Some people leave their hearts in San Francisco; I found mine here.
I still vividly remember my first trip to San Francisco when I was 12. Looking down at my shoes while on Powell Street, I experienced the allure of this city and instantly felt a pull. I knew then that I found my place in the world.
After a decade in banking, my love of architecture and design drew me to real estate. Since becoming a real estate agent in 2006, I have developed a process to help clients navigate a dynamic, complex and nuanced market. I thrive on the many challenging facets of the business, and find satisfaction in tough negotiations.
For me, being a real estate agent isn't just about buying and selling property and closing a deal. It's about the people I meet and the relationships we build. It's about educating clients and guiding them through the process, to help them make informed decisions to suit their particular needs. It's about helping clients make the best long term decision, sometimes in the face of short term frustration.
As both an agent and homeowner, I know that buying a home is not just making an investment; it’s laying down roots and spreading wings. Everyone's path to finding their place in the world is unique, and I am privileged to be a part of that journey with my clients.

Amanda and Hyon helped me with my condo search, and I cannot recommend working with them enough. As a first-time home buyer, they helped me to prioritize my wish list and understand what should be non-negotiable versus what I should compromise on. I worked with Amanda and Hyon during the first half of 2022. The market at the time was very competitive and rapidly changing. Their invaluable advice helped me wait until it was the right time for me to purchase, and I ended up getting a condo that wildly exceeded my expectations. They helped me select the property that was right for me for many years to come. Amanda and Hyon have such a deep knowledge of the San Francisco housing market, and I always felt I was in extremely capable hands. They were always available when I wanted a second opinion on a property, and they helped make my first home buying experience a great one! They are the best of the best!
Amanda and her team were amazing on both the buy and sell side. They made the process so easy for me, understood what type of home I was looking for, and appreciated how I wanted to move quickly to sell my former home. They took care of everything and made the process seamless for me. So grateful for their amazing help!

Amanda helped us to find our dream home in San Francisco upon our return from living abroad nearly 7 years ago. She truly listened to what we were looking for our young family – while we were still overseas - and showed us numerous properties over several return trips to find a home. Once the home was identified, she helped negotiate and coordinate all aspects of the transaction and made it as smooth as possible. This was no small feat given we were not even in the same country for most of the escrow period. It’s a testament to Amanda’s clear communication skills which makes it just one of the many reasons she is so easy to work with. She is also incredibly savvy about the San Francisco market which is unlike many other property markets. Fast forward to 2021, in a bittersweet turn of events, Amanda helped us to sell this same house swiftly and at our desired value. She worked tirelessly through the transaction, fully advocating for our best interests. I have no doubt that the transaction would not have been as successful and seamless (from our perspective) if not for her intervention and business savvy. We highly recommend Amanda as listing or buyer’s agent as she is very organized, has a plan, and gets results. And she is an absolute joy to work with, bringing humor into the situation as appropriate and steadying nerves when it is often needed in these types of sometimes emotionally charged situations. We can’t wait to work with Amanda again in any capacity.
San Francisco currently has over 7300 Realtors® (I checked), but only one Amanda Sharp! Never have I worked with someone as kind, competent and hardworking as Amanda. She made what could have been a daunting task seamless and complete without a ripple. Simply put, if you want the best agent in the City call Amanda Sharp at Compass.
Amanda Sharp was there for me every step of the way. When I had questions, she answered them. When I had fears, she allayed them. And most important of all, she always made me feel like I was her most important client. I would recommend Amanda without reservation.
Amanda Sharp is way more than a Realtor®. Working with her means working with a friend, a thoughtful advisor, and a woman who is a joy to be with. I cannot imagine anyone else who works so tirelessly to get you through the difficulties of buying or selling a property. If I ever need a Realtor® again, there is no one else I would consider. Amanda is a gem.
Amanda Sharp was a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge, professionalism and personality were pivotal in ultimately finalizing my condo sale. I would recommend anyone that is looking to sell property in the SF market to leverage her expertise.
I hired Amanda Sharp to sell my San Francisco condo in the fall of 2019. I first met Amanda when she sold another unit in the building. My former neighbors highly recommended Amanda to me. They were very happy to learn that I chose Amanda to sell my condo and they assured me that I was in "very good hands." And I definitely was! I found Amanda to be professional, experienced, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Her communication was always clear. She always responded quickly (usually immediately) to my texts and emails and phone calls. I always found her to be available to me and willing to go the extra mile to help me in any way she could during every step of the sales process. I was able to put my trust in her and that enabled me to let go of most of the stress and worry involved in the process of selling a home. I highly recommend Amanda whether buying or selling. You will indeed be in very good hands.

During the sale of our family home, Amanda more than exceeded our expectations in terms of professionalism and expertise. Amanda worked diligently with us during the process-- from preparing our home for sale, to interacting with prospective buyers, to the finalization of the sale process. In addition to keeping excellent communication with us so we remain involved in the sale, Amanda showed great adaptability during this uncertain time of social distancing and public health as it pertains to ongoing business. On behalf of our family, I highly recommend Amanda's services in the future!
Once again, Amanda Sharp was a tremendous help to me as my realtor. She helped me sell my San Francisco condo at the end of 2019. And during the height of Shelter-In-Place, she helped me buy a home in the East Bay. Amanda is always the consummate professional. She comes to every negotiation well informed, confident and ready to get the best deal for her client. I don't think I'll be moving for a long time, but I wouldn't hesitate to hire Amanda again to help me, should I need to buy or sell Bay Area real estate. Also, her assistant Inna is extremely helpful. Together, these pair of dynamic women are a great team to help their clients navigate through home buying and selling.

My husband and I just bought a condo in a high rise building in San Francisco with Amanda representing us, and we could not have chosen a better agent. Amanda already came highly recommended from a friend who had used her, and yet she exceeded all of our expectations. Not only is Amanda an expert with years of experience in the San Francisco housing market and numerous clients looking in all price ranges, but she is ethical, organized, detail-oriented, responsive, and on top of everything. She was beyond patient with us as it took us over a year to find something we loved. She was always honest with her opinion even if that meant advising us to wait, and she never pressured us to buy. She is a SUPERB agent. We could not recommend Amanda more and will gladly continue referring friends and family to her.
When a friend recommended Amanda to me, I was hesitant. I’d never worked with an agent before, and I thought they're just salespeople trying to close deals. I was so wrong. Amanda is more like a trusted advisor, guiding me through the ins and outs of the complexities of the SF real estate market. She’s educated and advised me, helping me navigate the process of purchasing a home in San Francisco. She’s an expert in the industry, and an absolute joy to work with. I recommend her to all my friends, and they thank me for it.
Amanda is the best REALTOR® in the entire Bay Area! I first met Amanda over coffee to go over my house needs as well as location. We saw a handful of options, which did not work out for various reasons. However, Amanda was determined to help me find the right place. During the process, we experienced very irrational behaviors from both sides of the market, buyers and sellers, as the Fed was ready to increase interest rates making it even more challenging to find the right place. Amanda turned such a discouraging situation into a great experience and successful transaction. Thank you for helping Mia and I to find a great home!
