Expect the Unexpected!
I love hearing the stories from our members as to why they decided to take our Home Staging and Redesign Certification course and where they’ve taken their business! What I find almost always is that it’s never exactly how they expected it to be. I recently got an email from Debbie O’Neill of Fine Design Home Staging (http://www.finedesignhomestaging.com) and laughed out loud…
My apologies for the late response. When you see what I have to share, you will understand why. When I first decided to enroll in your program, my thought was it would be fun and a great “side” career. I already work full time but I wanted an outlet for my creativity and to challenge myself with new goals.
Since mid March, 2013, I have staged 8 homes. Four out of the 6 homes for sale sold within two days that they were on the market. Two of the houses were model homes for a builder. All but one of the 6 homes had been vacant and on the market for a long period of time. One home I did a consultation and put the owner to work on two rooms that needed “help”. The owner rolled up her sleeves and implemented everything that I suggested. She received an offer the next day. My first job in March was with a builder who was looking for a local stager in the HSR Directory. Thus, I have continuous work to either stage one of their inventory homes or to stage their model homes. In addition, the builder has requested that I help them with their inventory and get organized! Another activity I love to do!It has been a whirlwind of projects and put my business into hyper drive. I have done no advertising except for about six SEO suggestions that you made in the training. Everyone that has found me has done so through their Google searching and commented on my professional looking website which HSR created. I received jobs before I even had a chance to update my website.
So that it is in a nutshell. I am learning as I go and am excited to learn more about the business.
Yep, sometimes the “unexpected” can happen but it’s obvious to see from Debbie’s work below that her talent is undeniable!
Great job Debbie!
XOXO – Happy Staging!
Hope to hear from you!
