"We have now used Suze three times. The first was to stage a full-size house - she did an amazing job, the house sold very quickly and for well over asking price.
The second time was selling a townhouse about a year ago in a tougher real estate market. Suze came in again and set it up with a completely unique and modern look that uniquely suited the place and the desired buyer's tastes. She has a strong sense of fitting the right elements into the right space to produce a wonderful showing. Again, our property sold relatively easily.
Recently, we used Suze in a different way. After seeing how beautifully she had made our places look as we were leaving, we decided to use Suze to set up our new home so that we could make it as nice as possible from day one. We could not be happier with how quickly and easily Suze and her partner Meme made a huge difference in our new place. Suggestions about furniture arrangements and potential new items to add to rooms were spot on. Suze and Meme also hung all the art in our new home and did a phenomenal job - immeasurably better than if we had done it ourselves.
I can't recommend Suze and Meme highly enough. They are a pleasure to deal with, they have a wonderful sense of colour, space and design, and they have now made our house truly feel like a home."
Steve Pratt, Home Owner, March 2013
"Suze Interiors did an amazing staging job for my Sellers. While the bones of the house were great and the listing price was competitive, I believe it was the beautiful staging of Suze Interiors that “sold” the house quickly! Everyone who came through commented on the staging!! Suze Interiors is my “go to” staging company I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to recommend them! Thank you Suze Interiors for helping with the quick sale. The Sellers were very pleased and appreciated your help in the process of selling. Call you soon!!"
"Staging works! Suze McCart of Suze Interiors recently was hired by my seller at my recommendation to stage a home of his recently departed aunt. Suze handled the situation with compassion and sensitivity, giving my client a sense of confidence about the whole process. With her flair for presentation, Suze turned a dated, time-warped condo into a fresh and contemporary living space. The result: selling for more than 99% of the asking price in just 4 days. This was the highest priced sale of several similar but un-staged condos in the building that subsequently were sold. Suze was in constant communication with me throughout the process, and she was very easy to work with. She was on-time and on-budget. I most definitely will continue to recommend Suze McCart and her staging services."
Susan Hubele, Remax, May 2012
"After four months on the market with zero offers last year, we decided to re-listed our condo this spring with the help of Suze Interiors. We believe that her superb staging significantly helped sell our home within one week."
Taya & Gary Ng, April 2012
"I lived in my new apartment for a whole year without drapes, just the Venetian Blinds that were there. In the past I have either inherited drapes from former owners of the houses I have lived in or made my own, but the windows in this apartment are very big and it seemed rather daunting, so I did nothing for a whole year. Then my daughter introduced me to Suze McCart and over a cup of tea she made suggestions and discussed various possibilites with me. The fabric samples she brought for me to see were carefully chosen with the colours of my apartment in mind. Before I knew it, it was in the works and in a very short time, her very pleasant installer was here putting up the beautiful drapes. They are indeed very beautiful and in fact the word "stunning" has been used by several people, including me!"
Kathie Overton, April 2012
"Thank you very much for your warm and professional decorating & design you completed for our new condo. I was very pleased with the layout which was very important to the balance and presentation of our new home. Your picture hanging techniques and skills are very impressive and I would not hesitate in recommending your services."
The Fredericksen's, November 2011
"Many thanks for your outstanding contribution to the sale. I know the staging was the catalyst for the competing offers we received so quickly."
Rosanne Dohm, Remax, June 2011
"My realtor hired Suze to help me ready my house for sale. After already removing lots of furniture, knick knacks and most family puctures, I thought "is there anyting left for "Suze to do?" I was in for a life changing surprize!
After touring the house, she made suggestions for relocating and removing furniture, rugs and my treasures which with the help of movers made the house look so much cleaner, more spacious and functional. I purchased less than $200 worth of new items to complete the new look, all of which will transfer to my new condo. This experience will totally change how I decorate my living space in the future.
My friends and family were astonished at the positive change in the look of my home and within a week of the house being on in a very tough market, I have had 2 offers. Because of the changes, the inside of the house photographed well for the MLS listing and other advertising that my realtor was able to do on-line. If the house had been only staged by me, I do not think I would have had any offers other than lot value.
I now enjoy looking at other houses and condo's on-line and see how poorly unstaged places, photograph and wonder why all realtors don't use stagers to help sell their properties."
Joanne Waters, West Vancouver
"We spent six months trying to sell our empty condo. Within weeks of Suze staging our place, we had three offers. Two came from buyers who had seen the place both before and after it was furnished. The third, and best, came from someone who had only seen it staged, and offered to pay our full asking price. Suze made our place look better than we ever could. In fact, we happened to be selling property at the same time as a family member. A few hours after they saw her work, they also called a stager in Calgary."
Nathan Vanderklippe, February 2011
"I am a skeptic when it comes to home design as I always thought I had it down pat. We have two very strange rooms in our house that I made livable but they always bothered me. Suze was able to find ways to make our furniture work in both rooms to make them looks fantastic and very magazine like. The rooms are now balanced. Our TV room no longer looks like a converted bedroom. It actually has the feel of a library now even with only 20 books! Very impressed and plan on using Suze in my new home to ensure we don't live there for 6 years and not be totally happy with the rooms.
Oh yes, she is also very hands on and that was a huge help as I was carrying a toddler for most of the visit."
Jane & Randy Geszler, April 2010
"Suze Interiors to the rescue. I think when Suze first arrived in our home we had 23 paint stripes on the wall. We wanted our living room to be cozy, warm and sophisticated, but we could not find the right colors to communicate that.
Suze came over and once we communicated our goals she was able to provide a choice of colors that resonated for both of us. It was amazing that after the multiple unsuccessful trips to Benjamin Moore and more than $50 in paint samples, Suze was able to immediately guide us to colors we loved. The downstairs was painted two days later and looks amazing; we are thrilled with the colors we selected.
