Real Estate Design Expert Christine Rae Publishes New Blog Discussing the Growing Significance of Home Staging
Christine Rae, President of CSP International Business Training Academy, a Home Staging Training company writes about the increasing influence of home stagers, and how they may be to thank for a recent upturn in the housing market.
Orlando, FL – November 5, 2011 – Christine Rae, President of CSP International Business Training Academy, a Home Staging Training and Real Estate Strategy company, recently published a blog on her website (http://www.stagingtraining.com) about the importance of long-term planning in business development. The article, titled “Home Staging: Is Your Property “Move-In Ready?” discusses a recent news story about Better Homes and Gardens (BHG) Real Estate, a large group of home stagers, who just signed a deal to expand its operations into Canada, thereby really highlighting the importance of staging.
Christine writes, “BHG is another group that believes strongly in the importance of correctly staging a property to improve its chances of being sold, and so it is gratifying to see them expand so strongly.”
Certified Staging Professionals trains home stagers through a comprehensive course of study that includes 3 days in a classroom, 4 weeks of home study and 6 weeks of hands-on market coaching. CSP is also a resource for Realtors and home sellers to find and hire graduates of this highly accredited staging education program, for assisting them in successfully closing their real estate sale.

About CSP International™ Business Training Academy:
CSP began as the brainchild of its founder and president, Christine Rae. A long-time corporate executive, Christine began with the CSP program and a goal of bringing her penchant for high standards and business ethics, together with her knowledge of design and the real estate industry to an industry without a map. Her own extensive training came from across North America including New York City, California, Texas and the Carolinas. From her research Christine knew there was a need for a distinctly different approach to staging. Growing from one course to a complete school with several physical locations and 15 well trained instructors, the CSP program is the leading global source for finding highly trained stagers and is the primary destination for anyone wanting to become a stager, it is the company more real estate agents turn to, on behalf of their clients. They are a Canadian success story for sure but no longer strictly Canadian having expanded to the United States in 2006 and Australia in 2009. The program has been translated into Mandarin; Global license opportunities currently under review include China, Germany and France.
