Entrepreneur - Starting her
Company in 2002, Christine always believed it would be the
success it has become today.
"After twenty years in Executive Business Management
and Sales, it was time to pursue my passion for interior
decorating. I am one of those lucky people with a natural
flair for décor, I have helped friends and family
over the years, I have taken courses, read the books and
trade periodicals. As they say "the universe will conspire
to bring about those things which are to be". A series
of events caused me to look at where I was in life and where
I wanted to go..."
Decorator - Graduate of the One-Day-Decorator
programme (ODDA), Certified Interior Refiner (CIR) and graduate
of the Sheffield School of Interior Design.
"It is my belief that most people know what they
like; and/or they have nice things. Sometimes they just
need help bringing those things together, to make their
home "feel" right. Marth Beck's book suggests
the décor of a house is the direct reflection of
how we feel about our life! - I knew I could help people!
Stager - Christine developed Staged2Sell service,
a professional Staging company, with a Team of CSPs
that provide Realtors® and Home Owners with the opportunity
to sell their properties quickly and for the most money.
"Developing the business plan for Decorating Solutions,
and moving beyond traditional decorating services, I wanted
to offer a "move in" service to home buyers, which
led me to think about helping people prepare their homes

in the skill of preparing a property for sale initiated and licensed to bring the training opportunity to bring a Staging Course to Canada."
