G'day Foxy friends! I’m Laura - the newest face here at Foxy Home Staging! I began working at Foxy two weeks ago and I’m loving it! But before I get too excited and jump straight in, let me first tell you a bit about what my job is here, because it’s a little different to what you might initially think. Officially, my role is digital marketer and content writer, but as I quickly learnt on my very first day, I’m also an assistant stylist and removalist, soon-to-be expert car packer (I do love a game of tetris!), and [...]

First Week Working For A Home Staging Company

Hi Foxy friends, Cici here! Let me tell you about my first week working at Foxy as a digital marketer and content writer.  Being friends with Eva, I knew a little bit about what Foxy did and how the process sort of worked, however, no one could have predicted what was going to happen for that first week. I already knew that I would be joining one of the stylists with an installation then following up with a trip in the truck with Cody and Russ. A full day out and about in Brisbane to see what Foxy [...]

By |2022-01-21T13:22:16+10:00January 21st, 2022|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging|

Can you believe it’s the end of January already? Having started 2022 with only half of the Foxy crew on board (thanks Covid!) was definitely not what we were expecting, but I’m proud to say that the team has absolutely smashed it! It would also explain why this month has totally flown by for all of us here. --- Now that we have some more hands on deck, it has given us an opportunity to pause and reflect on last year and review all the wins and lessons it brought along. While Phoebe & Jake discussed all things business-growth [...]

Home-Staging Consultations | Step by Step

By |2021-08-27T12:49:38+10:00August 27th, 2021|Business of Staging|

Every Home-Staging business owner has their own unique internal process when it comes to organising their workflow. For most of us, a consultation with the vendor is usually the very first step. There are many different ways you can approach a consultation from the business point of view, and we are not here to preach what is right or wrong. The method we have instilled in our business has worked really well for us, so we’ve decided to share our entire Consultation Process with the hope to help other Home Stagers. We sincerely hope that you can get some [...]

Stylist Spotlight | Meet Cassie

By |2021-08-16T17:31:55+10:00August 16th, 2021|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging|

Meet Cassie! Meet Cassie, our longest employee! Her signature smile (seriously, have you seen how white her teeth are?!), kind nature and organised work ethic will make you fall in love with her faster than she can say “Cuuuuuuute!”. Which, if you ask anyone at Foxy, she says all the time. Cass divides her styling career into “pre-P” and “post-P” times, with “P” being her adorable baby girl Penelope, who is just so… what’s the word I’m looking for… cuuuuuuuute! Cassie is now back in a part-time capacity at 3 days a week, which Cam [...]

Our Selection Process From Start to Finish | + FREE Downloadables

Not sure if other Property Stylists can relate to this, but we get this all the time: “Oh my gosh, you work for a Home-Staging company, that must be such a fun and easy job!”  Fun – yes! 100%! It is a lot of fun and we love the creative aspect of it, BUT… it is by no means easy. Most people don’t get to see the volume of work going on behind the scenes and just how much thinking, strategic planning and scheduling needs to happen to make their homes ready for a successful sale. Home Staging is [...]

2 Things Our Stylists Never Leave the Warehouse Without

By |2021-10-07T15:00:39+10:00December 8th, 2020|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging|

Whoever says the wallet keys phone triple pocket tap is not a part of their ‘leaving-the-house routine’ is either lying… or wearing a handbag. But even myself, as a living woman (Bunnings Karen video, anyone?), I always do the handbag tap-tap as I’m about to walk out and don’t leave the house until I confirm all three items are present. Our stylists have a similar routine, but instead of Phone, Wallet, Keys – it’s: 1) Steamer 2) Install Bucket It’s not usually a pocket tap-tap [...]

How to Style Your Home for Sale: Choosing the Right Style

By |2020-10-27T08:10:24+10:00October 26th, 2020|Behind The Scenes, Business of Staging, Home Staging Tips, Selling Your Home|

How Do You Determine Which Style to Choose? This is a great question and one we get quite often. Let's dig in. For Home Stagers - getting the style right is of paramount importance. It can mean the difference between someone selling their house or not.  After all, these people entrusted us with their livelihoods, which is a responsibility we don’t take lightly. That’s why we always exercise a fair amount of due diligence and look at each property individually. Every house is unique, and everyone’s situation is different, which means there is no simple answer. But we can [...]
