You heard right!… Thanks to the sales expertise of Team Aragon, our market savvy sellers plus Accentuates expert advice and effective rental accessories, this wonderful townhome in Heritage Woods Port Moody sold in 1 day!

Here’s what Team Aragon had to say!

“We had the pleasure of working with Katherine on our latest townhome sale. The townhome complex was stale with nothing selling for months. We referred Katherine to our clients and not only was her design direction fantastic we were also impressed with her professionalism and interaction with our clients. Subsequently, the home sold within 1 day! Our clients were pleased and we would not hesitate to refer Katherine again for future staging needs.”

Sold in 3 weeks!

Henry Street Before

We introduced this newly staged property to you in our May newsletter and it didn’t last long… Sold in 3 weeks! Effective staging plus quality rentals provided by Accentuate gave this home the added market appeal needed to sell it fast and for top dollar.



Henry Street After

“…the home sold for 101% of asking price, 3 weeks after being staged by Accentuate. I feel the staging was the major component of getting the price. While the home was not overly large, furnishing all the rooms made it seem larger, welcoming and ready to be ‘lived in’. Great comments from everyone regarding the staging and the comfortable living that the home portrayed.

“Kudos to you and your team… everything was positive, nothing negative and it is SOLD!”

Mark Edmonds, Prudential Sterling Realty

Behind the scenes of an Accentuate vacant stage…

At every ‘reveal’, our clients are always blown away at how stylish yet ‘live-able’ their home has become after we have furnished and accessorized their properties. That’s music to our ears… we honestly love what we do. Our commitment to help you sell homes fast is evidenced with each staged home that we complete and we are proud that our staging evokes true, heart-felt emotions in buyers, sellers and realtors alike.

A successful vacant stage should project a lifestyle that buyers cannot resist. Harness that emotion effectively and you’ve got a quick sale with a great return.
