" I was in the process of getting my home ready to go on the market, looking for a quick sale.  At the time, the house was vacant and my agent suggested staging the home in order to get strong offers.  I contacted Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging but was skeptical about whether the styling of pieces would match both the style of the home as well as the vision in my mind.  I put complete faith in Catherine Menard and I was pleasantly surprised and relieved.  Her selections were great and made a HUGE difference in the presentation of the home.  I would definitely recommend their services!  Thanks Groovy Chick!

" Cathy did a wonderful job staging my very small and pokey city bungalow.  When it went up for sale it appear much larger and lighter.  My home sold very quickly and I know Groovy Chick played an essential part.  Thank you for a great job Cathy! "

- Denise Goodchild, East York, ON,

" Cathy is amazing!  She helped us with the remodelling of our home.  Helped with paint colours too.  She's great to go shopping with... AND don’t forget your designer gets discounts at lots of stores! "

- Dianna Armstrong, West Hill, ON,

" Thank you so much Catherine, to you and to your team at Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging.  I was apprehensive and skeptical as to the hiring of a home staging consultant.  I had many questions, a few of them being: What exactly did the service of Home Staging entail?  Was it expensive?  And would I see a value in the return on money through the sale of my home?  Now after having worked with you, I can say that I understand better what home staging offers and that it was worth the value for your services.  There were other places for sale it my condominium building and mine sold faster and at a higher price than others that were also on the market but not staged.  I would definitely recommend your services to others.  Thank you again for the work that you did. "

" Selling your parents' home is not easy.  Your childhood and adult memories are forever attached to that brick and mortar structure.  

While you think it is perfect as is, your sales agent sees things that need to be updated and or replaced.  Packing up your parent's life into boxes, trying to determine what to keep, what is and is not salvageable, is quite a daunting and overwhelming task.  

Our real estate agent, Keith Jasper, was sensitive to the history that we were all attached to in that house.  When he suggested "staging" the house with more current paint colours, furniture and fixtures we were apprehensive about the expense and unsure of the value add.

Enter Catherine Menard of Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging.  She was very professional and considerate of the emotional tug that we were all experiencing.  Her suggestions for "making the house pop" were bang on.  Every time we went to the house during the preparation process we were pleasantly surprised.  The end result was a bright, modern, subtle, yet classic transition, and we knew we had made the right decision to work with her.  

Catherine's sense of style and simple approach, made an empty dwelling feel like home again.  Prospective buyers must have felt this too, as the house sold very quickly!

- The Small Family, Scarborough, ON,

" I’ve worked with Catherine Menard several times and she knows her stuff. Her consultations consistently result in quick sales and higher than listed offers. Our last collaboration netted the homeowner $180,000 OVER asking!! 

GROOVY CHICK Redesign and Home Staging (love that name!) will come in for a consultation and leave you with a complete checklist of everything that needs to be done. You can then choose to do all the work or some of the work yourself, or Catherine will arrange to have everything completed for you. Your home will be photo and market ready and will sell faster than your non-staged competition.

 I am always impressed with Catherine’s service…you will be too! "

" What started out as a paint color consultation, quickly turned into a full-on staging job.  Catherine Menard gave my home a whole new look by; selecting new paint colors, purchasing some wonderful decor items, and updating older ones.  She brought in a painter and handyman, and kept me up-to-date with photographs while I was on vacation.  I returned home to multiple offers and it sold that same day!  Catherine put my mind at ease during the entire process.  I absolutely loved the paint colors and decor so much that I brought them into my new home.  Thank you Groovy Chick Redesign & Home Staging! "

" I hired Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging to do a consultation with my clients who were selling their home. Catherine was very professional and provided great ideas for the homeowners to de-clutter and rearrange their furniture in order to show their home to it's fullest potential. Catherine also did the photography for this listing and the photos turned out perfect. She brought in her own props and was able to highlight all of the positive features of each room. I would not hesitate to recommend Groovy Chick Redesign and Home Staging to anyone and I look forward to working with Catherine again in the future. "
