What People Are Saying about the ASP® Designation
Want to know what the ASP® Course and Designation can do for you? I thought I’d let the voices of the many who have taken the course before you have shared. Here’s what Accredited Staging Professionals® have shared about their experiences with the ASP® Course and life beyond as an ASP®. Impact of ASP® Course Letter after letter, email after email, I receive from ASPs® includes a testimonial about what difference the ASP® Course made for them. “The ASP® program gave me good solid advice as to how to start my business as a home stager. The training and hands on experience is something each stager should experience! After having completed the program I walked away with an abundance of literature, a sense of belonging to the ASP® family and most importantly an affirmation that I can do this. I’m proud to announce to everyone that I’m an ASP® Stager!” “Being an ASP® means being a professional. It means that all ASP’s are trained under the same standards. The course is precise, proficient, and provides individuals with enough backing to start and become successful in their own staging businesses. The Staged Homes support and backing along with affiliates provide the professional presence required to succeed. These are the most valuable asset to being an ASP®.” Market Perception Many speak of the impact having the ASP® Designation has in the marketplace among consumers and real estate professionals. “Being an ASP® Stager is preferred by REALTORS® in our area. Being an ASP® Stager gives me an advantage because of all of the information and discounts available to me through StagedHomes.com.” “I feel that the ASP® designation is probably the most well recognized designation for Home Stagers. They offer the highest level of training and support to their designees.” “I feel that being an ASP® gives us an advantage over non-ASPs® because we have the power of the corporation that is Stagedhomes.com behind us. We may be a small company but we come across as polished and professional because of the relationship we have with Stagedhomes.com whether it be through our marketing materials, our proven system for staging or the ability to offer our clients discounts because of Stagedhomes.com’s corporate relationship with many vendors. These are the things that set ASPs® apart from the others.” Support Network Others describe the support they find in other ASPs® who also are members of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals®, both locally and around the nation. “I chose to become an Accredited Staging Professional® and enjoy the benefits of a local chapter full of creative people. What a benefit to have this organization available! It’s a long, lonely road to starting a business, attempting to educate everyone along the way as to what it is you do and why they need it. I see ASPs® as having already paved the way for those of us who just want to get on with staging. I considered other alternatives as to how to go about educating myself and I am happy that I chose Barb Schwarz’s program.” Always working for you, Barb Barb Schwarz, ASP®, ASPM®, AB, IAHSP® The Creator of Home Staging® CEO www.Stagedhomes.com IAHSP® Founder and Chairwoman of The Board of The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® and Foundation 23 days left!
