Join RESA Now!




Stature & Credibility 

  • Belonging to a trade association is a sure way to boost the reputation of your business.  
  • Because RESA is a non-profit organization held to bylaws, a board of directors and membership, our association is truly driven by members and leaders of the organization. 
  • RESA is growing its presence through various channels such as connecting with local real estate associations, making connections at various Markets, reaching out to WCR chapters, and providing publication tools to elevate the industry it serves.
  • RESA members must adhere to a Code of Ethics.  A strong COE protects the consumer as well as our members.  RESA takes pride in standards and the COE helps reinforce a level of expectation.
Leadership
  • Being involved with RESA opens many opportunities for leadership and networking. There are approximately fifty local chapters of RESA in the US and Canada with local leadership opportunities. RESA's State Presidents provide oversight, mentorship and target opportunities for growth.  RESA has advisory committees that support the National Board and give members an avenue to help shape the industry and direction of the association.
  • Local chapters generate exposure for home staging at the local level by participating in charity events, local trade shows, offering presentations and educational classes.
  • RESA membership has grown to be the largest network of professional stagers dedicated to advancing professionalism and excellence in your industry!
  • RESA Leaders represent our constituency and collectively serve to hold our organization accountable in accordance with the RESA Mission.

RESA Buying Group
  • The RESA Buying Group uses the collective purchasing power of our members to negotiate lower prices and special offers than members receive on their own with regard to wholesale furniture and accessories. The RESA Buying Group allows members to increase their profits by saving them time and money.
Education
  • The RESA Accreditation and CE Provider Programs are a quality assurance process under which a real estate staging education provider or school has submitted their course materials and operations to be examined by an independent third-party, RESA, to determine if applicable standards are met. Should the educational provider meet the RESA standards, the provider receives an accredited status for CORE Education and Approved Provider status for CE Education from RESA. 
  • RESA offers monthly webinars specifically designed for additional support to new home stagers.
  • RESA hosts monthly virtual events with guest speakers focused on professional development.  These events are always educational and a great substitute for members who do not have a local chapter nearby, or in addition to monthly chapter meetings.
Agent Outreach
  • RESA has been focused on Real Estate Agent Outreach Programs through social media and through several local real estate associations.
  • RESA is the real estate industry's largest network of MCE real estate staging instructors offering "Staging to Sell, What Every Agent Should Know", a proprietary designation class that can only be taught through RESA, by RESA Approved Instructors. As a bonus, some states offer MCE Credits. 
Convention & Awards
  • Each year RESA hosts the industry's largest home staging convention, RESACON.
  • RESA members save 40% off all RESA Events.  
  • RESACON always includes a diverse line-up of speakers and are carefully selected to ensure attendees will learn new strategies, no matter where you are in your business, to catapult your business to the next level. 
  • The Home Staging Industry Awards are held each year at RESACON.  The industry's top home stagers showcase their craft and are recognized for their transformational abilities.  This is the industry's most prestigious awards celebrating the finest professionals in leadership, home staging and redesign categories. If you want to see the best, this is the place to be!
