What clients are saying...
When I bought a new apartment and wanted to do some small renovations, I contacted Debby Schor Elyasy.
The original kitchen was in an awkward location, lacked sufficient counter and storage space, and only had room for a single sink and oven.
I explained to Debby my kitchen requirements.
She came to my house and looked at my current kitchen space.
Debby presented me with two plans for the new kitchen incorporating all of my requirements.
She was instrumental in helping me find an excellent kablan who made the whole process quite painless.
She facilitated the conversation with the kablan making sure I knew exactly what I needed to ask for.
Debby accompanied me to choose granite for the countertop.
I appreciated her expert eye when choosing the material.
The end result is a kitchen that is a pleasure to look at as well as to work in. It uses the existing space in a very efficient way.
The whole process went quite smoothly thanks to Debby’s professionalism.

"We met Debby when we were buying our apartment.
It was an old, shabby and rather a small apartment that we wanted to renovate and make bigger.
We were blown away by Debby’s reliability and professionalism, never giving in to compromises, precise in her work and her attention to the tiniest details. We were always happy to listen and to put her advice into practice.
The whole process consisted of a pleasant atmosphere and the certainty that we were in good hands.
The result greatly reflects the quality of the work: we’re currently living in a beautiful and comfortable apartment,
where every corner is optimally used, tastefully and practically.”

I am very happy to have chosen to work with you because, in addition to being absolutely professional, you are extremely precise, punctual and responsible.
I highly appreciated the fact that even though you don’t always agree with the client, you listen and try to find out his desires. The company you work with seems competent and helpful, further to being remarkably friendly.
Thank you for everything!”
We had been talking about renovating our kitchen for the longest time.
I reached out to Debby because I had seen her videos and comments on Facebook
and I felt good about the fact that she spoke and understood English and the “oleh” mentality and she seemed very organized.
I loved Debby's plan.
It really included everything I wanted and it ended up being executed with very few changes.
Debby was very confident about what could and couldn’t be done,
and was able to explain to me anything the contractor or carpenter was trying to tell me that I couldn’t conceptualize on my own.
We went shopping together and even if doing extra legwork myself
might have saved me a little money,
I was happy for Debby to take me to places
where I knew I would get quality materials
and that she could intercede for me easily if there were any problems.
All the people directly involved in the renovation were very professional.
All of Debby’s people always came on the days they said they would, were generally on time, and were always able to figure out solutions for those things that unexpectedly come up, which always happens.
And the result is terrific.
"Dear Architect Debby Schor Elyasy,
I would like to thank you for the excellent work carried out during the renovation of our apartment.
Thanks to your professionalism, you managed to best understand our needs, without forcing your own ideas on us.
On the contrary, you always cooperated to find a solution that suited us best from both an aesthetic and economic point of view.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I will not hesitate to recommend your services to my friends and family who need a professional architect.

"The amount of energy that you put into your work goes way beyond a simple architectural planning service. The willingness to learn new things (like the production of wine!) and caring about the fact that the project meets all of the client’s standards, make the client feel like everything is under control.”
Lina, Kadma Winery, Kfar Uriah
"We recommend Debby Schor Elyasy with all of our hearts. She’s professional,
she adapts the project to the client, based on his needs and she provides
The end result speaks for itself!
Guests who come to our apartment can’t believe their eyes!
Thank you for everything!”
Maksim e Netia Karbazov, Rehovot
It was very nice to work with you and to receive your precious advice.
You are professional, reliable, friendly and kind to both clients and employees.
Thank you for everything.”
Sima Doron, Jerusalem
it was fun seeing my living room in a photograph that was published in a magazine!
The element that mostly has an effect on the light in the room is none other than…the green wall!
We are very pleased, and we receive endless compliments on the design of the drop ceiling as well as the color…
Shlomit Gellmann, Modiin
"Debby Schor Elyasy is an excellent professional, and she’s also an open-minded person,
willing to make every effort to fulfill the task that she undertakes.
She has great taste, and she’s always updated on the latest trends in her field. It’s a pleasure to work with her!”
Shaul e Miriam Shaked, Jerusalem
At first, I turned to you because I had heard about your professionalism and your skills and because I could express myself in Italian.
My requests were always respected in the best manner.
Professionally speaking, and friendship aside, you are the best architect I have ever met!”
We made aliyah with 4 kids and my grandmother.
We bought an apartment that it would need to be completely demolished and rebuilt from scratch.
It would take a lot of creativity and skill to design and renovate it to our standards, while still maintaining our budget.
Our friend recommended Debby because she is creative and has the skill to be able to maximize space and functionality,
which is critical when dealing with Israeli apartments
which are generally smaller than apartments/homes in the States.
Debby is not just a skilled architect, she is an Italian designer.
The best part about working with Debby was that she was very detail-oriented, had a great eye for design, and that she took the time to take into account every small detail of our needs to make sure that we were happy with our renovations.
I would definitely recommend working with Debby for people that are looking for creative, stylish and functional designs.
In the end, we received a product that suited our needs,
which is beautifully designed,
and that is significantly cheaper than any of the alternatives that we saw on the market before.
We are very happy with the end product.

I am Debby’s client, Mindy.
Several years ago, we bought an apartment in Yerushalayim, on paper.
This turned out to be a stressful experience for several reasons, not the least of which was the language barrier, as well as the fact that we still lived abroad and the construction was taking a lot longer than we expected.
Although this was not our first home building experience, this was a whole new experience. For our previous purchases and re-nos, we were in “our own backyards”.
We spoke the language, we knew where to shop, which contractors, electricians, plumbers, etc. to use, where to find a kitchen to build, where to find counters, sinks, tiles, which appliances to buy and where, and where to buy furniture.
Here the building wasn’t completed, but we needed to get the kitchen started, choose the tiles, purchase the appliances and the furniture. Where to start?
A friend recommended Debby, an Olah from Europe.
When we met, we felt that she understood our American mindset, and felt this relationship would probably work out.
Since Debby is fluent in Hebrew and English, she was able to communicate with us, the contractors, and shopkeepers.
Debby introduced us to contractors, kitchen carpenters, air conditioning and home security specialists, lighting stores, furniture stores, etc.
She shopped with us for furniture, appliances, etc.
I feel certain that Debby will continue to be there for us as we continue on this new venture.
Good Luck with your adventure!
