About My Business:
Managing Appraiser / Real Estate Broker / REALTOR®
Amanda entered the field of appraisal at the recommendation of her mother (who is also an appraiser for Creekside, see Roberta Malone) in 1997. In her first year, she completed over 300 appraisals. Shortly after getting her appraisal trainee's certificate, Amanda decided that adding real estate sales to her portfolio would be beneficial. Amanda has many years of experience in sales, and leverages that experience in real estate. The next year, while still doing appraisal full-time, she acted as the buyer's agent in multiple real-estate transactions. "Having been in sales myself, I understand both points-of-view in real estate transactions, and what it takes to forge an agreement." Today, Amanda is a North Carolina State-Certified Residential Appraiser, and the Managing Appraiser at Creekside.
It has been said that very few people enjoy what they do for an occupation, "I am very fortunate in that I am able to get up every day and do to a job that I enjoy, and know that I am helping people." To be able to select the right home for a couple or help determine the best price for someone to sell their home is a valuable service. As our company grows, Amanda's determination to not sacrifice quality for quantity ensures that, "Standards and expectations exist only to be exceeded."
In March of 2005, Amanda was approved by the North Carolina Appraisal Board to become a Residential Appraisal Prelicensing Course Instructor. Beginning a new chapter in her portfolio, she will begin teaching in May of 2005. "My commitment to quality has always been first, but my desire to become a better appraiser and to help others has always been a goal of mine, and this will allow me to do both."
On February 4, 2006 she married Jason Rivera at oceanside ceremony at the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico. They live at Lake Royale full time. Jason owns and operates Lakeside, Inc, a full service boat house building company. Since he works and lives at the lake this gives them the perfect opportunity to enjoy lakeside living but also be able to maintain successful businesses.
On September 27, 2006, they welcomed their first child, Joshua. On March 15, 2008, they had a daughter this time, Megan.
"Our small business has grown so much over the last few years, but our commitment to make every client feel like our only client will ensure our future success."
