You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression!
What is Staging? Staging is the process of preparing any home for sale, regardless of price or location. Staging is a service, usually executed by a professional, to enhance property presentation using lifestyle selling techniques, to secure an acceptable offer from a buyer.
How much does staging cost? A lot less than a price reduction on your home! In fact, staging helps ensure that you don’t lose money by securing the equity in your property. In today's market you simply cannot afford not to invest in Home Staging.
How is Staging Done? 3 simple steps
1. Staging Consultation
This initial step begins with a review of your property. The consultation usually takes from 1 to 2 hours in which we determine the condition of your property, recommend the removal or addition of furnishings, and suggest repairs to be addressed and color updates to consider.
"Before" pictures of the home will be taken to develop a prioritized "to do list" and create a staging plan.
2. Implementation Plan
Homeowners follow our recommendations based on written report results regarding necessary de-cluttering, cleaning, packing, painting, repairing and upgrades. Do-it-yourself homeowners may complete this step at their own pace and prior to the return of our staging design team. We can also help busy homeowners who don't have the time to do all this work. We can do as much or as little as you require (e.g., arrange trades people for the larger jobs, furniture rental, pack extra items, etc.).
3. The Staging and Showcasing
Once Step 2 is complete, we will come back to create magic. This step includes the use of lifestyle selling techniques to put the final touches and design the "model home", creating great buying signals throughout your home.
"After" photos will be provided to the real estate agent for internet listing of your property.

Client Success Stories:
I met Aurora during the CSP course in Calgary. She was very friendly, professional person who seemed very knowledgeable of the Interior Decorating industry with a very confident Marketing and Sales approach to building her Staging business. I specifically enjoyed working with her during the 3rd day of the course when we actually went out and Staged a property. She was always helpful, listened to the other team member's ideas and provided great decorating solutions. I am sure she will be a very successful Home Stager.
