Welcome to The International Association of Home Staging Professionals®.

The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP®) was established in 1999. Our membership is in the thousands as we ARE The Staging Association of and for the Home Staging Industry. The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP®) is the only professional Home Staging Association that is dedicated strictly to the Home Staging Industry. The Home Staging Industry is part of the Real Estate Industry and not the decorating or design industries. IAHSP® was founded by The Creator of Home Staging®, Barb Schwarz, who for over 39 years has helped educate Realtors®, sellers and Stagers about the art and business of Home Staging.

The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® is the proven Distinguished Home Staging Association for guiding and leading the Home Staging Industry. IAHSP® stands for and subscribes to Ethical standards and principles of Excellence and decades of Experience in proven educational practices. IAHSP® is also the governing and regulating association for the coveted ASP®, Accredited Staging Professional® Designation. IAHSP® sets the standards of practice and ethical guidelines for the ASP® and ASPM® Designations.

IAHSP® and The ASP® Designation are the Benchmark association and designation established and strongly built over many, many years of time. No other Home Staging Association has the history and positive record based upon year after year of proven methods, principals of ethical practice and standards of excellence that The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® has.

Also as we continue to grow as an Association additional IAHSP® Chapters are always in formation so if you do not see an IAHSP® chapter near you, please contact us as an ASP® as new IAHSP® Chapters are always being built around North America, as well as other countries too. [email protected]
