What Others Are Saying

 When DesAnn came into my house I thought it looked well decorated and ready for sale.  She moved some furniture and removed some pieces from the room and I was amazed at how much more spacious and inviting the rooms looked when she was finished! B. Popa

Hi DesAnn,Thanks so much for all your time and hard work yesterday. It paid off for us because we got an offer last night!! It was well worth it because the offer was a pretty good one.  

Hope you have a great day! Thanks again! C. Canzurelo

"The family room looks great.  It works well whether we're watching the grandkids, hosting a party, or simply watching television.  DesAnn deftly incorporated hints of our family hobbies, heirlooms, and passions into the room.  The best part was coming home at the end of the day to an inviting and comfortable space that we could enjoy immediately.  What a super gift!"    The Mischalks

To answer to your question “the market has come back but not the prices. we are on pace to sell more homes than we have ever sold in the nearly 7 year history of our company. DesAnn is a BIG part of our success.  I am talking about projections of 20% more than last year's transaction number” ~~Mike DeAnna-Broker Ohio Family Realty

'DesAnn helps get homes sold!'

As a Real Estate agent, I need a professional home stager to prepare my listings. DesAnn comes in and gets the sellers to do everything! By the date of the 1st open house, the home looks like a model and is ready for a buyer to fall in love with it. Sellers that heed her advice sell their homes in no time at all! I highly recommend DesAnn whether you're getting your home ready to sell or simply wanting to live in stylish comfort! Thanks DesAnn.

"You are the best DesAnn.  That house was so Plain Jane when we took the listing.  Very nice, great features...just needed your touches.  You did them right.  We got a great price for the house, 3rd person who saw it, then a secondary offer with the 4 th buyer to view it and yesterday a 3rd person who wanted to write an offer.  Yup....the 5 person to see it.

We always tell sellers, we want to capture one of the 1st 6 people to view the home.  You did it...we got 3 out of 5.  WOW!"- Kim Kapustik, Keller Williams

Professional classes


I attended the Certified Staging Real Estate Association’s Three Day Certification Workshop designed and presented by DesAnn Collins of  “Design by DesAnn”. 

I was very impressed with the entire three day agenda, her warm reception, and with the marketing materials placed at each of our locations. These would easily rival the training materials presented at the Fortune 300 Company I was employed at for 23 years!  DesAnn is an excellent and effective communicator, but even more importantly, she presented in a very enthusiastic and confident manner.  She’s very focused, but still made time for all the questions and comments we had throughout the sessions.  DesAnn stayed on track and covered all the details necessary to complete the training

I felt very confident after spending three days with DesAnn that I had adequate training to begin my own business.  The teacher-student relationship didn’t end after the completion of the training program.  DesAnn still keeps me informed of the various associations I should affiliate myself with, as well as conversations to keep me on track.  She is so eager to share her ideas to make me successful.  DesAnn is still teaching me and I can’t seem to get enough of her excitement and the belief that staging is even more important now given the tough real estate market.  I refer to her marketing materials often as they are helpful to me with my own business.
