In 2016, I took a leap of faith and stepped out on my own at Berkshire Hathaway. It is a great honor for me to place a "For Sale" sign in a yard with my own name on it! Being in a licensed support role for over 10 years prepared me to hit the ground running. I am honored to have been recognized as a recipient of the Leading Edge Award.

Amanda made our home buying experience a breeze! We were first time buyers and she was there with us every step of the way. We can not thank her enough for helping us find our dream home!

Amanda was my buying agent for my new townhouse. She helped me through the entire process of building, design choices and purchasing my unit. Amanda was always attentive to my questions and needs, in each step of the process. Even after closing, she has remained available to help me with warranty issues that have presented themselves. At the end of it all, not only did she prove to be a great agent but it also feels like I gained a new friend.

Amanda Gates was the selling agent for my father and ex-stepmother’s home. As my father’s Power of Attorney, I interacted with Amanda on his behalf. Amanda was able to handle a delicate, emotionally-charged real-estate situation with professionalism and finesse. I found her to be personable, knowledgeable, and accommodating. She offered sound advice and was able to find the balance between allowing sellers to make their own decisions while extending her
professional opinion. She was extremely prompt in all matters as well as making sure all details had been addressed. By taking advantage of the technological resources available, she was able to make sure forms, correspondences, calendars, and schedules were always easily accessible and understandable. If I ever had questions, she was able to answer them clearly for me. I would highly recommend Amanda Gates as a real estate agent.

By far one of the GREATEST agents I have ever worked with! My company Tried N True Home Solutions focuses on distressed neighborhood redevelopment were we assist homeowners in situations where they can not simply list their property to sell. We have worked with Amanda several times and every time she never fails to surprise us with her knowledge and professionalism.

If experience, knowledge and genuine awesomeness is what your looking for I highly suggest Amanda Gates!

"I have not had good experiences in the past with Realtors. Amanda changed that. She was always available to answer questions, made good recommendations and listened to our needs. She did not try to push us to do things to our house we didn't need to in order to sell our home."

As her client’s lender and settlement agent, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Amanda. In this complicated world of lending regulations, Amanda helped make the process for her client seamless. She understood the timing requirements for closing documents and was very responsive to my requests. She was quick to resolve any issues. Amanda showed great care and concern for her client to help expedite the entire process. As a lender, it was very impressive to see the knowledge she had for the entire loan process. It is very important for me to have a good working relationship with realtors, and Amanda went above and beyond for the client.

Amanda did a great job understanding my housing needs and getting me matched with the right home! She was there to answer all my questions and readily available for showings. She was very knowledgeable about the process and kept everything on track! Would highly recommend her!

We were referred to Amanda by our niece. We live on the west coast and started speaking with Amanda in late January via phone and email. She signed us up to view homes on the MLS. She would touch base with us via email regularly. Since day 1 we were very comfortable with Amanda. She is professional, friendly, caring, etc.....We planned a trip to NC early April to meet with Amanda and view homes. She knew what we were looking for and was extremely prepared. She is very knowledgeable and knows the area we were interested in. We spent 3-4 days looking at homes and the last day we found one. All through the buying process Amanda was very thorough and supportive, even when we got a bit demanding she was our representative and we felt confident that she was there for us. She made the coast to coast communication very easy. She was available early mornings and late at night. We love the home we purchased and plan to buy another one in the not so distant future, with Amanda as our agent. We have dealt with other agents in the past and Amanda is the best by far!

I contacted Amanda to help with the sale of a house that had been owned by my grandparents and was in need of updating. She provided me with comparable sales listings in the immediate area, advised me regarding expected sale price, and offered to either list the house or present the house to some investors she knew who might be willing to make a cash offer. I was able to negotiate an acceptable price with one of the investors and concluded the sale in a very short time, avoiding the listing listing/showing process entirely. Amanda was very responsive and a pleasure to work with.

"Selling your house can me a bit overwhelming. I knew a few areas that I needed help with in selling my home. Amanda from day 1 new exactly what to do and how to price my home to sell. I figured that with the market the way it is that the sale would happen pretty quick, but I wouldn't have guessed that within 4 days I would have several offers to work from! Amanda was extremely professional throughout the entire process and made for a very selling experience. Cant thank her enough for all the work she put in to helping me out! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy!"

Amanda did an incredible job helping me buy and sell two homes on the same day! She worked tirelessly, all hours of the day and night to ensure everything went smooth on the day of my two closings. I would definitely call Amanda Gates again and recommended her to all my friends. Thanks Amanda!

