Areas of Expertise
Statistics are showing that Staging your property prior to listing it with a realtor will do two things: sell your property more quickly and, in this market, reduce the amount of time it is listed! Ultimately, staging your house increases your net profit and often prevents a price reduction. AtTwiqueswe work with you to create spaces which appeal to the majority of buyers. We can either give you a written report so you can do the staging yourself, or, we can do the work for you. We can pull pieces from what you own, or we can arrange to provide you with rental pieces to give a cohesive flow to the house allowing potential buyers from a wide market to envision themselves living in your house. Perhaps you need to update and neutralize your paint colours, with the new to Canada, Dewey, We Make Color Easy system, Twiques can colour match to your existing furnishings to create that designer polished look which will best promote your house. Once you are in your new home, we can assist you with ReDesign for living services, colour consultations, recommendations for furniture, or simply assist you by placing your existing furniture to its' best advantage.
Realtors interested in giving their clients the advantage in the slowing market will want to include a pre-staging consultation as a value added service to help them prepare for staging their home for selling. Get in touch for special realtor pricing!
I have never used a professional design service and was a little nervous. Judith came for the initial consultation and I felt more at ease afterword. After I hired Twiques my clutter and organizing problems were solved!
In one day, they were able to magically transform my misplaced disarray into a designer showcase, without throwing anything out or buying anything new! The house is now light and airy, highlighting my favourite Asian pieces as well as my beloved blue and white porcelain. Now I see the power of a Twiques redesign!
~ Mia Burnaby, BC
We were exhausted at the prospect of what to put where and how to make our furniture look its' best. Twiques quickly placed our furniture to its' best advantage. Judith and her staff were professional and quick. In a very short time our main living spaces were set up and we could relax knowing our space looked great!
~ Lou and Georgie, West Vancouver, BC
Many thanks for all your efforts in preparing my home for sale in the Lower Mainland housing market.
In a matter of a few hours you removed the clutter, highlighted the main features of my Living room, transformed the bedrooms with a few lovely touches that were relatively inexpensive and made the entire home more appealing to potential buyers. I admit I was skeptical about "staging" at first, but my home sold in one week.
Many, many thanks.
I must admit that I was rather sceptical with the idea of having my home staged before putting it on the market. I thought it looked just fine! However, the change Judith crafted in just a few short hours by shifting, moving, repositioning, and, yes, "twiquing", was appreciable.
Judith paid close attention to colour schemes so they flowed from one room to another. She simplified throughout by eliminating un-necessary accessories, all the while focussing on continuity, warmth, and ease of access. It was a work of art!
With your expertise, my home sold in four weeks! Thank you Judith!
