There’s a constancy about Atlanta real estate for Amanda Strawser, having grown up in a neighborhood that became one of the city’s largest commercial development projects of the 1980s. Set amid expanding highways and burgeoning office buildings, the changing backdrop of her childhood engendered a respect for place, an appreciation for architectural significance, and a reverence for the forest that has fostered Atlanta’s charm for centuries.
Amanda began her residential real estate career over fifteen years ago with Harry Norman, Realtors, when it remained Atlanta’s largest, independently-owned residential real estate company. While there, she distinguished herself as a Top 20 Transaction Leader and worked on fundraising committees within the Atlanta Board of Realtors benefitting Habitat for Humanity and other local outreach efforts. Over the past decade, her work was exclusively civic-minded, having served as a City of Atlanta NPU-A advisory board member and alumni chairperson for Christ the King School in Buckhead. Amanda is currently education chairperson for the Morningside-Lenox Park neighborhood association and a volunteer with FurKids, the southeast’s largest, no-kill animal shelter. Amanda was recently honored by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund ONE Group for her professional, civic and philanthropic endeavors. She has a public relations degree from the University of Georgia and has written human interest pieces for local projects and artists.
Amanda recently joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties at the invitation of longtime associates and industry leaders within the firm. Generous referrals from friends and former colleagues contribute to the rewarding success of her business and keep her focused on fulfilling the needs of her clients. The spirit of negotiation and the excitement of “finding home” for a family motivate her spirit and inspire her practice.
Amanda recently moved back to Atlanta after spending a few years in Charleston, SC, where she experienced antebellum grandeur and scenic runs on the Cooper River bridge. She now resides in Morningside with her family and rides her bike in Piedmont Park and on the Beltline. She looks forward to helping you write the next chapter of your life story in an extraordinary new home.
