A home personalization experience that positions you as a market leader (with the stellar reviews to prove it).

A design team that doesn’t merely take orders… but confidently leads buyers through every stage of personalizing their dream home.

Design Studio Institute

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
