CSP International™ Masters of Real Estate Staging
CSP International™ Business Training Academy is college for stagers; its life work has been and continues to be for the betterment of education and experience providing a stronger, higher skilled, more respected professional to be valued in an embryonic industry. People always look for “what is in it for me”; the reasons for advancing your education are varied; personal, emotional and financial. It may include career advancement, acknowledgement of achievement, status; to substantiate increased rates, skill development and also the love of learning. It denotes to your clients that you have developed your competencies; makes you more valuable, differentiates you from your competition AND helps drive the economy!
When asked about the value of continued education Professor John Ramsey said credentials are about setting you apart, make you more employable, more valuable and knowledgeable. Strong credentials trigger the magical feeling of achievement; weak or no credentials are reminders of poor advice, money problems, bad decisions, wasted time and frustrations.
The award recognizes achievement of work in the field. This level cannot be attained without being a foot soldier first. It is an internationally recognized symbol of achievement and excellence for you to leverage in your marketing message to your clients and the media.

Is Staging Certification Necessary?
The home staging industry is unregulated and there is no “governing and regulating association”. Don’t let this alarm or dissuade you from pursing your dream. The Home Inspection industry is non- regulated also, in fact many industries are rooted in non-regulation. What it means is simply anyone can say they are a stager and anyone can provide a training course, online or in person………….. without ever having staged a home! Shocking isn’t it? We believe as a new business starting out you need as much ammunition and information as possible to position you as an expert instead of a newbie. Certification for a stager is as vital as a license is to a real estate agent.

Yesterday I was listening to and reviewing some of the information from the “FastTrack Business Package”, it occurred to me how much thought went into putting this package together. I felt I needed to say Thank You to you and your Team. All the information taught in the class and provided in this package has given me the confidence I need to start this new chapter in my life.
