What Clients are saying about Center Stage Design:
"We were thoroughly impressed with the service provided by Center Stage Design from start to finish. We relied on Karen's expertise in selling two seperate properties, one of which was our home that we had lived in for the past 6 years and the other was a vacant property that we had never occupied. In both instances Karen showed a keen eye for what needed to be updated and changed. We were particularly impressed by Karen's persistence and perfectionism; she clearly took a great deal of pride in ensuring that the houses looked their best, and it certainly paid off in the end."
"We really appreciate your advice and suggestions, and most of all your repeated visits and honest frankness about the changes we needed to address. I much prefer someone who is forthright with their thoughts and opinions and when it comes to something important like selling one's home, it is so necessary to have someone like you who is willing to be just that as well as ready to step in with practical suggestions on possible solutions. You went well beyond the call of duty with your repeated visits, not to mention bringing your husband along to provide a second opinion. I really can't thank you enough for all of that; it was much more than we expected from a home stager."

'I've hired Karen to stage several of the properties I've been contracted to sell and I was amazed at the difference it made. I was a skeptic and believed I could "do it myself". I should have known better. You should always hire a professional to do the job. Even in homes that needed only some minor "tweaking", there was a huge benefit. She has an eye for the job and is not afraid to work hard and quick. She's sensitive to the fact that we are dealing with people's homes and very professional. As a realtor I would definitely recommend her services to my colleagues and as a home owner, I plan to seek out her expertise when I re-decorate! She's creative, knowledgable,trustworthy and easy to deal with.

When it came time for my husband and I move we found a great real estate agent who was committed to helping us sell our house. Having never had experience selling a house before I was a little stressed about the process and how much work it was going to be. At the time we had a four month old baby and I worried about how I would ever find the time to get our house ready to go on the market. Luckily, our agent offered us the service of a home stager. What a great service!! This is why we knew he wanted to sell our house as much as we did because he wanted our house to look great for prospective buyers. Karen came to our house a couple of weeks before we planned to list our house to give us some suggestions and helpful hints on how to make our house look great. All of her ideas were helpful but most of all practical. She took into consideration the fact that we had a baby and time wasn't something that we had a lot of. We had planned on doing some painting and she was able to give us advice on colours that would be appealing to buyers and that went well with our decor. Karen also came back a few days before we listed to help us with some finishing touches and she even brought some of her own decor items to pull everything together. It was so great to have the house all set and ready to go before the house was listed because it made it much easier to prepare for the showings. Most importantly our house sold in 3 days! I give a lot of credit to Karen for helping us make our house look its best!

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Karen on several of my listed properties and can honestly say that she has a unique and effective approach. Karen has been successful in taking the most cluttered, unattractive spaces and transforming them into something special. She does this while remaining sensitive to the concerns of the homeowner and to the budget of the Realtor. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone who can benefit from her services. They won’t be disappointed."

"We hired Center Stage Design to stage our house and were so impressed with the outcome. With Karen’s magic touch and attention to detail, our home was transformed from nice to fabulous in a few hours. It was well worth it and from the feedback we received made an impression on potential buyers. We not only sold our home but for more than was expected. We recommend Centre Stage Design to anyone who wants maximum return on their home."
