So pleased, thank you very much. As always – a total pleasure, fun and definitely glad you are “on our side”.
Amanda letter dropped in the area I was interested and was able to secure a fantastic property for me after navigating many obstacles to achieve a positive outcome. I highly recommend Amanda.
We could not have settled for the house we got, for the price we got it for and the speed at which we got it for. She and her team are God sent and worked with us, for us. Her attention to detail is second to none and that helped us get the contract exactly how we wanted. Her guidance to us was just amazing. It was more like a God sent fairy working with us rather than a human. After having got the house , we had to pinch ourselves getting up the next day and was hard to believe that we got EXACTLY what we wanted , at an unbelievably quick time frame. Her slogan “Amanda ON MY SIDE” summarizes the experience of working with her and the super fantastic team she has. Hard to believe what she does and how she does it. We have just one word to describe our journey with her, and it is… WOW
Amanda had a number of close contacts with local Real Estate Agents which made us feel very special when fighting amongst everyone else.
It was all a bit of a dream to be honest and we can definitely say that without Amanda we would not have had a chance to buy a home in Sydney’s Inner West. The property was found off market, was bought under market price and has so much potential. During the buying process Amanda found us a new Mortgage Broker (Sarah) and Conveyancer (Campbell) who were both awesome and made everything happen almost effortlessly – it was a great team effort!!
Liz and I would like to thank Amanda so very much and would be more than happy to recommend her to all future home buyers.
She had agents ringing her with properties and got us in to see the good ones before they went to market. Given that we both work in very demanding jobs, having Amanda doing this legwork for us made the previous 12 months seem like a lot of wasted effort!
When we eventually found the house for us, it was on the open market and going to auction but was expected to sell prior. There was a lot of interest in this house with multiple contracts already out and in negotiation. This is where having Amanda on our side made all the difference. She found out what price the vendor was looking for (it definitely helps to have inside knowledge) and we were able to arrange our valuation, building and pest inspections and put in an offer the very next day. After being pipped at auction and losing another house at the last minute (literally), we were determined that we weren’t going to lose this one. Even when another buyer came in with a higher offer, Amanda was able to engage with the agent who then rang the vendor. After a quick conversation, we met their request to extend the settlement, matched the other offer and the vendor signed the contract. We went from viewing the house to a signed contract in just over 24 hours!
Without Amanda, we would have paid more for our house, or worse still missed out again. Easily worth the fee many times over. But even after the contract was signed, Amanda made sure that everything went smoothly with the settlement and moving in. It’s the value add that really made it an extra special and extra personal experience.
We are in our new home now and couldn’t be happier. If you are considering using a buyers’ agent, do it. You won’t regret it. If you are looking for a dedicated professional with the inside knowledge, a wide network of relationships and rarest of all, that personal touch that makes you feel special, we highly recommend using Amanda Segers.
We searched for a house for a year, keeping close to local real estate agents whom we knew now by name. We didn’t let our hopes be dampened by the massive queues lining up to view open homes each weekend. After missing out on our dream home we decided that the prospect of having someone do the searching / evaluating / negotiations for us sounded like a dream come true.
Our first impression of Amanda was that she was approachable, professional, a good listener and ambitious (having just set up her own business she was driven to succeed). Plus, of course, she had good contacts from her history being a selling agent. She seemed determined that she could find the right property for us and confident in her ability to do so. We liked the fact that, apart from a nominal fee, Amanda was only going to really earn her money by finding us a house. Amanda immediately got to work short-listing and viewing properties, contacting all her industry contacts. She viewed properties that had not even yet been listed. We immediately felt an enormous sense of relief and renewed hope. We knew that the buyer numbers outweighed the properties available and felt we had an edge. Amanda then did a mail drop in our desired area. Unruffled that this didn’t produce our home, next she went door knocking. Streets were shortlisted and she utilized her professional charm. A week later we purchased the very first house Amanda knocked on! Amanda negotiated a great price for us, as the owner had no costs they too were happy. We were deliriously happy and still are!
