because I feel I now have so much knowledge and will be able to not only speak intelligently on all things home staging related, but will be able to effectively price my services as well. There is no doubt I'll be referring back to so many items, forms and lessons as they are priceless to starting this business. Thank you Audra from the bottom of my heart for sharing your knowledge and for being so motivating!


WOW! This training was PACKED with info. It would have taken me well over a year and lots of mistakes along the way to get where I am today without Audra's help. I am forever grateful for all the work that has been put into this curriculum and would highly recommend this training to anyone interested in this field of work.

Ragan Schlappi CEG Home Interiors

The best decision I made when starting Inhabit Home Staging was training through HSR! Audra in meticulous in sharing her hard-won experience and skill with you so you are more than prepared when you complete her training. Starting your own business is brave because there are so many factors and unknowns, but her training literally provides e v e r y t h i n g ...including the kitchen sink! Yes, I eat, sleep, and drink all things "home", but business best practices and requirements? Not so much! I feel so confident that I have a solid foundation because of this course, could not have done it without her. Thank you, Audra, for sharing all your hard work and expertise so others can confidently succeed in this industry! You are an exceptional and generous mentor!

Mary Smoczynski Inhabit Home Staging

It took me several months before deciding on which home staging training program to purchase. After attending two of Audra's webinars and seeing how detailed and personable she is, I was sure she truly cares about her students, and I was right. In view of the HSR webinars and other social media research; I expected detailed, and informative training from Audra, however, the training manual, videos, and personal replies from Audra to my email questions were well beyond my expectations. The HSR training well prepared me for a career in home staging plus additional expertise. I am looking forward to taking the HSR E-Design and Color Consultation training next! Thank you Audra!!


Audra's training manual and detailed videos have been so helpful. Being a RE Broker and understanding all of the details that go into a successful stage when helping my clients the most value for their properties is absolutely the most important detail. Audra is so hands on! she is always available for any questions and answers her emails! I have already recommended her to another agent!

Andrea Michelle Puller Greater Seattle Home Staging

I first came into home staging when I put my own home for sale that we had lived in for 20 yrs. Our realtor had seen the before and after and went bazooka over the transformation. I had been thinking of it for some time, but he gave me the confidence to go ahead. I found HSR through a local stager who had staged a home that I saw while looking for a new home. (The staging profession was calling me). I am not new to art and design, but the HSR program was so incredibly integral in my learning about the BUSINESS of staging. I couldn't have formed this immediate business so quickly without it. Just while I was DOING the certification, I had earned over $10,000 in 5 months. That was without even marketing, but just casually mentioning it to people I know that I was doing Home Staging certification, I was given staging consults and office redesign projects. Now I am a staging partner with our realtor, a partner with another stager who has a furniture warehouse and have been staging 1M+ homes! Thank you Audra!

Debra Gregg Deborah Gregg Interiors + Staging

I was new to Home Staging and knew nothing about the industry. After researching different training programs available on the market, I am so glad to have selected this program.

The Home Staging Resource program is the ONLY program to choose for anyone considering a career in Home Staging and Redesign. This course eliminated all the guesswork about Home Staging and provided me with the tools needed to kick start my business. I received so many tools, industry connections, trade discounts, ideas for service offerings, business plans, trends, "how-to" knowledge for staging, software tool ideas, website, social media automation platform, and good customer support. WOW!

Not only is the online training self-paced and easy to navigate, but Audra's energy kept me engaged. There is a lot of content to learn and appreciated the way the information was divided into smaller modules making it easy for me to digest.

And the buck doesn't stop there because I am now part of an industry support community where I can learn and grow my business. Thank you for creating a program that provides so much value!

Again, WOW!

Thank you so much!!!

Anna Chargin Anna Chargin Interiors

I loved the training! I loved the level of detail and information Audra shared with us. I love that it feels we are partners in this together. Great experience!

