Earn CSP Home Staging Certification with RESA 2012 Pro Stager of the Year

With so many choices of home staging training available, how do you know which one to choose?

It’s easy to shop for the lowest price or the quick and easy routes. But generally speaking, in any purchase you make, “you get what you pay for.”

Invest in top VALUE and train with the leaders in the industry.

Certified Staging Professionals is the leading home staging training program and is accredited by the Real Estate Staging Association. President, Christine Rae, an internationally respected home staging authority and best selling-author, was recently honored with RESA’s 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to the home staging industry. The CSP designation is recognized as a brand of excellence.

In my opinion, on-line training cannot possibly provide a comparable learning experience. Having an instructor, who is a successful home staging business owner, offers countless opportunities for one-on-one attention and numerous additional learning benefits.

I was recently honored by the membership of the Real Estate
Staging Association as RESA’s 2012 Professional Stager of the Year. As president of Ingenuity & Pizzazz, Inc. I have collaborated with home sellers and real estate agents on the staging of over $600 million in real estate. Before relocating to the U.S. I was an award-winning university lecturer in Montreal and now as a CSP instructor, I am fortunate to be able to combine my love for teaching and home staging.

Here’s what trainees say:

“Nairn is a superior teacher. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, and creative. She communicates clearly and encourages questions. She is challenging but very encouraging. She is the consummate professional. As a college professor myself, I can assure you, she is top of the scale in effectiveness.” P.Ponzi

” Your generosity with your knowledge and training was enormous. You are truly a great teacher. There are a lot of people out there with knowledge, but not all can teach. We were very fortunate to have you as our trainer.” W. Trautwein

“You were the best instructor I could have asked for. You are imminently qualified, the personification of professional, a generous and natural teacher and an inspiring example of how to run a successful staging business. Your future students are in very good hands with you.”
M. Lavery-Smith

My upcoming classes:

March 12-15: Brookdale College, Lincroft, NJ

March 24-26: New York, NY. Come to NYC and enjoy a few extra days as a tourist!

April 18-20: Purchase College: Purchase, NY

April 28-30: Hartford, CT

May 14-16: Montreal, QC

In addition, CSP trainees benefit immensely from a shared learning experience with other creative stagers and the hands-on component of the training is invaluable. And the CSP training includes so much more than a 3-day experience.

The Marketing Resources provided are incomparable in the industry. These resources include: 4 page website, complimentary (and already set up) weblog account. The graduates of the CSP program have a wealth of marketing tips and home staging resources at their fingertips in the CSP Resource Center.

Other outstanding differences of the CSP program are the many after class support programs and opportunities available only to the CSP Members including CSP Marketing Advantage Camp (12 sessions, 6 week webinar with a marketing coach).

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

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

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 IngenuityPizzazz.com and www.csptraining.com.
