Bette Vos-Fant left a successful 27 year career in the corporate world of telecommunications in sales and marketing to become an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) Stager, business owner, and trainer. With Bette’s Master’s Degree in Education, she has found her passion for educating and training. Bette says “I believe education and passion are paramount to a successful business and in life itself”. Bette received her undergraduate degree from Louisiana Tech University and her master’s from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Bette is one of only 300 Accredited Staging Professional Master (ASPM) stagers in the world and to date has staged over 2500 properties. Bette launched her home staging business in 2004 in Dallas, TX and was one of the first successful home stagers in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
After leaving Dallas, Bette moved to Illinois and once again launch her staging business. Never one to stay “just because I have to”, Bette decided to move back to the Birmingham, AL area and continues working with realtors and homeowners there today.
While running her own home staging business, Bette became a Certified ASP Trainer for Stagedhomes in 2005. Her true joy comes from the passion she feels from helping to educate others about home staging and what it takes to run a successful home staging business. Home staging has been a “life changing” experience for Bette and she wants to share this with others.
Bette has earned several other designations including the ASP-SRS (Accredited Staging Professional-Senior Relocation Specialist), ASP REO (Accredited Staging Professional – Real Estate Owned), and the ASP BTS (Accredited Staging Professional Buyer Trend Specialist). Staying current and relevant in this business is important and continuing education courses is one way to make sure this happens.
On June 1st of this year, Bette became part owner of Stagedhomes.com when Barb Schwarz, the creator of home staging officially announced her retirement to the Staging. Our mission and vision as the new owners is to bring Stagedhomes.com and IAHSP into the future with continued success and growth.
Bette, originally a Louisiana girl, currently resides in Pelham, AL with her husband, Ben. Bette and Ben have 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren. Besides spending time with family and friends, Bette is also active in her church and community.
