What’s new at GreenApple?

As they say, time flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. Something I will try not to let happen again!

However, it’s not because we’ve been slacking off . . . quite the opposite. Our Calgary Home Staging and Photography business is really growing here at GreenApple with an expanding client list, expanding services, and expanding office help (and thank goodness for that!).Calgary Home Staging and Interior Photography, spa bathroom

So what have we been up to? One thing I really like about running my own business is that it is never a dull moment, or overly repetitive. We’ve helped many home owners and Real Estate Agents with Staging, Pre-Market Consultations, Pre-Photo Stylings — and, of course, Interior Photography!

One interesting project in the last few weeks was the styling and photography I did for Vicon Homes, a local craftsman Home Builder. Check out their latest home building project and our photos here!

Another fun job was providing a Pre-Market Consultation to some Calgary home owners at the request of their Agent. I gave them the advice they were looking for to effectively prepare their home for sale. The best part of it was going back a few weeks later and discovering they actually implemented nearly everything I suggested — and it looked great!

They even purchased some items for styling (which they happily get to take to their new home). I then used those items, and other things I found around their home, to add the “finishing touches” before our photo shoot. Take a look at our awesome home transformation and mini-staging results.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll be back soon again.

The Difference great Real Estate Photography makes in a Home Sale!

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful home in SW Calgary. The Realtor had asked me to provide a pre-market staging consultation, so I got a preview of the listing.

I gave a few styling tips and furniture arrangment ideas as the home owner and I travelled from room to room, but what was mostly on my mind was that I couldn’t wait to come back with my photography equipment! Everything about the home – from the decor and artwork to the cleanliness, organization and maintenance – just had “Your search is over” written all over it!

As I had expected, the home has already sold . . . but I was doubly pleased to learn that GreenApple’s real estate photography and slideshow played an integral part in the sale — as was reported to me by the Realtors, it helped clinch the deal!

Like most people, I take great pride and pleasure in a job well done. And knowing that what I do has made a real difference helping these home owners to move on to their next chapter more quickly . . . it’s the icing on the cake!

To see the difference our photography makes, view our portfolio!
