Amanda has that "it factor" when it comes to selling real estate. She is a very gentle, kind, good-spirited person. She made my wife and I feel very comfortable along the way. We were very difficult buyers too! Amanda remained patient, understanding, and helpful when we had difficulty getting a loan. She found us a loan officer that was able to get the loan we needed. Her years of experience has enabled her to build professional relationships with the right people, at the right time, for any situation, in order get a deal done right. We ended up buying a historic house. She even found us an expert home inspector for us that specialized in antique properties. There is a lot of nuances to real estate and you want to have the right person with you when making a huge financial decision. Amanda Eckart is that person! Less ... More

Amanda is honest, reliable, and committed to her clients! In the past 10 years she has helped me work through the purchase of three homes, two of which were very difficult. Amanda always maintains grace and professionalism, no matter how challenging the situation is. I will only use Amanda Eckart for buying and selling homes on Long Island!

Amanda Eckart is absolutely the professional you want on your team when buying and/or selling your home in Long Island. She not only has express first hand knowledge of the area, but she has a warm and nurturing way of presenting it. At no time did I ever feel rushed or pressured as I had with other agents in the area, instead, I felt like she presented the facts in a cool manner and pointed out the pros and cons of each which gave me all of the quality information needed to make a great decision. Although I was not a first time homebuyer, I was a first time homebuyer in New York. Amanda took her time, introduced me to several others and allowed me to choose the other members of my team necessary to make a smooth purchase. Even when I brought on one of my team previously used, she was happy to work with them and integrated them into the "NY way of doing things". It was a breeze. Amanda was always there for me over the phone and in person. She made me feel that I was her only client and always responded to phone calls, texts, and e-mails in a timely fashion, (even when I was not so kind with the time of day or day of the week) She truly understands the urgency that this process sometimes requires and always seemed to rise to the occasion. Once I found a property to move into, that's when the real fun began. Amanda's knowledge of Comps in the area and the position of the local economy really gave us an upper hand in negotiating. She could whip out sales numbers and addresses off the top of her head and negotiated a much better deal than I ever could. (and she did this all with a smile and very cool demeanor). Amanda likes to call herself "The Real Estate Nerd", but I think she should be called "The ......no, maybe that is the correct nickname for her because she definitely is a Master of Real Estate on Long Island.

Amanda Eckart is the best of the best! She is knowledgeable, friendly, responsible, and honest. She is very familiar with many neighborhoods in Suffolk County, Long Island, and has friends/connections throughout that she can draw upon when she wants to seek out additional information. She has helped me with issues before, during, and after the process of purchasing two homes. I email or text her with follow up questions frequently and always value her opinion. I appreciate that she worked with me and my husband for several years before we eventually purchased our dream home. She was never pushy at all. Instead she was extremely patient and eager to help our family find the perfect home for us! Less ... More

Amanda helped us to find a rental investment property. I am a Chief Financial Officer and work with many consultants etc. on a daily basis. Amanda is very good in what she does. She knows the market perfectly, is very reliable, always on-time, has great advice and is never pushy. A true consultative sales approach and great experience.

Helped me buy and sell homes
We are so thankful we could go through the buying and selling experience with a realtor we could trust. Uncertain how we would sell our home in an unsteady market, Amanda was there to offer sound advice and strategy. She uses different types of media to reach a broad spectrum of buyers. She is also very attentive to details and moving forward with selling process. As for the buying... Amanda went above and beyond to help us find the right home for us. We had some very specific needs and she dug deep to help us find the right place. We found Amanda to be very knowledgeable and very patient as we survey tons of homes. She never imposed her opinion about a home unless you asked for her insight. I was glad to have her on my side as we negotiated with home owners and I appreciated not being pressured into any sale. We did have difficulties with our seller and I am very grateful for the emotional support, her attentiveness, and her willingness to intercede to move things forward. Amanda has been in the realty business for many years and I can say she is a professional who will work with her clients. She has the right skills, she has the right experience, and she is dedicated to her work. We trust and recommend her to everyone. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
When deciding to search for a new home for me and my family I felt a bit overwhelmed and confused......Just didnt know where to begin. I was introduced to Amanda Eckart through a mutual friend and instantly felt a sense of comfort. Amanda listened to our needs, wants, limitations and financial concerns and reacted accordingly. She knew more about our town and local area than most poeple who have lived here 50 years......impressive!!! She eagerly spent hours showing our home doing open houses and giving helpful hints and advice that I never would have thought of myself. Amanda was so professional yet with that......I want to be her best friend approach. She is not interested in selling someone a Box to live in but in helping people find a home that they can enjoy and grow with their family and to be part of a community. Our experience with Amanda has been wonderful, I have reccommended her to many friends and collegues all with rave reveiws. I hope you all find the same experience I did and can find that perfect home for you and your family....WE DID!!!! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Amanda found us the house we wanted in the precise neighborhood we requested. She started the process by taking us to several homes to get a sense of what we wanted. When we came close to submitting a bid on another home, she kept an eye on the market and took us to see our dream house before she would let us submit a bid on something that, in retrospect, wouldn not have been a good fit. She really listens and is not invested in pushing buyers to make a move. Throughout the process with a difficult seller, she made sure that we understood what was happening at evey step. I have recommended her to colleagus and friends. You can't do better! Less ... More

Amanda Eckart is the consummate professional! When I was looking for a home she was with me every step of the way. From investigating and showing me properties, to helping with inspections and various other incidentals, Amanda never wavered in her commitment to me, her client. Amanda continues to follow up and keep me in the loop as far as market trends are concerned which is very helpful in this economy. I have recommended Amanda to many of my friends and colleagues in the area and they have always been very grateful to me for doing so. She?s just wonderful! Less ... More

Amanda was very friendly, thorough and professional throughout the process of buying our home. We took a long time (years) looking at homes before we were ready to buy. She never pressured us, and always helped us think through the pros and cons of each particular house. When it came time to negotiate on the house we chose (and eventually bought), it was clear that Amanda had a lot of knowledge about how and what to negotiate -- this comes from her in-depth knowledge of the local market as well as national market trends. I was just so pleased having Amanda as our agent. She's great! Less ... More

Amanda went above and beyond to help sell our house in a market (2007-2008) that was very difficult. It took awhile, but the house sold. When we were having our yard sale before the move, Amanda showed up to help out. She helped us in so many ways... finding a mover, helping with financing and finding a storage unit. During the journey of preparing to sell, the open houses, the yard sales, and finding a new home... Amanda was there for us... and we have a new friend! Thank you, Amanda!!

After listing our house with other agents, we were so thankful to find Amanda. She is an amazing real estate agent. We HIGHLY recommend using her for buying or selling or both ! We sold our house with her and hired her as our "buyers agent" because she is THAT good. And with her help we found a house we love !! She's professional, she really knows her stuff !

Amanda is very knowledgeable and helpful. She spent a great deal of time with us. She sold our house and was also our agent for the house we purchased. She put a great deal of effort into serving as our agent, and got us terrific deals on both sides. Even after we closed, she was a constant source or information for carpenters, electricians, and other service providers. We are extremely satisfied with her service and would strongly recommend her to anyone.
