We help homebuilders turn their home personalization experience into a powerhouse that:

Eliminates operational headaches

Turns customers into raving fans

Drives home sales and even more profit on every home you sell

From team training to studio creation and everything in between, our business is helping you grow yours through the strategy of design.

Where every decision about your personalization
process begins with strategy in mind. The result?

We are the industry’s leading experts in helping homebuilders find, fix and monetize the untapped potential in their design studio (or design collections) experience.

Here’s how we can help you:

Sell More Homes

As buyers become more discerning and slower to buy, it’s essential that builders provide a compelling case for why buyers should act now — and why they should build with you.

With strategies you can implement quickly (and with minimal friction) to help you sell more homes, BOOST!™ is the edge you’ve been looking for.

BOOST!™ is for builders who want to discover strategies to leverage their existing personalization experience as a tool to sell more homes, even in challenging market conditions.

Train Your Design Team

Access world-class, industry-leading online training for your design studio team and elite-level support for managers.

We make it easier than ever to upskill your team with online training that has been expertly created specifically for the design studio environment.

Training ensures your design studio consultants and managers have the skills, tools and support they need to deliver an exceptional, streamlined personalization experience that drives customer satisfaction and profit at every turn.

For ambitious managers/VPs looking to grow their impact and join Jane’s inner circle, we’ve also got a limited-availability, career-transforming, in-person event experience.

Executive Consulting

Work privately with our founder, Jane Meagher, to rethink your operations, systems, personalization process and more.

Strategy Consulting is a custom project designed around your most pressing challenges, and the way to work directly with Jane (the undisputed national leader in design studio optimization and personalization strategy).

Private consulting is for builders who want to systematize operations for greater efficiency, optimize their design process, products, and pricing — and innovate new ways to solidify their position as market leaders.

Create a Design Studio

Create a world-class design studio that sets you apart as an industry leader.

We guide you through the process of creating a strategic design studio environment, so you can deliver a remarkable customer experience and sell more options. After creating 170+ unique design studios across the US & Canada (and winning over 30 national awards), our unparalleled expertise will help you maximize your space’s revenue potential while avoiding costly mistakes.

We offer two design studio creation options, to suit your timing, needs, and budget. The result is a state-of-the-art design studio with the power to change your business.

Master the skills you need to deliver a low-stress, high-profit design studio experience that delights customers from start to finish.

Jane is best in class

When it comes to creating meaningful and effective customer experiences, Jane is best in class. Her ability to blend concept and strategy into cohesive, actionable plans that achieve real goals and deliver remarkable results is unsurpassed. Jane did more than just elevate Eagle’s customer experience, she elevated the experience of Eagle itself.

Josh Goldschmidt
President, Eagle Homes

I’ve learned so much from Jane

I’ve learned so much from Jane about the Design Studio business. Her meticulous and focused attention to each project is admirable. She takes the time to understand the builder’s Design Studio business, points out where there may not be a clear strategy, and collaborates in an inclusive way to deliver projects that meet goals. Jane’s been a great thought partner throughout the years that I’ve had the pleasure to know her.

Lisa McLelland
National Vice President, Design Studios, Toll Brothers

Attention to detail is unmatched

As the Vice President of Operations for Kolter Homes, I was a part of a leadership team deciding to completely reinvent our approach to the design studio experience. We made the decision to hire Jane Meagher after an extensive search for the right consultant and program; no doubt we found that with Elevate. Jane has been nothing short of AMAZING to work with and is the utmost professional. Her attention to detail is unmatched and the genuine concern for improving every part of your design experience is rivaled by none. This program will offer you a truly elevated experience that will certainly impact your customers design experience, increase your profitability, and maximize the talents of your employees. I can’t say enough about difference Jane has made to our company.

Robert Smithwick
Executive Vice President of Operations of Kolter Homes

A game changer

The Design Studio has been a game changer to McBride Homes, both from the customer experience and profitability standpoints.  Jane provides an exponential return on investment and I am a very passionate fan of Jane and her company.

John Eilermann Jr.
Chairman and CEO, McBride and Son Homes

Jane is the best in the business

It goes without saying that our design centers have changed how we do business and paid for themselves many times over. Jane is the best in the business and I hope she can do for you what she does for us!

John Barnes, President
Chesapeake Homes Virginia Beach, VA

Jane’s coaching was powerful

Jane’s perspective and coaching was powerful in jump starting our journey toward a modern buying experience for our customers and in bringing efficiencies to our team. We were starting from a 50-year-old custom builder mindset who had managed to shift toward semi-custom over the last couple of decades but needed the kind of expertise and experience Success Strategies delivered. Becoming a “retailer” was a big jump for us and Jane’s help and guidance launching our Design Studio process and creating the space was invaluable.
