The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP®) is the professional association serving the Home Staging industry. Since 1999, IAHSP® has set high standards based on educational requirements, standards of excellence, and a code of ethics for our members as they serve the public in the communities where we live and work. IAHSP® is open to all Home Stagers and Real Estate Agents that meet the educational standards set for membership. IAHSP® was founded by The Creator of Home Staging, Barb Schwarz, who for over 35 years has helped educate Realtors®, sellers and Stagers about the art and business of Home Staging.
IAHSP® members believe in networking, branding, and working together for business growth to enhance the profession of Home Staging and to educate the public about ASP® Home Staging services in the areas where our members live and serve.
Therefore, a requirement for joining IAHSP® is to first be educated and trained in the business and service of Home Staging by investing in a quality training and educational program. IAHSP® has selected the Accredited Staging Professional® (ASP®) Course as the preferred educational resource.
The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP®) Foundation, a non-profit organization, organizes the annual World Wide Staging Service Week, when local chapters around the United States and Canada participate in a week-long event to improve the lives of others through the magic of Home Staging.
I’m so proud of all our ASPs®. You truly make a difference for so many in your communities. It is my honor to always be working for you.
