    Amanda Blanton



    Amanda Blanton was born in Arlington, TX in 1975. She lived in Texas and California before settling with her family in the Kansas City area. Amanda worked her way through her schooling waiting tables and working for the Disney Catalog. She advanced from order entry to customer service and on to technical support. Amanda married her husband in 1996 and in June of 1997 they welcomed their first daughter, Mikayla. Sophie was born 4 1/2 years later. Amanda worked in purchasing for over nine years. Her duties included vendor, project manager, and customer liaison, accounting, purchasing, inventory control, and company projections. Amanda took a turn in community association management as an assistant then got her CAM license but eventually realized that while being a CAM might be rewarding she felt called to upgrade her license and join the Real Estate Wise team at Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners and work side by side with her husband. Amanda is blessed to call this her work. She feels that all of the customer service, problem solving, and negotiation experience has given her a unique skill set to work from. In her free time Amanda volunteers at her church working in the children's ministry. She volunteered for years at a local school library helping kids find books and fostering a love of reading. She reads almost every night before bed to relax. Some of her favorites are Jane Austen or Tolkien (although she developed a fondness for the young adult genre while doing her volunteer work). She loves following the Kansas City Royals whenever possible. She is guilty of shamelessly bragging on her very talented daughters to anyone who might show interest in the subjects of young artists or riding horses so BEWARE!

    The team did an AMAZING job selling our home. From the PROFESSIONAL photography (no cell phone pictures), to their amazing marketing tools, to their willingness to attack problems that arise they are the BEST you can get! Sold our very unique property with 2 strong offers on the table in just over a month which is far below the average days on market in our area and price point. They are just an amazing, hard working team!!! Don't fall for the "hype" of agents who advertise on the radio!!! They spend all their money on trying to get big numbers of listings. This team spends their money on YOU, on Marketing YOUR property instead of themselves. I have and would recommend them to everyone I know. The entire team is highly knowledgeable in ALL aspects of real estate transactions from selling to buying to market analysis. THANK YOU AMANDA AND DAVID!!!!

    by Philip Kupersavage

    David and Amanda went above and beyond, still staying in touch and helping me even a year after they found me my dream home. Thank you guys. You are the best realtors for buying a new house AND for selling an old one. You are pretty great folks too!

    Amanda made our house-buying process a breeze! We were first time buyers and she helped explain the entire process and make us feel comfortable. Couldn't recommend her enough! She was always available, friendly, and helpful.

    by HJbuys

    Amanda was incredible in helping us find our dream home. She was extremely knowledgeable and always available for any questions we had about the home buying process. We always knew she had our best interest in mind every step of the way and it made buying a home stress-fee and easy! I would recommend Amanda to anyone ready to purchase a home!

    by The Felder's

    Our experience with Real Estate Wise, and more specifically Amanda Blanton, was a great one!! We had 2 full price offers within 12 hours of our listing going live. It is apparent that the team knew exactly how to market our home for the best possible outcome. This was our first experience selling a home and Amanda was always very informative and patient when answering our many questions. We would defiantly recommend her to everyone!

    by Cholley

    I cannot express enough how happy we are with the decision to choose Amanda & David as our Real Estate Professionals. Everything from communication to photos to scheduling was extremely professional. In the slow time of year (October listing) we had it sold in no time. She marketed our home perfectly and the price was right on point. Thanks guys!!

    by Sean

    Finding this house was near impossible. It is one of the hottest markets in atlanta. The whole process would have never been a success without the amazing guidance provided. The whole team went as far as sending targted flyer to every address in our search area knocking doors cold calling. There is no way I could have bought a house a nice as this for what we paid without there guidance and expertise. This is the third house I have purchased with them and I have sent all of my friends there way all with the same level of care. They treat everyone proper and over deliver. I cannot emphasize enough there integertrory honesty and knowledge of the business. They really make it happen even if you think it may be impossible.

    David is a great real estate agent to work with. My husband and I purchased our first home, and David was wonderful at walking us through the whole process. He found us a great home! Highly recommend David. KW is the best!

    by swimchik0989

    The service we received was exceptional. We were kept updated on viewing appointments and feedback. They were very knowledgeable about market prices and conditions. The process of selling our home went smoothly because of their expertise.

    by seroled68

    The Real Estate Wise team was completely amazing and I would recommend them to anyone selling or buying a home. We sold and bought a home through them and the entire process was professional and the epitome of what customer service should be. Our house was listed and under contract within a week which we didn’t expect to happen so quickly. We were then a little worried about finding a new home in time but our agent was very patient with us and listened to and respected our highly demanding list of things we wanted in our new home. She showed us so many homes and worked around our work and personal schedules and was even amazing with our kids when we had to bring them along to look at houses. The entire team at Real Estate Wise was very helpful throughout everything from initially listing to closing and have even been helpful with questions after we moved.

