GRANT TIME TO YOUR COMPANY
Granting Time is in one word, “AMAZING!”
“Granting Time is in one word, “AMAZING!” Amanda is extremely organized, thorough and determined to accomplish her task. My wife and I needed to return multiple boxes of diapers that we received from our baby shower, since our son grew out of them so fast. She tracked down the specific stores that sold the brand and went to various stores and spoke to the employees until they agreed to exchange the diapers without a receipts. On another occasions, my wife and I were going to plan a trip to Florida. So we let Amanda know and she put together an amazing spreadsheet detailing, infant policies for the airlines, prices, and flight times as well as car rentals. Lastly, she did a great job negotiating the price for 4 new tires for my car and getting them changed while I worked. She saved my wife and I time and money!”
I will call on Granting Time again when I need a caring helping hand.
“Amanda from Granting Time drove me to a few doctor appointments when I was in too much pain to drive myself. She was very caring and sensitive to what I needed. She made sure I was comfortable in the doctor’s office as well as in the car. Since I was in pain and on meds, Amanda even asked clarifying questions of the doctor and wrote down the answers. I really appreciated this when I got home because I may not have remembered these details. Not only is Amanda very prompt and professional, she truly enjoys being able to help out. I will call on Amanda and Granting Time again when I need a caring helping hand.”
I recommend it 110%!
“WOW! At last, a woman who is reliable, competent and a help to all woman kind. Amanda was available to take me into the District on a day before Christmas to attend a lecture and afternoon tea and was waiting for me when I was finished. No fuss, no muss. She also took me to a local hospital where I had a procedure and waited for me in the waiting room until I was done. What a great service this is. I recommend it 110%!”
Granting time has helped me in more ways than I can count...
“I no longer treat Granting Time as a service that I hire, but instead as a friend that I can call on when I have too much to do!I first hired Amanda to assist me with organizing my cluttered home. She cleaned out and reorganized my pantry, linen closets, craft area, extra freezer and kids’ toy area (to name a few). What a difference it made! When I found out last minute that I’d be hosting my in-laws and other extended family, I knew I needed to call Amanda. At a moments notice she was able to stock my refrigerator with delicious food that best of all was easy to prepare throughout the weekend. The family was very impressed on my ability to “do it all”! (Shhh…that can be our secret!) Granting time has helped me in more ways than I can count and are always polite, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Granting Time for all the things life throws at you.”
I will definitely be contacting Granting Time in the future.
“I recently hired Amanda to research flights and car rental options for my trip to Mexico. She was referred to me by a friend who had only wonderful things to say about her attention to detail and cost effective ways of planning. Amanda was more than willing to go above and beyond to research my itinerary including planning for travel with an infant, flying in and out of multiple cities and making sure we had the proper car seat once we arrived. I really appreciated her patience throughout my trip changes. Since finding out how wide-ranging her services are, I’ve asked her to handle a few customer service calls regarding difficult/past due returns, and have had great success! She has even picked up my dry cleaning! I will definitely be contacting her for her services in the future.”
I can’t say enough positive things about Granting Time!
“I have used Granting Time to help me with almost everything. I call Amanda and tell her all the things that are stressing me out and she helps me get a handle on everything. I work nights and need to sleep during the day, so having Granting Time only a call away has been a huge help! Amanda has helped me organize my home in a way that makes it easy to maintain after is gone. I have also had her assist me with returning items, mailing packages and grocery shopping.Amanda even sends me daily text messages with encouraging words to keep me motivated to continue going to the gym! Getting these text messages gives me the little extra push I need to continue doing what’s best for me.Amanda carries herself in a professional and friendly manner making her easy and wonderful to work with. Not only am I certain that Amanda will get the job done but Granting Time tackles each task with more diligence and care than I would myself. I can’t say enough positive things about Granting Time!”
