I was reluctant to stage the house prior to selling it, as it was in great shape clean and fully renovated. Clearly a couple rooms were difficult to determine the layout, and the agent suggested we call Allison to stage it properly. I was reluctant at first, not so much from a cost perspective, as the cost is such a small part of the overall sale value, it was more time, as we were being inundated by COVID 19 news and I needed to sell it fast. Allison staged it in a day, it looked unbelievable and it sold in less than one day and over offer. I have no doubt her interior finish was instrumental in the sale, in this case it was the best investment I've made. I have worked with designers overseas, and she is as good or better than they are. Thank you Allison, you have great vision.

Allison did a fantastic job staging my entire house from top to bottom. She made my house look better than it had ever looked in the past. Every room received little touches that made it look like it was featured in a magazine. Her team was extremely professional, clean and quick. I would recommend Allison and Across Ottawa Home Staging to anyone.
Aleina L. Project Date: February 2020
Allison and her team took on my project on a very short notice and did an excellent job! I was putting my house on the market and needed to prepare it for sale. Allison quickly and flawlessly assessed the interior, gave recommendations on the improvements and staged the house within a week of the initial assessment. Allison also communicated with me throughout the entire process and ensured that the house looked impeccable for photos and showings. Overall, 10/10!

We often refer Allison to our clients with complete confidence. Recently she worked with a gentleman selling his vacant but spacious condo. Allison created inviting spaces using staging techniques to highlight the proportions of the condo perfectly. The outcome was an immediate and competitive sale that far exceeds our client’s expectations.

Across Ottawa home staging did a superb job of finding and installing very appro furnishings and decor items for the space. Living room, dining room, two bedrooms and small office were done with excellent taste. The apartment was never more beautiful and it showed marvellously well for the realtor. Buyers were very impressed and I am sure the staging greatly contributed to the success of the sale.
Florent Fillion Project Date: December 2019
We have used Allison for our last two projects and the response from buyers was immediate in both cases. We sold our completed units within a week of stagging the housesand sold the third one a few weeks later. Her approach is proffesional and her team is very efficient. Once stagged, the houses look amazing and the buyers can see themselves living in the space. We have sold our last three homes using her team.
Jessica Brighton Project Date: September 2019
We used Allison at Across Ottawa Home Staging and Interiors to help with the sale of our father's house after he had passed away and were so happy we did. Allison was professional, enthusiastic and quick to respond to all communication and questions. The house looked amazing and Allison coordinated with other trades on our behalf which helped to make the whole process incredibly seamless. We highly recommend her services!

Across Ottawa Home Staging was fantastic. I contacted Allison with short notice as I decided to stage my listing later on in the selling process. She was available immediately and booked to see my townhouse within a couple days. Allison was so professional, honest and her advice was genuine. I had a certain budget to work with and she worked with this and I believe was reasonably priced. She was confident in the transformation and she delivered! Her team completely transformed our listing, we had 5 offers and sold the townhouse for over asking price within less than a week of it being listed. I truly believe that the staging increased the value of our purchase and added to the competitiveness of our townhouse. I believe that we would not have received the price we did if we had chosen not to stage, so the investment was well worth it. Thank you to Allison and her team, highly recommend!!!
Kevin Dale Project Date: March 2019
Across Ottawa Home Staging and Interiors were a tremendous asset to us in selling our house. It took less than a day for their team to stage our home to the very highest standard, using our own furniture and artwork. It was a great pleasure to see the final result, and to receive so many compliments from friends and family who saw the listing photos online. We would definitely recommend that this service is a most worthwhile investment.
Bob and Marianne R. Project Date: Spring 2019
Good afternoon Allison,
Bob and I wanted to follow up with you on our meeting last December. We implemented your recommendations, including painting and setting up an office on the main floor.
Our house went on the market in early April and sold just after the Easter weekend. It will close mid-June.
We believe it sold quickly because it showed so well.
Thank you for your outstanding level of service to help us in this process.
Kevin and Fran D. Project Date: Winter 2018/2019
"Thank You” to you and your team for the work that was done to get our house ready for sale a couple of weeks ago. We had lots of great compliments from friends and family who saw the photos in the online listing, and as you may know, the staging definitely worked, given that our house sold in two days for over the asking price. A great result all round.
Our very best to you and your team.
Julie T. Project Date: March 2019

The team was timely and did a wonderful job - did not have to worry about a thing !
Home sold above asking.
Great team to work with and would highly recommend them

