What Our Clients Say About Us

  • At very short notice Kim agreed to help me in decorating my new condo in Yorkville. I had a vague idea of what sort of style I wanted and after a very short discussion with Kim she seemed to get exactly the style that worked for me. Its a two bedroom, two bathroom unit which I needed fully furnished and she advised on all aspects of the decor from the wall colouring, light fittings, bathroom fixtures, furniture, all the way to the carpets. Kim also managed to perfectly integrate some of my existing furniture with the new items I bought such that they work perfectly together. She did all the sourcing, buying, delivery planning and eventually the staging of the unit, checking in on me frequently with various decor options and design choices. Kim’s approach to everything she did was extremely professional, allowing me to commit only the amount of time I had available to the project. I am more than thrilled with the final result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend House Coach to anyone looking to decorate their home or condo.

  • After a recent move into a more spacious home, I was left rather disorganized and more than slightly uninspired. I knew my home had potential, but a lack of artistic inclination combined with limited time to shop, compare, color match etc…. left me in dire need. After a year of procrastination, yes,…….Enter — House Coach! From the get-go, Kim’s energy and knack for detail took charge. From several existing photos of the interior of my home, she seemed to prepare a mental inventory of existing furniture, artwork, sculptures, fabrics, etc… Not only did she have new and interesting ideas on how to transform my spaces, but in addition, put considerable time and effort into shopping for unique and artistic objects to accent and compliment all of my rooms. I certainly never expected to the level of service or satisfaction from getting emails with photo’s while she shopped for me…..Wow!! Nor did I ever expect to fall in love with a complete new bedroom suite, bedding and all!! All in all, Kim transformed average rooms into dynamic and flowing spaces. A new experience for me – “Staged to live”……..Thanks Kim

  • I had the pleasure of working with Kim to stage my investment condo for sale. Kim was very professional and personable, providing a complete outline of what her team would do and the cost to complete. She has a keen sense of style and knows exactly what it will take to create a “I want to buy emotion” with Buyers. Prior to staging, my condo had lots of buyers and no offers. After staging, condo was sold in 2 days. I highly recommend the House Coach Team. Thank you Kim!

  • I first met Kim when my real estate agent hired her to stage my home to sell. Her personality, professionalism and eye for beauty stayed with me, and we sold our home for over asking. When the time came to make our new home just right for us we called Kim. We had never worked with an interior designer before, and it turned out to be a great experience. Kim is personable, accommodating and reasonably priced. I recommend her to friends and family regularly.

  • Thank you for doing such an amazing job in staging our home for sale. From your initial assessment, to the execution of the staging itself, my wife Sherri and I were very pleased with your work. To anyone weighing the cost/benefit of hiring Kim to stage a home for market, the numbers pretty much speak for themselves: we invested less than 1% of our list price and sold for 9% over-asking!

I just saw the finished condo. All I can say is WOW!!! It looks fabulous. How you do that in such a short time is a miracle. Thanks again and I will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a fantastic stager.

  • Thank you for the awesome work you have done with renovating my master bedroom and ensuite. I enjoyed every minute planning this long journey with you from the moment we started from selecting paint colours, to shopping and finally putting your ideas into reality. Let me tell you, that your creativity and great choice in the overall theme is just out of this world. I believe you have a gift as this cannot be learned just by taking a course, it is within you and of course, it comes with doing so many projects and a great deal of experience.

    I am really glad I came to know you because as a Real Estate Broker, it is not easy to know someone that you can trust and leave a project in their hands and not knowing how it will turn out. Every project that I have done with you from small to big, staging or decorating, you followed through very strongly and of course with a great result in the end.

    I thank you again and wish you all the very best in your business.

  • The first job Kim staged for us was so amazing! She completely transformed the space and helped us to exceed our client’s expectations. Naturally, she has become our Stager of Choice and has staged many of our listings. Our team and our clients are always thrilled with the results.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you very much for your expertise and the eye for staging a home for sale.
    Your detailed report, co-ordination of all trades people involved, keeping my clients on track with some DIY jobs, and finally getting the house ready to show, were greatly appreciated not only by my clients but also me as their real estate agent. And it all paid off! I am happy to report that the house sold for 9% over asking and my clients were ecstatic! And so was I. I would recommend your services to all my clients and also promote you to all my real estate colleagues.

  • Thank you very much indeed for your brilliant work concerning staging my recent listing. Everyone, myself included, loved the way the unit was staged and definitely you added a lot of value to the property. The fact that there was construction work in front of the building and the resulting damage it’d already caused to saleability of all the units available for sale, gave me an illusion of the same scenario as to my listing. Your expertise, however, proved otherwise and was the main reason for the contrasting outcome. I also thank you for being very accommodating throughout the whole process. I look forward to doing more businesses with you in the future.

  • Kim from House Coach staged a 3200 sf house for my client using my client’s furniture and art work and adding just what was needed to fill in the empty spaces. She saved my client money by moving existing art work and furniture around and renting only what was necessary. The house looked terrific and I do believe the staging helped us to sell the house within one week of going on the market and for a price that my client was extremely happy with.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Kim to my clients or other agents.

My god, I just got home and can’t believe it’s the same place! This is really amazing, thanks so much for all this – definitely way beyond anything I could have guessed…

  • My deepest appreciation and gratitude for your amazing work, creativity and most of all your support in transforming the new place to warm, cozy elegance – a retreat from the busyness of life…..wow!

    Your attention to detail, listening, responsiveness, customer service and ensuring everything came together in a timely manner was very impressive. You don’t even hesitate to go beyond what needs to be done.

    Thank you again Kim, from the bottom of my heart. I would highly recommend you to anyone and will definitely be calling you again for any future decorating.

  • I wanted send you a note to thank you for the wonderful stagging job that you did at 57 Highfield Rd. Not only was my client very pleased with your work, I received lots of very positive comments from many of the open house visitors and agents that came to view the house. I expect that you will be getting requests from some of the agents in our office as a result.

    You will be pleased to know that the house has sold. We received several offers and sold for over asking. My client is extremely pleased that she received such a good price for her house so quickly. Not surprising…it looked so inviting.

    Again, I would like to thank you for putting this together so quickly and with such short notice. I look forward to working with you again in the future.

  • Selling your house is a daunting task. What stays; what goes; do I need to paint; will our current home decor appeal to prospective buyers.

    As soon as we met Kim we knew we had made the perfect choice.

    She is very professional & personable and goes out of her way to make sure everything comes together in order to make your home appeal to the widest audience possible and make the whole process as seamless and stress free as possible.

    We are so happy we chose Kim and would recommend her services in a heartbeat.

  • Kim’s trustworthy, caring and friendly nature allows you to feel at ease. Her eye for detail and ability to commit to making sure that the service provided is impeccable. Kim transformed my very small kitchen into a well organized space. I am very pleased with the outcome and quite honestly am amazed with how she found places to store my kitchen items, which I never thought would be possible. I was absolutely stunned with how she did all of the organizing while I was at work which gave me peace of mind by taking away my clutter.

  • I wanted to thank you for making the transformation possible for my condo, with your vision at the moment you walked in to the place. The difference between before and after was beyond my expectations and you were able to stay in my limited budget and delivered it on time with all the upgrades we had to make in the unit. Your hands on approach, attention to every detail, getting things resolved regardless of what time of day, were the driving forces for everyone involved in this project to get it done and to do it well. I remember when I walked in to the condo I thought “Am I on TV? Is this Extreme Makeover?” it literally was even though it wasn’t the TV show, thank you for all your patience, hard work and above all, your vision and ability to make it come alive. Thank you.
