"We at the McPherson Group Real Estate team, recently had the pleasure of working with Amanda Hatcher of Stages of Life Designs. We were impressed with her expertise and innovation. The job was accomplished with attention to details and we appreciated the fact that Amanda brought a fresh approach to the task at hand. In a prompt and timely manner, the staging was done and we have had many positive comments on it. We would have no hesitation recommending Amanda to friends, family and clients."

"We hired Amanda to stage our home after an unsuccessful attempt at selling a couple of years ago. I was not very familiar with the whole “staging” concept when it came to selling your home, but I knew that it was recommended and could be very helpful. Amanda was so knowledgeable about her field and has such a great eye for detail that I knew I was in good hands after our first meeting. She made my home so spectacular that it sold within 11 days! I would recommend her to anyone trying to sell their home in today’s market."
"Amanda, I wish to thank you so very much for the beautiful design you made for us yesterday. It was truly appreciated. It is exactly what I was trying to get at and could not. You are talented, and can read people's minds when they do not know how to express what they are trying to achieve. A wonderful arrangement. Frank and I are so happy, it is perfect. THANK YOU!"

"Amanda from `Stages of Life` was referred to me by a friend who knew I was struggling with the hundreds of choices one has to make when decorating a new home. In particular, the biggest challenges were finding the perfect colour and texture of hardwood flooring to go with the ceramic tile I had already chosen for the kitchen and paint colours. Amanda accompanied me to the various stores where I showed her my favourites. She listened to me when I described what I wanted to achieve for the look and feel of our space. She then offered suggestions based on her site visits, my goals and the samples that were available. The interior decor of our new home turned out to be what I had hoped for and Amanda had a very positive impact on my ability to accomplish this. She is gifted with keen colour, texture and space perception and has an ability and desire to share this with others. I found her to be very professional and conscientious of our time and budget objectives. I recommend you give Amanda a call. You won`t be disappointed!"
"Amanda is amazing! She brought my vision to reality. She created a direction/plan for our kitchen that is more beautiful than I could have imagined. And it all started, from me giving her, a green glass knob....."
"Amanda is an amazing worker! Couple that with her eye for scale, beauty and organization and you get real bang for your buck!!!"
"My husband and I are very happy with the new look to our home Amanda worked with me to create. We are particularly happy that our stunning new look was totally based on stuff we already had. I look forward to Round 2."
"I did not quite believe Amanda could come to our home and using our old sentimental things make a significant change. She considered my opinions, helped declutter and arranged our furniture, pictures and objects in a fresh creative way. No new purchases!
Amanda is fun and easy going to work with. I am very pleased with the attractive changes."
"We are selling our home and I wanted it to look great. I contacted Amanda for help. I had anticipated that I would have to purchase some expensive items to stage our home and was not looking forward to that.
Amanda's first visit was amazing. We went through each room/closet while she gave me instruction on how to de-clutter and organize. After a few weeks of following her instruction I asked her back. In a very short time she had rearranged each room using what furniture I had. The end result looks so much better than I had hoped! And the bonus is that I did not have to purchase anything. In fact, I ended up getting rid of a lot.
I am so thrilled with what she accomplished and would highly recommend anyone needing help with organization, decorating, staging, picking paint colors, etc. She is very talented."
"Just wish to say LOVE IT!!!!!"
Where can we start...cause you really did not know our style until you started to ask questions and show us a few things. The modern/contemporary look that one of us like, and the rustic look that the other likes, is a very difficult thing to put together, and if possible we wanted the outside look to come inside. You figured us out...! You managed to put it together for both of us...Amanda amazing work, you did work hard on this we know. We very much appreciate it."
