Raleigh, NC, October 19, 2007 --( Susan Holbrook, senior vice president and sales manager for the Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Falls of Neuse Road office, has announced that Lora Fillingim, Jane Cipau and Anita Collins of The Fillingim Group have each been awarded the designation of Accredited Staging Professional™ (ASP™) and are members of the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP). The ASP™ designation is a benchmark of true excellence in customer service for home sellers through the principles and practices of staging.

Fillingim, Cipau and Collins each completed a detailed course on how to stage homes for sale in order to make them clean, clutter-free and ready to show to prospective buyers, as well as passed a thorough examination on preparing homes for sale. Staged homes traditionally sell faster and for more money in today’s real estate market. The IAHSP is dedicated to creating a stronger professional environment by building on its members’ knowledge, helping create business opportunities, fostering a sense of community within the staging profession and increasing the IAHSP’s identity in the real estate industry.
