A Guide to Effortless Home Staging  

By the Engel & Völkers Team

When it comes to looking good, we don’t want to appear as though we tried too hard achieving it—and home staging is no exception. With over 18 years of real estate experience, one of our in-house experts Suzie Doratti of Engel & Völkers Okanagan has also made a name for herself as a home-staging consultant and specifically for being able to capture a home’s laid back, yet sophisticated look. Suzie has given countless homes the kind of je ne sais quoi facelift that makes them inexplicably attractive to potential buyers, so here are a few tips from the pro herself that’ll give your home that certain #WokeUpLikeThis appearance.

A Living Symphony

By the Engel & Völkers Team

Piet Oudolf composes internationally acclaimed symphonies. His instruments? Prairie lilies, meadow rue, moor grass and peonies. When it comes to the art of horticulture, Oudolf is often recognized as second to none in the realm of arranging gardens.

New Yorkers have probably come into contact with his work via the city’s ever-popular High Line and Battery Park gardens, which he designed in 2006 and 2003,

When we dream of Venice, we imagine ourselves wandering through canals and criss-crossing between neighborhoods, enjoying the historic beauty and culture of the city. Unsurprisingly, so do many others across the globe.

According to Engel & Völkers’ latest Venice market report, the city’s residential property market is witnessing growing demand, especially near areas on the Grand Canal. This is met, however, with a limited availability of homes in the most desirable areas of the city.

“The majority of buyers are looking for a second home in Venice, or an investment property for short-term rental to tourists,” said Mauro Lozza, Managing Director of Engel & Völkers in Venice. Currently, international buyers account for
