It is so rewarding for me to feature this Staging Success Spotlight stories. I’m continually blown away by the progress and enthusiasm of recent Staging Diva Graduate, Red Barrineuvo of Redesign4More (Toronto). By day he’s a stock trader, but on the side, he’s a very talented home stager and redesigner. I’m delighted that he has just joined the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers as I know it will bring him tons of new projects! In his latest email he shares this news:
“I just got paid $9,500 for my redesign project in Cabbagetown. Debra it is unbelievable, I never thought I could get paid this much for decorating. I was just all smiles the whole day yesterday because I feel like I got paid to play!
And while choosing furniture for my current project, I met a different couple in the store and helped them choose the right artwork and lamps for their own place. It turns out they just renovated their Rosedale home and because they liked the ideas I shared in the store, they want me to do their whole house right after Christmas! Isn’t that amazing?! Honestly, the $1300 I spent for the Staging Diva Program is by far the best purchase ever. I am still in shock with the turn of events with my new company! I’m so excited for more things to come in the new year!”
