Hear what our clients have to say about our home staging and other services

“Talented with amazing creativity, while providing excellent value, is the best way to describe Diane DiSanto from Design To The Nines. I have been involved in numerous projects with Diane, including new construction and rehabs.

I had a rehab in Salem, MA—a very challenging historical home project. Like all my ventures, I thought the quality and appearance of the home was great and it would sell quickly, but that turned out not to be the case. After months on the market and several failed open houses, I finally engaged Diane’s services.

Right away, I liked her approach and style. She works with you in a way that makes you feel good about your work. She immediately identified the problem no one else could seem to see. I did a redesign on the kitchen as she outlined. It was a tough home to furnish and decorate, but Diane saw the potential, recommended staging the home and creatively turned a living room into a bedroom. The house showed infinitely better staged, and it sold the next week!

I have also just recently hired Diane on a project in Winchester, and from now on, before starting any new project, I will engage her services. By hiring Diane, I will avoid costly mistakes—it’s money well spent. I highly recommend Diane.”

“Diane helped us stage our home for sale this summer, and we couldn’t have been more pleased.

I was amazed at how quickly she was able to evaluate and execute her work, making the smallest yet most important of tweaks to ensure our home looked its best for interested buyers.

She effortlessly worked around our very busy family schedule to get it done. We were on the market for barely two weeks before we had several offers to buy our home. Diane is a true gift—we couldn’t have sold our home without her!”

“As a real estate agent, I have worked with Diane on both the buying and selling sides of transactions.

Her home staging incorporates modern colors that appeal to buyers. She has a gift for furniture layouts that highlight the best features of a home. With a large collection of furniture and accessories in her collection, Diane’s designs make every room ‘pop’ in those all-important online photos.

When buyers are searching for a new home, they want to envision their life there, and Diane’s staging shows them just how comfortable, stylish and functional their life can be! I truly believe Diane’s services help my sellers maximize their sale prices, too. When I list a property and call Diane to help, it’s a rare home that can’t benefit from her professional eye.”

J. Barrett, Ipswich, MA

“It was a pleasure working with Diane…Our house was previously on the market longer than I expected, and my husband had already relocated to start his new job. Diane made a number of suggestions about things we could do to improve the presentation of our home and then implemented all the ideas I chose with promptness and professionalism. She recommended ways to enhance our house that were extremely cost-effective. She is very skilled at recognizing what will make a strong impression.

After she staged our home, we had an open house. We sold to a family who attended the very first open house so it was clear that her work was an essential element in getting our house sold.”

“Design To The Nines was exactly what I needed to sell my new construction home. As a builder, I like to control costs and get value when I do spend money. Diane put together a great package for me and handled all of the details. She was terrific to work with! The artistic focus of design and design materials were beautiful. It really showed the property in its best light and helped me out of a tough market.”
