"GET TOP DOLLAR FOR YOUR HOME IN THE SHORTEST PERIOD OF TIME WITH HOME STAGING"

Testimonials

Testimonials are so important when choosing a Professional Stager®. Be sure the Stager® that you use is Accredited. I would like to offer you some comments that I have received from a few of the clients that we have worked with.

Once our mother was moved to a nursing home, my brother and I had to go through the stress and emotion of emptying out her condominium on Wellington Crescent and putting it up for sale.

The furniture and décor was almost 30 years old and the place looked old and tired, but the condo itself was roomy and had a fantastic view of the river.

Our real estate agents Lee Almstrom and Bruce Harvey recommended Sharleen Slator from The Final Stage.

By the time Sharleen was finished, the condo looked truly amazing. The transformation was actually unbelievable! Because of her magic, we received MUCH more in the final sale than we would have if we had sold it as is.

I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we would never have received that price without your staging.

Thank you Sharleen.

It’s stressful enough to sell a home without having to worry about how it is presented to potential buyers. It was a relief to have The Final Stage take the responsibility to handle that concern. They were very effective and efficient and the final result was way beyond my expectations. We, without a doubt, were able to sell our home at a higher price and in less time.

Would we use them again – You Bet!

Thanks Sharleen

To Sharleen Slator of The Final Stage:

My husband and I had worked very hard for four months to renovate the home at 57 Thatcher Drive. Just two weeks before our Open House was scheduled I phoned Sharleen Slator to see what The Final Stage could do for our empty house.

I had planned on moving some of our own furniture into the house and borrowing furniture from a friend. The results would have been a mismatch of styles and still no finished look. Sharleen showed us other furnished homes and went room by room to discuss what her ideas were on staging our house. Her great sense of style and just the right touches inspired me.

I requested a mix of our furniture and hers. Sharleen worked out all the details of drapes, furnishings, paintings and accent pieces to make the house flow and show off the new renovations. The result was magnificent. We did so much better than we hoped. Four different parties bid and the result, after three days, was our house sold for slightly above our asking price!!!

The Final Stage is more than just “icing on the cake”. It is what is really needed to give the WOW factor in selling a home quickly. I would definitely recommend using The Final Stage for anyone planning to sell a home that needs furnishings or a “make-over” to ensure that a similar style flows throughout the house.

Dear potential vendor,

I owned a beautiful house on Jaymorr drive, in Charleswood, Winnipeg. When it came time to sell I realized that the house had a bit of a handicap. The style and decor was dated .Then I heard of this lady decorator that would fix the place of property that had been on the market for some time and in a matter of a day or two the house would sell.

My place had been on MLS for 90 days with no success. So I decided to try her services.

Sharleen Slator of THE FINAL STAGE showed up and made a plan of what was needed After 2 days of “STAGING” my house was put back on the market. 4 days of showing I received offers and the house was sold at my asking price. I really owe Sharleen for some of my success. Her taste and flair is second to none.

I truly recommend her.

Best of success!

Sharleen has a gift to be able to talk to people in a way that they are not intimidated, but grateful for the help that she can provide to them through staging.

Her personality and professionalism made it a pleasure to do business not only for myself but the Vendor as well. We were so impressed with how stunning the house looked after Sharleen furnished and staged it.

I would recommend The Final Stage to Realtors and Homeowners.

It was a pleasure doing business with Sharleen. The HOUSE SOLD….

— Suzanne Hall, Maximum Realty Ltd.

I would recommend The Final Stage to all homeowners who have their home on the market. Whether it is the furnishings of the homeowner or The Final Stage. For a very small cost we were able to sell our home for the asking price and in a very short period of time.

— Kevin Sanders

Sharleen took a home that showed well and made it spectacular! Her design style seems to appeal to everyone. My experience with her put me at ease with her ability to get her job done well and within a minimal time frame. Many people walked through the home after she had decorated it and asked “Can I take the furnishings with the house” I would highly recommend staging to anyone trying to sell a home.

To Whom It May Concern: The staging of the home located at 147 Eastcote Drive was essential to the final sale of 147 Eastcote Drive. There is nothing worse than showing a home that is vacant. It is tough to imagine what the move in look will be for the potential purchaser. Sharleen did fantastic job in staging 147 Eastcote Drive in making it look in show home condition.