Without Amanda on our side we would undoubtedly still be looking, spending our weekends with the masses, bidding for properties that could go for $200k over reserve at auction. Our only regret is that we didn’t employ Amanda sooner. She is a fantastic buyers’ agent and not only has happy customers, but customers who value her hard work, determination and warm personality. To say that Amanda worked tirelessly on our behalf is an understatement and we recommend her thoroughly. Thanks Amanda.
After recently returning to Sydney, I wasn’t very familiar with the Sydney market. So Amanda went to great lengths to show me what my budget would buy in the different areas that I was interested in. She really took the time to understand what it was I was after. I never felt like I was being rushed. In fact, Amanda’s dedication to finding the right property for me was truly impressive.
I’m convinced that Amanda’s fee is absolutely worth it for the value she added. When it came down to negotiating for the place I wanted, even though there was a lot of interest from other parties, Amanda was able to secure the purchase, and at a great price. Amanda’s experience and knowledge of the market put me so far ahead of the rest of the crowd.
I was lucky to find Amanda through a Google search and within minutes Amanda returned my call. Within a couple of hours, she was able to indicate the number of bidders I could expect on the day and a price range the property could be expected to fetch. Her warm and friendly nature also had a calming effect on my nerves. I was extremely impressed with Amanda’s promptness and incredible efficiency to gain so much information about the property in such a short amount of time.
On the day of auction Amanda arrived early, prepared, and exuded a professional and composed demeanor.
Prior to bidding she walked through the property with us and was able to gently offer advice on what the property’s sale price might reach, and the bidding tactic she would use based on the number of interested parties on the day (13 bidders registered). Once the bidding started, Amanda was just incredible to watch. Her pacing, timing and ability to quickly adapt and respond to the bidding increments with ease and confidence had my partner and I signing the contract within a few minutes!!
Amanda was able to secure us our dream property under our maximum limit. The listing agent also notified us post-auction that there were other parties that could have bid higher, but Amanda was a force to be reckoned with and they just backed down!
I cannot stress enough how instrumental Amanda was in securing our property and we definitely attribute our positive outcome all to her.
I engaged Amanda to bid on a property for me. While I wasn’t successful, I certainly got much closer than I would have on my own. Amanda’s reading of the auction situation on the night was very accurate and her calm approach in an emotional situation stopped me from going over my budget and overpaying for the property.
As well as negotiating the sale, Amanda did all the footwork that was required in dealing with the selling agent and taking the signed contract into the agent’s offices, waiting around for solicitors and other work that I would have expected to do myself. Amanda’s negotiation of the price meant that I paid significantly less than I would have paid doing it myself. The saving I made was probably about 3 times the fee I paid Amanda. So very well worth it!
On my next time round in the property market, I would most definitely utilise the whole buyer’s agent package from Amanda. Engaging Amanda would have saved me months of time spent looking. In fact I was just about to switch to the full service option when I saw the place I did buy. The whole experience of having to spend so much time looking at properties, and then missing out at auction made me realise that Amanda’s fee as a buyer’s agent is extremely reasonable!
Amanda was a lovely person to deal with, professional, knowledgeable and very generous with her time and expertise. I would certainly recommend her services to anyone looking at real estate.
Within a few days you already had a number of places lined up for me to see and so our journey began. What took me 4 years of searching the market for, you found in just a few months and delivered to us a house we are truly proud to call our home. As I mentioned I wanted to live here first and get to know my home before I wrote to you. And I have done just that and I can now say working side by side with you was one of the best decisions we could have undertaken.
You made our journey from start to finish enjoyable and professional. You helped every step of the way from negotiations to lawyers, appraisals to settlement and everything in between. Amanda your personality is energetic, fun, loyal, trusting and hard working. I write this letter in the highest recommendation to anyone thinking about working with Amanda as their buyer’s agent. As Amanda says (& I believe she truly means): Amanda is on our side. Thank you so very much.
Amanda immediately impressed by actually visiting us at home to better understand us and our lifestyle. From that and from the details we gave her about what we were looking for, Amanda, after quite a short time, found us a beautifully-designed unit on the water on one of Sydney’s small and interesting bays, full of sunlight during the day and with sparkling city lights at night. It is different from, and much lovelier than anything we had imagined.
