Stager-success-story-new

I love to share stories of encouragement and success that so many of my HSR members and grads have had in this incredible industry!  This story is a bit unique because it starts with someone who had the odds stacked a bit against them (healthwise) and ends with a Facebook Post, to the New Stager by this amazing HSR grad...enjoy! 

In this staging success story, I'm featuring Lindsey Childs of Navy and Gray Designs, a Middle Georgia professional home stager and designer.  Typical of all of my stories, I'm going to sprinkle in gorgeous photos of her work which was a success story in that it sold in 6 days!

When Lindsey first signed up for my HSR Certification program back in August of 2017, she had some big, legitimate concerns about starting a business...

In her "Getting to Know You Form" she mentioned that she had started a business but was not successful because she didn't have a blueprint for success.

"I have tried to start my own business before, in a different line of work, but I was missing too many pieces. I need that "business in a box" so to speak. With a someone telling me what steps I needed to be taken."

Before Navy and Gray Designs...

"I was laying in bed dealing with an autoimmune disease, and ran across Audra's Home Staging Resource website...it was a BAM moment and I knew that Home Staging would pull together all the random talents I had.  I also knew that I had the 'eye'".

After Navy and Gray Designs...WOW!

 

"I have always had an eye for design, but i didn't think that could make a living from it.  Every house/apartment we have had I have staged.  I staged our last house and we sold it to the first buyer!  Then as we renovated our current home, I realized just how much love design, the process and the end result."

"After reading over Audra's website, I discovered how I could create my own business and still be there for my family.  Setting my own schedule is gold, especially having an auto immune disease.  It was the perfect fit for my lifestyle and talents."

After Navy and Gray Designs

"The HSR Certification Training gave me a good basis of what staging was and how to go about creating a business....Navy and Gray Designs is much more today than I thought it would be when I started."

Before Navy and Gray Designs...

"I have staged vacant houses, but also found a love of Redesign.  Coincidentally, Redesign is a huge portion of my business.  And with the skill set combined with staging, I bring a lot to the table when it comes to selling investment properties." 

Audra Side Note - This is why you should get trained in BOTH staging and redesign as a business model:-)

Finally, Lindsey had this advice to say to new stagers on Facebook this week, so I had to share it to encourage you all...

When she created that post, she included a picture of her new moving truck and selfie...how cool is that?