Sharleen Slator of The Final Stage was efficient, effective and friendly. She dealt with us with great professionalism and the results of her work are outstanding. We recently had Ms. Slator stage one of our properties at 298 Ainslie Street which had been on the market for a length of time. After a complete staging, the home was shown only once resulting in an offer. On that very day, the home was SOLD! We are extremely impressed with the outcome and the overall turnaround time that we have now considered her to stage additional homes we currently have on the market and look to further similar results. A home that shows well …. sells well!!!

Just before Christmas this year I found myself in a position where I wanted to sell my house which I had only bought one year prior. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to sell it in the winter. My real estate agent referred me to Sharleen Slator, owner of The Final Stage. I contacted Sharleen and she came to see me within a day or two. I decided to hire her and she came in and made my home look like a show home. I honestly felt like I was living in somebody else’s home it was so beautiful. This was a very stressful time in my life and Sharleen helped me through it. The house sold within 2 weeks. I not only got the money back that I paid for the house but I got a little extra. I truly believe that if I hadn’t of staged my house, I never would have got the price that I did for the house. I would never sell a house without having it staged.

Dear Sharleen I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciated your help and expertise with selling my home. After I completed extensive renovations and remodelling of an older home I thought it was ready to sell quickly in a hot housing market. I was wrong and soon found out that an empty home does not attract any serious buyers, only people looking for remodelling ideas. After having the house on the market for 2 months I contacted Sharleen Slator at The Final Stage. She came in and showcased my home and instantly it was transformed from cold and unwelcoming to warm and spectacular. I could not believe the response from the 1st open house that followed, Nothing but Rave reviews and multiple offers. The home sold that afternoon for more than I could have imagined. You truly brought out a Diamond in the Rough.

Thank you

When I contacted Sharleen at The Final Stage, we agreed on a strategy for de-cluttering and preparing my house for sale. Sharleen set to work sorting, packing throwing out and giving away items that accumulated over the last 35 years. Her team scrubbed, polished, vacuumed, hauled boxes and re-arranged furniture. Some accessories were discovered in my cabinets, others were added from The Final Stage. Sharleen and her team were careful, quick, considerate and thorough in their approach to staging my home. I enthusiastically recommend The Final Stage to everyone who wishes to maximize their sale price. Mine sold well over the list price in 2 days.

— Flo Holigroski

We were very impressed with your professionalism and talent when we arranged to have you furnish and decorate our home. The finished product was beautiful and it made a huge difference showing the home to prospective buyers. We also appreciate all your helpful advise. It was great working with you and we look forward to working with you in the near future.
Thanks Sharleen.

— Rob and Toni

Sharleen impressed us from the start with her energy and optimism. We were under a tight deadline, having unexpectedly purchased one home before selling our current home.

In one astonishing week she prepared our home for an open house which resulted in five offers, all of them above our asking price. The stunning staging made our modest post-war bungalow look its best with beautiful choices of accessories and furnishings added to a few pieces of our own.

In addition, within the same seven days, Sharleen arranged for a thorough floor-to-ceiling and window cleaning, minor repairs, culling and disposal of 20 years of accumulated odds and ends, and the move into our new home by contracting with a local moving company.

Her professional services and project management skills lifted a very stressful burden from our shoulders and enabled us to start afresh in a new home in the best circumstances possible.

Hi Sharleen, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did on my Condo last month. I couldn’t believe the change, I honestly thought to myself did I live here? oW. Thanks again for the good work.

— Alex Stever

Hi Sharleen Thank you again for all the work you did for us. The house looks wonderful. You made this step in my in-laws life so much better and almost stress free. I specially appreciated that every problems we thought we had, you had a good solution for it and you took care of it. This experience was very positive for me and you can make sure that I’m keeping your card for future referral for my friends and family.

— Christine

Three cheers for Team Us!! Our house is sold Sharleen, after 4 days on market. I am utterly impressed with the job that your company did, as was everyone of my friends/family that came thru the house. You have the magic touch and we are so pleased!! I have enjoyed the staging experience to the fullest! It couldn’t have worked out any better. If you ever need a past satisfied client to speak on “staging” behalf, I would be 1st in line to sing the praises!! I will wait to hear from you!
