10 seconds – that’s all you have to impress a prospective buyer or renter.

Is your home’s first impression a great one?

Welcome to Designed to Appeal, LLC

Beginning with curb appeal and throughout every room, our home staging services will transform a property from New York City to the Hamptons into a home that buyers or renters will fall in love with and aspire to the lifestyle it portrays. We strive to get you top dollar with less time on the market. Designed to Appeal’s home staging expertise will emphasize the best features of a house or apartment while improving or downplaying the less marketable features. We can just make recommendations, or take the stress and worry out of it by doing some or all of it for you under tight deadlines. Designed to Appeal has staged both vacant and owner-occupied properties ranging in price from a $300,000 studio apartment to a $14 million private townhouse. See the Services tab for a complete listing of our staging and other services.

Clients Speak:

“I just finally got over to the apartment to see your handiwork. It looks stunning!!! My wife and I both said that there are many design choices you made that we wish we had thought of during the 13 years we lived there.”

Greg G., Homeowner, New York, NY

“Donna Dazzo brings a professional confidence and know-how to her work that really is helpful in that uncertain moment prior to staging. And her design work is stellar.”

The Dybec Team, Douglas Elliman, New York, NY

“Donna and her team did an outstanding job with the transformation of this estate-like-condition one-bedroom for sale listing in a desirable post-war co-op. They proved themselves once again, and the process of preparing the apartment for sale was seamless.”

George Matthews, Compass, New York, NY

“Donna knew exactly how to make the apartment feel like a true home that would appeal to buyers, and therefore we put it in contract in less than a month.”

Eli Osodoba, Meier International Real Estate, New York, NY
