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


All I did was.... complete 200 decor selections for Portrait Condos

Advantage Staging is comprised of a great team of people that will stage your home for sale. They know what the buying public is looking for and will create a look that will attract your target market.

They are also the team that builders call when they launch a new construction site and want their purchasers to have a positive experience when making their decor selections.

Whether the purchasers are first time buyers, investors or seasoned home owners they all have one thing in common.

They want their new property to look great!

Advantage Staging was recently selected to work with the purchasers of Portrait Condos by Norstar Group. This condo is located at 701 Sheppard Ave. West in Toronto.

It's always an exciting time for purchasers once they have made their decision to buy a new home.

It can also be a very daunting thought to have to make selections by imagining what their condo will look like when it is finished. Even when the property is for investment purposes, the purchaser still has to be concerned that they are selecting finishes that will appeal to buyers instead of selecting what they might like personally.

That's where our team comes in. We put together a couple of colour stories so that the purchasers can see how everything will go together. It is important in a small space to have a good visual flow from one room to another.

We have just finished decor selections with 200 purchasers. Can't wait to see the final finished product.

There are still a few units left for sale. You can read more about the condo here.

Remember, only about 2% of the population can envision what a home will look when selecting from small samples.

To book your appointment to have Advantage Staging accompany you on your decor selection appointment or if you know of or are a builder looking for an enthusiastic team that will work well with your purchasers call us today.

Hi Michelle ~ Congrats on getting this large project of 200 condos!  I'm sure it's been a busy and exciting time for you and your team.  Good to see you back here in the Rain!

HI Maureen, thanks for stopping in to read about this opportunity that our company was able to be part of the past few months. It really is a great way to use all the skills that we have while staging. Being able to see the "end product" is a skill that not many people have. Our clients really appreciated being able to rely on us to keep them focused while making their selections.

Glad to be back in the Rain as well! It's been awhile since I have posted here due to three major projects on the go. Now that they are wrapping up it will be a pleasure to catch up with the all the AR members that inspire me to reach for new heights with my business.

Hi Sally, it is an avenue of business that we have expanded our services to as Toronto is such a hot condo market right now. It has  the most condo projects on the go in North America according to the last article I read in the homes section of the Toronto Star. 

It's a great niche for our staging company to fill and the builders are happy to let us do this for them to streamline their process.

HI Wendy, it seems like such an opportunity to be able to expand our services when there are so many condos going up for the last few years.

Hi Kathy, I love this photo of us working with clients. We were all having a wonderful time that day. One couple were seasoned home owners and the other couple were first time home buyers. They were chatting with each other and getting to know their new neighbours.
