My mission is to inspire and empower others to discover new opportunities to live the life of their dreams.

Homeowners earn extra money when they sell their homes making new experiences possible in their lives.

Some travel, others write that book they've always dreamed of. Divorcing couples are sometimes left with enough after their home sale for both parties to make a down payment on separate homes. Another client who suffered a serious stroke was able to pay for the care she needed.

Staging Diva Graduates get the tools they need to start and grow their own home staging business in a profitable and creatively satisfying way.

For many, it's their first opportunity to combine their passion for decorating with a desire to run their own business.

About Debra Gould, The Staging Diva*

After buying, decorating and selling 6 of her own homes in only 8 years, Debra Gould realized she had an innate talent for decorating a house to sell for top dollar.

Switching gears from the successful marketing consulting business she had grown over 10 years catering to some of the largest corporations and ad agencies in North America, Debra started Six Elements Inc. in the fall of 2002, offering Home Staging, Interior Redesign and Color Consulting services.

Debra gained international recognition for her new role within two short years with appearances on HGTV, Toronto 1, CBC National News, Life Channel, GlobalTV, CityTV and in numerous magazines and newspapers in both the US and Canada. Since that time she has been featured in most major media across North America.

"As color conscious as Matisse" Boulevard Magazine

"Debra Gould, president of Six Elements Inc., specializes in making for-sale properties more attractive" The Wall Street Journal

It could be due to Debra's MBA, her more than 20 years in marketing, or the fact that she's been an entrepreneur since 1989; but regardless of whether she's turning a client's home into a "hot property", or training others to open their own staging business— she brings a refreshing pragmatism balanced with creative sensitivity to any task.

Debra Gould chats with Global TV's  Anne-Marie Mediwake

Debra Gould, The Staging Diva interviewed about real estate staging by news anchor Anne-Marie Mediwake on Global TV News.

"I couldn't have imagined that just moving our furniture and art around would get us three offers after we sat on the market for 6 weeks! Our agent wanted us to drop our price $50,000, but thanks to your house fluffing we got 98% of our original price!"

John W., Kingsway *

"Debra's truly transformative Home Staging skills managed to change every room in my house using only my existing furniture and accessories. Suddenly there was space and flow that didn't exist before."

Paula Eng, Aurora *

"Using your Home Staging ideas, we got 5 offers by the end of the first week of showings and sold for $71,000 over our list price. Thanks for giving us the push to do the major things. It really paid off!"
