I feel like I have led (and continue to lead) a very full, happy, busy life – and I absolutely love it.
I met my husband, Sebastian when I was just a teenager and we have been married for nineteen years. Together, we have two teenage children, Kyla and Jacob. My dream growing up as a little girl had always been to have a family, and I couldn’t feel anymore grateful that I was not only able to get married and have kids so young but that we are all as close as we are. I am truly blessed and my heart is full.
Throughout my life, I’ve had the opportunity to pursue many of my passions including my first career as a Hairstylist where my work was featured on TV and in Wedding Bells magazine. In my position as a senior stylist, I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to speak as an educator on stage at several large industry events. My experience in that fast paced, every evolving industry has proved to be very beneficial to my daughter who also has a keen interest in hair design and is eager to start her career in just a few short months.
Along my journey, I became vegetarian and competed in a few Fitness competitions where I qualified for Nationals. This type of dedication provided me with a different appreciation for discipline, discipline that ultimately could be applied to other areas of both my personal and professional life.
I become an assistant for Dale Carnegie business training. My husband and I attended several Tony Robbins events for both personal growth and business growth. I’ve also had the immense privilege of actually being up on stage with Tony Robbins himself (it was seriously amazing)! Throughout the years, I have met some amazing celebrities such as Scott McGillivray and Julianne Hough.
My husband and I purchased our first house when I was twenty years old. After selling our second home we both decided that we had a passion for real estate and were going to pursue that career.
In 2003, my husband obtained his real estate license and 6 months later I obtained mine. Working with one’s husband and growing a business can often blur the lines so to speak but thankfully, we figured out a way for us both to not only work together happily, but focus our business in the areas that we love.
For me that meant I could work with buyers, which is something I absolutely love doing. I get immense enjoyment walking through homes with buyers and helping them to see the potential within a space. The same personal level of satisfaction can be garnered by helping sellers with Staging. The results of my staging was what was leading clients to ask me to come help them with their new homes. Clients were returning to seek guidance when it came to everything from to picking paint colours, arranging decorative items and furniture, to prioritizing with them projects and upgrades they should focus on. Clients recognized the importance of not only creating a beautiful home, but learned how to increase their value of their home while doing it.
In 2014, I had major surgery and donated approximately 66% of my liver to save my best friend Sarah’s life. Going through such an impactful event with an extremely long recovery time encouraged me to re-evaluate what I wanted for my life. I decided to focus on doing more of what I loved in life both in business (pursuing my interior design diploma) and my personal life and truly cherishing every moment and opportunity that is presented. Sarah and I currently have the honour of speaking at numerous events to raise both awareness and funding for the Transplant foundation.
In early 2016 after lots and lots of hard work I received my Diploma in Interior Design and have added an extra layer of service to assist the clients of The Burlington Homes Team not only before they sell but after they move into their new home. After receiving several inquiries, I have decided to open up select services to the general public to help Maximize the value of their home by creating the high-end designer look without the high-end designer price tag.
“Maximize the value of your home by creating the high end designer look without the high end designer price tag”
One of my philosophies is “buy less, choose well”, and I incorporate this into the spaces I create.
With over fourteen years of Real Estate experience on my resume, I have first hand experience and knowledge in what details go into a home that can net the most amount of money and what people are attracted to in a home. In an industry where first impressions can make or break your investment, it’s imperative to recognize the importance of how something so simple like choosing certain colours, finishes and materials can each have a different impact on your bottom line and overall aesthetic. As a successful Real Estate buyers agent, and certified interior decorator, I believe in creating a timeless “wow factor” in a home on any budget by doing smart improvements that will increase the home’s value while creating a beautiful space.
AMI, Alita Malinowski Interiors, was created in our real estate office after realizing the necessity for it. Financial planners exist to assist you with maximizing your finances and after seeing homeowners put their money in the wrong places, where their largest asset was not maximized, we realized that we need to create a way to show homeowners how to create a beautiful show stopper home they love, all the while choosing well to keep their asset maximized. After being in hundreds of homes over the past fourteen years, my attention for detail can determine what people gravitate to and are attracted to in a home. My fresh timeless approach to Interior Decor and Design, combined with my passion for people to love their home and maximizing their homes value, makes me a trusted resource.
People are no longer staying in their homes for long periods of times. With that in mind, while you are living in your home, much like a financial planner will move your investments to help you make more money. I will help you enjoy your home while doing smart renovations so when it is time to either move, or refinance to either allow you to purchase another home….etc (so when you need access to your money or equity). Just because you are not yet living in your dream home and are in your starter home, does not mean you should neglect upgrading your home and miss out on the potential to maximize your profits so you can have access to more money when you sell for their dream home.
Alita Malinowski Interiors is a division of the Burlington Homes Team specializing in Interior decorating and home staging.
I am combining my real estate career with my interior design diploma. I know what buyers look for, notice and demand in a home at every price point as well as what homes actually get top dollar. You want to maximize your home, not over improve it but create a stunning space that will stand the test of time. After living in 8 homes over 18 years I have learned the secrets to maximizing your homes value. I created a system for decorating and planning renovations for each room. My desire is for people to love their home while they are living in it and to enjoy their investment while maximizing the return for when they eventually need it. My motto is “decor and design with the bottom line in mind”.
