2024 looking good for my buyer! This transaction went smooth at first, then rocky then smooth again! 🎢

Here’s how it went down:

1-My buyer needed to sell his Florida property in order to buy this one. ☀️

2-We were able to negotiate that into this offer which was great! 🎉

3-His FL house went under contract shortly after (yay!) but a couple weeks in, his buyer had to back out due to financing 🫠

4-My buyer and his FL agent put his property BACK on the market where it sat for a while. 😰

5-We thought we might have to pull out of this house, but we made it work and thanks to great agent teamwork between all 3 of us (and patient buyer and seller) we all pulled it off!

6-Now the saga is over 😆 and Buyer is now an Owner in the great state of VA!

Cheers to 2024 and new beginnings! 🎉 🏡

Well now I’m blushing! 😊 I really love what I do and reviews like this make it all worth while! I loved working with these clients and are so thankful for their trust in me. Hope they enjoy that new home (with a new roof paid for by the sellers 😉🤗 )!!

Overpriced home prices are so last year 😝💁‍♀️. Like every trend, though, you can easily find a handful still hanging out on the market — but only if you know what to look for. 

Here is how I spot inflated home prices for my buyers so that you can feel great about the house you’re getting and the price you’re paying for it!

1) Get cozy with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). 

A CMA is THE best way to determine a house's fair market value. These compare recent sales of similar properties nearby to paint a picture of what homes are currently selling for. Keyword here? CURRENTLY

2) Check the time on the market. ⏰

A property that’s been sitting on the market for a while may indicate an inflated price. Well-priced homes attract interest — and sell — quickly.

3) Appraisal vs. listing price. 📝

You’ll be well into the buying process before the appraisal comes back, but it’s critical in confirming a property's value. If the appraisal comes in lower than the listed price, it's a serious red flag.

4) It’s what’s on the inside that counts 🥰

Does the home have a shiny, new kitchen, or is it stuck in the 90s? Interior and exterior upgrades can add or subtract from a home’s value. If things don’t add up, it’s time to ask some questions. 

5) There’s no crying in pricing (or, at least, there shouldn't be). 😢

Sometimes (oftentimes), sellers get attached to their homes, leading to “emotional pricing” - pricing based on data AND sentimental value. Have compassion, but negotiate with your CMA in hand to avoid paying more than you should.

If you have questions about this or are wondering if any home you’re looking at is overpriced, send me a DM!

I was not the first agent that tried to sell this house…

It was listed in the Fall with one low offer on it until eventually it expired! Then this year I took it over, we STAGED it and did some small updates and boom 💥 yesterday it sold and closed!

Hillcrest Farms is a lovely neighborhood! These sellers spent many years in this home where their children grew up and so many memories were made! I’m so excited for the next sweet family to do the same!

I drove by my sons school the other day and they were having field day and having so much fun. Then I immediately remembered my field days as a kid and I can’t think about field day and not think of my mom!

Every year in elementary school, my mom would come and teach the electric slide to the kids as one of the events. I thank this woman for my love of an organized dance. Think Cupid shuffle, the wobble and line dancing (my mom and I took a session of line dancing classes together one time in a barn ❤️💃👯‍♀️) If you know me a little bit, then you know this about me 😆.

I need to thank her for so much more though and setting the example of being an amazing mom. She showed up for me (in field day and in life), still shows up for me, is the best listener I’ve ever met, and truly such a kind and patient person.

I pray that my kids know one day that I showed up for them in life(even if I can’t make it to field days sometimes and according to them I don’t let them play their iPad enough 🙃) and always will, just like their Nana did for me! And their Nana still does for them too!

Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful mom . Thank you for loving me so well!

