Before listing our home to sell, I contacted Debbie to assist with staging and organizing. She was always on time, friendly, attentive, and easy to work with. After her help, our house was on the market for about 3 weeks before we received an offer and ultimately sold. I believe she played a large roll in the quick sale.
I don’t know how else to say this, other than Debbie just has a knack for design. She was able to come in and work with my existing decor, no expensive purchases necessary. The changes she made seemed small, but really made a positive impact to the look and feel of our home. My husband and I thought to ourselves- ‘why didn’t we ever think of that?’ She basically made our stuff look better. So much so, that we will be taking her ideas and applying them in our new home.
Debbie also helped me to organize my pantry, linen closets, laundry room, and bathroom closet. Honestly, I never considered organizing my closets before listing our home. I thought if the door was shut, no one would notice the mess inside. But the truth is, perspective buyers do look in closets and pantries.
Debbie gave me quick tips and tricks that were easy to implement and made a huge difference. She also took on the task of my kitchen pantry and bathroom closet by herself. She worked on the complete disaster in my bathroom, sorted it and organized it in less than an hour. I was dreading this task, and she easily saved me hours!
I was so impressed by Debbie that I will most definitely use her services again.

I had an amazing experience with Ashley. My goal was to update my living room, entry way and home office. What she created absolutely blew me away…I never thought my home could look like what you see on houzz or in magazines, but it does. What impressed me most is her ability to easily capture what I liked and take them to the “professional design level” with an amazing eye for class and style in just a couple weeks. From large furniture selection to lighting, from paint to the little accessories: she nailed it all. And she even was able to incorporate all the favorite items I already owned into my rooms. Plus, I’m sure I wasn’t easy to work with since I was a little nervous about letting go, but she proved to me that design is best left to the pros (and she is certainly that)! Now on to the next part of my home! I highly recommend Ashley to all!

Debbie was a pleasure to work with!! I love that she was considerate of my budget when designing my room. Her unique ideas gave the room a creative twist that didn’t break the bank! I will be sure to tell all of my friends!
~ Jennie O., Designing to DWELL Client 2013
I just wanted to say thank you. You’re designers were awesome…and I can’t wait to have them out again. We talked about some projects that I need to finish out before they can complete the look I’m going for. Meanwhile my place looks great…. I’ve been telling everyone about your company.

We know it has been a while and I’m not sure if you are aware of it but we sold our house after one day of showing it! Sure enough the market conditions are in our favor but without a doubt the work that your designers did for us was a major factor in this sale. We wanted to thank both of them very much. They were professional, pleasant, very nice and they turned our house into a model home! Their staging were simple yet elegant and vivid,and we have received many compliments of the way it looks. We’re now in the process of purchasing our next home and we would very much like to have both of them help us arrange it when we move in! Thanks again!

The Michelle Lynne Team was fantastic! They did an initial consultation to identify how to arrange the rooms. The team arrived with perfect staging furniture and accessories and rocked it out in under 3 hours! We truly appreciate their professionalism, keen eye for design and sense of fun. We highly recommend them for home staging, either if you are selling your house or if you want to live in a fresh, inspiring environment.
— Lauren M .- 2013 – Real Estate Staging Client, Plano, TX
Just wanted to let you know that I received 2 full-price offers on Laurel Valley after only 2 days on the market, and 2 other verbal offers with lots of other serious inquiries. We now have an executed contract! Lots of people came to the open house on Sunday and complimented the way it looked over and over again. I have no doubt in my mind that your gorgeous staging contributed tremendously to the sale of the property so quickly – it helped me created great photos to post on-line and then made the space show so beautifully! Great teamwork and I sincerely hope we can work together again soon!