Elizabeth Medina Ross CAME Designs

Audra is an incredible Home Staging & Redesign instructor. I have been in real estate for over 12 years and wanted to get certified in Home Staging so that I could provide an additional home staging or redesign service for my clients. This class was absolutely amazing! I learned so much about how furniture and decor should be placed in a room to make it look gorgeous. Additionally, there is so much of the business side that I did not know about, which was explained is such great depth. Thank you Audra!

Wow, this training was everything I could have needed and more! I knew without a doubt that this was the career for me but I had no idea how to make it happen. I found the HSR website and I signed up for the free live class happening the following night. The class really showed me how much I needed to take this course. I filled pages on pages in my notebook just from the 1 hour class. I knew the training would be so helpful and informative and I was right! I now feel so confident to start my own business! I can't thank the HSR team enough!


The HSR E-Design training is the best I have found. HSR provides so many templates and so many training modules. Audra does not like for anyone to reinvent the wheel, so she gives you so many resources to quickly make your business a success. The price for what you get is very reasonable. Once you complete the training that is not the end. You have these resources forever and HSR is always there for you if needed.

With a background in internet marketing, I knew going in that it would be a huge part of starting a staging and design business. Audra went above and beyond what I would have ever expected in explaining piece by piece, the steps that you need to take in order for your business to be found. I love that she didn't base her training on cold calling, spamming, or other methods that would ultimately alienate you from the real estate world. There is absolutely no reason that you won't succeed if you do every single thing she recommends to do. The design part is the fun part, but the building blocks support the whole structure of your business.

I am very thankful for Audra and her staff. If I had any questions, they were quick to respond, and the program is well laid out and full of information. It took a few months to decide as to which company to choose. I wasn’t looking to learn how to stage or design, but I did need a certificate for staging, and I felt I was weak in business skill. HSR is filled with information in staging, business knowledge and most of all confidence building. I am very happy with the results and would tell anyone this is the course to take.

Jackie Gregory

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.

Aurda's training has been a fun, motivational, and educational resource in starting my own business. Having completed the HSR Staging and Redesign Certification Course I feel like I have all the tools I need to start my own business and really thrive. The training really helped lay out the foundation to be successful! Thank You Aurda for sharing your passion and knowledge!

I enjoyed everything about the Home Staging Resource course. Audra over delivered and exceeded all my expectations. For a home program the sessions were quite robust and covered an array of topics for establishing your Home Staging business. The handbook and videos were well organized, providing you with concise tips and tricks of the trade so you can easily navigate through the staging industry. No reason to recreate the wheel, HSR provides you with all the forms, resources and knowledge so you can spend the time building your business and branding yourself.


I am impressed beyond words at the value that I received with the Home Staging Resource Certification program. I am still overwhelmed with the information provided and know that I will use the members site and the manual for a very long time! I am a full time corporate associate during the day working as a Director in the Human Resources field. It took me 3 months to finish this 3 week program, so do not think that you can't do it. I just finished my first home staging consultation a few days ago and I am now partnered with a local agent that has already booked consultation #2! I am truly excited about this program and what it has provided me to kick start my business!

Even though I have been home staging and styling for several years, I knew I had gaps in my learning. I needed to have an arsenal of marketing and business forms and an updated website to be competitive in the home staging market. I have been looking at Audra's course for some time and stalking her information packed webinars.
I took the leap and decided to invest in myself and am so glad I did! During the covid quarantine I have been busy filling my head with facts and my soul with design. I also totally redid my website which was a labor of love. I am super proud of the finished product showcasing all my work.
Your course has given me the confidence I needed to pursue my dreams.
I love that I can always refer back to the modules and you are always adding updated information for our industry as it grows and changes. I have learned so much just being in our Facebook group from a tribe of passionate and giving professionals. Thank you Audra!

I am so glad I took this course. It took me longer then expected to complete; however Audra has prepared me in more ways then I ever expected. I cannot thank her enough and can't wait to start my next class with her!


I really enjoyed Audra's trainings. Even though she is not in the room with you physically, it feels like it. I love how Audra knew what I was thinking before I even had certain thoughts. She is an awesome and funny teacher. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a passion for design!

