Amanda started her career in the Real Estate Industry in 2016 as a Realtor at Marsh Landing Country Club Realty, on the Childers Real Estate Team. In her first year, she helped the team close $6 million in sales and had the opportunity to work with various types of transactions ranging from a million-dollar ocean front beach condo, to a HUD owned property with a renovation loan in Atlantic Beach.
She is excited to launch her new real estate brand “Closing Deals in Heels,” which will combine real estate and partnering with locally owned woman stores to promote shopping local. Each quarter she will partner with a different locally owned store to feature monthly discounts to the store and a sip and shop event. During that quarter, Amanda will also do an in-depth real estate market overview of the part of town the store is located in including features on listings and open houses.
Residing in Jacksonville since 2009, Amanda brings with her a wealth of knowledge of the greater Jacksonville area. In her previous job with the United States Tennis Association, Amanda had the opportunity to work closely with more than 30 country clubs in Duval, St. Johns, Nassau, and Clay County giving her an excellent background on real estate and housing in these niche communities.
Amanda also spent four years working for the Wounded Warrior Project, planning Soldier Ride, a 5-day adaptive cycling event for wounded warriors that uses cycling and the bonds of service for warriors to overcome physical, mental, and emotional wounds incurred post 9/11. Amanda will be using her experience working with veterans to help local veterans sell or buy their next home. She recognizes the sacrifice they have made for our country and wants them to experience the best customer service possible.
Amanda, a native of Lakeville, Pennsylvania, grew up playing competitive tennis. She graduated from the College of Charleston where she played on a full athletic tennis scholarship. Amanda tributes her many hours spent on the tennis court to her personality traits that have given her success in life. Hard work, motivation, drive to succeed, self-discipline, positive attitude, and good sportsmanship are all things she learned on the court and can now be applied to her professional career.
The City of Jacksonville noticed this work ethic in Amanda when in 2011 she was honored by Jacksonville’s, Buzz Magazine, as one of the “Top 30 Under 30 – Future Leaders of America” and in 2010 was honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at “Jacksonville’s Finest,” an event that honors young business professionals that have helped make a difference in the fight to cure cystic fibrosis. Amanda also previously served on the board of IMPACTjax, the Chamber of Commerce’s Young Professional Organization and is still involved with the organization. Amanda likes to spend her free time teaching spin and group fitness classes, taking her puppy to the dog park, playing tennis and golf, and volunteering at her church.
