I am so glad I chose HSR to get my training and certification. Audra you have been an inspiration and I have learned so much from you. Thank you
The ease in which I am able to personalize it to fit my branding!
I was impressed with how the shell of the website built for me looked from Day 1. Being semi-technical, I was able to jump right in and start customizing. For me, I found that watching "how to" videos on my iPad while I actually followed along on my new website saved a lot of valuable time!
My friend's and family are impressed with my new website, and I just let them think it was all me...
I thoroughly appreciated the detailed step by step videos that Audra provides that helped me design my first website in just a few hours. I love the sleek professional look and feel of my website.
What I learned in the HSR course was invaluable. Everything from the business and marketing aspect of staging and design, to the creative, it was far more thorough than I ever dreamed! I feel so prepared to get started and succeed! Thank you Audra!
This was a great roadmap to get my staging business off the ground!
I knew how important having the right training would be. That is why I spent a lot of time researching online. Your name came up on any search I did, so I knew you knowledgeable about online marketing. I was able to go through some of your videos about why your training was important, and I was impressed. So, I called some of the stagers listed on your directory, and they all gave you high grades. But, the most impressive thing that made up my mind was that you answered your phone when I called for additional information. In my past career, I was the vice president of online development and marketing and you reinforced the tactics I used, as well as, enlightened me on some additional things I could do. Thank you very much.
I am so thankful and excited that I invested in this training certification through HSR! It has taken me almost 8 months to finish so if you start out and life gets crazy don't give up! Audra is great at encouraging you to take the course at your own pace and she means it. I feel like I am better prepared for success taking this extra time and trusting God's direction in the process. Audra and HSR are amazing!!
Wow! That is the only way to describe this training. As an entrepreneur and design professional wanting to shift gears into the staging platform, I found this training invaluable for the business and marketing expertise. I can't thank HSR enough for sharing this information and motivating me to expand into this next phase.
Well I want to thank you SO much for this great great training course Audra! Far superior to any I've seen, filled to the brim with amazing ideas, valuable learning that can only come from someone who knows her stuff!! You have given me many many good ideas to get me going. I cannot say enough good. Just being honest. A very good course, well worth the cost, and highly recommended. That came from the heart. Thank you again.
I absolutely love it and am so excited about this path I am venturing down. Thank you! I (without a doubt,) chose the right training program. This is going to be a life changing move for me!
I am ABSOLUTELY thrilled with this training!! Although it's taken me 2-1/2 weeks to finish "Week" 1, I couldn't be happier. I am EXTREMELY detailed oriented and realize that I am building my Brand so I want to make sure that I start with a solid foundation (setting up my sole proprietorship and obtaining all of the necessary licenses/tax reporting, etc). I am also watching TONS of before and after videos as well as researching my target audience and competition...WHEW!! I was telling my brother (retired #2 at IBM worldwide - I'm the poor relation, but not for long!!) this morning how impressed I am with everything that you have to offer and how instructive your videos are. I researched EVERY home staging company on the internet and am so happy that I chose you!!! ...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!
Excellent! I've learned so much already and is eager to learn more. All the questions I had before are being answered ten fold, I love this course so far!
You are providing all the education and resources needed to quick start a professional, organized and profitable business. There is a lot to learn and you relay it in a thorough and logical format. I mostly appreciate the business development portions and having forms already prepared (so I don't have to reinvent the wheel). You are giving me a HUGE head start by guiding me with the best policies and procedures to formulate the business of my dreams! Thank you!
Love love love the new look.... Clean lines modern look
Yes!! Lots of them.
I found HSR Certification very informative. I love how we were provided with all the templates and business models. Audra is very generous in sharing things that have worked for her in her own business so we do not have to reinvent the wheel. I would highly recommend this program for anyone who is thinking of doing staging and design. Thank you Audra!!!
Audra's Home Staging Resource training is the most thorough course I found. It's flexible enough that you can complete it in as little as three weeks or take up to one year. You set the pace! The course does a great job of preparing you to start your own small business with abundant marketing tips and even includes sections on creating alternate income streams. I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to have the best credentials and become a professional home stager!
By far the best educational training program I have ever seen. The training is so extensive that I feel that it gives a big bang for your buck. I would also highly recommend the "Certified Color Expert" training program if you want to learn about the rules of color. And if you love color then you will love this program! Audra has done an exceptional job on both training programs with associated marketing advice for each.
Wow! Can't thank Audra enough for walking me through the entire Home Staging Resource training certification. This certification gives you all the necessary tools to prepare for a successful home staging career. The combination of the reading material, videos, forms and support made this such an great experience to go through. I finished the course feeling more than prepared to move into a new and exciting career in Home Staging.
