People are Raving About Audra's Training


HSR is a one stop shop educational source to help create your design business come true. You are learning, building strategies, being creative, but mostly HAVING FUN! Audra has touched on every aspect you could imagine and more. What a benefit these courses are to novices or legend in the industry that is expanding their knowledge.

Holly Slott HS Designs

A comprehensive guide not only to Home Staging, but how to run your business. This training provides ALL the tools and resources you would need to get started and do it right the first time.

Jamie Bell Harbor Home Staging

The HSR training has been an amazing and transformative experience for me. I began the training in the early days of Covid-19 quarantine with the idea of chasing my dream of transitioning to home staging and redesign when I retire from teaching down the road. The first week was intense and overwhelming but Audra's voice kept ringing in my ear.....keep the momentum going! It was a struggle at times because I was still teaching remotely. The things that kept me going were my students and the HSR training. The training kept me inspired, positive, and quite frankly, sane while quarantining at home. My dream has now turned into a reality as I take my certification test and do my first half day staging on the same day! Best timing ever! Thank you, Audra, for giving me the information, tools, direction, and hope for my new second career as a home stager and re-designer in my new business, Sonata Home Design.

Missy Noonan Sonata Home Design

Audra's training program far surpassed my expectations. She is very knowledgeable and is eager to share her expertise in her course, in her live webinars, and in her generous free videos she makes available online. I would not have had the confidence if it were not for Audra's training. I now have all the tools required and an enormous amount of knowledge and guidance to steer me in the right direction.

Susan Wentzell Home Styling by Sue

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 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

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

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

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 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

Audra does it again! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this E-Design Course!!! It was so easy to follow b/c of her enthusiasm and interesting content! Course includes everything you need to incorporate E-Design into your business: marketing materials, forms, how-to videos, web-site buttons, and more! HIGHLY recommend this program for anyone wanting to learn the most cutting edge tools that will help drive revenue and build your staging & design business! Thanks Audra!

Carolyn Plummer Carolyn Plummer Designs

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

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

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!

Leslie Berdahl 1st Stage Home Design

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

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.


When I left Real Estate, I knew I was not done with it entirely. I wanted to bring out the creative side of me, and all my Realtor friends said-you have to get into staging and redesign. When I found HSR , I knew I found my path. This has been the most fascinating journey ever. The course has so much information and resources it makes it me feel so prepared and excited for the next adventure in my life to begin.

Tonya Reish The Elegant Bee Staging and Design

This training was definitely an investment that is invaluable for building a Home Staging and Redesign business. Audra provided limitless resources and a blueprint to follow which took a lot of the guess work out of how to structure my offerings, pricing etc..., as well as provided various alternative income stream options to consider as offerings for my business. I am launching in the next couple weeks and definitely have a sense of confidence that I am more than prepared to start this new chapter of my life!

M. DeAnn Brown Legacy Keys Homes

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!

Kristen Seibold Aspire Home Design

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

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.


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

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!


I came to the HSR training program with a background of several decades in Learning & Development. As you can probably imagine, it is challenging for me to take classes of any kind (live, recorded, or virtual) without distracting thoughts of how the objectives are not clear, content isn't cohesive, or the speaker isn't engaging. I'm thrilled to say that after three intense weeks, I am thrilled with Audra's training.
The program sequence makes sense. It reminds me of walking up to a map in the middle of a theme park. It's easy to see where you've been, where you are, and where you're headed next. While I followed the sequence as is, I appreciate that I had the option to jump around.
Now that I'm certified, I go forward with confidence. I have tool box full of tools I'll use and more importantly, I know how to use them. If I have any questions or concerns going forward, I know Audra and the HSR community are there for me.
If you're considering education for staging and redesign, I researched every option out there before deciding on HSR. It is the very best and I'm proud to be part of the family. You'll be in safe hands here.

Jenny Ergle Golden Home Staging

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

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

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!

Lisa Marie Powell Upstage Your Decor

This has been the best staging course I've done! It offers everything you need without the additional cost! Well worth every cent!


