Innovation is the key to growth in any new industry; including home staging

Taking an idea to new heights or diving into the depths of un-tread territory within a relatively new industry has never been easy for entrepreneurs and it is with this recognition that the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) recognized a few individuals within the home staging industry, for their outstanding dedication and innovation within 2007.

As the electronic ballets were tallied January 13th, 2008, Christine Rae, president of North Americas Advanced CSP Staging Training Program, was voted by her peers as RESA “Staging Innovator of the Year 2007”. This prestige award is recognized across North America.

Christine Rae was nominated for her introduction of new ideas and implemented methods of transformation to the staging industry as a whole. These changes included the introduction of programs such as;
Certified Staging Professional 3 Day Staging Training which raises the education standards for those who earn a certification as a home staging consultant, ECO Staging an educational introduction to homeowners and real estate professionals as to the positive effects of a “green friendly” property prior to selling, CSP Charity of Choice a movement to help Habitat for Humanity create an impact by giving shelter to others.

“Christine Rae is one of the most giving, helpful, generous, inspiring people I have ever met. Christine has always had a warm heart and has always been there for everyone she knows … She is an amazing business women and this is well deserved.” says RESA President Shell Brodnax.

Last year I enrolled in a staging program which was very widely advertised and cost a little less than the CSP 3 Day Course. You know that saying “You get what you pay for”…?

I had heard great things about the organization by alumni as well as have had great discussions and assistance from Liz and Linda. They have always been there to answer any and all my questions, they are polite and super efficient…

I don’t know where to start. It was a fantastic class; it was such a pleasure to meet Christine and Lynelle…It was a lot of information in 3 days! I am happy and thrilled that I took this class – Thanks to everbody for their help!! Sincerely, Mira B. Mississauga, ON

I am new to the Home Staging business. I had originally taken another Home Staging course and received their certification. However, my experience was very disappointing…
