The Big Move for Images Staged with Flair.
By Anna Topolinsky, Owner of Images Staged with Flair
We needed to make the big move!It is no secret that the housing market in the Golden Horseshoe has been hot! Hotter than most people can remember it ever being. Prices are up and it has been a busy year for Real Estate Brokers, Home Builders, Property Investors, Stagers like us, and Movers too!
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.
Staged homes become sold homes!! All three homes were staged and sold, how much does it cost to stage?

De-cluttering and cleaning jobs are high on the list that real estate professionals recommend to home and property sellers.

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.
