All I did was....Home Staging Success Stories


Too much stuff... downsize using Transition Squad

Home staging in the Vaughan area does have one very time consuming challenge before we can stage the home for sale.

Garage sales are not popular in this area so almost every older home has from two to three decades of stuff in their home.

When Advantage Staging conducts a room by room consultation, I can see the home owners getting very overwhelmed with the thought of how to get the items not needed for staging out of sight so that the home appears spacious and bright for the buyers.

That's where the Transition Squad comes into play.

  When you call Transition Squad you will hear the very lovely voice of Laura.

 Laura and I work together with home owners who are downsizing or just looking to declutter their homes before they move to their new home.

 Transition Squad offers packing, in home estate sales, online auctions and even have their own consignment store at 3200 Dufferin Street.

 Once the goods are packed or sold, that's when Advantage Staging arrives to stage your home for sale.


It's as easy as one, two, three when you have a plan and professionals to help you.

Step one is the room by room consultation.

Step two is the prep work to get the home in condition to be staged. That may be packing up, painting, cleaning, repair work or yard work.

Step three is staging day. The day that your home is prepared for listing photos and open houses.

Transition Squad and Advantage Staging plan to make your next move as stress free as possible.

If you would like to have a professional team handle your next move we are ready to start when you are!
