Home Staging Testimonials
"I had a vacant house on the market for over three months -- in a hot market. I had an accepted offer 6 days after you staged the house and it was unconditional within the week. I'll definitely be telling people about this."
Allan Pederson, Royal Lepage TPM Realty, Victoria, BC
"I've always thought I was good at design...my friends are always asking for advice. So I was a bit skeptical as to how I could benefit from a one day re-design, especially as we'd just bought and restored our house and thought it was looking pretty good. But there were some things driving me crazy.. being an old character house, the flow was challenging, there was nowhere logical (or attractive) to put the TV that made for comfortable seating, and no closet space and everything was just looking too cluttered. Well...not anymore! Val and her team moved things around to places I would never have thought of putting them...and it works! They also found wonderfull ways to display our collection of pottery and art from trips to France and Portugal, so they get the attention they deserve. Our living room and den look soooo much better and are so much more functional now, down to putting the file cabinet on an angle so we could actually access our files without having to pull the whole thing out. Even our old sofa looks so much better in the new location, we're no longer feeling we have to get rid of it right away. We're thrilled, and our friends are very impressed..in fact it looks so good we think we should put the house up for sale!"

"Thank you so much for your hard and fast work in getting my place ready for sale. I believe the staging you did made a huge difference to the sale of my house both in terms of price and equally importantly speed. As you know I flipped the house only owning it for a few months. It is amazing to me that the vendors I bought off of took over a month to sell the house and with your help it took me only hours to get multiple offers. I now have experienced the difference staging can make. The change to the layout of the rooms and the mass appeal you created was very valuable. We will meet again."

We have lived in a very comfortable, spacious condo for several years and decided not to have a "formal" dining room but the living/dining area was so big that I wasn’t sure how to place the furniture and then I heard about Val Sharp’s Sharp ReDesigns, and she changed our home from just o.k. to spectacular!
After several months, we had a real estate agent in as we were thinking about selling and she was so impressed with the main floor and how well it showed that we are able to sell higher than we had imagine and I owe that praise from the real estate agent to Val and her terrific team. Thank you, Val, for doing such a wonderful transformation.
