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 Unviersity of Florda before realizing I did not have the same passion for engineering as I did for ballet or real estate! I moved to Breckenridge, CO 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 and Celebrate Your Home co-founder, Daniel Eckart, 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, 4 (and-a-half), and Bridget, 2!  You may run into us enjoying our favorite family activity-walking the sidewalks, beaches, or parks!

Active in the community, I'm a board member of the Port Jefferson Economic Development Committe, and love my role as the chair of the Farmer's Market committe. Dan, serves on the board of the Port Jefferson Business Improvement District, and we have a vested interest in the health of our downtown economy. We are also active members of the Mount Sinai Yacht Club, the Port Jefferson Parent Teacher Association, and the Three Village 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!

In 2010 I was named #1 Top Producing Agent in my company. In 2011, I joined forces with my associate Jane Parker, and we moved to our current home at Realty Connect USA. I'm committed to learning, growing and sharing with others; and in addition to earning my Certified Buyer Representive and Senior Real Estate Specialist Designations, am currently working on obtaining the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation. I attribute my success to my growing list of satisfied customers, clients and friends.

As this was our first home purchase, we came into the situation not knowing much. Amanda's expert advice and guidance helped us every step along the way. She provided fantastic insights while assessing the quality and value of each house that we looked at & she made sure that her schedule was conducive to ours. There were multiple occasions when we expressed interest in seeing a house the same day that it became available. And each time, she rearranged her schedule to make it happen. We couldn't be happier that we chose Amanda to assist us in this purchase
Amanda was highly recommended and for good reason—she walked us through the first time buying experience, recommended excellent professionals for inspection and contracts, and above all left us feeling confident in our choices.
Amanda has that "it factor" when it comes to selling real estate. She is a very gentle, kind, good-spirited person. She made my wife and I feel very comfortable along the way. We were very difficult buyers too! Amanda remained patient, understanding, and helpful when we had difficulty getting a loan. She found us a loan officer that was able to get the loan we needed. Her years of experience has enabled her to build professional relationships with the right people, at the right time, for any situation, in order get a deal done right. We ended up buying a historic house. She even found us an expert home inspector for us that specialized in antique properties. There is a lot of nuances to real estate and you want to have the right person with you when making a huge financial decision. Amanda Eckart is that person!
Amanda is honest, reliable, and committed to her clients! In the past 10 years she has helped me work through the purchase of three homes, two of which were very difficult. Amanda always maintains grace and professionalism, no matter how challenging the situation is. I will only use Amanda Eckart for buying and selling homes on Long Island!
Amanda made the entire house hunting process a wonderful experience. She took the time and had the knowledge of every house we went into. We went to a lot of homes and never once did she rush us.
Amanda is a fabulous agent! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent who is caring, knowledgeable, patient, understanding, and effective.

