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.

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!

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!

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 recieve potential buyers.

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.

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.

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

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'!

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 enthuiasm and we would readily use them again!!
Thank you so much Allison.

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.

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!

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.

From the vision, design, physical staging and finishing touches, Allison Ross and her team are fantastic and always deliver. Our team have been working with Allison for years, and word could not express our gratitude and satisfaction with her team. There is no way we could have done this without you.

Thank you Across Ottawa Home Staging!
