Congratulations to Staging Diva Graduate Imogen Brown of Home Staging Brisbane (Australia) on a recent home staging consultation. She says, “I consulted on a cluttered townhouse last Wednesday evening. The photographer was booked for Friday morning! The owner used nearly all my suggestions and completed the work (and shopping) in a single day (with two kids under 3 in tow). I love it when sellers listen and act on my advice. Well done to both of us.”
Never under estimate how much impact you can have (or how much you can make) doing simple home staging consultations. Many clients want to do “the work” themselves, and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as you’re making sure you’re paid well for your advice.

Congratulations to Staging Diva Graduate Melissa Goulet of In The Details Home Staging(Hamilton, ON) who took the Staging Diva Program in the last 6 months. She wrote to update me on her business progress:
“Yesterday was a good day! First a call out of the blue for redesign, then a wonderful agent I know hired me for two high-end properties: $700,000 and $1,200,000. Then an email for an interior design, wow! You were right on the money when you said people need to see your ad and face and they will remember you! Slow and steady goes the tortoise! I also have two existing redesign clients. So the best advice I would give someone entering a new venture would be keep on plugging along because somewhere, sometime, things happen for the better! And lastly, taking the Staging Diva Programreally did propel me into a thought process that has more than paid off!”
I LOVE that Melissa wrote me right away with her news as I get such a buzz hearing about my students breaking through the early days of getting established and seeing their marketing efforts pay off!If you’d like to learn the exact business and marketing formula I taught Melissa, these products will help you:
