Communication is crucial to your Staging success! Staging Talent is one thing, but learning how to get your sellers and Real Estate agents to do what you share with them is another. You can be the greatest Stager in the world, but if you are not able to educate your clients on the benefits of Staging then they probably will not Stage® their home or listing with you. Therefore, your ASP® Course is very detailed on day one of how to communicate with your clients and RE Agents so that they say ‘yes’. We teach you how to educate your sellers to do whatever is required to Stage® their home. Staging many times is the easy part. Convincing the seller can be the hard part. On day one you will learn what to say and how to say it so that your sellers move ahead with you. You will learn the ASP® Steps of Staging and home staging sayings. You will learn the ASP® service code and creed and the ASP® steps of serving clients the ASP® way which is the proven system that works! Day One is the foundation for the also crucial 2 days to follow and it is the foundation of your entire ASP® Staging Business.

By reviewing many before and after sets of various types of properties, you will have detailed classroom training on how to Stage® a house in the different rooms that most homes have. Your ASP® course shows you that ASP® Staging is not about just “buying things” but rather and also how to work with what the homeowner has in ‘lived in homes’ and how to use your creativity to do the best possible work to serve your clients in the best possible way. There are many before and after pictures/slides to see as examples of what can be done working with just what the seller has in the lived in home. Vacant ASP® Home Staging will be discussed in detail with various categories of Vacant properties from modest to multi-million dollar properties. You will see not only before and after examples but you will learn Staging Ideas, materials to use, Key Staging Concepts, and creative problem solving of how to make ASP® Staging magic out of almost anything!
