I've been very happy working with Deb, who was recommended to me by a realtor when I asked her for someone who had helped with staging homes. I am a contractor rehabbing a house in a middle-class suburb, and needed someone who could give me good ideas about what would appeal to this market, but stay within very tight budget constraints. Deb did this all admirably-- she was responsive, conscientious and effective. She was comfortable with give-and-take discussing alternatives, and on the rare occasion when I did not go for her recommendations, I didn't encounter any friction. I expect I will be working with her on my next project.

Deb is very knowledgeable on all aspects of interior design. I wanted professional advice on rugs and fabric for an antique sofa in adjoining living spaces. She not only advised me about those items, but also a couple of quick, easy, and inexpensive touches that really gave the area some polish!

Debbie is fantastic!! She listened carefully to my wife and my ideas and then provided many possible options to accomplish what we both believe is our dream house. Her knowledge of interior design is fantastic. I like Her approach of tailoring solutions to our requests to our specific budget. It was such a pleasure to have Debbie provide the expertise that we both lack. We were so lucky and Blessed to have Debbie do our design and decorating work.
We would recommend Debbie to anyone who wants a GREAT designer. THANKS AGAIN DEBBIE

I highly recommend Debbie Roides as a Professional Stager of Real Estate Properties. I'm a Realtor and Associate Broker with RE/MAX First in Rochester, NY, and I have had the opportunity to utilize Debbie's experience, skills and insight as a Stager with various of my property listings. Her work has been valuable to both myself and my clients, and has been directly responsible for multiple purchase offers and sales. Your decision to work with Debbie will be richly rewarded.

“I've first hired Debbie to stage some of my problem listings. She was able to come in and quickly assess the situation, jump in and move furniture around and accessorize a room using items from the homeowner's current collection. It was painless, economical and made a dramatic improvement in the marketability of the property. Now I use Debbie to stage all my listings.” January 4, 2012

“Deb was an invaluable asset when I was remodeling my kitchen. We could not decide what to do with our trim to make it coordinate with everything else we had decided to do in the area. Deb showed up in a few minutes gave me her ideas. She was able to order samples and have them shipped directly to my home and the decision was made in no time. The kitchen looks great and the trim ties everything together.”

"Deborah is a joy to work with. She's professional while at the same time very personable. I've appreciated that she takes the client's budget into account when recommending changes to the room and doesn't try to coerce you to do something you aren't comfortable doing. The results have always been exactly what we'd hoped for in any project Deb has assisted us with!"

"We asked Deb to come in and redecorate our sanctuary/auditorium to give a warm welcoming feeling to it, like a Starbucks would have and she exceeded our wildest expectations. I would use her again in our next project and would recommend her without any concerns at all. She did a fantastic job!!!"