Jazlyn Dent

This training has been truly amazing. I have spent many years helping other start their business in the real estate industry and I began to notice that the ones who didn't start with the cornerstones to build thier business are the ones that struggle to succeed. This training did just that! It helped me design my business to represent me while also giving me the direction on how to get the ball rolling the right direction and keep the momentum going.

Kirsten N. Stier Argyle Design Co.

I highly recommend the HSR Staging Course! There is no way I would have ever taken this step without all the know-how Audra provides, in addition to all the forms necessary. I love that the program is go at your own pace, and Audra is so relatable! Thanks so much!!

Angel Dahnke SWANK Staging & Design

I am so thankful I took Audra's course! I'm a Realtor in the Las Vegas area and staging is essential to selling a home much quicker for more money for our clients! In a very competitive market, real estate agents know and understand the importance of having the home staged! Now that I have learned the tricks and have gained more knowledge I'm ready! Next is the eDesign course! Thank you Audra!

Susan Barnhart

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!!

Cristy Smith Elan Staging & Redesign

I am a Realtor and loved staging my listing and always had a passion for design, so I decided to jump in with a partner to start a staging business. Audra's class has a wealth of knowledge and resources. I thought I knew a lot but WOW and learned so much! Thank You Home Staging Resource.

Rosalie Bishop Gem Staging & Interiors

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.

Adrienne Young Copper Key Designs

I loved this training program. I have been researching and trying to start my own business for some time on my own. I decided to take this training to give me direction on how I wanted to run my own business. There is so much information that would of taken me years to figure out. I like the fact that this training program gives you support from others in this field so you don't feel like you are on your own. I do not regret taking this training and more confident with my services I offer to build a successful business.

Sharonn A Tietsort Sharonn's Stagingand Design

I am very happy with my training with the HSR program. I've learned much more than I expected to learn through the training program, Audra has provided a wealth of knowledge; countless forms to easily edit for my business, valuable videos and pictures. I especially like the additional income learning opportunities in week 3. I'm ready to get started!
Thank you Audra,

I have been staging homes for over a year and I wish that I had taken this training sooner. I have learned so many valuable tips and advice from Audra and the veteran stagers. This training is a must for anyone wanting to learn more about the process, the marketing and the branding for you and your company.

Debbie Huggins

The Home Staging training from Home Staging Resources is thorough and very comprehensive. It provides a lot of the background information that someone would need to get started in the business plus information for some that are already in the business. It is a great course and the pace (at your own) is perfect for anyone. I highly recommend the course, and have already, to others interested in home staging.

Joanne G. Ruf Interior Design by Jo

As scary as it was to spend the money on this training, not sure of what I was getting, I can't say enough how much time, work, and resources must have gone into designing it. Audra has done an exceptional job creating a grab and go training that really will help you get your staging business launched, providing you with all of the tools and resources for you to feel confident and soar.

Christanne Gartelos

The E-Design training was inspiring and gave me incentives to update my website and marketing plans, and to consider automating my email follow ups. The HSR templates are a definite plus to not have to reinvent the wheel.


HSR Staging and Redesign Certification training by Audra Slinkey was simply amazing! Home redesign and staging has been a hobby of mine for many years, and I finally decided to follow my passion and turn it into a business. I had the confidence to do my own projects, but wanted to gain more knowledge in home staging and redesign so that I could provide my clients with the best service possible. I have a bachelor's degree in business administration and a masters degree in counseling, and I learned more in Audra's training than I did in my two degree programs combined. The training is easy to follow, practical, and incredibly useful if you want to start your own business. I am not sure I could have done this without Audra!