On another note where Suze was especially helpful was in my kitchen. I was really tied to red for the kitchen walls. My mixer, blender, food processor, etc. are all red and I thought I wanted a red wall to match. Very respectfully and professionally, Suze helped me see the red would actually conflict with the appliances and instead we selected a color that allows them to be stand out. The kitchen looks unexpected and amazing. I absolutely love it!
Thank you Suze for saving John and me from our cream walls and helping us find the painted world of cozy, warm and sophisticated. Now, it’s time to start decorating! "
Christa & John Wagner, June 2010
"Well we had multiple offers last night on the condo and we accepted an offer $21,000 over list. I wanted to tell you that we received rave reviews on the staging. Absolutely every single Realtor complimented us on how well the apartment showed. They had so many positive things to say, it was great to hear.
I had one open house where 26 people went through and all parties but one complimented the staging. Thanks Suze. And thanks again for doing such a terrific job. There's no question the staging greatly helped in selling the unit!"
Myra Statham, Remax, August 2010
"I was totally blown away!! You turned this elderly home into a bright, spacious, young and fun home! You really are incredible with an incredible eye! Thank you."
Jill Pennefather, Remax, July 2009
“You took a tired and outdated condo and turned it into a showstopper, within a very short time frame. With your eye for design & detail, the good features were now the focal points. The condo was transformed from “worn” to “wow” & sold after one open house. Thanks Suze, great job!”
Sandra Scott - Home Owner, Vancouver, BC
"We were very impressed with the ideas and insights that Suze provided in staging our townhouse - the transformation was incredible! More importantly, we received multiple offers after our first open house and sold in less than a week for 'over asking'. We are convinced that we would not have been able to secure this final selling price without the service that Suze provided. This was our first home 'sale', and we had been initially uncertain about the value that a stager would provide. In hindsight, working with Suze was the best decision we made. Thank you!"
Tait Kisby - Home Owner, Vancouver, BC
"Suze is amazing! I wanted to give my condo the best possible chance of looking great for the open house weekend and Suze FAR exceeded my expectations. I am so relieved that I decided to have Suze home stage my condo. I know that without a doubt, this played a crucial role in increasing the value on the multiple offers I received. My place sold in no time at all. In addition, Suze was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional, friendly, and really knew what she was doing. The actual staging process was extremely fast. I recommend Suze to anyone wanting to sell their home. I will definitely call on her in the future. Definitely!"
Kaia Hinderman - Home Owner, Vancouver, BC
“My husband and I had never worked with a “stager” and were a little nervous about it. Suze came over, talked to us, measured, took pictures and transformed my crowded townhouse into a fabulous contemporary showpiece anyone could imagine living in. She was kind about my treasured items that didn’t really work, incorporated some of my other things, and was great about the couple of items we refused to move. We plan on having Suze consult with us on our new home. Thank you."
Carol Dixon - Home Owner, Vancouver, BC
"I would highly recommend using Suze Interiors for staging needs. Suze took care of things above and beyond what we expected, and did so virtually seamlessly. We were especially impressed by this given the time constraints of the job. Suze took care of all our needs, and the results were amazing. Our apartment looked brand new, as though straight out of a magazine. It was a pleasure to deal with Suze; we quickly learned that she was very reliable, excellent at what she does, and were able to leave it all in her hands and trust that she would do an excellent job. We are more than confident that without Suze's work, we would not have had the results that we did in selling our home."
Steve Watts & Jenn Barnes - Home Owner, Vancouver, BC
"We had moved into a beautiful new loft space just a few months ago, and although we were well on our way with purchasing new pieces to complete our eclectic decor, there were elements of living in an open-concept space that we were having difficulties making work. I called Suze, she came over, and within a short time she looked at what we had already done, used it as inspiration, and completed the last few elements we were missing. The one I enjoy on a daily basis is my new desk and workspace, which can only be described as 'genius!' We've sought Suze's advice before, and I'm sure we'll do it again in the future, as she never fails to add that touch of style and completeness that we need."
Jackie & Simon
“Ever since the sale of my condo at the end of October, I have been waiting for a few calm moments to send to you my warmest appreciation for your indispensable help. In a difficult market for sellers, your help with staging it was definitely instrumental in its sale. Your expert advice brought in more potential buyers, and resulted in an earlier sale than I would have had without your input. Both resulted in reduced stress for me. In the existing real estate market, I was beyond pleased that I was able to sell it not at a bargain basement price, but for the price I knew my condo was actually worth. Because I was buying another property, this was particularly important. I'm now excitedly looking forward to moving into my brand new home in just a few days. Please accept my heartfelt thanks!”
Lynda Stefiuk - Home Owner, Coquitlam, BC
"As a Realtor, in a busy Real Estate Market, it is wonderful to be able to rely on the skills and creativity offered by Suze. Suze has been instrumental on the quick and successful marketing of my listings. I know that I can call on Suze to produce an effective presentation of any home and that her improvements will radically increase the sale ability of the listing giving more dollars in less time. With budget in mind, Suze provides a thorough consultation with recommendations making the necessary changes to show the property to its greatest potential. In a very competitive real estate market, the finer points of staging can make the difference!"
Mike Rampf, Remax
"Suze has done a great job for clients of mine who unfortunately had to sell their new home within a month of taking possession. The moves in and out were handled quickly and efficiently, and the gorgeous decor contributed to a selling price almost $100,000 more than they had paid - truly a satisfied customer. I would not hesitate in recommending Suze for further staging jobs for my clients."
Scott Sibley, Prudential Sussex Realty
