Contact Amanda:

Amanda is a consummate professional. I wholeheartedly would recommend her to anyone wishing to buyer or sell a home. She was sensitive to our specific needs/concerns and was always keeping us informed during the process. As others have said she is honest and genuine and puts her client’s best interests first. She makes recommendations without putting pressure on you and instantly carries out your requests. Simply put, she is the best realtor I have had the pleasure of working with and you will not find a better realtor in Central Texas or in Waco.

Amanda was a pure joy to work with. We are new to Texas and first time home buyers so really needed to be "guided by the hand" in the process and I can honestly say that Amanda exceeded our expectations and some more. She was always available and responsive and helpful with all the questions we had. Being that we were out of state she was such a great resource on so many aspects of our home buying experience, whether it was researching different neoghbourhoods, helping us get in touch with a lender or negotiating the terms of the sale. We felt truly taken cared for through the process and grateful for all she did for us.

~ Irena Powers

Amanda displayed all the positive traits you would look for in and during our purchase.. Her follow-up was impeccable,she handled everything with patience,and was always made herself readily available.

Kelly Realtors was well represented by Amanda.

~ Steve Breunig

I had owned my home for 30 years and had never really sold one on the open market. Amanda was my guiding hand in everything. She has lots of patience, and knowledge of exactly what to do and when to do it. She was a joy to work with. She always kept me informed on everything, and was always there to answer a question or give an explanation. She is very accessible and I always felt like I was in good hands with Amanda. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone needing a Realtor for anything.

I asked several friends in Waco which realtor they would recommend. They all immediately said, "Amanda!" She was AMAZING! I am a first-time buyer and she patiently walked me through every step of the process. She was willing and available to answer questions I had. With her extensive knowledge of the Waco housing market, Amanda helped me find the perfect house within my budget. I am so thankful for her kindness and guidance and would highly recommend her!

We are so pleased with our recent decision to purchase a home in Waco. This decision is the result of the initial one we made to follow the recommendation of engaging Amanda Nesbitt as our realtor. Amanda was knowledgeable, amiable, accessible, positive, and accommodating. What we appreciated the most was the way she quickly came to understand our needs and preferences, and respectfully attempted to address them. As we sit in our new home, we’re thankful that she was successful.

~ Denny and Gloria Rhule

We've actually worked with Amanda as our buyer's agent and recently as our sellers agent. She has great experience and knowledge of the marketplace! In both cases, she was great to work with and listened to our wants/needs. She was invaluable in helping with negotiations, and kept us informed throughout the transactions. Five star agent for sure. And kudos also to her top notch assistant, Courtney Maxwell for all she does behind the scenes! We highly recommend this team to anyone buying or selling in Waco!

~ Ernie Estela Smith

Amanda is the best of the best. We had a lower budget with a tricky wish list, and we were certain that we would not be able to find a home with everything we were hoping for, and we were okay with that. We were prepared to go with a tiny house outside of town, and Amanda offered instead to show us a home that hadn't hit the market yet, and had everything we looking for (and more), and it was below our budget! Amanda knows the market and the area really well which was especially helpful for us because we are not from Waco. She was always easy to reach, and even if she was unavailable, we were able to get the help we needed from her assistant Courtney who is awesome as well! Even though we were one of Amanda's lower budget clients she made us feel like we were her top priority. We are used to doing a lot of research when it comes to things like mortgage brokers, attorneys, insurers, roofers, inspectors etc., but Amanda was a one stop shop. If you ask, she will give you all the information you need for your specific situation. She never seemed like she was trying to make a sale, but rather that she truly had our best interests at heart. She is kind as well as tough; personable as well as professional; and relaxed as well as on the ball. She was a great negotiator during the option period, and when we were thrown curve ball after curve ball, she handled everything, and kept us on track with our original closing date. I could not recommend Amanda highly enough. It is hard to imagine anyone who could do a better job than she, and there is certainly no one else I would rather walk me through the long and potentially stressful process of purchasing or selling a home.

Amanda was knowledgeable and helpful. She gave me insights into the market and specific properties which helped inform my decision, but she was never pushy. Exactly what I wanted in a realtor. Thanks Amanda!

