Testimonials

Hi Nella,
I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how extremely happy we were regarding or home and the beautiful staging you provided.
We were nervous and excited about someone other than ourselves staging our home.  It did not take long to see the talent you have when it came to complimenting each area of our home.  Our home sold quickly and I know your staging was a part of that.
I was also thrilled to find out we are able to buy some of the pieces.
Thank you again for such a positive experience.

Hi Nella,
I’m trying to figure out how to let you know how grateful I am about the absolutely amazing job you did staging my home. After I completely renovated the house top to bottom I was unsure if staging the house was necessary. When I showed the house to my agent Earl McNeill, he assured me that staging it would be the best way to show off what the house had to offer. Earl couldn’t have been more right. He was confident the house would evoke your creative mind. Your ideas are spectacular. Taking my renovations and adding your style and design made the house irresistible to potential buyers. The compliments from agents, buyers, neighbours, friends and family were plentiful to say the least. I received multiple offers by enthusiastic buyers who were eager to have their offers accepted. The house sold for over asking and on the very first day we were accepting offers. A pleasant surprise especially in today’s real estate market. Nella you rock!
I definitely look forward to working with you again on another home in the near future. I without a doubt will recommend you to anyone looking for staging or interior decorating of their home. I can’t thank you enough.
All the best.

Hi Nella: Our house officially sold yesterday.  It was actually conditionally sold the first day of showing to the first person who saw it!  I believe this fast fast sell was due to your amazing decorating!  You successfully and beautifully represented our home in the perfect stylish way that potential buyers could not resist booking showings and putting in offers.  You also, just by pure example, made me see how colours and small accents can really transform a living space.  You are impeccable at your calling, and I will recommend you to any and all!  You have a lovely personality and I felt very comfortable with you from the get-go.  I wish you only the best in your future, which I’m sure will be easily had as you truly know your passion in décor.
Thanks

Nella did a great job staging a property for me. It was important to get it on the market quickly and Nella went the extra mile to get it staged within 4 days of meeting. She did a great job! The property generated well over 100 showings and sold at a price that exceeded our expectations. Would use again.

Just a wee note to say thank you for the magical transformation of my apartment. I was sceptical at first but my suite sold in one day for $37,000 over list price. It was like  living in the pages of a Home Decor Magazine for a few days. Thanks again.

Love, love, love how Nella and her design team decorated my home last week preparing it for sale! It was so beautiful I fell so in love with it that now I don’t want to leave it! And of course it “sold” quickly for over-asking!
The artwork and the decorative items she brought and placed so strategically all blended in perfect harmony with the existing furniture and with the colour scheme she chose for the entire house…beautiful…everyone loved it! I received great feedback. I can’t get over how stylish my humble little home looks! Thank you Nella and team…thank you so much for helping me sell my home. And I will miss our chats. It was wonderful getting to know you! Great job!

We loved the high impact of the home staging provided by Nella Casa Bella Staging & Styling!! We asked for a modern elegant look, and Nella delivered! Her staging furniture and accessories were set-up meticulously and were on point with the latest trends in design magazines. Nella accommodated with a quick turn around, and within 2 days of our MLS listing, our house had sold firm! We have and will continue to recommend Nella’s services.

“Thank you Nella. You turned our condo from a long dark hallway to a place that is worthy of being on the cover of House and home ! I can’t stop talking about your amazing work. Thanks to your amazing vision our condo sold in half a day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

“Nella and her team were incredible to work with. Their results exquisite !!!. Hiring both the painter and cleaner she recommended gave us precious time to work on other projects. Nella’s team then created a stunning transformation, a fabulous metamorphosis of our home. With just one consultation, somehow she envisioned the colors, the artwork, the accessories needed to polish and highlight our home. With her styling, our beautiful ninety year old home blossomed. I loved that she intermingled our items with her accessories. Thank you Nella. I believe your team was responsible for bringing us $25K over asking!
Nella’s webpage states, “Selling a home can be a very emotional and stressful time…” Yes, we can substantiate that. However, what Nella brings goes far beyond staging a home. Nella displayed compassion and understanding of what we were going through. She often asked what she could do to help us, and was generous with her hugs as needed. Helping us manage the stress, not only with talent and professionalism, she exhibited genuine warmth and caring for us and our home. I enthusiastically recommend Nella’s team for your home!”

