“The Staging Diva Training Program transformed my way of thinking about the business of home staging. I was formerly trained by two other 3-day staging programs. In fact, I was even a teacher for one of them!
But the staging pricing model was wrong in those other programs. It kept me stuck, trudging up a difficult hill wondering why I wasn’t making real money as a home stager.
It wasn’t until Debra Gould explained home staging consulting and billing correctly, that I was able to shift into higher home staging income levels.”— Jill Gargus-Turgeon (AB)*Simply Irresistible Interiors Inc.
“The first home I staged was on the market 3 months and sold two days after I staged it for an open house. My client was thrilled!

The common sense approach in her training and Debra’s experience in the business world are invaluable. I’m encouraged by her blog and email as Debra continues to reach out to Staging Diva Grads. Her enthusiasm is catchy!”— Katie Mines (NE)*Sweet Villa Home Staging

“The Staging Diva Program taught me many secrets about home staging consultations— especially how to charge, and have no inventory.

“I hemmed and hawed for 2 years about leaving my job of over 10 years. I finally made the commitment to do something I loved, rather than a job I felt I was supposed to do. Boy that was a hard decision!
Within a few months I staged my first house and earned more in 10 days than I would have working a whole month in my previous career! Plus, my client got an offer within a day, what a thrill!
Staging Diva provides priceless information that would have taken me years to understand on my own!”— Melissa Goulet (ON)*In The Details Home Staging

I’m totally ready to help people sell their homes and get on with their lives.”— Imogen Brown (AU)*Home Staging Brisbane
“I’ve made more money working part time in 10 months as a stager than I used to make all year in my full time job as a manager.
Plus I can home school my boys in the mornings and work my staging business in the afternoons. I work my own hours, set my schedule and my sons get a first-hand look at running a business.
I hope that hearing about the courage I found to follow my dream will inspire them to follow theirs, and to know that anything is possible!”— Laura Kakoschke (AB)*Hunter Lake Homes

“Debra’s knowledge and expertise on how to start a home staging business have inspired me.
As a seasoned Real Estate Agent who already staged clients homes, I believe this is a great business to be in.
I am moving my dream of staging homes into a separate business because Debra taught me how in the Staging Diva Program. Thank you Debra!”— Leslie Manson (BC)*Staging Homes by Leslie
“I spent months researching staging courses and almost took a very expensive course from a high-profile provider.
I was confident in my ability to stage as I had successfully done several homes for friends. What I really needed to learn was how to run a profitable staging business. That’s when I searched for business training and found Staging Diva instead.
Debra has a simple, logical, and effective business model. From my first paying job, I had all the information I needed to come across as an experienced pro. I’ve used her business model for over 12 years with great success.”— Susan Atwell (NY)*AtWell Staged Home

— Marie Murebwayire (ON)*3Rs Home Staging
“Debra, your Ultimate Portfolio Guide is fantastic!! Everyone interested in the business of home staging should read it. You have a great writing style that puts the reader at ease. I especially liked how you went into detail about how to take perfect photos.
Your Guide is not only helpful to home stagers but to Realtors who take listing photos. As I scan through the hundreds of homes for sale in my county alone, I am shocked at the photos that are representing them.
Congratulations on a great addition to your Staging Diva collection of guides.”— Laura Jensen (WI)*Lakeshore Home Staging & Redesign
“I give the Staging Diva Program rave reviews. Definitely a 10 on a scale of 1 to 5!
I was really put at ease by Debra Gould’s warm, friendly and caring demeanor— before, during and after the courses.

