Myths about Home Staging
“Decluttering and cleaning up is Staging”
It is not. The truth is that decluttering and cleaning up are expected by buyers when you are selling, but are only the first steps to Staging.
“I have a nice house, it doesn’t need to be Staged”
While this may be true, all homes benefit from Staging. The process of Staging is not to decorate your home, but to market it, which is much different. In fact, during the process, the decorating you have done may need to be toned down to reflect a more “buyer friendly” look. The goal is to create an atmosphere that a buyer falls in love with.
It needs to present as their next home, not your current home.
“Properties like mine sell fast”
In the past that may have been the case, however in the last few years the economy and market have changed dramatically. Whether it is the economic changes in general or the increase in your competition staging their homes, you will need to consider it or be left behind.
Your listed competitors are fighting for their sale and so the question is…who will sell first?

The Staging Agent
“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
“Hiring The Staging AGENT Jill Turgeon to prep my home before the sale sign went up was the best decision I ever made. The smallest detailed changes to the more obvious larger changes, started to make sense. It was slowly becoming NOT my home. My home was slowly being transformed to a HOUSE that presented the potential to become someone else’s HOME. It went on the market 11:00 p.m. in the beginning of June and the new owners took possession end of July. My decision to overcome my uncertainty to stage my home turned out to be the best decision. The display of professionalism, hard work and determination to get things done as well as the incredible knowledge of Jill Turgeon PAID OFF. SOLD!
Randee R. Parkland County, AB June 2021
“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!”
Kelvin and Margot P. Dec 2021, Westlock, AB
Check out our Testimonies from Jill’s Staging Clients
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!”
Dylan W. Marketing Manager @ MHA Properties
“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.
Mavis M, Sherwood Park, AB
“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!
Stony Plain, AB
“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!”
SAVVY Custom Homes Ltd
“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.”

"Why Risk your Largest Asset to Virtual Staging?" What is Jill's Process when you List with her?
To help you Stage and Sell your property and to have your repeat business.
Jill’s Real Estate Re-Designed Listing & Staging service can help you do just that.
Her goal is to create a series of great first impressions during your online and “in person” showings. This is easily not accomplished with virtual staging, as the buyers are disappointed with the experience once they arrive & see it empty.
Virtual staging, while offering a cheap price tag, ends up costing you more money in the end, as your home loses opportunities to get offers and sits for sale.
Why is this?
Buyers have placed your home on their list based in part to the gorgeous online photos. If they arrive and see empty rooms, it is an underwhelming experience, that leaves them with a feeling of being deceived.
This is not a good starting point for an offer to be written.
The other reality is that all the flaws are exposed and suddenly the showing goes from “I can see my family living here, and feeling comfortable” to “Wow, there is a lot of little things that need to be done and why is that switch in the middle of the wall?” The flaws and quirks are exposed for all to see.
Online Dating Fail!
We have all either known someone or experienced ourselves, an online dating fail. The picture is not the truth in person. If the reality disappoints, is there a second date?
Jill had spent a lot of time in her staging business re-staging many properties that had the virtual staging “failed” experience. Home owners were not happy after months of trying to sell as a virtually staged vacant home, losing time and money along the way and in every case, regretted choosing that initial path. This is why she DOES NOT offer virtual staging services. Instead you get the REAL THING.