The comprehensive guide and training has really provided me much more insight and knowledge than any other training class I took in the past. Wish I came to you first. You are a delight.
HSR and Audra provide you with all the tools to start you in the world of home staging. From thorough written materials including incredibly useful "design modules" to help you in every room of the house, to in depth videos that help you put it all together. Audra and HSR are invested in wanting to see your business thrive and that all starts with a great foundation they set you up on with their 21-day certification course.
I think it is amazing you tell everyone that they will be over whelmed and that it will all come together in the end. The part about being overwhelmed is dead on. I am an Illustration/ artist by education but running a business:? Tax forms? Licenses? Insert blonde head swimming here........I am mid training so I hope that as you said, it will all come together in the end. I KNOW I have the talent to make my business successful.
I recommend HSR training to anyone looking in to the Home Staging business. I compared other online training and by far I believe I made a GREAT decision. The resources and information given get your business up and running quickly. Thank you so much for putting so much time into giving us a great tool.
If you don't become a successful stager after taking Audra's HSR course, then I don't know what to say. After Week One, I was confident that I could do this! Audra gives everything you need and more, and more, and even more to transform you into a stager extraordinaire who will help homeowners create the look and feel that will sell their homes quickly and for what they ask. Thanks Audra and HSR.
I love the ease of setting everything up, changing the information and how hard y'all worked to give us the best website possible!
I love the way it looks! The design is perfect, clean and easy to update.
I haven't gotten any compliments yet however I look forward to having more and more people finding my website based on the extra videos teaching us how to boost our SEO! I haven't been able to watch all of the extra videos however I look forward to learning more and more on how to continue to build my website thus building my business.
I worked for a non-for-profit company that recently closed. I had already made up my mind prior to closing that I wanted to change career paths.
I had been looking at various staging course for the pass six months. I decided on HSR because they offered both Staging and Redesign package together, the other course that I researched were separate course with separate fees.
After the company closed, I put my faith in God and went for it. Now is a better time than ever, the information was overwhelming at first.
I had a brief background in design so I though I would skip a few of the chapters, but buy the time I got to week three, I realized I had to buckle down and start from the beginning. I must say it was pain staking but well worth it. I am happy to be stepping out into a new chapter in my life.
I am amazing at how comprehensive the training materials are! I definitely got my money's worth and have all the information I need to have a successful staging business!
Look no further! This training is everything you need and more to become a successful home stager. I'm so grateful for all the information Audra teaches. Now, I sound educated and confident that I am the person for the job!!! Thank you so much!
It's so easy to customize 🙂
It's so easy to manage! The steps along with the tutorial are so easy and quick to follow.
It looks great... very professional!
I am getting a lot of compliments about my new website.
I like that so much is covered. It seems like a very comprehensive program that covers all aspects of this new career I have chosen. I like that I can also jump around to look ahead. I wish I didn't have anything else to do so I could work on this all day.
Thank you Audra, I have enjoyed taking your course, it is extremely informative giving me confidence needed to officially start my new business. You've covered it all. I will continue to be a member to stay informed and current. Thank you !
This training is incredibly comprehensive. She covers just about every situation you can think of and I've been able to really hone on my ideal clientele. Though I already had a working organizing business, I WISH I had had help like this when I got started!
After researching and considering the training for several weeks, I finally signed up! I have never learned so much in about 4 weeks, especially about marketing and branding. Thank you Audra for all of your guidance and support. I feel confident and prepared.
HSR made it so easy to understand the many aspects of getting my home staging business and up and running. The information is so easy to reference in the training guide and online. I am super excited to put all this training into action! Thanks Audra 🙂
I think there is a lot of valuable information, forms and suggestions. I wouldn't know even where to go to start a business of my own. Seeing examples of before and after pics is great. If you can track my progress, then you already know I have not been able to be consistent about going through the program in a timely manner. I signed up in late August and am just finishing reading/watching through week one. There are so many things on the business side, lawyer, insurance, website, name etc, that I still have not had the time to do. I really am interested in this as a side job or even career. You do provide a lot of information, I would never have been able to find out on my own research/time.
Wish I had done the training before I started my business!
The training provided by HSR is absolutely top notch. I have learned so much over a short amount of time and cannot wait to apply it. Not only did I get the chance to hone in on my design skills, I also learned how to build a website, market my business and connect with vendors, dealers, realtors and form critical relationships. HSR provides a comprehensive, yet manageable approach. Before starting this journey I researched several other programs and eventually selected HSR & couldn't be more pleased.
