Before and Afters
What an amazing job you did, staging our home prior to listing. It sold in ONE DAY!
Despite receiving an offer within the first hour of our Open House, we had many people come through, all commenting on the ‘”WOW” factor that you were so instrumental in creating.
Your exceptional understanding and extremely keen eye for knowing how a room is going to photograph, are part of what makes your service so outstanding. But the other huge part of your talent is your ability to work with your clients in a clear and firm, and very caring way to help them understand what is required to achieve the goal they are after. We would have no hesitation to recommend you to anyone trying to sell their home! Thank you Staged N Sold!

AWESOME JOB! WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Thank you so much for your incredible ideas on how to stage our house for sale!!! We listened to all of your suggestions to the last detail, from re-arranging the furniture in order to make our home feel more spacious, to strategically placing a pot of greenery here or a colourful pillow there. The result is simply breathtaking! With your eye for the esthetic, you’ve managed to transform our house into something straight out of a home decor magazine, and at relatively minimal cost I might add. Every home seller needs a talented stager like you, and I would definitely recommend you and your company to my friends when it comes time for them to sell their place.
“My wife and I were extremely impressed with Jeanette’s ideas, professionalism and efforts. We followed her recommendations to the letter and our house turned out fantastic. Our agent was equally impressed and the results speak for themselves; the house has just gone on the market and we are already getting swamped with viewing requests. – Richard and Tara, Stittsville, ON.”
I wish to thank you for the incredible difference your light touch has made to our home.
You have managed to breath new life into each room with the addition of a vase, a plant or simply by hanging art differently.
Your pre staging instructions were clear and as we progressed through our decluttering task list, we could instantly see results.
I would not hesitate to recommend your company, and especially you personally to anyone wishing to stage their home to sell or even to stay!
Staged N Sold, this email is written in support of your nomination for Best Customer Service Award. As mentioned to you, we have been extremely pleased with your services on our behalf. Not only did you spend more time with us than you were contracted for, you have been very quick to respond to all my email questions. You have a great talent from which we have benefitted – thank you.

“We sold our home in Blossom Park / Emerald Woods in just three days thanks to Staged N Sold. Jeanette suggested the paint colour for the upstairs and professionally staged our home.
I would absolutely recommend Staged N Sold to anyone thinking of selling and would not hesitate to use their services again.”
Hi Staged N Sold team
Awhile back you staged 279 Spencer St. for my clients Sandra and Steve Knox. You did a great job and in June, they sold their home.
They really liked you and were wondering if you would be interested in coming to their new home for an hour to give them some advice on the placement for hanging their art (and any other tips you might have on setting up.) They don’t have a lot of artwork but what they have is special to them. They also have a lot of family photos that they would like to put up on the wall.
If it’s a “yes”, I would like to pay for this service as part of their “getting settled” portion of my service.
Let me know,
Thanks for all your help, the house looks FANTASTIC!! We had 25 people through the open house and a second showing tonight (to quote the potential buyers “I feel in love with this house, I couldn’t even sleep last night”)!!!
The BreeseWay Group
I would like to thank you for your enthusiasm and professionalism as my Stager. I was very impressed by your expert project management skills and how you dealt with all your team members which consisted of cleaners to trades people, you were there to make sure things went smoothly and that the project was completed on time by everyone. I was most impressed by your great communication skills and how you followed up with my clients and me to inform us how the project was coming together. This house needed a team leader to get the job done and also give it the WOW factor that was needed desperately to get the property sold. As a realtor I received numerous compliments on how the house looked, Heather made sure the house made a great first impression by having it look fresh and appealing to every purchaser who entered the house. Many thanks for getting my clients property sold quickly, I will highly recommend your services to other clients or realtors who need a Professional Property Stager!
Pemberton Holmes Realty
Our house is sold, in less than two weeks! Thanks for your great help! The appearance of the staged house is highly regarded!
In fact we learned so much through the process – that our house can look so much nicer. This will definitely help us when we start to arrange our new house in Hamilton. I am sure that your work is (and will be) highly appreciated by your clients.
It has been a great pleasure to work with you. We truely appreciate your expertise and professionalism. We have learnt a great deal during the exercise.
Quite a few of friends came to see our house in the past two days, and they are all surprised about the “transformation”. I am sure that with your help, our house will sell quickly.
We will keep you posted.

