Hello! Thanks for stopping by —
I’m a Canadian Certified Staging Professional® and a Certified Colour Consultant®, and my company is Elegant Strategies for your home. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, I am a seasoned home stager. In my previous life, I was an event planner and organizer, with experience in the private, public, non-profit and volunteer sectors. This has contributed nicely to my project management skills (such as your home). I have a proven track record of getting things done. Above all, I am passionate about helping clients make the most of their home.
I pride myself on my ability to stage occupied homes. I use or ‘redeploy’ as much of a client’s furniture and accessories as possible. This keeps your rental charges to a minimum. Rental fees are what deter many people from considering professional staging — “a monthly charge for furniture when I don’t know how long my home will be on the market? No way!” This expense can be minimized by a creative professional home stager. I have the knowledge and the commitment to make the most of your home; if your existing furniture and accessories are in good condition and will help you sell, they, and not rentals, will be used. I do everything possible to keep your home ‘livable but lovely‘ while it’s on the market.
I belong to Certified Staging Professionals®. I am a member of both the Ottawa chapter of RESA™ (the Real Estate Staging Association) and RESA™ in California. I belong to CAPS (the Canadian Association of Property Stylists). I also am a member of the Ottawa Women’s Canadian Club. Find me on Houzz, under ‘Find a Pro’, and then ‘Home Stagers’ in the Ottawa profiles.

Service is available within the City of Ottawa – for example, Westboro, the Glebe, Sandy Hill, New Edinburgh, Rockliffe, Nepean, Bells Corners, Kanata, Ottawa South (Greensboro-South Keys, Hunt Club-Riverside, Alta Vista-Canterbury), Gloucester, Blackburn Hamlet, Barrhaven, Orleans and Navan.
