Testimonials

Stage Right! helped sell my house in less than a week!

When you put your house on the market, it becomes a product –
one that should be thoughtfully marketed and packaged. Stage Right!
will use interior design techniques to “package” your home – stage it –
to entice buyers to think, “This is the house I want to live in”

Stage Right! provides objectivity and design skills to maximize your
home’s visual appeal from the curb to each interior area. We provide
fast improvements or a full makeover – whatever it takes to elicit that “Wow!” reaction from potential buyers that results in offers.


I wish to thank you for the excellent job you did in staging for our house.

The team of Broker (ReMax), yourselves and our own efforts resulted in the house being sold over asking price and within one week from listing.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Having opened an office in June of 2009 and wanting it to look professional, I knew it was in my best interest to hire an expert. I spoke with the Stage Right! and listed my wants, likes and dislikes and more important -- my budget. Linda and Judy came to my office, took measurements, made suggestions, asked lots of questions and got specific on what image I wanted to portray. With that information, they went shopping. My office looks wonderful and it gives me great pleasure to hear the positive comments from my clients. I have no hesitation in recommending Judy Rough and Linda Sedgewick-Sharpe of Stage Right! to stage or decorate an office or a home. They are wonderful!! Thank you Judy an Linda!!!

I was very pleased with Stage Right! Through the incredible efforts of Linda and Judy, my house had a complete make-over. They took care of everything --from finding painters to cleaning out cupboards. They were also able to look at a room and see the potential of it, making each room into a unique living space. I would highly recommend Stage Right!

Judy's expertise's in home staging helped to sell two executive condo's in the Belleville area; one at Whitney Place and the other on Pinegrove Court.  In both cases they were previous listings of 90 days each that produced no results.  After "Stage Right" completed the staging both condo's sold within 3 to 4 weeks at respectable prices in a challenged market.  

Thanks Judy, your tag line is suitable-"The cost of staging is not only less than the first price reduction but also produces results".

My experience after 20+ years in the industry is that when price point and presentation are in alignment the property sells.

Judy and Linda, of Stage Right, know what presentation is about and specifically cater their staging techniques to appeal to the broadest demographic possible.

This increases the market appeal of the property and bottom line is “it sells faster and for a higher dollar value”, in other words many times more than what it cost to have Judy and Linda stage the property in the first place…well worth the investment for the agent as well as the client…

Of course the converse is also true, when a property is not presented i.e.’staged’ well the time on the market increases substantially and the final selling price , if it does sell is a considerable amount less.

"Thanks Linda. We have finished our refurbishing of the living and dining rooms and thanks to you, the colour scheme and window treatments were the highlight of the project. Everything worked together beautifully. We feel very confident when relying on your judgment for decorating ideas. Thank you again."

"After several months of unsuccessfully trying to have our house sold, we turned to Linda Sedgewick-Sharpe for an opinion on where we needed help.

Linda came to our home and provided suggestions on how to make the appearance of our house more appealing to prospective buyers. Her advice on areas that needed to be rearranged, colours to be updated and other improvements proved to be invaluable. As Linda said “the potential buyer
will walk in and say, I can live here”.

Linda’s professional help and understanding of the design market for home decorating was an integral part of the successful sale of our home."

" In February 2006, Don & I won a $7,500 makeover for our living room & dining room. Linda Sedgewick-Sharpe of L.S.S. was the designer and the results were absolutely stunning.

The fabulous sheers, the contemporary furniture, the fireplace renovation that could easily grace any home decorating magazine, the amazing chandelier and side lamps, the paint choices and the wonderful accessories, all flowed together to achieve a beautiful Tuscany-flavoured decor.

Linda also amazed us by finding stored-away prints, pottery, etc from other areas of our home and used them to punch up the whole fantastic design.

Thanks Linda, we love it and are so proud to entertain our friends and
family in this comfortable, stylish room."
Gail & Don Tapscott


"Dear Linda,
I am writing this letter to thank you for the wonderful way you handled my move.

You not only lived up to our agreement but surpassed it. You came into my home completely prepared with all the supplies you would need and packed up all my treasures as though they were your own.

You showed me so much kindness that there was no request I made that
was too small. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was for me to have you unpack, put everything in order, hang all my pictures, meet the movers at the door and place all the furniture and even re-hung draperies.

I am so grateful to you and wish you much success in your endeavors.

I would highly recommend your services. You are compassionate and professional and offered an extraordinary level of customer service."

"After 10 years of heavy use, our Shelter was looking very tired and worn. We were able to raise some funds for refurbishment, but really needed assistance in planning colours, fabrics and furnishings that would stand up
to the use required and also provide comfort and a homey atmosphere for our clients. Linda Sedgewick-Sharpe came in to assist us and she has created a look that is elegant, yet simple; comfortable and practical; and most of all, warm and comforting. Through the excellent use of colours and her sourcing of furnishings and decor items, she has created more than we had hoped for. Linda is easy to work with, practical, timely and a very good listener. We highly recommend her to anyone needing the assistance of a designer.

"Dear Linda,
Wow! and a big thank you so much for the fantastic new look to our home.

Your expert eye was just what was needed to transform our blah and very boring living and dining room into the quietly elegant space we were looking for and now have.

Your ability to use our existing furniture and accessories – the editing of the many extaneous items – a tweaking here and a something there taken from another room and even forgotten “treasures” taken from cupboards and closets was like magic.

Your guidance in choosing colour for the walls, some updating feature and furniture placement has made our home a warm and welcoming place.

Your trip downstairs to our family room resulted in the same magic. Advice on window treatment, placement of furniture and the de-cluttering of the
built in shelves has made it a great space to relax in.

In the fifteen years that we have known you and have used your talent as
an Interior Decorating Consultant, we have been extremely pleased and recommend your services highly. Again, a big Thank You!"
Gordon & Lynne Garland
