Before we start… It’s important for you to take a moment and think about your own business ambitions. Where do you see your Home-Staging company in 6 months, or a year, or even five years?

The evident dichotomy between ‘knowing’ vs ‘doing’ is a topic we could discuss for hours. --- Especially in our industry, it’s not uncommon that marketing comes last. Perhaps it’s because not many Property Stylists have the time, energy or resources to invest in creating actual and meaningful marketing campaigns, or there’s the possibility that they do not really appreciate the value of marketing. Either way, Cody and I (the [...]

Does Home Staging Actually Work?

Hello! I’m so happy to have you here, reading my very first blog post! I thought that a great way to break the ice would be for me to introduce myself and share with you the reasons that I started Foxy Home Staging. Who am I? My name is Phoebe. I married my partner in crime and best friend, Jake, in 2012 and we are the parents of two beautiful boys, two gorgeous dogs and a whingy cat.  We moved to Brisbane, Queensland, in 2005, looking for greener pastures, where Jake worked as a [...]
