Client Testimonials

“Proof that staging sells: Before we staged this apartment, we had 75 buyers come through over 4 months and no offers. After studio D staged it, we found a buyer in less than 30 days.”

The Columbia Vitolo Team, The Corcoran Group

“I had never directly worked with studio D but was familiar with the company. After witnessing their work on 17 Cedar, I won’t hesitate to contact them again to stage our future listings. I was stunned and captivated by their level of design awareness, spatial recognition, and overall level of detail. The staging concept fit perfectly for this property and the custom vision that studio D implemented was the main catalyst for 17 Cedar’s success on the market.”

Alexander Narodny, Founder, Alexander Narodny - Alamere Real Estate

“studio D is simply our first choice in every staging opportunity. We love the precise eye of Florence, who lends a character to each home. The furniture and accessories are of great quality, artistic, and distinctive. Buyers come through and say, ‘Wow!, I love this house! Can I buy it all?’, Which is exactly what WE want. We believe the cost return is incredibly valuable. Thank you, studio D.”

Heidi Hjorth, Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty

“As a top producer, staging is paramount; I work in concert with studio D, to great success. Janci Deetz is my stager of choice! She listens to my needs, displays creativity, has an excellent eye for color & content, and is equally intuitive with space. She understands how to complement the architectural style of a property and is flexible… Together, we are able to work in concert… to the great satisfaction of my clients.”

Christian Downer, Compass

studio D has helped us transform many properties into showcases with their amazing design skills. They are professional, easy to work with, and very collaborative. Florence, our designer does an incredible job interacting with our clients and explaining our vision for the home. studio D knows how to embrace the fundamental characteristics of a home and enhance them with a sense of style and luxury that resonate with buyers.

Radhi Ahern, Outpost Real Estate

“Creativity and can-do spirit — coupled with a kind, smart and mindful team, are what make the very well-run studio D my go-to design squad for staging and decorating work. Always efficient and always effective, always a pleasure to work with, and always a home-run choice for my clients, studio D is the winsome choice in their crowded field — standing out for all the best reasons. My clients’ homes always get the most attention and better priced offers when studio D is at the design helm. From a mega-loft for $17M, to a sweet 2 bedroom for $2.5M, the environments created by studio D always deliver.”

Brian Lewis, Compass

“studio D was a treat to work with. They were responsible, responsive and, most importantly, provided a fantastic result — True professionals.”

Michael Kafka, Douglas Elliman

“Fantastic! We had an all cash offer within 4 days of our re-launch and I feel comfortable saying it was almost entirely due to the staging. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with studio D, and I look forward to working with them all again soon.”

Lauren Kelly , The Corcoran Group

“Janci, I just needed to tell you how extraordinary your staging turned out for this condo. I held open houses both Saturday and Sunday and the feedback was always the same – a big ‘WOW!’ I just had to personally thank you — again and again — for the amazing work that you do.”

Julia Bivins, Compass

“I was referred to studio D by a friend in the business and am so thrilled I had the opportunity to work with the entire studio D team. I was looking for someone who could show our higher-end luxury new development homes in their very best light. Gail, Florence, and their team staged two penthouse homes for us at our Elevant building in the Civic Center and two full-floor flats at our Noir building in Lower Pacific Heights. The results have been spectacular! The homes look so clean, inviting, and beautiful. The feedback we receive when prospects are touring is always positive. They selected the perfect furniture, artwork, and accessories to best display these homes. The whole process went seamlessly from the initial meeting to the installations and everything in between. The studio D team is creative, professional, and just a pleasure to work with. I cannot wait to collaborate with them again on another project.”

Wendy Novia, JS Sullivan Development

“studio D is one of my most trusted partners in marketing my listings. Florence has a superb eye for design, and her team executes flawlessly, on time, and with great results. We could not have been happier with this project, blending studio D’s furnishings with my client’s own pieces in this architectural home. Thank you for your team’s excellent work!”

Stephanie Lamarre, Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty
