Staged Interior is owned and operated by Trish and Young Kim, both Accredited Staging Professional Masters (ASPMs). All other stagers are Accredited Staging Professionals (ASPs). Because it takes more than one stager to accomplish a home staging project, we work in staging teams on all projects. Our energetic staging teams collaborate to create polished and beautiful results – and have a lot of fun doing it, too!
Using the Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) Stager Code of Ethics and Standards as a foundation, ASP stagers and their teams bring their experience, talent, creativity and, yes, muscle power, to every home they stage. For more information about the training of ASP stagers, go to www.stagedhomes.com and the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) at www.iahsp.com.
