- "I can use the info about staging rooms, so higher offers will be received....The instructor was very willing to help and very fast in responding to my questions. She was very knowledgeable also." -- Joyce C.
- "I really like the staging section, and I found the tips for showing your house with little time (an hour notice), extremely helpful, and used many of these in those situations. Most important tip was cutting branches & leaves from your backyard when you don't have time to run to the store to buy flowers; I almost liked it better, turned out great and only took a minute....I was very pleased with the instructor. She was always available, always had time to answer my questions, and found her own experiences with selling her home very helpful." -- Fran M.
- "Material inspiring. Being able to log on when it suited me was great, have 4 small kids and live in the west of Ireland. Very well laid out, will be using the methods learnt to sell 2 houses and hopefully build on this as a career." -- Martina S.
