    Beautiful, gorgeous, tremendous, fabulous, marvelous ... are only some of the kind words we've heard from the potential buyers and Realtors who viewed our listing in Richmond. We ended up having multiple offers on our listing and sold at 3.5% or roughly $17,000 more than the previous sold unit with the same floor plan in the complex. It's the first in my 8 years of working in Real Estate where the people coming showings are so drawn to the staging where they are able to overlook / disregard the exist flaws that the property has. It was as if Joanne had cast a magic where people instantly fall in love with the house the very moment they set foot in it. Joanne and Wayne are the ones to go to if you're thinking about staging your or your clients' property for sale.
    NOTE: Be prepared though, especially for the listing Realtors, the seller might not want to sell after seeing how the magic Joanne and Wayne cast on the property.

    “We could not have asked for a better experience. We decided quite suddenly to put an offer on a new house the week before we were leaving for vacation for 17 days. And that seemed like a perfect time to list our house – showings with no disruption for us, no dog around, no guinea pig around … perfect. Although the state of our house did not agree. We met with our realtor on the weekend we made the offer and he recommended Joanne to us. She met with me on Tuesday, we left for vacation Friday, she and Wayne worked their magic on the Sunday and Monday, pictures were taken on Tuesday, the listing went active on Wednesday and we had three offers on Thursday. Without a doubt, this would not have happened without Joanne. She transformed my house completely and took care of everything. I am so thankful for her expertise and hard work. I would recommend her to anyone and will be using her myself for design at our new house.”

    “I would whole-heartedly recommend Joanne and Wayne to anyone going through the process of listing and selling their home. It is an incredibly stressful time for any homeowner, but J&W makes it so much easier! They came in and reviewed what we already had, then clearly communicated what they would do to upgrade the look and feel of our space, all the while being sensitive to our budgetary constraints. In the end, we sold our townhouse in only 2 weeks, and received more than we were asking for! If you want peace of mind AND top dollar when you sell your home, J&W will provide the inspiration needed to achieve the success you’re looking for.”

    “Joanne and Wayne recently redesigned our living and dining room and BOY did they impress us! They were given a shoestring budget but somehow managed to make our space elegant and picture-perfect. They were able to use our existing items and transform the space dramatically. They really listened to us and ensure all our needs were met. The fun part about the redesign was coming home to see the transformation! We really enjoyed working with Joanne and Wayne and will definitely call them again for our next project.”

    “My client wanted to sell an empty two-bedroom apartment. In order for Buyers to visualize the size of the apartment, we decide to look for a company to stage the property. J&W Inspired Home was referred to me by a fellow Realtor. My Seller and I decided to request a quotation from J&W. We had previously shied away from staging as we thought it would be much too expensive. The quote from J&W was reasonable and we decided to give J&W an opportunity to prove that staging helps and works. Joanne could instantly visualize the furniture and furnishing needed. It was done professionally and quickly so that I could have Open House within the next week and planned for 4 weeks. We had offers after the first weekend of Open House and sold within the second week of showing. The staging was done so well that the prospective buyer wanted similar furniture and decoration. The furniture with the complementing art & accessories made the apartment looked much larger – it looked more of a house than an apartment, as one of the Open House visitors commented. My Seller is indeed happy.”

    “Both my condo and my deck, which is very large, were staged with most efforts aimed at the deck. The place looked great! Uncluttered and inviting and comfortable. The deck looks really good and I received a lot of good comments on it. My place sold in just over two weeks for close to asking price and after only two open houses and I am sure the staging had a big part in the sale. I would recommend J&W to my friends.”

    “Joanne and Wayne recently prepared our Vancouver condo for marketing. Wayne tidied up the walls and caulking; Joanne turned it into a welcoming modern home. We received four offers within five days of the condo being listed and had a signed unconditional contract by the end of the fifth day. The price achieved exceeded our expectations – we are converts to the benefits of staging.

    Our realtor commented that visitors to the open house viewings often walked in, sat down, and started asking serious questions within minutes – the staging made them feel that they could live there.

    We found Joanne and Wayne very good to deal with – importantly, they were very willing to work to your budget.”

    “We wanted to refresh our home layout and add some pieces we needed. Joanne provided creativity, professionalism, and enthusiasm to suggest options. She communicated well in a timely manner and worked to our schedule and preferences cheerfully and without hesitation. We encountered a budget change, and Joanne made sure that was acceptable before moving ahead. Wayne worked on the project too, he was also great to work with; professional, and very personable at the same time. A nice benefit of J & W is design in a day. It’s fun to come back home to see the result of the work, pieces chosen, and how it transforms your home, immediately. Our bedroom is now a million times nicer, simply by Joanne and Wayne measuring to be sure, designing the space on paper/computer to see ahead of time, Re-placing the pieces, and adding a few extras we needed. Nice to have someone make the choices for you, and take care of the details to deliver and place/install. J& W service costs are of very good value. We were delighted to work with J & W and would happily call on them again.”

    “I had one listing that I just could not sell, it was on the market for almost 1 year, much longer than any other listing I have ever had. Once the sellers agreed to have it staged, I contacted Joanne as she had been highly recommended by another Realtor. When the sellers decided to re-list, they were impressed by Joanne’s proposal and agreed for her to stage it for them. She only had a couple of days to do it, and she did an incredible job. We got an accepted offer two weeks later!

    We were very impressed with how she completely transformed the space, her ability to deal with the furniture rental company, and to find a mover on such short notice. I definitely recommend her services to anyone interested in maximizing their sale and achieving it in the shortest time possible. The price is right, her service is exceptional and her dedication is evident.”

    “This was the first time that we had staged a property for selling. We had never met Joanne prior to this time and were very impressed with her skills and the staging process. The staging went smoothly from our first phone call to the removal of the furniture after the sale. Joanne was professional and approachable throughout the staging. We appreciated her efficiency with timing and scheduling, as well as her creative and talented decorating skills. Items were delivered and picked-up when she said they would be. The staging was completed at the agreed time. The appearance of the condo exceeded our expectations. Joanne highlighted the positive features, making the condo look more comfortable, livable, and stylish. The end result was the sale of our condo only one week after our first Open House. We are certain that the exceptional staging greatly contributed to the quick sale at a price we were very satisfied with. We have no hesitation recommending Joanne. For us, the value we received by staging the condo considerably exceeded the cost. It was a pleasure working with Joanne!”

She helped me see the potential that exists in our house and provided me with a thorough and detailed list of suggestions that we could take care of ourselves in order to prepare our space for the arrival of our second child.

    “They worked hard all day and all I can say is WOW! They moved furniture around, created some interesting and unusual conversation areas, removed some furniture that didn’t work in the room anymore and beautifully displayed an antique china cabinet that my partner cherishes. They hung my favourite art and really made it stand out, adding to the warmth and enjoyment of the room. It’s sometimes the small things that can make a difference and to see our glass bowls and dishes displayed really pulled the look together. We feel that our home not only looks great now, but also has a fabulous energy about it. And that makes coming home after a long day, a real joy!

    Thank you so very much!”

    “Deciding to stage my condo before selling was a great idea, especially hiring J&W Inspired Home. Joanne made a stressful process of getting my condo ready for sale so much easier. Joanne’s sense of interior design and Wayne’s handy-man touch transformed my place into a beautiful and very appealing one. The result proved the great job that they did! It was on the market for 5 days and I got 2 offers. I ended up getting the list price. Two offers in one week, sold in 10 days! Thank you Joanne for your wonderful job staging my home.”
