Meeting James and Monique from Unique Property Sales has changed our lives. Having found our dream forever home, we needed to sell our place quickly, and Unique Property Sales was up to the task. Communication was clear and always honest from the very start. It felt reassuring to speak to a dynamic couple that could take care of all the hard work and get our house sold in this crazy market. Extremely hard working and always willing to please us, within a short time our home was staged by Monique, and it looked amazing (we didn't want to move!). Our property sold for the maximum price in today's market, and we actually felt relieved that finally our real estate choices had paid off (last time we bought/sold was during the GFC). I can't recommend this real estate duo highly enough - we are now looking forward to moving into our dream home and at the same time, our home has become someone else's dream come true!property perfectly but she is genuinely friendly and makes the process so easy.

Having seen Monique stage a few other properties when we were looking to buy a home, we knew we needed her help to stage our property when it was time to sell. Our property went from being a vacant echoey boring drab home to something incredible. Something we wanted to live in again.
The contract was signed within 4 days of listing, and after only one open home. Monique's talent, style, and attention to detail is impeccable. Not only can Monique style a property perfectly but she is genuinely friendly and makes the process so easy.
If you are going to sell, we recommend you stage your property. If you stage your property, we highly recommend you use Monique.property perfectly but she is genuinely friendly and makes the process so easy.

Even before placing this tired property in Monique's capable hands to sell, obligation free, she made suggestions as to what improvements would make the property saleable (including a neutral colour to use for the internal repaint), as well as what was not necessary to spend money on. Simple! And then she topped it all off by staging the house with furniture and inspired touches that just made the whole house sing! It was so fresh and inviting, buyers could not help but be impressed. Monique was very knowledgeable about the Cairns/Edmonton area, and took the time to help us work out what price to go to market at, and the reasons why. Due to COVID restrictions we were unable to have an open house, however, this did not deter her. She arranged numerous individual inspections with the result that we received 2 offers in the first week. The offers were presented to us in a professional manner without any pressure on us to make a decision. Monique has a lovely calm approach to everything, which put us at ease. I am sure she had the same effect upon potential buyers as well. I cannot recommend Monique highly enough if you want to sell. And trust me..... her property staging DOES make a difference.

Monique was extremely adaptable, supportive and flexible when negotiating our purchase during difficult financial times. I believe she went 'above and beyond' to ensure a successful outcome for all parties. She was lovely to work with.
S. Turner (buyer) - Manoora
Exceptional service and people skills allowing everyone in the process of buying and selling to win from the engagement and extra effort that Monique puts in 7 days a week to ensure all her clients are completely informed and making quality decision.
Urban Properties (vendor) – Edge Court, Manoora
Monique could not have been more helpful or professional. She was able to answer any and all questions about the property for sale, and calmly guided me through the offer and contract process. She worked tirelessly with all parties, staying in constant contact, without applying any pressure. An absolute pleasure to deal with.
J. Pennisi (Vendor) – Manoora
Monique is very professional and hardworking. She goes the extra mile to get your house sold and for the right price.

