Amanda is an outstanding agent who always had our best interests at the forefront of whatever she did. As a former math teacher, she was excellent at the numbers side of purchasing a home. Her teaching background also gave her a lot of insight into the schools and neighborhoods in and around the Greater Asheville/Western Carolina region. She also has a very keen eye for value in a hot market. Here abilities and energy far surpassed our expectations.
But the thing we really valued the most in working with Amanda was what I started this review with: she ALWAYS had our best interests in mind in whatever she did. For example, there was a home we were being emotional about and willing to overpay for and Amanda was very calm and professional in talking us down from an emotional decision that would have been horrible for us but good for her (she would have received a larger commission).
I have always heard that most agents are working for a commission, not for you. That is the farthest thing from the truth with Amanda. She is professional, knowledgeable, personable, and so helpful. She takes her obligations as an agent (i.e., someone who represents the best interests of someone else in a position of trust) very seriously. She went above and beyond to help us find the home of our dreams and we could not be more grateful for her help.
