Our Mission

We are passionate about empowering individuals to take their own step towards making their next dream home a reality.

Maryna King

OWNER

The owner Maryna King of Ustage, grew up renovating with her family and managed her own property staging company for the past 4 years.

 

Maryna has had numerous requests and helped so many people make delightful improvements to their properties. However, the time consuming inconvenience of sourcing the appropriate light fitting, cupboard door handles or an excursion to suppliers, to ensure the paint colour worked with the carpets, lead to her innovative new business concept, devised to change her environment and deliver a more suitable, affordable and faster service.

As an avant-garde interior designer, she came up with a DIY solution which gives her clients a complete DIY Guide on how to manage and execute every process in the Guide to cost effectively transform their homes, complete with DIY tutorial videos, illustrations, mood boards and where to purchase the suggested items from reputable retailers.

 

Over a long period of time, Maryna and her brother, Andre the IT Guru, developed software to create a customized DIY Guide that is as unique to every property, as finger prints are to every person.

Roz Potgieter

SALES MANAGER

Roz has over 25 years’ experience in Management, Sales and Marketing, having worked in multicultural, multilingual teams across a wide range of companies and organisations in South Africa, the Middle East and Australia.

After working in the property staging industry for a while, Maryna approached Roz to market her new innovative business Ustage. Roz was blown away by this exceptional concept, which she believes in and is passionate about. She has confidence in this brand which is likely to knock the socks off the Real Estate companies and home owners throughout the Greater Brisbane area and change a sellers notion of selling, from a nightmare into a dream!