Betty, Remax Affiliates
As promised, I’m sending along an update. We received offers last evening and have accepted, with condition. If all goes according to plan, the sale should be final by the 30th of April.
We also wanted to pass along our thanks for your guidance – the place looks great and we received many accolades.
Thank you for your help on 7 Meadow Glade 2 weeks ago. The house is sold and the sellers are very happy, you did a great job. ~John Phan Broker, REMAX Walkley
I have worked with Heather Fritz of Staged n Sold before, so I knew I could trust Heather to come in and help my clients make their home show-ready before we listed it. Heather was able to make use of a variety of the client’s own belongings, some items that I was lending, and her own beautiful pieces. She saved my client money throughout the process and we ended up selling the house for almost $20,000 more than we were anticipating and in only 3 days, thanks to the way it showed! I will continue to use and recommend Heather’s services to all of my Sellers and my colleagues. She understands what buyers are looking for, because she was a REALTOR herself.
She is the utmost professional and very talented at what she does. Thanks again Heather!
Naomi Larkins, Realtor, Royal Lepage Coast Capital Realty
Thank you so much for your quality service. With your staging, we sold our house in three days.
Hi there Connie,
I just wanted to e-mail you to thank you so very much for all your great ideas and help during the process of selling our home. With your help we were successful in selling our home in just three days. We were very impressed with your wonderful effort and professionalism…. you really were able to pull it all together for us.
I will definitely recommend you to friends and quite possibly will be calling on you when we move into our new home in the spring.
Your companys names says it all!
Deanna and Bob Ebner
I used Stagensold for a home that needed more than an intervention. I knew that if I listed the home the way it was, the sellers would be lucky to get between $235,00- $240,00. I called Connie and her team to take the pressure off of me and instruct my clients as to the best possible way to showcase their home. I went back to take pictures and my mouth dropped to the floor. It was like night and day. In fact I listed the home for $15,000 more and got them 98 percent of asking price. Needless to say my sellers were extremely happy and so was I. I continue to use Stagnsold and the benefits that Connie and her team provide.

Dear Staged N Sold Team,
As a realtor I received a problem listing from a corporate client. The property had been overexposed to the market by the client’s employee. Then he moved out leaving the property dark, vacant and unappealing. I knew this one was going to need help. So I called Heather Fritz of Staged N Sold. Heather made a well considered assessment of the situation and delivered the ideal lighting, furnishings and accessories on time and on budget.
Thus she turned a dark and dismal “unit” into a desirable residence through her professional expertise. This was a difficult challenge that Heather accepted gallantly and over achieved as the early sale in a difficult market proved. The corporate seller was very pleased with the result as to both time and money.
As a realtor I recommend Heather to any realtor or seller seeking a greater return in a shorter time frame regardless of market conditions.

This past April, our home sold in two days with an offer 11,000.00 over the asking price. Susie, from Staged N Sold, was one of the reasons our house sold so quickly. She was fun to work with and all her tips and points were bang on. Her suggestions for re-arranging the furniture made our rooms look so much bigger. Susie worked with the furniture and accessories that we had and didn’t ask us to buy a lot of things that we would never use again. She spruced up our master bedroom and wow, was it nice. Susie gave some very practical advice for fixing the cracks in our basement walls and referred us to a home inspector to get more detailed guidance. Fixing the cracks helped sell our home quickly. Potential buyers saw that we were honest and up front about the cracks, and therefore didn’t need to worry that we might be hiding other problems. We plan to stay in our new home for years to come, but if we were to move again, we would call Susie first.

Hi Staged N Sold team:
Great news, today, Saturday July 19 we signed an offer and the unit is sold. Occupancy will occur August 26 2008. Does staging work? Absolutely!
Your pictures were gorgeous and I think that the whole layout did the trick and sold the unit. So that went real fast. Our Real Estate Agent Anil and us were indeed very pleased. You can get a good recommendation from us anytime.
Have a nice week-end.

Once again thank you for all your help, patience and honesty. It is truly appreciated. Wishing you very success possible in the future! Miss you!

Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful ideas. Most of all Thank you for being the “nice” and “warm” people you are!!
Mark and Suzette
Staged’N Sold was recommended to us when we faced the task of selling a condo in Victoria while living in Ontario; in addition some “fix-up” was required. You weres most helpful in providing contacts for home improvements and coordinating the work to be done. Through her work the condo was presented sucessfully in a bright and welcoming light!
Peggy James and Maureen Dunn
I just wanted to let you know that we got a good offer on the house last night (98% of asking price), after 24 hours on the market. It’s only conditional on a home inspection, so we’re hoping for the best.
Genevieve & Clifford Crabe
Thanks for all your input. We worked hard and followed your suggestions, and it paid off. The For Sale sign went up Friday morning, and we had a steady round of people until early evening. Saturday was equally busy. By Saturday afternoon, we had three offers, two above our asking price. We accepted one offer; they returned today for an inspection, and now we have a Sold sign on the lawn!! Amazing!
Please tell Connie how much we appreciated her ideas, and enjoyed her visits.
Just a quick note to thank you again for your time and effort in helping us prepare for selling our home. Your detailed assessment left us with a clear ‘To Do” list and allowed us to focus on the things that needed to get done. With a busy household and 3 children under the age of 12, preparing the house to sell initially felt like an insurmountable task, but with your help and guidance, we were able to accomplish just that – and with great results. The FOR SALE sign went up on Friday and we had an offer in-hand on MONDAY morning – a whole 4 days later!
I would certainly recommend Connie and her Staged N Sold team to anyone who is considering selling their home.
Thank you again,
Brad and Trisha Simpson

I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work preparing Kenji’s apartment. Because my business is built strictly on referrals I have the good fortune of practically always working with people who are pleasant and fair minded. With this in mind I look forward to staying in contact with you on a regular basis.
Staged N Sold,
Thank you again for your prompt and friendly service!
You were great; I hope we get to work again sometime in the future! I would have never thought of that improved layout so I really appreciate everything and that my realtor Tony works with such a GREEN team!
Wonders never cease! We sold Steel Street today thanks to your staging.
I thank you so much for the good work that you and your team did to make this possible. I understand the challenges and there were ever more that were not readily visible.
All the best and many thanks.

Naomi Melhuish, BA, Sales Representative
Twice before we had put our home on the market, each time we had received an accepted offer. But each had ended in disappointment when the buyer could not sell their home. But with the completion of our new house now 4 months away we decided to try a different approach. To have our home staged. What would that entail? Our realtor gave us a number of business cards for stagers. We called them all but the kind concern and helpful questioning led us to choose Staged N Sold. Upon the initial call an appointment was made, and our home was evaluated. The concept behind staging was the reverse of our expectations. But the process prepared us for the move. Thanks to their assistance we have now sold our home before our new house is completed. What a relief!
Don and Sheila Eaton
We would like to thank you and your Assistant for your help in the recent staging of our home. Your enthusiasm and expertise in showing our home to its full advantage was much appreciated. This was a whole new concept for us and we now understand the importance of removing all personal mementoes, treasures and extra furniture from a home before putting it on the market. Our streamlined house made it much easier for future buyers to envision it as their future home. In a tough real estate market staging certainly gives homeowners an edge over the competition. We received many comments on how tastefully our home had been staged and we are happy to say it sold in less than three weeks. Many thanks for helping us make the move to our new home a reality.

Hi Frank and Dennis(of Coldwell Banker Real Estate,,
Yesterday, a lady named Heidi came to our House and gave us her opinion on how we should stage our house. I must say right upfront that she did an excellent job and I highly recommend her for any business you may recommend that has to do with staging houses for sale. Heidi could do this with her eyes closed, she knew exactly what to do and what to move, change, remove, etc… She spent 2 hours with us and recommended a massive amount of changes, an advise which we take very seriously. This email is about giving Heidi and the company she works for Connie the best feedback (10 stars). Definitely worth the money you guys are paying her for this service. I can see it is essential for anyone wanting to sell their house. Please forward these comments (feedback about her) to the appropriate people if you like. Thank you.
I want to thank you for all the time and effort you put into staging the condo I had listed at 940 Boulderwood Rise. Multiple efforts had been made by other realtors to sell this condo and I was fortunate enough to pick up the expired listing. The first thing I did was have you in to assess and provide recommendations. Working with the few items of furniture that were already in the condo and by bringing in some of your own rental items, you transformed an ordinary, unexciting unit into a home with definite “wow” factor. The condo sold within two weeks of staging, in a very tough real estate market.
Thanks again for all your help and I would definitely recommend you to others.

