“Our real estate broker recommended Lisa Dunefsky to assist in renovating and staging our Upper East Side co-op in preparation for sale. While we were initially anxious as we approached what seemed to be an overwhelming and expensive project, we could not have been happier with the results that Lisa and her team produced. Lisa led us through the entire process, from proposals to budgets, material selection to staging…Lisa planned all the renovations and then personally supervised the work of the contractor. We did not have the stress of overseeing the work ourselves, yet felt comfortable giving Lisa our feedback on certain decisions. Lisa made us feel extremely included throughout the whole process, sending us frequent updates and receiving our feedback and questions with professionalism…We were floored by the results and, within two weeks of launch to market, we had an accepted offer and several back-up offers. We could not have done this without Lisa.”

"I highly recommend Lisa Dunefsky and Dunefsky Design for property staging and interior design projects. Lisa has years of experience in both design and real estate marketing and really knows what to do to ensure that a property sells for the highest possible market value. With Lisa’s staging expertise, I was recently able to sell a condo on the Upper West Side for almost 10% above the asking price in about a week. Had I show the apartment empty (and not staged) it would have certainly sold for less."
-William Bolls, The Corcoran Group
"Lisa worked on staging my coop apartment for a sale. To begin with, Lisa was a pleasure to work with and accommodated my needs without compromising the project. She has exquisite design taste, is professional, courteous, responsive and was timely with my job under a tight time-frame. I highly recommend her."
-Cecilia V., Homeowner
Lisa recently staged two of my apartments that were listed for sale. She did a beautiful job and I’m certain that the staging was instrumental in the sale of both apartments. In one case we had a bidding war and the apartment sold quickly for more than 10% over the asking price. I am confident in Lisa’s abilities to create a beautiful look from “scratch” or to revitalize the appearance of a furnished space using a sharp sense of design and skillful placement of furniture. I recommend her without hesitation and will definitely engage her services in the future when I’m in need of expert staging!"
-Jennifer Wilson, Keller Williams
"We hired Lisa to stage our apartment in order to draw the most potential buyers and get the highest price. We didn't realize how significant the difference would make while we were living there and also when it came time to sell. There was a piece of furniture we asked Lisa to keep and work around, and she did a fabulous job making it look gorgeous in the living room. She was so fantastic we asked her to help us pick out colors for our kitchen remodel, paint colors for the apt and she even helped us with our master bathroom. She has a great eye which is evident in her beautiful work."
-Samantha L., Homeowner
“My apartment looks better than I ever could have imagined! Lisa really took the time to understand my style and was able to find pieces that really felt “like me”. She was able to use some of my existing furniture while incorporating some fresh new pieces to give my apartment the “pop” it was lacking. Lisa you truly have a knack, thanks again for making my apartment look so great.”
-Bailey D., Homeowner
"Lisa Dunefsky has not only the “eye” for design but the know how to work with a budget and come up with the best possible staging. She did two of my recent listings and people who walked in loved the interior. They were two very different apartments and she created the perfect individual look for each one. A two bedroom loft at 55 Liberty which went to contract in 5 days, modern with large windows, and a one bedroom pre-war at 124 West 93rd that had offers after the first showing. Buyers asked if the furniture was included. She’s the person you want to have on your team."
-Jackie Roth, Douglas Elliman
"I hired Lisa to help with design and material selection for my bathroom renovation. Lisa was absolutely terrific – very professional, extremely responsive and creative. She's got phenomenal taste and proposed ideas and solutions I wouldn't have thought of otherwise. Most importantly she was willing to work with me in a way that was very comfortable for me – I was nervous about bringing such a small project to an interior designer – but she was willing to consult with me as needed – which is exactly what I wanted. At the same time she brought creativity and energy to the project. She was very mindful of my budget, and proposed ways for me to save money along the way. Very professional. I would highly recommend her – can't say enough good things about her and can't wait to use her for my next project – the kitchen!"
-Michelle M., Homeowner
"Lisa was referred to me a few years back and like most I was skeptical of the need for design for my sale listings in Manhattan. Things have changed as I continue to be blown away by her work and would recommend her to all. Most recently I had a listing for a "For Sale by Owner" that I felt needed some staging. Lisa came to the rescue and dealt with my immediate time-frame. From start to finish she was a pleasure and exceeded all of my expectations. The result: the property sold for $90,000 above the asking price and set a record in the building!"
-Moshe Kanarfogel, The Modern Group
“I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job you did. It was like walking in to a different apartment. The place looked stunning. We received numerous compliments throughout the Open House. Thank you, Lisa. I look forward to working with you again.”
-Brian Kay, The Corcoran Group
“I was amazed at what Lisa was able to do with this 2 bedroom apartment. We started out with bright neon walls and after seeing the space, Lisa was able to create a beautiful, sleek design. She was able to incorporate some of the sellers own furniture to create a seamless, classic look. The seller was blown away as was I. Lisa was great to work with, easy going and personable. She was able to accommodate our very tight timeline. I look forward to working with her again.”
-Marlene Burns, Douglas Elliman
"Lisa was a such a pleasure to work with when my apartment needed home staging for selling. She understood how to compliment the existing details and set it up for mass appeal. Lisa has great resources, she is reliable, flexible and the job was completely all within budget. I look forward to working with Lisa again soon.”
-Nikki B., Homeowner
“Lisa was amazing to work with; she really listened to my needs and translated the space into something I never would have dreamed possible. She was pleasant to work with and very talented and responsible and responsive. I would highly recommend.”
-Jennifer K., Homeowner
“Finding an interior decorator is a lot like dating. You speak to a bunch of people and eventually decide to roll the dice and commit. You hope it works out because you are going to be working closely together for a while. I lucked out. Lisa was a perfect match for me and my project. She was very collaborative, but direct when she needed to be. Her instincts are great. She is very thorough and did a fantastic job keeping the project on budget so you don’t have to worry about any of the details. She is reliable, trustworthy and hard working. She cares about you and the project. My apartment looks great. We added a lot of personal touches and did so on a modest budget. In fact, Lisa finds every way she can to save you money so she more than pays for herself. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a highly collaborative and patient design partner!”
