What I Do"
THE SALE OF OUR HOME WAS OUT OF STATE & STILL AMANDA WAS REMARKABLE
While my family and I have known Amanda for many years (her legendary mom sold my parents their property more than 50 years ago!), I was completely unprepared for the scope of her incredible talent. Amanda is extremely knowledgeable and savvy about the market, with unerring instincts about the area and canny insights into people. But she is more than simply talented: Amanda is deeply thoughtful, kind (but tough, too, in all the right ways), and remarkably generous. She went out of her way, above and beyond, in every phase of our work together to make our lives smoother and easier. We were selling our home out of state and Amanda literally took care of everything that needed to be done -- things that would have necessitated extra time-consuming/labor-intensive trips for us to accomplish. She communicated with us daily, often multiple times a day, combining her warmth and kindness with a solid, reliable business sense. In short, she was a perfect advisor, guide, and colleague in a process which can be challenging (and even a little painful). I have only the highest praise for Amanda and would recommend her without a moment's hesitation -- my only regret is that, now that our house has been sold (with lightning speed and a phenomenal result), I won't get to talk with her every day. Amanda is, hands down, the best, most wonderful realtor I've ever worked with!

AMANDA DAMESEK IS PURE CLASS: SOLD MOM'S CONDO WITHIN 5 DAYS!
Amongst the multitude of Agents I could have selected I literally struck "Gold" when I chose Amanda. She made the entire process of selling my mom's posh condo, as if I was climbing a stairway to heaven every single second of the way. There wasn't a crack of downtime as she flawlessly handled every detail, to not only have the unit under contract within 5 days.... but to have every inspection and coordination with the attorney handled with PROMPT white glove excellence! I was in awe of the entire experience...not to mention how compassionate she was with my 90 yo mom who was downsizing from her cherished homestead. Amanda does not only wear her heart on her sleeve - she wears it as a gigantic radiant bubble the surrounds each players heart within the process. In short - Amanda is PURE JOY that works in express mode with the gentlest touch imaginable ... tears of JOY is what she evoked for me. I beyond highly recommend Amanda BAR NONE! 10 Stars!!!! With Love Jayne and Mimi.

Amanda is a fantastic real state agent. She is knowledgeable and reliable, and she looks out for her costumer best interests. She has assisted us with various real state transactions in Springfield (both as a buying and selling agent) and we were very pleased with her work.

We are highly respectful of her negotiating ability and her business integrity; her work is efficient and impeccable. She promptly responded to all our phone calls and texts messages and her answers to our questions and concerns were always correct and accurate. We recommend Amanda as a real state agent without reservation.

AMANDA IS EXCEPTIONALLY ACCESSIBLE & COMMUNICATES FREQUENTLY
Amanda was our seller's agent for our home of 21 years in Short Hills. She has a keen understanding of the market and what buyers are looking for, as well as what turns them off. What really sets her apart is that she is easily accessible and communicated frequently and effectively, whether the news was good, bad, indifferent, or directly or indirectly related to our goals. She provided every type of support throughout the process including selecting which upgrades/repairs to tackle and contractors to do them, emotional support, and dynamic marketing. It is without hesitation that we highly recommend Amanda.

IN HER HIGH HEELS AMANDA WAS SHOVELING OFF A DUSTING OF SNOW
I can highly recommend Amanda. She made selling my house a smooth experience. She guides you through every step and is always there for you. Amanda is not only knowledgeable but also efficient. During the process, she sets you up with people for inspections, estimates, staging, gardening etc. She informs you every time someone is coming and offers to be there if you cannot. One morning, right before an Open House, I found her, in high heels, shoveling off a dusting of snow. She is a smart negotiator as well. The house she sold for me, her mother, who was a realtor as well, helped us find 22 yrs ago. She taught her daughter well. Amanda is friendly, has integrity and is an all around terrific woman. You will be glad you chose HER!!

AMANDA PROMISE SHE WOULD OVERSEE EVERY ASPECT OF OUR SALE - AND SHE DID
Amanda came recommended to us from a friend to sell our mother's house. Amanda knew how hard it was for us to sell our childhood home and gave us personal attention. Amanda knew who to call for electrical work, for painting, for plumbing, for work for the driveway, etc. She promised that she would oversee every aspect of the sale, and we now joke with her that she is a member of the family. She lived up to her word. Amanda even made telephone calls regarding our home while she was on vacation. We highly recommend her.

AMANDA'S PERSONAL TOUCH SETS HER APART 10 FOLD
Our experience with Amanda was simply amazing. She made the process of moving to a new city/state so much easier and less stressful than we expected (and we’ve made 7 major moves in the past 15 years). Yes, she’s a great realtor. She knows the areas and market. But what truly set her apart was the personal touch she brought to the table. You can tell when someone is truly invested in your happiness and well being, as opposed to just wanting a sale...and Amanda most definitely was (and still is) there for us. Over the past 15 years, we’ve bought a fair number of homes...and Amanda is the best realtor we’ve ever had. Give her a call...you’ll be glad you did!

I CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW CALM AND EFFICIENT AMAMDA IS
Amanda helped us sell our house in Short Hills and purchase our new home close by. As we were moving out of the home where we lived while our kids went through elementary through high school, I had a lot of trepidation (as well as boxes :)! Amanda sensed that and helped us handle the physical and emotional toll of this move. Nothing was too small or too large for her to handle. She had a recommendation and fix for every issue that arose and never lost her calm during a process that can be anything but. While we've heard horror stories of houses languishing on the market, the whole process took just a few months. She held our hands during the months that we prepped to put the house on the market (and even helped us sort through our house) through showing the house, negotiating the contract, inspection and closing. I cannot emphasize enough what a calm, reassuring presence she provided and what a pleasure it was to work with her.
