RESP Graduate

You are learning from the best.

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about SLS Academy. I have had the opportunity to learn from Shauna Lynn Simon a few times now. She is, without a doubt, one of our top stagers in the nation. When you learn from her, you are learning from the best. I have completed the RESP training programs as well as all the additional courses she offers.”

Shari Fogg

RESP Graduate

The abundance of resources and tools she provided were exactly what I needed.

“I had done a lot of research for other home stager training programs prior to learning about 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 were exactly what I needed. I am now 8 months into my business and the post-course support she provides is also a huge asset.”

 Staging For Interior Designers


Award-winning instructor and home staging expert

After being laid off in 2008, Shauna Lynn built a home staging empire from the ground up. She grew her business to the biggest in her area and founded Styled, Listed, and Sold (SLS) Academy on the principles of helping others.

“When I saw new home stagers struggling to get started , I knew I wanted to support them. Home staging is often a second career and the first steps can be overwhelming.

Our certifications and courses take a real, honest approach with proven results. There is no sugar-coating or grand claims to fame just rock-solid advice that works in the real world.”
