Enriched My Life

by jeanette Soscia
This has been the best investment I have made in myself and in my future. The Real Estate Staging Professional Course is full of informative content that I have been able to apply to my business and personal home-styling. This on-line course is simple to navigate and is well designed-- making it easy to revisit for reference &/or review later in your career... The knowledge gained during this on-line course totally surpassed my expectations!!! Founder, Shauna Lynn Simon's expertise of; business, motivation, empowerment, style & partnership has made this experience enrich my life and made my dreams a reality. Well done SLS Academy, I am honored to be a student.

Loved the course

by Nicole Pletz
I really enjoyed taking this course. It is full of detailed information regarding all aspects of home staging from the basic "what is home staging?" to wall art hanging heights and what to look for in a home. I appreciate all the time and effort that went into the content of this course as well as all the downloads and personalized templates. I highly recommend it for anyone that is interested in home staging. I feel that I learned way more information than I originally thought would be included in the course and I completed it feeling confident in my knowledge and what was presented. The value for what you get it incredible.

My search stopped at the SLS Academy

by Julie Metaxas
I had done a lot of research and attended information sessions for other home stager training programs prior to learning about the SLS Academy. My search stopped there. Shauna Lynn's approach blew the rest out of the water with her real-life perspective. Never did she say that starting a home staging business would be easy - and she is absolutely right. But the abundance of resources and tools she provided (not to mention the in-person job shadowing opportunity) were exactly what I needed to launch my business systematically, confidently, and successfully. I am now 8 months into my business and the post-course support she provides is also a huge asset. I would highly recommend the SLS Academy's RESP Certification Training!
