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. Also, I am so glad I chose CSP. This training was so much more than I expected. Anyone choosing CSP will not be disappointed.

Nairn Friemann


Nairn Friemann delivers in spades as a professional with wide a deep breadth of experience as an accomplished home staging professional and a gifted teacher and trainer. Her command on the subject matter is founded in science and expressed as art. The systems she taught are practical, valuable and easy to adapt and incorporate. So many training programs over promise and grossly under driver but Nairn’s Certified Staging Professional class provided the tools to really begin using and building valuable new skills immediately. Beyond teaching what to do, Nairn taught us how to do it and do it well. It is no surprise or accident that she has won the prestigious home staging awards that she has. You cannot expect or ask for a better trainer or package. I feel confident that I can go out and provide a valuable service, thanks to Nairn’s guidance, instruction and class.

The CSP program was well worth my time and financial investment. I learned the fundamentals of good staging, met great classmates and learned from the practical experience of our CSP trainer, Nairn Friemann. The most valuable part of the program was the opportunity to stage a property under the watchful eye of our trainer; an exercise that no online program could possibly match…. One of best professional decisions I have made thus far!

You’re a terrific teacher and we feel that the skills we learned and the tools with which we were provided allow for a strong start and a great path.

Nairn, your first-hand knowledge and insight is appreciated more than words can convey, especially having the opportunity to learn from you during a hands-on project. It has been an invaluable learning experience!!
