Transition and Staging:
Just a little Boudreau boy feedback... yesterday after
school, when my 12-year old walked into the house, he simply stated
"AWESOME". When my 14-year old came home, he said
"SEXY". I just thought you should know the effect the staging
had on my kids lol. Thank you.

"Having experienced the services of GentleMove with my
mother, it was what I needed for my own move. I needed help not only for
moving but to figure out how to arrange my belongings in a total new
environment. Again, I was amazed to witness how easy my move was.
Not only could we plan in advance where to place my furniture but once on
spot, it was so easy to readjust while the movers were still there. They are
efficient, careful and patient. They adapt to your particular situation.
What a GentleMove with Jane.".
"You were truly a lifesaver..."

Transition and Staging
"Imagine your move, leaving behind all your life belongings
in your condo in the morning and arriving in your new senior residence in the
afternoon, feeling already at home and ready to pick back your daily life.
That's what I experienced with GentleMove".

"Thank you very much for beautifying the house at 286 Soupras which sold immediately. You were a pleasure to work with."

experience with Jane Guest and Gentle Move was one of the best I have ever had.
My mum lives in Montreal and needed to move and have the best care possible, as
she has Alzheimer's. Living in the Netherlands and the only child, this seemed
a huge mountain to cross.
contacting Jane I felt relief, not only for the practical details, but also the
loving, caring manner in which she treated both my mother and myself. I highly
recommend her services and am eternally grateful for all she did for us.”
"Jane has helped us
with a particularly difficult situation where the four storey townhouse in
Westmount of an elderly person became overly cluttered, verging on becoming a
hazard for the occupant.
Her mandate was such
that the clean up, which was expected to take a few months, actually only took
six weeks of remarkable effort.
resourcefulness, diligence, talent and initiative in bringing everything back
to normal and supervising numerous tradesmen were of enormous benefit to the
client and are greatly appreciated.It is a pleasure to
work with Jane who shows high motivation and energy."

We all expected this
work to go on for months, given the amount of work needing to be done.
Mrs. Guest completed her contract within a six week period.
Throughout her work, Mrs. Guest demonstrated a high level of
responsibility, very good organizational capacities and a great sense
of autonomy. I will not hesitate to recommend her services to any other
may need it in the future."

"As a real estate
broker, first impressions when presenting my listings to the public are
key. I have used Jane’s services for all of my recent listings, and her
staging is now part of my service offering for every new listing. She has
helped me to ensure my clients’ homes maximize their best features, and enhance
their overall appeal. She has a wonderfully kind, approachable manner,
personalized to suit each client’s needs. Her professionalism transforms
seemingly awkward conversations about decor & flow into valued &
appreciated recommendations. She remains focused on the objective at hand:
presenting a home in its best light, to ensure maximum sale price.
Personable, professional and chalk full of great ideas, I am completely sold on
Jane’s services and would highly recommend her! "
"...for the wonderful work you did on King
Edward. I know it made a huge difference in how the house looked and it
had an impact on the swiftness of sale as well as the sale price.
Philippe was very happy with the way it looked. You made it look clean
and modern without being overdone nor cookie-cutter or impersonal either.
It looked warm and you gave it a lived-in feeling and that gave prospective
buyers an idea of what was possible in the space. Thank you for
that. You have a great eye for colour too and gave it a harmonious flow
with echos of those splashes of colour. It was all well tied together and
uncluttered. You gave the space a nice energy."
Jane as a new Sotheby's agent was so pleasant and exciting.Her staging
capabilities are impressive and second to none! My clients were so
impressed! I look forward to doing more business with Jane. The more often I
see her, means I am getting more business so Jane, I hope to see you ALL THE

disponibilité dans la mise en marché de mes propriétés. C’est un plaisir de
travailler avec toi. J’apprécie comme mes clients l’œil nouveau que tu
poses sur le décor de leur maison et ton art de mettre en valeur les points

I cannot thank you enough.

solid and successful transaction."

"Jane’s staging had everything to do with my new
listing selling in FOUR days! She arrived for the consult and immediately saw
what needed to be done. The two of us
worked for 3 hours and totally transformed the condo/house. The most impressive
part is the way she uses what is there by giving it a new life…pulls objects
from cupboards and puts them places where they look fantastic! My client didn’t
recognize her home – loved the many changes and said how we should be having
this done before we move into a place, not when we’re leaving. I thought the best compliment to Jane is that
all agent and client comments were how immaculate and beautifully decorated the
condo was ….never a mention of the word “staged” That “WOW” factor she created definitely made
the difference in how quickly and easily this property sold – everyone is

"I would just like to say a few words
on Jane Guest and her business of home staging. We used Jane this June -09
to stage our home in Baie d`Urfe.
She was recommended by our agents at
Sotheby`s. The home was newly renovated and empty. She came in and chose the
perfect furniture for
our home. She even used some of her
own personal belongings. Our home looked fabulous! The clients all loved it as well.
In fact our home is now SOLD!!!
It sold in less than 5 weeks and we
had two offers. In this market today, that is remarkable!!
Thank you so much Jane for your help
in making our home even more beautiful, we would highly recommend you to anyone
who needs their home staged!!!"
Joanne Holland and Jean-Pierre
"Thanks Jane, you helped
a lot with your great work in making the house beautiful. Thanks to you,

weeks...! Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again soon."
