Julie Metaxas

Owner/Real Estate Staging Professional

Passionate about finding ways of simplifying and optimizing the way we live, Julie is known for her practical approach to creating amazing and functional spaces with incredible timeless design. 


Beginning with a career in Human Resources, Julie realised her latent passion by founding KW Home Staging & Redesign.  The company, when it comes to owner-occupied home staging, takes a unique person-centered approach to home staging.  Julie explains,


"The way I see home staging for occupied listings is a bit toned down from what people expect of staging.  My focus is on the Consultation and detailing the preparation required in getting a house ready for sale.  This could mean focusing on any combination of requirements including: updates, repairs, decluttering, furniture rearrangment, organization and storage solutions.  I guide clients in making the best investment choices to maximize the ROI on their property.  'Showcasing' happens later, and in extreme cases like we see on TV, living in a showhome isn't always practical for individuals and families still living in the home.  I recognize that and understand that.  I talk my clients through their options for both the preparation and showcasing and come up with realistic and achievable goals; I provide practical solutions to help keep the house looking its best for both the listing photos, and while it's listed".


The principles Julie applies in home staging for real estate are a natural fallout of her interests and experience in buying and selling homes.  Julie and her husband Chris are local real estate investors, owning and managing multiple residential properties in Kitchener-Waterloo.  

Julie was born and raised amongst a large supportive family in Timmins, Ontario and graduated from the University of Waterloo, where she met her husband Chris.  Chris and Julie have two small children who never fail to put a smile on their faces each day!

Studies: Psychology (B.A., University of Waterloo), Human Resources (Post-Graduate, Conestoga College), Real Estate Staging Professional Certification Training (RESP, SLS Academy), Interior Decorating & Space Planning (Conestoga College)
