LOVE

There's really is no place like home...

Anyone who knows me knows that my home and being home with my family and friends, is my most cherished place to be. Growing up underprivileged had a large impact on me becoming the humble person I am today. There was never any shortage of love and none of us in my family who went through those hard times can deny that. I was lucky then and I’m lucky now! I look around on the daily and can’t believe this is my life! Love built me and continues to grow me. It is the back bone to every single thing that I do including raising my step children like they‘re my own, and loving their Dad more than I’ve ever loved anything in this world. I immerse myself in the good stuff on the daily, and very much enjoy being surrounded by people in my personal life, and in business that are like minded. Nothing means more to me then my friends, family, and my new found love of self care. I’ve enjoyed learning that I’m nothing to anyone, unless I take care and love on me first. I even found a friendship in myself that I never knew was possible. Love in some way, shape or form is the whole reason why we rise up and show up to do our very best everyday anyways isn’t it? Well then, there you have it.. We’ve got something in common! “Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.” Vincent Van Gogh

LIGHT

That ripple tho…

A while back I was inspired by a group of girls who decided to start a bit of a challenge called the #snowballeffect for local charities in our community around Christmas. It's been an incredible movement and got me thinking... why not try a do something when our local food bank was is in its biggest need, so that’s exactly what my former Real Estate team and I did. We created a competition within school district 51 in YQL called #feedingfutureminds. We proudly raised just shy of 18,000 pounds of food! 18,000 POUNDS OF FOOD! We were so excited and I remember Broc (The principal of the winning school and friend of mine) telling me a story on reveal day about two little girls who decided to have a bake sale, take all their earnings and hit the grocery store. Hearing this warmed my heart and was a good reminder that we all have little eyes watching us. If you don't think you can make a difference think again! Sometimes all it takes is one small act of kindness or a smile to create a ripple. It still blows my mind to think of the impact that we made in our community, all from one little idea that was executed with action. Looking at all of those kids sitting in that assembly looking back at us brought me to tears, and completely changed my life. #feedingfutureminds became the premises for this boss babe to be the change I wish to see in the world. Out of all the things I’ve accomplished in my life, this one I’m most proud of. I hope to inspire as many as I can in my lifetime to be their own shining light and to spread it as far as they can. “Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” Ryunosuke Satoro

HAPPINESS

Happiness really is a state of mind...

Becoming a balanced, well rounded, present and grateful person is what my life is all about. It took me a very long time to get to where I am today, but let me TELL YOU... I have arrived! I believe that it is my life’s work to leave a positive imprint on everyone I meet, while being my authentic shiny self! True happiness is a state of mind they say but I believe we get there by surrounding ourselves with the people, places, circumstances, and sometimes things (weekly pizza dates too) that light us up. Meditation, reading, writing, being creative, setting boundaries, cooking, moving my body, dance parties for one, hugging my girls, and not taking life so serious all the time are just some of the ways that I’ve got here, but most of my happiness is owed to being truly grateful. I am grateful for everything that I have gone through, all the good AND the bad because it has led me here to you! I’ve been able to help so many clients over the years doing what I do and being privileged to be a part of their process makes me smile! If you can find your happy, hold onto that and guard it with your life, it’s a place some aren’t able to find but the rest of us who can, well I guess I call us blessed. “Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” Bil Keane

Real Estate

I’ve had the privilege of working beside some of the top Real Estate agents in Canada for over 1/2 of my Real Estate career. I've learned many things in over 10 years of being licensed in Commercial, Rural & Residential Real Estate but to me, there really is no place like home! I feel so humbled to be a part of such an important part of each of my clients’ lives! I take great pride in my negotiating skills, contract law knowledge & the friendships that often transpire as a result of the service I provide. I am THRILLED to be back on my own to focus on spending more time with my clients & relationship building, while being an incredible asset in the Real Estate process. If you’re thinking about buying or selling or know someone who is, let’s connect! It would be my honor & privilege to be in your corner!

Personal Styling

I still remember how hard I worked for my first pair of Guess jeans. They were an ugly Oscar the grouch colour but man oh man I was proud & worked my little butt off to buy them. Prior to my first job at 13, going back to school shopping was something that everyone in my family dreaded, mostly my Mom. She wanted the best for my sister & I and I know that it broke her heart to not be able to do more for us. Although I know she was worried, I ROCKED those Salvation Army Floral jeans first day of grade 6! From the earliest I can remember I’ve been obsessed with fashion & style more specifically so I’ve decide to start a styling business on the side, just for some good old fashioned FUN! I am so super passionate about making others feel great, just like I felt in those Guess jeans many years ago. I pride myself in having an eye for a good find & LOVE being the organized, frugal freak that I am, so it seemed like a no brainer! The levels of this service are client specific & range from anything from special event styling to wardrobe building & personal shopping, some of the things that set my soul on fire! Feel free to book a consult if this is something that interests you, because there’s nothing quite like feeling our best, always!

Amanda’s favourite family of all time (just ask her)

Amanda’s favourite family of all time (just ask her)

We first met Amanda 8 years ago when we moved to Lethbridge. Right away, we loved her big energy and commitment to finding us the perfect home. We had two teenage girls with opinions of their own on which house would do. Amanda took it in stride and got to know our girls well. She found us a great home in the best neighbourhood close to the girls’ high school. The whole process was made easy by her vast knowledge of the business . Since then, both daughters have bought houses of their own through Amanda as she has always kept in touch more like a friend than just our Realtor. My sister moved here as well and needed a house with a special walk-out for our parents to move into as well. Again, Amanda came through with professionalism and amazing customer service. We will be downsizing in the spring and can’t imagine using anyone else to sell our family home and help us with the next step in our real estate future. Proud to call her a family friend and always recommend her to all friends and family looking for their next home.

Amanda is a great listener. She likes to keep things light and when things get serious she knows how to take the stress off of you so you can focus on the important decisions. She focuses on your needs and what is important and always delivers. We would not have found our new home without her.

Our experience with Amanda was superb! The first time we met her, we knew that she was the only person we wanted to work with. Her honesty was so refreshing and her excitement was contagious. As first time home buyers we were very unsure, and Amanda walked us through the process so we knew exactly what to expect and was always there to answer our questions. We were afraid that living out of town and working crazy schedules would make things difficult, but Amanda always had time for us. Our list wish was short, but Amanda listened and helped us to find exactly what we wanted in the perfect neighborhood! After our offer was accepted and we waited for our closing date, Amanda was fantastic. She worked with the lawyer and bank to make sure that everything was going smoothly. Even on possession day, she made sure that we had what we needed. Having an agent who understood us and took the time to get to know us made the process painless and complete. We would highly recommend Amanda McNeely to all family and friends who are seeking to sell or buy a property!