“I’m celebrating my 5th anniversary as a home stager. This year I completed 38 staging and redesign projects, appeared on TV and had my first month with earnings of $7,000!
All of these successes are a result of carrying out Debra’s ideas and recommendations and the home staging business model she shares in the Staging Diva Program.
Staging Diva offers a wealth of materials and is the reason my self-confidence and self-assurance have blossomed these past 5 years.”— Stacy Goade (AK)*Alaska Premier Home Staging
“Thank you Debra for being an innovator and leader in the home staging field!
The Staging Diva Program saved me a ton of trial and error. Your courses addressed the issues I’d been wrestling with like furniture inventory, redecorating during a consultation, alliances and more.
There’s a lot out there that’s really nowhere near the calibre of where the home staging and interior redesign industry can go. Debra, thanks for doing this business justice.”— Lisa Tharp (MA)*Lisa Tharp Inc.
“I like the flow and feel of the Business Name Handbook. It’s concise and very useful for helping us position ourselves for success.
Debra shares her personal story about growing her own staging business in each section. It makes the points easily relatable.
I was pulled along on the journey to a more successful result, absorbing the information like a sponge!”— Donna Doperoy (OR)*Staged For Sale LLC
“I loved the Staging Diva Program! I was skeptical about the format at first, but it was great. The notes were concise and easy to follow. Students asked questions I was wondering about myself, and Debra is clear and direct.
I’m confident in my decorating abilities, but wasn’t sure how to run a professional and profitable staging business. Debra walks you through the entire process.”— Deborah Brischler (CA)*Home Staging Solutions
“The room-by-room planning forms that come with the home staging checklist have made a huge difference with one client already.
Her home needed lots of attention and your forms saved us tons of time during the consultation. My client is going through the document to be sure she gets everything done before my final staging.”— Pat McArthur (ON)*Home Definition
“Everything I heard about Staging Diva was true. I really checked out the program by researching on the internet and contacting people who had taken Debra’s home staging courses.
The Staging Diva Program is a very motivational and practical training program for starting a staging business.
Debra is very entertaining and inspiring to listen to. I’ve hit the ground running thanks to her program.”— Debra Rosser (TX)*The Staging Matters
“I had my first staging job before I even finished the Staging Diva Training Program. And my second project just 3 days later!
I could have spent years trying to figure out through trial and error what I learned in these home staging courses.
Debra offers practical advice, keeping things simple and straight forward. Plus, continued support and interest in my success.”— Diane Beck (PA)*Vibrant Interiors
“Debra, congratulations on creating such an empowering global platform, with Staging Diva, to share your success and knowledge with so many like-minded entrepreneurs and home stagers.
In a world where many operate from a mindset of scarcity and competitiveness – it is so refreshing to share, learn and grow with someone who thinks from a place of abundance.
I’m so inspired and I am excited to start Debra!”— Gabrielle Schifano (AB)*Gabrielle Schifano Design & Co.
“The Staging Diva Program is fantastic! I wish I had found it before completing a different home staging course. The program provided me with valuable business information that the other course lacked.
I am very impressed with Debra Gould. It is quite evident that she is honest and ethical in all her dealings with her students and clients, and that’s #1 in my books.
She truly has become my mentor!”— Monique Milne (MB)*Milne Well Dressed Homes (MB)
“The Staging Diva Ultimate Color Guide cuts down on the overwhelming color choices and gets down to what really works for home staging.
Great information on how to introduce wall color to clients. They can be resistant to change, but Debra gives you step-by-step information on how to suggest the best possible solution to attract the greatest number of buyers.”— Ofelia Doherty (CA)*
“I took 2 other staging programs before I discovered Debra Gould. Definitely take the Staging Diva Program BEFORE you take any other staging course. I LOVE Debra’s program and that it’s based on real life. She offers great insight and is extremely helpful.
You will be able to get your business up and running without having to take anything else! Debra provides all the information necessary plus ongoing support so you don’t feel you are going it alone. I highly recommend the Staging Diva Program! It gave me the confidence I needed to start my staging business.”— Frances Hudye (AB)*Francesca Interiors
“I love that I’m pursuing a career that pays me to be creative, rather than spending my time working for someone else.
Plus, I have the freedom to be available to my family when they need me.
The Staging Diva Program filled in all the questions that I still had after completing another ‘hands on’ program. Thank you Debra, I now have the confidence to build my staging business.”— Tracie Lacroix (BC)*Sold by Design
“It’s been a pleasure taking the Staging Diva Courses. I felt as if I were right there with you while listening to the course recordings and I could listen to them on my own schedule. Thanks for being such an incredible support throughout my journey into this new career! Even though we haven’t met in person, I feel as if I’ve known you for years.
That $600,000 property I staged sold to the first couple that looked at it after I was done. It had been listed for 65 days with no offers.
The Realtor is absolutely sold on staging now and will be recommending me to the other 60 agents in her office. Debra, thank you for all your help and encouragement as I build my home staging business.”— Gary Baugher (TN)*An Eye 4 Change
“Both my partner and I appreciate your honesty and admire your style! I like that you approach home staging as a business and not as a cute women’s hobby.
The Staging Diva Program is much more realistic and logical. It helps prepare people for the realities of running their own business while making it very specifically about home staging.
We had been in business almost a year before taking your program and we weren’t disappointed. Our business has gone from “nothing” to being called consistently by clients and Realtors in our area.
Thank you for all your support and we look forward to doing more with you in the future!”— Heather Cook (ON)*Rooms In Bloom
“I finished the 5 course training and I learned so much. Some things Debra reaffirmed that I was doing the right things, and some things were totally out of the box for me and wonderful ideas. I do not have a background in marketing, and she really helped me there!
FABULOUS TRAINING! Totally worth every minute spent working through the courses and homework!
I feel energized and confident. I should have done the training a year ago. I am so psyched to get out there full force!”— Jill Monczunski (MI)*Staging To Sell LLC
“Debra Gould is a godsend! Her experience, professionalism, confidence in the home staging industry, and ‘to the point’ teaching style is all I needed to jumpstart a profession I had been thinking about getting into for months.
I knew Debra was there for me as I launched my dream career, and her faith and enthusiasm is immeasurable. Without the Staging Diva Program, I probably would have never gotten started, or I would have failed miserably.
Thank you, Debra, for inspiring me to get out there and do it!”— Lisa Kleino (MI)*Perfect Fit Home Staging
“I knew I had a flare for decorating, I have been doing it for years for friends and family and for my own properties.
But, I had no idea how to run a staging business, what the appropriate amount to charge was, how to conduct an assessment of the client over the phone before going to their home, etc.
This training program cleared up all of these questions, also making me aware of things that I had not even thought of. I give the Staging Diva Program 5 stars!”— Margie Mokhiber (NY)*MAM Development Inc
“The Staging Diva Business Training Program is worth every penny!
While there are other home staging courses out there, I’m so happy I follow the business model Debra teaches in her program. It is specific, concise, and thoroughly explained.
In addition to her courses, Debra offers SO many supplemental materials that are incredibly helpful too. The community of Staging Diva Graduates is another bonus, as we all support each other and share each other’s wins.”— Cristin Lyons (NC)*Raleigh Staging & Design
“After I spent the same amount of money on a different course that was misleading in its advertising, the Staging Diva Training Program was everything I expected and more.”— Isabel Singh (QC)*Immobilior

