Based on the science of visual perception and emotional attachment, its application maximizes the selling potential for properties in a way that benefits sellers and real estate professionals.

This systematic and effective staging method provides the most highly-specific training in furniture/décor arrangement and paint color in the home staging industry, and has made Kristie Barnett of The Decorologist® one of the most well-known staging experts in the country.

In addition, it includes ongoing mentoring, support, and referrals after graduation.

“I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in understanding the science behind and importance of home staging, learning proven strategies for making a lasting first impression, appealing to the maximum number of home buyers, and starting up your own home staging business,” writes Cynthia Gallentine, EPS™. “First class in every way, exceptionally practical and fun!”
