ABOUT ME

Some people take pride in their work and bring excellence; others bring their personality; only a few have that certain passion that allows them to go above and beyond expectations.

As a certified stager™ and redesigner, as well as the proud owner of 5 Star Staging and Redesign, I put all three into my work.

My passion for design began long ago, before I even knew the meaning of home staging. Living with a family of four, I always found myself occupied with renovating, painting, designing and decorating. And I never got tired of it – I absolutely LOVED it!

In 2009, me and my family needed to sell our house during the challenging real estate market in the United States. At this time, it was very difficult to sell a house, and even those that were sold went for a lower price. You can imagine our surprise when our house was sold within a week!

As I later came to realize, it is not enough to just keep your house clean and grass freshly mowed to make a successful sale. You have to properly redesign and set up your house. This was the first time that I noticed my natural talent.

Later on, we moved to Toronto and were looking for a house to buy. We saw many, but there was one in particular that caught my eye. This house was vacant and seemed unsightly to my family and friends, but I saw a potential. We ended up buying this house, and with some renovation and redesign, everyone came to realize that it was the right investment.

This was another sign that I was on the right path and that home staging was indeed my gift. The ability to visualize and foresee the beauty and advantages of a house is only given to 10% of prospective buyers, and I am one of those few.

Our friends and neighbors are amazed at how I am able to constantly come up with fresh and innovative designs. They never hesitate to ask me for advice, or how to declutter or rearrange their furniture.

My passion led me to obtain a formal education in home staging to expand my knowledge so that I would be able to help my clients succeed the same way I did.

  • I met Tatiana before selling my place. I wasn’t sure if I needed to do anything in my condo because it was fully renovated with beautiful pieces of furniture. I decided to trust my intuition about staging it and it was absolutely right decision to work with Tatiana.

    First of all, Tatiana as a stager could see some particular things that I couldn’t see because I am not a professional. Also, when I chose and did my design, I did it for me, it was the character of the place that represented a family who lived there. Now, after selling my place, I realized how important it is to show the beauty of a house. Every place has a unique nature and it needs to be introduced to others. Tatiana did it successfully because of her professional and personal vision of the place. With small touches of finishing my place she showed all the charm that was inside my house. It was sold within first 24 hours after advertising. I had great experience to work with Tatiana, and I can tell that it is necessary to work with the right stager.

    Tatiana, thank you very much for helping me.
