NICA congratulates members Stephanie and Rich Marulli for achieving Certified Inventory Specialist designation.

The National Inventory Certification Association (NICA) is pleased to announce that Stephanie & Rich Marulli, owners of Home Sweet Home Inventory Specialists, LLC, have recently earned the designation of Certified Inventory Specialists (CIS). Achieving this designation confirms they have gained knowledge to provide professional residential and small business contents inventory services.

To earn the CIS designation, the Marullis successfully completed the required courses developed by NICA, agreed to conduct business according to the asset industry Code of Ethics, and accumulated a minimum number of Continuing Education Units. They then passed the Certification Exam, which is the final step in achieving this designation.

Having an industry certification is not required for the contents inventory industry. However, choosing to invest in continuing education shows a desire to learn and excel as a personal property inventory professional. Earning these credentials informs clients that they have gone the extra mile to ensure they provide quality inventory services for homeowners, renters, and business owners.

There is an increasing awareness of the necessity and benefits of having a prepared photographic and written record of one’s personal property. This knowledge and the ever-increasing busy lifestyles of homeowners and business owners alike create a growing demand for a professional inventory service provider.

Stephanie Marulli stated, “We owned Rich’s orthodontic practice for many years, and with my background as a teacher, we both see the value and importance of continuing education and achieving certification. We believe these credentials are essential to show our clients our level of professionalism.”
