Developed Skills

Renée began her career in Montreal producing Radio and TV commercials with advertising agencies, prior to media sales and marketing, where she was able to express her creative talents with sales. She was successful in this medium before she was introduced to the hotel industry in Montreal, then Toronto.

She honed her skills in hospitality sales and marketing, which depends on service and presentation. This was a perfect fit with her sense of style, which was enhanced through international travel. Having always enjoyed interior design, combined with her marketing/sales ability and outgoing personality, this was truly a career of passion. She spent 15 rewarding years with luxury 5 Star Hotels.

This experience gave her an opportunity to design and refurbish and entire 145 room boutique hotel in Ottawa, including corridors, lobby, restaurant, bar and meeting rooms. Occupancy was increased through creating a European atmosphere of design and service.

She consulted in the presentation of Paterson House, an Exclusive 5 Star Inn and Spa in Ottawa. The Inn was so impressive, it was featured on HGTV "Homes by Design" and W Network travel show "Best Places to Kiss".

Renée continued in the hotel industry in Ottawa, before giving her full attention to home staging.

You can be assured, with Renée's expertise, her goal is to help you increase the selling price of
your house by more than $50,000 and attract the most buyers.
