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.