I just came home, and my jaw dropped when I saw the magic that you and the team did!!!
It looks stunning, absolutely fabulous!!! If my life’s circumstances were a bit different, I would fall in love with my house all over again and never move from here!!
A very, very sincere thank you. You are absolutely amazing!!!!!
Project Date: June 2018
Allison did a complete transformation on our house. Compliments during the open house were extremely positive; many people saying they came because of the photos.
When she incorporated our artwork into her design she moved every piece to a new, much better location making me ask myself "why didn't we hire her as an interior designer?"
- Neoteric Developments Project Date: May 2017
We have hired Allison to stage a few of our properties. She has an exquisite sense of style and her team is punctual, organized and dependable. We would not hesitate to recommend Across Ottawa Home Staging for your home or business.
Marten B. Project Date: September 2017
Allison and her team of professionals did an excellent job of both staging & de-staging. Easy to deal with, responsive and good practical suggestions. The house got rave reviews from agents and buyers and sold in 3 days.
Susan F. Project Date: June 2017
So pleased with our beautiful apartment. Moving into a new condo on July 1st weekend in Ottawa while starting a new job the same day looked impossible but Allison and her team made it stress free. Allison and Emily designed the space with beautiful affordable furniture , they ordered everything in advance and were there upon delivery so we could be at work. What could be better than coming home from work to a beautifully decorated apartment ? Stress free and gorgeous!!!
France B. Project Date: September 2017
Working with Allison and her team was a charm. Allison was very understanding of our needs and was able to provide effective solutions while being really flexible in her approach. She really came up with creative solutions to ensure that we could see this project through with our available resources. Allison and her team are magicians! I am looking forward to our next project! Thank You!
Reshmi R. Project Date: April 2017
Allison staged our house when we put it up for sale ... and without any hesitation we can say that she is one of the best in the business, and we truly mean it! With minimal investment and simple touches, she transformed our house to a beautiful home. Proof is ultimately in the pudding - our home sold on the first day of listing. We highly recommend Allison for home staging and interior decorating services.
Michael L. Project Date:
March 2016 I've worked with a number of Stagers in the past 6 years of Real Estate and approx 2 years ago I was looking for a way to showcase my listings at a new level and was looking for partners to help me raise the bar. After seeing numerous homes with clients that were fantastically staged by Allison and her team I finally reached out. From our first meeting to every Staging Consult since she has consistently been at the forefront of client engagement and teamwork. I look forward to work with her and Across Ottawa Home Staging for many years to come!
Jen S. Project Date: March 2017
Allison has staged our home in two instances, and both times, she and her team did an incredible job. Our homes showed incredibly, and both sold in a matter of weeks. She has impeccable style, attention to detail, and an ability to also work with your existing furniture, while mixing in new pieces to create an entirely new look. I cannot recommend Allison and her team enough!
Daniel H. Project Date: February 2017
Allison came in to help us stage our house for sale. She recommended things we had never thought of and we implemented essentially every thing she recommended. We think our home as nice before but after making her recommended changes, our house was much more beautiful and much better prepared to receive potential buyers.
Sue. D. Project Date: January 2017
I chose Allison after phoning a few staging companies and getting return calls. She was wonderful on the phone and you could tell she really wanted to understand my needs and goals. When I met her in person, I fell apart because the house was my sister's who had passed away and I was responsible for selling it. Allison was amazing with dealing with my feelings and budget and took charge so I didn't have to make difficult decisions. I left everything in her hands and she chose paint and pieces for the space that I absolutely loved. I would recommend her to anyone, in a heartbeat.
Glenn M. Project Date: February 2017
Across Ottawa staged our vacant townhome for rent. Allison was prompt, friendly but businesslike and seemed to immediately have a vision for decorating the place. The results were transformative, resulting in very favourable showings and a quick rental. When it came time to destage, it was carried out efficiently and problem-free. We will not hesitate to have our next rental property staged, and we will definitely be calling her back.
Tracy A. Project Date: December 2016
A Big Shout out to Allison and her team of professionals. I recently had my own condo listed on the market for over 4 months and as a Broker should have known that staging is required on a vacant property. From the moment I called Allison I knew that my condo would be staged, marketed and sold quickly. In fact our first showing after Allison staged our home ended with a sale. I cannot thank Allison enough for making the staging process just a phone call and the rest was looked after with professional guidance and expertise. Satisfied would be an understatement we are thrilled. Thank you so much Allison we look forward to working with you again in the near future. Tracy Arnett Broker of Record Tracy Arnett Realty
Roxanne B. Project Date: February 2017
Allison and the 'girls' as she calls them, Stephanie and Sonia, recently staged my house for sale.... and the results? AMAZING! My townhouse definitely looks incredible and I am very hopeful it will sell quickly. (UPDATE: I had an offer in TWO days! and the sale was completed in one week - amazing!) Stephanie and Sonia paid meticulous attention to detail and showed their creativity using many of the things I already had to give every room a fresh new look. From Allison's first visit for a walk through to her fast response to emails to Stephanie and Sonia's work on the actual staging day, I was very impressed with every aspect of Across Ottawa Home Staging. There is no question I would recommend them to my friends. I wish I could take them with me to my new place in new city so they could work their magic there too! Thanks for everything 'girls'!
Jane M Project Date: November 2016
Working with Allison and her team (Stephanie & Sofie) was such a positive, fun experience. We used them for two different purposes - staging for "selling" & staging for "living". Both transformations were absolutely stunning thanks to their incredible vision, sense of style and enthusiasm and we would readily use them again!! Thank you
so much Allison.
Melissa R. Project Date: October 2016
We loved working with Allison. We are a boutique developer and our homes are very modern. We need good staging to help bring in warmth to the space. Allison had a vision for one of our units, she communicated it to us and then delivered on what she said and within the set timeline. We have booked a considerable amount of showings for our unit and we know that the staging has helped tremendously with this. We will use Allison again and would recommend her to anyone.
Bill and Pam L. Project Date: December 2016
Allison gave us the roadmap and design advice that allowed us to prepare our 95 year old house for the Real estate market. Her colour choices for the exterior work so well we hate to be leaving our home of 40 years. Why didn't we do this earlier? Allison is a delight to work with!
Thom F. Project Date: July 2016
Excellent and very professional. My client's have been served very well by Allison and her team. She does the consulting first and then works within their budget to bring out the best in their homes. I have received many many compliments as to the work they do. I would highly recommend Across Ottawa Home Staging to all of my colleagues.
