“Highly Enlightening Read for the Homeowner”
Real Estate Agents love the Staging Standard Magazine, passing it along to their sellers after reading. Many who have been gifted the magazine by their staging consultant use them in their listing packages to educate their sellers on the importance of staging prior to putting their property on the market.
In fact, one publication can hang around the real estate office for months making the longevity and value of the Staging Standard Magazine remarkable!
“A Positive Influence Creating Awareness for the Staging Industry”
The CSP® Staging Standard Magazine™ promotes awareness for the staging industry through articles and photo documentation. Staging experts across North America and Australia submit articles of interest to enlighten readers on the staging industry as it is today.
Readership consists primarily of real estate professionals, staging consultants, home sellers and buyers, property appraisers and other industry-related professionals.
Magazine content highlights include: staging market trends, staging statistics, case studies and industry news.
Consistent delivery to the general public of this valuable information brings awareness and visibility about the staging as one of the fastest-growing industries today.
“Having Your Own Magazine Is A Priceless Marketing Tool For Any Stager”
Although this glossy 16-page professional magazine is available to the public for an affordable annual subscription, Certified Staging Professionals and CSPI Academy students have an additional opportunity to customize each publication for maximum business-building benefit.
Every two months, CSP® publishes the award-winning Staging Standard *** leading industry magazine. For a very nominal fee, you can have this magazine with customized information – including your picture and contact information, personal message on the inside page for your local community and delivery of “your” magazine even goes directly to your client!
Staging professionals often choose to utilize this unique marketing tool by ordering extras to give out during real estate presentations, tradeshows, open houses and homeowner quotes.
This not only enhances their individual professional credibility in providing their local marketplace with valuable information but also substantiates the return on investment that staging provides to virtually any real estate transaction.
To your client, a CSP® designation means credibility, excellence, experience, value and trust. And a magazine with your information highlighted prominently becomes a powerful marketing tool for instant credibility.
That means that for a few dollars per issue, you can have your own staging magazine to use in marketing your services! And this is just one of the many marketing tools that CSP® brings to our students.
*** Note: The Staging Standard Magazine is a non-profit publication of CSP® International.
“The Staging Standard Magazine has been great to hand around… Prospective clients seem to be more interested when they see my picture on the cover – a valuable tool for sure!”

History of CSP® Staging Standard Magazine
Every idea begins with a vision and Christine Rae, President of CSPI Academy, author of Home Staging For Dummies® and Winner of the RESA® 2009 Innovator of the Year, had a vision for a marketing tool that had never been done and that would powerfully assist professional stagers in building their businesses. She took her vision for that marketing tool to a U.S. publishing company who understood her direction and made it happen.
Combining leading-edge insight with the technical resources of Design by Publishing, CSP® launched the first Staging Standard Magazine at the CSP® Convention in 2006.
Since then, thousands of real estate industry-related professionals, property buyers and sellers, and certified stagers throughout Canada, the U.S. and Australia receive this distinctive publication.
“As you grow your business there is no more impressive tool than the Staging Standard Magazine. Real Estate agents, builders, investors and homeowners alike really perk up and tune in when you present this magazine. It shows them you are invested in your business and that you are a professional on top of your game. There is no better tool for making a “Wow” impression – it will open some surprising doors! “

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 staring 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.
I don’t know where to start. It was a fantastic class; it was such a pleasure to meet Christine and Lynelle…It was a lot of information in 3 days! I am happy and thrilled that I took this class – Thanks to everbody for their help!!

The first house I staged sold over asking last night!! Put on the market at $339K and sold 9 days later for 400K! The happiness I feel is so indescribable!! I just want to thank you so much for BEING CHRISTINE RAE! I don’t think I could ever have done this without your guidance and amazing program! CAN’T WAIT FOR MORE PROJECTS! The real estate agent wants to work with me too !! WOOHOO!
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.
