This training was beyond what I expected. I was so pleasantly surprised to see that it included so many forms and templates that I can use in our business. The social media training was such a plus for me. Thank you for providing this training.

I am thankful for the HSR course and Audra's leadership. I recognized early on, that my passion alone for interior decorating wasn't enough to move ahead in this industry. Audra provides the knowledge on how to BUILD A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS. As a result of taking this course, I have since stepped out on faith, resigned my position as an Elementary School Administrator and I am going all in!

Fantastic training program! Audra is so easy-going, real, knowledgeable and hits all the nails right on the head! She gives you a friendly, realistic, amazingly organized and reassuring presentation in her videos ...and I love her giggle and inviting glass of wine! LOL I never tire of watching and listening to Audra! The manual is a treasure trove of invaluable information, tips, worksheets, progressive subjects and chapters...very very detailed and covers an amazing amount of ground! I was a home furnishings store design consultant for years working with clients and a realtor who staged my listings and some other agents' listings so I've worked with clients and agents every which way, and Audra really understands all angles and aspects and brings that specialized training to you! The training is a great combination of manual and videos and the extra support she offers in fb stagers connect, workshops online, resources, etc is super! I would highly recommend HSR and the professional credentials in completing the program and certification you earn!

From clueless to confident, the Home Staging Certification Course by Home Staging Resource took my passion for design and turned it into a business ready to thrive! The course was an exhilarating journey filled with invaluable insights, expert guidance, and fantastic extras that truly set it apart. I learned the art of transforming spaces, honed my eye for detail, and gained a treasure trove of practical tips to kick start my career. Could I have done this on my own? I thought I could, until I realized that Audra's class saved me about a year of research and work, yes I still had to put a lot of work into streamlining everything, but i would have never known to do any of those things without HSR's guidance. Thanks to this course, I'm now ready to rock the home staging world, armed with knowledge, creativity, and the confidence to make every house a showstopper. If you're ready to unleash your design superpowers and take your skills to new heights, this course is an absolute game-changer! Get ready to make magic happen!

I have worked in a corporate environment for many years, but the Home Staging and Redesign Certification Course was one of the best learning experiences I have ever had. The training is comprehensive with a practical orientation. It is completely based on the experience and research of Audra and other stagers. They provide insights, examples and tools that were extremely helpful to develop staging and design skills and build confidence. I never expected to get so much out of an online training course!

Home Staging Resource and Audra, provided a really comprehensive home staging training. Everything you need to start your business is there! I so appreciated all the sample forms that I do not need to "reinvent the wheel." And, her wealth of knowledge and experience really helped especially with what works and what may not so I do not need to waste time trying something. I am so glad that I chose HSR for my training and certification!!

For about two years now I have been searching and research a home staging and re-design program that is fun, exciting and comprehensive and I believe this program hit those points completely. All the other programs I looked into were not as thorough and detailed as Audra's HSR Staging program. She covered so much and presented so many different scenario one would encounter and how to overcome objections. I am looking forward to start my business and implement all those fantastic ideas Audra gave. I am extremely grateful that I found this program at the time I did and I am grateful for Audra's teaching style. Thank you so much

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

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

The HSR training is detailed, comprehensive, and will provide anyone with an eye for design with all the step by step instructions needed to start a successful home staging business. The training is also filled with practical tips and interviews from others who have been certified and are operating successful decorating ventures. Audra's energy and enthusiasm is motivating. Her words of encouragement and regular emails are inspiring. I appreciated the often needed confidence boost! I also appreciate getting regular emails and tips as a continued member to get a constant stream of motivation and informative webinars and industry updates. Audra, thanks for a great resource to help creative people realize that a career in decorating and design is valued and possible!

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

Audra's training was thorough and so full of relevant information. One of the reasons I chose this training was because she talked about continuing to update the curriculum as trends and technology changes. I loved being assured that when I completed this course, I would have the history and foundation of staging and design as well as the validity of the current trends and field scope. I loved the variety of videos, print materials, photos and testimonials which really gave me an immersive learning experience and allowed me to fully grasp the concepts. It was encouraging to see and here the results others have had in the industry and know that I have the capability to follow in their footsteps.

