Stage and Sell with Jill Turgeon
Stage and Sell Real Estate
Staging and Selling real estate in a nutshell is taking care of you, the homeowner, and making sure that you are served well.
This is a unique approach, as I focus mainly on working with Owners who need help to prepare their home for listing.
I believe that if you are in a contract with me you deserve my full attention.
I have 20 years of experience in Home Staging and contractor connections to assist in the process of preparing your home for sale. I will also stage your home as part of my “Stage and Sell Real Estate” approach.
With thousands of staging projects in my portfolio over the last 20 years, I am very capable of assisting you with the listing and selling process.
Our Pre- Listing Appointment
I will tour your home and present my Staging & Marketing portfolio to you. We will go over my customized Pricing & Marketing plan for your property.
We will discuss it all and decide if our goals are aligned and we want to work together.
I offer a straight up, common sense approach to preparing your home, marketing and pricing it. We discuss all the pro’s and con’s of different options, so you can make an informed decision.
If we proceed together, we will be planning your property preparation plan and staging day is booked.
Once the house is ready for staging, put the coffee on because I am headed over! I will stage your house, right before we list and if required, I will bring in furniture and home décor. I own enough inventory to stage 80- 100 homes a year.
Ready to List
Now that we are Staged and ready, I have professional photos along with RMS measurements completed and then we go live on MLS.
The photos of your property are your first showings, they need to capture the heart of the buyer and get your property put on their Top 10 List.
Gone are the days when buyers looked at a house before seeing it online.
Buyers weed out properties online FIRST, then go see the real gems in person.
My goal is to make your property be a GEM on that Top 10 List.
Why Choose me to work with?
- I have extensive home staging experience and knowledge of real estate
- My first year selling homes, I was 25 years old and I sold 21 houses that year. Back then, it was 7 x the average of new Agents in our Real Estate Board.
- I went on to build the largest & most successful Home Staging company in Edmonton
- I am the only Edmonton area Home Stager to ever win RESA Home Staging Awards, 6 to be exact.
- I know that relationships are built on success not failures, and if I want to do business with you again, we need to have success, right? Who would ever call back anyone who didn’t sell their house?
If you have questions, I am always happy to chat, and as you can probably tell, I shoot straight and will always allow you the choice to work with me, as I am a no pressure person, so have no fear!

Testimonials from past Clients
“Jill was amazing to work with, she took care of just about everything. Was an easy process when I had her in my corner, and the staging she had done was very professional and looked great! I would recommend her for sure”
“We recently bought our first home and we are so happy that we got Jill Turgeon as our REALTOR®. She is very thorough with all aspects of our house purchase and explained all pros and cons of each properties we have viewed for us to make a good decision. She was very patient and knowledgeable to answer any of our questions and we felt so comfortable throughout the process as a first time home buyer. We will definitely recommend Jill for anyone who’s seeking to purchase real estate in Greater Edmonton Area.”
Amal & Aksa M. Spruce Grove AB, March 2022
“Jill’s expertise and eye for detail transformed our aging first-home-turned-rental into something eye-catching and move-in ready. She helped us discern what and how to invest our resources and energy to get maximum return on the sale. Her calm demeanor and tenacity helped us navigate a difficult buyer and made her an excellent advocate. The whole process from renters moving out to renos to closing date was complete in less than two months and we are SO grateful.”
Sheleena B. Spruce Grove, AB July 2021
“Jill went way above expectations and did what it took to make things happen for us. She really took charge and her knowledge with her experience is quite impressive. There was absolutely no doubt who she represented and made us feel so very important. We definitely recommend her!”

Simply Irresistible Interiors- Staged by Jill Turgeon
Your staging was a wild success all around! We were able to drastically increase the number of leads we’re receiving from our refreshed ad pictures, and people loved the show unit. They felt like they could see themselves living there as soon as they walked in.
We had a problem renting our elite units at Westland Park prior to staging – less than 10% of the units rented a few months prior were elites. The show-suite bumped that up to nearly 50%!
Thank you for everything!”

“My Husband and I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You for a job very well done. This is the 2nd time we have used your company, in 2013, we had your company stage a property we were selling. At the time the market was strong. The house sold after being on the market for 1 DAY and for $20,000 above the asking price. This fall in 2018, with the market being very soft. We called on your company again. When the houses in our location are currently taking 6-8 months to sell. We are happy to report, our house took less then 2 month to sell.
We truly believe that the advantage we had, was from the staging efforts provided. After the staging was finished, both my husband and I commented that it never looked that good when we lived there.
We would not hesitate to recommend Simply Irresistible Interiors to our friends and family. If we ever sell another property, I can assure you that our first call is to our real estate agent and our second call is to you.

“Hi Jill! Your company did such an amazing job staging our home to sell. It was on the market for 5 days and we got 2 offers. We ended up getting very close to list price. Your staging team was so professional and accommodating, with special thanks to you for all your hard work. We believe it’s worth it to stage your house and your company has a really nice product that made my home even more appealing. I am now a believer!”
Client – Carly R.- Edmonton
Carly also hired us in 2016 for another home, much larger and it also sold in the first month.
“Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did! The house was staged beautifully, accenting all it’s best features and the pictures that were taken gave buyers a wonderful introduction to our house. The service you provided, was very professional and we feel it was money well spent considering we had multiple offers within a week of listing and the house sold in 18 days! I would recommend Simply Irresistible Interiors to anyone who would like to sell their home! Thank you!

“We used Simply Irresistible Interiors to stage our newly built spec home. Jill did a fantastic job staging! We received so many compliments on the decorating. Jill has great taste and an eye for detail. We were extremely happy with the end result- she transformed our house into a dream home! We were also impressed with the quality of furnishings she used. One week after we listed our house, we received an offer to purchase and sold our house! It goes without saying, the next time we are looking to sell/stage or need color or decorating expertise, we will be calling Jill!”

“I initially called Simply Irresistible Interiors because I had a bit of a challenge: I was looking to sell my currently vacant condominium. The building had 8 other units also for sale and while my condo was well maintained, it needed just a little something extra to make it stand out from the rest of the units for sale. After talking with Jill and scheduling the staging, I felt very confident using her services and leaving all the design details up to her. She also made everything so easy by taking care of all the moving and set up of the furniture.
The staged condo was absolutely beautiful. Of potential buyers who viewed the condo, each remarked at how lovely everything looked. I received an offer within three weeks of it being on the market. I was extremely pleased, especially considering how many other units were for sale in the same building and that current market conditions show three months on the market is typical.
I would not hesitate to recommend Simply Irresistible Interiors and would definitely use their staging services again. I am thoroughly impressed with Jill’s talent, service and professionalism.”
