After 10-15 showings without an offer, I realized the “bachelor in his 30’s” theme I had going wasn’t going to work. I contacted Jillian and she met with me right away to make a plan and had my home stage a few days later. Two hours after it was staged I had a showing and it sold before I could even re-list with the new pictures. I can’t thank her enough and will be using her services for all of my future sales. 100% satisfied.

Jillian and her team generously provided the set design in-kind for the Enchanted Family VIP Reception at the 2017 Children’s Health Foundation Magical Winter Ball. The set was used as a staging element for the Enchanted Family portraits.

Not only was her set design was an impeccable compliment to the theme of the event, but both she and her staff her a delight to work with. They were professional, efficient and provided a beautiful layer of creative in a room that was otherwise lacking decor. Jillian was able to seamlessly incorporate her design into the theme of the event with minimal guidance from the event management team – she had an incredible ability to understand the concept of the event and incorporate her vision.

I would strongly recommend Jillian for any of your staging and set design needs.

Thank you for your generous donation, Jillian.

When it came time to sell our home, our agent suggested we used a stager. I have to admit, we were reluctant as our home (I thought) was pretty much updated, only 10 years old and I had decluttered enough so why would I need a stager?

Well, after looking into the Upstaging website & seeing the beautiful transformation of homes, model homes etc. we decided that would trust in Jillian & her team.

I can¹t even fully describe how I felt when I first saw my house – staged from basement to our third floor. The paint color they suggested was perfect & made the room seem larger & definitely brighter. I loved the decorations they added – it was modern but my house felt cozy, warm & inviting and I loved that they used some of our furniture.

My kids 12 & 14 thought our house looked like it could be in a magazine. Jillian¹s team worked fast and they listened to my concerns and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. The pictures of our staged home were absolutely stunning and I received texts & comments from friends and neighbors about how lovely the pictures looked.

So after 8 days, two offers my house is now sold! I highly recommend Upstaging & Jillian¹s team. I look forward to contacting you when we move into our new home in the Spring for color ideas etc.
Thank you Jillian & your professional team of what we call magicians.

Every time Jillian and her team finishes staging one of our suites I immediately want her to come and stage my own apartment. Her designs are a beautiful balance of chic/modern with the perfect touch of warmth and homey feel. Working with Jillian is always a pleasure and she makes the process as smooth as possible for her clients. The model suites she creates not only allows our prospects to see the potential of the space but also plays a vital part in leasing our suites. I highly recommend her and her team for any and all staging needs you may have.

We had the utmost pleasure and privilege of working with Jillian and her Upstaging team. We had a very very short time to get our home ready for sale and received a recommendation from our Real Estate Agent Paula Hodgson to bring Jillian in to assist us.

This by far was the most amazing and fruitful advice we could have received. Jillian and her team are nothing short of brilliant and world class stagers. They were so professional, so courteous and so gracious. The furniture and accents they brought into our home for staging were so classy and transformed each and every room. The colour popped throughout our home and the furniture that Jillian brought in was just spectacular. Once our house was fully staged we had so many people comment on the fact that the changes just “transformed” the house. We can confidently say that our house sold in record time due to the glorious touches that Jillian brought into our home.

We know as we move into our new home that Jillian will be part of that journey as well. The feeling that Jillian brought to the house that we sold is one that we hope to carry with us to our new “home”.

Jillian, we cannot thank you enough for being part of such an important and personal journey. We appreciate everything you did for our family.

Jillian Summers partnered up with the Dream Lottery in support of St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation, London Health Sciences Foundation, and Children’s Health Foundation to bring the WOW factor to this year’s Treadstone Dream Home. It was extremely important that this home was fresh and welcoming to thousands of visitors walking through the doors. She exceeded our expectation by making the interior of this home sophisticated, elegant and rich! Jillian and her team transformed this home into what many could only dream about! She’s amazing to work with and we look forward to her bringing this talent to another Dream Home in the near future.


