About us

Marissa and Nicole joined forces in 2019 to add a whole new level of service and a broader design perspective in staging. Together, they have become an unstoppable force in home staging and interior renovation design for investors, builders, realtors, and home owners. The Luxe Design Group, now known as LXDG, has grown from a stay-at-home mom side operation to a full-service Staging and Design Studio. Headed by two strong leaders and offering a warehouse full of designer furniture with a team of professionals ready to serve clients in Houston, and the surrounding areas, gives LXDG the edge on providing winning results.

Meet Marissa Sorola

Marissa Sorola is a family-oriented, Real-Estate loving, astute business owner and interior designer. She realized her entrepreneurial spirt early on and started her first business at 20, designing swimwear. That endeavor opened many doors and eventually landed her in Real Estate, where she became a successful Realtor. Aside from her primary role, she was often asked to help her clients decorate their homes or make design choices during their home renovations, which led her to her next business endeavor to do home staging and design. After getting an offer within 2 days after staging a stagnant listing with her own furniture, Marissa used the commission she made on that sale and invested into her own set of staging furniture to continue to assist sellers, and the rest is history. Although being a stay at home mother was her primary focus for the past 10 years, Marissa has simultaneously continued to build her business on the side by providing design and staging services to her clients. When she is not manhandling sofas or being an uber driver for her kids, she enjoys renovating investment homes with her husband, photography, shopping at Home Goods, working out, planning parties and events, and not sleeping to get projects done.

Meet Nicole Leal

Nicole Leal is a notorious serial stager, DIY home flipper, and savvy furniture market shopper. Her passion for home aesthetics can be traced back to her pre-professional days. Whether she was consulting with family members between final exams on how they can maximize their return on personal remodeling projects or staging their home prior to being listed for sale, she was on the path to becoming a professional home stager from the start. Her educational background includes a M.A., with high honors, in Social Work from The University of Texas at Austin and a B.A. in Psychology from St. Edward’s University. Although Nicole enjoyed utilizing her leadership skills and passion to help at-risk youth in the non-profit sector, she also thrived in renovating and staging homes for herself and clients on the side. With a results-oriented and creative mindset, and a love for envisioning the potential in any given space, she prides herself in a good before and after project. When relaxing from super mom and business development activities, she enjoys a good cup of joe, reads up on all things interior design, and dabbles with day-trading.
