Your Last Resort: Helping you Turn your Home into a Resort

Valley homes are about to get a lot more organized thanks to a team of three women in Kentville who have recently launched Your Last Resort Home Organization and Staging.

Laura Churchill Duke, Jennifer Williams Saklofske, and Raina Noel came together earlier this summer to help a mutual friend, a busy full-time working mom of little children, organize her home as a birthday present. After the day’s work, the three friends realized the impact they had made, and also how much they liked working together.

According to Churchill Duke, this was the catalyst that set the plan in motion as they decided to take the show on the road,  and Your Last Resort was born. “The idea is to help other people declutter and organize their homes, giving them a fresh new look, especially when they feel they are at their wit’s end, or last resort,” she says.

“We are all busy working mothers and time has become our most precious commodity,” says Williams Saklofske. “Time for family, career, home, friends, and ourselves often leaves us feeling like we are playing a daily game of Tetris – trying to make room for everything and often feeling like we never do.”

Your Last Resort offers three different packages, for either a half or full day. The first is seasonal staging:

With all the things you have to do to get ready for the holidays, decorating the house can be low on your priority list. Or, perhaps you don’t enjoy decorating, can physically no longer decorate, or are looking for some fresh ideas. The team will come in and decorate your house, using your own possessions, for Christmas, harvest time, or any other special occasions.

The sort package helps people declutter an area of their home that might be out of control and perhaps causing general anxiety. This package is also great for those who are moving and want to downsize beforehand.

Finally, the sort and stage package is the most popular concept. If people are at a loss for how to decorate their homes, or want a new look, the Your Last Resort team will come in and restage your house, using your own possessions, and decluttering during the process. This is particular helpful when preparing to sell your house.

All packages come with a free consultation, full confidentiality, and ensure you have full ownership over any decisions about what to keep and what to toss.

“I was not overwhelmed with decisions,” says Sharon Churchill Roe of Hantsport, who had her house sorted and staged. “The reason I had done nothing in my home was that I had no idea what to do. It was so nice to have someone who knew what they were doing come in and make the decisions.”

Your Last Resort covers from Berwick to Hantsport, but is also wiling to travel to help those in need. For more information, visit or find them on Facebook.
