We engaged Amanda after trying without luck to get a list of jobs done on our flat in preparation for sale. The ongoing lockdown due to COVID, plus being based in Australia made it very difficult to coordinate different trades and quotes and we weren’t getting anywhere.
Amanda completely simplified the process for us. She undertook an initial survey of our property and in addition to what we had already identified, recommended improvements that would make a real difference to the marketability of the project. Once work was underway, Amanda oversaw everything, keeping in regular contact with updates and photos. She was professional and proactive throughout, problem-solving quickly when the unexpected arose and going above and beyond to get the work done on time and on budget. Amanda was exactly what we needed and we’d whole-heartedly recommend her services to anyone!
When we decided to sell our London home in late 2020, we faced the challenge of being on the other side of the planet (Seattle, USA) in the middle of a global pandemic. International travel restrictions meant that any dreams we had of flying back to organize making the house ready for sale were impossible and so we were delighted when we found Amanda from Property Reviver and she was able not only to stage the house for sale, but to project manage everything from start to finish.
We couldn’t recommend Amanda highly enough, she has brought a wealth of experience, a flair for interior design, a practical “let’s get this done” attitude and has kept us in touch with both the progress and the budget every step of the way. We think the results speak for themselves.
We recently used Property Reviver to help to sell my flat. Amanda didn’t really have very much time in terms of when we asked her if she was available and then completing the job but basically amazing turnaround time and the flat looks beautiful. I’m looking forward to getting it on the market and showing people around. I love the colours as well, everything is really incredibly well co-ordinated and there’s a part of me that wants to move back to the flat now because it looks so nice. Thank you very much Amanda, much appreciated. A great service especially for someone who is not in the Country and thousands of miles away so thank you very much indeed.
We can’t thank Amanda enough for all her fantastic work in helping us to quickly sell our 5 bedroom house in Herne Hill. From the outset she was responsive and understood our situation and requirements immediately. She transformed the house in very short order and we loved the fact that we were able to hire from Amanda some items of furniture at very reasonable prices – including some pieces that she had skillfully sourced and upcycled herself – all of which complemented and enhanced our existing decor. Her warmth and passion throughout the process made her an absolute delight to work with and we can’t recommend her highly enough.

Transforming the look and feel with small changes
I can’t praise Amanda Caley and Property Reviver highly enough. She is professional at all levels and has the interests of her clients at heart. With small changes she was able to transform the look and feeling of my property. She’s passionate about what she does and it’s a pleasure to work with her.

Amanda’s vision transformed our mother’s retirement flat so that it was bought by the first couple who subsequently viewed it. The flat had been on the market empty for 9 months with few viewings and no offers, so a change was needed. We were tentative about having work done in our absence as no family member lived locally. We need not have worried. From the initial phone call, it was clear Amanda was a creative professional. Once we had approved her proposed refurbishment, she sourced items, supervised contractors and brought the vision to reality. Her use of colour and many added touches brought the rooms to life. Using as many of our own items as possible she reduced costs, adapting to our suggestions, while providing new ideas as well as solutions to old problems, such as an impractical shower. Amanda stayed to budget providing regular, detailed progress reports and photos. I can certainly recommend Amanda. She is helpful, courteous, capable, efficient and very good at what she does. It has been a pleasure working with her. Thank you Amanda.

“The flat is absolutely amazing, it is a complete transformation. I walked in today not knowing exactly what to expect but it looks 100 times better than it did before. The place is light, airy and it is somewhere that you would really want to come and stay now, it is an absolute transformation.
The process has been really good you have given me weekly updates; I have always known what was going on. You have been very upfront with fees and costs. You couldn’t ask for a better journey through the whole process.”
Amanda did a wonderful job with the staging of my empty house. She has great flair and imagination, and created an impressive look within my budget. She also gave me some great tips about improving the overall look. My house sold quickly! Beyond the staging, however, Amanda was so supportive and thoughtful. I live overseas and could not be on the spot. She kept me updated, let me know when something needed attention, and co-ordinated everything perfectly. I am very grateful and would thoroughly recommend Amanda’s service.

