CSP Instructor Profile

Instructor Profile – Diane Hamel
Diane Hamel – Hamel's Staged to Sell

Diane has enjoyed a long career in home decor retail, advertising, education management, event planning, fundraising, health care, public relations and small group mentorship.

Shortly after the staging and subsequent highly successful sale of their family home in a slowing real estate market, Diane was searching for a new career path. Her research led her to the Certified Staging Professionals Training Academy, the only RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) Accredited Classroom Training Program, and a brand new business opportunity as the owner of Hamel's Staged to Sell in Chilliwack, BC!

Now as a Certified Staging Professional, Certified Color Consultant, Occupied Staging Specialist and Certified Staging Professionals Mentor, Diane has expanded her horizons yet again by becoming a Certified Staging Professionals Instructor. Diane says, "For most of the past 35 years I have been involved in one form or another in small group leadership and mentorship. When I was selected by Christine Rae to become a CSP Instructor, it felt like a perfect fit! Now I can join my love of teaching in a small group setting with my passion for real estate staging. It is so rewarding to pass on the knowledge available through the CSP program to up and coming staging entrepreneurs!"

Diane received a Top 10 Stager Award (Canada-Occupied) at the annual RESA 2016 Convention in Las Vegas. She was also featured as a speaker at the August 2016 RESACANADA Convention in Mississauga.

As a business owner, Diane derives great satisfaction from providing her clients with real life solutions to their real estate marketing challenges. "Being in on the ground floor of real estate staging, one of the fastest growing industries in North America, brings me a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction. As I build my business, instruct the next generation of Certified Staging Professionals and educate real estate professionals about our industry's benefits to agents and sellers alike, I look forward to being an integral part of the growth of this exciting industry."

Last year I enrolled in a staging program which was very widely advertised and cost a little less than the CSP 3 Day Course. You know that saying “You get what you pay for” ? Well I graduated from that program still feeling that I needed more information – in fact, a lot more, actually. …

Hello Duncan and Christine, Just to let you know that attending the course as an alumni was interesting and informative. It was a real treat to sit back and listen (okay Duncan – not always listening after conducting a few consultations and showcasings. Thank you for the opportunity to sit back and absorb more …

I had heard great things about the organization by alumni as well as have had great discussions and assistance from Liz and Linda. They have always been there to answer any and all my questions, they are polite and super efficient. I enjoyed having Jackson West as the Trainer for our sessions. He was dynamic, …

I am new to the Home Staging business. I had originally taken another Home Staging course and received their certification. However, my experience was very disappointing; my interaction with their staff was unsatisfactory, I was unable to communicate directly with a trainer and the course was limited. Follow-up and mentorship was non-existent. I really felt …
