My name is Kiel Storms and I’ve had a passion for design for as long as I can remember. I’m the Designer with UPstaging, the BREL team’s staging company. As the Designer, I get to do what I love most: work with great people and create amazing spaces.
In between studying at McMaster University for Arts and George Brown College for Design, I travelled the world with my backpack, never missing an opportunity to take in local architecture and design along the way.
When I’m not perfecting homes to sell, I’m likely exploring the city on my bike or out ‘treasure hunting’ in vintage stores for furniture and frames. When in the city, nothing beats the junction, but the best treasures are often found near my family home in Prince Edward County. Nothing gets me more excited than finding a great deal on a piece you won’t find anywhere else.
I highly recommend working with Brendan Powell and the BREL team for all of your real estate needs! I had to sell my condo quickly as I had just purchased another home, and Brendan and his team were very reassuring and helpful in getting the condo ready to be listed in just 2 weeks! Special thanks to the staging team–Kiel and Jim–for making the condo look so amazing that family and friends who have seen my place many times were still amazed at how great it looked after the staging! Best of all, the condo sold in a day! And on the night that offers came in, Brendan was at his office Christmas party, but he still worked for hours throughout the night to negotiate the best deal for me. Now that is what I call dedication to customer service! It was a stressful evening, but Brendan navigated it expertly! Moreover, throughout the process, Brendan and the BREL team were helpful and so organized, from emailing paperwork to myself, my lawyer, and my bank; to sending me reminder emails re: buying and selling. I also appreciated that the office is paperless, which is easier for all parties and more environmentally friendly. Thanks again Brendan and the BREL team!