Whether you’re selling or buying, Amanda Gates is the person to turn to. Amanda is a realtor of realtors. She is very knowledgeable and savvy. The amount of research she put into our specific market was astounding and very effective. The promotional package that she put together was very thorough and highlighted our house beautifully. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her highly to anyone.

I contacted her at 8pm and she was able to show me houses the next morning. Helped me look at several and then helped negotiate on the one I picked out. Great to work with!

Amanda was referred to us by a close friend who was very complimentary about her when we entered into the purchasing market. We are relatively new to Stokes county, in fact new to North Carolina after relocating here from California in the spring of 2016. Our entire move from California to North Carolina was a leap of faith and so upon moving here we decided to keep our options open and entered into a 24 month lease to purchase agreement for a home and property located in the town of Walnut Cove. Not entirely a stranger to North Carolina we visited Ft.Bragg when our eldest son was stationed there with the 82nd Airborne, and Fayetville is the birth place of my Mother In-Law.

In the Fall of 2017 we were in a position to enter into a purchase and joint investment agreement with my Mother who resides in California. That said, the logistics of looking at homes and then conveying the results of the showings was very challenging and there were also the family dynamics that Amanda got to experience first hand thereby thrusting her in the middle to manage and by default becoming a part of our family. Our experience working with Amanda was very positive through the entire process of looking and finding a home, performing the necessary inspections, negotiating the upfront incentive offerings to the Seller, knowledge of how the lender operates and what the VA requires was not only impressive, but also essential in making our home purchase investment go smoothly as possible. There was also a surmountable amount of "hand-holding" that Amanda provided my Mother in the logistics and coordinating the sending/receiving/signing of documents from what used to be, to how things are signed electronically which included helping my Mother navigate through the various methods of technology that are not necessarily second nature for a person of the age of 78. All of this was just the experience of working and doing business with her and we cannot thank her enough for her patience in working through that.

On a personal level, we discovered things in common, enjoyed her sense of humor, learned of her devotion to family and witnessed first hand her demonstration of a productive and strong work ethic that extends beyond her profession position as a Real Estate agent. We are happy to call her a friend, and look forward to building a long-term relationship with her and her family that will extend well into the future at our new home that she played such a huge part in.

From the Cortez and Jugoz Family, Thank You Amanda!

Friends, Lani, Rudy, Liz and Rebecca :)

"I was referred to Amanda by a friend of mine. Right from our first meeting I felt comfortable with Amanda and her easy going, professional but friendly style of being a realtor. She listened to me, gave thoughtful responses, was knowledgeable about the area and the houses, and was easy to work with. My house hunting and buying experience with Amanda could not have gone smoother or been more positive. I would definitely contact Amanda in the future if I was in the market to buy or sell again."

Amanda is GREAT! We had a showing within 2 hours or listing our property and an offer within 24 hours (which we accepted) We would use her again and will definitely recommend her!

I've been fortunate to work with Amanda a number of times in 2017. I always find her very prepared, detailed, caring and attentive to what's needed in assisting the clients in their home purchase. It makes my job as a loan officer easier to work with a true professional such as Amanda. She is a pleasure to work with!!

I have referred several sellers to Amanda based on her experience and professionalism. I am pleased to say that each seller was able to sell quickly and as expected. I'll continue to refer her in the future. In fact, I have 3 potential sellers lined up right now.

Amanda was amazing throughout the entire process! We started by letting her know we were "just looking", and wouldn't be serious or ready to buy for at least a year, most likely two, and we lived 2 hours away and could only look at houses on random Saturdays...and she still wanted to work with us!! She would set up multiple showings for the days we'd come to town, and spend as much time as needed at each one. She truly listened to what we each wanted, and found some great places for us to see. She was so very patient when we changed our "must have" list a million times, and the areas we wanted to look in at least 812 times... She knew the second before we did when we walked into THE house...OUR house!!!! She guided us through every step, answered endless questions, offered her expertise and fabulous sense of humor to make the stressful moments easier, and did it all with grace and style!! She's professional, thorough, knowledgable, fun, and straight forward...we couldn't ask for a better realtor than Amanda. She's the best, by far, that I've ever worked with, and with over 15 years previous experience as a Real Estate Paralegal, I've worked with several!

I found Amanda to be a very engaged and knowledgeable real estate professional. We worked together helping one of our members purchase a home and it was a pleasure. I highly recommend Amanda to those seeking a consummate professional to aid them in the sale of their home or in their quest for a new one.
