Home Staging Success for NYC CSP Trainees!

I am so proud of my new NYC CSPs! We had a fantastic staging training last weekend in my Chelsea loft office space. The class staged a $1.350 million Pre-War, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom co-op on the Upper West Side on Monday, Oct. 19th. The owner is a recent widower, looking forward to selling his apartment and moving to his home in Israel, but of course with so many fond memories present, the process can be emotional and overwhelming.

It was truly such a pleasure to be able help him prepare his apartment for showings. In amazing synchronicity, one of the NYC trainees, Aya Barak, had traveled all the way from Israel to take this CSP training and was able to converse with the seller in Hebrew -an incredible coincidence.The home is in very good condition and very clean, it just needed some “reducing, re-arranging and refreshing” and the CSP special touch.

The class worked enthusiastically and energetically and created an amazing transformation! The first open house was this past Sunday. By Monday they had a very good offer and appointments from four couples to return for second visits. In this very “challenged” NYC market, this is exceptional!

This was such a positive experience for everyone. The class had an excellent hands-on learning experience and felt really happy that they were able to help this seller so much. All in keeping with Christine Rae’s “pay it forward” philosophy for CSP.

Marie-Elena Waldrip summed it up so well. “The class and our working together ended all too soon- I never had so much fun working so hard!”

The CSP NYC classes are unique because they are run work-shop style with a maximum of 6 trainees. This allows excellent opportunity for lots of one-on-one attention and a high energy class dynamic. As president of Ingenuity & Pizzazz, Inc. have collaborated with home sellers and agents on the staging and marketing of over $500 million in real estate and I share my diverse experience with my trainees.
My next New York class is scheduled for January 9th – 11th, 2010. For more information, contact nairn@ingenuity.com and please visit www.ingenuitypizzazz.com and www.csptraining.com.
