“It was so beautiful,” Pam recalled. “I was excited to add that project to my portfolio. The views from those high-rise condos are amazing and I focused on that in the design.” Despite regularly working with an elite clientele, Pam emphasized that Revive Home Staging does not cater to any one market. “I don’t specialize; any kind of home on the market can benefit from what we offer. I’ll often work with people who are still living in family homes, occupied space, and they’ve gone through the whole to-do list I’ve given them but they still need those extra pieces to make the home stand out. Some feedback that I receive, mostly mothers, who will say, ‘I have kids, I don’t have décor!’ and that’s where I come in and add that extra layer of luxury. I think there are some similarities with some homeowners and then some are quite different. A lot of the properties that we visit, sometimes they’ll either need a lot of décor and accessories, and other times we just need to rearrange what they have.” “I’ve always been artistic and creative and spatially-aware but it was only after selling my first house on the day it was listed that I knew I had the talent to transform a home to attract buyers.” “Vacant stagings are more in-depth projects,” Pam con- tinued. “After they’ve agreed to the price and we have a contract signed I usually have a design plan long in mind. I typically look through my inventory in these cases and pick out everything for each room, make sure it’s all coordinated and that it’s going to create a high-impact look – because you want the results to show in amazing photos. I plan the design room-by- room to make sure all the angles are right, the spacing is right, and the colours flow. Then we pack the inventory and call-in the movers, which I used to do myself!” she laughed. “They deliver all the pieces, unpack everything, and do all the heavy lifting. Then it’s time to see my vision come to life, which is still amazing to me. At the end of the project, I love being able to say, ‘This is exactly how I pictured it!’ It is incredibly rewarding and makes the long hours well worth it.”

Pam explained that it’s also rewarding when home buyers want to buy her staging inventory design as is.
“Sometimes the people who buy the home want to buy my staging inventory, which tells me that I’ve hit the target market perfectly. I’ve had that happen more than a few times. So far, I haven’t sold any of my inventory because it can take months to build all the right pieces to cohesively style a room. It’s difficult to allow that much inventory, that ultimately builds other room styles, to be sold all at once.