Amanda is great!
She was available any time we had questions and could always answer or explain things in terms we could understand. She made us feel like marketing and listing our home was her priveledge and not just her job. She went above and beyond all expectations we ever had for a realtor. Her assistant Courtney was also amazing. Both were so professional and kind. We feel we made two new friends as a result of our experience with Amanda and her team. We highly recommend her.

~ John and Jan

We could not have been more satisfied with Amanda’s help in selling our home. She was professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. Her consistent communication and outstanding responsiveness throughout the process was something we had never experienced with any other realtor. We highly recommend Amanda for all your realty needs!

~ Matt and Francesca Jensen

Amanda helped me with buying my FIRST home & I knew absolutely nothing about buying a home. She made me feel that she had the best interest for me from day 1. Amanda also had a tough side in regards to making sure the "seller" did what they said they would do per the contract. Shes made my buying experience so simple. I will not need another realtor ever from this point forward. See you in 5 years Amanda.

~ Paul Hesterlee

Amanda is truly amazing. She goes above and beyond. I highly recommend Amanda for all your real estate needs!

~ Sarah Satterfield

Amanda was fantastic from start to finish on our home purchase experience. Our initial contact and much of our process was handled via long distance and electronic technology, and Amanda made it happen seamlessly. Our home in Montana sold within one week, so we had to quickly plan a trip to Waco and squeeze in as many house viewings as we could in the short time that we had in town. We also had to coordinate the closing dates in both locations to line up with loading and then unloading the moving van. Amanda was great through the entire process, demonstrating vast knowledge of the area, tips and advice, and guidance in helping us to find the home that we wanted. She is friendly and helpful, including giving us tips on where to eat, names of doctors and dentists. We offer our highest recommendation of Amanda Nesbitt for assistance with your sale or purchase of a home.

~ Bill and Denise Rugg

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Amanda Nesbitt. Amanda recently assisted me with purchasing a new home in the Woodway area. This is the second time I have used Amanda and I could not imagine that there is a better realtor in the Central Texas area. Amanda intently researched all properties available and was knowledgeable about other properties that were not even listed yet. Once we decided on the best house for my family, Amanda’s work didn’t stop. She intensely worked to ensure all of the preparation for closing and moving were taken care of, and she was very patient with all of my questions and concerns as we completed the process. There is no doubt in my mind that I will continue to use Amanda Nesbitt for all future buying and selling needs!

~ Brent Merritt

I could not possibly give enough praise to Amanda! She made purchasing my first home such a wonderful experience. She was patient, she really listened to my feedback, and she diligently looked out for my best interests throughout the entire process. She was honest and genuine. She was always available. I put in my offer the week of Thanksgiving, and my closing was two days after Christmas and she never missed a beat. The only bad part about buying my house is that I don't get to have regular dates with Amanda anymore!

~ Cara Forney

Amanda is truly a pleasure to work with! We have purchased two homes with her help, and each time she was professional, knowledgeable, kind and helpful! My husband and I commented that we always feel like we are her only clients (obviously not the case), because she is so attentive and focused on exactly what we need. She answered all of our rookie questions and always had great recommendations. We have told so many people about her and will continue to do so! Amanda makes house-buying fun!

~ Berry Blake

We worked with Amanda for both selling our old home and buying our new home. Due to various obstacles outside of our or her control, both transactions were more complicated than normal. With her knowledge and experience, she guided us through the process seamlessly. She stayed in contact with us and kept us updated throughout the whole process. We will definitely use her again for future buying or selling.

~ Brandon Gage

Very professional and kept us informed at all times. Quick to respond to emails and proactively sent us updates without us having to request them. Would highly recommend and we plan on using her services again!

~ Julie Callen

Amanda is the best possible realtor you could ever hope for. She worked for us both as we bought our house and then again five years later when we sold it. Both experiences were amazing and have actually made it difficult to work with other realtors because she is just that good. She went above and beyond what is required to make sure that we got the best house and that our house sold at the best possible price with the greatest possible ease. She gave honest and helpful advice and even showed up at 6:00 am with paint and a sander at one point to help us out with some repairs (she also appeared on House Hunters with us, which was so cool). We recommend Amanda to all of our friends and they have all been ecstatic with her service. Buying or selling, Amanda is everything you could hope for in a realtor.

