Kiel Storms - Designer & Stager


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.

Halina and Stephen were so great throughout the whole selling process. Both were able to help tackle so many last-minute requirements that it alleviated the stress on our end. Kiel and his team did an amazing job staging the house, it was like a model home! I appreciated working with Halina and our transparency of what we wanted and what could be achieved helped made the selling process as efficient as possible. Definitely will work with Halina and recommend her and the BREL team for future opportunities again.

Nicole Harrington sold our townhouse so fast it made our head spin, and above asking. What a great agent and what a great team. Super responsive and always provided reliable and helpful information and advice. Kiel Storms, designer extraordinaire, and his team did an unbelievable job making our place look so great we almost changed our minds about selling it. Marketing and photography were top notch. Everything this agency does is thoughtful, beautiful and effective. Couldn’t be happier with the job they did.


Lisa Bednarski from the Brel team did an excellent job helping me sell my condo in North York. She was always available to answer any questions and paid attention to details. Basically, she came in with a team that looked at the place and recommended any renovation work to be done to get the place ready. She also brought in a staging team (Kiel) that did an amazing job. Next, she prepared all the marketing material and finally held multiple open houses. I was very happy with the end result. The place sold fast and well.
