About diva decor design

Mary Seferian started in the design company first by graduating from Lasalle College in Fashion Merchandising and then Interior Design. She continued her studies at Concordia University. She applied her creativity to some of the most successful fashion houses for the next 12 years. Once she combined her design and business skills, she created Montreal's P\remier Real Estate Staging firm, diva decor design

Feng Shui enhancing your home's style with proper color and furniture placement
Organizing and decluttering within the home.
We have alliances with true professionals. This includes painters, ceramic tilers, roofers, plumbers, florists, art dealers, furniture rental companies, cleaning crews, storage facilities, and moving crews.
We work with the real estate agent, where hand in hand we create a beautiful house. Our goal is to show the lines and architecture of the home. Without making this the focus, the potential buyer cannot "imagine" anything other than what they see in front of them. Home staging takes the guesswork out of what the house could look like, and instead gives the potential buyer a beautifully presented house right on the spot.
How do we Home Stage?
The initial meeting will be a consultation. This is where we come in to take pictures and measurements of the rooms that we decide to stage. We will discuss paint colors, changes in flooring, and any repairs that need to be made. We use the furniture that you already have. If that is not possible, then we have the option to buy new furniture (one that you will take with you to the new house) or we rent furniture for you to use on a temporary basis, until the house is sold. Accessories, bedding, bathroom items will all be added as well. We provide you with all the contacts that your home staging will need. If you need us to be there on Open House, we will come in with cleaning services, and then decorate with fresh flowers, plants, artwork, and catered food! All to "wow" potential buyers into giving them that "This is home" feeling. Our goal is to provide you with a service to ease your mind from all the details it takes to sell your home. Selling a home is stressful enough! Any amount of money you spend on Home Staging will come back to you ten (and maybe more) times over. Together, we will help you get your home sold for the highest profit!
My family loved the changes, especially my husband! When he got home he was speechless. He keeps saying how perfect it is! Thank you so much Mary I couldn't have done it without you. You are a great designer!Rachel Williams, Homeowner - NDG, QC
I finally sold her house. She did listen to what you said and it definitely made a difference! Everyone commented on how decluttered it was! E. Micyk, Real Estate Agent, Groupe Sutton
Mary! After trying to sell my vacant home without success, and now after the wonderful comments at the Open House, I am convinced that Home Staging is what sold this house. Thanks so much. I will be praising your services to everyone. Adam Hawrylak, Real Estate Agent, Groupe Sutton
I was so looking forward to your proposal, and was not disappointed. Can't wait to get started!Caroline K., Homeowner - Roxboro, QC
By the way, fantastic job on the house. A well spent investment. M. Avetissian, Real Estate Agent, Remax
Mary and her assistants totally transformed my home within a week. I had given up, but the didn't and now it's done! Now I'm having a hard time wanting to sell it!Anita Bourgeois, Homeowner-Laval QC
....and I couldn't believe that they came on Open House and filled the house with flowers, plants, candles and catered food. They made the place really feel like home for everyone. Rose Levy, Homeowner-Westmount QC
It took a while to get my husband to want to pay for services for a house we were selling anyway. But once the offers came in $20,000 OVER what we were asking...Let's just say that he doesn't regret our decision!Barb and Francois Lemay, Homeowners - St. Laurent QC
Using the services of diva decor design really quickened the sale of my clients' homes. The changes that they needed to make in their homes sounded better coming from a professional than coming from me. It just makes my job that much easier to do. Andre DeCastelnau, Real Estate Agent, Royal LePage