It’s obvious Debra really cares about your business and its success!”— Francesca Mahoney (NC)*Creekhill Designs, LLC
“You have laid out a strategy to make this career so much more enjoyable! Showing me how to avoid falling into the paperwork trap alone is really priceless!
I paid big dollars previously for another company’s training and it left so many blank spots.
The Staging Diva Program answered all my lingering questions in an entertaining way and prepared me to finally start my staging business. This is the best investment I ever made in becoming a home stager.”— Linda Borghi (MO)*Dazzle Home Staging
“I ordered the mailed-to-your-door version of the Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program.
I’ve been listening to the course CDs while driving and I find when I reach my destination I don’t want to get out of the car! So much to learn, but I feel getting to listen while on the road is a good way to prime me for my home studies.
Many thanks for the Staging Diva Program, I look forward to going through each step!”— Mary Zalewski (OH)*Tastefully Staged
“The only money I SPENT to start my successful staging business of 5 years was on the complete Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program back at the beginning.
I used the marketing methods Debra teaches to get my first staging projects (which more than paid for my training).
From those projects I took great pictures and was off and running from referrals. So, my experience has been to put a lot of effort into my business, rather than money.”— Patricia Ebrahimi (MD)*Show Smart Home Staging
“The Staging Diva Training Program helped so much with setting up my business and having the confidence to think like a home stager. I can finally follow my dream of having a creative career that I look forward to every day.
I’m almost 63, so it’s never too late to start!
I quit my full-time job and now I have the freedom to schedule my time for once in my life. I’m finally doing what I love and getting paid for it.”— Robin Weflen (PA)*Round Table Home Staging
“I just got paid $9,500 for a redesign project. Debra it is unbelievable, I never thought I could get paid this much for decorating. I was just all smiles the whole day because I feel like I got paid to play!
And while choosing furniture for my current project, I met a different couple in the store and helped them choose the right artwork and lamps for their place. It turns out they just renovated and because they liked the ideas I shared in the store, they want me to do their whole house! Isn’t that amazing?!
Honestly, the $1300 I spent for the Staging Diva Program is by far the best purchase ever. I am still in shock with the turn of events with my new company and so excited for more things to come!”— Red Barrinuevo (ON)*ReDesign4More
“I purchased the program believing that once I made the purchase and received the package, that would be the end of Debra Gould.
Needless to say I was wrong! Debra is very in tune with her students, and she knows who is struggling. When I thought that starting my own business might be too much, Debra kept me inspired and never gave up on me. I did not just get a staging course, I got a mentor.
Thank you Debra for all you have done to keep me motivated. I highly recommend the program.”— Stephanie Joe (AZ)*Simply Neat
“I graduated from the Staving Diva Training Program in June. While navigating a busy full time job, I staged 3 homes all with success, maximizing clients’ return on investment and minimizing days on the market!
I’m excited to be involved in home staging, and amalgamate my passion for home decor, shopping and helping others. I’m thrilled to hear the clients excitement: ‘I can’t believe the transformation, I love my house, you’re a visionary, and you are in the right line of work!’.
One client received an offer and letter indicating how much the buyer loved the home, and another buyer couldn’t sleep because his wife wouldn’t settle for any other house! It’s amazing to see how that emotional connection works!
Even without rental furniture, the transformations were still amazing.
Thanks Debra Gould for your enthusiasm and guidance! Your Staging Diva Home Staging Training Program has given me a great foundation to build upon! Looking forward to what the future has in store.”— Beverly Gooding (ON)*Beautiful Spaces
“I had my first staging job before I finished the program and I listened to the course recordings to coach me through. Not only were the homeowners thrilled, they said that working with me was transformational. I couldn’t have received a higher compliment.
I have known for a long time that I wanted my own business and that it would involve interior design of some sort. Once I settled on home staging, I got stuck looking for a road map until I found Staging Diva.
I knew almost instantly that I would use Staging Diva Training as my guide because of Debra’s statement that she didn’t need to tell us how to rearrange furniture; she needs to teach us how to take our innate ability to rearrange furniture and turn it into a profitable business.
It was smart, direct and exactly what I needed. Little did I know that Debra would become my most trusted adviser and one of my biggest cheerleaders!”— Lori Fischer (PA)*Rethink Home Interiors (PA)
“Being able to consider starting a staging business with so many questions already answered almost feels as if I’m cheating! The Staging Diva Program addresses the unknowns before we even encounter them. As a “planner” I greatly appreciate having the knowledge to overcome hurdles before I get to them!
There is so much information included in the home staging courses that I know I’ll be re-visiting the material, just to see what I missed the first time. I am an apprehensive person when it comes to new beginnings, but I believe with this information I will be ready to take the leap into staging!
The Staging Diva Program helped me envision myself in the role of a home stager by sharing scenarios and questions of actual stagers instead of just listing the steps one needs to take to get started.
This program allowed me to learn from the knowledge, and mistakes, of seasoned home stagers by suggesting HOW to do something, and WHY to do it that way. I found it extremely beneficial to have Debra Gould’s expertise paired with the input of others from around the world. As we all know, knowledge is empowering!”— Jane DeVine (GA)*
“Prior to taking the Staging Diva Program, I was an Interior Designer struggling to make it with the onset of the housing collapse. I was desperate to get out of the troubled retail end of design.
Someone mentioned I try my hand at home staging and I found Staging Diva. Debra gave me the courage to start my own interior design business specializing in home staging.
For anyone wondering if the investment in Staging Diva will be worth it, I say ‘Go for it’!”— Linda Scaglione (CA)*The Savvy Stager
“I always dreamed of having my own staging business but didn’t know how to go about it.
Reading reviews from students who were thriving as home stagers after taking the Staging Diva Training Program, I knew I was in the right place.
Debra gave me a blueprint for success, equipping me with all the tools I need to proceed with confidence and integrity.
I always knew I was born to stage, and now I am living my dream. My only regret is not taking this program sooner!”— Annie DiBernardo (FL)*Pygmalion Home Staging & Redesign
The Staging Diva Program showed me how to correctly establish my business and it taught me how to talk to clients with more confidence. It also helped in my pricing structure, website, social media and marketing.
Becoming a property stylist has allowed me to use my creativity working from home while also raising two young children. I am really passionate about my business and helping homeowners sell their property quickly. Plus this staging business allows me to structure my work around my busy family life.— Katrina Gibbons (AU)*Stylus Home Staging
“At first, I was hesitant to invest in the full Staging Diva Home Staging Business Training Program. But it is worth every dollar! It is an easy to follow course which gets you to the point where you are simply desperate to start your business because you know exactly what to do.
I felt VERY inspired taking the Staging Diva Program. The discussions about the pricing strategy and how to decide when to switch to a full-time business especially helped a lot.
I also love the Ultimate Portfolio Guide, the Ultimate Design Guide and the Staging Diva Sales Script. They are so comprehensive!”— Claudia Manighetti (Zurich, Switzerland)*HOME STAGING Claudia Manighetti

