of Decorating Solutions (Niagara) Inc
& Staged2Sell

Leading her Decorating Company to success through her constant promise of delivering excellence, Christine Rae is an Entrepreneur, Decorator, Stager, Trainer, Over Achiever, and Networking Professional.

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 CSP™s 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 for sale."

"Training in North Carolina & Seattle, I'm certified in the skill of preparing a property for sale initiated and licensed to bring the training opportunity to bring a Staging Course to Canada."

Trainer - Christine teaches two separate comprehensive, intensive business Staging training sessions for Realtors®, Interior designers, Decorators, professional organizers, and new business entrepreneurs. Her style is energetic, encouraging and practical as she shares her knowledge and experience of the Staging Industry through a proven practical staging business process.


Achiever - Christine is writing a book and 2005 will see the introduction of new products and services to her business, including decorator training. NEW! Christine has co-written a Staging E-book. Click here for details!

"Interspersed throughout my education in this field, I have gained knowledge and experience in the Chinese art of Feng Shui. I am continuing my studies to master certification level, with Feng Shui Master & teacher Jami Lin, in Fort Lauderdale Florida. The techniques learned are applied throughout my decorating & Staging work."
