I aboslutely love that the HSR templates are available to hit the ground running with and promote my new eDesign service! They are beautifully created and I think that my clients will love them. Audra did a fantastic job walking me through the marketing automated systems. She really knows how to explain everything in such a positive way that makes me even more excited for this industry!
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!
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!
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!
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 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.
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!
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.
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!
The E-Design training and HSR Templates provided by Audra are amazing! I love that I have everything I need to hit the ground running, as well as how to market my business and feel confident that I will be successful. This training is well worth every penny for all of the expertise and knowledge you will gain. The business materials are by far the best and Audra leaves no stone unturned when helping you launch your e-design business. From the training, to the templates, which are all beautiful by the way, to helping you market yourself to success...You will not be disappointed!
The training was very straight forward and helpful. It guides you and makes you think outside the box on how you would apply it to your business. I am glad that I took this course as it also gave me a sense of direction and approach for my business.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
I LOVED this training. I like the way it's set up better than the staging training (even though they are very similar). A ton of great content and I'm so excited to get started on offering this as a start to more services for clients.
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!
I can not say enough good things about this training. I know a lot of people say that and it's so very true. Can't even imagine how many hours Audra has put into this EXCELLENT training. Definitely worth the price! I would have NEVER had the confidence before to make my dream come true. Now I can honestly say I do and more than I ever thought I could. Thanks Audra for this AWESOME training and the confidence to be able to follow my dream.
Audra Slinkey and Home Staging Resource provide the most extensive tools, resources, and training to successfully start your business in staging/redesign and more. While some say that staging can be done by anyone, with HSR training and the materials provided, HSR Certified Stagers/Redesigners become the professional experts in this field.
I 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!
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.
This is the third training I have completed with Audra, and it just might be my favorite. This literally speaks to my love of design and organizing looks. I can't believe how much fun it is going to be to compile boards of my own. My in-laws own a wedding venue, and I am thinking about how to put together wedding boards for their brides. It's exciting!
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!
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%.
This training introduced me to an entirely new facet of design, and I'm excited to share it with my clients! The ability to produce visuals with ease will provide another level of service, and will be a game-changer when working with clients remotely!
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!
Thank you so much!!!
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!
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!
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!
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.
This is an excellent training on E-Design. The lessons are well thought-out and none are too complex for us less-than expert "techies" or for those of us who didn't know E-Design even existed before joining HSR. The partnership between HSR and DesignFiles is wonderful, and the fact that we get access to the HSR Templates is such a great bonus... plus we have the option of not using the HSR Templates should the need arise. Thank you to Audra, Sheilah, Cole and everyone who has made this training possible!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
If you are even considering taking this course, it must mean you love home design. STOP HESITATING! I was and am still blown away by the attention to detail, the amount of useful materials, and just the pure natural skill Audra has as an instructor. Bonus: She knows all about marketing and does not skip a beat on informing you of all of the many outlets/opportunities the staging world has to offer. With her help I was able to start my licensed business, Home Buzz Staging & Redesign in beautiful Palm Springs, CA. I grew up near the Coachella Valley & have even expanded my services to my home town of Joshua Tree. I started staging in WEEK ONE of this training! I was able to go in with a ton of confidence knowing that HSR and Audra had my back. I've already been successful in this business while staging vacant, occupied, and vacation rental homes. Airbnb staging and redesign is my absolute favorite! I can't wait to explore all of the other staging avenues! Thank you, Audra!!
The E-Design class is packed with time-saving information. It is creative and Audra offers much insight into working design from your computer. This class should increase your bottom line significantly with both increased income and efficiency.
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Another incredible training experience. I had just completed the Staging & Redesign Certification training and jumped right in to this one. The level of detail, guidance and materials you provide are simply outstanding! I'm am starting the Certified Color Expert training tomorrow and can't wait to be blown away again. I feel like a kid in a candy store, it's awesome!!!
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!
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
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.
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.
This intense training has been the best month of my career! I finally feel like I'm able to pull together years of my knowledge of selling vintage furniture and decorating for family and friends into a career. The basis of Audra's course being the business aspect is something that is not offered in any other course that I have researched and is very much appreciated. I look forward to expanding my brand and am so excited for this new chapter!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
I have been overwhelmed with the wealth of information I have received through the Expert E-Designer training program. I am so excited to use what I have learned and to avail of the templates and resources shared throughout the course. I am extremely confident that all of the above will elevate my Interior Decorating and Color Consultation services, as well as the Occupied Staging services I will be offering in the near future. My clients will benefit tremendously from all this knowledge. I am also in the midst of the Certified Color Expert training program which is amazing! Thank you, Audra, for opening my eyes to the potential I always knew existed but did not quite know how to achieve!
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!
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!
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.
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 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.