Audra, you are such a wonderful teacher. Thank you for explaining things in terms that I can understand. I am absolutely loving this course & cannot wait to complete it so I can finally leave nursing & pursue my true passion of home staging! My real-estate agent really urged me to pursue my passion and you have helped to boost my confidence as well. I have been in nursing for 10 years and the business aspect is what really intimidated me. Thanks to you, I now have a better understanding and the business side makes more sense. I felt like Audra was there with me, guiding my steps. Thank you, Audra! You are my hero 🙂
I'm taking over an existing small home staging company and I think the HSR training is really going to help me grow this business and make it my own. Sometime when I feel overwhelmed destined to failure, I remind myself that I have a wonderful, proven step-by-step guide and I just need to move onto the "next step"!
HSR Training covers of every aspect of starting a Home Staging and Redesign business. Audra responds quickly to questions and provides ample resources.
It truly has been a pleasure learning from Audra! She provides soooo many wonderful resources for you to ensure you enter this field of Staging and Redesign effortlessly. I highly recommend this program to anyone thinking about becoming a home stager or redesigner and I look forward to continually growing and learning from this savvy entrepreneur.
The classy design, content and ease of use are fabulous!
I love it, love it, love it!
I love it. I enjoy learning how to build a business and watching the design modules. I feel this program is very organized and user friendly. As a realtor, I feel I'm learning a lot too since it goes hand and hand. Especially , when you mention photography, mls critiques, etc.. thank you!
I love it! Having a design background and working in the design industry, I love the business side of the training. As a group, we are typically creative people, but we aren't always good with the business side. I'm so appreciative to be receiving this information from HSR, for me, it is the most valuable part.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Home Staging Resource (HSR) and can’t say enough positives! Audra Slinkey’s approach and bandwidth of knowledge is remarkable!! Her training and the website package is completely worth it! Such a great value for the money! Not only does the course teach you how to stage and design; it's a course on how to establish your business, create your brand and the steps to grow your business. Audra Slinkey is the home staging, entrepreneurship & marketing guru! SO happy that I've been through the HSR Course and purchased the premium website package! I feel so prepare to start my new business, plus HSR and the team of other stagers I can network with through Stagers Connect lends tremendous support learning and keeping up to date on this amazing industry! Kudos to Audra and HSR!!
I have created websites from scratch using Word Press which was not a good experience. With HSR, the tutorials and their partnering with Thrive made it fun and easy to edit.
I love the professional look of my website and the fact that I can add my own touches.
Yes I'm getting great compliments from my website! My daughter is a graphic designer and she was even surprised how professional it looked. I highly recommend adding the website package. The training is above and beyond the best and the website is the icing on the cake!!!
This puts everything together for me. We are a lot alike in that I like to be very organized and have a process I follow. The step by step so far is great, my business is set up and I'll be ready for my first customer!!
Working through your program has been so fun and inspiring! I'm feeling excited and confident to start my career in staging now! Thank you, Audra
The most thorough, yet accessible, training program out there. Detailed and well written, it's a great guide for those new to the business!
As a veteran designer of 20 years, I knew I wanted to get certified and trained in staging so I can bring verified quality to my clients. HSR has made adding this component to my clients very easy and has provided me with resources to implement her training. The price of the course is worth EVERY PENNY! I now have more confidence to market myself as a Certified Stager and I'm better organized on the business side. Thanks so much Audra!
he HSR Home Staging Certification Training is worth its weight in gold. After completing the training, I am so much more confident in leaving my job as a teacher to pursue home staging full time. I am forever grateful to Audra and her team for the time and effort they have invested in such a valuable educational tool for home staging entrepreneurs.
I have recently completed another Home Staging course. I was told to check out your website afterwords. I wish I had come to you first as I have learned so much more valuable info from your course. You cover everything and there are no grey areas. I have recommended you to several of my friends wanting to learn how to home stage and one has already signed up and started with you. Your voice and demeanor had me at hello!!!
Audra's training is comprehensive, I appreciate all the valuable information! I especially appreciate her genuine desire to help me be successful. Audra is so encouraging and that helped me when I felt bogged down with new info! Thank you for fabulous training, support and care! I already have my first client!
I have loved every part of it...and especially that I can work at my own pace, come back to an area, or skip ahead. It's wonderful training!!
