Congratulations to Staging Diva Graduate Jodi Whalen of Pear Tree Home Designs who not only managed to triple her business in each of her first 3 years while working part-time just after her first baby was born, but on continuing to prove home staging works in her local market. For a recent project, she staged a one-bedroom apartment that had sat on the market for 9 months without a single offer.
After Jodi decorated it to sell, and within 7 days of it going back on the market, it sold for 94% of the asking price.
> If you have a story to share about your business, I would love to turn it into an article like the one I wrote for Jodi. I’ve even set up an easy-peasy process to let me know. Check it out here!
Congratulations to Staging Diva Graduates Leah Fritz of Perfect Place Home Staging (WI) and Dianna Leeder of 2 Visions Design (SK and ON) on heading into their 6th years as home stagers!
Both have renewed their listings in the Staging Diva Directory of Home Stagers to help prospective clients find them. Leah writes, “Things are going great. I’ve been very busy business-wise and enjoying every minute of it! I have many stagings going, plus redesigns and a speaking engagement this week, with more consults to do well into April!”
I distinctly remember when Leah was just starting out, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy news like this from my students and graduates, so please stay in touch, everyone!