Amanda is a warm and wonderful person. If you want a Realtor who will treat you like family then go no further!! She is knowledgeable and hard working and she gets the job done.
Amanda Eckart is absolutely the professional you want on your team when buying and/or selling your home in Long Island. She not only has express first hand knowledge of the area, but she has a warm and nurturing way of presenting it. At no time did I ever feel rushed or pressured as I had with other agents in the area, instead, I felt like she presented the facts in a cool manner and pointed out the pros and cons of each which gave me all of the quality information needed to make a great decision. Although I was not a first time homebuyer, I was a first time homebuyer in New York. Amanda took her time, introduced me to several others and allowed me to choose the other members of my team necessary to make a smooth purchase. Even when I brought on one of my team previously used, she was happy to work with them and integrated them into the "NY way of doing things". It was a breeze. Amanda was always there for me over the phone and in person. She made me feel that I was her only client and always responded to phone calls, texts, and e-mails in a timely fashion, (even when I was not so kind with the time of day or day of the week) She truly understands the urgency that this process sometimes requires and always seemed to rise to the occasion. Once I found a property to move into, that's when the real fun began. Amanda's knowledge of Comps in the area and the position of the local economy really gave us an upper hand in negotiating. She could whip out sales numbers and addresses off the top of her head and negotiated a much better deal than I ever could. (and she did this all with a smile and very cool demeanor). Amanda likes to call herself "The Real Estate Nerd", but I think she should be called "The ......no, maybe that is the correct nickname for her because she definitely is a Master of Real Estate on Long Island.
Amanda Eckart is the best of the best! She is knowledgeable, friendly, responsible, and honest. She is very familiar with many neighborhoods in Suffolk County, Long Island, and has friends/connections throughout that she can draw upon when she wants to seek out additional information. She has helped me with issues before, during, and after the process of purchasing two homes. I email or text her with follow up questions frequently and always value her opinion. I appreciate that she worked with me and my husband for several years before we eventually purchased our dream home. She was never pushy at all. Instead she was extremely patient and eager to help our family find the perfect home for us!
Amanda rocks! We are very pleased working with Amanda. She is familiar with local real estate market and is able to provide professional suggestion and information. She never pushed us to make a decision. She is very responsible and patient. We finally found our dream house with her help. Based on our experience, we will definitely recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking of a home.
Amanda was hands down the best part of our home buying experience. She was the one person we always felt we could count on. She was always reachable, on top of things, and helpful. And, she was able to help talk us through the more stressful events along the way. We really lucked out finding Amanda, and if any friends or family were to move in this area, we would enthusiastically recommend her to them.
I had been trying to sell my house for more than five years with another Realtor. I wish I had used Amanda's services from the beginning. Her knowledge of the market really helped when it came to pricing the house, and I had an offer within days of listing the house for sale. I highly recommend Amanda to anyone thinking about selling (or buying) a home. She is smart, professional and very helpful.
Amanda has been extremely helpful and competent in helping us to sell our house. For a large part of the process, we have been abroad in Switzerland and Amanda always kept an eye on our property while we were away. Amanda has also been excellent in getting various items in the house fixed up pre-sale and while the house was in contract.
Amanda is an excellent agent! She listened to us and only showed us only homes that met our needs and requirements. She was there for us every step of the way. Even after the closing, she was there for us making sure after we moved in, that everything went smoothly.
Amanda was very efficient and reliable. She was also very patient and understanding of our needs in the quests to find our new home.
Amanda Eckart is the BEST. She is knowledgeable, friendly, thoughtful, and creative. She is also patient -- she helped my husband and I search for the right home for over 2 years! I have now used Amanda to purchase two homes and have been extremely satisfied with her services.
An absolutely superb realtor: Knowledgeable, conscientious, prompt, efficient, strong initiative, patient, and very, very pleasant to deal with. I have dealt with many realtors, and have bought and sold seven homes, and she is by far the best. If she didn't know something, she'd say so and FIND OUT. She gave frank opinions of condition and pricing, and actually saved us much money with her advice. I cannot recommend her too highly.

