Services and Rates

Free 30-minute Initial Consultation (phone or in-person).

Option #1: On-going.
  • $25-45/hour, depending on distance & complexity of the project.  3-hour minimum (especially if I provide hands-on-help).
  • Flat Fee version. This can apply to larger scale projects for Colour Coordination and Space Planning. It usually means I will be overseeing painters, contractors, or handyman services in order to complete our project.
  • Sliding scale available for those who qualify.
  • Decorating; downsizing; colour coordinating and space planning help; remodeling ideas; room configuration ideas; staging for rental or sale, etc.
  • Room-by-room. A primer on interior design, and decorating rules/tips.  Discussion of real estate needs.
  • Accountability as coach/guide/project manager, as I sometimes help oversee projects such as: obtaining painters, handymen, or contractors, and making sure all goes smoothly.


Option #2: One-time Consultation.
  • $150/session
  • Each session is usually a couple of hours in length, fee includes taxes, and covers mileage and driving.
  • Sliding scale available for those who qualify.
  • You will receive an emailed recap of what we discussed, to provide a user-friendly and instant resource.
  • This will include:  a detailed, room-by-room synopsis with photos (if any taken), guidelines for your downsizing or staging needs, colour coordinating and room configuration suggestions, potential resources for finishing your project, etc.


Option #3: Extra Design Services.

  • Drawings or 3-D computer renderings are an additional fee. Please ask me about these options, if you are interested.
Home Staging Services:
Option #1:   One-Time Consultation. 
  • $150/session.
  • Room-by-room.
  • Includes a detailed written synopsis emailed to you, for an instant reference. (Sent both to Homeowner and Real Estate Broker.)
  • This will include basics in staging/design, my suggestions on how best to de-clutter, downsize, arrange furniture, best colour choices, some colour theory, feng shui, etc., and a list of resources if needed.
  • If the home owner isn’t wanting to do the staging themselves…then the home owner and the Real Estate Broker will decide if they want to hire contractors, handymen, painters, professional organizers, packer/movers, and interior designers to complete the staging process.  The homeowner also has the option of hiring me for a full staging package.
  • Done In person. 
Option #2:  Full Staging Package.  
  • $500 minimum OR $1.50-2.00/Sq. Ft. minimum.
  • $500 minimum will usually cover a minimum of my time, as well as cover any basic costs of furniture, accessories, hiring help, rentals, interior design, etc. 
  • If we can’t cover your needs for $500, then we will always discuss any options that may be available. Yet, please be aware that regardless of the budget given to me, that will be honoured. So, we need to hold realistic expectations. 
  • The $1.50 – 2.00 square foot option usually allows me to hire handymen, movers, etc. Sometimes it allows me to help with downsizing.
  • Any major upgrades or repairs are usually handled by the homeowner.
  • Some professional stagers charge by square foot, some by the hour, and some charge 1% of the sale price (Many times this is to cover the rental fees for the furniture in their warehouses and general overhead they supply.)…I feel that charging per square foot, allows the client to be aware of their time and spending every step of the way. Since implementing this method, my clients have always felt happy with it and I haven’t felt the need to change it.
  • 50% is paid at beginning to provide a down payment. The other 50% is paid at end of project or at closing. Depends on prior arrangements.
  • *Again, as mentioned in other sections, I am sensitive that there are those with fixed incomes, budgets or job loss; and so we can discuss options.  Please let me know as soon as possible, though. Thanks!*
  • It’s good to remember that staging a home can sometimes bring in up to 3% more for a sale. 
Here’s How I Break It Down:
  • Staging a home or rental takes several days, if not a few weeks–depending on size of home, if there’s repair work, excessive de-cluttering or organizing, floor installations, etc. Or, if there are any other unforeseen circumstances.
  • If I can provide some painting, organizing, or repair then it will be included in the per square foot rate.
  • Installations, rentals, and sub contractors are paid directly by the client. (If I am overseeing these projects, then I consider it my responsibility, and need to charge the $2 per sq. ft. rate.)
  • Day 1-2 (or more) –  My clients usually work alongside me, room-by-room, while we de-clutter, organize, move furniture, or decide what will need to be added. 
  • Day 2-3 (or more) – We create a design plan and shopping list, and then determine budget for each room.  When a home is completely empty, then I will provide the basics from my own storage, and any additional needs.  Otherwise, the client and I will determine if we need to clude items such as art, pillows, bed coverings, and window treatments, etc. Once this has been agreed upon, then I do the product research and purchasing.
  • The product itself and delivery is charged separately, with a 20% markup + tax.
  • Day 3-4 (or more) – Dressing the beds, hanging window treatments, placing accessories and art, making sure all the furniture flows, etc.  BUT, if there needs to be painting, repairs, new floors, etc.  AND if I am over seeing these projects…AND depending on the contractors and sub-contractors schedules…well, it will take probably take longer than 3-4 days.
  • Day 4 (or more) – AND LEST WE FORGET…we will need to take care of the exterior of the home. I will need to oversee storage, plantings, curb appeal, path lighting, clean-up, perhaps even any painting touch ups, etc. 

Depending on my calendar, I prefer a 2-week minimum to get staging completed.  Obviously, there are times when there is a scheduling crunch, say if the photographer and open house are moved up–or when the closing date gets changed.  I understand; but I may have to charge an extra fee, especially if it includes weekends and extremely late nights…or if I have to bump another client, or ask them for the favour of moving their schedule around for you.
