Setting the stage for your SOLD sign

I’ve always been into fashion and design. Always reading magazines to keep up with the trends and some things just don’t change. My love and passion for design goes back to my childhood. Growing up in the Ottawa area I remember our typical Sunday afternoon family drives always leading us to visit model homes. I was fascinated with the décor and layout of the homes.

My family and I have been through the staging and listing process ourselves, and with two young children I personally understand the challenges that go along with staging and selling. The decluttering process alone with all the toys and accumulation over the years is not an easy task, but my job is to work with you to take the stress out of staging.

As a fun fact, I had the opportunity to appear on HGTV’s Design U television show for the redesign of my backyard which was a wonderful experience. I was bitten by the home design bug and decided to make a career of it so after 16 years I left my legal career to pursue my dreams!

I graduated from QC Design School in Ottawa with honours in International Home Staging and Redesign. From there, Holmes Staging & Redesign was born.

Home staging really does lessen the time your home is on the market, and that’s the goal Holmes Staging & Redesign wants to achieve. I am determined and energetic. I don’t give up until I get what I want. In the case of staging YOUR home, I won’t give up until I see the SOLD sign.

"We were apprehensive about listing our home in the Fall, especially in this softer market. Once our home was staged, then listed, we received wonderful feedback from all the agents that brought buyers to our home. Our home was on the market for one week when we received our first offer. Thanks again for your hard work and wonderful suggestions. You were a pleasure to work with."