I love the training so far. Despite working full-time, I've been so excited that I've completed the first week in exactly a week (which I wasn't trying to accomplish but I was enjoying it and am eager to finish). I like that you give a lot of options in your material so that I can choose what works best for me right now. For example, you give several different staging reports, pricing options/names for the packages, etc.
The training is SO exceptional. I'm loving the process. I've learned so much in week 1 that I didn't learn in my first home staging certification with another trainer. Thank you for providing so much detail. Thank you for pricing guidelines as well as the "action plan", etc etc. I'm so excited about my home staging career after training with you!!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the process that Home Staging Resource offers. I have researched other companies, and felt that HSR was the type of organization that will be there for me and my company for many years. Audra's wonderful videos, trade discounts, checklists, contracts, paperwork, etc is worth it's weight in gold.
I tried to train myself with all sorts of books, websites, and information and put off investing in certified training until finally I knew I could not do it alone. Immediately, on Day 1 of HSR training, I knew my money was well spent and every hour devoted to the training would be useful, informative, timely, and it would and IS ALREADY getting my business off to a solid, successful start!
I am learning a lot so far! I have gone through all of the forms and edited my website fully. There is a lot of very helpful information just in the first week. Great information over all!
I think the training is extremely helpful and inspiring. I wish there were more hours in the day so I could just keep going!
I LOVE it!!! It is very informative, clear and easy to follow. Each lesson I complete builds my confidence a bit more and gives me the tools to be a successful home stager and redesigner. Thank you!
This training has given me the information, forms and training I needed to become confident and professional with my design skills. I appreciate the process that Audra has created for us to follow! My appointments should be much more smooth and organized now!
Great training, very informative! Audra gives you all the tools to build a design empire!
The Home Staging Resources certification course was exactly what I was looking for when I decided to do home staging and redesign as a profession. The wealth of information provided in the course has been informative and truly helpful. I love that I will be able to go back and review relevant materials anytime I need to in the coming year as I am growing my business.
I'm loving it! It's exactly what I need to give me confidence to get started. Thank you!
I absolutely love it Audra. Funny story, before I purchased your program I finally completed a loooong overdue project which was converting an office that I never used into a full walk in closet that I admire everyday. Well, I thought that I could just sit at my kitchen table and do my studies but I quickly leaned with all the racket going on around me, that I needed to take your advice and have a dedicated work space. So I sit here in the master bath closet taking my first weeks' quiz! I love it and I particularly love the peace and quiet it comes with. AND with every passing day, it becomes a little more cozier and warmer with some added throw pillows and scents from CAREFULLY burning candles......xoxo
The site is very easy to set up with watching all of the videos. I have never done a website, so this being easy for me means that the format and videos make it very simple! It is definitely worth the money!
I love the look of this website. I am in Orange County competing with people in Irvine, Newport Beach etc. and this site looks amazing by comparison.
It's not live yet, but I have no doubt everyone is going to love it!
I have been aspiring to try this business venture for several years, and with taking this training I learned so much more than just staging and redesign. I learned how to market, to be self confident in my capabilities, and perseverance! Thank you, Audra!!!
I was a software engineer and had so much love to do Home decor and wanted to follow that passion. Until I found HSR I was little lost in that dream. I am glad I found HSR and would have never got so much information anywhere else. HSR has all the great information in the training from beginning to the end. Before signing up for this program I had a vision that I will be fully trained with home staging details but now I am 100% trained for how to start this business and make it successful. That is "THE BEST" about HSR. Almost done with the training and excited to start my business. Thanks Audra for all the emails and your prompt response to my questions. I don't feel this as an online training. Your responses to my emails feel like a classroom training.
I love it.....it's very comprehensive and thorough. I like the videos and the extensive detail that is provided.
I signed up for this training following a week long in-person training. There is no comparison, Home Staging Resource is comprehensive in all areas of staging, redesign, alternative income streams, marketing and overall business. Audra is an industry leader who brings her passion and commitment for this industry in everything she does. I highly recommend her programs!
This training program really gives a comprehensive lesson on staging techniques as well as giving excellent business tips and tricks for beginners. It so wonderful to know I have the tools needed to start my own company.
It's great. I've learned a TON and the forms have been sooo incredibly helpful!
Embarking on this next step in our careers and crossing over from event design to staging and home design left us with a lot of questions. Home Staging Resource was exactly what we needed! Audra is a master at her craft, full of knowledge in the industry and she provides you with endless insider tips you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else. She arms you with invaluable training techniques, forms and reassurance that you've made the right decision! Best choice we made was getting our certification with Audra at HSR!
