What a year it has been as a home stager in Halifax! We rolled into our fourth year in business in the fall of this year. It was our best and busiest year to date.

When I started writing this I thought I might not have enough to talk about for a recap…but so much has happened!  Early this year we rolled out our involvement in HGTV’s Humble Home Hunters where we staged an owner occupied home […]

Home Stagers to the rescue 🙂  We had a call from a realtor that had a listing in Hammonds Plains in Halifax that was sitting vacant for several months not getting many viewings, and no offers.  The home’s great room was quite beautiful but without furniture and decor, like any house, it felt cold and lifeless. We were so happy when it sold in a week after staging the property.

We knew this gem wouldn’t last long! We fell in love with this property even before staging it. Our client renovated this property from top to bottom, removing all interior walls on the main floor.  During the renovation they unveiled the chimney and decided to keep it. What character it adds to the space! Our client’s vision was modern rustic, which we agreed was perfect for this property!  It was listed on Friday and they had an accepted offer on Sunday.
