What is IAHSP?

Our Partnership

One of the few Austin area Master level stagers, Michelle brings a keen eye for design and her strong administrative and sales/customer service skills to the partnership.  Real estate and design have always been an interest of hers. A founding partner, Michelle is very proud of the body of work that the Bella Casa Team has produced.  "We are always striving to take our work to the next level and are committed to offering our clients the best product possible."  She aspires to never stop learning more about herself and her industry, so she appreciates that Lisa will always challenge her to reach and grow! She loves showing off Austin to visitors, the Austin music and food scene, the theatre, dogs of all kinds, wine and just spending time with her family and friends.  Most of all, she loves to laugh!  She has been married to Cory for 26 years and they have 2 boys; Nolan, 18 and Caden, 16.  

Serving the greater Austin area, the Bella Casa Team understands the subtleties of each individual micro market and know what it takes to present your home in its best light for the widest appeal, resulting in less time on the market and bigger profits for you!

ASPMaster® Stager, IAHSP®

The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® (IAHSP®) is the only professional Home Staging Association that is dedicated strictly to the Home Staging Industry. The Home Staging Industry is part of the Real Estate Industry and not the decorating or design industries. IAHSP® was founded by The Creator of Home Staging®, Barb Schwarz, who for over 39 years has helped educate Realtors®, sellers and Stagers about the art and business of Home Staging.

The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® is the proven Distinguished Home Staging Association for guiding and leading the Home Staging Industry. IAHSP® stands for and subscribes to Ethical standards and principles of Excellence and decades of Experience in proven educational practices.

No other Home Staging Association has the history and positive record based upon year after year of proven methods, principals of ethical practice and standards of excellence that The International Association of Home Staging Professionals® has.

We've been friends for over 17 years. Both having entrepreneurial spirits, it was natural for us to partner in this business. Our children have grown up together and our families have vacationed together. We finish each others' sentences and we laugh... a lot! For our clients, this means we have a rare ability to bring out talent in each other and work well together, creatively and with no ego. We have great communication skills, we bring a positive energy to every project we take on and a great deal of passion and humor to our work.  Let's face it...moving is stressful, so a little levity can go a long way! 

We understand the amount of work and patience it takes to sell your home and the emotional toll it can take on your family. We've been there ourselves and it wasn't pretty!  That is why we are such believers in the staging process.  Our goal with each project is to save time and money for homeowners and realtors. The sale of your home is our success...we put a great deal of pride in our work!