The whole process has been a pleasure. Amanda perfectly combines a warm, generous and helpful personal nature with impeccable, intelligent, thorough and capable professional behaviour. At every stage, she had a most friendly and efficient relationship with lawyers and agents, keeping us constantly in touch, by phone and email, with matters as they proceeded. As a result, they proceeded much more speedily and efficiently than would normally be expected, as we found from talking to friends about similar experiences. When necessary, Amanda drove us the rather long distances required, which was much appreciated. It has been a huge change for us, but with Amanda’s help is has all happened in a remarkably pleasant and friendly way. Thanks to Amanda we are, at our age, living a whole new life we would not have imagined – much to the joy and delight of our family and friends.
We had been looking seriously for about 6 months before deciding to employ Amanda as our ‘buyers agent’. Within 2 months Amanda was able to find us our dream home, closer to the beach than we would have ever imagined. Being time poor & living a long distance away from the areas we were looking made life hard inspecting properties & staying on the front foot with the local market. Having Amanda pre-qualify properties & negotiate the price took all the stress out of buying house, not to mention gave us back our weekends!!! Amanda, I would have no drama referring my family, friends & work colleagues to your wonderful service!!!
She assisted us throughout the entire purchase process, always followed up our queries quickly, and was always friendly and helpful. We love our new home and would definitely recommend Amanda to anyone we know looking for a great buyer’s agent. Thanks Amanda!
Amanda was absolutely amazing in her attention to detail, listening to our many requests and managing to meet every single one, whilst always being available to respond and keep us updated of developments through our many calls & emails. Finding a home within our budget and in our dream location was certainly a hard task we put to Amanda, considering the prices that people are paying just so they don’t miss out. We are still both in a sense of shock that it is finally over.
I would recommend Amanda in a heartbeat to anybody looking for a home, she has fabulous contacts and it is extremely useful having someone who used to be a selling agent for one of the big real estate firms. Any prospective buyers that are contemplating this service should not delay to employ Amanda, and you too will be in your new home sooner and more than likely, at a lower cost than you can get, when negotiating on your own.
Amanda listened. She took me out for a day of viewings to ensure she knew what I was looking for and after this time only informed me of properties she thought I’d be interested in. I quickly realised her knowledge on what to look for and what questions to ask were invaluable.
I was interested in a couple of properties prior to the one I subsequently bought one was sold for way over the valuation price and the other had a few building issues. I seriously considered going ahead with both and on both occasions Amanda advised me not to. This just consolidated the fact that I trusted her. Finally I viewed the unit I now live in and by this time I was very disheartened feeling this market is just too competitive. I said I liked it but didn’t think too much. Amanda made it happen with minimal effort or stress on my part.
Thank you so much! I completely recommend Amanda and know she worked hard to get me what I wanted and get me something that “felt right” as well as provide the service.
We didn’t think it was possible – in under 2 months you were able to find exactly what we were after and in our chosen location. Throughout the search you were fabulous, always readily contactable and so positive and calm. We also loved that you had a great eye for possible renovations/improvements to the houses we were viewing. You made a difficult and stressful process so much fun! Thanks again.
With the arrival of a new baby, the pressure to secure a new home increased.
Deciding to use Amanda as our buyer’s agent was the best decision we made. Initially, we met with Amanda to evaluate and fine-tune our requirements – what exactly we were hoping to purchase and just as importantly, what we didn’t need or desire in a new home.
Shortly after our first meeting, Amanda compiled a comprehensive list of available homes to view. Some were already on market, but importantly, several were off market for a number of reasons e.g. vendors hoping to sell quickly or perhaps avoid the process of preparing their homes for viewings. Amanda’s ability to source such off market properties via her network meant we were able to find our home within three weeks!
Throughout the process, Amanda was realistic, honest and constantly keeping us informed. She helped us maintain a focus on our requirements that meant we were able to decide quickly and with certainty when the right property became available. Amanda provided evaluations of any properties being considered and even drove around with us for an afternoon to view a number of properties.
We have since recommended Amanda to several friends and won’t hesitate using her services when we purchase our next property!
