Testimonials for Sandra Kreutzer

If you are planning to sell your home and considering a professional stager I would highly recommend it. They see your home differently and will be able to present it in the best light to achieve the highest possible price quickly. We engaged Sandra and sold in two days and for over asking price! Selling of your home is a process and at times difficult. Sandra was sensitive to our concerns, professional in her presentation and committed to assisting in the timely sale of our home. Sandra takes great care in the preparation of each room with attention to detail and focuses on generating appeal to potential buyers. I would recommend staging to anyone selling their home, but I would recommend Sandra to my friends.

Sandra, as you know my home sold in 13 days in a market where my competition had been sitting for months. You took charge after I agreed to get the house de-cluttered and ready to stage. You have a natural flare like no other Stager that I have worked with. When push came to shove you were there Sandra. I couldn't have done it with out you. Thanks Sandra! You're the best!

Dear Sandra: It’s been pretty hectic from the moment we sold our home and bought a condominium. We have, however, not forgotten the important role you played in this process. Whether it’s called “staging” or “fluffing” or “decluttering” is not important. What is significant is the positive impression you made on us when Nancy Ethier, from Remax, introduced you to us . We followed many of your suggestions and ideas and it is unbelievable the difference that they made. In fact it came to a point where we looked at each other and jokingly said, “If the house continues to become so desirable, then we should consider buying it ourselves!” Sandra, not only did your ideas make a difference but so did the additional items that you brought in and arranged to complete the picture. We are convinced that through your services our house made a very good first impression on potential buyers, and helped to have the sale of the house go through so rapidly. So, thank you for your professionalism and expertise. We certainly enjoyed working with you. Sincerely, Elsa and Percy Skuy

Hi Sandra, Thank you so much for making my home a place where everyone would love to live. You have a special talent which you are now assisting clients to stage their home. The result is outstanding. You have an eye as to what you see and what you envision. Our home was cozy yet simple. I know my family loved it. I don’t want to give everything back until we move. It is that dramatic and I would love it to stay this way forever. I know you had a major part in selling our home. It sold in two weeks. I know that many real estate agents commented on the décor. I am sure you will be so busy as a result of your staging and how many people were happy with the result. Kelly Renzoni

Sold in 11 days, 100% Asking Price!

We were introduced to Sandra by our real estate agent and what a difference she made. At the first visit she inspected our house, took some pictures and sat down with us to review her credentials and then she laid out the process for improving the look of our house. With such a friendly, passionate, and realistic approach she mapped out the changes that should be made, and we felt very comfortable following her advice. The house looked much cleaner and spacious thus attracting many clients to the viewings. The proof is in the results - we got 102% of our asking price in just 5 days on the market - in a month that has been cited to be slow typically. We were so pleased with her work that we are engaging her service for our new place!

Dear Sandra, Our house sold in a day because it was beautiful! We have you to thank for enhancing the BEAUTY of our home so perfectly! Without a doubt, you created an incredible "wow factor" with your artistic eye, your detailed mind and your thoughtful ideas. You breezed through our home on Consultation day so gracefully while helping us to understand which items were best to remove, what should stay and what should be remedied. The resulting neutralization and opening up of space in our home was brilliant. The decor items that you provided were all so fresh, crisp, contemporary and a true compliment to our existing home furnishings. We were just unhappy that we had to give the stuff back to you!!! Also, we really appreciated the detailed written report that you provided for us which helped us sort things out and kept us on track without feeling overwhelmed. We hope to bring you back to help design/decorate our next home so we can enjoy your expertise and actually live in it too this time around! Thank you once more Sandra for everything.

Sold Over The First Weekend!