Thoroughly enjoyed the HSR training, and appreciated the plethora of information that was provided. The forms are great, and a helpful time saver, so that we don't have to "reinvent the wheel". Really liked the video aspect of the training, as I am a super visual learner. The training is a great reinforcement to things that we are learning first hand in the field. Thanks, Audra!
After I made my decision to start a new career in home staging I began researching training options. HSR offered everything I was looking for. The constant communication from Audra and abundance of information she made available for free, before I made the investment, gave me piece of mind that I would be getting my moneys worth. I wasn't disappointed. The training was thorough and gave me everything I needed to get started. The resources available through this membership are beyond comparable.
Love, love my new website. I am still updating on a daily basis, because I don't have very many photo's of my own to download (these are coming shortly).
Love the look and feel. Love the way it scrolls, showing the pictures in the background.
All my friends and family are commenting on the look and feel. They love it! Scott is also a great help! Very mellow and concise with what ever he needs. Thank you all for helping me to make my world a little easier, as we all have much to do to get our business on the right track!
When I began my certification training with HSR, I never could have imagined the amazing tools and instruction that are included with the certificate course. I hesitated for months trying to decide on the best course for my needs. I chose it with HSR. The endless forms that are included take all of the pressure away of starting a new business so I can concentrate on doing what I love. The beautiful and professional website that HSR has available has saved me probably weeks of set up if I were to do it myself. Audra is extremely detailed, knowledgeable in her field and an expert in the field of home staging.
The HSR certification training was invaluable to me as I begin my Home Staging Business. Audra has thought of absolutely everything a beginner would need to know . . . the business end of pricing, structure, and marketing all comes together in an easy to understand compilation of printed materials, forms and videos. It was so enjoyable to go through this course, and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of making Home Staging & ReDesign a future business. Well worth the cost. Loved it!
After researching home staging and redesign certifications for many hours and days, I kept coming back to Home Staging Resource. It was orderly, comprehensive and realistic. I knew I was not going to be able to offer my clients the best experience with just a weekend of official training. I wanted to know all the best practices and tricks of the trade! I have finished the training and now feel confident and prepared to take my first job. Thank You Audra!
Audra's HSR training was very thorough. I have a friend who trained with another company and did NOT get the amount of information, support, or any downloadable forms like what you get with Home Staging
I want to thank Audra for this amazing course! There is so much information and education provided that gives you the confidence to truly start and run your business successfully. From all the design materials and education to the complete forum of marketing and social media, I have truly gained a vast amount of knowledge which is helping me to prepare and launch with confidence a successful home staging and redesign career. I also did purchase the website through Home Staging Resources which I am very happy with. With the training included, it makes it very easy to get your site up and running and looking how you would like it too. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to go into the field of home staging or home redesign. Thank you!!
The Home Staging Resources, Audra Slinkey’s staging and redesign course, is extremely comprehensive! It contains an abundance of information about design, business models, marketing, and branding. There are multiple lists, how-to’s, photos, forms, and options for building my business. I will have everything I need to be successful -- no matter what the situation. In addition, the course provides wonderful resources to complement HSR’s material. Thank you, Audra, for being so complete in your training. I will go out equipped with more than enough to get started and will be able to refer back to training and sources as I expand and shape my business. –Lissa Raines
I have been very impressed by the training, it has met my needs and spoken my language. I'm grateful I have continued access for a year because I look forward to revisiting the content and sharpening my skills further.
I was hesitant on signing up for HSR certification. I am a home organizer that wanted to cross over into staging. I was overwhelmed at the detailed manual and probably took a little longer than most getting thru it. Audra makes this as detailed and as easy as possible. I am SO HAPPY that I made the decision to invest. I actually got my first job before finishing the certification - so it paid for itself! LOVE Audra and hope to meet her some day!
The HSR training I received is packed full of important and useful information, thoughtfully compiled and thoroughly planned out to consider the many facets of running a staging business. The most important aspects for me include how best to market your business for optimum success and the many business forms that help create the confidence needed in getting your business up and running quickly. Thank You, Audra!
The HSR training was excellent! I found the daily activities easy to follow from the computer along with the book. I found the design modules to be very thorough and helpful. I have completely set up my business and just need to continue marketing and doing my networking! I am very excited and would highly recommend this certification program to anyone who loves design, decor, and wants to obtain a future in this field of work!
Certification Credibility Counts!
The Home Staging Resource (HSR) staging certification program was the FIRST home staging and design training program to become "third-party" accredited by an independent trade association (RESA) back in 2009!
HSR has been serving the staging and redesign industry since 2005 and has an A+ rating by the BBB.
