After several months of no offers, our realtor suggested we consider staging. After careful consideration of several stagers we decided to work with Sandra. She recommended a professional painter and worked with us to choose a warm and inviting colour scheme. The furniture and accessories she chose were perfect. Her attention to detail was impressive — even reading glasses placed on a stack of books in the family room! The unit was ready for showing on the Saturday of the Thanksgiving weekend and we had an offer ten days later. Thank you Sandra!

Thank you Sandra for the hard work, perseverance and commitment that you have put into completing the designing and staging of the penthouse. Your dedication and patience to provide the best customer service to a client is very much appreciated.
— B.T, Richmond
We can not thank you enough for the outstanding interior design and staging of our home. You gave every room a clear purpose that truly set us apart from the others as a showplace to be proud of. You really have exceeded our highest expectations.
We accepted an offer last night for our full asking price. We could not ask for a more favorable situation, and could not have done it without your expertise.
Sandra we look forward to working with you again, and would not hesitate to recommend you to others, they would be fortunate to have you! Please feel free to use our brochure in your portfolio.

When I sell a home, my goal is to shine the best possible light on it. That is where Sandra comes in. First impressions are so important and most buyers tend to choose (and spend more money on) homes that are presented well. A listing staged by Positive Space Staging + Design instantly stands apart from the rest and the proof shows in the speed the home sells and the high sale prices. Sandra has repeatedly made my clients thousands of dollars on the sale of their homes and I recommend her to anyone looking to truly showcase the highlights of theirs.

We did it! Although our town home was spacious, had new carpets and paint, 3 bedrooms, a wonderful deck and great natural light we could not attract interest through the MLS listing for over 2 and 1/2 months. Our realtor held weekly open houses and we had sporadic private showings. We hired Sandra to stage our home. Within the first week we had 5 private showings and the pace continued. In the market of 2010 when sales were down 47% from the same period in 2009 our home sold in 3 ½ weeks.
Sandra has a marvelous eye for space and detail. She is talented, professional and creatively worked with our furniture. Sandra is a positive and energizing force which facilitated our sale.
You can’t lose with Sandra!

I listed a house for sale at the beginning of November 2010 and it had to sell, the elderly owner had moved and it was full of older furniture. It was a very well cared for home on a big lot in a nice neighborhood but it did not show well.
I hired Sandra to stage the house using the existing old furniture. First of all she had to de-clutter. She removed some furniture and created space in the rooms. Then she went to work transforming the house into a home that anyone would want to live in.
I was amazed at the difference just by re-arranging the furniture and adding a few items, most of which she found in the cupboards and closets, she added visual value to the home. The home sold in 12 days and the comments from all the people who viewed the property were very good and several stated they loved how the home had been staged. Ask Sandra to show you the before and after photos, they’re impressive.
I would not hesitate to use Sandra again and would recommend her to any one who needs help selling their home. Proper staging will make the difference between a buyer buying your home, or buying someone else’s. It will also add value to your home in the eyes of the buyer. Professional staging can make all that difference, do yourself a big favor and call Sandra!

Sold! Clearly evident by the newly applied sticker on my “for sale” sign!
Without hesitation, I can say that if it were not for you and your efforts, I would not be able to make this claim. You transformed my cluttered, unorganized bachelor-esque apartment into a warm and inviting home. It took only one open house to receive an offer that turned in to a sale.
10 days, the length of time that my apartment was on the market. You may be able to put a price on your services, but a quick sale such as mine is priceless!
Thank you Sandra so much for all your help.
— Nicholas Masojc, Burnaby
It was a pleasure to work with Positive Space. I found the ladies to be knowledgable and enjoyed their eye for design. They carried an extremely professional identity and were always punctual. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
— Dane Lowe, Vancouver
Sandra, thank you for your expertise in Positive Spaces!
I invited the homeowner’s two very close friends to view the home on Sunday. They were awestruck. I got a kick out of their reaction. I am sure that they will give my clients great feedback.
I met my match in you. You work hard and you deliver exactly what you say you will do. Can’t ask for anything more.
It was my pleasure. I look forward to doing business again.
— Karen Hutchison, Sutton West Coast Realty
If you, or someone you know, is planning to sell your home, I would definitely recommend Sandra Hurtley of Positive Space Staging to assist in preparing for selling. She is very personable, fun and knowledgeable. She did a fantastic job for us and I genuinely feel she assisted us in obtaining the asking price for our home. Mostly, Sandra made use of the furnishings and items that we already had, then she and I went shopping together to purchase a few items to complete the job.
— Cheryl Opsal, Morgan Creek
Staging my house was recommended to me by my partner who had recently attended a seminar on the subject and by my realtor. The concept of dressing up this almost 50 year old house to highlight the possibilities and give it the “wow” factor was a concept that at first I didn’t grasp. I sure understand the concept now. When I saw that house after you had staged it the “wow” factor hit me right away. I was in awe by how amazing it looked. How the house presented, leaving me wondering what the others rooms looked like and what other pleasant surprises I might find.
Those who came to view the house, and there were over 30 viewings were very impressed by how the house displayed. The bottom line… the house sold in 10 days. I am convinced that staging the house created the interest and the resulting purchase of it. I have enjoyed working with Positive Space. Thank you for the great service, attention to detail and impeccable sense of style. I would and will highly recommend your services to anyone who is thinking about freshening up the look of their home or preparing a house for sale.
