      Excellent to work with. Expert in the Basye area.

    • Amanda helped me buy a home

        Amanda is the best agent I've ever worked with. In my short 6+ year real estate investor journey I have worked with 5 different agents in various part of the county. By far she is the best. She is very professional and caring. She listens and comprehends the things that are important to me and help me solve problems. She also really know the local market and can provide valuable insights. The professionals and vendors she recommended are also of high quality. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor.

            - Melissa Quade, Stanley VA
          • Amanda was a huge asset to us during our house buying and again 5 years later when we were ready to sell. She guided us through every step as we prepped the house for pictures to get the house on the market, notifying us of appts at our residence, reviewing the offer with us incase we had questions, suggesting local companies for services, and even met me at my car on closing day so I could find the attorney's office and wouldn't get lost. Within 4 days of listing, we had an offer and Amanda helped ease our minds and answered all our questions so we weren't overwhelmed at any point. Now my family is able to move forward with our dream to build our forever home. Thank you Amanda!!

            - Stephanie Wolters, Woodstock VA
          • Amanda was there every step of the way explaining whenever we had questions. She always responded in a quick and professional manner. She is knowledgeable and takes care of getting all the paper work done and ready. She was down to earth and listened to what you need and are looking for. I would recommend her to everyone I know.

            - Matthew Himelright, Strasburg VA
          • We have worked with Amanda before and highly recommend her whenever we know someone who wants to buy/sell a home. She is wonderful to work with, always kept us well informed and answered any question we had. She is a true professional and very personable, and made our selling process feel seamless.

            - Micheila Vorous, Front Royal VA
          • We recently went with Amanda to sell a rental property of ours. Amanda helped us buy our first home together a few years ago and she was our go to for selling this property.The whole process went so smoothly. Amanda took care of everything and only involved us when she needed additional information. We have a baby on the way, plus working full-time, among many other commitments, so it was nice to know that our property was in good hands and we didn't have to worry about whether or not our realtor was staying on top of things.Not only was the service outstanding, Amanda offered something completely new to the area with her 360-degree virtual tour, allowing potential buyers to really see the property in the best way.We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. We used her to buy a house and we used her to sell a house. Both processes she made as easy as possible and we couldn't have possibly asked for more out of a realtor!

            - Levi & Shari Miller, Woodstock VA
          • Amanda is great to work with. I always have so many questions and she always knows how to explain everything to me so that I can understand. I also appreciate how fast she gets back to me when I message her. This was my second time working with Amanda only this time we were selling! I will continue to use Amanda for all our home buying and selling needs

            - Tiffany Comer, Front Royal VA
          • From the very beginning, Amanda was right there with us...explaining the process, letting us know what was happening and what we could expect. Amanda is extremely professional, very personable and always looks out for her clients' best interest. She is truthful and knowledegable and takes care of every possible detail. This is the 2nd time Amanda has represented me and, if I were to ever buy and/or sell again, there's no one else I'd ever consider working with!

            - Christine Myrtle, Woodstock VA
          • Amanda is amazing. She really goes above and beyond, we couldnt be happier. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. Shes great personally and professionally, I cant say enough good things about her. We will continue to use her for years to come

            - Cameron Young, Warren County
          • Working with Amanda to buy my first home was possibly one of the best decisions I could have ever made. She made me feel totally comfortable every step of the way, explaining everything and answering any questions I had along the way. Her pleasant and professional attitude along with her drive to help me find what was best for me and my family made me feel so supported and really made the whole process so much easier!

            - Samantha Kephart
          • Dont be fooled by appearances or politeness, Amanda is the right person to have your back and in your corner. Amanda is responsive and spot on with market analysis. She sold 2 of our homes and delivered an excellent purchase of 1 of the 2... we were completely satisfied by her tireless efforts and marketing.She was a calming voice during a difficult cross-country move, she delivered the sale and closing ( above asking price)!!!I recommend her to anyone buying or selling property!!!

