Amanda Merrington came into Real Estate with a legal and property background spanning over two decades. A qualified lawyer, Amanda has practiced in the areas of civil litigation, relationship property and property law/conveyancing. Amanda now applies the same dedication, integrity and knowledge towards providing a top class service and achieving exceptional results for her vendors.
Having spent time away from the Waikato for study, and her profession, Amanda was raised in this region that she and her family, are proud to call home. Amanda has local knowledge and a commitment to keeping informed and up to date with market trends, which together with her strong network of contacts, allows her to keep her finger on the pulse, and gives her clients the advantage in an often competitive market.
As a parent, a professional, and investor, Amanda understands the different needs and goals of both her vendors and purchasers, and strives to ensure the next step in real estate for each, is a well managed, and successful one.
When Amanda is not indulging in her passion for Real Estate, she can be spotted doing the school run, trying to get her kids up on skis out on Lake Karapiro, or fueling her busy lifestyle with some of the fabulous coffee that Cambridge’s local cafés offer up.
I engaged Amanda to sell my Cambridge property as I was living in Queenstown and needed someone on the ground I could trust. I had undertaken extensive due diligence of the agents in Cambridge and Amanda’s background of commercial law was an indication of the level she could operate at. After several discussions with Amanda about the Cambridge residential market and different options for selling, I decided to list with her and sell by way of a tender process. The phone conversations with Amanda prior to listing had given me confidence in her ability, but the level of service I received once I’d formally engaged Amanda blew me away. Amanda was committed and hugely motivated. She genuinely wanted the best outcome, even if it involved more work at her end. Everything from staged furniture to plumbers was taken care of, and Amanda spent countless hours cleaning the house with her husband to make it presentable. Amanda even loaned her bar stools and home furnishings for the five week open home/private viewing period to give it a more homely feel. The effort Amanda had put into the presentation of the property had completely transformed it. I’d often be on the phone to Amanda whilst she was at the house, adding her little touches and ensuring it was immaculately presented. When the property was on the market I still had some gear in the garden shed and Amanda’s husband even packaged it up for me. Little things like this make a huge difference when you’re in a different part of the country. Throughout the listing period, Amanda kept in constant communication and offered suggestions to ensure greater market exposure and reach. She was always keen to listen to potential purchasers feedback and comments and adapt accordingly. Amanda has a great way of creating genuine relationships and I believe the sale was successful because Amanda had created a rapport with the purchasers. I was extremely happy with the sales result we achieved and I highly recommend Amanda to anyone who is thinking of selling their property in the Cambridge area. It was such a seamless process, I had full trust in Amanda throughout the entire period and she exceeded my expectations with a fantastic sales result.
Warm Regards, Ben Stewart
Amanda has represented me in a legal matter and it was immediately clear during our first meeting that honesty and integrity are the values that she lives by. Always much more than expert legal advice, she was reassuring and supportive which made an enormous difference during a very difficult time and I will always be extremely grateful. I would like to wish Amanda the very best as she embarks on her new career, her ethics and personality will mean everyone she represents are in the very best of hands
We cannot recommend your services enough and thoroughly enjoyed selling our house with you. You were professional and honest, but most importantly you only had our best interest at heart. We were so well informed throughout the entire process and your enthusiasm for finding our buyer exceeded all expectations. Your friendly and hardworking nature made everything easy and we have no hesitation in recommending you. Thank you for getting us such a wonderful result.
Having owned our property for 16 years and spent thousands of dollars and countless hours upgrading every part of the property we obviously were very careful in selecting an agent when it came time to sell.
We had 3 appraisals done and Amanda stood out well above the rest with her obvious passion for providing solutions for people, eye for detail, realistic assessment of value, and balance between friendly approachability and professional knowledge of the Housing Market and Industry in general.
Having originally been considering selling on Trade Me we set Amanda a challenge and she well and truly exceeded all expectations by slogging her way to victory in between school runs, after hours, weekends, and double appointments.
Our advice to anyone considering selling would be to do yourself a favour and give Amanda a call.
