ABOUT ME

I am wildly passionate about colour. I developed my fascination for colour and design at a young age watching my Mother mix and match everything, as both an artist and dressmaker.

In my career as a Marketing Consultant, I helped Real Estate agents with their branding and advertising. It gave me a sound grasp of the industry and refined my eye for colour, detail and design.

And while designing my clients ads I learned the importance of white space and how to make the key selling points jump off the page. White space translates in staging as “flow”, an essential element to invite the eye to rest on focal points. Both are key factors in successful staging.

By now I’m sure it’s no surprise my hobby all these years has been none other than using my passion and love of the physical work to transform rooms. Many friends and family members have reaped the benefits!

➢ So what’s next?
I recently partnered with my daughter-in-law, Heather, to stage a property which sold in one day. And Heart and Home Real Estate Staging was launched.

➢ So who are we?
We love what we do, love helping people and love to see the results. And are thrilled when buyers fall in love!

Our slogan is - Solutions to Sell. Lifestyles to Love.

HELPING HOMEOWNERS & REALTORS

HOMEOWNERS: Are you selling or thinking of selling?

Your heart is in your home. It reflects your personal style and holds memories you’ve treasured. An exciting chapter is about to begin. You look forward to your new home with giddy anticipation.

First, let’s sell your home which could be your greatest investment.

The steps to selling your home can be overwhelming and a big undertaking in today’s market. Home buyers want move-in ready properties. And they’re willing to pay more for them. To attract those buyers your property needs to be in good condition, presenting style, function and flow, starting with the curb appeal. Why? First impressions occur within 15 seconds.

➢ Where do you start?

CONSULTATION SERVICES- Success in securing the highest equity in your property quickly, starts with identifying the “condition” of the property.
Condition is anything that affects the sale of the property within the window of value.

Once invited into your home as a certified stager, I will use an objective eye as a trained professional. I will take 2-3 hours to inspect your home, then present you with your personal Room Ready Handbook which allows you to get started immediately. It’s a room by room easy to follow “task list” that gives you satisfaction as you accomplish tasks.

✓Also included - paint colour recommendations some rooms need to be painted to best showcase your investment, curb appeal suggestions and on-going support throughout the work.

➢ What will you learn?

What to clear or pack away for your future home, repairs, depersonalizing, replacing, organizing and cleaning. ✓ You can do all of this yourself! And your reward – You’re more prepared when you move!

✓ I will treat you and your home with dignity, respect and professionalism.

➢ The Next Step - Reveal the homes true potential.
Once the staging work is complete we offer the transformation part - showcasing.

➢What is Showcasing?
Enhancements to prepare the property for market by placing furniture, lamps, accessories and hanging art to maximize the size, flow, and impact of each room, ensuring you have great photos and impactful showings.

➢The end result – A fresh, inviting property that is the most competitive it can be, to allure the buyer.
