Goodbye 2017 and what a year it was!!!
What a year it was!!! This year was a fantastic year in Real Estate it was almost impossible to keep up with the demand.
Take a look at our video, Images Staged with Flair, a year in review. This year proves to be a phenomenal Real Estate Year that has proven to show fantastic growth in Niagara area properties. That growth created a trickle effect that spilled to other businesses that are involved in Real Estate.
Well, here we are another year has gone by and we are celebrating another Christmas holiday season and winding down the end of a fantastic year 2106. Hello my name is Anna Topolinsky owner of Images Staged with Flair, take a look at or video of some of the homes we staged this year. we were fortunate to work with top Realtors(R) Home Builders, such as Eric Wiens Construction and Bice Builders, both building quality custom homes.
We discovered that this year was the year that we worked with many home investors that buy, renovate, stage and sell. These investors have realized the importance of incorporating home staging into their budget as a very smart investment, knowing they will receive the best RIO on their money spent.
We would like to wish all or clients the very best for the Holiday Season and we look forward to 2017!

Home Staging: Before and after what a difference!
By Anna Topolinsky
In the last 8 years, we have staged many homes. We love looking at the before and after pictures as yo can see such a huge transformation. Some, like our vacant model homes are easy to stage. Our favorite types of homes to stage are vacant homes, where investors have put sweat and tears into remodeling and creating beautiful finishes.
Here are a few practical tips for staging your home. There are some big issues, like the oxblood feature wall, that are best handled through an extensive consultation (if not through a sound psychological examination), but today I’d like to address some short tips I have for you on some niggling little issues you might find when staging your home for sale.

Is your stager offering you extra added value?
Is your stager offering you extra added value? There are many stagers working in my field and my community. They are all very talented and they all do beautiful work. Most of the stagers I know and that I have worked with, work very hard and they strive to offer great quality staging and professionalism…. But is that enough?
In the last eight years that we have been in business we have worked very hard to build an incredible reputation in the staging industry and in the local community. In order to achieve this we have worked tirelessly to ensure that our clients were always receiving exceptional service and always delivered with professionalism. We deliver what we promise!
A big percentage of our clients are Realtors, Builders and Investors. Our clients goals are equal to ours, to sell their listings or homes as quickly as possible. Images Staged with Flair will offer a huge selection of current and on trend furniture and accessories from our fully stocked warehouse. we decided that wasn’t enough! So for added value we also offer all of our clients, Realtors, Builders, Investors and homeowners, exposure to all social media. Such as Linked-in, You Tube, Pinterest, Houzz, Resa Niagara, Twitter, Google plus, our own website and of course, Facebook. Posting our clients properties , on all of these social medias will boost the exposure of the home, thus selling faster.
We would like to announce our new added service…..For greater added value we have begun offering our clients professional pictures, we are also now offering a video for every home that receives a consultation or home staging. The more exposure your home or listing receives, the faster it will sell!!

Home Renovations require a Top-Notch Team, and Images Staged with Flair have the Best in Niagara.
By Anna Topolinsky, Owner
Providing valuable home staging services and home renovations requires a network of trusted professionals. Home staging companies must continually work to create, modify and update a large roster of businesses with multiple areas of expertise that meet and exceed customer expectations.
All business are dynamic and changes in management or process can affect service levels. If any of our partner companies fall short of our exacting standards, under perform in customer service or fail to deliver on time, on budget and on spec, they are subject to removal.
By retaining only the top trades and supports, we are confident clients will be extremely satisfied with their staging and home renovations. Images Staged with Flair must offer unique solutions, designed to sell that require a different mix of services for every client. To achieve maximum returns for you, we must be the best and everyone we work with must be the best.
Exceptional service provider, Kevin from Assit-u-move, has been a pivotal part of our growth and a great home staging resource. Kevin and his crew are always courteous, professional, dependable and flexible. Last minute moves and client requested changes never set them back. The care and concern for clients and their property are exemplary and they stand the stereotypical image of the surly mover on its head.
Korson Furniture supports us in ways that the customer doesn’t see every day. Owner Sheila Harvey brings a wealth of knowledge. I have had the opportunity to hear her speak at our Real Estate Staging Association Hamilton meeting and she always has time to promptly return calls, which is so important when deadlines are looming.
One thread that runs through all the trades and service providers and supports that are needed to complete a properly staged home is that they value their businesses as much as I do my own. Building up a fabulous team has been an ongoing process that began when we did, 8 years ago. I am thankful for their hard work, and professionalism because at the end of the day our client is not interested in how we staged a house for sale, but how that staged house sells.
