Staging allows us to accentuate the positive aspects of a home and make it inviting and aesthetically pleasing to potential buyers. After an initial walkthrough with our staging consultant, we provide our clients with a list of recommendations, ranging from decluttering and depersonalizing the space, to simple fixes such as repainting or switching out light fixtures to freshen up, neutralize and modernize the property.

 

With a full-size in-house staging warehouse, our listings at The Gracie Group have the added benefit of an extensive collection of furniture, accent pieces, soft furnishings and greenery with an array of colour schemes and feels which are assigned based on the style and age of the home.  Browse our before and after photos that allow you to see the benefit of our inclusive staging and the instant wow factor that allow us to stand out from the crowd.

Vacant Homes

When we acquire a listing that is vacant, having the ability to create vignettes from a blank canvas allows us to help potential buyers envision themselves in the space. See some of our vacant listing before and after pictures below:

Tenated Homes

Listing a home with current tenants can present unique challenges, as we respect the personal space of our residents. In some cases, tenants may prefer not to declutter or have their living areas photographed.  The photos below illustrate a listing captured during a tenants stay, where cooperation for the photoshoot was limited.  After the tenant had moved out,  we relisted and staged the home, resulting in a remarkable transformation.  We appreciate the understanding and flexibility of our tenants throughout this process.

Decluttering Homes

Busy lives and not enough storage can contribute to the accumulation of our personal belongings. The before and after photos below show the drastic difference stripping back a space to its bare-bone state can make in the presentation.

Makeovers

When we visit a listing that is either dated, in need of a freshen-up, has poor lighting, or has had smokers or lingering smells, we typically make some simple suggestions for a makeover that will help neutralize the space. The following before-and-afters show the difference new paint, flooring and light fixtures can make in totally changing the look and feel of a home. We like to think of it as revamping without breaking the bank.

What our clients say about us

Joe is very well informed on the market, his knowledge and skills are outstanding. His commitment is over and above, he was always available to answer questions and concerns.

We met and used Shelley Baker-Gracie’s services to sell our home, but we weren’t just looking for any real estate agent, we needed someone with compassion and empathy in order to work with us due to my wife’s medical condition.
Shelley shone like the sun in this regard as she took our needs into consideration and worked with us every step of the way in order to make sure everything worked for us and my wife was comfortable with the approaches.
Not only did Shelley get our house sold but she also went further above and beyond to help us secure a rental while we awaited our new build to be finished.
We can’t recommend Shelley enough. If you’re in need of someone to work ‘with’ you to sell your home (or buy!) and not just treat you like a paycheck, then reach out to Shelley and team.

Shelley and the Gracie group have done an amazing job on selling my fathers condo. She and her team of stagers and her list of contractors does not disappoint. In such an emotional time, Shelley and her team ensure that selling your home is as stressful free as possible. She puts in the extra time to help get whatever needs to be done complete. The staging transformed my dads condo into a warm, inviting home that others would desire. It is because of the extra touches and efforts of the Gracie Group that it was as seamless as possible. We got over asking price and couldn’t be more ecstatic with the Gracie groups service. Thank you to the Gracie group for making this process as effortless and pleasant as it could be.
