CSP® Occupied Staging Specialist™
National Association of Realtors, say 90% of people can’t visualize a house beyond what they see
Top Real Estate Staging Training Academy Solves the Problem with the all-new Occupied Staging Specialist™ training! Leading home staging training and certification expert Christine Rae adds more credibility to
CSP International™’s outstanding certification program.
In response to growing concerns within the non-regulated industry of home staging, regarding the qualifications of stagers, Certified Women’s Business Enterprise, CSP International™ has just added a whole new level of credibility for their graduates to leverage..
CEO, Christine Rae, said “we have always believed in best business practices, professional standards and education as crucial components for a strong foundation in a business startup situation. In an emerging industry where there is no official measure of credibility, we thought it best to provide something tangible and measurable for real estate agents and property sellers to base their hiring decisions on.” Rae said, “Many competitors claim that no one needs certification for this work, which is true when no one cares – anything goes. The point is the end user (property seller/real estate investor/builder/real estate agent) shouldn’t have to guess or worry about the quality of work they receive”. Every year at the Real Estate Staging Association conference, CSP graduates rank highest in award recipients, across all categories. “Recently all finalists in the occupied category were CSP graduates; this affirmed to us our program is sound”, said Rae, “we want to provide acknowledgement of that to our students and the real estate community, with this designation.”
One true measure of a stager’s skill is working in an occupied property, with furnishings they didn’t choose, the size and scale of items not perfect, often with irrational color schemes. Using a proprietary process graduates are able to create magic – the results of which make for amazing photographs and visual presentation. According to the National Association of Realtors, 90% of people can’t visualize a house beyond what they see in front of them. This is important when 97% of potential buyers start their search on the internet – browsing listing photos.
