Kristy Morrison turned near disaster into a thriving business, founding award-winning Capital Home Staging & Design when circumstances saddled her and her husband with two mortgages, one pay cheque, and a house that wouldn’t sell. Research revealed the concept of home staging and she decided to enroll in Design School. The very first time she applied her new skills the home sold four hours after it was listed and at the full asking price. She was hooked.
One thoroughly researched business plan, a giant leap of faith, countless hours, and over 450 staged homes later, Capital Home Staging & Design is Ottawa’s leading home stager. Remembering all too well the stress that two mortgages and a job loss brought to her new marriage, Kristy finds immense satisfaction by helping her company’s clients sell their homes quickly and at a better price.
After creating a successful home staging business (Capital Home Staging & Design) and having many local stagers ask frequently for advice she decided to become an APSD (Association of Property Scene Designers) Certified Master Trainer, where she got to train one on one with Karen Schaefer founder of APSD the world leader in home staging training & certification.
Kristy shares her life with husband Eric, dogs (Zeus and Marley) and cats (Smokey and Boscoe). Eric is the only one not rescued from an animal shelter. She loves skiing and is currently learning how to snowboard. During the summer, she can’t imagine anything better than time at the cottage and a good book after a long swim. When she is not working on the business or training new stagers you will typically find Kristy with her nose burried deep into business book. Dan Kennedy is her favourite business author!
