    My Client Testimonials

    Excellent work, very professional! Fantastic!!! Highly recommended ~ Philip Fulmer
    If you're looking for an amazing Real Estate agent - I highly recommend Amanda Staines. She is an expert in her field, really patient in answering questions or concerns, easily available, integrous, and pleasant to work with. Not only did she help me sell my last home, but she's helping me purchase my next one...wouldn't want anyone else in my corner! ~ SB Honeycutt
    Amanda walked us through the very difficult process of selling our home of 20 years. She took great care to explain every step of the process and was patient with us as we navigated 38 offers on our home. She is a consummate real estate professional and a one of a kind person. ~ Richard and Jennipher Mace
    We interviewed a lot of other agents before we met Amanda. A couple of them seemed OK, but none really stood out. We were out looking at houses one day and happened to visit one where Amanda was the site agent. Within a few minutes she understood what we were looking for and provided detailed information none of the previous agents had bothered with. My wife and I both immediately agreed that she was our choice for the sale of our existing home, as well as assisting us with the purchase of a new one. ~ Ted Roberts, Canton GA
    I worked with Amanda in the purchase of my home, so when it came time to sell it, i didn't even think. I already knew who the best was. I called her up and within days she had a full market analysis, recommended pricing and marketing plan in place. Amanda is amazing! She works tirelessy for her clients and delivers in spades on her commitments. She went above an beyond to make sure that my house sold as quickly as possible and at the price I wanted. I listed the house on 11/11 (going into the holiday season) and we closed on 2/11. She never stopped showing right through the holidays- unbelievable dedication. We had a tricky situation with our buyer's financing that caused a few delays. Amanda's experience and knowledge gave her the ability skillfully navigate those waters and push the sale through in record time. She never stopped advocating for me made sure the deal was done at full asking and on time...I wouldn't want anyone else negotiating on my behalf in that situation. On a more persoanl note, I had two cats and a dog to contend with while showing. Amanda was great at reminding the agents to be mindful of the cats, even putting little signs at each entrance reminding them to not let them out. She would sit near the kennel with my dog during open houses and pet her to keep her calm when there were crowds. Not every agent does those things. Amanda truly cares about her clients. She listens, advises, educates when needed, and makes it a personal mission to take care of you throughout the process. She's the perfect package of personality, kindess, and shrewd negotiator all rolled into one! ~ A. Johnston, Cumming
    Amanda Staines did an excellent job on getting our house sold at the price we anted. Although the sale wasnt without a few hiccups, Amanda made the process as smooth as it could be. ~ Peggy Robertson, West Forsyth county
    Amanda Staines did an excellent job with the sale and purchase of our home. She was very familiar with the area, gave us options that we had not considered, and was able to get us in the area we wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Thank you Amanda! ~ Peggy Robertson, Johns Creek
    Amanda goes above and beyond for her clients and managed the sale of my property with the highest level of professionalism and knowledge. She is absolutely a dream when it comes to get a property ready and sold. Amanda is absolutely amazing!! Amanda makes sure she handles all aspects of the sale, allowing me to focusing on my personal duties. ~ Ian Davis Memphis TN
    If you are looking at buying/selling a home, I highly recommend Amanda Staines! She was in OUR corner through it all! More than anything, we appreciated that she was honest with us, with the good or bad. She never tried to push us to spend more, or lead us in another direction from our needs. She was patient and detail-oriented, and very knowledgeable about all aspects of home buying/selling. She was AWESOME all around! ~ D. Watson, Alpharetta
    Amanda Staines is hands down the best person to work with when buying or selling a home. She has helped me with both including recently buying a home for my parents who relocated to the area. She is so knowledgeable, caring, patient, timely and attentive. my husband and I built our home and she was there with us every step of the way and recently when my parents needed a home, she knew I had my eye on a particular neighborhood where homes rarely become available and when one did, she notified me right away and made herself available within a couple of hours to go and view the home. There were already many people interested in the home and my parents fell in love with it. We said please get them this home, and she did. She is truly amazing, and trust me, I am not easy to please. I wouldn't think of having anyone other than Amanda help me through the process of buying or selling a home in the future. I don't think there are many agents that would care as much as she does about making her clients happy. She is one of a kind and I am so grateful to her. ~ Kerrie Porter, Cumming GA
    Amanda Staines is simply outstanding! Her marketing plan resulted in multiple bids above our asking price, all from qualified buyers... We couldn't have asked for a better experience from listing to closing! ~ Johnny & Becky Cobb, Alpharetta, GA
    Amanda Staines is the best real estate agent. Her knowledge and understanding is unsurpassed. During the selling/buying process it felt like she was more a part of our family than just another agent. I will highly recommend Amanda to my family and friends. Thanks Amanda!

