Amanda strives to provide personal attention and responsiveness to her clients.
Why did you go into real estate?I began my career in real estate because I enjoy meeting new people and helping others, so I figured what better way to fulfill that passion than assisting new homeowners with the biggest purchase of their life.
What unique value do you bring to clients, i.e. why should a client choose to work with you? I try my best to give each client my complete attention and have as much prepared for them in advance as possible. I strive to be responsive 24/7 and stay a step ahead of the process so they are informed and never have to wonder “what’s next?”. I also feel it’s important that I stay knowledgeable and up-to-date about the different loan types, financing options and the current market to best serve my clients. I worked as a paralegal for 12 years prior to becoming a realtor and believe my experience in the legal field is beneficial to my clients.
Do you have any special certifications, continuing education or awards relevant to the industry? I was awarded Rookie of the Year during my first year of real estate. During my second year, I received the Honor Society Emerald Award, Silver Agent of the Year, and voted “Happy Camper” by a local lender.
What are you PASSIONATE about outside of real estate? Or, what do you like to do in your spare time? Interests? Hobbies? I enjoy group fitness classes and have taught at Anytime Fitness as a group fitness instructor for 6 years.
