Over 7,000 students in 21 countries!
Created by Debra Gould in late 2004, Staging Diva is a leader in home staging courses because of the focus on the business aspect of home staging.
No matter how talented you are, if you don’t understand the business and marketing required to make a living as a home stager, all you’ll have is a creative hobby.
You can read comments from some of our students from all over the US, Canada, Australia and 18 other countries. As you’ll see, they have learned how to make money from their creative talents because of the Staging Diva approach.
Many students are for the first time experiencing true independence or discovering how to take their innate decorating talent and turn it into a service that others will happily pay for.
Home Staging (also called House Fluffing, House Staging, Property Styling or Real Estate Staging) is a very creative business that combines the excitement of real estate with the appeal of helping people make more money when they sell their homes (and sell much faster than they would otherwise).
In other words, as a home stager, you also gain the satisfaction of making an important difference in your clients’ lives!
The Staging Diva home staging courses enable students to turn their passion for decorating into a profitable career while allowing them the flexibility to book client appointments around other demands. Unlike real estate agents, who are expected to be on call 24/7, home stagers don’t have to work evenings and weekends (unless they want to).
That’s why so many of our students are able to start their staging business on the side of another job, or while they’re raising their kids.
There are two formats available to take the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program. With both the home study kit and downloadable recordings, there is no need to travel. And all students are taught by Debra Gould, instead of having their training done by others with less direct experience of growing a successful home staging business.
