You know buying at the wholesale level will save you time and boost your bottom line, then why haven’t you ever found time to go to a Mart?
Are you puzzled, scared, and just completely confused about everything connected to buying wholesale?
Things like: managing the intricacies of vendor relationships, learning the secret language of terms & definitions, how to read the coded tags, developing connections for best pricing, and learning how to buy furnishing can all seem too much to deal with because if you take an opportunity to go and can’t figure everything out, you will have wasted all that time you could have sold to a staging client for nothing.
FEAR no longer!
Join Christine Rae with special guest professional interior designer Debbie Talianko to learn everything you need to know about buying wholesale and more.
Debbie will walk you through her exclusive TO-THE-TRADE PROCESS of procuring furnishings and dealing with vendors for running a profitable staging or decorating business. In this information-packed workshop, you’ll discover how to make decisions that will affect the success of your business, as well as enhance the customer experiences you create.
Participants will learn:
- What You’ll Need to Qualify to Buy at the Wholesale Level
- The Most Profitable Way to Buy (And Sell) Goods
- Where to Find the Market Shows Each Year
- How to Work with a Vendor
- How To Recognize Quality In The Goods You Buy
Teaching the Business of Staging
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.
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!
“If you are looking to start your own staging business or want to get into the industry, CSP is what you are looking for! Christine Rae has developed a stellar turnkey program for anyone who is serious about this business.”
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!!
