"As first time home buyers, Amy's guidance was critical to successfully purchasing our home. Amy was genuinely focused on finding the right home for us. During closing Amy kept on top of all the stakeholders and looked out for our best interest one-hundred percent. Could not have asked for a better realtor!" - Debra Taylor
I take great pride and enjoyment in educating and empowering my clients. Whether it’s helping someone realize a lifelong dream, make a key investment, or close a necessary life chapter, I am thrilled to be a part of the solution.
"Amy is a fantastic realtor. She patiently took me to locations all over Northern Virginia, showing me properties until we found the right home. The house I put an offer on had competitive bids. Amy put together a strategy to make my offer attractive to the seller. This allowed me to win the home. Thank you Amy for all your hard work on my behalf." - J. Bryce Stock
It is my expertise in sales, marketing, and strategy combined with my passion for community that make me a valued resource to my clients.

Originally from Upstate New York (Can I get a Spiedie? A slice of Cold Cheese Pizza? You can keep your Garbage Plate but you better share ½ that Beef on Weck!) I’ve now lived and worked in the DC Metro area for over 20 years. I am married to my favorite person, a Northern Virginia native, and together we bought, gutted and rebuilt our home in Fairfax with our own 2 hands! We have 2 wonderfully silly daughters, and a dog named Ellie. We love our family time - hiking in the Shenandoahs, canoeing at Burke Lake, playing at Clemyjontri, visiting the animals at Frying Pan Park, and attending our many amazing local festivals. Brett and I have also been known to enjoy our local wineries!
“ Amy is the consummate professional. You won’t find a harder working agent, and her personality makes her wonderful to work with.” – Maryann Conner
"Amy was so amazing to work with. Her expertise enabled me and my husband to get our dream home, in the craziest sellers market! But even before that her amazing guidance helped us to eliminate most of our angst and stress when we were selling our home. We got top dollar all because of her amazing advice and strategy. She made us feel heard, she was patient and she always made sure she held our hand every step of the way! What impressed us both was her honesty and transparency. Words cannot express how happy and blessed we feel that we had Amy by our side every step of the way. Thank you Amy." -Leslie Weaver
“Amy is a very thorough and professional individual who has great positive energy! From the minute you work with her, she will listen to your needs and requirements and is committed to working with you to find your dream home. She tends to go above and beyond with her service and will keep you informed every step of the way and this is what sets her apart from other agents. I highly recommend AMY as your realtor!” – Kris Schwendinger
"Amy was wonderful to work with. She gave us great advice about things to do to make our home more appealing to buyers and was instrumental in helping us sell our home quickly. She went out of her way to market our home and got us an above list price offer the first day it was on the market." -Carol Johnson
"How can I do justice to the level of service Amy provides? Words like “exemplary” and “excellent” come to mind, but if there are words that to you convey a greater expression of admiration, please use those instead! Buying a home (as I was) during a hot seller’s market is quite a stressful endeavor that doesn’t stop at finding that perfect home. Indeed, I’d argue that it is the period afterward that is the most nerve-wracking. Crafting an offer, scheduling inspections, understanding the documents, AND keeping track of it all would tax the abilities of even the most organized among us. And yet, somehow, Amy bridged the gap between the chaos and peace of mind. She explained EVERYTHING in as much detail as I needed and wanted. She anticipated issues and addressed them. She was seemingly ALWAYS available (to the point that I kept having to remind myself she had other clients). She not only took care of the scheduling, but produced a spreadsheet that detailed what needed doing—and when—for Every. Single. Step. WOW. She very literally exceeded my expectations in all possible ways: ease of approach, personality, organization, professionalism, and—especially—care. Not once did I get the sense that Amy developed the kind of detachment that often characterizes those that work in customer-oriented industries. The home buying experience with her was, in every way, superb! How good is she? I suggested to her (only half-jokingly) that she get licensed in every state I might conceivably want to live in at some point in the future, just so she could be my agent again! Amazing amazing AMAZING experience! " - Darren Natale
“Amy was an amazing agent. She represented us as home sellers and we could not have been happier or more satisfied with our experience and results. Amy worked diligently to make the entire operation run smoothly and went well above standards to make sure we were happy all along the way. She produced an incredible result and sold our property within 48 hours of the first showing. I would highly recommend working with her if you have the chance.” – Chad Sthole
“Amy is a dedicated professional who always keeps her client's interest at the forefront. I have been incredibly fortunate to work with her for the last five years, and am continually impressed with the time, effort and care she puts into everyone of of her customer relationships. In addition, she is just a wonderful person who is easy to speak with and is a great listener. Amy is a true partner with any potential home owner or buyer she works with, and won't stop working until the client is satisfied. She receives my highest recommendation.” – Don Carnevale"
“Amy is the consummate professional. We've worked together for a number of years and I've been witness to her preparation, dedication, attention to detail, passion for the best customer experience, and follow through. Amy brings a wealth of value add to every project to which she is apart of.” – Allison Banks

“Amy is extremely professional. She always has her client's best interests at heart and will truly work hard on their behalf.” – Kathleen Ecker
“I have had the tremendous pleasure of working with Amy as a teammate for the last 10 years! She has an incredible work ethic and her attitude is positive even in the midst of the most challenging situations. Having built her beautiful home from the ground up she has an incredible eye and a deep understanding of what makes for a quality house. I strongly recommend working with Amy for this very important decision!” – Julie DeMarco
