Look who's talking about DeAnna...
Dalene Skates, Owner, Virtual Solutions -“I first became acquainted with DeAnna (owner of Bante Design and affectionately known the "House Whisperer"!) when one of her articles, The Forgotten Space....the Basement, appeared in our online magazine WEENC. She is wonderfully talented writer with a terrific sense of humor and a true passion for her subject. I was then asked to appear on her blogtalk radio program. She made the whole experience such a treat that the time simply flew by. Before I knew it our time together was over. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend DeAnna to anyone who needed a gifted writer, a talented speaker for their next event, or - should the need arise - a "House Whisperer."” July 12, 2010

“DeAnna has come to my home and office and showed me how to get the most "energy" out of my spaces. She walks through each space and explains each principal in detail and recommends any changes you need to make. I have noticed many changes after I have completed DeAnna's suggestions she is the first person I call when I move into a new space or even to "tweek" my existing space.” August 14, 2008
Can a Dog Lover be Accepted at a Cat Conference?
"DeAnna Radaj launched the Cat Writers' Association 17th Annual writers' conference in November 2010 to an eager audience. As vice president of CWA and the person responsible for booking and the scheduling speakers, I was delighted with all the positive feedback I received about Ms. Radaj's talk, "Marketing 102: To Blog, or Not to Blog? That is the Question." She was easy to work with, prompt, entertaining, knowledgeable and very professional. (I wish I could say the same for all of my speakers.) I would love for her share her expertise at a future conference." -Dusty Rainbolt. Vice President Cat Writers' Association
