What our clients are saying about us…


This was the first time I had employed these services. I did not know what to expect when staging a property.
Great care was taken to explain the process and minimize the impact on my family.
All went well and the house was listed on a Friday and an offer received and accepted on the following Monday. For close to asking price.
I would certainly use or recommend this group again.-D. Picton
Altona Design created and executed an attractive design for the property that incorporated the wishes of the home owner and, I believe added to the value of the home. I would recommend them to anyone.
-B. Ciceri, Royal LePage


We used Altona Design for a review of recommended improvements to the home before selling, and by following her instructions we were able to sell within 10 days with two offers presented.

Sadiya did a wonderful job staging our home.  My husband and I were unsure about house staging, and finally when we did hire someone (not Sadiya), the result did not meet our expectations.  Our agent then put us in contact with Sadiya, who came in and saved the day!  She walked us through her vision and gave us lots of options, which really made us feel comfortable working with her.  The end result was amazing and beautiful and I know that it’s part of the reason our house sold faster than other ones in our neighbourhood.  If we ever need to sell another home, we would have Sadiya stage it for us.

Thank you again for the marvelous job you did in staging my listing in Markham. With a challenging layout, potentials buyers were having trouble imagining how usable the tiny formal room could be. But your insightful placement of furniture made the home seem welcoming and a lot larger than it is. I am certain that your staging services got the house SOLD.
It’s always a pleasure to dealing with professionals who are clear in their vision and can explain it just as clearly. Your creativeness, professionalism and your taking the time to explain staging basics to me are all truly impressive traits. It has been an absolute joy to work with you Sadiya and I certainly look forward to working with you in my upcoming listings.

“I recommended Sadiya  to help to stage a new client’s home. I was impressed with the quick responsiveness and quality of service for my clients. My client had a few specific requests and Sadiya followed through to ensure my clients got what they wanted. Both my clients and I were happy with the finished look and even another stager commented that “they did a great job”….
