My background is in fashion and I worked full time as a sales agent representing a ton of cool brands for over 6 years. It was a fun job right out of college that involved travelling, working with designers and store owners and learning a ton about being a lady boss. The owner of the agency, Alyssa Kerbel, was and still is a major inspiration to me and continues to guide me through business decisions. Alyssa went on to build a children’s clothing brand called Mini Mioche and I designed the store(s) for her and have been doing the window displays ever since – I even just got back from a trip to Vancouver with her to open a new store for the brand.

I always knew that one day I would like to have my own business and with a combination of timing and courage I started Re: Creative. At the beginning I was working on store designs, window displays, interior styling projects and product styling and after a few years I added Real Estate Styling to my services and that is now my sole focus. A year ago I hired my first team member Jasmine who has been such an incredible addition. It’s been a wild ride and I love every minute of it!
1. A condo staging you’ve recently done had been featured on Breakfast Television, you go girl! How did it make you feel seeing your work on television and how has it impacted you to work on future projects?
Thanks to the Condo Chicks (those ladies rock!) our work appeared on Breakfast Television a few weeks back and it was very exciting to see! Any praise or recognition we receive for our work feels great and inspires us to always put forth our best work for every project we take on.
8. What do you like to do when you are not working your *500 yearly consultations and projects?
When you’re in a creative field and run a business it can be hard to shut your brain off and sometimes shutting it off is very necessary! A weekend escape with my boyfriend, going for a run or hike and spending time with family and friends is what I love most and is the best way for me to escape. Oh and a glass of wine or two always helps!
Thank you Renee for renting with us and answering our questions! We look forward to your upcoming stagings 🙂