You and your staff made us definite believers in staging a home before listing. As you know,our home sold in 3 days for over the asking price. We feel your ideas helped to make this happen. Our home was brighter and rooms looked larger with the furniture that you used. We will be in touch shortly for ideas about colour,furniture etc. for our new home. Thanks again.


SOLD IN 3 DAYS, on a summer long weekend, for asking price, no conditions!

We engaged Jill and her team with a very quick time line. With one 15 minute consultation and a 3 hour staging, Jill pulled together a fresh modern look for our 16 year old house. I was beyond impressed with the final product. What was truly impactful was the creative way she repurposed some of our furniture – which looked great and saved us some rental fees which was much appreciated. If you are motivated to sell your home quickly – just make the call to Upstaging & keep living forward.

We have used Jillian for staging services several times and have always found her to be professional, easy to work with, and above all else – loved the results. Our homes have sold faster and for more money through Jill’s assistance. I can’t count how many times we’ve had a home to sell that either lacked luster or was vacant, not selling, and with Jillian’s intervention it sold within the next two weeks.

Her design abilities and choice of decor are unparalleled! I would highly recommend Jillian, whether you are thinking about selling, just purchased and need some assistance, or need to freshen up your own home. We believe in Jillian’s work so much that we have had her personally stage all of our homes and would not work with anyone else.

Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions about our experience with Jillian!

We were completely blown away by your wise council & many excellent decisions. Thanks to you my parents’ home of 61 years was refurbished, updated and beautifully fresh looking. Your presentation & vision were so good that when I first viewed the on-line video I thought I’d entered the wrong site. The house looked spectacular. We were thrilled with the quick selling time which we could never have realized without your helpful advice and speedy work & the excellent work of realtor Paul Merritt. Frankly, anyone who doesn’t consider your services is missing a huge opportunity. Sincerely {& Thanks again}

UpStaging’s vision statement, “creating the maximum return on investment” is 100% accurate. Jillian and her UpStaging team were critical in the sale of our home. Within hours, our home was transformed into a beautiful, modern space where buyers could easily envision themselves living. The transformation was incredible and can be measured by the results. We received four offers and sold our house for 10% above the list price on the first day the house was listed. Our experience with Jillian and her team has been so positive we are looking forward to her help in our new home. Thank you Jillian!
Kelly & Tony

THANK YOU Jillian and your team! We were absolutely blown away with the transformation that you guys did to our home. With your assistance we were able to sell our home in under a week. We will definitely be recommending you and your crew to whoever we hear is selling. Looking forward to using your assistance in decorating our new place. Thanks again.

Upstaging has been outstanding and extremely profesionnal in my experience with them.
They were able to magically transform my pottery studio (which was almost half the house) into a welcoming familyroom, my business office into a charming bedroom, and my pottery showroom into an elegant sittingroom. Jillian has an eye for possibilities – she can see potential beauty and irresistable design in unlikely rooms and spaces. This is her gift.
Her team is equally professional and very pleasant. They come in and strip wallpaper, paint, and generally do an amazing make-over for very reasonable rates.
I would highly recommend Upstaging.

Hi Jillian, just wanted to Thank you for the amazing job you and your team did transforming our home into a show stopper. Sold in just 5 days with offers over asking price. Thanks again.

Hey Jillian just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you my house sold in 5 days! You did an amazing job! If anyone thinks they don’t need staging they are so wrong pretty much got list price! You rock great job! I will be spreading your name around like wild fire!!!!

Jillian and her team were efficient, friendly and professional! We needed a quick sale, and with Jillian’s staging help, we sold in a mere four days!! We had three different showings our first full day on the market! Through the addition of her own material and the rearranging of what we had, Jillian was able to turn a normal looking house into something to yearn for! Her staging made us want to buy our house!! 🙂 Staging your house is the way to go for any sale and Jillian and her Upstaging team are the ones we trust!
John and Mary Jo.