“When we decided to sell our Real Estate Agent recommended we have our home professionally staged with Unique Staging and we are so glad we took her advice. Monique and her team were professional from beginning to end. The result was beautiful, highlighting all the best features of our home which we have no doubt helped sell it quickly and at a higher price than we expected. At every open home people commented on the beautiful styling and the new homeowner even asked if he could buy the furniture. I have no hesitation recommending Unique Staging to anyone selling their home.”
K & G Knott - Kewarra Beach
“Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with staging the property at Mount Sheridan, as well as arranging the Open House. After having the property listed with another company for quite a few months, with no result, it was amazing to us to have received an offer the first day of being listed with you. The staging you did was incredible, and obviously had a big part in assisting with the sale so quickly. Again, thank you so much for all you did”
Noela & D Fuller - Mount Sheridan
Absolute MAGIC! The day I met Monique was MY lucky day!
I met Monique when she was the selling agent for a house I wanted to purchase. She was so lovely, with a great knowledge of the property.
However, the purchase was dependent on my selling my own house. So, where do you start when looking for an agent? Monique was right there. Lucky for her, you might say. Nope, lucky for ME.
I hadn't sold a property in 10 years, so she guided me through the whole process. She was very knowledgeable about the Edmonton area and provided me with an appraisal that included market and sale comparisons. Her suggested sale price was exactly what I had in mind, so I knew she wasn't trying to sell me short.
Monique suggested that she STAGE my property - bring in furniture and stuff to jazz the place up. Now, we all think that our houses present pretty well don't we. You know, we have nice furniture and nick knacks and our friends like our place. Think again.
As soon as Monique walked in I saw her face light up and I could see she had a vision of how it should look - not to me as my home, but to potential buyers and what it could be for them. I can only tell you that she is a magician when it comes to this stuff. (And so is her photographer.)
When I posted the link to my real estate ad on my facebook page, the reaction from everyone was "that's not your house". Even I didn't recognize it.
The ad went up on Tuesday, with an open house scheduled for Saturday. Well, why wait that long? People wanted to see it straight away. So come and see it they did. With individual viewings and the open house there were 13 groups through in 4 days. Oh, and did I mention 3 offers? SOLD!
To sum it up, Monique has a system and it WORKS!
Spending a little extra for a better spot on realestate.com.au, professional photos and Unique Property Staging worked for me.
Luv your work! J. Pennisi (vendor) Edmonton
Monique did a fantastic job in staging our property that is currently on the market, she listened to our brief and staged the property to an excellent level, certainly adding thousands of dollars to the value. Monique went above and beyond. Certainly recommended.
Dave Johnston (vendor) - Trinity Park
Monique was such a pleasure to work with. She was focused, energetic and full of marketing/presentation ideas. She sold the property quickly for more than I expected and was a pleasure to deal with, throughout the whole process. Monique conducts herself, with the highest integrity.
Lorraine (vendor) – Bayview Heights
Monique went above and beyond to get my property sold assisting with all elements even when it was a challenging situation for a property to be sold. Absolute fantastic personal skills as well.
B. Dutton (vendor) – Bentley Park
Stuart and Monique did a great job selling my property! The proof is in the fact that it was only on the market for a week! It is definitely worth spending the little extra for the staging! Monique did a superb job presenting the place! Would have no problem recommending this very professional team!
N. Bout (vendor) – Edmonton
Buying our first house I was unsure about the whole process and who I could trust. Monique was completely not what I expected from a real estate agent. She was down-to-earth, relatable and an all round pleasure to deal with. Throughout the contract, she shared with us her own personal experience about different ways to make the process smoother, i.e. who she believed were the top few conveyancers/building inspectors in Cairns... but we could tell that she had no hidden motives on who we chose. Monique even helped us after the sale was completed, i.e. recommending different specialists to help fix odd jobs around the house. The best part about Monique was that I never felt there were any lies or half-truths to anything she said, rather she always just wanted to be direct with us both at all times. This made it easy for my partner and I to feel like we were making the right decisions. Everyone I've spoken to in the past has told me how stressful buying/selling property is but that just wasn't my experience at all thanks to Monique. Highly recommended A++
Steve Darcie (buyer) – Mount Sheridan
Very professional and proactive. Guided and advised us on every step.
Monique stayed in communication with us at all times. We always knew what was happening. She focused on the sale of our house and pushed for the best sale price possible.
Staging and styling is a great idea and Monique does this very well.
I happily recommend Monique and would gladly use her again.
Michael and Diana (vendor) – Edmonton
Monique was honest but very receptive to our wishes. She worked hard for us to ensure we achieved our best. We were very appreciative of the extra efforts that were not any trouble for her to take care of.
Renee and Dean H (vendor) - Whitfield
“My husband and I recently renovated a unit. Prior to putting in on the market we contacted Monique and arranged a consultation. From start to finish the process was made so easy by herself and her team. We went from having an empty unit with no emotional connection and desperately wanting to sell. To falling so in love with the finished product we toyed about keeping it for our retirement. We had 10 groups of buyers at our first Open Home, each and every person commented on the incredible job the stagers had done. We sold for over asking price and had countless offers that were beyond expectations. I can honestly say we couldn’t have achieved this without the assistance of Unique Property Staging. Never under estimate the emotional connection furniture creates when a buyer walks into your home!”
N. Craike - Cairns City
“6 out of 5 stars to this amazing woman with such talent and attention to detail! We had previously had our house on the market twice through different agents and barely had any interest. Signed up with Monique Odmark as our agent and she styled our home. On the first viewing not only did we have a heap of interested buyers looking and one that nearly bought it but it was under contract within 3 weeks!!! She’s a legend and this would not have happened without her!! Highly recommend Monique to style and sell your home, call her ASAP”
J. Rookas - Edmonton
“Word of mouth got me to Monique from Unique Property Staging when we decided to sell our home. Monique was respectful, thorough and most importantly confident. She took all the guess work out of it. Our house was sold after the first open home and comments were that the staging gave the buyers options & ideas. Monique took our home & made it someone else’s”.
Sue Schwartz - Edmonton
“We have staged several properties with Unique Property Staging and found them to be very professional and affordable. With help from Monique’s attention to detail and professionalism we were able to sell our last speck home in 3 days. I cannot recommend this business more if you are trying to sell a house, 5 stars”
Adrian Manning - Manning Builders
"When my Real Estate agent mentioned "staging" I thought no way, but after discussions I realised I needed to get some advice as my house was lacking in the wow factor. I never believed in staging, but after meeting Monique and James I certainly changed my mind, they sold me a product I never thought I would buy.
Through their eyes, their vision and their passion I knew I had to stage my home and I am so thankful I did. A nice roomy home with daggy old outdated furniture was transformed into something worthy of a magazine shoot.
Just stunning, it brought me to tears. Monique has the most amazing ability to transform a plain home into something very special. After 6 days on the market, 1 open house and 3 initial offers a contract was signed. The presentation on open day was magnificent and well received by 8 couples. I sold for more than even the agent thought I would get. I cant thank Unique Styling enough I would recommend Monique in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for all that you did."
W. Lenehan - Brinsmead
Monique’s first staging job was for a property in Mount Sheridan. This house had been on the market for 12 months with one dismal low offer. After completely refreshing the furniture and décor and relaunching the house with new photography the property sold within 7 days, cash unconditional, at a price $35,000 more than the original offer.