“Wow! Nella was called in to save the day at the eleventh hour! On such short notice and with little time to spare,
we were a little concerned about getting the house in market-ready condition. Apparently that wasn’t a problem for Nella. She came in the night before the listing date, took pictures, made fashion-savvy suggestions and came back the next day with her accessories and magic wand! All the while, with a calm and positive demeanour…The place looked great when all was said and done and in a flash! In a couple of hours, Nella whipped the place into shape.
Fantastic service! Would highly recommend to Nella Casa Bella to anyone.”

“Nella has a special ability to make any space look stunning.  Over the past few years, Nella has helped countless of my clients sell their condos and houses for well over the asking price.  Her visionary design skills and attention to detail have made her really exceptional at making spaces look beautiful.  No doubt I’ll continue to work closely with her for many more years to come!”

“I worked with Nella when it came time to sell my condo at 35 Hayden St. I had a bit of time and budget to renovate so we made a plan to replace flooring, blinds, kitchen cabinet doors and lighting fixtures. She picked all the finishes and provided excellent referrals where I needed them and she put all this thought and work into it even before we got to staging.
During staging her detail oriented nature was even more evident as she took the time and put in the effort to make sure everything was perfect for listing day. Everything looked so stylish yet functional when she was done, I felt bad for having to sell the place! We had multiple offers on the condo and it sold just two days after listing on MLS.”

“Thank you very much. I would have to say the staging work that was done was what made it happen. Friends that visited my place before and after were able to see the transformation. I will definitely tell others about your work when or if they decide to do staging.”

“I am blown away by Nella’s work!  She did a fantastic job and got my vision for the house spot-on without much direction.  I appreciate that I could trust her to do her work and she delivered beautifully and only within a few days.  No micro-managing and no hassle.  She really puts in the time, effort and care into making sure the house looked great as if it was her own.  I would recommend her to anyone for staging and making sure you get the best price for your house!”

“Nella did a fabulous job for us and truly turned our home into “The Beautiful Home” just as her names promises.  After many years in our house it was time to retire and downsize.  On short notice Nella gave us her advice and the house was quickly transformed. We sold within 2 days over asking price.  Thank-you Nella Casa Bella for everything you did to make this experience a great one!”

“Thank you Nella Casa Bella for helping us stage our 700 square foot condo in downtown Toronto. The condo had multiple offers within 4 days and sold $10,000 over list price. We followed all the recommendations you listed on your detailed consultation report from paint color to light fixtures which really helped increase the value of the condo. Also your inspiration boards really helped us visualize what the condo would look like staged. You went above and beyond in staging our condo and really appealed to the young, urban demographic. I have recommended your services to my parents who will be selling their home next month.”
  •  Mark and Lisa J.
 
“Thank you so much for all of the hard work and amazing ideas that helped transform our home and get us the most value out of it.  From your vision of what it could be to your attention to detail, having you involved in the staging of our home made all the difference. Without you we would have had to sell our home at market value, instead we got over 200 viewings over 5 days and sold for $32k above asking!
You have my deepest appreciation and sincerest thanks.”

“Thank you Nella Casa Bella for helping us create our beautiful backyard oasis. As teachers, our summers are a time to decompress. Now we have a comfortable and colorful space to do so right in our very own outdoor space. We enjoyed hosting several BBQ’s and gatherings over the course of the summer and received several compliments on the outdoor furniture and accessories. My neighbours even offered to switch backyards.
You really captured what we were looking for.”

“Thank you so much Nella for coming out on a Holiday weekend to provide us with a staging consultation and then staging our condo within the same week.  We were under so much pressure with wedding plans and the purchase of our new home that your expertise and efficiency were greatly appreciated.  We are grateful that the condo sold quickly which alleviated so much stress allowing us to concentrate on our Wedding Day.
Looking forward to having you come decorate our new home.”

“John and I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic job you did staging our home!
It sold quickly, for a great price, and we had so many wonderful compliments on the web site virtual tour. What a day that was getting ready. I’ll never forget that! So much energy and exhaustion for a common cause, lol. Thanks again!”