Michelle Lynne and her team are truly a pleasure to work with. To better serve my clients I utilize Michelle’s staging expertise as an integral part of my listing service. Michelle knows how to bring out the best in every home creating the most marketable position for my listings allowing me the best opportunity to secure the highest achievable price while minimizing days on market for my clients. Michelle Lynne and her team are professional, courteous and very good at what they do.
— Kyle Brinkley – 2011 – Principal / Broker, Brinkley Property Group, Dallas, TX
Michelle is both warm and professional. In staging a home, she takes the time to understand your situation and your needs, and then she provides a list of reasonable suggestions, prioritizing them so that you can be sure to do the most important ones. The results were wonderful, and helped me to receive several offers on my home in the first weeks after it went on the market.
— Myra – 2011 – Real Estate Staging Client – Richardson, TX
We hired Michelle to help us with our most recent move. With both of us working full-time, a toddler, and a narrow window to get moved in, I’m certain we couldn’t have done it without her! In fact, it was our easiest move to date. She did everything from help choose paint colors to coordinate where furniture would go: each room had a floor-plan posted on the wall so the movers knew exactly where to put everything. Michelle and her assistant rallied in the heat to organize and unpack the kitchen!! The finished product was amazing; a lovely, organized, styled home within two days! Michelle is great to work with, so fun, energetic and enthusiastic about design. She has great instincts but also encouraged our input and style, taking into account exactly how we live. I think of her every morning as I grab my coffee from a perfectly organized ‘coffee station’ tucked away in the kitchen. I look forward to working with her again and again!
— Jill & Bryan – 2011 – Move In & ReDesign Client – Highland Park, TX
As a Real Estate Developer, we only deal with experts in their respective fields, and demand integrity and creativity within our approach to completing projects with a perfect balance of Aesthetics, Economics, and Market Appeal. Michelle Lynne fills that bill very well and she has a passion for what she does…and it shows.