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.

Amy C. Scarborough Happy Is The After

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

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!

Talin Mansourian Staging by Talin

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

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.

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

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

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!

Susan Daddono

Wow! I have learned so much about every aspect of Staging and Redesign as well as how to successfully market my business. Audra is a marketing genius, no doubt! The forms and downloads are such a bonus and the references to web-based tools are very helpful. She even offers an incredible website and training tools, E-design and Color design training. She connects you with other Stagers so you feel a part of a team. I highly recommend HSR Staging and Redesign Training.

Denise Cady Bockoven Design & Decor by Denise

Wow! There is so much information, it is well organized and was a game changer for me. As a busy business owner working to get my design services launched, having Audra's guidance and very useful staging business "in a box" was exactly what I needed!

Jessica Crosby Delight In Designs

The training provided by Audra has proved to be invaluable in building my staging and redesign business. The in depth information provided in numerous ways and that is available to be reviewed as needed is a resource which I utilize again and again. I couldn't recommend this training more highly!!


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.

Andrea Turner Decor By Redesign

Once I found Audra's training, I knew I had to take her course. I was beyond excited to finally do something for myself.

Jesika Blayne Broaddus Mrs. Broaddus Interiors

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!

Lisa Susko August Grace Interiors

As my friend and business partner discussed focusing on Home Staging, I wanted to learn about everything regarding home staging. I looked at several training options and decided on Audra's program based on the reviews, price and that I could do it online. The HSR program is great and gives way more information that I ever would've thought. You definitely get more than you pay for!

Hope Huddleston My Home Place Designs

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

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 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,
Lynda Kaspern

Lynda Kaspern

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

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 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

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

The training that I have received through Home Staging Resource and Audra has far exceeded any of my expectations that I had when I originally set out to own my own business in home staging and redesign. This course has provided me with a countless number of tools and in-depth training to succeed in my business. I will continue to use this course as resource as I build my own dream.

Christina Lee O'Dell Within These Walls, LLC

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

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

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 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!


I absolutely love Home Staging Resources' very comprehensive training. Audra has left no question unanswered about starting your business and the Home Staging industry as a whole. There are so many valuable resources that come with the training. The best part is that you can go back and forth as needed to review areas of focus and/or need clarification on. I recommend this training 100%.

Digna Olivarez Santuario Home

I have been a designer for many years but I am fairly new to staging. I have learned SO much from this program and I think it's great how Audra really pumps you up to be successful! I love the Stagers Connect where I can get to know other stagers and the successes as well as problems they have and how everyone comes together to help each other.

Teresa Holland-Gresock ARC Inc

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!


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

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 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

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

I decided to invest in myself and purchase Audra's training to properly launch my home staging & interior design business. I have my Masters in Interior Architecture and have design experience, but felt clueless and overwhelmed how to really build a business and market it for success. After attending several free webinars from Audra, I was impressed with her straight forward approach. As a SAHM it's taken me several months to get through the training, but I took her advice and kept my momentum going! I can't wait to launch my business- thanks so much!

SarahRose Henkin SarahRose Interiors Co.

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!!


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

This is the most thorough Real Estate Staging Course you will ever find out there. It is not just a course on staging it is a course on how to put a business together-from soup to nuts. Audra is the real deal.

Loida E. Lafi

This training can be a little overwhelming with SO MUCH information! Give yourself some grace and take it one step at a time. Really absorb it, and know that you always go back and refresh it over and over again with the information always being there! I'm thrilled to get started!

Angela Mae Schlagel Whimsey's Design

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

The training is so comprehensive and engaging. I wish she had been my teacher in all my college coursework. The best instructor I have ever had! Worth every penny! I feel very prepared and confident to launch a successful business. Thank you so very much for all the tips, videos, and links!

Janet M. Cadwallader Cadwallader Interiors

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.


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!!

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!

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.

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!