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

While I have the passion for design and a general business background, the training has provided a great roadmap to get our business up and running in a timely manner with an efficient foundation so that we can focus on the part of the business we enjoy!

Home Staging Resource-Staging and Redesign Course is by far the best course I have taken in regards to how to start a business and how to market your business. These techniques can be used across any industry! I wish I would have listened to my intuition and taken the course years ago; I feel more confident in my career in the Home Staging & Organization and Real Estate Industry having completed this course.

I am so excited to get my business started and use the knowledge that I have gained from Audra's instruction and the HSR Staging and Redesign Certification to help people make their homes comfortable, organized and beautiful places to live, guide them in using what they already have to transform their home for themselves or to get top dollar in resale when prospective buyers FEEL HOME.

Audra Slinkey's HSR Certified Staging and Redesign is a very thorough training for anyone looking to get into staging and redesign. She captures your attention with her high energy and enthusiasm for the industry. She hosts many happy hours over zoom in between and this is a bonus. The material and handouts are very informative. Very valuable information all around!

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

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

This course has shown me how to apply my professional experience in my previous marketing position, along with my passion for design, to create a career that is a dream come true. I learned so much, and it was great being able to complete the course at my own pace. I couldn't be more excited to launch my business, and having this training has helped build my confidence in my design abilities, and taught me how to create a successful business. I am so thankful for Audra sharing her expertise!

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

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

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

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

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

Audra's training is the most in-depth course I've even taken. Every single part of the business is covered, not just design.

I wish I had found this course 15 years ago.

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

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 filled pages on pages in my notebook just from the 1 hour class. I knew the training would be so helpful and informative and I was right! I now feel so confident to start my own business! I can't thank the HSR team enough!

I 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.

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

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!!

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.

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

I 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 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.

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.

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

I have 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!

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!

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!

profile-pic

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 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.

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

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

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

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!

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 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.

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.

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!

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 look forward to expanding my brand and am so excited for this new chapter!

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 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 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!

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!

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

She connects you with other Stagers so you feel a part of a team. I highly recommend HSR Staging and Redesign 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.

Now that I have completed this certification, I will be signing up for the Color Certification & E-Design as well!

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.

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!

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!

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

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

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

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

Again, WOW!

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!

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

I 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 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.

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 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!

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!

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.

Audra has sincere passion and dedication to the staging industry as demonstrated through her training.

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.

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 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!

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.

As an interior design and real estate agent I came to this training with a fairly solid background and understanding of home staging, but Audra was able to help me put my business together in such a professional manner. She is extremely detailed in her experience with not only design, but with best business practices and marketing. Her wealth of information is something that I am sure I will be reflecting back on in the months to come. Thank you, Audra for helping me put my best foot forward in this new venture.

Audra 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!

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

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

Warm Regards,

Fantastic training program! Audra is so easy-going, real, knowledgeable and hits all the nails right on the head! She gives you a friendly, realistic, amazingly organized and reassuring presentation in her videos ...and I love her giggle and inviting glass of wine! LOL I never tire of watching and listening to Audra! The manual is a treasure trove of invaluable information, tips, worksheets, progressive subjects and chapters...very very detailed and covers an amazing amount of ground! I was a home furnishings store design consultant for years working with clients and a realtor who staged my listings and some other agents' listings so I've worked with clients and agents every which way, and Audra really understands all angles and aspects and brings that specialized training to you! The training is a great combination of manual and videos and the extra support she offers in fb stagers connect, workshops online, resources, etc is super! I would highly recommend HSR and the professional credentials in completing the program and certification you earn!

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

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

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!

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?!?!

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.

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!

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

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

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

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 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 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!

Home Staging Resource-Staging and Redesign Course is by far the best course I have taken in regards to how to start a business and how to market your business. These techniques can be used across any industry! I wish I would have listened to my intuition and taken the course years ago; I feel more confident in my career in the Home Staging & Organization and Real Estate Industry having completed this course.

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

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

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

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

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

I 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 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.

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 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.

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!

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

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.

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

I have 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!

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.

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

Your gift in helping others to be set up for success is priceless and I am excited for my journey.

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

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

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!

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!

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

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

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

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

I 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!

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.
