Welcome to the Neighborhood Numbers:
What can I say...contacted Amy, she looked at the house, made a few suggestions, my wife and I took her suggestions. Once we completed those over the weekend, she took pictures the next week, proposed a listing price, listed the property and the first day on the market showed the house to two or three potential buyers. The next day we received an offer above what I had originally spoke with Amy about wanting for the house! Throughout the offer, inspections, and closing she responded within minutes to our calls, texts or emails. This Real Estate transaction was the smoothest I have had due to Amy's proactive approach to upcoming requirements. She kept us one step ahead of the game the whole transaction! Would recommend her to friends and family in a second! Thomas P. - Seller in Rockledge, FL
My wife and I moved from Texas to VIera, FL and Amy worked with us for several months before we arrived. She would send us listings and work with us with whatever we needed and helped us through every step. We were first time buyers and Amy covered everything. We had worked with other realtors in Texas before we knew we were moving to Florida and none compared to Amy. Even after the sale in November '14 she has stayed in touch with us and continues to help in any way she can. - Alan N. - Buyer in Suntree
My wife and I have worked with Amy for about 2 yrs. We have had interactions with other realtors and would consider Amy the best realtor we have worked with. I have high expectations of our realtor in the forms of timely follow up, returned phone calls or text messages, going above and beyond what we have asked for, providing honest feedback on various choices and having the highest level of integrity. Amy has met or exceeded my expectations. Amy is knowledgeable on searching, price valuations, communities, new developments, and other features that may impact a decision such as new stores, schools, communities and lifestyle. We have worked with Amy on 2 transactions and would not hesitate to use her for any future transactions. David H - Buyer and Seller in Viera, FL
Amy was a delight to work with! She was always available when I had questions or wanted to view a home. She helped me find the perfect house! If I am ever in the market to buy or sell again I will definitely call Amy. - Georgia B.- Buyer in Melbourne, FL
She is very professional and has thorough knowledge in residential real estate properties. my home buying experience was hassle free and also learnt lot of fundamentals in the real estate because of Amy. I wish her all the best and highly recommend for any new home buyer or seller - Hemanth K. - Buyer in Rockledge, FL
Amy was extremely helpful in finding the kind of home we were looking for. She worked many hours to meet both our needs as well as the potential sellers. She walked us through each step, provided suggestions and (at times) recommendations during the bidding process. We found Amy to be extremely professional and dedicated to helping us find, purchase, and close on our home. We highly recommend Amy for all your real estate needs - whether that be selling, buying, or renting! You won't be disappointed! - Socrates S. - Buyer in Viera, FL
Amy is the most patient, and helpful agent we have ever had. With my husbands job we have had to move around the country, and have been scammed a few times, but with Amy she is nothing but honest. She helped us find what we were looking for, and what we needed as a family. Thank you Amy, for being you. - Terri G. - Buyer in Satellite Beach, FL
Amy helped us with the renting of a condo and selling our primary home; also is helping us buying a home. She is very patient and not "pushy", always available either by text, voice call or email, and ready to show houses, find information or just to give an opinion. I recommend her 100% - Jose M. - Buyer in Viera, FL
Choosing a realtor is one of the most important decisions you can make when buying or selling a home. While I found Amy by chance, she exceeded every expectation or hope that I have had in a realtor. Amy took the time to understand what we were looking for and paired this with her extensive knowledge of the area to help us find the perfect home. She worked for us day and night, answered every question we had (within minutes - not days) and accommodated every request. Amy is a treasure both as a person and as a realtor and I would recommend her to anyone (and everyone!) who is hoping to buy or sell a home in this area. - Connie S. - Buyer in Viera, FL
Amy is an amazing realtor. I have never met a realtor who works so hard while being so patient. We have bought several homes from Amy, and I have to say would never deal with another realtor other then her. Her patience, due diligence, honesty, and kindness, is amazing. Twice, Amy has also rented a home for us, and had it rented in a matter of days. - Eric G. - Buyer in Viera, FL
Pleasure working with Amy. From the moment we met her, we knew she would be wonderful. Amy was packing up for the evening when my family walked in. Some might be annoyed or tell us she would contact us at a later time, not Amy. With a smile on her face, she immediately started our search. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the schools. She addressed all our questions, concerns and provided us with great contacts. Due to our distance, Amy was our eyes and ears. She would go to the property and meet with contractors and the seller's realtor when we were unable to do so. We felt very comfortable working with her. She is a great realtor and a very nice person. - Denise P. - Buyer in Melbourne, FL
