MY GOLD SUPPLIERS' LIST

"I did like how you not only had the video but then everything in writing, plus checklists for every module. 

Very efficient and appealing to all types of learners. 

Masterclass 5 was a simple but thorough approach to how you approach a renovation. 

For someone who has never done a renovation before, especially in Israel, it is a great outline of what to do and how important it is to set up a timetable. 

For someone who has done a lot of remodeling as I have--probably at least one remodeling job a year for about 12 years, it's a good review"

Who created the toolkit?

Shalom! My name is Debby Schor Elyasy.

I fulfilled my childhood dream and immigrated to Israel in 2004.
Upon arrival, I experienced the frustration and insecurity that you feel when you do not have mastery of the language or a full understanding of the local culture and mentality. Today I feel like an Israeli despite being born in Italy, so it is important for me to help you realize your dream of having an apartment in Israel.

I am an Italian-Israeli architect with experience in architecture, interior design and green building in architecture offices in Barcelona, ​​Milan, and Jerusalem.

I have an Israeli license in architecture (License No. 117947). My office, founded in 2009, deals with the planning of private homes, luxury apartments, offices, etc., starting from the initial planning stages and moving down to the smallest details, including handling licensing procedures.

 

In recent years, I have helped dozens of customers from Israel and from abroad successfully plan their home in Israel.
I would be honored to help you get ready for the renovation of your home in Israel!
