Nora Lakey’s story should be enough encouragement for anyone on the fence about becoming a home stager to go for it.
Nora wrote to tell me she had finally completed the final course of the Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program and shared her amazing success story with me.
Last June, Nora started taking the Staging Diva courses, one at a time. Since then (before even graduating from the program) her company Presentation by Design Staging Services has staged an astonishing 38 properties. Not only that, Nora was invited to participate in a real estate commercial explaining the advantages of home staging. That free marketing opportunity led to many jobs for Nora but her success story doesn’t stop there.
Nora was also invited to speak to a group of 70 real estate agents this month which resulted in several referrals and an invitation to speak to the group again! She’s now busy putting together a presentation of before and after photos to share with the same agents next month.
“It all began last year with a DREAM and Debra Gould’s Staging Diva Course #1,” states Nora. She added, “The dream has now moved out in front of me and I’m now trying to slow it down! I know I still have much to learn but I’m so glad Debra is only a keystroke away.”
I absolutely love hearing stories like this. If you’ve taken the Staging Diva courses and have a home staging success story of your own, please email me and I’ll write a story like this about you to give your business even more exposure.
