The decision to buy is an emotional one- the buyer wants to feel at home and proud of where they live!!!

Potential buyers know within the first 30 seconds whether the house they have just come to “look at” will be their home – people sense quickly the things that make them comfortable.

Creative Stripes began by forging long lasting relationships with a small group of realtors who have seen homes we do – treasures to be passed on! We now offer our services throughout the GTA and work only on customer referrals. In that time we have added the services, which speak to the modern and cutting edge seller – “detailed showcasing”, consultations, full staging, project management and graphic design work.

Creative Stripes has only your interest in mind – we want to part of that celebration when you sell your home.

Creative Stripes is able to provide project management, from top to bottom renovations. We will provide layouts to help you see the finished product. What wall should come down? What room should be here? What colour should I paint? What furniture should I buy? So let us take your initial design ideas to the next level during renovations.

    I have known Kristina Dobbin for nearly three years and she has become a good friend and business associate.

    In 2008, I had some renovations/updating done on my home and Kristina was the lady that helped me choose the new hardwood floors, the marble for the entrance hall of my bungalow and the colours for the whole house. Her taste is impeccable and I was never steered in the wrong direction.

    She is unfailingly cheerful and is very knowledgeable on home updating and decorating.

    I would have no problem in recommending Kristina who has great vision and is not afraid to try new and innovative products to give a home a whole new lease on life.

    My experience in working with Kristina was straight forward, logical, easy for me to understand and most important – hugely successful. From the first time we met I found that she listened to my ideas for my renovation completely before weighing in on what I should consider doing which really ensured she had a deep understanding of what was important to me and made overall process of renovating my home - very smooth. After discussing my goals for a kitchen and bathroom renovation, Kristina helped me with arranging contractors for quotes and assessment of responses, through to managing the contractors for staying on time and within budget while minimizing changes in scope and led to a great working relationship with my general contractor. Kristina’s sharp understanding of real-estate value, which she’s gained through real experience in Toronto’s market helped me make sure I put efforts in areas what will maximize my resale in the future. Her knowledge of design, from trends in color selections as well as building materials, combined with any eye for timeless styling has made the finished look of my home a huge improvement and I have received rave reviews from visiting friends and neighbors. I have recommended her my friends and will continue to do so for anyone looking to do a home improvement project – big or small.