🇺🇸Today is Military Spouse Appreciation Day and I have to shoutout this amazing breed of humans! 🇺🇸

This is a group of women and men who will bring you meals when you’re a new mom OR
-be there for you when you have to put your dog down
-watch your kid while you take your other kid to the ER (I speak from experience)
-spend their Thanksgiving with you because it’s too expensive to fly home (we’ve had countless super fun Friendsgivings)
-cry with you when “halfway” turns into just a third of the way (IYKYK)
-cry with you again because solo parenting is freaking hard sometimes (especially after 7 months into a deployment)!
-cry with you once again over a HOMECOMING. (We all live for each other’s homecoming photos…they are priceless and happy tear inducing).
-laugh with you after one (or four) glasses of wine (Tipsy Tuesdays, you know who you are 💗)

And I could go on all day…

🇺🇸There aren’t enough characters in the Instagram world to talk about the military spouses in my life and how I’ve been blessed by each one of them. These people endure international/national moves and everything that comes with that (buying homes, actually moving, making new friends, leaving family, ETC), long stints of time without their loved one, plenty of nights worrying about said loved ones and many other sacrifices over and over again. 🇺🇸

But with that, WE as spouses have more of an opportunity to create lasting, strong, “we just get each other” Friendships. And for that I would never ever ever change this military life we live.

Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day to all those spouses out there, past and present, who are “serving” in their own way. Y’all are just flat out awesome.
I would love to hear about how a military spouse has blessed you! Please share in the comments 💗

👋👋 Hi! Did you know there’s no better time than now to prepare your home for the market…even if your ideal listing timeline is months away. ⁣

Here’s why (I love a good list):

1. Life is unpredictable. Plans change sometimes! Getting your home ready now means you’ll be ready to list your home no matter what life throws at you.⁣

2. It’ll reduce your stress. It’s no fun to frantically get your home ready to sell -- the cleaning, decluttering, and repairing alone can be overwhelming. With time on your side, it's totally manageable. ⁣

3. You won’t miss anything. In a seller's market, you can sell a home in lived-in condition usually without a problem. But in a buyer's market, repairs can make or break a sale. Getting your home ready little by little means every inch of your home will be in top-notch shape the second your listing goes live.⁣

Have questions about any of this?! I’d love to help -- hit me up!

Swipe for a very BROWN before…

I quickly snapped a kitchen pic before the kids got up this morning to just take a second to appreciate how far our home has come! Thank goodness we could envision the finished product because the product we bought back in 2020 did us no favors with that 🫣

I like talking about our reno. I always say it’s a great underdog story. The bones were good, the value was there and we just had to go through the trouble of the renovation 😂 But boy oh boy was it worth it!

If you are considering a home that needs a little love but are unsure if you are up for it or you have it in your budget or if its a smart investment, shoot your questions my way and I can help out!

Hi, my name is Amanda and I don’t always hold my phone this way, but when I do, I’m taking photos for Instagram. 🤪

I am a military spouse, a mom of two boys, and a realtor at Berkshire Hathaway. I love talking about real estate, funny things my kids do or say, and what I’m going to eat next or cook next.

I like being busy, loving on my people (to include family, friends and clients, but I consider all clients my friends and family anyway) and a good happy hour.

Real estate fires me up and I love how no two transactions are the same!

Thank you for hanging out with me in my little corner of the internet! If you or your friends have any real estate questions or need help buying or selling. I’m your girl!

I have an 8 year old and I don’t get how this happened. He’s an avid reader AND video game player. He’s a gentle giant and knows how to warm my heart in a heartbeat. He eats just as much as his Dad and lets me know when I make a tasty meal. Becoming a mom rocked my world but he is worth it times a million. When I was younger, I always said I wanted to be a boy mom and being this dudes mom just makes sense to me now! Happy Birthday, Jack ❤️

When I first found out about the Ready Room Project, I got teary reading about this organization online!

Military children are resilient, strong, and resourceful. They go for long periods of time without one of their parents and have to quickly learn to adapt and change. I have two of these military kids and they impress me!

I knew I wanted to partner with The Ready Room Project at some point so here we are! Swipe through to see how you can help give back to the kids that go to the Child Development Center and Youth Center at NAS Oceana ❤️🇺🇸

Message me with any questions! I’ll come get the books from you also! If you can’t make the drop off party, I’ll come scoop them up from you!

