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!

Staging the Bathroom: The Most Important Room per Square Foot in Everyone’s Home.
Major renovations usually include plans for updating the bathroom, so it makes sense when you’re home staging to pay careful attention to these areas. Even though they are utilitarian in nature, these rooms will have special appeal to prospective buyers and winning here can make a big difference in your sale.
Some definite no-no’s when staging your bathroom include, getting rid of the matching toilet covers and rug. Those items scream, “20 years ago” so loud that the neighbours will be able to hear. Replacing old socket covers, pitted
faucets and outdated light fixtures. Your prospective buyer will only be thinking of how much they are going to cost to replace and getting rid of the plastic shower curtain and all the water stains with it, should top your to do list.
You may love the ruffled crochet toilet paper cover with a doll’s figurine that has been in your family for years and you are welcome to take it with you when you move, but please pack it away now before the first walk through.
Check out “Unique Towel Folding” by curbnotes.com on YouTube. The almost half a million views are a testament to how important this exercise can be. Since your buyer will be checking out the linen closet, we spend some time here folding, rolling and otherwise organizing the shelves, uncluttering them to make the closet look as spacious as possible.
Since the old plastic shower curtain is now a drop cloth for painting, hang a new cloth shower curtain with a liner. Like all things in the bathroom, choose neutral colors and match them or select the occasional complementary colour for a bright, but subtle “pop”. Leave the shower curtain open a little if it makes the room look larger.
A quick wipe-down of the bathroom before anyone enters is required; and replacing old slivered, soap bars with fresh ones is a matter of good housekeeping, but making sure that everyone in the house is obeying the golden rule of bathroom etiquette is a crucial step for preparing your home for showing and that one truly universal step is to always, always keep the lid down!

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.

Junior League Holiday House 2015
Christmas is here and so is the 33rd Junior League Holiday House Tour 2015.
Images Staged With Flair were honored with the opportunity to participate in this exceptional event, we were asked to decorate the master bedroom, and master bath and office with Christmas decor. There were many hours invested in sourcing for the items that were chosen for the space, packing and set up of these rooms. Although it was very challenging to input all the work involved, it was also very rewarding to work with some of my colleagues and all the wonderful ladies I met from the Junior League. The 33rd annual Junior League Holiday House Tour
included three beautiful homes, located in Burlington, Aldershot, and Dundas. We had over 3000 guests that were wowed by all the beautiful Christmas decor that was implemented by many talented designers that gave their time for this great foundation.
Special Thanks to my colleagues Liz DiTomaso from Elegant Living Decorating, Lynn McMillan from Bellissimo Design, Sheri McCutcheon and Colleen Smith.
Below are some pictures of the space that we decorated
