A recent graduated said: “As the owner of one of the nation’s top 5 ranked staging companies I have been staging properties for over 10 years. I never knew what I didn’t know! The CSP comprehensive course materials cover every aspect of the staging business. We will be implementing the processes immediately as we have definitely been leaving money on the table. I would recommend this program to anyone considering starting a staging business AND to anyone currently working in the industry. This class will truly transform your business, and the investment will pay for itself tenfold.”
From its inception CSP International™ has fostered collaboration and support of the staging industry. We were the original supporter for the launch of RESA by paying for all our graduates to have a membership for two years until RESA established its roots. Every year we sponsor the convention and encourage our members to attend. Since 2011 we ceased holding our own convention and awards in support of RESA. We also support and encourage membership plus the formation of Chapters. I personally served as Regional VP; many grads are in leadership roles. Since 2007, the award winning Staging Magazine, has served as an outstanding educational print media tool for real estate agents and we also regularly teach real estate agents the benefits of staging via the SOLD and CSP Elite Agent programs.
Thousands of graduates build incredibly successful staging businesses, win awards and build their local economy; it is important therefore to also help facilitate a stronger, united, professional, educated body of people who, even though they work in a non-regulated industry, can declare, regardless of non-regulation that they value and have continued skill learning to an advanced level. To facilitate in this process CSP International™ provides a platform for all stagers to achieve the International Masters of Real Estate Staging™ Designation.
An internationally recognized symbol of achievement and excellence for ALL stagers to leverage in their marketing message to clients and the media.
Eligibility: Staging professionals around the world, regardless of affiliation, with two or more years’ experience in the field, a stellar reputation, excellent portfolio, references and accrual of 28 CEU set as measurement of skills, knowledge, abilities and competencies.
