Hi Amy!

I just want to take the time to thank you again for all of your help today. We accomplished way more than I thought would be possible! I am so pleased with the selections you chose and now I really am starting to get excited!
Thanks again! I am looking forward to working with you!

Hi Amy,

Will send a check for the painting. The price is fine.

I am going to go with the hand stitch comforter.  I think the buttons might be too much.

Today was a great day.  I’m loving the house and Gary actually said he liked it.  You have done such a great job.  And I did enjoy talking with you.  Your funny.

Try not to work too hard this weekend and watch out for that darn puppy poop.. LOL

Have a great weekend.

Good Morning Amy

Charlie and I want to thank you again for all your organizing so that we could leave town!  We

Good morning Amy,

I think the curtains in the nook and den will look great.  I do like the separate polls for the

curtains on the sliding glass door.  This is the most excited I have been since the first of

the year when I started this.  I just want to thank you for listening and learning what I like.

I really appreciate and I’m happy I found you.  So thank you for making me happy and excited to

get my home done.

Carolyn and I visited the new Beach Haven model this afternoon and we were really blown away.

The house itself is really fantastic but your interior design was the best we have seen.  We

loved every bit of it and told both the builders (who were both there gloating) that if we were

ever going to build another house I would just prefer to give you a budget and have you do it

yourself.  I would really love that.  I believe that the model will be a great selling point

for them.

Hi Amy

I’m totally accustomed to the cornices and absolutely love them.  They are a big WOW-factor to

visitors… I’ve gotten a lot of raves of both the design and the material/colors.  Everyone

loves how the colors match and draw out the color of ‘the’ wall (and the nook).  And they are

amazed at how contemporary / modern the style is. I could go on, but you get the drift… you are

valued (and recommended) highly!

Take Care,

It’s all coming together and looks so great.  Thanks, can’t wait to hear the comments from people when

they see the house now.  All credit goes to you.

Hi Amy

The paint looks great!!  The gray is so elegant and such a sharp color against the bright white

ceiling and trim, and the mauve is soothing.  Of course, I can’t be responsible for anyone that

calls it “purple”.  Everyone raved about the tray ceiling… it’s absolutely beautiful!!  Many

kudos to you!!! I’m so glad I found you.  I’m sure I would’ve decided on a light ‘purple’-ish

color of all the walls and never would’ve known the difference, but with your help I’m really

excited about all the special touches and can’t wait to see the finished product.

I hope you had a good time at Market.

Looked at your new sight, and you do great work.  Jill and I really enjoy our trips down to

Florida and your design made it a very comfortable and special place for us.  Thank you for

your help on this furniture matter; you’ve been a great help to us.

Hi –

Amy just left having revisited with some really lovely fabrics for our project… I am truly very

pleased with the choices she presented and have picked a new one that won’t; make me break out

in a rash when I think of its cost.  Just wanted you to know that she really came through big

time… I told her I would let you know that she is doing a good job.. and I certainly didn’t

want to give anyone the impression she was not… Sweet girl.

Hi Amy

First let me thank you for all your help.  It is hard to believe we are almost thru the

selection process for the construction of our house.  I drove home dreaming about the house and

in my mind visualizing all that we have selected together.  I am so pleased.  You have been

wonderful to work with and gently guided us thru the process.  You have made a very stressful

situation for me less stressful.

Hi Amy

We just got back last night.  Everything looks wonderful; I am so pleased with it all!  You are

wonderful to get it all done including the arch above the fireplace, while we were away!  I had

just noticed the wet stain before we left when I was showing Dave what you would have to do to

install a shade, but had not had a chance to advise the builder, so thank you again for that as

Hi Amy

I just had to tell you that my sister and brother-in-law loved our house.  But what they loved

the most was the way it was decorated.  If I had a dollar for every time they said how

beautifully it was appointed I’d be a rich lady.  They said you were worth every penny.  Don

and I agree.  We love our house!!! Thank you for being soooooo good at what you do.

Hi Amy

We would like you to go ahead with the fabric for the rug border –  I really think it is great!

Also, Chuck LOVED the ceiling faux idea for the Dining Room so we will talk more about that

when the columns are fauxed.  Our living space is really coming together thanks to all your

great ideas and persistence!  We appreciate your patience with us.  We look forward to having

the Master bedroom done soon – I’m sure we will be amazed when it all comes together.  Enjoy

your trip to the Atlanta Market.  Thanks again!

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your note and for looking after the house while we were away.  Your advise and

council with regard to the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry is superb.  We’ve received lots of

complements from those of our friends who have seen your handiwork!!

Glenn and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!

I wanted to thank you and your “glowing” assistant for spending time here today accessorizing.

I truly love what you have done.  I can’t wait to have some “get togethers” so I can show off

our home.  Thank you, Amy.  Happy Turkeyday!

We have recently signed our Finer Points Contract with Coastal for our new condo.  For us this

was a complex and tedious process which was made easy by your Finer Points Coordinator, Amy

Steedley.  She walked us through some tough decisions we had to make and did it with patience

and professionalism.

What would we have done without Amy?  With her knowledge of the trades involved in our

selections her help in choosing colors, fixtures, tiles, etc.  made the process very easy; and

much of this was done at our convenience after normal business hours and even on weekend.

Amy immediately and expertly took charge of the meeting for the purpose of helping us as

purchasers decide on all details of the interior of the unit.  My wife and I came away with a

feeling that we had received first class service from an obviously very competent professional

who made our experience a very positive one.  Having recently purchased another condominium in

South Florida, I can tell you that the differences are evident and startling.

We wanted you to know how valuable you were to us this past week.   Your generous allowance of

time enabled us to proceed with the purchase of a residence which had not even been in our

minds the week before!  You went out of your way to accommodate our limited schedule.  Had we

not been able to get knowledgeable advice from you, we would never have bought our new condo.

Please know that you have our appreciation and heartfelt thanks.
