Heritage Edwardian Home In Vancouver is STAGED TO SELL!

After years of waiting – city permits, renovations, contractors, etc. this 1902 Edwardian Heritage Class B home in Vancouver is finally being staged to sell, and it is a beauty! It was originally built by John Kemp.

Several years ago Dana J. Smithers of the PRES Staging Resource Centre auctioned off her ‘Home Staging’ services. The successful bidder wanted the service for a property her daughter was going to be selling. Even though the expiry date for the Staging was expired Dana honoured it because it was an exciting challenge to do a heritage home.

After meeting with the home seller several times to do a colour consultation, window treatment selection, fireplace tiles selection, the next step was to source for all the rental inventory needed in this 1300 square foot house. Dana and two of her PRES graduates met at Fluff Rentals and made the inventory selection. The client had thought some of their own home furnishings would work but unfortunately only a few items fit the look needed for the staging job.

This is how the property looked when Dana was first called in…

A few more visits and the flooring was in and the drywall was being painted…

Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