    Worked previously with Miss Amanda and she is without a doubt, amazing! I have also referred her to many persons as she has the knowledge, personality, Professionalism you do NOT see with other agents. From start to finish, she walks people through every step of the way. I've already told her she's never allowed to retire because I'll need her for my next move ;). Seriously she is the ONLY one I would ever want to work with again. ~ Cathy N., Milton GA
    Amanda knew what we wanted and how the market was going! Her recommendations were spot on! She works to get a house sold and even helped us with how to go about selling our entire contents in the house! She was a gem to work with! ~ Eileen and Ben Bayanati Cumming, GA
    Amanda's marketing, virtual tour, and hands-on materials for our home was exceptional, and she even volunteered and took the time to do a virtual tour (with music) to showcase the furniture we couldn't take with us and needed to sell. It was done beautifully and professionally. We got top dollar for our home because of the excellent job she did for us. ~ James and Priscilla Berry, Cumming, Georgia
    Another amazing job. Handled all the details even the unconventional. That's 5! ~ Paul Cumming, Ga

Always reachable for any questions or concerns we had along the way. Very cautious and understanding of our budget and needs. We were able to find the perfect house for our little family quickly, and closed less then 2 months after starting the process. We cannot thank amanda enough for everything! ~ Morgan huskins, Gainesville ga

    I could not be any happier about my experience working with Amanda. Her knowledge of the area and her ability to work with the buyer made this a remarkably easy experience. We had a few hurdles thrown at us that delayed the closing, and Amanda was quick to help. She worked with the buyer while we addressed the issues and ultimately we had a successful close. Amanda's availability, communication, and candor made this a very enjoyable and easy sale. I would recommend her without question to anyone looking to buy or sell in the market. ~ Aaron King
    Amanda Staines was phenomenal! She was knowledgeable, understanding and at the same time respectful of our needs and decisions. She selected houses for us to look at that met most of our requirements, so we did not waste any time when looking at houses. The communication was always quick and accurate.

    Amanda was referred to our family when we started looking to purchase a home. And am I glad she was!! We had no idea the journey we were about to face. If not for Amanda and her knowledge in the industry, we would have been lost! And probably not have the home we have today. We purchased a short sale home. Yes, My husband and I were skeptical at first. We had never purchased a short sale or foreclosure. And let me tell you.....Amanda was faced with about every obstacle there was with this one. I am not a patient person and would call Amanda often with questions. Or just to vent. Looking back now, I don't know how she put up with me. But she did. She was always honest and would give me correct advice. Every time she would put my mind at ease. All the way up until the closing was over. I really don't know how she does it! If you are looking for a reliable, honest, caring, knowledgeable, knows what they are doing Real Estate Agent...Look no further than Amanda Staines. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Due to several life changes I was in a hurry to relocate, Amanda was able to find the perfect home for my family. She introduced me to a fantastic mortgage broker and held my slightly complicated deal together till closing. Jeff, Buying Client 2014
    Amanda was amazing throughout the process of selling and buying our homes. She is extremely knowledgeable, attentive and responsive. We had a very challenging situation with the building of our new home and Amanda was there for us every step of the way. She handled the communication with the builders/agents and took care of issues that should have been handled by the builder. I have never experienced such dedication and commitment from previous agents I've worked with in the past. She truly cares and takes her job very seriously. She took the time to get to know us and understand what our needs are. She wasn't afraid to give her opinion which I greatly appreciated. Everyone throughout the process, including our personal family and friends, were amazed at how well rounded she is and how much valuable input she was able to provide. She was always willing to look at other options and was quick to pick up the phone whenever we had concerns with the builder. She went so above and beyond what would be considered her role in this process, and for that we are so grateful. To give you just a few examples, at our closing she provided us with all of the products needed to seal our grout and tile, sponges, cloths, etc. She came to all of our meetings with the contractors, design center and walk through. She even went to the inspection for us when we couldn't get off of work. If you are looking to buy or sell your home, she should be the only person you call, and I sincerely mean that! Kerrie and Brad, Buyer Client 2014