I couldn’t have asked for a more concise and simplified way of learning how to do E-Design PROPERLY. I wish I had known about this course months ago when a regular design client turned into an E-Design client due to covid....it did not go nearly as seamlessly as I would’ve liked and I would’ve avoided a lot of bumps if I had this course to follow along with at the time. Needless to say, I wish I could get a do-over!!
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!
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 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!
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!!
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.
I am so glad I took this course. It took me longer then expected to complete; however Audra has prepared me in more ways then I ever expected. I cannot thank her enough and can't wait to start my next class with her!
I 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!
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.
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!
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.
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 was blown away by how all the materials needed to run my E-Design business were pretty much handed to me. Everything is pretty much planned out for me already and I just need to follow all the steps, copy & paste most materials by just adding a little flair of my personality and poof... no need to reinvent the wheel. THANK YOU!
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!
I loved the class. The length was just perfect, not to overwhelming. It really reined in my big ideas to start small and easy. Love the possibilities of where this can take me! Excited to get started in marketing my business.
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 really enjoyed taking this course. Loved the templates and all the HSR boards, it gives me a lot of confidence getting started with e-design. I still have not decided what my niche will be, but I'm so excited about all the possibilities! Thank you for all the priceless marketing bonus advice!
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!
Thank you Audra for truly covering every aspect of starting a new business. I went into this training nervous, confused, and with a very blurred idea of what home staging is. Now, just by following the detailed steps of the training, I have a full company that I am CONFIDENT about and I'm so excited and ready to make homes beautiful! I was happy to discover that not only does Audra cover home staging, but she also provides more business ideas for you to get involved with and make extra money! This industry is full of opportunity once you jump on in! I feel like I chiseled off the first 2 years of trial and error for a startup business and I no longer see any room for failure. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Trust the process people, this gal knows what shes doing!
I thought this training was great! I learned SO much. I have taken the CCE and also the Staging and Redesign courses and this really rounds out my design business. With it I am that much more confident in the tools I have when I am working with clients. I am really excited about all the possibilities of E-Design and how it will help me communicate my vision. It will allow me to reach so many new clients all around the world!
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.
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.
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.
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!
This training has been amazing. Everything you could think of wanting to learn in this industry is provided for you. I love that Audra's main mantra is that there is nothing new under the sun so don't reinvent the wheel but be creative. She provides you with forms, sell sheets, example contracts, verbiage to use, everything! This is a lot of information to process but it's so worth it and I feel 10 times more confident starting this business because I have these resources available to me and the training under my belt.
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've done all three of your trainings and have thought they were awesome. Lots of good information, in a well planned format, with visual and sequence of activities. I'm becoming a fan of checklists which I'd never thought were worth the time. So much is already provided, graphics, give aways, emails, so we don't have to "reinvent" the wheel. This was particularly true in the E-Design course. I love that you went to the depth of actually showing us a scheduler, which I'd have to adjust to a bit. I do see the value for time savings for both parties, and I appreciate how you addressed keeping it personal for the client. Thank you so much!
Audra's courses give you a fail proof plan from A to Z. From learning, developing, building, with a dash of confidence to trust in what you learned (or knew what was in you all along), but it wouldn't work without the marketing plans she walks you through. I plan to follow her marketing steps and rules to really bring it home. I'm going through all of her courses at the same time (HSR, Color Expert, and E-Design) and while it is a LOT LOT LOT of information, it is so worth every penny to hear, learn and execute what she teaches. Loving this new chapter in my life to launch my business and know I have learned from the best.
During this Covid19 times, I lost my job in the fashion industry and so decided to do my purpose and what I loved best which involves some fashion i.e. Staging and Redesign. So I got certified for staging with another company. Then 4 months later I stumbled on Audra's Staging Training on youtube and decide to buy her training because of the way she broke down the steps for me to learn effectively. When I saw the E-Design youtube video I was sold and invested in myself by buying that training as well. The training is very detailed and very clear to understand. I love this thorough way of teaching because that's how I learn and the examples were amazing. I was able to follow each and every step thoroughly and go back if I didn't understand and go back if I need to write my notes. I love the fact that Audra was able to gave us our business on a tray. She basically gave us our business in our hands by training us in this way so we can have a full understanding of how to run it. Of course we can have our own creative way of doing our boards etc. but I'm so appreciative of how she broke it down and really handed us our business in our hands. 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,
This training was the best 3 days I have spent on my business! I am a creative person who can spend all day looking at the amazing design boards that are included with Audra's Expert E-Designer Program; however, I was intimidated by using the technology since I am not a "techy" person. Audra explained everything step-by-step, which made the technology easy to understand - even for me. I watched the videos on my iPad while implementing each step on my laptop - I wish I could take credit for this technique, but it was a suggestion of Audra's at the beginning of the training. It worked like a charm! By the end of the training, I had my E-Design business ready to launch!
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!