🏕️I’ll take Summer Camps for 100, Alex!

If you have a kid, then Hampton Roads has a summer camp for them! 🏕️

This is not an exhaustive list but I hope this helps you in your search for a camp for your kids! Whatever their flavor of the week is then I’m guessing you can find a camp for that!

Cannot believe that we are thinking of summer camps over here! There is something special about the chill-ness of summer and trying some new camps for the kids to get them out and about.

This summer I’m going to try to balance organized time with unorganized time for the kids to allow for plenty of pool days and beach days and chill days. But also have a place for them to go so my realtor mom self doesn’t combust 🤣

May the odds be ever in your favor, friends! Let me know which camps you’re going with!! (I still need to sign mine up 🫠)

As soon as we went under contract with this transaction, it seemed like we had hurdle after hurdle to leap over! Inspections, PICRAs, contingencies, and walkthroughs OH MY! Some are easy, y’all but some just aren’t. It’s my job as your agent to keep cool 😎 and positive and thankfully that paid off here! These buyers are now super happy in their forever home and I love going to visit to see all the progress they have made ❤️

Well this one sure does make me smile! For this transaction, the sellers lived out of town and were selling their rental property. We worked together to freshen up the space with some easy cosmetic changes and it scored the sellers an over ask sales price. 👊👊 And it all was done via phone calls and videos. This one was special because I so appreciate the trust the sellers put in me to make it happen while they lived in Florida! THANK YOU!

Some slightly unconventional tips for moving with kids…

Cross country trips, packing and uprooting your life may not be at the top of your favorite kid activities but it’s a necessary evil for so many of us. Here are some tips to help you get by!

📦 1-Involve Your Kids in the Planning & Decorating. Ask them how they want to decorate their new room, pick out a rug (with options you like of course), or where you will have your first meal out in your first city.

📦2-Label Toy Boxes Specifically upon moving out. Unless it’s your idea of fun to open every toy box to find Catboy at the bottom of the last one. 🤗

📦3-Keep large packing boxes for forts and playhouses. This one never gets old.

📦4-“Lose” some toys during the move. Maybe this is too harsh of me, but No, I’m sorry love, the movers lost your megaphone.

📦5-Stay Positive (and give everyone grace). Our kids feed off of our energy. If you are excited about your move then they are more likely to be excited too.

New Year, same ol me! 🤣 I lovvvve the freshness of a new year. But this mostly has to do with the fact that while I had such a wonderful holiday season (I hope you did too!), I’m just glad to be back in a routine. I feel this way about most every Monday of the year as well 🙌 (or Tuesday in this case).

This year will be a different kind of year for me as my husband’s work schedule is changing. So no big resolutions or declarations this year but I will try to be the best mom I can be to my two boys (and girl, Shine) and be the best realtor and friend I can be to all of you lovely people ❤️ (I might try to clean out my email and put up the laundry in a timely manner too but I don’t want to get too crazy 😜)

I love love love my job and thank you to everyone that made 2022 the amazing year that it was. Y’all are all so freaking wonderful and getting to help y’all fills my bucket every day ❤️❤️ If you have some real estate goals you want to reach this year, you know where to find me! 😘😘😘

Tomorrow is the first official day of winter. Huh?! How that happened, I have NO CLUE!

Cold temps and a change in the season means we should get our homes Winter ready! So I’m giving you all my Winter Home Maintenance Checklist 👊

The Christmas crazies are in full effect, but hopefully soon you can knock out these quick and easy tips to get your home ready for the cold weather ahead (here are a few examples):

1. Change your air filters and adjust your thermostat.
2. Switch your ceiling fans to rotate clockwise.
3. Cover patio furniture and store removable cushions.
4. Disconnect exterior hoses from their spigots.
5. Buy ice melt to have on hand.

For the full list, click the link in my bio to download!

Happy first day of winter! What’s your favorite thing about the season? Mine is lounging around in my robe (I’m a warm weather gal truthfully 😜)! Share yours in the comments!
