Tips & Tricks

If you have dated wood cabinets, think about painting them. If you have dark counters, paint the cabinets a lighter colour; and if you have light counters, go with a darker colour cabinet. Make sure to clean the cabinets before sanding and painting. Remember to paint the front and back of the doors as well as the trim around the cabinets. Final touch…change the knobs to give your cabinets an updated look.



Carla has produced many clips on preparing your home for sale. Here you will find clips from the DVD How to Stage Your Own Home, TV commercials she did for RE/MAX Canada's Fit to Sell program that have been aired on HGTV Canada, as well as TV and radio interviews that she has been featured in.
