Utah’s Top Rated Local® Interior Designer Award Winner: Lisman Studio

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Lisman Studio is a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

“It has been our extreme good fortune to work with Lisman Studio. [Our designer], simply stated, is a genius. We were the grateful beneficiaries of his remarkable creativity. We also worked closely with [another Lisman designer] who demonstrated a keen sense of creative style and an eye for fresh and unique ideas. She was delightful to work with, made wonderful suggestions, and captured our desires to the tee. Both [designers] exceeded, by far, our expectations and did so with extraordinary results.” -Barb M.

“I worked with Lisman Studios to come up with a unique and innovative design for our essential oils and natural products retail store. [The designer was] extremely professional to work with and my wife and I were very impressed with her ideas. We implemented the majority of her design ideas and we get compliments every day from new customers that visit.” -Adam W.

We are thrilled to say that Lisman Studio is a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner and that the above are just two of the reviews that got them there. Ecstatic clients like these have given them a stellar 95.18 Rating Score™ and helped them to become one of the top three interior design companies in the entire state of Arizona.

Not Your Average Interior Design Company

Focusing on giving each of their clients interior design services that meet their unique needs, Lisman Studio has thoroughly impressed the people they serve. We spoke with Blake Lisman, the marketing manager of the company, about his business’ online reputation. We asked what sets Lisman Studio apart from other businesses, to which he said, “Our biggest thing that makes us unique is that we try really hard to avoid being trendy. A lot of design firms will try really hard to stay on trend and follow what’s popular, but we try to avoid that. We would much prefer to have a custom-tailored project to those specific clients. So, if a client comes to us and they have these certain needs, we try to meet those needs, not try and change them to what is trendy at the moment.”

Building Success Through

So, what is the Lisman secret to online success? According to Blake, “Quantity and consistency. Consistently posting content and making sure we are doing that at least on a daily basis on our social media or at least weekly on our website.”

As for advice to other companies, interior design and otherwise, looking to build up a phenomenal online reputation, Blake said the key is “Consistency. Making sure you choose the look that you want and sticking with that. Doing that over and over and over and over again. If you try and make changes with it or try to alter it in any way, you just have to start over from the beginning, so really making sure you are consistent in what you are doing. It’s going to take a long time but eventually, it will pay off…”


Congratulations to the team at Lisman Studio for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Interior Designers Award Winner: Andrea West Design

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Andrea West Design is a 2018 award winner for interior designers in Utah!

Is it time to give your home or office a facelift? If so, there’s one interior designer in Layton that stands above the rest — Andrea West Design.

Andrea West Design has earned multiple online reviews with an average rating of 5.00 stars, an impressive Rating Score™ of 86.00 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked among the top 10 interior designers in all of Utah!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews they’ve earned from their happy clients:

“Andrea does amazing design work. She helped me design my apartment and my wife’s office! I’ve seen some of her other work in homes as well, and it is top notch. Can’t wait until I have my own home for her to design!” – Jon S

Not Your Average Interior Designer

Although Andrea West Design is a smaller firm, they have what it takes to visually compete with large design firms in terms of their design style. As luxury designers, the experts at Andrea West Design have the time to give their full attention to every project and deliver unparalleled service to their clients.

We asked Andrea West, the owner and lead designer of Andrea West Design, why she does what she does. Here’s what she had to say:

“We believe that everyone deserves a beautiful home. Since I was a kid, I’ve always had fun creating beautiful spaces that are also functional. Now, I have the ability to share that passion with my clients, which is incredibly rewarding for me and them both.”

Building Success By Capturing the Design

Andrea credits her company’s strong online reputation to her team’s commitment to capturing the design well.

“When you nail the design, the clients are happy to leave you reviews and refer you to their friends and family.”

Andrea West Design was formed right after Andrea and her husband got married. They bought two houses that were in rough shape, and they used their skills on those two homes to create portfolio pieces for their website and to show off their best and most creative ideas. Upon seeing what they were capable of, some of their friends started asking for help with their own homes, and the rest is history.

From the company’s humble beginnings, Andrea has always been focused on next-level service that encourages her clients to spread the word. As a result, Andrea West Design has been in business for about six years now, and they’ve never had to pay for advertising to this point.

We asked Andrea what advice she has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s what she had to say:

“Be genuine and do what you love. People will see that and be drawn to you for your talent and interest.”