Debra inspired and pushed me. It’s all thanks to her and her amazing training that 4 years later, I still get excited every day as I head off to work that I absolutely love.
I really do laugh out loud when I’m driving to a styling job, because I still can’t quite believe I get to do this for a living!”— Karen Pinkerton (AU)*Artisan Home Staging
“I contemplated starting a staging business for a year before I finally took the plunge and purchased the Staging Diva Training Program. It’s been 10 days since I purchased it, and I have done more in those 10 days than the last year!
I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business. After suffering from a severe case of career burnout, I decided I had to make a change.
Once I made the choice to start my business, I realized I didn’t know where to start. I think back to all the questions and uncertainties I had when I started out.
After thinking about it for months, I finally purchased the Staging Diva Training Program. Debra’s training and support have given me the confidence and drive to overcome challenges, move forward and follow my dream.”— Cari Calhoun (MN)*Destiny by Design
I wholeheartedly encourage anyone to invest in this program. I took the Staging Diva courses because, while I was confident in my design talent, I had absolutely no business sense. None. Zero! And that had kept me from starting any business my entire adult life.
Now, at 45 years of age, I finally feel like I can make this happen.
Debra is always there to answer my questions and there is also a huge, supportive Staging Diva Network of home stagers (and soon-to-be stagers) who are ready to assist, and empathize along with you!— Melissa Ross (CO)*Modest Muse Home Staging & Interior Redesign

