Amanda handled both the purchase of my current home and the sale of my prior home in the fall and winter of 2013. She showed me a number of homes in my price range, some times even before other brokers were able to show the house to their clients, and offered sage advice and guidance throughout the purchasing process.
She also designed a multi-faceted marketing approach to selling my existing home. With her help, and unflagging optimism, my house was under agreement within 3 weeks.
Amanda consulted me and listened to me though out these transactions and handled many of the details for me. Her professionalism, honesty and years of experience were very helpful. I have, and will continue to, recommend her to my friends.
Quite unplanned and unexpectedly my husband and I found our dream house without any forethought to buying a new home or selling our existing home. Amanda, as the Seller's list agent, ethically found us a neutral agent real time so we could make an offer and provided us names of mortgage brokers so we could quickly get pre-approved. We were able to make an offer the same day as we saw the dream house. That timing was the critical event as we were not the only offer that day. Our offer was accepted and had we not made it that day we would have lost the house. We did not hesitate to then list our house with Amanda who worked tirelessly to sell it during the slow holiday season. Her connections in the real estate community allowed her to work closely with our buyer's agent and come to a sales agreement that left us all happy and feeling good about the entire experience. I cannot speak highly enough about her work ethic, commitment to her clients and her ethical approach.
I was so fortunate to meet Amanda at the very first house that I ever looked at in Swampscott. It was her listing and she was so knowledgeable and honest about the home and the sellers that I immediately felt comfortable. She took me under her wing and showed me around the town. Not only did she show me the houses for sale, she introduced me to people, showed me the best back roads during "rush hour," Amanda even took the time to show my daughter the practice fields, beaches, and where to get the best ice cream! Amanda was so patient with my limited budget and my idea of a dream home...and 18+ homes later after 4 months of open houses, getting lost, a 109 degree day for the home inspection, and endless clover necklaces...she still came to the closing with a gorgeous Home Sweet Home dragon pillow for my daughter and a cook book for me. I am so thankful to her, Amanda made my dreams come true in so many ways.
Moving can be hectic and stressful on a family. We thought it would be a tough market to sell our house, but Amanda got us several offers in a short time. She took the time to communicate with us, even when we were on vacation. She helped us find the perfect house for our family. She was easy to contact, very responsive and extremely supportive. We never plan to move again, but if we did, we'd call Amanda.
Amanda assisted us in our search and eventual purchase of a multi-unit investment property. Her knowledge of the market, the area and her report with the listing agent greatly contributed to us getting into to see and then purchasing a cash flow positive property that we could now re-sell for substantially more than we paid for it. Amanda was the consummate professional throughout the process, including helping us find an affordable home inspector to go through properties and give us an accurate understanding of the renovations they would need. Thanks Amanda, we couldn't be happier!
