Why professional staging?
Statistics show that a professionals staged home sells faster and for more money.
Sometimes a home needs a major transformation, but sometimes it's just moving a couch and adding some decor. Often these small changes can still have major impact!
The fact is that most buyers shop for homes online these days, and in the current market it is more important than ever to have eye catching listing photos in order to stand out from the crowd. Buyers have a difficult time visualizing themselves living in an empty space, and even more so when that space is a small square on a computer screen. Staging puts your listing’s best foot forward and invites the buyer to view it for themselves in person.
Staging Consultation - $250
This includes a 1-2 hour onsite consultation with the homeowner. During the consultation, we will meet onsite to review the space, room by room and discuss the differences between interior design, staging, and the basic philosophy. With this philosophy in mind, we will make recommendations on items to move, remove, and other items to be brought in. We will also offer tips on how to use decor appropriately, discuss the importance of decluttering and make any other necessary recommendation to help them prepare their home to sell.
After the consultation, a staging report will be sent, outlining our suggestions, including pictures with markups and a checklist of items to complete before they list their home. We are available by phone or email to discuss any questions or concerns the homeowner may have.

Our Staging Team
Licensed CIR Realty Realtor ®
My love for architecture and interior design led me to begin studying Architectural and Building Technologies. During my studies, I realized quickly that it was the interior design aspect of the work that kept me the most inspired. I decided to branch off and work with residential renovations, managing projects for clients while also having my own renovation projects on the side. My passion for designing and arranging spaces evolved along this journey.
I love working with people and believe that every house and its architectural details are special. It is for this reason that I specialize in occupied home staging, redesign and real estate. I enjoy educating realtors and homeowners on the power of home staging.
When I work with redesign clients, I understand that a home and its furnishings don’t have to cost a fortune to be beautiful. Whether staging or designing, I am equally engaged working with items my clients already own and treasure or starting from scratch if it fits your budget. More often than not, a job will entail both using what you own and supplementing with new purchases or rental pieces to achieve a fresh, stylish look. Decorating and staging shouldn’t be intimidating. If you want to be part of the process, I’ll teach you as we work together to create your new space. If you’re a “hands off” person, I’ll do it all for you.
Together we can work towards creating an emotional connection between your property and their prospective new owner.
Certified Home Stager and Photographer
I am a small town girl that grew up in Northern Saskatchewan with a wonderful family! As soon as I was able, I was on an airplane travelling the world, meeting new people and experiencing great things! After I saw as much as my budget would allow, I decided I better get some education and make something of myself! I have a business background, specializing in HR and finance and most recently have followed my creative passions into photography and home staging.
I truly feel that home staging should not be saved just for when you are moving out or in a home. Home staging is also perfect when you're living in your home and not quite sure what to do or where to put that something. I am very proud and passionate about staging and photography and look forward to how I can help you.
After years of experience working for others, in a variety of industries including franchising, art education, marketing, business consulting and corporate, I ventured into Home Staging with a love for design and creativity. That leap of faith has allowed me to do what I love.
Preparing to sell your home can be intimidating, and that's why I am here, to help you curate your home to sell more quickly and get you top dollar.
