Transformative Home Selling in Peterborough & the Kawarthas: A Story of Success


In the world of real estate, every home has a unique story waiting to be told. We recently had the privilege of helping a family sell their parents’ home. The journey was not only about selling a property but about transforming a house into a welcoming home for a new family.

The Connection:

Our journey began when the owners’ children, who were referred to us by an amazing past client, reached out for assistance in selling their parents home. Right from the initial meeting with the daughter, it was evident that they were open to guidance and willing to put in the effort needed to maximize their property’s value.

The Collaboration:

Understanding that the home needed a bit of sprucing up to fetch a higher price, we collaborated closely with the family. Together, we tackled key aspects that could significantly impact the home’s appeal.

  1. Decluttering and Painting: The first step involved decluttering the space and removing personal belongings. We then brought in a talented painter to apply a warm, neutral white throughout the house—a color that resonates with a broad range of potential buyers.
  2. Kitchen and Bathroom Revamp: Recognizing the importance of a modern kitchen and bathroom, we painted the oak cabinets to add brightness. Additionally, we replaced flooring in the kitchen and entryway, creating a fresh and vibrant atmosphere.
  3. Lighting Makeover: Understanding the impact of lighting on a home’s ambiance, we updated all the fixtures. Working within a friendly budget, we collaborated with Dekor Lighting in East City, Peterborough, to find modernized lights that elevated the overall feel of the home.
  4. Curb Appeal Enhancement: The exterior of the home needed attention too. Evan Telford Property was brought in to clean up overgrown gardens and enhance the curb appeal. A crucial step in making a positive first impression on potential buyers.

The Final Touch:

To add the finishing touches, we engaged the expertise of our amazing staging professional and her team, Jamie. Her skills turned a house into a home, allowing potential buyers to envision themselves in the space.

The Result:

The culmination of everyone’s hard work and dedication was remarkable. After implementing these strategic changes, we listed the home and received an offer within just 10 days on the market. This success story underscores the importance of collaboration, vision, and a commitment to making a house feel like a home.


In the world of real estate, transforming a property requires more than just listing it on the market. It involves a collaborative effort to enhance its appeal, making it irresistible to our target market. Our recent journey with the family not only resulted in a successful sale but also highlighted the transformative power of expertise, knowledge, and hard work.
