Simple Elements is a locally owned and operated Home Staging and Redesign company serving Ottawa and surrounding area. We offer a range of services to suit your budget and needs whether you are selling your home or living in it.
Nicole Schenk, a multi-talented interior stylist, is known for the exceptional and extensive customer service she provides successful professionals in the Ottawa metropolitan area. She helps clients in Barrhaven, Kanata, Manotick, Orleans, Gatineau and other area communities stage their homes so they can sell them more quickly, for more money. She trains them on how they can achieve maximum results by applying such strategies as updating the colors in their home, de-cluttering, and changing floor layouts.
“I educate sellers and realtors alike that staging is a necessity, not a luxury, and that small steps can increase the selling price by 15,000 or more,” she points out. “I tell clients that if they don’t stage their home, it helps the neighbors sell their homes.”
Nicole is known for her tenacity, creativity, attention to detail and her innate ability to recognize the potential for interior space. She is a gifted interior consultant and color expert who helps clients overcome their most pressing challenges in preparing their homes for resale. Her substantial decorating expertise, her lifelong “passion for all things design,” and her extensive study of fashion design enable her to advise others on how best to enhance their interiors.
Nicole’s clients benefit from the organization, time management, people skills, attention to detail and other insights she gained during her earlier career working in management and visual merchandising for leading Ottawa-area retailers. That career taught her how those outlets can maximize profits by creating an “eye catching” in-store experience.
Nicole, who also gained invaluable experience running a highly successful home-based business, earned a BA at the University of Ottawa. She is an avid learner who keeps current on industry trends by continuing to take classes on home stylizing. She is also a member of RESA and serves on the board of the local RESA Ottawa Chapter.
