Interview With: David Tippens of Mobile, AL

What did you like most about the course?

The Home Staging Course I just completed was a great educational experience for me. It was filled with an easy to follow video presentation format with practical explanations of each subject being discussed.

What was your biggest takeaway from the course?

I have watched many HGTV programs and read many articles, but didn't have a clear vision or the confidence to offer "professional" advice to my clients. I now believe I see a more complete picture of staging a home from beginning to end.

What actions did you take from applying what you learned in the course?

I am also an investor and have recreated standards based on the information I got out of the material.

What results did you create from applying what you learned?

I have applied techniques I learned on 3 properties so far. An investment property I own sold within a month of staging it - I was only in the middle of the course! The 2nd listing I recently took has been getting plenty of activity, and the 3rd is scheduled to close in a few weeks.

If you would recommend the course to others, please express why with a few words:

I can now confidently offer the services of an Accredited Home Staging Specialist and really believe it will help me to close more listings.

If you could learn about or master one additional skill to help you as an agent, what would it be?

Short Sales.