I want to formally thank you for all the effort you made to ensure my mother’s home on Winton Street showed so well when listed for sale. Not only were your furniture and décor items tasteful and well-suited to the property, you provided much-needed advice and guidance that put the finishing touches on the home’s presentation.
As you know, I was so impressed I have asked you to provide interior design advice on our own home.
I sign this on the weekend that the new owners of Winton take possession. Your services definitely enabled us to sell the property during an economic downturn and with a very sluggish real estate market.

I want to express my appreciation and that of my seller for the terrific work Heather Fritz of Staged ‘N Sold did in staging his condo in Victoria. Although this condo listing had many updates and flexible space, there were some idiosyncrasies that made it difficult for potential buyers to envision ho w it could look. Heather’s expert staging showed it to its best advantage and everyone commented on how good it looked. The realtor whose client bought it said that the staging was a main element in what sold his client on the condo. I would highly recommend Heather’s services to anyone wanting to present their home in its best light. The place looked beautiful and she and her staff did everything possible to make the process easy. I will certainly use her services again and again.
Royal Lepage Coast Capital Realty
I would just like to thank you so much, Heather, for the wonderful job you did. All the work was done so quickly, and the tradespeople you recommended have been excellent. The outcome has been just what I had hoped. It has been a real pleasure working with you; I know I could never have accomplished so much so easily without you…..not to mention I feel that I have made a new friend, and I am looking forward to meeting with you again, when I next come to Victoria.
I would certainly recommend your services at StagedNSold to anyone interested in improving a property for the sale market.
I am delighted to write this letter in reference to Ms. Fritz. Heather is an amazing person, definitely being one of the most focused and professional people that one will ever meet! When Heather puts her mind to a task, whether personal or professional, you can guarantee that the job will be done will as little fuss and muss as possible and done with a smile and friendly attitude.
Though Home Staging is a new profession to Heather, Heather’s knowledge is great. Living and working in Victoria for most of her life, Heather has a wealth of knowledge about home renovations, personal home staging, working with contractors, working with Realtors and working with the general public.
Heather was warmly welcomed by the Realtors in our offices in Ladysmith recently and has been asked to conduct a seminar on Home Staging at our Customer Appreciation Day coming up in the near future. We are confident that Heather will do a most excellent job with that request.
I am positive that you will be well rewarded with the professional qualities that Heather will supply you with and wish you much success in your association with her.

I am so glad to hear that you had a such a great trip! And yes, a hug from Mom is like nothing else….. It was great that you could be there…
I just got the key and I am sorry that I missed you when you were here! We will certainly recommend you to any clients who are interested in staging and use you ourselves if we have another property that you can dazzle! I was up at Applewood and think that it looks great! What a difference! Now, we are doing all that we can to get it sold! Bill took another REALTOR® tour through today to show them the changes… fingers crossed!
It has been a absolute pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you again and staying in touch!
Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty
It was an incredible job you accomplished and I thank you for it. The home sold quickly and for a good price. The house from the outside including the deck, to the basement and living room and kitchen and bedrooms & bathrooms, all just shone when you finished. It was a pleasure to show, and the owners were impressed as well. All showings were well received and the comments were all positive.
I also believe it was easier on the owners to maintain a clean and organized home for the showings.
A huge “thank you” to your great team and for doing what you said you could. Much appreciated. I highly recommend you.
When we decided to put our house on the market for sale, we asked Connie Nedergaard from “Staged N Sold to come out and advise us on how best to prepare our house for market. Connie and her associate provided us with a very thorough assessment of our current house condition – our house had weathered 20 years and three very active teenagers so we certainly had a bit of updating and staging to do. Staged N Sold provided a very professional service with a lot of valuable advice in preparing the house for sale. IT CERTAINLY PAID OFF in that our house sold at our asking price WITHIN 6 DAYS OF LISTING. I would certainly recommend Connie and Staged N Sold to anyone who is considering selling their home.
The McNiece Family
I didn’t get a chance to pop over to the condo until about 4pm yesterday.
The place looks absolutely awesome! Not overdone and not underdone. Heck, I’m ready to move into it myself! We had the light fixtures changed out and it looks so much better.
I’ll definitely be working with you again and would strongly recommend that about 90% of our sellers could use some sort of “staging” assistance. I know that I can sell this to people by letting them know that they’ll be able to get a better price for their home as well as sell more quickly.

