★★★★★                                                           "We recently had the pleasure of working with Amanda Briggs in purchasing a home in DC. The experience was truly positive from start to finish and we highly recommend anyone looking for a realtor to strongly consider her.

Amanda is the consummate professional. She provided outstanding service and thoughtful insight, all with genuine kindness. In our search for an investment property, Amanda was patient as we explored different neighborhoods, candid in her impressions of homes we toured, and shared valuable insight in terms of both neighborhoods and home sales. We found her sense of aesthetics and ability to reimagine a space invaluable as we contemplated renovations to the properties. She was always responsive and quick to meet deadlines.

There are plenty of realtors to choose from in DC, but what we think sets Amanda apart is not just how knowledgeable she is, but the level of customer service she offers her clients. Amanda was always willing to meet with little notice and made herself available when we needed a sounding board to think through options. When we encountered unexpected delays to our closing due to factors impacting our seller, Amanda zealously advocated on our behalf, listened to our concerns, reviewed pros and cons of different approaches, and in the end skillfully helped us reach terms that accounted for the delays.

We could not be happier having chosen Amanda and highly recommend her. She is the friend and professional you want to have on your side when making one of the biggest decisions in your life."

★★★★★                                "Amanda and I have been working together for over a year, as I am preparing to put my house on the market. She was extremely patient, as I was deciding, where I wanted to live. Amanda kept me informed of programs that were available through Compass that would make the process of selling home easier on me. In June, we listed my property and it was sold in 4 days! Amanda was always available, updating me and providing and I will be referring friends and family who are interested in selling to Amanda! Also, I consider Amanda a friend as well, she’s wonderful." – Dwight A.

"Amanda provided wonderful service. She was extraordinarily responsive and personable. As first time home buyers, Amanda taught us about the process and helped us feel comfortable. We would highly recommend Amanda for all those looking to buy or sell!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Amanda on the sale of my Parent's home as well as my Sister's. Amanda was extremely professional with regards to appointments, returning calls, suggestions for making the home more salable and securing needed assistance in getting the home ready for market. If there were problems she was there to provide assistance and smooth the way. The advertising of the homes and MLS listing presented the homes attractively both of the homes sold for over asking price. If you are considering selling your home, I would highly recommend Amanda and I feel you will be pleasantly surprised at what she can do for you."

"Amanda was great to work with when selling our condo in Capitol Hill! She had an understanding of the neighborhood, values, and market better than anybody else.

"Amanda helped us with our first house sale, and by 'helped us,' I mean she took care of EVERYTHING. No matter what the issue was, no matter the time of day, Amanda was right on top of it the whole way through. Our house sold in the first weekend and we could not be happier. If you're selling your house and can get Amanda on your team, do it. You can't go wrong."
- Matt N.

"We truly enjoyed working with Amanda and her team! She was totally "in" when it came to meeting our needs on the sake of our home. We handed the house over to the team and they took care of all the prep needed to get the sale we wanted and the whole process took less than a month. We were impressed!"
- June S.

"Our house had a TOPA issue that delayed the sale. Our agent, Amanda Briggs, was helpful getting us the legal counsel needed to navigate this issue and was patient as we did so. She had a buyer for us immediately after the TOPA issue as resolved."