I had Michelle help me organize the library shelves in my master bedroom. We had had them for quite a few years and tried numerous times to put them together so that they would be an asset to the room instead of an eyesore! Michelle was able to take a look at the various items that I had and was able to pull together a master plan on how to achieve a look that was easily attained and pleasing to look at day-to-day. The whole process only took a short time!
With some simple instructions and some straight forward advice my bookshelves came together. She had so many creative ways to show off some of my most treasured items and offered me a variety of options to suit my preferences and style. Now my over crowded bookshelves are organized and you can actually see all of my special items displayed within the various nooks and crannies. It’s amazing!
I have been thrilled with the results and will definitely utilize her services again the next time I find myself with a decorating project where I need some up-to-date and creative direction.
— Shannon S. – 2009 – Home Staging Client – Richardson, TX
Michelle is a terrific home stager and designer whom I have had the pleasure of working with on several staging jobs. She has tremendous attention to details and has helped several of my clients in staging their homes for sale. Our last staging job resulted in the house selling to the very first buyer who saw it! Needless to say my clients were very ecstatic with the results and Michelle made me look like a hero to them! I highly recommend her and her staff to my clients when I am meeting with them to list their home. I personally don’t sell any of my own homes without the services of a professional home stager and Michelle is one of the best that I have seen!
— James Sharp, Realtor at Ebby Halliday Realtors, 2010- Real Estate Staging Client – Plano,TX
We hired Michelle to help stage our home for a quick sale so we could begin our new life in Florida. Our 1st walk through helped us understand that Michelle was very interested in our needs and expectations in selling our home. She gained a complete understanding of our expectations then went to work. She was able to utilize our existing home and furniture, candidly share how to change certain features and rooms, and incorporated her talent to solve the remaining pieces that tied everything together. She was sensitive to all our needs; including time and money. Our home sold in (1) day!
Michelle exceeded my expectations in every way. She was innovative, always on time, and very professional. We are going to use her remotely when we buy our new home in Florida!
— Dave and Carol July – 2010 – DFW Real Estate Home Staging – Richardson, TX
I hired Michelle to help me decorate my large empty great room. From the minute she walked in the door she was on a mission. I liked how she took furniture, wall hangings and nicknacks that I already owned and found better places for them. Then most helpful of all, she told me what I needed to buy to fill in the blanks, from the size of couch, shapes of tables, mirrors, rugs, plants, etc. Soon after, I had ladies over from work who made the comment that my house looked like it came out of a magazine.
Great work, Michelle, my house is finally a home!
— Tamara M.- 2010 – Home Staging to Live Client- Dallas,TX
I hired Michelle to help me stage my home so that I could put it on the market with hopes for a quick sale. We met to walk through my house and her ideas started flowing immediately. She shared her thoughts and ideas without insulting any of the furniture I have or the way my home looked when she first walked in. Michelle exceeded my expectations and I wish I had hired her when I first moved in!
I am now working with her for my new home. Michelle is always thinking of what I want or what I like, as well as functionality. If she is out running errands or shopping and sees something that would be good for me, then she takes a picture and emails it or texts it to me right then to get my opinion. I never feel pressured to make decisions or spend money with Michelle. I am very happy that I found her.
— Elizabeth N.- 2010 – Real Estate Staging and Interior Design Client – Highland Park, TX
I didn’t know what to expect when I asked for Michelle’s help in reorganizing & redesigning my condo. She came in and did so much more than I could have done on my own or even imagined could be done in my home. She used all my current belongings and made them look new and fresh, without making it look cluttered. She also made suggestions without pressuring me…and she is so much fun and personable, it was like working with family! Michelle made me fall in love with my home all over again. Ii always look forward to coming home now, thanks to Michelle!
— Becky S. – 2009 – Condo Staging Client – Dallas, TX
Our master bedroom & bathroom were so plain & uninspired until we called Michelle. She made the process simple, painless, and most of all…she has made our renovation incredibly fun and exciting to complete!
After a quick walkthrough, we sat down and discussed all the details. She took our taste & personality into account, along with our current designs in other rooms, and put together a reference guide for our design. The customized design was just awesome, and we were amazed to see just how flexible it was! This “road map” was completely tailored to us…and met every expectation. There’s so many different options to choose from and never limited us to a set design – which is just what we asked for.
Michelle is gifted & amazing to work with. She takes a realistic approach to design and was able to deliver amazing results within a budget. Michelle taught us that we don’t have to spend big design dollars to get big design results! She exceeded our expectations in every way & delivers amazing results!
— Eric & Jessica – 2009 – Home Staging (to live) Client – Mckinney, TX
When we first moved into our home the front entrance was boring and lacked any appealing features. Using her creative instincts and artistic balance, Michelle transformed the entire front of our house creating an impressive first impression. Using our existing furniture as a starting point, she added the perfect combination of family antiques, artwork, plants and other accessories. Now our dining room, living room, and entrance way function as a whole. We could not be happier with the end result!
— Lisa & David – 2010 – Home Staging Client – Rowlett, TX
Michelle came to my home and I must say I was a little embarrassed at the shape of my guest room (or should I say storage room). It had become an eyesore where my fiance and I literally stacked things we weren’t quite sure where to put. With just a few quick questions and a walk through, Michelle had a plan for making that room a more functional space for us AND she solicited my input each step of the way – it never felt like a stranger in my house! Within hours, Michelle and I had sorted through my stuff and together we had that room not only looking better but Michelle had turned it into a functional space. I no longer dread going to find whatever it is I am looking for because I know it will be right in it’s place. My fiance and I are just at the beginning stages of creating that room into a home office and we hope to have Michelle back out to make some finishing touches on the layout once we get our final furniture pieces!
— Jennifer M. – 2008 – Guest Room, Home Staging -Euless, TX
Michelle is the first Interior Decorator I have worked with and the process has been amazing so far! She brings a complete personalized package to her customers offering ideas and suggestions that fit within their lifestyle and tastes. She was able to give my husband and me multiple options to choose from based on the colors and styles we had discussed during her initial visit. Michelle is an amazingly creative person and has outstanding visions that she is able to bring to life. She is an extremely professional individual, and it shows in her work. I love the fact that she left us with a notebook to guide us through each step of the “transformation” process of decorating (which we refer to often J). Michelle is caring, funny and a joy to be around! She truly enjoys her work and I was able to tell immediately that she had my best interest at heart. She wants to help you make your house a “home” and does an amazing job at it! We absolutely love her work!