Hi Connie and Virginie
We had a wonderful little house (with no basement) that dated back to 1953 original construction. It had been renovated but it was a real challenge to show with only 2 small bedrooms and little in the way of storage space. Somehow, StagedNSold made it look like an expansive home with a delightful outdoor atmosphere. The property sold in a manner of 3 days above market value! Thank you.
Connie and Virginie,
Thank you for the great work you did in staging our home. We trusted you would do a good job, but the final results surpassed our expectations. You provided very good customer service in your flexible scheduling; patience in explaining your service/vision and answering questions; and the way you – without interrupting us – staged the house and came back to clear the home at the end of our contract.
You both were extremely professional, thorough, enthusiastic and creative. You managed to take a vacant home and tastefully stage it to display its full potential. We feel you played a great part in selling our home; we got our first offer within 6 days of listing the property.
Best wishes for continued success.
Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful ideas. Most of all, thank you for being the “nice” and “warm” people you are!
Suzette and family
We are so pleased with the results. What a difference !! You and Darlynn both have excellent taste and a true talent for this business. You will exceed beyond your own expectations….. Bruno and the boys really like it too (which is an added bonus) I have enjoyed meeting you both and I’m sure we will see each other soon.
Thank you kindly again for everything (your patience, advice, honesty and hard work )
With our deepest gratitude,
Joyce and family
I highly recommend StagedNSold to anyone who is putting their house on the market. Nicole DeFilippo is a great professional to work with and understood perfectly what needed to be done. Long time friends come to my house after Nicole worked her magic and were amazed at the transformation of the space. Working with StagedNSold is a small investment and worth every penny. We sold our house in three weeks and were able to realize 97% of our asking price in a buyer’s market. Thanks, Nicole !!
Dear Connie –
Thank you so much for all your help and advice. It was such a pleasure to meet you and although we currently have not made the decision to list the Nottingham property, we appreciated your kindness and professionalism.
As an update, your discovery of the problems with the bathroom floor was accurate. We removed the vinyl flooring only to find 4 additionals layers of various products! All have been removed and ceramic installed appropriately.
Again, thank you for everything. As the opportunity presents itself, I have been referring you to others for both staging will happily continue to do so.
Have a blessed, prosperous and happy holiday season.
Sincerely, Kathy & Gary Thatcher, Upper Arlingtion, Ohio
~Staged-and-sold took my house and made it a home. Connie and Virginie provided an excellent and detailed consultative experience, preceded by an amazing transformation of space and materials that made my single home shine as model environment. I am 100% confident their efforts resulted in the expedited sale of my home in under a week.
Thanks again ladies.

multi-family market and built a waiting list”
Property Management Testimonial
As the Director of Marketing for AIMCO, I have had the pleasure to work with Connie Nedergaard over the past couple of years, inviting her expertise for the staging of model apartments, clubhouses, and amenity packages. Through Connie’s direction, new virtual tours and on-line photographs have been created and placed on six various websites, for over twenty properties in Indiana & Kentucky.
After the new photography was added in to the various web ads, the number of inquiries more than doubled! It is my strong belief that with her team we have been able to exceed sales goals, obtain occupancies of over 95% in a very soft multi-family market and build a waiting list.
In fact, Connie and her team will be assisting me this summerin the staging process for at least twelve more apartment communities that I am working with, and I know the results will be outstanding!
Connie was always professional, dependable and willing to go above and beyond, working many late evenings, just to ensure our goals and deadlines were achieved. When the photography plans were approved for this year, I had the opportunity to pick a staging professional, and I would not have chosen anyone, but Staged N Sold!
Vickie Johnson, Director of Marketing
~I have worked with Connie over the past couple of years and have used her services as an Accredited Staging Professional with her company Staged N Sold, during that time. I have seen Connie work with my clients and myself and provide great service to both. She has also produced great results in helping us sell my clients homes. She has functioned in multiple roles with my clients and handled many personal situations with great professionalism.
I have also worked with other members of Connie’s company and have had wonderful experiences with her employees and have been more than pleased on how Connie has trained, coached and followed up with her employees. It is rare to find a business owner/manager that actually cares about their service and the service of their employees. I have had follow up calls from Connie after I have had an employee that I have not previously worked with come in for a staging. Connie’s attention to detail and follow-up is something that I really appreciate.
HER Dublin, OH
– Staged homes sell for more money and sell quicker. I have shown a home and that was not staged (buyer input was “it’s OK”) and then go about 4 doors down in the same neighborhood and show the same floor plan, but in a staged home and the buyer loved it and in fact bought the home! I have a professional staging expert come to your home and go through every room and generate a full home report on what needs to be done to best stage your home.
