Home Staging Resource

Home Staging Resource - About HSR

The Home Staging Resource (HSR) was launched in July of 2006 by Audra Slinkey who is the creator and President of the HSR Training. 

Audra started the 21-Day, HSR Certification training after being a home stager (she owns Staging San Diego to this day), and seeing that there was no viable, training options available at the time that truly taught a successful business and marketing model for stagers to follow.

Pioneering Online HSR Training

Since most people back in 2006 had never even heard of the term "home staging" there was no Yellow Page category for it and the only way a home stager could market themselves credibly would be online.  Audra's background was Internet marketing and online training to Fortune 500 companies, so she knew A LOT about getting seen and appearing credible online! As an expert at staging, design, color and internet marketing, the combination serves HSR graduates well and is the reason why she has the highest success rate of students!   The majority of the RESA award winning stagers are HSR Grads.

Audra's passion is helping those with a gift in design start a successful business!  She is proud to say she has personally mentored over 4000 successful, small staging businesses within the industry! 

Since there's so much to know in this industry, having online training vs classroom is essential!  You need to be able to hit the "rewind" button to truly absorb the training material...in a classroom, you can't do that.

HSR was the first RESA Accredited Staging Training back in 2009!
