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 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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 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%.
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 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!
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!
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.
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,
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!
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.
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.
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!!
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 really enjoyed the e-Design training. I love your gifts, all these promotional materials, videos...AMAZING! I can definitely see myself working as an e-Designer 100% of my time as I enjoy the whole process. Thank you for motivating me to push my boundaries. I feel that I need to watch your videos from time to time whenever I feel down or swamped or something like that. :)
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!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the E-design training. The resources provided as well as those suggested are phenomenal. I never would have thought that I could pull off offering a comprehensive remote product before this. This training can be used to enhance an existing staging and re-design business or be a career on its own. I love it! Thank you for sharing your expertise and passion for design with the rest of us.
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 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.
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!
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 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!
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!
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.
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 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!
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 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!
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!
I just completed my training! I must say, this training was very informative, very information packed, and very helpful. You would be hard pressed to find a comprehensive step by step guide to setting up your own business anywhere like this! Guys, this is your business wrapped in a bow! Can't get any simpler than that! Thank you Audra 1000 times over!
The HSR training was invaluable in not only helping to solidify my choice in making a huge career change, confidently, but feeling as though I have an automatic "dial-a-friend" when needed! I enjoyed the training scope of incorporating the layers of learning (reading/homework & practicing certain applications throughout/videos). Now that I have completed this certification, I will be signing up for the Color Certification & E-Design as well!
HSR 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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
Audra, I’ve taken all of your courses now and I have to say that E-Design gets me the most excited as a low-investment, easy way to earn money NOW. I also love the additional training materials and technologies available to help me automate and create sales / marketing funnels. It is going to help me be more competent about applying this throughout all aspects of my business(es).
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've been staging properties for the last 3 years and have always wanted to go deeper in this business. Until now, I didn't feel I had enough training to turn my love of redesign into a real business. HSR has given me the training, the forms and the confidence to move forward. I can't wait to see what is ahead!
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 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!
Audra's E-Design training is very comprehensive and offers a great way to get your business started. You don't have to "re-invent the wheel". She sets all the ground work for you! She is a wonderful trainer and full of great information. I thoroughly enjoyed this training!
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!!!
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!
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!
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.
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
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 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!
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!
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.
I have been in the home staging industry for almost 10 years and until recently I didn't think having formal training was necessary. Audra provided me with invaluable advice in terms of marketing strategies and alternative revenue streams! I cannot wait to implement what I've learned and grow my business! Thank You Home Staging Resource!
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!
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.
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!
The training was fantastic and the HSR templates are absolutely gorgeous. Audra is so personable and relatable and makes the training very engaging. I am also taking the Staging/Redesign training and this course helped reinforce some of the lessons in that course. The templates make it easy to build on and get really creative.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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 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!!
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.
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 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!
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.
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 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!
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.
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!
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!
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!!
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
HSR is a one stop shop educational source to help create your design business come true. You are learning, building strategies, being creative, but mostly HAVING FUN! Audra has touched on every aspect you could imagine and more. What a benefit these courses are to novices or legend in the industry that is expanding their knowledge.
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.
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 training is geared more for marketing E-Design services, which is very helpful. The actual training on how to use the software comes from E-Design tutorials. The templates are a great jumping off point to use and get the creative juices flowing. You can customize the templates and make them your own.
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!
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!
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!
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.
