JENNIE NORRIS BIO

 

I am the Chairwoman of IAHSP®, President & CEO of Stagedhomes.com and the owner of Sensational Home Staging serving the Denver area.  I also own We Stage Colorado, a full-service furniture resource and supply for home staging projects.  I love helping people and educating others on how home staging can help them achieve their goals.

 

Since 2005, I have presented the Accredited Staging Professional® (ASP®) and ASP Master® (ASPM®) Courses throughout North America and via Webinar, teaching thousands of Realtors and Stagers worldwide, helping them in their journey to success. I have mentored, coached, and encouraged thousands of industry colleagues to be an impact player in our industry.

 

Trained personally by Barb Schwarz, I have been included in Staging features on ABC’s 20/20, NBC’s Today Show and HGTV television and online segments, national and local publications, and radio.  I am the only 2-Time Winner of the Staging Award of Excellence and the IAHSP Spirit Award, voted on by peers in the Home Staging industry.  In addition, I and our team have been recognized for our work, receiving multiple awards for staging quality for all types of properties. 

 

I have helped mentor Home Stager colleagues as a Business Coach and Trainer.  As IAHSP® Chairwoman, I have been instrumental on the expansion of IAHSP globally, adding sister chapters in Europe and Latin America, with more in the future.  One of my other passions is writing, and I am a prolific blogger, author, and social media networking expert.  In 2012, I wrote the book,“Marketing Made Simple," to help provide guidance for industry professionals who struggle with how to gain business.  Since 2002, I have Staged over 5,500 properties putting her in the top 5% of all Home Stagers in the industry worldwide.

 

I believe education in any profession is crucial for success and the home staging industry is no different.  To date, I have earned my Accreditation and Master Accreditation as a Staging Professional, ASP-SRS (Senior Relocation Specialist), ASP-REO (Real Estate Owned), ASP-BTS (Buyer Trends Specialist), IAHSP-CB (Color Basics), IAHSP-LHS (Luxury Home Specialist), IAHSP-ISC (Investor Staging Consultant), STRS (Short Term Rental Specialist) Designations.

 

Jennie received a BA Degree in Psychology with a Biology emphasis from UCLA and has been professionally Staging since 2002.  She lives in Littleton, CO with her husband of 33 years, John, and their four children, ages 21-26.