Having Amanda on my side to buy my first house definitely made the process easier and less intimidating. She went out of her way to accommodate my unique schedule when looking at homes, and her persistence kept the process moving along as quickly as possible. I would recommend her without hesitation.
Amanda helped us to find a rental investment property. I am a Chief Financial Officer and work with many consultants etc. on a daily basis. Amanda is very good in what she does. She knows the market perfectly, is very reliable, always on-time, has great advice and is never pushy. A true consultative sales approach and great experience.
Amanda is smart,hard working and a good judge of marketing strategies.She persevered to sell our home in a very difficult market.Also she is personable and easy to work with .
We are so thankful we could go through the buying and selling experience with a realtor we could trust. Uncertain how we would sell our home in an unsteady market, Amanda was there to offer sound advice and strategy. She uses different types of media to reach a broad spectrum of buyers. She is also very attentive to details and moving forward with selling process. As for the buying... Amanda went above and beyond to help us find the right home for us. We had some very specific needs and she dug deep to help us find the right place. We found Amanda to be very knowledgeable and very patient as we survey tons of homes. She never imposed her opinion about a home unless you asked for her insight. I was glad to have her on my side as we negotiated with home owners and I appreciated not being pressured into any sale. We did have difficulties with our seller and I am very grateful for the emotional support, her attentiveness, and her willingness to intercede to move things forward. Amanda has been in the realty business for many years and I can say she is a professional who will work with her clients. She has the right skills, she has the right experience, and she is dedicated to her work. We trust and recommend her to everyone.
When deciding to search for a new home for me and my family I felt a bit overwhelmed and confused......Just didn't know where to begin. I was introduced to Amanda Eckart through a mutual friend and instantly felt a sense of comfort. Amanda listened to our needs, wants, limitations and financial concerns and reacted accordingly. She knew more about our town and local area than most people who have lived here 50 years......impressive!!! She eagerly spent hours showing our home doing open houses and giving helpful hints and advice that I never would have thought of myself. Amanda was so professional yet with that......I want to be her best friend approach. She is not interested in selling someone a Box to live in but in helping people find a home that they can enjoy and grow with their family and to be part of a community. Our experience with Amanda has been wonderful, I have recommended her to many friends and colleagues all with rave reviews. I hope you all find the same experience I did and can find that perfect home for you and your family....WE DID!!!!
Amanda is wonderful to work with! She has helped me with two properties and assisted me every step of the way. She is thorough and very responsive. Thank you Amanda!
Amanda found us the house we wanted in the precise neighborhood we requested. She started the process by taking us to several homes to get a sense of what we wanted. When we came close to submitting a bid on another home, she kept an eye on the market and took us to see our dream house before she would let us submit a bid on something that, in retrospect, would not have been a good fit. She really listens and is not invested in pushing buyers to make a move. Throughout the process with a difficult seller, she made sure that we understood what was happening at every step. I have recommended her to colleagues and friends. You can't do better!
Amanda was very friendly, thorough and professional throughout the process of buying our home. We took a long time (years) looking at homes before we were ready to buy. She never pressured us, and always helped us think through the pros and cons of each particular house. When it came time to negotiate on the house we chose (and eventually bought), it was clear that Amanda had a lot of knowledge about how and what to negotiate -- this comes from her in-depth knowledge of the local market as well as national market trends. I was just so pleased having Amanda as our agent. She's great!
Amanda Eckart is the consummate professional! When I was looking for a home she was with me every step of the way. From investigating and showing me properties, to helping with inspections and various other incidentals, Amanda never wavered in her commitment to me, her client. Amanda continues to follow up and keep me in the loop as far as market trends are concerned which is very helpful in this economy. I have recommended Amanda to many of my friends and colleagues in the area and they have always been very grateful to me for doing so. She’s just wonderful!

Amanda went above and beyond to help sell our house in a market (2007-2008) that was very difficult. It took awhile, but the house sold. When we were having our yard sale before the move, Amanda showed up to help out. She helped us in so many ways... finding a mover, helping with financing and finding a storage unit. During the journey of preparing to sell, the open houses, the yard sales, and finding a new home... Amanda was there for us... and we have a new friend! Thank you, Amanda!!
After listing our house with other agents, we were so thankful to find Amanda. She is an amazing real estate agent. We HIGHLY recommend using her for buying or selling or both ! We sold our house with her and hired her as our "buyers agent" because she is THAT good. And with her help we found a house we love !! She's professional, she really knows her stuff !
Amanda is very knowledgeable and helpful. She spent a great deal of time with us. She sold our house and was also our agent for the house we purchased. She put a great deal of effort into serving as our agent, and got us terrific deals on both sides. Even after we closed, she was a constant source or information for carpenters, electricians, and other service providers. We are extremely satisfied with her service and would strongly recommend her to anyone.
