We make you smarter about real estate
Get to know Amanda Eckart...
As a result of frequent moves throughout my childhood, I quickly developed a passion for the home search. Growing up, I spent most Sunday mornings perusing the Real Estate section of local newspapers, finalizing our open house itinerary for the weekend. After retiring from my career as a ballet dancer early, in search of a "more normal life", I began searching for other fulfillment. I survived a few years as and engineering student at the University of Florida before realizing I did not have the same passion for engineering as I did for ballet or real estate! I moved to Breckenridge, Colorado where I became an Associate Broker and worked for an elite agency in one of the "hottest" real estate resort towns in the country. After a short time honing my skills, I quickly moved my way up to office manager. The years spent practicing real estate outside of New York, has brought a much greater understanding of buyers who are relocating from other states, and how varied real estate practices can be. After receiving a proposal from my now-husband, we relocated to his home town of Port Jefferson, New York, which we considered to be the ideal location for starting our family. I returned to school to finish my degree in Economics, graduating from Stony Brook University in 2006. I use my degree to stay on top of economic trends within the industry, and truly consider myself to be a local area market expert.
Currently, Dan and I reside in the village of Port Jefferson, with our two daughters Noelle, 10 and Bridget, 8! You may run into us enjoying our favorite family activity-walking the sidewalks, beaches, or parks!
Active in the community, I am proud to serve on the board for the Royal Education Foundation, have served for many years on the Economic Development committee, and am a member of the local Chamber of Commerce.
I enjoy networking and sharing ideas with other real estate professionals who are looking to make the real estate process better for their buyers and sellers. I think out of the box with various technology tools. Using the web and specialized marketing software allows me to my clients buy and sell their home(s) efficiently-and I believe efficiency is essential in turning around our current market!
Since 2010 I have consistently ranked in the top 1% of agents on Long Island, growing and sharing with others. In addition to earning my Certified Buyer Representative and Senior Real Estate Specialist Designations, recently obtained the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. I attribute my success to my growing list of satisfied customers, clients and friends.