Our house was on the market for 5 months; our agent didn’t think that we needed staging as our house looked great. It was updated, clean, decluttered and neutral. After 5 months on the market with no offers, we decided to hire a stager. With the insight of Jillian and her Upstaging crew, our house went from great to amazing. In no time at all, we had 2 offers and our house is sold.
No doubt, a direct result from the staging!
Thank You Jillian

Working with Upstaging has been a very pleasant and cost effective experience. We are in the midst of getting our house ready to put on the market. Jillian came in and worked with us to give us an initial consultation as to what are the most important improvements that need to be done. After the initial consultation, we realized that we actually had a lot of work to do. As time was of the essence, we wanted to make sure that improvements such as painting could be done immediately. What was good about Upstaging is that they came in and painted the whole house in a timely and efficient way. The quality of the workmanship was excellent and we are very happy with the outcome. Painting a whole house is an expensive endeavor, however, Upstaging has reasonable prices while never compromising on quality. Another benefit to working with Upstaging is that the staff are very friendly and professional and take the time to understand the specific needs and budget of the client. Because of the efficiency and ease of working with Upstaging, I would definitely recommend them to others.

I needed to sell my house and was advised it might need some staging to give it a more updated look. So Jillian and her crew came in and turned my house into something that looked really amazing. It had been on the market for 2 months with no offers. Within 2 weeks of the staging crew, we had a firm offer come in. My kids even commented at how amazing and modern the house now looked. Thanks Jillian! Your crew did amazing work!

“Jillian Delivered. That is the bottom line. She proposed a plan and once it was accepted, she had everything in order and done within days and the property sold shortly thereafter. I don’t think you could find a better stager in the London area.”

“I have known Jillian for over 7 years. She is trustworthy and knowledgable. Whenever I refer Jillian to my clients for staging their homes, they always thank me over and over for the introduction. Her work is professional and always done on time. There is no question that she has helped to obtain a quicker sale and more money for me and my sellers. I highly recommend her”

“My experience with Upstaging was very positive. My house had been renovated, including new paint, carpet, kitchen, and bathrooms, but it wasn’t until it was staged, that it really stood out above the rest. There were three other units in the complex at the time my condo when for sale, all clean and well kept, the others had been for sale as long as a month. My condo sold in four days! One of the comments from people viewing my condo were, “ Why would they want to sell” I believe that the staging process allowed the potential buyers to visualize themselves living there, and how nice it can be decorated. I am very glad that I had my condo staged and would like to thank you again”

“Jillian at Upstaging was incredible. I have used her services in selling my homes in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Her vision, attention to detail and positive attitude make her a dream to work with. Thanks for all of your help Jillian!”

“My wife and I were very impressed with your staging of her aunt’s home. We felt that you gave the home a very comfortable and modern appeal which went with the atmosphere we were trying to create, perfectly! Thanks again for improving the atmosphere and appearance of the home.”
Brad W.

“I cannot thank you guys enough for the outstanding job you did staging the vacant condo that Kelley McIntyre and myself had listed. The house showed very well without furnishings, but I was truly blown away after seeing how you and your team worked your designer magic and turned it from an empty house into a beautiful home. I was very impressed with the quality of furniture you use and how you easily adapt to the different style of homes you are working with. This was my first time using a stager and I will definitely be coming back to the team at Upstaging!”

“After months of having our home on the market with only a couple of bites and a deal that fell through, we enlisted the help of Upstaging. We thought having it empty and painted neutral was enough, but we kept hearing over and over again that people could not picture how their furniture would look in the space and how to use the rooms with the unique layout of the home. Jillian was wonderful to work with and her creativity worked wonders on our home and we we sold within 2 weeks of staging it!! What a relief!! I would recommend professional staging and Jillian specifically, to anyone!!”
Kerri R.

I just wanted to let you know that I really like what you and your team did today. The unique pictures you selected and use of some of the existing ones we have brought immediate focus as I move from room to room. The re-arrangement of the seats in the living area have softened the look and made it look less crowded. Thanks again!
