Are You Planning on Selling Your Kelowna Home
and Don’t Know Where to Start?

‘Ponder no more! By visiting this site, you’ve just taken your first step in preparing your home for sale!


It is a well known fact in the real estate industry that a viewer’s positive first impression is a key factor in selling homes. We understand how powerful a positive first impression can be. We can help you, the seller, to benefit financially from that all important positive first impression.

The Real Estate industry has significantly changed over the last few years.
 Previously buyers wouldn’t mind doing some repairs, such as painting and sometimes even structural work, to a home. 
However, these days, buyers are leading busy lives and they want to be able to hit the ground running when they move into their new home. They expect houses to be in a ‘move in’ condition. In a buyer’s market, they know that if they can’t get what they want from one seller, they will be able to move on and find what they want from someone else. 
That’s why it is essential to give potential buyers something positive to remember about your home.

Modern day life often doesn’t allow homeowners a lot of time to repair and restore their home. Unfavorable work life balances and demanding family life can mean that very little time can be afforded in the preparation of homes for sale regardless of how important it is. However, that doesn’t mean that your property can’t be well prepared! That is where we can help.

Home Staging is the act of preparing a property for sale in the real estate marketplace in order to secure the best possible sale price and  is the only pre -sale service  that actually brings measurable value.
Statistics prove that preparing your Kelowna home using the systematic approach of Home Staging
strengthens and positions sellers above other properties, regardless of what the economy is doing!
Why?  Because presentation matters…. a lot!!

What others say about us

Dean Desrosier

As a real estate agent, I need my clients to hear the honest truth and for them to be given a clear action plan for staging. Often, there are things that “they don’t want to hear” and this is where Kym shines. Her advice is spot on and given in such a way that empowers my clients.

Clients love her, houses sell very fast and for top dollar. Sounds like a fit for me. Thanks to Kym, I have happier clients, sell faster and now I offer staging to all my clients (even the lower price houses). Why? Because it works!

When we listed our house for sale Prep This House came highly recommended to us. Their friendly but honest direct attitude took our tired looking home and show cased it in its best light. Their advice and recommendation list quickly turned our house to a marketable show home. We found them to be very professional and sensitive to help us de-clutter “our stuff”.