Amanda has represented me many times as a buyer and also as a seller. She has always gone above and beyond the normal expectations as a realtor. She has expert knowledge of the market and has always been spot on with values, helping get top dollar in sales and also getting the best price possible when buying. I could not speak to her professionalism and expertise highly enough.

Amanda was referred to me by a friend. From the first time we met at my mom's house she was very impressive. She was very knowledgeable about the market conditions and opportunities. She valued and ultimately helped me sell my parents home for quite a bit more than I expected. Throughout the process, she always communicated well and kept me updated. I would highly recommend Amanda.

Very kind, professional and knowledgeable about the area and amenities in each community. Helpful at giving her opinion without swaying buyer one way or another. Accommodating and realistic at the same time. We very much so enjoyed working with her!

We most recently listed our home for sale with Amanda, but we have used her in the past as our agent to purchase as well.
This is the third time we have called upon Amanda to assist us with our real estate requirements, and I can say without hesitation, that she has NEVER DISAPPOINTED!! Amanda is the ONLY agent we will ever call upon for future needs. Kelly should consider itself blessed to have her services. We used HER in prior years when she was with someone else. Not because of the other company, but because we wanted only Amanda working for us. She is someone who will go out of her way to assist her clients.
There is NONE BETTER than Amanda Nesbitt.

~ J.D. Baskin

Amanda represented us in the purchase of a condominium in Waco in the fall of 2016. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding real estate in Waco. She listened as we described the type of property we were interested in purchasing and then made wonderful suggestions regarding the pros and cons of each property. We did not strike gold right away but Amanda was patient, thorough and truly interested in helping us find the right property. Because of her hard work and diligence, we now own a condominium and couldn't be happier with our choice. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Central Texas.

~ Jason Waltman

This is short and sweet. I have been in business for decades and apreciate intelligence, talent and ability. Amanda has it all. She knows her business and she offers service. If you want a knowledgeable, quality professional working for you in sales or purchase of real estate, call her.

~ Harold Ray Emerson, D.V.M.

The best realtor I have ever had in my 45 years of buying or selling my houses

~ Craig Smith

I not only used Amanda as my REALTOR when I was a Buyer, but also a Seller. Amanda did an excellent job finding the perfect home from me. She showed me homes that met my criteria, while also staying in the desirable areas of town (with in my budget!). Although I went to Baylor I was not familiar with the safe and beautiful neighborhoods of Waco, Amanda new all the great pockets, streets and neighborhoods in town. We found a home in a week and closed getting a great deal. Amanda was so wonderful to work with I used her as my Sellers Agent as well. She did a great job marketing my home, staging and had a great photographer come out to take professional pictures. Amanda took care of everything as I had already moved to another city 9 hours away and handled the sell flawlessly. Amanda was not only a joy to work with but she was honest. I trust her and recommend Amanda to all of my Waco family and friends looking to buy or sell their home.

~ Katy Rhodes Burleson

Amanda worked with us to sell our property--she gave us great advice when offers came in lower than we wanted. She suggested we hold out for more and she was right. We got exactly what we wanted and her encouragement and patience helped us achieve our goal. Very kind and friendly to work with, we would use her again!!

~ Karen Howton

My wife and I worked with Amanda to buy our first home during the last few months of 2016. A coworker recommended Amanda to us, and we found that she was everything we wanted in a realtor and more. Amanda's patient and genuine approach was exactly what we were looking for. Our negotiation and closing process occurred during the busy Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and Amanda was consistently in touch with us despite the busy holiday season. We are so grateful that we found Amanda, and would strongly recommend her to any buyer or seller who is seeking a kind, thoughtful, and genuine realtor.

~ Jason Bushnell

Amanda was spectacular and provided the most professional assistance in purchasing an investment home. I've already recommended Amanda to a seller and would consider Amanda best in class!!

~ Scott Ozymy

My husband and I were so thankful for Amanda as she guided us through our first-time home buying experience. Amanda was incredibly helpful and always quick to answer our questions throughout the process. We have been in our home for nearly a year now and are so grateful to Amanda for helping us purchase a home that is such a great fit for us and for our budget. Amanda is very patient and an excellent communicator. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

~ Maxcey Blaylock

The best realtor we have ever dealt with. Amanda was an absolute pleasure to work with and she guided us through the entire process as we sold our home. I will never hesitate to use her again as her knowledge of the industry is second to none!!
