PROFESSIONAL PROPERTY STAGER® REA CONSULTANT CERTIFICATION
COURSE CODE: PPSRC-01 - PPS® REA Consultant, Handbook (4TH Edition)
The Professional Property Stager REA Consultant Certification combines the first two levels of the Professional Property Stager four level Certification. Level I, the Professional Property Stager® (PPS®) Novice Certification and Level II, PPS® Consultant Certification.
PART ONE (PPS Novice) of the PPS REA Certification focuses on the Property Staging component of your Real Estate business. You will learn, in depth, the fundamentals of Property Staging from floor to ceiling. Staging design elements including color, texture, and the study of current market and property trends. In class, your instructor will provide scenarios for each space in a home, and you will be given the opportunity to engage in solutions and recommendations for these spaces. Your instructor will guide you through the staging process and staging techniques that will show your sellers your ability to reclaim lost equity and create marketable configurations. With the tools and training provided in this program, you will be recognized as a qualified professional.
PART TWO (PPS Consultant) focuses on putting that knowledge to work for you to powerfully help homeowners sell their home faster and/or for more money. The PPS® Consultant Certification portion of the program converges on the Limited Service Plan (LSP©), a proven PPS® tool that has helped sell millions of dollars in real estate every year since 2000. The LSP© is a Consultation service that Certified Professional Property Stagers© provide clients that want to "get down and dirty" and do the work themselves. This however, is only possible with the aid of your Property Staging expertise, your client handling skills and the detailed LSP© Consultation Report. With your guidance, resources, and skillfulness, you will share great success with your sellers in getting their home showcase ready. Lastly, you will learn service rates that Property Stagers’ charge, what those fees include and what discounts you can expect. This is helpful when personally providing the service to your sellers as you will be able to share with them the costs associated and the value you are bringing to your seller whether you hire a property stager or provide the service yourself as a Certified Professional Property Stager REA Consultant. After completion of this certification, you will have the confidence to help sellers sell their homes faster and smarter.

Here is what our students are saying:
T E S T I M O N I A L S
“Staging creates the best likelihood that a house will sell at the high end of its price range, and quickly- it’s not about creating the perfect home. The class is extraordinarily good at showing Realtors - using humor, stories and abundant knowledge -how to create and maximize value. Even though I’ve owned, renovated and sold over 50 of my own homes, and helped clients with hundreds, the class taught me concepts and techniques I needed to know to help my clients and my career. Jump at the opportunity to take the class to make you better”. ~ Tim Knittel Realty Executives
