Kiel Storms - 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.


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.

I met Lisa while I was interviewing agents and while all the agents we met were experienced and knowledgeable, it was after talking with her that I also felt a sense of reassurance. My parents were selling our family property that we had lived in for over 30 years and Lisa was able to navigate our situation like a true professional. She immediately understood the charms of our property, our priorities and handled every curveball that arose in the process, and she was always positive, responsive and effective. After our experience with her, we have come to know that there isn’t anything she and the BREL team can’t handle. She works incredibly hard and she does an amazing job coming through for her clients. Our property sold within 72 hours of being listed and the selling experience was much less stressful with her on our side. She is so personable and in command that you will wish you had your very own “Lisa” in your life! We don’t have a single regret of choosing Lisa and the BREL team. Speaking of the BREL team, Kiel and Zun were amazing to work with. Kiel’s staging was absolutely gorgeous and publication-worthy. He definitely isn’t afraid to elevate a house to a dream home. Thank you Kiel for doing such an amazing job for us! And our family is eternally grateful for Lisa!

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!
