Alana with Rooms in Bloom was a pleasure to work with! She gave me so much great advice that helped sell my son's home.She was so responsive to each and every message, and truly cared about my property.Without a doubt, staging is well worth the money. The home looked gorgeous after staging and it sold for well over asking. The real estate agent said that the buyers looked at the furnishings and not the minor flaws of the home. Thanks Rooms in Bloom!

Alana and Heather at Rooms in Bloom were super! I called them to see my clients and within 10 days they had their team of professionals in to have all the work completed. The end result was a beautiful home which sold within 2 weeks for 98% of the asking price. A job well done!! I will definitely use their services again.

We worked with Rooms in Bloom from the end of June until the end of August. In between, they orchestrated a massive make-over on our home, and it sold within a week on the market; in fact - we had an offer for our asking price - the evening of our first open house!
Heather & Alana were a huge part of this success: they made recommendations, co-ordinated and oversaw a small army of amazing contractors and trades people to make it all happen on schedule. All the details were taken care of: they bought flowers and doorknobs, fixtures and toilets, chose paint colours and linens, printed and distributed open house invitations to our neighbours ... and on and on. They helped transform our home from a place where we lived to a place where everyone wanted to live! Their expertise showed off the "bones" of the house and allowed potential buyers to imagine themselves living there.
We were inmpressed with Heather & Alana's can-do attitude, their flexibility, attention to detail, and openness to feedback. They were reliable and professional throughout the process, from their initial assessment to co-ordinating the open house and touring potential buyers through the home. This young company is well on it's way - they certainly met their company goals on our project! We have been recommending Rooms in Bloom without hesitation!

I have worked with Heather & Alana numerous times over the past three years. Rooms in Bloom has worked with my sellers to prepare their homes for market. They have helped my sellers not only sell faster, but for more money. Whether it be help with de-cluttering, furniture placement, adding accessories or renting an entire houseful of furniture, Rooms in Bloom's impact on my seller's homes has been outstanding. Always professional, cutting edge creative and accessible. I am happy to have them as part of my team!

Heather and the staff at Rooms in Bloom are top-notch! They did everything they said they would do and made the process and transaction seamless.
We had a property that didn't get any interest or offers for 6 months and after Heather worked her magic staging it, we had a cash offer in 1 week! Heather thank you for helping us get our condo SOLD!

A great big thank you to Heather and Alana! They made my home look fantastic and they did it all on a very tight time line. They arrived at my home at 7:00pm. Our house was going on the market in 2 days. They walked around, moved, created, critiqued and eliminated tons of "stuff"...then they went and got coffee's and returned with their truck load of items that would transform my home. They were there until after midnight. In a few short hours, my home went from a stiff personalized home with some "bad art" to a master show home. My home never looked so good! I recall Alana and I discussing various furniture options and I would look over and Heather's mind would be relocating pieces of furniture. You could see her changing things around in her mind. Almost everything she suggested ended up opening up a room or making the space look more functional. These two women have a talent that I think every home owner should know about. We sold our house in one week above asking price and I know if was because these two made my home look great! Thanks again!

As a Realtor, Heather and Alana are my secret weapon to make sure my clients homes sell fast and quick. I had been disappointed by three separate home staging companies before finding Rooms in Bloom and now I wouldn't consider hiring anyone else for my clients. I've had nothing but positive feedback from my sellers and the ones who follow through with Heather and Alana's staging suggestions are rewarded with fast, top dollar sales. Thanks for being true professionals in your field. Your service is top notch and I look forward to working together many more times in the future.
Jeff Thibodeau, Re/Max Twin City
Thanks to Rooms in Bloom my property sold for 99.4% of the asking price within 4 days of being listed!
With 2 small children getting a house ready for sale seemed like such an overwhelming task. I was also dreading weeks or months on the market. I decided to call Heather and Alana for a staging consultation. They were friendly, enthusiastic and full of great ideas and suggestions. The next day I got a detailed report outlining exactly what I should do to present my house at it's best and sell it quickly for top dollar. I followed their report like a checklist, de-cluttering and depersonalizing, having some painting done and doing a thorough spring cleaning.
Then it was time for the girls to come and work their magic. They staged the house with beautiful accessories and some rental furniture for the few empty rooms we had just never gotten around to furnishing for ourselves. The place looked so great we decided to list for more than our real estate agent suggested. And we got it! I couldn't have been more pleased with the results and so was our agent. Even my husband, who was a little skeptical at first, had to admit that our investment in hiring Rooms in Bloom to stage our house really paid off. I can't wait to have a new home design consultation with Heather and Alana to help with decorating and personalizing our new house!

Alana & Heather have a real eye for decor and design. They helped me stage an entire 2 bedroom executive style condo to help show off all it's great features. The client was so happy with their work and I will definitely recommend Rooms in Bloom to more of my clients. Thank you !
Christina Singh, Realtor with Century 21 Home Realty Inc.
As a real estate agent, I am hired to sell people's homes for the highest price and with the most favourable conditions to them. One key part in getting the best price is the presentation of the home. Rooms in Bloom is a key part of helping my clients make often small, but powerful changes to their homes in order to appeal to the most potential buyers. More interested buyers means we see offers faster and with more money. I have worked with other home stagers, but Rooms in Bloom is by far the best.
Mike Hewitson, Royal LePage Wolle Realty
Alana and Heather have been and continue to be a great asset to my business. I routinely sell homes faster and for more money with their help.
Rainer Neufeld, Remax Solid Gold (II)

Both Heather & Alana are knowledgeable, informative, trustworthy and creative in the staging process of selling a home. They have helped a number of my clients obtain above market value for their homes as a result of their services! Worth every penny!!!
