I was out of country when we decided to put our home on the market. When I arrived back to get the place ready to list I must say I was overwhelmed. Susan came in, we decided on the services she would provide, then we went to work. I have to say that with Susan's organizational, staging and management skills the one week process proved to be invaluable to me. Her staff were extremely professional. After one week I left feeling that my home was a show piece. Like Susan says, you live in your home one way but when you are selling it must look perfect and mine certainly did when she was finished. I would highly recommend Susan and her staff.

It was a pleasure working with Susan Clarkin from Polka Dot Home Staging. Susan was great at listening and executing the minimalist look we were going for with the house. She chose the perfect furniture, accessories and accents to create the “WOW” factor that we were looking for. She was mindful and respectful in listening to our ideas. She’s a professional, would totally work with her again. Highly recommend her.

We had been in our home for 21 years and there was a lot to do to get it ready to list on the market. We were very overwhelmed. We honestly could not have done it without Susan from Polka Dot Home Staging’s help. She helped us feel at ease, and design ideas helped our home to show its very best potential. Susan was professional, hard working and flexible. She absolutely brought her wow factor. I Ould strongly recommend Polka Dot home staging to any potential home seller.

Working with Polka Dot Home Staging made a huge difference in the sale of my home. The sold sign went up after 6 days thanks to the amazing work Susan did to beautify my home. She worked hard to stage my home in a way that showed off all the home improvements I had done. My house looked so great once she was done I almost didn't want to move!!! I can't say thank you enough! I will be sure to recommend your services to all my family and friends.

Hiring a professional comes with expectations. Susan at Polka Dot Home Staging came to me as a reference. Great reference!!! Susan contacted me quickly and was punctual at our appointment date. First foot in the door, Susan was looking , observing, using her 'eye to detail' skills. Susan took her time and double checked everything. what I appreciated the most from Susan was her willingness to share 'why' I should accept her instructions and suggestions, rather than ' just do it'. Susan had committed 3 hours to me and when she was done with her assessment, there was time left. Susan insisted on helping move a few pieces of furniture around until she got it just right. So, I do not know about you, but how often do we really get what we pay for? Then to my surprise, Susan showed up at my door 20 minutes later with boxes that I could use to pack some of the 'bric a brac'! 'Above and beyond' comes to mind. Need I say more? Check out the photos-Susan's assistance was instrumental in emphasizing the positive features of the house, presenting my house as a desirable place to reside. Were my expectations met, and did my house sell quickly? You betcha. P Budd, Hamilton, ontario

Susan & Laurie you are the best home designer’s in southern Ontario! I can’t thank you enough for transforming this home for our family. I’m still so impressed with the difference your suggestions have made. My husband and I were overwhelmed once we occupied our new home and had such difficulty knowing where to start. Our home had tons of potential and you both have helped bring our ideas to fruition. Your offer to go shopping with us for new light fixtures was such a big help and you saved us quite a bit of money…you are savvy shoppers! We wish you much success.

Thank you again, Polka Dot Home Staging, for being there when we needed you! The patience, sensitivity and professionalism you all showed in dealing with my elderly parents was very impressive. You made what seemed an impossible job to us, a possible one, and we are very grateful for that! The house sold very quickly, and with your help my parents settled into their new home quickly and smoothly.

I have lived here in my home for over 50 years. I didn't know where to start or how to begin. I was overwhelmed. However, once it got started, it all went well. There was furniture that was too heavy and too much of it. The rooms look bigger and brighter now. It was a great experience! Thank you.

I must say that I was hesitant in thinking that "staging" would make the difference in selling our condo until I saw Polka Dot work their magic in our apartment! Not only were they quick in their set-up but when they were finished, it looked like a "model" suite. Their attention to detail was evident. No room was overdone. Anyone who walks into the apartment could see themselves living there. I would highly recommend Polka Dot Staging.
