Alica’s Testimonials

How My Clients Feel About My Service

“I just wanted to tell you about my experience with  Alicia Russell, the Peggy Hill Stager, who helped me stage our home in before we listed in for sale. Alicia was fantastic. I have never dealt with a stager before and I was nervous about what to expect when she entered our home. Alicia was very professional and easy to talk to. She went through each room offering subtle ideas or suggestions about how I might consider changing things. At no time did she tell me what had to change, she just made suggestions. She didn’t make me feel like she was being critical of our home at all. By the end of her visit, I was totally comfortable with her. She was a joy to deal with. When our home went live Alicia checked out the pictures and contacted me to say how nice the house looked. She was very professional and was always available for follow-up questions and suggestions.”

“Alicia was prompt, professional, critical (in the best sense), left me liking the condominium more than I had before, unhurried but efficiently fast and a joyful lady with which to work. I think that you are lucky to have her services.”

– Bernard P., Seller

“5 Star Google Review ★★★★★. This is the second time that we have used the Peggy Hill Team and now with the completion of our sale we know why. Selling a home can be a very stressful time however our agent Skye and the Peggy Hill Team made the experience quite enjoyable. Everyone from the staging, photography and admin always had our interest first. Our stager Alicia was wonderful, she was helpful very easy to work with and knowledgable on what we needed to do to stage our home. We have used stagers before and definitely enjoyed working with Alicia the best. My family loved the experience and if I needed Real Estate in the future I will definitely use Peggy Hill again.

“5 Star Google Review ★★★★★. Alicia staged our home so well, it was spacious and open but still welcoming to potential buyers. We are very happy we choose The Peggy Hill Team.”

– Dorthy & Dennis K., Buyers & Sellers

“5 Star Google Review ★★★★★. As first time sellers we were feeling overwhelmed with the selling process. The Peggy Hill Team came highly referred to us and we made the decision to contact them. We are so glad that we did and will undoubtedly use them in the future! From the office staff, our stager – Alicia and our agent- Terry, we were thrilled with how knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant everyone was. We were very intimidated by the concept of having a stager and thought it unnecessary for an entry level town home like ours. When Alicia showed up at our home we had no idea what to expect. She was simply wonderful. She went through room by room making suggestions to improve our home. At no time did we feel like she was judging our style or home. She opened up our space immensely and made it look stunning! Everything we purchased for staging was something that could come along to our new home and practical. She welcomed pictures and answered questions even after she had left. Our advice to a first time seller is use a stager! The difference Alicia made to our home was incredible! Without hesitation we would recommend the team to anyone!”

“Our experience with Nina Fortin & The Peggy Hill Team has been amazing. The help that they provided us with the purchase of our new home and then sale of our existing home has been second to none.  When we purchased our dream home without even having our existing home listed for sale, we were really nervous that we wouldn’t be able to get everything done in time, but Nina assured us it would be fine, and it was. Alicia came for a walk through and gave us some great pointers, new paint colours and lots of awesome staging advice, and after a week of hard work our house looked beautiful, and was ready for sale. Matt came and took so many incredible pictures and then our listing went live on a Thursday. We had so many showings booked and by Sunday afternoon, after our first open house, we ended up with 6 offers! We had a sold sign on our lawn by the following Thursday, just one week after listing. And our house sold for almost 10% over our asking price. We are thrilled! The little touches that Peggy’s office provides are also great, the helpful information they have given us has been the icing on the cake. I even got an email the other day letting me know what the garbage day schedule will be at our new house!  Things like that show how much they really care about their clients. Thank You Nina, you’re the best!  Thank You Alicia, I’m going to call you for a decorating consultation at our new house! & Thank You Peggy! We couldn’t have done this without the help of your amazing team!!”

“My wife and I would like to share our experience with The Peggy Hill Team and the sale of our house. From the first time meeting Terry our agent, to the sale of our house, it was a fantastic experience. Terry sat with us before we listed and explained each step along the way and how we were going to get the true value of what our house was worth. Then came along Alicia to help with staging. Wow, what a fantastic person she is. Alicia had great ideas for the staging of our house and was very helpful and followed up to ensure we were comfortable with our set up. The showings started immediately and within days, our house was sold for more than we could have ever imagined. Very, very pleasant and fun experience through out the whole process with the Peggy Hill Team. Thank you so much for all you have done.”
