Creating Beautiful Spaces

About Us

Several years ago when selling our home in Calgary,  I did what I now recommend to all my clients. The first couple that came through the door bought the house.  Imagine our surprise!  I didn't know that the presentation of the house was so important.
The second house we sold was repainted a neutral color and we did the prepacking, cleaning and decluttering.  Again, the first couple that came to view the house bought it.  I had no idea at that time that I had staged our homes.  
I've always had an interest in decorating and completed several decorating courses.  I never pursued the decorating aspect professionally, but, rather helped friends and family decorate their homes. 
Some time later I discovered the formal name for what I had already done years earlier.  In 2008 I took a Home Staging & Redesign course through the CRDA. 
I realized how much I loved doing home staging.  I was able to combine the love of decorating with the love for staging to help people sell their homes!  It was a win win combination for me.
Having sold my own homes I know from first hand experience that when you have a home For Sale in Calgary, that the presentation of your property is extremely important.  
As the principal home stager at Creative Home Staging using my own unique style, formal training in Home Staging & Interior Decorating plus years of experience living and working in Calgary I can assist you to get your home sold quicker and for more money. I know what people in Calgary want to see when they buy a home and what that should look like. Staging your home can pay for itself and might not be as expensive as you think.
Take, for example, a customer, Jonathan, who was prepared to spend up to $25,000 in remodeling to spruce up a home that had been on the Calgary market too long.  I convinced him that he didn't need to do all the renovations they were planning on doing.  What he needed to do was bring some life in to the home by staging it. Using my own unique style I brought in furnishings, art, accessories and arranged them in such a way that created a new look and feel for the property.
It sold to the first buyers that viewed the property after the staging project was completed. Considering the mortgage on his vacant house and the money they would have spent on costly renovations, my services paid for themselves several times over.  The homeowner was also floored that it sold so quickly considering he was very skeptical about the staging process.
This is what Johnathan had to say about his experience working with Creative Home Staging:
"Well, I'm a true believer in staging now.  Our house has just sold within 2 weeks of being staged!  Full credit goes to you...you were quite confident & for very good reason.  You know exactly what is required, and you do it very well.  So thank you very much Donna!  I only wish I had talked to you 3 months earlier."   ~Jonathan H.~
If you are looking to sell your home please consider teaming up with me.  My attention to detail, unique style and personal attention will leave you confident your home is ready for the market.  I'm always available to answer questions or schedule a consultation.
Don't hesitate to contact me.  I hope to hear from you soon!
