St Boniface Condo Sold at an Unprecedented Price (in a Less Than Optimal Condo Market!) – 680 Tache – August 2023: The realtor (one of our regulars) of this condo doubted it could sell for the price the seller wanted (almost $600,000 for a 2 bedroom unit ), so she called us in to try to stack the deck in the seller’s favour. We were very confident, based on our highly successful track record with getting condo sold, that it would be sold within a month, though the realtor remained highly skeptical due to the listing price. We should have bet money on it… because it was sold in 30 days as a cash deal (no conditions) with a fast possession just 7 days later – the ideal sales outcome. Neighbours gave very kind compliments on the staging when we returned to collect our inventory and expressed their astonishment at the price, which was unprecedented for the building and the area in general.
Sold in 1 Hour! – July 2023 Mid-Century Style – “We had seen a home Chris and Linda had staged which was just stunning, so when we were preparing to sell our house we asked our realtor if he could track down who staged it. We were so excited when we were put in contact with Chris and Linda. It was important to us that the staging be true to the home’s mid-century era, and they knocked it out of the park. The attention to detail was well beyond our expectation. The staging was AMAZING, amazing, AMAZING. We knew the staging would be good, but we didn’t expect it to be THIS good. The house sold in ONE HOUR. Unconditional, cash deal (half million dollar price range). Enough said. Thank you so much Chris and Linda, the Home Stylists! We are really happy and appreciative for all your help!” – Mike and Krista
Luxury Builder’s Show Home: Summer 2023 – This luxury builder’s show home successfully enabled the builder to secure contracts with clients for several custom new-builds during the period of time it was staged and on the market during summer 2023. After we staged it, the builder (one of our long-time regular clients) said the staging made him to decide he will move into this home himself following expiry of the show home contract in November – and he wants the furniture!
Million Dollar Listing ~Sold in ONE Day~ Tuxedo (Traditional Style) Summer 2023: We were brought in at the recommendation of one of our regular realtors to give this 1980s home in Tuxedo a more updated, on-trend vibe through our strategic staging. The realtor advised his client that without our involvement it would be a challenge to hit the million dollar mark on this occupied home with its very traditional feel which may not appeal to today’s young, high income professional. We knew precisely how to marry modern with traditional to amp up excitement for the target buyer. We directed the homeowner to remove certain pieces, while working with as much as what we could as possible; then we did some strategic rearranging and styling.. and very importantly, we brought in some strategically chosen pieces of modern furniture from our inventory, along with some amazing high-end modern art to make a statement. This ‘hybrid’ style of staging requires a specialized skill set, so not all stagers do it, but we thrive on the challenge! Selling any home in the million dollar price range rarely happens in just one day, especially when a bit dated or quite traditional – but through skilful and strategic staging, we hit a home run!
Tuxedo Listed at $1.5 Million – High End Renovation Project: Stay Tuned for the Outcome!
Classic East St. Paul – The delightful owner of this home loved the way we transformed her home so much, she fell in love with her property all over again and changed her mind about selling!! This is not the first time this has happened for one of our clients. “This is CRAZY!” she told us when she saw her home after we staged it, “I LOVE, love, LOVE this!!!”
Fraser’s Grove – Sold in 14 Days (Multiple Offers) – September 2023 – This home was previously on the market for over 60 days before we were brought in to stage it. The vendor was so discouraged that in all that time on market before staging they didn’t even get a “low-ball”. They took the house off the market so they could have us stage it, and then re-list. We made a couple of recommendations on a couple of fast, easy and inexpensive cosmetic improvements we knew would be important along with the staging, and they did exactly what we advised – and then we staged this house in a manner that showed this home off to its full and highest potential. This house went from not even garnering a low ball offer in 60 days on market, to having two offers and a fast sale within 14 days of staging (a fast closing date was a bonus as well!). Previously the realtor had told the seller they’d have to substantially drop their asking price to get it sold, but instead the staging brought them two offers quickly, without any change to the original asking price.

February 2023 – “ I was BLOWN away! The home showed incredibly well with their beautiful work & attention to detail. We had so many complements on the staging from various realtors and all of the feedback was overwhelming. The home SOLD quickly in this now more challenging 2023 market with an offer we couldn’t refuse. I couldn’t be more pleased with The Home Stylists! I’m happy to have found such a dedicated team which I’m excited to work with again in the future! Thank you Chris & Linda! ” ~ Stacey Ayotte, Client (See more of our reviews on Google)
