Karen Otto completes another home staging training course in Plano, TX

Karen Otto, owner of Home Star Staging in Plano, TX, has just completed another hands-on home staging training course. The class did an amazing job. Now, they have the confidence to begin their career as a home stager and the portfolio to begin building their website and marketing materials. When the house sells, they will also have initial statistics and testimonials.

The fundamentals of this course are taught online. After the student have completed their online home staging training, they go in the field and work with one of our successful staging business owners and learn hands-on. They can then follow up with 4 1-hr mentoring sessions. To make sure they always have access to good advice, they have unlimited and unexpiring access to our Private Facebook group where they can discuss anything.

Our course helps build successful home stagers one step at a time, at their own pace.

    So proud to have worked with Linda on this project. There is nothing quite like the experience of staging your first property. The “before” photos will tell the story but this end product in photos will finish the book with a successful sale!

    Photos were taken by Lance Selgo with Unique Exposure Photography too.!

    Karen, the transformation on this job is totally amazing! I really had to go slow when looking at all the after photos because the rooms looked so much bigger after the superb job done on this home. I thought I was looking at the wrong house but no, it was the same home shown on the “before staging” photographs. Beautifully done. Congratulations and I hope you can make some room for me on your schedule if and when I decide to sell my house in Florida. Your creativity goes beyond expectations.