After retiring from my career as a school teachers and administrator, I was looking for a new pt-time career in design and eager to be trained through a solid, affordable program that encompassed design, redesign and how to get a business started.
HRS alllowed me to work at my own pace. Audra keeps it fresh and stimulating even in a pandemic with virtual happy hours and tips for e-design. I love being a member of such a supportive and encouraging group - always willing to help. Thank you!

Through the HSR training, Audra gave me not only the tools that I needed to be successful but also the confidence to know that I can do this. It is certainly a lot of work to build a business, research, network and market your brand, but the HSR training made it enjoyable! It was especially helpful to learn all of the other opportunities that can come after starting your staging business like staging Airbnbs, partnering with vendors and realtors, and offering holiday decorating services. I'm excited to get my business up and running!

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!


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!

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

What can I say Audra. You were the very first staging company that I selected when I started my staging business back in 2017 and here I am still. One of the reasons I selected you, there were many, was "hands down" all of the resources you provided. I am a resource queen myself and you totally spoke my language. Since then, I have taken your Color course and most recently E-Design. I must make a confession here, even though I absolutely love my successful vacant staging business, I am secretly having a love affair with everything color, design & redesign.

Thank you for opening up some many wonderful opportunities within this industry for so many of us and for having a huge positive impact on my life. I look forward to 2021 and seeing what is on the horizon for you and your next award winning innovation.

Warm Regards,

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 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!

Brigitte Hughes Hughes Home Staging

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!


I have enjoyed the training I have received from Audra at HSR! I have always had a love for design and redesigning spaces but her business ideas and experience with marketing has really made this an enjoyable and exciting experience for me! I enjoy the feedback and ideas shared on Stagers Connect and I look forward to being an HSR member for many years to come!

Michelle Christie Pro Home Stylist

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.


I have never been provided with so much of a helping hand, period.

This training has superseded my expectations ten,... no one-hundred fold. This program has far more information than I can obtain mentally (before "getting in there and doing it myself") and that is what makes it so amazing.

I love that Audra provides a place I can go online (her training website) to research and review information….and she doesn’t stop there! Stagers Connect is a private Facebook group for her trainees to get together and share ideas, information and so much more. In addition to this, she mails you a ~2” thick spiral bound training book for your training and reference. She provides templates for advertising, marketing, trainings and even websites. Her tips, tricks and ideas are boundless and her devotion to her trainees and this field are inspirational. I couldn’t have created this business without her. I am graciously thankful.

Being a Home Stager for 17 years I wanted to add this designation to my business. I was completely amazed at the forms, useful tools, and wealth of information this course provided. If this course had been around 17 years ago, it would have made a world of difference in every way.

Susan Campbell Abracadabra Home Staging

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

Finding Audra, and going through the HSR training, has instilled confidence, experience and belief in my own abilities as a successful home stager. Before the training, I thought the home staging industry was beyond me. HSR training is relatable, as well as comprehensive. The education I received is key to my ongoing success. The training is self-paced, therefore achievable while being hands-on in the industry. I credit my success to Audra and HSR and wholly recommend this education to any aspiring home stager out there who may have any doubts in their own ability.

Heidi Swart Life of Decor LLC

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!


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

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!!


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

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.

Sheila Jordan

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 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've enjoyed the training so much. It is so thorough and provides all the details that you need to get your business started. The support provided by Audra and her team is amazing and super responsive! I highly recommend.

Trish Arnold Trish Arnold Interiors

I have truly enjoyed the HSR certification program. I learned a lot about business, marketing and home staging concepts. I loved the live videos you did also. I am not a tech person so it is most helpful that you give us great outlines for agreements and all the appropriate paperwork to get started without spending all that time recreating forms. From day one to the very end it is a great program I will recommend to everyone. Thank you!


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.

Jo Ellen Weisner Epic Staging

The training was awesome! I had already completed most of the things in Week 1 when I started my business 3 years ago. Week 2 was where I needed Audra the most...and she delivered! There is so much information, so many tools, and instruction. I only wish I had done the training before. Now, it's all about implementation. Thank you Audra and thanks to your team! You rock!
