Gloria has a Degree in Fashion Design, has earned both the Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) and Canadian Staging Professionals (CSP) designations. For a number of years, she was a mentor for the Canadian Staging Professionals program and also staged properties for the TV show Housecapades. Since 2002, she has successfully built Christy Michaels Lifestyle Solutions Inc. into one of the premier staging companies in the Golden Horseshoe. With her team, she has assisted in the sale of over 2000 properties worth over 1 billion dollars, from modest condos to multi-million dollar homes and estates. Her projects also include decorating model homes for up-market builders such as Legend Creek Homes, PCM and Markay Homes.
Gloria brings her 15 years experience in the fashion accessories and home décor industry to home staging, having successfully founded and operated two companies where she designed collections for most of the major department and chain stores across Canada. Staging requires planning, organization and communication, three key business skills that she has successfully honed over the years.
Gloria has lived on 3 continents and after having relocated 8 times, she quickly realized how important it was to “stage” a home for sale – all her homes sold in 3 weeks or less. She’s passionate about all that she does, and keeps current with design trends. She always puts her clients first, and frames her ideas by listening and understanding their needs and goals. Her talent, creativity and keen eye for decorating will transform a room and will result in a look that is as unique and individual as her clientele. Gloria prides herself on her ability to give her clients a professional result while staying within their budget. Put her knowledge, energy and experience to work for you!