            - Eric Harris, Shenandoah County
          • Amanda is very professional all around. When my wife and I moved into the area, she did an incredible job finding a home that suited all of our needs. Whenever we asked a question, she always found the answer and was very responsive by phone or email. The buying and closing process went very smoothly thanks to her. Three years later when it came time to sell the home we bought, Amanda again was incredible through the whole process. I would recommend Amanda to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area every time.

            - David Foy, Winchester VA
          • Amanda has been our realtor in the purchase of two properties. Our first purchase in 2017 went smoothly and we are in our dream home. The most recent purchase presented a few more challenges for us, but Amanda handled each issue with professionalism and thoroughness. The first challenge was in negotiating the price for the property. Amanda skillfully allowed us to purchase a wonderful property below the asking price. The next challenge was addressing issues that came up during the inspection, to include the need for an engineer to look at the foundation. All problems were addressed quickly at no cost to us. Finally, we needed to delay the closing date back a month and Amanda helped make this happen. Overall, we could not have had a better advocate than Amanda Downs. We have recommended her to others, and will definitely use her again.

            - Kathleen Stanley, Strasburg VA
          • After meeting with three realtors and interviewing a total of five, we choose Amanda Downs to represent us during the selling of our property. Her knowledge of the market, her enthusiasm and preparedness made it an easy decision. Amanda explained exactly how she would market our cabin and the reasons why. She explained the contract step-by-step so we knew exactly what to expect. During the process, she responded immediately to all my phone calls, texts and emails. All my questions were answered.Amanda, along with her photographer/videographer created an online presence showcasing our cabin which I thought was impressive. As a result of their talent and skills we received four offers the very first weekend! (All above our asking price) We closed in one month.Amanda has proven to be a great communicator and a strong negotiator. She is a real, credible and active agent. I highly recommend her. She exceeded all our expectations!

            - Patty Iannuzzi, Shenandoah County
          • I do not have words to explain how wonderful our experience with buying our house was. Amanda is professional yet personable, on top of everything all the time, works so hard for her clients and is so knowledgeable. I was dreading working with a real estate agent. But, as soon as I met Amanda I was so relived and knew she was the agent for us. If you do not use her you are making a huge mistake. She is amazing!!

            - Elizabeth Banks, Shenandoah County
          • Amanda was amazing to work with! She has a very in-depth knowledge of the market in Shenandoah, Page, and Warren counties and was able to alert us when new properties were coming onto the market at good prices. Amanda was also very helpful when looking at houses and had a keen eye for issues as we did many tours and walk-throughs. Amanda was also able to get offers together quickly and helped us through that process, which helped us get our home. Would strongly recommend working with her!

            - Owen Quinlan
          • Amanda is the best! She helped me with a challenging situation and was incredibly kind and helpful during the process. She is very knowledgeable about real estate and strategized to get me the best outcome.

            - Asha Depoy, Woodstock VA
          • My husband and I originally contacted Amanda because she sold my friend's home down the street from us and was highly recommended. At our very first meeting I was very impressed by Amanda's professionalism, enthusiasm, and tech savviness which would ensure our home would get the maximum exposure for selling. She presented a very comprehensive marketing plan that was highlighted by her attention to detail. Amanda and her photographer did an amazing job of showcasing our property with beautiful photographs and a 360 video. She did such a fantastic job of marketing our cabin, we received multiple offers in only 3 days after listing our property, and we sold our home over our asking price! Amanda made herself readily available via text messages, phone calls or emails to answer questions and concerns during the selling process. When a few problems trickled the day of closing, Amanda was there with a solution. We could not have been more pleased about our decision to hire Amanda as our real estate agent.

            - Cheryl Taylor, Mount Jackson VA
          • Amanda has a very sunny and soothing personality. She is amazing and right on point with everything .From the listing to the closing she was right on top of things and gets it done. She was very knowledgeable and gave us great advice about getting our house sold. You will not make a better choice in realators than Amanda.

