Malcolm Gladwell spoke of 10,000 hours to achieve Mastery; well, Liz has more than clocked hers!
Since 2007, the inception of their business, Liz and her partner, CSP International Master Courtney Schonberg, have staged over 3,000 builder displays and re-sale properties. The team specializes in full merchandising of builder models, vacant re-sale properties as well as re-styling for occupied properties and finish selections. Connelly & Schomberg are the only International Master designation holders in the state of Missouri and the only team with two principals who have earned the award. INhance IT! owns over $2M of home furnishings and accessories, which ultimately means they are truly top of their game and the obvious “go to” team when you want property SOLD in St Louis.
Earning the MASTERS of REAL ESTATE designation takes work and dedication; Liz earned 28 continuing education credits, is a member of RESA, attends conventions and earned her RESA-Pro status. The commitment for top quality workmanship and customer service has produced successful staging in millions of dollars of top real estate. Liz is a member of the prestigious Institute of Residential Marketing. Liz also holds the National Home Builder’s Association designations of MCSP (Master Certified Sales Professional), CMP (Certified Marketing Professional), and is a member of the Home Builder’s Association of Greater St. Louis and the St. Louis and St. Charles Association of Realtors and the St. Louis and St. Charles Women’s Council of Realtors.

Rae commented, “The International Masters of Real Estate Staging designation signifies a standard of achieved excellence in the field as well as acknowledged value for a stager who has worked tirelessly in the field. Professor John Ramsey said, credentials are about setting you apart, make you more employable, more valuable and knowledgeable.
