Unlocking Passion Through Education
"The Staging Laboratory unlocks passion through education"
Since 2009, Parker Staging has trained dozens of stagers. Most of whom were hired with no staging experience. Each stager began with the desire to learn the basics of home staging and grow their passion. Overtime, we have created effective training programs for stagers at every level of staging experience. We have collected countless tips, tricks and philosophies that help our team stage over 400 houses a year.
What We Offer
Home Staging 101
Home Staging is the art & science of preparing a home for sale. From knowing how to recommend changes to a home for sale, to selecting and installing needed furniture, art and decor, home staging is a multi faceted, creative discipline. A discipline that works best when it is approached logically and with organization. Home Staging 101 is our three-hour training course that offers a hands-on approach to Home Staging education.
Seasonal Staging Internship Program
The Staging Laboratory offers an 8-week seasonal internship to work in partnership with our interior designers, home furnishings staff and the rest of our team. This internship provides weekly classroom training and hands-on experience in the field. Each intern must have a total of 40-60 hours of in-service hours as well as hands-on experience in the field by the completion of the internship in order to receive their staging certification, letter of recommendation, or consideration of hire.
Staging Training for Realtors
Our "Lunch-n-Learn" staging training is offered to Realtors. We provide the lunch with a 30 minute presentation that shares the benefits of home staging and teaches agents how to communicate the value of staging as well as overcome objections. This presentation includes information ranging from staging tips & tactics, decluttering, managing occupied listings, & more.
