With over 5 years of experience in decorating and staging, I have helped hundreds of clients prepare themselves and their house for sale. The bravest of clients take all the suggestions they are given and implement as many as possible. Some sellers are still resistant to the concept of Staging, insisting they know what they're doing. But the nature of home selling has changed drastically over the past few years, and what worked before may not work this time around. Selling is a strategy, and the current market and the target market dictate that strategy. That what the experts are for - to help develop the best strategy to achieve a successful sale.
You helped me pick my colours, carpet, hardwood, accessories, everything, and now that's all in place, I wouldn't change a thing. I love it and I have gotten so many compliments on the project. I've given your name to everyone! - Linda, Non-profit Organizer
We decided to list the house at $699,000 and it was sold within 3 days at $690,000 with no conditions. We know that was because you and Shelley Staged the house - it looked amazing! I told the Realtor about you, and I told my friends and neighbours about you. You and Shelley did a wonderful job. - Leanne, Account Executive
We really enjoyed working with both of you. The house looks wonderful. Thank you! - Robert, Program Executive
We had a total of 7 offers presented on the house, 4 were received the first day the house hit the market. It was listed at $239,900 and the successful offer was $276,000 without conditions. I attribute that to your fabulous Staging. The clients are thrilled and I am so happy. - Amy, Realtor
It amazes me that Gabriele of Campbell Interior Decorating can figure out what I like better than I can. She can take a nice room and with a few changes pull it together so it is a fabulous room. Through thoughtful questions she gets to know your style, preferences and budget then gives you a magazine look, but makes it yours through personal touches. Working with Gabriele is a wonderful experience that I recommend to anyone who wants that "WOW" in his or her home - Mary Ann, Administrator
I wish to thank you for your valuable input with our 'project' in Sherwood Park. Your input was one of the best things we could have done in moving forward with this project. I feel so much better having your input, as does my husband. - Diane, Writer
I love the way my house looks! I think the living room is my favourite room. It feels so comfortable and inviting. Gabriele, you have such a great eye for space and how things fit together. I love that you used my own stuff to make the rooms look completely different. Thanks again!! - Karina, Graphic Designer
We can't thank you enough for helping us through our renovation. We know that without your excellent advice our home would not look as wonderful as it does. Thank you for all your time, and your patience (especially during my panic attack over the flooring in the kitchen and family room). Also, thank you for your wonderful ideas and style that made everything come together so well. - Denise, RN
I feel like I live in a whole new space. I have a dining space which I have never found room for in the past. At one point I entered my new living space after only a short absence, I came back in and I had a tear in my eye - I was delighted and amazed. Thanks to Shelley and Gabriele for their professionalism, expertise, their patience and guidance. - Nancy, Curator
I am writing this letter in regards to the exceptional service I received from Smart Organizing Solutions and Campbell Interior Decorating. In order to sell, these two ladies came into our home and gave my husband and I great suggestions on how to improve the appearance of our house. After two realtors and six months with no offer, we implemented their suggestions and a week later an offer came! Thanks again for your help selling our home! - Dan and Carol, Morinville
I am quite convinced that our home sold in 9 days because of the recommendations from Shelley and Gabrielle. Many of the comments that came from prospective buyers was how well decorated it was. Shelley and Gabrielle were able to use existing furniture and rearrange it for us so that our home looked more welcoming to visitors. In fact, after they rearranged my living room furniture, I couldn't help but wish that I had asked them over sooner. I would have to say that this was the best money spent and I would do it again in a minute . - Valerie, Teacher
My husband and I have had the same furnishings for 23 years and the majority of those began as hand-me-downs. With Gabriele's expert eye and an uncanny sense for adding style without sacrificing our lifestyle, she was able to turn our home into a very warm and welcoming haven for our family and friends. The wall colours and window coverings match beautifully with the new furnishings so that I can "mix & match" should I ever decide to move some furniture around. The entire house now feels and looks absolutely awesome! Many, many thanks to an amazing designer! - P.J., Administrator
We are so pleased with everything from the style to the price to the quality of installation. I knew we were on the right track with Gabriele when she brought us the first two accessories for our house. It feels like a show home! I can't believe this is our house. - Rochelle, Teacher
I just love it! I was a little worried about the fabric - would it work? But Gabriele made it work and I couldn't be more pleased. - Lee, Retired Business Owner
What Gabriele can accomplish in one hour of shopping would have taken me, with two children, twelve hours to accomplish. She can do my whole house at this rate. Thank you for your expertise and for being so efficient. - Sandy T., Sherwood Park
We have already implemented many of your ideas, and are very happy with the results. Thanks again! - Grace, Retired
