Clients are saying:
"We would highly recommend Amanda to anyone! She is smart, savvy, and genuine. Always informative and easy going- all the things you want in a realtor. We were on the market for a total of 13 days, all the while, Amanda working hard for us to make sure our sale was a reality!! She is a beautiful person inside and out and is very much invested in her clients. We thank you Amanda, for all of your hard work and your passion for getting the job done! Could not have asked for a better outcome!"
"Amanda was great to work with. She's incredibly knowledgeable and saved us a lot of money and headaches in the purchase of our new home. First, she discovered a gas leak(!) that occurred after the home inspection and got the seller's agent to have a serviceman there to fix it the same day. Then she pointed out an incomplete survey document during closing. Both of these issues would have cost us hundreds, if not thousands of dollars to remedy on our own. No doubt I would use Amanda again."
"We simply could not ask for more and wholeheartedly recommend Amanda to others. Amanda is tireless, has great common sense, an awareness of client sympathy, and a high sense of personal integrity.. She is also able to tap into a wealth of contacts helpful to all sorts of processes involved in property/land purchasing that has reduced the stress factors.If we sell or purchase another property then it will be accomplished using Amandas services.I am certain that we will keep in touch even though the immediate transaction is complete"
"Let's just say Amanda was AMAZING! I had a difficult purchase decision to make in a short amount of time. I wasn't sure I could pull it off since I work out of town and only had very short widows of opportunitie to identify a property, make offers and close on the property all within 45 days. Amanda took on my challege like a boss and managed me through the entire process. I was able to find the perfect property and close well within my timeframe. I wish every person I worked with was as professional and as acommodating as Amanda. She will be my first choice in a realtor for my next real estate purchase."
"Amanda was the best thing that happened to us as we were looking to purchase our first home. She was courteous, easy to talk with, and almost like a best-friend from the beginning. She made us feel like buying a home was easier than buying a car. She was flexible and generous with her time and worked around our schedules. She initiated contact with us on a regular basis and quickly responded to our questions. Amanda is knowledgeable, professional, and well connected within her field. We highly recommend Amanda and we will use her for our future real estate needs."
