Transforming Your Home to Sell or Stay

Dragonfly Staging & Design, Transforming Your Home...

To Sell
You only get one chance to make a first impression. We can create that first impression, making it a lasting one that influences the buying decision. Buyers will make a decision within moments of entering a property and many will use online listings and photographs to decide if they are even going to look at a property or not. Preparing your property for sale will help to ensure it is viewed and remembered.

We are committed to helping sellers maximize the equity in their homes. By staging your home to sell, we will showcase the best features of every room. Our goal is to transform properties so that they are "move-in ready" and appeal to the greatest number of buyers, resulting in fewer days on the market and a higher selling price.

Or Stay
No cookie cutters here. We provide tailored solutions to suite your lifestyle and reflect your personality. From colour consultations, closet organizing, or styling a room, to full design, decorating or organizing jobs, we can help. No matter what your needs, our goal is to help you achieve order and to create calm and harmony in your home.

The mission of Dragonfly Staging & Design is to help home owners realize the full potential of their space.
