First Class Design & Renovation LLC is an Orange County based company that purchases distressed homes in fine neighborhoods. Our goal is simple: Restore and update these homes to current safety codes while protecting the home values of surrounding homes. Our approach is unique. We are not a large investment firm. We look at our purchases on a case by case basis. Most of our purchases help families out of difficult situations…and into their next step.

Della Bond Hysten


Della Bond Hysten, former CPA and auditor with Ernst & Young in Chicago, worked with smaller, entrepreneurial clients to organize and streamline their accounting policies and procedures.

Since leaving the workplace to raise a family, and having relocated multiple times to various regions of the country, she learned how to manage many home renovation projects and this is where she found her passion.  Della’s personal experience in home renovation, as well as studies in interior design and drafting, helps her clients see “beyond the current walls” in a house, to the home it can ideally become with minor improvements.

Della is an agent and part of Prestige Property Management, BRE 01979126, and has worked closely in the past with realtors when buying and selling her own personal properties. She has a good understanding of the entire real estate sales process, from listing to closing. Della is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor of Science Degree and a major in Accounting.  She also has an Associate Degree in Fashion Merchandising.


As a company we are committed to preserving the earth’s natural resources. In the state of California most discarded construction materials are sorted and recycled. We comply with all state and local laws when it comes to the proper handling of these elements.

All items that can be spared and salvaged are donated to local charities for reuse.