“I had only listened to the first 3 courses (while commuting to my day job), when I got my first home staging consultation. I felt so well prepared and had them eating out of the palm of my hand using Debra’s tips.
I couldn’t stop smiling at the end and had to resist the urge to skip back to my car, in case the clients were watching from their doorway. Nothing I have ever done has given me such an elated feeling. The Staging Diva Program is amazing!”— Katherine James (ON)*Set Sale and Go Home Staging
“I loved the Business Name Handbook! This wonderful resource provides a wealth of information that went beyond what I expected.
It not just about how to pick a business name that perfectly reflects you, it’s about building your business identity and your future! It even gave me a great idea for what to put on my business card.
This Handbook is so helpful since the first steps of starting a business can seem so daunting. Debra makes everything clear and simple.”— Mary Ann Benoit (AK)*Northern Lights Home Staging and Design
“The Staging Diva audio recordings for the home staging courses provide lots of information. Debra’s discussions with her students are insightful for anyone wanting to own a staging business.

“Wow! I took the Staging Diva Program and loved it! Debra’s course helped me avoid so many mistakes and really motivated me to get things going.
If I hadn’t taken the program, I would have made this business much more complicated for myself, and I would have never charged what I’m worth.
Staging Diva gave me the courage to go forward with confidence, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to get started on the right track.”— Melanie Bailey (PA)*Melanie Bailey Interiors
“I just didn’t know that there was a business that I could put my creativity and my love for interior design together.

“The Staging Diva Program is one of the best investments I ever made. Within days of completing the courses, Debra sent me a great client in my area.
I researched many programs, before choosing Staging Diva.
Debra’s invaluable course recordings and notes cover every detail of the business of home staging, and she’s so inspiring to listen to.”— Jeanette Cataldo (MA)*Cataldo Interiors
“I had no idea when I sold my home that I was actually staging it! After selling the first day over asking, and then helping friends decorate their homes to sell, I realized I could have a home staging career.
But I didn’t know how to make that happen. I needed to get serious and learn as much about staging as possible. That’s where the Staging Diva Program came into play.
Staging Diva is everything I could’ve hoped for and more. It showed me the way to get paid for something I’ve always had a passion for. I’m beyond excited! Thank you Debra for helping me turn my talents into such a great home staging career.”— Carrie McCampbell (WA)*Carrie McCampbell Design
“I researched various home staging courses over the past two years. Most cost thousands of dollars and a time commitment of a week of travel, away from home and family.
I knew my search was complete when I found the Staging Diva. Debra Gould spoke my language. Her realistic approach to staging, along with her approachable style sold me!
I listened to the Staging Diva course recordings on my own time schedule, from the comfort of my home. Debra is an invaluable source of information, education and inspiration.
My goal was to have a job that I loved. The Staging Diva Program gave me the structure and know-how to create a business and make it work. With the program’s help I now have an outlet for my creative juices and a job I love.”— Dolly DeWald (NE)*D3 Dolly Dewald Designs
Enrolling in the Staging Diva Program was one of the best investments I have ever made.
Before I heard of Staging Diva I almost enrolled in a 3-day, hands on class that cost double. I wouldn’t have learned the business side from them. You can know how to stage a home all you want, but knowing how to get paid for your services is the most important part.
By the end of the fifth Staging Diva Course, I had everything completed and in place to start my business.
Thank you Debra for inspiring, motivating, and giving me confidence in the marketing and business-end of home staging.”— Michelle Aleff (MN)*Design 2 Sell
