"I believe each house has a soul, an essence that one connects with. I have a passion for decorating and designing which began when I was a child. I would drive my parents …
“The Staging Diva Program was worth every single penny! I made it all back in my very first staging job. And, I would have never had the confidence to charge what I do to make the profit that I’ve been making on my current jobs.

Home Staging Is a Great Career, Full-Time or Part-Time
Before opening her home staging business, Staging Diva Graduate Jodi Whalen of Pear Tree Home Designs in New Jersey was a Marketing Director at the Food Network. Now that she works as a home stager, this mother of two active toddlers has much more control over her schedule.
Although she works part-time, Jodi has tripled her home staging income every year since she started. Plus, she’s helping her clients achieve dramatic results, both aesthetically and financially.
Here’s what Jodi had to say after completing a massive home staging project:
“Pear Tree Home Designs recently staged a large 4-bedroom Tudor style home from top to bottom. The homeowners had not touched a thing since the day they moved in. The home needed fresh paint throughout the house, an updated kitchen, and each room needed a breath of fresh air.”
“It was on the market for 3.5 weeks and sold for 95% of its asking price. Competitive homes in the area were sitting for a minimum of 6-9 months!”
“I am thrilled to be a Staging Diva Graduate and I love that I can help people sell the most expensive asset they own so they can move onto the next phase in their life.”
