PRES Members Active in Trade Shows!


Mila Herenda of MIZO DESIGN SOLUTIONS coordinated a booth at the Fraser Valley Real Estate Trade Show held in early February with Nancy Glover of MIND YOUR MATTER. Other PRES members participating were Yvonne Swain of HINT OF ELEGANCE and Sally Weatherley of EXIT STAGE RIGHT.

They all had a great time collaborating for this event, and enjoyed meeting real estate professionals. It was interesting to learn that some realtors already had strong affiliations with staging companies, while others were just starting out and were just learning about staging. Some didn’t believe in staging, while others embraced our industry.

We were fortunate to have the support of READY, SET, SHOW of North Vancouver, who were very kind in supplying furniture rental at a generous discount. Yes, the rug you see is from 18 Karat and part of READY, SET, SHOW’s inventory.

Pair Home Design Renovations Rock!

Louise Henry-Backstrom and her husband/partner Joseph of Pair Home Design have done some fabulous kitchen and fireplace renovations for their client. Pair Home Design offers a variety of services other than just home staging. Be sure to check them out.

Here is a testimonial from their happy client:

Louise and Joseph have transformed my kitchen.  It was small, outdated
and virtually non-functional.  With Louise and Joseph’s help, it’s now
open, light, and a delight to cook in.

Joseph and Louise guided me through every stage of the process, taking
my ideas, improving them, and designing a wonderful new space.  They

sourced materials for me, worked with all the trades, and nudged me in
the right direction when I had trouble making a decision.  They worked
tirelessly to find the materials and fixtures I liked and made sure I
was comfortable with all the choices that were made.

The renovation was done with a fixed budget and Louise and Joseph
worked with me throughout the process to ensure I got excellent value
for my investment.  I couldn’t be happier with my new space – thank
you Joseph and Louise!
