Fiona Walker is not a typical home stylist. Twelve months ago, she jumped into the deep end of property home staging and in March this year, officially left her full time job.
Fiona enjoys watching AFL, lazy Sunday afternoons on the back verandah with a glass of wine and a good book, and motorcycle riding, that is, when she is not busy upgrading her own home and styling her clients homes.
“To be honest I had never thought of myself as very creative,” Fiona said, “18 months ago I was asked my a new manager at work what would i want to be doing in two jobs from now and i blurted out ‘well I’d really like to help people dress up their properties to sell’ – and I guess that started me thinking that I should give it a go”.
Fiona’s favourite part of home staging is getting to see the transformation at the end of the process, and knowing that you’ve really made a difference for the vendors and their property sale. “At my last job the vendor gave me a big hug when I was done, she was so excited with the end result!”
“I’ve learned a lot along the way, and I didn’t have everything perfectly planned before I started, but that doesn’t matter! Don’t let that stop you from getting out there and giving it a go!”