Dear Sandra, Thank you so much for staging our house for our recent sale. It looks spectacular and we know it was your expertise that portrayed the rooms as something from a designer magazine! At first we really pondered on whether staging was worth the expense, but it is as equally important as having a clean house to show. Thankfully we knew enough beforehand, such as tidy drawers, matching hangers, nothing on the floors in closets, etc. as that gave us time during the final rush to finish off your list of suggestions. Painting the 'red' bedroom a neutral colour with new drapes was nothing short of brilliant! Plus brightening up the bathrooms with white linens was amazing. All the throw pillows and updated art work really transformed so-so rooms into beauties! Our expectations were exceeded. Over 60 people came through in 6 days and we had 7 offers, selling for 5% more than the asking price! Again, our thanks and we wish you much success with your future clients. Sincerely, Leslie and Jim Edmonds

Dear Sandra, Thank you for bringing your staging talents to our home. We were amazed how you redistributed our furniture, and with the addition of your decorative items - pictures, bedding, towels,etc., and the "magic bed" - transformed our home into a showpiece. You made an average home look fantastic and more attractive to potential buyers. Our home sold in less than a week for well above asking price. You have an exceptional talent. This combined with your bubbly personality and high energy, made the selling and staging process painless . Thank you again fo your work and suggestions. We would highly recommend you to your future potential clients. Angie and Murray Thompson,Stouffville, 2011

Dear Sandra, You have been our lucky charm! I would compare you to a female version of David Copperfield - it's all about illusions. You magically staged our house and made it look bigger, brighter, warmer, more loving and more appealing. Everyone that walked into the house fell in love with the colour palette, set up of furniture and all of the small details: the pictures, the spa like feel to all the of the bathrooms etc. Everything just feels clean, crisp and cozy! We know the amount of hours you spend organizing and preparing your "staging canvas" are lengthy. We appreciate all of your hard work and generousity. A thousand thank yous!

Dear Sandra: Thank you very much with your help in the sale of our home. When it was first mentioned that "staging" our home would help increase the potential for sale, I was personally offended as I thought our home showed very well... it was clean, colour co-ordinated and even though we had lived there for over 20 years, the home was well maintained. After seeing some of your work and hearing your passion in your voice about how much you enjoyed your work, we decided to go ahead. Sandra, we were quite blown away that by the addition of certain accessories... artwork, cushions, lamps, throws, towels etc, the remake of our home and the "model home like" features proved that we had made the right decision and that it had been worth every penny paid. Sandra, you do have a gift and your passion for this field shines through... continue the good work and honestly, we have already told our friends in the area planning on selling soon not to forgo the "staging" part of the process... it is indeed essential. With many thanks, Judy and Bill.

What a great experience. Working with Sandra, who is a true professional was such a pleasure. What an eye for putting the right item in every room, not too much and not too little. Our home looked fantastic and was sold the first day. We would highly recommend Sandra to anyone who is thinking about staging their home.

We recently listed our home for sale and enlisted Sandra's house staging services. Sandra used a combination of what we had as well as beautiful pieces that she had in order to freshen up our home. She was a source of so many wonderful, creative ideas that we would never have thought of on our own after living in the house for over 20 years. We had a short time frame that we had to work in and Sandra saw to it that everything was completed ahead of schedule to ensure that we were absolutely prior to listing our home. We were thrilled when our house sold within the first week on the market and feel that Sandra's staging was a contributing factor. Working with her was an absolute pleasure! We highly recommend her services and would use her again in a heart beat.

Dear Sandra, First of all thank-you for your patience and guidance through every step of this extraordinary process. Not having participated in ‘home staging’ before we were excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. We have to admit this was a challenging and ambitious prep/staging pace from when we listed with our Real Estate agent to selling our home was exactly 2 months in total. We knew our home was unique but you could see beyond that and tap into your remarkable creative side on how to enhance and accentuate its architectural character. I/ we truly believe your imagination is limitless and I know you like to stretch your resourcefulness with every home you design. It was so comforting having you by our side to not only add another perspective but also to incorporate some of our own style so the house did not seem so foreign to us. That personal touch certainly sets you apart. Your one-of-kind design has inspired me for our next home and to explore and experiment out of my comfort zone. You truly live up to a saying said by Albert Einstein: “We are only limited by our imagination.” We wish continued success and we know that any future client will be in exceptional hands to make their house shine above all others. Your magic was without doubt so appreciated by us. Best wishes always, Kim & Don Mustill
