Urban PresentationsUrban Presentations has been growing steadily for the past five years -- and it all started with PRES! Both Jennifer and I had both researched the various home staging courses available. We both wanted to take accredited and professional courses. This is what set the PRES course apart from the others:

* Amazing, professional course materials that covered everything from design principles to marketing strategies

* The intensive 5 day course program with 3 full days training; staging actual homes for clients

* And foremost; PRES trainer's own infectious enthusiasm and professionalism. Trainer, Dana Smithers always made herself available as a mentor us and encouraged professional development and personal growth.

For these reasons we both choose PRES, took her wonderful course and it was definitely the right first step on the path to owning our own successful staging business. Thank you PRES!
