History of the Professional Property Stager Learning Institute
Connie Nedergaard, Founder of the Professional Property Stager Learning Institute has been in the property staging business for more than 20 years.  Connie brings a wealth of experience to the Real Estate Property Staging Industry and her mission is to provide future and present Property Stagers with the knowledge, training, experience, and success she has enjoyed throughout her career.  
It all began with Staged N Sold® and the “Three Level Service Plan©” in 2000.  The three-level service plan was an exclusive product created and developed by Connie Nedergaard, President, and Founder.  The idea was to help real estate professionals  and sellers understand what Property Staging is and what service or services they would need to become “Market Ready.”

The success of Staged N Sold®’s products and processes generated countless phone calls and email requests from not only potential property stagers but others that were struggling with their staging business.  The question most often asked, “How did you achieve such success in such a short time in such a new industry?”  Stagers were curious to learn Connie’s strategy and eager to discover what tools or trade secrets she was using. 

Letters reached Connie’s desk with requests to join the StagedNSold® team.  As her business grew so did the need for a strong professional staging team.  Candidates were interviewed, and teams were developed and trained in Ontario, as well as British Columbia.  With Connie’s experience as a Real Estate Professional and extensive knowledge, training and expertise as a property stager, the Professional Property Stager® Certification was born.  To maintain the integrity of the products and processes, Connie needed to set the staging standards for the company and develop a comprehensive model that would allow individual accomplishments for Professional Property Stagers (PPS®).  The program was a success, and since that time our PPS® Certification programs continue to improve and grow.
