Welcome to the team, Amanda + Spencer!
What is your name, where are you from, and where do you currently live?

When you’re not busy in real estate, what do you enjoy doing?
Whether it’s having families over for dinner, taking our kids to local events, or coaching in the Ankeny schools, we are very involved and love to spend time in the community.
What did you do before you became a Realtor?
Amanda: “I am going on my fourth year in real estate selling both new construction and pre existing homes. (I am newly licensed, but have a 5 year background in the real estate market) We both previously worked for a local builder and have gained a large knowledge base of the des moines metro real estate market and the building process for our clients who go that route”
Why are you passionate about being a REALTOR®?
Amanda: “For me, after meeting with the builder’s clients, I realized that I love helping people navigate through the stressors of buying or building a home and being a calming voice to reassure and guide them.”
What are three words your clients use to describe you?
Patient, thorough, genuine.
Why did you choose C21®?
We chose Century 21 because of the leadership. The broker and owners here are readily available and eager to help agents succeed. Being encouraged to grow your own business while working under brokerage is something that stuck with me. Century 21 is about the big picture and their leadership sets great examples of that.
What do you like about the culture here at C21®?
The dynamic at Century 21 is very team oriented. That is hard to find in most sales enviornments. They truly work as a team, play as a team, and succeed as a team.
What advice do you have for new agents?
The best thing to do is research multiple brokerages, talk to different networking groups, and just get your name out there.
What’s your favorite neighborhood in Des Moines/Ankeny/Ames?
Amanda: “I would have to say my favorite area is the development I had the opportunity to oversee while working with Classic Builders, the Villas at Stonehaven. Having the opportunity to help people who are looking to downsize and find or build their dream is my passion.”
