design studio best practices

Need to improve your design studio operations?

Take control with proven strategies that streamline processes, increase option sales and delight homebuyers.

The Design Studio Best Practices Workshop is an intensive learning experience for homebuilder management teams. Led by Jane Meagher over two days, your team will work together to make policy decisions that will improve your operations and increase your design studio’s revenue potential. You’ll get a comprehensive set of procedure documents, how-to guides, sample letters, forms and more, plus, you’ll develop an action plan to start seeing business results.

What are your current processes costing you?

Your design studio is a crucial part of your buyer’s journey that’s interconnected with every other department. Inefficient processes, miscommunication and not setting proper buyer expectations are costing you money every day.

This comprehensive workshop shows you how the right policies and procedures will increase your option sales and overall customer satisfaction.

Through structured team discussion, you’ll map out the buyer’s journey to the design studio and beyond, then outline actionable strategies to enhance the process.

The Design Studio Best Practices Workshop is about making business decisions that will help you take control in the design studio for business-wide results.

“Here is the short answer, Do It! I do not see how anyone would not benefit greatly from the Best Practices workshop regardless of how experienced you are.In our case, we are implementing virtually everything that Jane and her Team put together.… the bottom line is that it is definitely worth the investment in both money and time.”

Peter Engle, President

“The insight that Jane and her crew brought to the table and the way they bring it is first rate.  We left the workshop not only with a binder full of ideas but instructions on how and why to do it “this way”.  Also met a number of other great builders and have been exchanging emails with them since the workshop. I would highly recommend the workshop.”
