Understanding what is important...
Finding the right Realtor to represent you can be tricky. Like any important decision it is imperative to know an agent's track record. When people say, "what other people think of you is none of your business." Well, I have to disagree--it is completely my business. I’ve had the highest customer satisfaction rating in the company for the past four years—and strive to provide first-class service for each and every client.
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!
The Watson’s, Buyer Client 2017
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.
The Cook Family, Buyer Client 2017
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!
The Cobb Family, Seller 2017
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! Lady loves her new back yard!

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.

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!
11th June, 2016
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.

Amanda was a joy to work with. She managed to make a stressful experience virtually painless. We were first time homebuyers so she made sure we fully understood what was going on at each step. 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!

13th August, 2015
Amanda Staines is hands down the best Real Estate Professional I have ever worked with (I have bought and sold numerous homes). She was patient with me as I was not quite ready to sell and buy when we first connected. She was VERY professional, business savvy and truly partnered with me to prepare my home for sale and then to go out and find the "right" home for me and my daughter. I would - and have many times now recommended her to friends and business colleagues. We need more like her out in the field!

Amanda made the experience fun & positive! She relaxed us & made the process positive! Her area knowledge was remarkable!!
29th July, 2015
Amanda was perfect. She listened to us, was never pushy, kept a balanced opinion of the pros and cons of the homes we considered and was supportive every step of the way in our home search. Amanda's ability to communicate clearly is second to none. We never felt like we were going it alone because she was always very prompt and insightful with feedback and answers to our questions.
10th July, 2015
Amanda was spot on with every suggestion she gave us, and she went the extra mile in providing a true first-class customer service. she is an excellent communicator, and we never once felt like we were going through the selling process alone. Amanda was perfect for us and we perfect for her in that we followed her guidance in every respect. There were absolutely no failures in communication (we emailed almost everyday and she responded promptly). This open line of communication was extremely important to us because we were first-time home sellers.
10th July, 2015
Amanda Staines was amazing. Selling my home was one thing but she really handled a difficult closing very well. She expertly handled changes in financing and delays from every direction and kept everything on track.
27th June, 2015
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.

Jocelyn Sotomayor, Cumming GA
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. I felt that she had our well being at heart at all times. There was a day that an agent showed up to look at our house without having informed her. Amanda was not happy about this and immediately took action. I would recommend Amanda Staines to anyone because she really knows what she is doing, she is on top of things and she takes great care of her clients.
20th February, 2015
Amanda was extremely helpful from beginning to end. She priced house property correctly allowing us to get top dollar for house. She kept us informed throughout the process and helped us immensely with inspection items. She actually helped us clean the house and garage on day of closing. Would highly recommend Amanda to anyone wanting to sell their home.

We would recommend Amanda to anyone desiring to sell or buy a home in the north Atlanta region.

Richard Earp, Seller Client 2013
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!!

Seller Client 2012
Amanda provided valuable advice in preparing our home for sale. Her marketing strategy involved an excellent presentation of our house as well as the large property. She exhibited extraordinary fortitude through a challenging transaction. She maintained a warm professional attitude even going the "Second Mile" on our behalf. We will always appreciate her good humor and friendliness in times that tried her patience as well as ours. We highly recommend Amanda for her excellent personal and knowledgeable service as a realtor.
The Wetzlers, Seller Client 2013

I went to high school with Amanda and have known her for many years. Her skill in navigating tough transactions is unmatched.
