What is an Accredited Staging Professional®?

An Accredited Staging Professional (ASP®) is a dedicated professional who has studied and learned the proven and powerful techniques of Staging homes.  An ASP® has successfully completed a detailed ASP® course and passed a required thorough examination on preparing homes for sale.  Staged Homes traditionally present themselves better than the competition by being clean, clutter-free, and ready to show to prospective buyers.  An ASP® Stager is committed to the principle and practices of marketing properties as Staged Homes.
