"very informative, understanding of our needs, and mindful of our price range"
My partner and I had wanted to purchase a house for many years. Every few months we'd start looking at places, then quickly become overwhelmed, and pause our search for another few months. We met a lot of agents and while many of them seemed good enough, we never felt comfortable enough to work with one and commit to buying a place, until we met Amanda. When we first met her, we spoke for only 10 minutes, but in that time we learned that Amanda was very informative, understanding of our needs, and mindful of our price range. We knew we wanted to continue the conversation more seriously about looking for a house. We met with Amanda for about an hour some time later and learned so much about the process of buying, we knew that we found the right agent for us. Amanda is a San Francisco native and knows the city very well. We talked a lot about our preferences for a new house, and even though we felt our expectations were high, she always made us feel like we'd find exactly what we were looking for. With that information she began suggesting properties for us to look at. And she took a hands-on approach to scoping out houses - she picked us up at our apartment, drove us around the city, and even brought snacks from Tartine on several occasions. Amanda knows a lot about houses, and can spot all sorts of issues before even seeing the disclosures. We went to many open houses with her and she made observations with uncanny accuracy, like a TV detective. And we learned a lot because of that - like what questions to ask about the house, about the previous owners, and what parts of the house to pay special attention to. Being a San Francisco native, Amanda also has a very strong sense of community and has chosen to work with agencies that are also community-minded. She's even committed to donating a portion of her commission to charities of her clients' choice. We didn't know this about working with her upfront, but based on her personality it didn't surprise us one bit! If you have questions about buying or selling, or are on the fence about getting started, I sincerely suggest you give Amanda an hour of your time and you'll see why working with the right person can make all the difference. In the future we hope to work with Amanda again, and we'll be recommending her to a lot of San Franciscans.

"Amanda is honest, down-to-earth, approachable, professional, fun, friendly, super-communicative & responsive"
Amanda helped us very green first-time buyers buy our first condo in the crazy SF market. Amanda is honest, down-to-earth, approachable, professional, fun, friendly, super-communicative & responsive, and at the end of the day, actually cares about you as a person, not as just another number or client. She is a great listener and very quickly found out our style and gave us numerous matches that fit our needs perfectly. She has a lot of attention to detail and has an uncanny knack for figuring out preferences and values. Unlike many other brokers that we met, she was not pushy at all, and helped us take our time in finding the place that we love. Also, she was born & raised in San Francisco, and owns her own home in SF, so she knows what's up. She demystified the crazy process of putting in multiple bids and perfectly and smoothly guided us through what to do when and how. Moreover, she literally (not figuratively, literally) saved us thousands of dollars when she intuitively made us lower our bid, but still won the place -- most other brokers will tell you to overbid and will not be as honest with you. In short, Amanda is wonderful to work with and we got our dream house with her!
"She is hard working, so responsive to emails and very proactive"
We worked with Amanda for almost a year and have nothing but amazing things to say about her. She is hard working, so responsive to emails and very proactive. As a San Francisco native, I trusted her opinion since we were fairly new to SF. We have removed ourselves from the crazy SF market but when we are ready to buy, she will be our real estate agent.

"She is patient, genuine and easy to work with"
Amanda is amazing! She is patient, genuine and easy to work with. She took the time to get to know me and my situation. I consulted with her as a potential condo seller and though it was a favorable market, she could sense I wasn't ready and advised me to wait. I'm so glad I listened to her because it turned out to be the best decision for me and my family. She could have taken advantage of the situation and didn't, which says a lot about her and how she values people and relationships. I will definitely be going to her when I'm ready to sell (or buy!)

"Amanda is an incredible realtor"
5 stars is not enough! Amanda is an incredible realtor. She provided real insight and deep expertise to our home-buying process, helping us navigate a complex market to find our perfect home. We always felt she put 110% of herself into her work with us. Most importantly, we knew she was someone we could trust with our best interests. We enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"She is a true pleasure to work with"
Amanda is an amazing real estate agent. She is a true pleasure to work with, as she has her clients' best interests in mind. She is looking to build relationships, not just sell homes. She is a true partner in the real estate process. When I was looking to buy, she really listened to what I had to say and only showed me homes that fit my needs. She is incredibly thorough--she always found EVERY possibly option. When it was time to make a bid, Amanda was over the top supportive. She summarized the disclosures, helped me find a mortgage broker, and brought in her own contractor to review the property. Even though I looked for two years without buying, Amanda was always patient and her focus on my search never wavered. If you are looking for an agent to work with, choose Amanda. You will be glad that you did!
