Dawn Fisher - Founder

DAWN FISHER

FOUNDER | DESIGNER | PROPERTY STYLIST

ID, CCSP, RESA, Staging Design Professional™ Expert Level

Dawn's passion for design and entrepreneurship runs deep in her family. Growing up surrounded by the entrepreneurial spirit and home building, she fondly recalls childhood memories of climbing scaffolding (her personal monkey bars), working onsite, and running from showroom to showroom, helping to select finishes. It's no surprise that Dawn pursued a career in interior design.

Her journey, like any entrepreneur's, has been rich with learning and wonderful experiences. A cherished chapter in Dawn’s history was her time in "Hollywood North." After completing her interior design education, she worked alongside incredibly talented production designers and artists in the art department. Over the years, she contributed to various productions, from mini-series to major feature films, even crossing paths with a few stars along the way. She has some amusing stories to share—just ask her!

During this period, Dawn also took on select design projects and continued to further her education. Her entrepreneurial spirit continued to grow, leading Dawn Fisher Design to focus on interior design projects and home staging. In 2020, she served as the RESA Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter (Real Estate Staging Association) President, and she was honored to be elected as the 2021 RESA Ontario President, where she was awarded RESA 2021 State/Provincial President of the Year.

 

This recognition inspired her to support the industry even further, where she became apart of the faculty at Sheridan College in their Intermediate Staging program.

ABOUT US
THE PROCESS

Property Staging Consultation

Get your property market-ready! All of our Stages [Vacant & Occupied] begin with our signature "Property Staging Consultation" Our skilled team conducts a comprehensive assessment to identify essential upgrades in fixtures and finishes, with the goal of maximizing your return on investment when you sell. We carefully assess your current furniture and decor, creating a strategy for what should stay and what should be removed during staging. Using photographs and videos of the space, we develop optimal enhancements, including aesthetic renovations and both interior and exterior staging, to ensure your property stands out and attracts buyers, resulting in compelling offers. Within two business days you are provided a detailed report outlining necessary preparations and a personalized to-do list. Additionally, you'll receive a detailed quote that includes costs for furniture, art, accessory rentals, delivery, and pickup, tailored to your home's size, the number of rooms staged, and the type of furniture required. $275 +hst Covered by most Realtors Note: If the Vacant Property Staging Consultation is just a quote with no staging notes it will be credited to your Staging & Styling Day when booked.

We suggest reviewing this report with your Realtor to finalize an action plan. Be generous with your timeline, ensuring you have adequate time to complete the tasks. This can be a stressful endeavor, so be kind to yourself and ask for help if needed. We can refer various vendors and partners to assist with the recommended tasks. This is also the time to confirm if you wish to proceed with the quoted staging services from Dawn Fisher Design so we can schedule your staging accordingly.
