Certified Staging Professionals Trainees Create Home Staging Transformation in New Jersey

As one of the Certified Staging Professionals trainers, it is always such a pleasure for me to meet and mentor our new talented and highly motivated CSPs. Last week I trained a class of CSPs at Brookdale College in Freehold, New Jersey. Our hands-on staging project really differentiates our training program and provides our trainees with an invaluable learning experience. Many of my trainees have told me they never had so much fun working so hard! To me it is so obvious – how can you be trained as a professional stager without doing any hands-on staging in the program? And our after-training support is incomparable.

I am always impressed with the transformations the classes are able to make in just a few short hours. Because we do not bring in any additional items, the trainees need to use their creativity and what they have learned in class to edit and rearrange what the homeowner already has to best showcase the strengths of the property. This class assignment was very challenging but the trainees rolled up their sleeves and demonstrated such work ethic and talent – and all with a positive attitude and a high degree of camaraderie. I was truly amazed at what they achieved in less than five hours.

Here are just a couple of the before and after photos.

This dynamic group of CSP trainees achieved a home staging miracle in many of the rooms and left a comprehensive list of additional recommendations. It was so gratifying to be able to truly help the homeowner and the agent in preparing this estate condition property for sale. As Certified Staging Professionals, our mission is to collaborate with sellers and agents to prepare properties for sale so that they will stand out from the competition – maximizing the return on the homeowners’ equity and reducing time on the market.

I am looking forward to my next CSP training class at Purchase College, New York from October 28th -30th. For more information, visit http://www.csptraining.com/ and http://www.ingenuitypizzazz.com/ and feel free to call me at 917-952-4669 if you have any questions.
