After the release of her book Sold For Top Dollar attracted huge interest in her home state, Adelaide author and home staging expert Charyn Youngson will head interstate in June for the start of an extensive speaking tour taking in Melbourne, Perth, Canberra and regional New South Wales.

Charyn will be both promoting her book and speaking at investment seminars throughout June and is keeping her options open on extending the tour to meet demand. She will address the Active Property Network seminar in Melbourne on June 7 before a “Meet the Authors” event at Borders bookshop in Melbourne the following day.

She will then head to Canberra for another property forum on June 16 and is still finalising her itinerary and hopes to speak at several other regional centres including Dubbo before heading to Perth for another “Meet the Authors” event at Borders later in the month. Charyn will speak in Perth with friend and fellow author Kerrie Phipps, who is also keen to have her speak in her home town of Dubbo in the next month or so.

Before she packs her bags, though, Charyn has to complete a busy schedule which includes speaking engagements at Ayers House and the Festival Theatre as well as a family night at Bunnings Mile End promoting the book she co-wrote with daughter and Houses To Impress business partner Kate.

Charyn and Kate have enjoyed great success over the past couple of years with their Adelaide-based business but demand and interest has exploded with the recent release of their book. They have attracted national media interest, which only increased with the launch of the book to a packed function at the SA Writers Centre on April 28.

“The response to the book has been overwhelming and I think that has something to do with people wanting to take ownership of their financial situations and improve their own homes,” Charyn says. “Sold For Top Dollar looks at how to use simple staging methods to lift the look of the home but it also concentrates on property investment and renovation techniques. Kate and I knew we were on to something big with the business and we put that into the book, which has obviously struck a nerve with people.”