Sara Huard

I always wanted to get into staging for a profession. After working in corporate America for a few years, I felt emotionally drained and burnt out. Whenever I decided to start working for myself, fear would set in, and I would just let it go. One day on YouTube, I saw this video about leaving your job and going into staging. I didn’t think much of it and decided to watch it. The video was of Audra sitting in her beautiful room, discussing the benefits of staging and how the market was booming. I KNEW this was a sign. At the end of the video, she provided the information to sign up for her training. I was hesitant to start a training course for staging. I felt I was good at decorating and designing; there was nothing I couldn't just learn on my own. I was so wrong. The training has prepared me so much. I have learned all of the ins-and-outs about staging, marketing, pricing, plus more. The videos were easy to follow. It kept my attention. Audra explained everything in a way that made sense. And it seemed doable. I feel confident to take what I have learned and finally fulfill my dreams. I am so glad I invested in myself with this program. I don't think there would have been an easier way to learn the amount of stuff I have learned doing it on my own. I can not wait to see what the future holds for Beau Staging & Design, and I have to thank Audra for that. Iesha

Lesha Beaudry

I've been an interior designer for over 30 years. I wanted to add home staging to my services but had no idea how to charge for the staging. Getting my certification from HSR answered my questions as well as gave me creative marketing ideas to reenergize my existing design business.

Anita Webber Smith Webb Design Interiors

I have been overwhelmed with the wealth of information I have received through the Expert E-Designer training program. I am so excited to use what I have learned and to avail of the templates and resources shared throughout the course. I am extremely confident that all of the above will elevate my Interior Decorating and Color Consultation services, as well as the Occupied Staging services I will be offering in the near future. My clients will benefit tremendously from all this knowledge. I am also in the midst of the Certified Color Expert training program which is amazing! Thank you, Audra, for opening my eyes to the potential I always knew existed but did not quite know how to achieve!

Lisa Rozario L M Interiors

I am a stay at home mom of two little ones, and I love every moment of that. But I have been struggling with the idea of not having something that is mine; something I can build, take pride in, help my family financially with. I just felt stuck and emptied honestly.
Recently I finally decided to figure out what it was that I wanted to do, and my mind went to Staging. I have looked into it before, even almost attended another company's 3 day staging course, but it never clicked. Then I spoke with a Home Stager that had gone through HSR herself, and she recommended I attend a free webinar, and I knew then that this was the path for me.
I have loved every moment of training, and though I still feel anxious about officially having my own business, Audra's thorough and detailed classes, manual, and forms have given me confidence to jump in!
I plan to rewatch a few different lessons before my business is live, but I am so happy to have gone through this training, and I am excited for this next chapter I get to launch into!
Thank you Audra!

Tralynn Moriarty TM Homes & Redesign

I have learned a ....tremendous.... amount of useful education with Audra Slinkey and the HSR Certification Training! All of the information is written in an organized way that coordinates with the online training format. Audra details every aspect concisely, also giving you forms and formats that you can copy and paste to reuse for your own business. Who does that? I have really enjoyed opening up Audra's website each morning to dive into learning something new. Then reviewing the printed material to study by and to refresh my memory before continuing. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in staging and design!

Ellen Meier

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!

Jacqueline Tillery JST Real Estate Interiors

I am an interior decorator and wanted to add more services to my business. I took Audra's Home Staging course and learned so much. Now I am confident in my ability to stage and grow my business.

Thanks Audra!

Jennifer Tisdall Design Studio 426

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!

Ann Tristani Ann Tristani Design

I started this in-depth training during COVID 19 season. I was already "sheltering in place" but we were actually not at our home. I had been staying at our lake house which was mostly vacant with a few staged pieces while on the market to sell. Imagine that. I had a ton of time to dedicate to this and enjoyed every moment. Audra has a clear and decisive way of teaching with the tone she is simply sitting across the table talking with you over coffee. The training in so comprehensive and I honestly do not feel I am missing a thing! If you are like me when I started, you don't know what you don't know! Audra takes care of that. I am so grateful to be able to utilize the wealth of information on the members site as I will need it to refresh continually while starting this business. I learned to stage with the few pieces I had here at our lake house and while I could not get that room shot or "money shot" I know I will have it very quickly! Audra, your kindness and generosity is a blessing. Thank you.
