People are Raving About Audra's Training
I have been a realtor for 8 years and commonly staged my clients homes without any formal training, because I knew their homes would sell quicker and for more money if properly staged. Honestly though, it is because I love to decorate. I had taken a staging course previously for realtors which pretty much gave me basics, but not much else. When I moved from Colorado to South Carolina I didn't want to get my real estate license and start all over. I decided that if I have to start at something all over I'd rather be a full time stager. I wasn't in the HSR class for long, but following along with the outline I started getting calls. My first job with with a home builder doing model homes. My second was with a new home owner buying their first new home. I'll admit I was scared and excited at the same time. But with the resources HSR gives you, such as stagers connect, (this was a life saver), and all step by step forms, it really went smoothly. I would highly recommend HSR if you are serious about becoming a stager!
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 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!
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.
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 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.
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.
I just completed the HSR training which is by far the best certification program out there!!! I researched a lot of the staging training companies, and you will not receive all of the knowledge that Audra shares in any other program. You get so much information and resources that it is mind blowing. I can't wait to get my business up and running!!
I have to say this training is one of the best I've seen associated to the Home Staging industry. It is extremely thorough and provides step by step processes to set one up for success. The additional support on marketing is unmatched. Having the visuals ready to go for us and research available and cited saves so much time. The premium website package is FANTASTIC and definitely worth every penny!
I 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 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.
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.
I have completed both the Staging course and the e-design course. I love the way the information is not only practical but immediately usable as well. I was able to start working with my first e-design client right away. I am not techy, but by using the training and videos, I was able to easily handle using the e-design technology.
Audra, you hit a home run with this training course! I found it extremely easy to follow and work into a very hectic schedule. As a 30+ year realtor who works closely with all my clients in preparation for their home sell, I discovered there many other services I can now offer before and after the selling process. Thank you Audra, I look forward to following you and your fabulous group of Stagers & Redesigners.
I have 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.
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!
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!
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!!
If you have always loved design and want to become a professional Home Stager, look no further. This is it!! Audra provides not only outstanding training material, filled with details and visuals, but she also shares her expertise with marketing ideas and How-To. And to top it all, she has a great energy and cares about her stagers. She has offered me more than tools. She boosted my confidence to go after my dream. For that, I will be forever grateful! Thank you Audra!
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.
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!
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.
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 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!
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.
The HSR training was phenomenal. Audra really went above and beyond with the training, guides, design modules and supporting documentation. The information she's provided has made this business turn-key. Also by using videos and walking us through critiques, real life situations, and examples, I was able to develop confidence in taking on this new chapter in my life. I can't wait to get my first staging job!
I 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.
Audra's Home Staging Training is fun and comprehensive. Having a background in art & design I was impressed with her knowledge and pulling it all together for staging & redesign. There is a ton of information here! The business foundation is comprehensive and the checklist makes it easy to stay organized by checking off all the completed boxes. The best part about all of it is Audra makes it fun and digestible! You're not going to get that anywhere else! I highly recommend HSR and I look forward to my next course in E-design!
Audra's Home Staging Resource training is excellent. She truly offers the A to Z aspects of staging or redesigning a home. Her videos are easy-to- watch, informative, and bring her training and expertise to us. Her manual is comprehensive. Her HSR Library of materials are super time-savers in getting started or being organized. After taking this course, it has reignited my passion for staging and redesign. I am confident that I am prepared and knowledgeable to immediately start my successful staging and redesign business, Gulf Coast Staging. Lily Ann Gathings
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!
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!
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.

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!
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 training, the presentation of the information, the way and the order in which it is presented, with both video and book work, really keeps you engaged. It is super informative, with lots of examples, before and after. Audra keeps it simple and to the point. Not a lot of FLUFF, but every day, every budget, information and examples. She has years of experience and passes all of this to you in your training. The ability to look back to the book or go back online to watch the videos again, is extremely valuable. The FB page and the other social media avenues for reinforcement and continued support, is one of the things to set this training apart from other trainings.
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 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.
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 was a fantastic foundation to get my business up and running. Providing guidance on steps to start a small business, details and examples on services and pricing, and providing a connection point to others in my same "new to professional staging/designing" boat were invaluable parts to moving forward into this industry!
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!
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
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.
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.
Audra's Training is very comprehensive and she has taken all the guess-work out of the equation. She even makes sure to enhance and add to the training regularly content, so it remains current and relevant. This allow us to keep up with current industry trends and remain competitive.
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!
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 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.
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.
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!
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!
I am so grateful to have found Audra's Training , she and her team did an outstanding job on this course. It was everything I thought it would be and more. I am also so thankful for each and every document she has given to us to help us succeed in our business. This course has given me the confidence and knowledge need to start to build a business for myself and my family. Although I am just building my business I do feel hopeful that I can succeed due to taking this course. I can tell a lot of work has gone into development of the course and again I truly grateful!! I do see myself taking the color course next! I have told people about how great this course is and will continue to do so . Thank you Audra and all others involved! You are amazing , thank you thank you and thank you!!
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!!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Excellent & informative training, very easy to follow. The library of forms are very helpful to get your business up and running right away.
The HSR training program has truly exceeded my expectations. I researched various programs for several months before deciding on HSR. Attending Audra's Happy Hours solidified my choice, as I really enjoyed her teaching style and the information she provided was like GOLD! All I could think was, "If the Free Happy Hours are this informative, I can only imagine the wealth of information that lies within the program!"
This course has challenged everything I thought I knew about design and staging, and pushed me way out of my comfort zone. I started the program feeling a bit overwhelmed and unsure if I would ever retain everything I was learning. Sure enough, by the end of each day, I felt more confident in my skills and my ability to deliver quality service to my clients.
I am now fully-equipped to take my business to the next level. Many thanks to Audra and the entire HSR team!
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'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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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,
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
If there is one word to describe the HSR training it would have to be thorough! Audra has used her expertise in the greatest way possible by giving us every tool that she has in her arsenal for us to use for not only setting up our businesses, but also to succeed in the business! Thanks Audra! This training is invaluable!
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!
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!
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!
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!!
Even with experience with Home Staging under my belt I wanted to be certified. I was pleasantly surprised at how much more I learned going through this course. I highly recommend it!
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.
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!
I honestly was actually humbled to have been told by a friend about Home Staging Resource for the training and certification program. I am a full time working single mother of three kids. I am a Monday through Friday, 8-5 worker with periodic overtime still trying to make ends meet. I have ambitions and goals to further myself and better myself, not just for me but to leave a legacy for my three kids. Being my own boss one day to as well have the time for sports and any appointments needed for the kiddos. To have a job where my kids eventually will have a job with me if they so decide. I am extremely excited to be my own stability. I am so incredibly happy with the layout of the training let alone the amount of time I am given to complete the course in order to get certified. It definitely has helped with all that life brings. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
This has been the best staging course I've done! It offers everything you need without the additional cost! Well worth every cent!
