I love being a home stager because it enables me to implement my two passions - design and educating. I'm required to be equal parts designer, educator and psychologist. As a Certified Stager, I understand that buyers primarily choose a home based upon their emotional connection to it. It's very satisfying, exciting and challenging to me to educate my clients about the benefits and value of staging their homes before listing them and to be a part of the process from beginning to end.
I always had an eye for detail and what works best together. I was a licensed Kindergarten teacher and than a stay at home mom to three beautiful children. A native of New York, I designed and renovated my own homes and assisted a client with their commercial office furnishings business in the NY Design Center. Friends, family and colleagues would come to me and ask for design advice. At their suggestion and my passion, I deceided to do this professionally.
I took post graduate classes in interior design to hone skills that came naturally to me. Years later I discovered that staging is utilizing the same principles of design but instead of designing for the homeowner I would be designing for the buyer. I received my accredited certification in home staging and focused my business preparing homes for sale.
I really love the whole creative process. Not many people I know get excited shopping for couch pillows, accent chairs and cocktail tables...but I do!
" Amanda is very professional, prompt and courteous. She has great taste and insight to appeal to the home buyers.
"Amanda was very professional, a good listener and she understood what I wanted to accomplish and she did just that. She was a delight to work with."
"They worked a couple things for me, redid a bathroom. She extremely pleasant to work with, outside of the box thinker and very professional. I will work with her again."
"My home was on the market for 3 months with no offers. My real estate agent never said anything to me about home staging. I found Amanda's company online and called her right away. She came to my house within 3 days for my consultation. Two days later she came to stage the house herself. Everything turned out beautiful. The next weekend was another open house and we got an offer!! My husband and I are so happy. We recommend Finished Touch Designs to help you sell your home fast. Thank you again Amanda"
"Perfect touch! It is a pleasure to write a review for Amanda! Amanda has a sharp eye for detail and knows how to bring a room together. As a real estate agent, I know that first impressions are everything. Buyers decide if they like a home within the first few seconds of seeing it. I appreciate the changes and improvements she makes when staging a home. It makes my job so much easier!! She is friendly, easy going and very tactful with my homeowners when discussing the importance of decluttering. With builders, investors and flippers, she understands the importance of "setting the stage" on a budget so that the seller can maximize their return on their investment. Again, such a pleasure!"
"I thought they did an excellent job home staging my place for rental, and within about two weeks it was already rented."
"Beautiful Results🌸 So happy with the end results, Amanda has an awesome touch. She listened to what I wanted and worked around my needs. I was always afraid of color but she added color and my kitchen and den look beautiful."
"Very professional, great ideas. Amanda helped my wife and I prep and stage our home to sell. She was always on time, had great ideas and very easy to work with. Our house sold within one month on the market. We definitely recommend Amanda and The Finished Touch Home Staging."
