Hi, I am Darlene Phillips, the Founder of Home Decorating Solutions.
From a very young age I was learning the tools of the trade!
My father did handyman jobs, after work and on weekends for people on our street that needed help , who couldn’t or didn’t know how to do it themselves and wanted someone they could trust. I would tag along with him and learned so much from being hands on, not just about the intricate work itself but also how to treat people. With my Father as our leader and teacher, my family built our own cottage from the ground up. It was a great learning experience and confidence builder from start to finish. I learned the value of a dollar and a hard days work. My siblings and I continue to utilize these skills today.
My passion for the home staging, decorating and real estate industries, my creative abilities and my desire to help people contribute to running a successful business. I have honed my skills and built my knowledge through extensive training in a variety of disciplines and hands on experience.
One of the things I am most proud of was being nominated to attend and being a graduate of, The Judy Project: An Enlightened Leadership Forum for Executive Women, Joseph L. Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. “The University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management is working to develop the next generation of female CEOs through its participation in the Judy Project, a leadership forum for executive women established in memory of the late Microsoft Canada Co. executive Judy Elder.”
Having a diverse background has facilitated the successful development of my own business, Home Decorating Solutions, as has my hands-on experience in preparing homes for sale and interior decorating.
My professional experience also includes Corporate Sr. Executive Management, direct sales, team development , Retail Operations, Merchandising and Information Technology. My leadership skills, energy level and can-do attitude allow me to excel in this fast paced and competitive market.
One of my biggest strengths is multi-tasking, juggling a hundred details at once; my fabulous professionally trained team and I can effectively and efficiently provide excellent results under tight timelines. I will ensure all the details of preparing and/or decorating your home to sell or to live in are handled timely and professionally. You have my word! “
