Home Staging Victoria BC

Home staging is more than getting your home ready for sale. It’s more than de-cluttering your space. It’s more than marketing your property so potential buyers can envision themselves in their new home.

Home staging helps YOU prepare for one of the biggest changes of your life.

Rave Reviews:

    Valerie Westra is an amazing home staging expert and a wonderful person to work with. She has great talent in turning the ordinary into extraordinary with her great eye for furnishings, accessories and original art work. As a Realtor with 37 years in the industry, I have seen literally thousands of homes. The difference that good staging makes to the value of a home is remarkable. It’s a fact; a clean, beautifully decorated home sells for more money and in a shorter time. I highly recommend Valerie Westra.

    I have used Valerie many time over the years to maximize my clients return on the sale of their homes. Recently, Valerie staged a vacant property that sold for 12% over asking price, in multiple offers! Valerie’s efforts and keen attention to detail make her shine over other staging companies I have used in the past. She is the BEST and I highly recommend her.

    I was very impressed with the results I got from working with Valerie. I was not able to be in town during the staging process but Valerie kept me well-informed throughout and I could not be happier with the way my property looked when she had finished her work. I would recommend At First Sight Home Staging Solutions to anyone interested in showing their home to its fullest potential.

    Valerie has staged 2 houses for me and they both sold very quickly close to list price. I was so impressed with Valerie’s talent that I also had her help decorate my new home and hang pictures in 2 offices that I worked in. Valerie just has a real knack for making spaces visually appealing. She is also a wonderful person and very professional to deal with.

    As part of my listing package I provide a staging consultation to each of my listing clients, regardless of type of property or price range. Even those sellers that have fantastic decor and think they don’t “need” staging are pleasantly surprised by the suggestions that Valeria makes. Valeria makes my job easier by working with home owners to present their properties at their absolute best. I highly recommend her to all of my clients and they have all been very pleased to work with her.

    As a Realtor I have referred Valerie on many occasions so when it came to selling my own house she was my first call. She exceeded even my expectations and my wife, who was a little skeptical, was thoroughly impressed. It looked so good we almost didn’t want to leave. Not only did we sell our house, we sold in in 3 days and for full price. Valerie has a tough message to deliver but my advice is to listen to her recommendations and do as many of them as possible, it will pay off.
