"Amanda was the consummate representative. She walked me through renovating and then selling my apartment -- a process I'd been DREADING -- with ease and clarity. I was astonished at how effortless it was. Or at how effortless she made it all feel. On the buying end, she was always responsive, happy to talk, and full of advice. No matter how many places came and went and how many bids we lost or decisions we made, Amanda never pushed or cajoled. She allowed us to work at our own pace and was always there for us. From beginning to end, she was no-fuss, honest, helpful, and approachable. She was perfect." - Richard H.

"Amanda is a trusted advisor when it comes to any real estate related questions. She is highly professional, resourceful and very pleasant to work with. Amanda understood our investment needs and managed to source deals with insightful market knowledge. She stayed actively involved throughout the deal negotiation, execution as well as the seamless transformation into a highly sought after apartment." - Rose & Jimmy

"Amanda helped us find the perfect apartment in Brooklyn and we couldn't speak more highly of her. It was our first purchase and she was always there for us, and help to answer the myriad of questions we had and guided us through the daunting process of buying a place in NY. Amanda has it all. She is competent, friendly, communicative, honest, and we were incredibly lucky to work with her." - Leo and Morgan

"Amanda sets a high bar for professionalism and integrity that attracts dream tenants of equal caliber. Smart, generous and conscientious, Amanda is truly a gem among realtors — we will not work with anyone else!" - Quito & Elizabeth

"Before we officially started our search for our first home, we heard plenty of scary stories, but Amanda showed us we had nothing to fear. From our first meeting with her, Amanda was supportive, patient, kind and knowledgeable. She helped us search through open houses to find our dream place, never pushing us to make a decision we weren't comfortable with. We cannot recommend her enough." - Richie and Kelli

"Amanda was fantastic to work with in selling our apartment. Ultimately we were able to sell our apartment for 11% more than our original goal, and Amanda got us through contract signing and closing flawlessly while we were out of the country for two months. We really enjoyed our time working with Amanda and will be suggesting her to anyone we know buying or selling!" - Mark & Taylor

"Amanda helped manage a complicated 1031 exchange and found a great 4 family townhouse and a 2 bedroom condominium--along with excellent tenants for me. She was patient, focused, professional and a genuinely great person. Purchasing properties in a highly competitive market is never easy but I think it would be hard to find a better agent." -Carl M.

"Amanda McAvena is a practiced and knowledgeable agent, highly ethical and professional and able to beautifully balance the human and business aspects or real estate. Amanda has great marketing and design sensibilities, is active in her Brooklyn community, and values the rich legacy of buildings in Brooklyn. We have used Amanda’s services to both sell and rent property and can’t recommend anyone more highly." -Mona and Henry
