Your Home Stager

Portrait of Sue Taylor and Manon Messina, co-owners of Retreat Staging in Toronto.

Retreat Home Staging and Redesign Inc.
(416) 939-0659, sue@retreatstaging.ca, manon@retreatstaging.ca, www.retreatstaging.ca

A home staging company that offers something “a little different” than most other staging companies. Where others come in to a home and say “Everything must go!”, we take the approach from the standpoint of “What can we re-use?”. This cuts down the cost of staging and makes it affordable to all.

Co-owned by Sue Taylor and Manon Messina, “Retreat” was developed when we saw a niche in the industry that had not yet been tapped into, “staging” it seemed was only being offered to higher-end homes. But what about all those “other” homeowners? Was their home not their biggest asset and therefore privy to the TLC that would give them the greatest return possible when their home went to market?

We set out to create a company that would specifically help these homeowners. We built up our own inventory of furniture and décor accessories that are used to compliment and update what the homeowner already has. We acquired our own delivery van as well as a stable of well- established painters, cleaners and handymen.

Our mission is to provide every client regardless of income or house price with a beautifully staged home that presents well on the market within a budget they can afford. Our goal is to help you sell your home fast and for more money!

And the name Retreat? We feel that every home we stage should feel like a “retreat”. A place that you want to come home to.
