With 20+years of combined experience in home décor, “the SCheryls” strive to maximize the selling potential of your home or create that certain dynamic lifestyle that you visualize.
The Scheryls are Home Stagers and offer a specialized service for people who are preparing to sell their home or for those who have acquired a new space and would like help setting up when they move in. It does not matter whether it is a house, condominium or apartment.
Essentially The Scheryls work with the sellers/buyers and/or their real estate agents. We offer services in three areas:
The first phase: The SCheryls will come into the home and offer consultation throughout the entire home in terms of reconfiguring the space so that it shows to potential homebuyers in the best possible way.
The second phase: Once the SCheryls have given the home owners our consultation report, they can then choose to do the "work" themselves with regards to packing away unnecessary items, painting, minor repairs, etc. according to the consultation report. The home sellers can "hire" The SCheryls if they so choose to help with the work.
The final phase: This is the actual "Staging" process. The SCheryls will come in and configure the space to show it in the best possible way, paying attention to maximizing space and flow as well as focusing on architectural details, views and light.
Homeowners can choose all phases, or only the one(s) that pertain to their specific needs.
Homebuyers can request The SCheryls services to come and help them choose colours, lighting fixtures, window treatments and even furniture and then come in and Stage the space according to the owners taste and requirements. No matter what your needs are The SCheryls can be of help.

It is difficult to try to imagine what could be done in a room. Staging really helps to visualize and create a lifestyle!
Sheryl gently guided us to think like a potential buyer and see our home through different eyes. There is always a tendency to be defensive about your lifestyle, decorating choices and general clutter, but Sheryl helps you make tangible improvements that will put your home in the best possible light so that you can sell it for the best possible price. I now believe that her service is an essential part of selling your home, because when you live day to day in a home, you don't see the detractors that can decrease the price, you need a fresh set of eyes. D.Alsip, Mississauga
Friendly and efficient people....great ideas....It was wonderful to see how my home could be transformed by a lot of clever and practical ideas. I felt that you two were supports for me in that up-for-sale period when it gets pretty tiring and tiresome .A breath of fresh air! J.Mills, Scarborough
The results were measurable. "The home" was listed 6% higher than any other home of that type had ever sold. It went in days and brought the owners 5% higher than any other home of that type had ever sold. D.McPhee, Sutton Group Professional Realty, Brampton
I was treated with consideration for my time constraints and budget. My living area was respected as far as dust management through some needed renovations. I had assistance with recycling. I felt great respect and support whilst trying to part with the hoards of a pack rat. Additional labour was sourced to help with packing and moving my contents. In my opinion, my 20 plus year old condominium looked new, fresh and airy. From major and minor repairs, placement of furniture pieces and colour transitions, it all came together. In the buyer's opinion, my condo looked new, fresh and airy. It sold in a matter of weeks. Name Witheld.