            - Adria Chandler
          • My wife and I have bought and sold a number of properties over the last 10 years and Amanda is by far the best realtor we have ever dealt with! Amanda's experience, expertise and tireless efforts resulted in a number of offers above asking. Amanda went above and beyond in leading efforts to remediate some issues that came out of the inspection while my wife and I were out of state. Having Amanda on our team was truly a blessing!

            - Matthew Harbaugh, Edinburg VA
          • Amanda went way above her duties while selling our home. She is very professional and keeps you informed almost daily. It was such a joy working with her and I would use her again. She is a gem.

            - Brenda Tanner, Woodstack
          • It is a great pleasure working with Amanda over the years. She has been my agent in quite a few sales and rentals and she is the best. Back when the real estate market crashed we had a house on the market for 6 years before changing to Amanda and had two offers within a few month period. She is more like a friend than a Real Estate Agent to her customers and always responds quickly and professionally to Amy questions or concerns.

            - Harald Huttner
          • Amanda is the best realtor Ive ever worked with. She was aggressive, over communicated, worked hard and really went above/beyond the whole step of the way. I almost want to go through the process again because she made it so simple. There was a lot of moving parts to this sale and she never missed a beat. Thanks very much and will use you in the future.

            - Chris Dewey, Basye VA
          • Amanda was extremely helpful and knowledgeable with every situation I had. I have used Amanda twice for selling and purchasing and each time I am extremely pleased! She will be the only agent that I will use for my next purchase!Thank you Amanda for helping me make my dreams come true!Melissa S.

            - Melissa Schmitz, Maurertown VA
          • Weve used Amanda for years and she helped us purchase our first home and recently a piece of land to build on. Weve stayed in contact over the years and shes always kept us up to date on the current market and made herself available whenever weve inquired about anything . We can honestly say that we wouldnt have our current home or land without her professionalism, hard work, and expertise in the local real estate market. We will most definitely be reaching out to her again once we build and are ready to sell our current house.

            - Jason Erickson, Maurertown VA

          • Amanda is a fantastic agent that I worked with to purchase my first investment property in the Linden, VA area. Being an out-of-state investor, I relied heavily on her expertise of the area to guide my purchase decision. She was always quick to respond to any question or request I had and was integral in helping me put together winning offers in this competitive market. If you're looking for an expert agent in this area, look no further. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

          • My husband and I had a unique situation and Amanda was wonderful with helping us with our home purchase. She answered and questions we had no matter when it was. She was always on top of things. She is an amazing realtor and defiantly knows her stuff. We also needed help with closing costs and she was able to talk with the sellers and get that covered for us.

          • 6 months agoIf you want to close a deal in this competitive real estate market, you need a competent realtor to represent you. Without hesitation, Id highly recommend Amanda Dawns as your next realtor. She is a true professional and a go-getter. She went above and beyond throughout the entire purchasing process.I was looking to purchase a vacation home near the Shenandoah area. I found her online and reached out. Amanda was highly responsive from the beginning and very knowledgeable about her market. She always worked her schedule around mine and did her best to be present on every inspection. When a last-minute inspection had a schedule conflict with her own, she even found another realtor in her network to be present in place of her.Amanda was very transparent throughout the process, informing me about the risks and rewards when making certain decisions/offers. She always represented my interest over anyone else, including her own and the company she works for.It was a pleasure to have her as my realtor, and I look forward to working with her again

            - Thomas Cho, Front Royal VA

Because she honestly takes the time to get to know you, with Amanda, its not about her getting paid, shes completely about taking care of you and your needs!

          • Amanda is fabulous! She worked with us from a distance over the past year while we searched for our retirement home. She spent time to get to know us and understand our wants and needs. She was unfailingly patient and cheerful as we trotted her from one prospect to another. And then she hit the mark with a great house that meets all our expectations and worked all the details to make it happen. Thank you, Amanda!