Congratulations to the team at Andrea West Design for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Andrea, for taking the time to speak with us!

If you’re in the market for an interior designer who can transform your space like never before, we highly recommend Andrea West Design. They even offer a virtual design package that makes it possible for them to work with clients who aren’t local! Visit their website today to learn more.

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Interior Designer Award Winner: Inspired by Design

We are thrilled to announce that Inspired by Design is a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner, thanks to their phenomenal online reviews and incredible 97.47 Rating Score™. Here are just two of the many reviews from happy clients that got them here:

“Kellie Lansberry of Inspired by Design put the final touches on our kitchen remodel today! ‘Inspired’ is exactly how I would describe Kellie; she has an amazing talent of coming up with ideas and solutions to give you exactly what you have always wanted but just hadn’t figured out. Thank you, Kellie! You’re a genius at what you do!” -Sandra R.

“I used Kellie to help me stage my home, and not only did it sell in a week, but we also got more than the asking price! If you are considering selling, I would 100% use Inspired by Design! I have also seen first-hand a remodel of a room that was incredible and so personalized to the owner that she cried tears of happiness when she saw it! Inspired by Design is professional, courteous, honest, and well worth your time!” -Jamie L.

Kellie Lansberry, owner of Inspired by Design, took a moment to discuss her business’ online reputation and success with us. This is what she thought we should know:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

Truth be told, it’s just caring about people. My name goes on every job, and I take that very seriously. I honor my word through every phase of the project

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

The biggest thing that sets us apart is that we offer both design and construction. This allows us to maintain quality across the board as we get into the nuts and bolts.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

I actually love helping people love their home. A lot of people have a house and not a home. Our number one priority is to create a place that fits their family. Also, construction has become kind of a lax industry, but here, we only hire quality personnel. Even though it costs more, we can offer higher quality work that way.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

I get a lot of word of mouth business. I show up and do my job and do what I say I’m going to do.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Stay in regular contact with your customers. One of the biggest things I provide for my customers is that I’m always available and just a phone call away. Not everything we do runs smoothly, but I’m always working to make sure the client stays happy.


Kellie, thank you for taking the time to speak with us! We appreciate it. Congratulations to you and your entire team on your 2018 Top Rated Local award!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Interior Design Award Winner: Toscano Interiors

We are excited to announce that Toscano Interiors is a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner for their extraordinary 94.73 Rating Score™! They are one of Colorado Springs’ top choices in all things interior design and have happily served countless satisfied customers. Here are a couple of our favorite reviews they’ve received:

“Candance Toscano is an incredible designer who managed to transform my house into a home! She is very talented and took the utmost care in each element of our home to create exactly what I had dreamed of, only so much better! Her skills are very diverse and her prices are even better! I recommend her services to everyone. She has an ability to design that truly gets to the heart of what you are dreaming of.” -Lori M.

“I hired Toscano Interiors to help me design the inside of my house. I have zero design ability and when I do try, I fail miserably. When it came time to sit down and get the ideas from my head to her paper, it was surprisingly easy. She was able to understand my babbling and turn it into exactly what I was looking for! The design board that was created for me has helped me find what I need and stay within my budget! It’s more than I could have ever asked for! Now I am about to buy some awesome couches from their shop! Couldn’t ask for a better experience.” -Audra N.

Toscano Interiors owner, Candance Toscano, took a moment to discuss her company’s stellar reputation with us. Here’s what she had to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

My personal secret to Toscano Interiors’ strong online reputation is that I built my business around authenticity. What you see online is what you get in person. Consistency is key.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

My unique background in sales and psychology, as well as my certification as a life coach, combined with my design experience and skills to really set my business apart. I ask questions and listen carefully to my clients. It’s their space, and I believe they should get exactly what they want in it.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

Again, this goes back to the life coaching and psychological aspects of my experience. I work with a lot of people who are going through massive life transitions — some joyful and some difficult. Helping them create a space that really reflects their taste and personality can ease the transition.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

Most of my business comes from referrals; my clients are awesome at spreading the word.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Always be authentic, and be yourself. Don’t “fake it till you make it.” That will ultimately hurt you. You can only get so far faking it. Stay true to yourself and your business, and be sure to think outside the box as much as possible.


Thank you for taking the time to speak with us about your business, Candance! We appreciate it. Congratulations to you and your entire team on your Top Rated Local award!