Those finishing touches !
I sought Amanda’s help and advice when updating my house before putting it back on the market. I had a few ideas but Amanda’s input was invaluable. She is passionate about what she does and has great vision. Amanda helped me make those important decisions as to what tasks to prioritise above others when working to a budget, colour schemes and how to present my house to its maximum potential. She provided key props to add those all important finishing touches and all the feedback so far has been that the house looks amazing. The house will be marketed for sale shortly and I feel Amanda has given me the help to make the most of my house and hopefully achieve the sale that I need !

With just a handful of subtle changes, Amanda brought the spaces gently alive to the senses. [p.s. I have noticed that the other aspects of the changes are not so subtle!!]
Amanda’s obvious enjoyment of a job well done meant I quickly felt confident in having her set to work on my home.
I know Amanda and her team can take on every part of a project, but I asked to be part of it by taking on a few jobs before she brought them in. That way, it still feels like my place, even though it’s massively different from before she worked her magic.
Suddenly, everyone’s using the word ‘stunning’ to describe my flat!
For the first time, I now look forward to coming home. Amanda listened to my ideas but then took them much further and in directions I’d never have thought of. She added her own creative touches and pulled the whole project together in ways that I’d never have got around to and never believed possible – and on budget and on deadline! Amazing!
Ochre | Staging for sale in Lewisham
We contacted Amanda to help us prepare our property in Hampshire for sale.
We live in Australia and the prospect of trying to co ordinate improvements to the house (after 7 yrs of letting) from the other side of the world, was a daunting one!
We need not have worried, as right from the 1st phone call with Amanda, we knew that we were in safe and competent hands.
She worked swiftly to complete the project on time and on budget. I could write so much more, but in summary I would not hesitate to recommend Property Reviver; Amanda is dedicated to her work and is extremely good at what she does.
I should also add that the first people to view the property made us a good offer within a few days of it being marketed for sale; no need to say any more.
Tartan | Refurbish and staging for sale in the Meon Valley
We engaged Amanda at Property Reviver to refurbish our waterfront apartment (which had been previously let) and dress it for sale. Amanda coordinated decorators, flooring fitters etc and ensured that the apartment was spotless and refreshed in time for an open day presentation.
The apartment received a great deal of interest and we had immediate offers. The results speak for themselves.
We would definitely recommend Property Reviver, they are very professional, friendly and practical in approach and kept us informed of progress throughout. They are in touch with market expectations and offer several levels of service from a ‘freshen-up’ to complete refurbishment.
We would have no hesitation in using Property Reviver again.
Refurbish and staging for sale in Gosport
I own a two bedroom Victorian conversion flat in London. I needed some help with giving it a makeover. Amanda spent time getting to know me and the sorts of things I liked and didn’t like.
Amanda came up with some great ideas and found some top quality items at great prices. Amanda encouraged me to look and think about things that I wouldn’t normally think about myself and step outside my comfort zone in terms of colour combinations and styles. Having Amanda on board really made a difference. I particularly adore the spectacular chandeliers she found for my lounge and bedroom they were both excellent quality at the right price.
If you are thinking of giving your property a makeover and need some additional inspiration then call Amanda and get her to find some special gems for you too!
We run a small gite business in the south of France and Amanda’s help on so many aspects of the development project in 2008 has helped us to establish a very successful business.
Amanda’s ideas ranged from moving walls to create much more usable space to suggesting the type of furniture that would be most suitable and where to source it at the best price.
Her understanding of the rentals market and how it differs to ones own home allowed us to make much better informed decisions that have proved to be successful over a number of years. She has great ideas that are original but also practical in the real world.
Amanda is very easy to work with and her genuine enthusiasm for all things property and design is very inspiring, particularly in the middle of a project when energy can flag a bit. She is always conscious of deadlines and budgets and actually gets great satisfaction from finding things needed at the bargain prices.
Amanda is part business guru, project manager, designer, as well bringing a fantastic positive energy to her projects.
