Check out some of the testimonials from attendees: “I just completed the Luxury Home Specialist Designation Course. This course includes a significant amount of very useful information. I now understand what constitutes a Luxury Property and how to market my business in order to obtain these types of projects. The resources we have through our IAHSP Vendor Program are invaluable to help control costs while providing a high-quality, upscale look. I found the visuals to be very relevant and helpful. This course was well worth the investment!”
“The LHS (Luxury Home Specialist) webinar was fantastic. The presentation was extremely informative and interesting. I am a seasoned Stager and I learned so much. Well worth the money and your time to stay up with today’s market and break into the Luxury Market. You owe it to yourself and your clients to be informed on the latest market niches and income opportunities. Thank you IAHSP!”
The 2019 BEST OF HOME STAGING RECIPIENTS have been ANNOUNCED and winners have been sent their 2019 Best of Home Staging logos to share on their sites, social media and marketing literature.
The Best of Home Staging is an annual recognition of Home Staging Industry Professionals in three categories:
Client Care Excellence
In each category, industry pros were nominated by colleagues, notified of that nomination, and sent logos indicating their potential recognition. Final award recipients were notified this week and we are excited to share the number of recipients from this is year double the number from last year and include recipients from 12 different countries.
The BEST of HOME STAGING Awards are issued by the International Association of Home Staging Professionals®, (IAHSP®) the largest and longest-running Home Staging Industry Association. There were no limitations on who was nominated and recipients are without bias. The awards are not limited to one association, country, or training organization are were open to anyone in the industry who was deserving.
Industry colleagues nominating their fellow professional Home Stagers is really wonderful and what was shared about each nominee has been so great to see. It tells me that our work is being noticed, and our industry colleagues are appreciative of each other. In a world where there is a lot of negativity and lack of support for people who “compete” with each other, this is refreshing and part of what we hoped would happen with these industry recognition awards.