    by gwicker1671

    David and Amanda were fantastic to work with from start to finish! This is the second time we have bought and sold a home with them. I wish there were more stars to give! Professional and personable! I can't thank you enough.

    by user3593595

    David made the process of buying a home tolerable. He was available when I needed him, and if needed, his wife Amanda would also help. The process of buying a home is stressful, but all my questions and concerns were addressed quickly.

    by Carolyn DiGiandomeni

    David Blanton was highly recommended to us by a trusted friend. He did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed our weekends house hunting (it was fun!). We appreciated David’s experience and advice on the homes we looked at and considered. While we were under contract, David remained attentive and responded to our questions in a timely manner. At closing, we let him know we were going to miss hanging out with him on the weekends! We too highly recommend David and his Keller Williams/Real Estate Wise team if you are looking for a real estate team truly invested in their clients.

    by zuser20150209093706618

    David and his team are truly amazing! We had a very good experience selling our previous home and an even better experience buying our new house. David met with us and truly created a partnership were he shared his knowledge of real estate, his previous insight as an appraiser, and most importantly his unwavering need to be 100% honest during the entire process. From the time David and his team listed our house; we had it under contract 8 days later! As far as buying a house, I have to admit we were a very challenging family to please but he had the patience and kept assisting us the entire way!! He takes the time to listen and make sure that your family's expectations are not forgotten in the sometimes lengthy process of buying and/or selling your next home! David and his team at the Real Estate Wise really make sure you feel like you're not just another transaction!! If you're ready for a different type of real estate experience call the team at David and see for yourself!!

    I had the pleasure of working with Amanda on my first home purchase and she was great in helping me through the entire process. I am really happy with her work and would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

    by user69680828

    We were very impressed by the service of David and Amanda Blanton. They really know the market in the Gwinnett area. They advised us on how to best remodel the home without doing too much and they priced it perfectly. They advertised very well - we had many showings the first weekend it was on the market. We got the house under contract within 5 days and closed about a month later. I would use this team again!

    by mireille5

    David and Amanda Blanton were a real pleasure and very professional. They worked very hard to have the house I had on the market shown and were understanding when I turned down an offer I felt was too low. They were also very understanding when I later decided to keep the house, after all, it was the house I had grown up in. They even connected me with a local lender to get the refinancing I needed. I would highly recommend them and if the need arrises, look forward to working with them again.

    by david2324

    They not only found us our dream house they sold our old one. I was extremely picky and Amanda was very patient and listened to what I wanted.

    by kristy conklin

    Amanda Blanton showed me an amazing experience with the search of my new home. She was very concerned and understanding of what my needs and concerns were in my search. I would strongly recommend anyone to Amanda as your search for a home begins to get the best housing experience yet. Thanks again Amanda for you have done, and glad u stuck with me through tough times!!!

    by zuser20141006102114633

    David and his team were terrific to work with in selling our first home in March 2014. He came highly recommended by my coworker. When my husband and I called David to take a look at our house before listing it, David was very realistic and did not sugarcoat the possibility that we may have to bring money to the closing table in order to sell our home, due to declining home prices in our neighborhood. He was very patient in explaining the whole selling process to us and answering any questions we had. I really liked that David paid out of his own pocket to hire a professional photographer to take pics and a video to post on the listing. David's team met the photographer at the house, and they did the pics and video without us having to be at home. He was also prepared to hire a stager (at his expense) to help stage the home, but we did not need a stager's assistance. David knowledgably explained how much he thought the house could realistically appraise for, but he agreed to let us list at slightly higher. We got 3 offers in less than 24 hours, and sold for higher than listing (more than our neighborhood comps). David and his team were awesome during the negotiations and subsequent issues that popped up with the inspection report. We were able to close on the scheduled date. We were very pleased with David's work ethic and honesty, and would recommend his services to anyone who is buying/selling in his area. We are so sad that we can't use his services to buy our new house in TX!

    by maira2014

    David not only guided us in the house buying experience but also assisted in the sale of our home of 26 years. The whole experience from start to finish took about 3 weeks. He is very knowledgeable in his field and knows how to read people. We are very pleased with the outcome and strongly recommend David for your home buy/sale experience

    by shschnei102

    David was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls from day one. He also went out of his way with creative and out of the box approaches to finding us the perfect home for our growing family. I truly believe that he always had our best interest in mind and was a fantastic advocate for us during our first home purchase. I will most certainly be contacting David again in the future for any home buying/selling needs.

    by user1863223

    When I initially contact Mr. Blanton, I had never sold a home before and was very unsure of the process. He was very patient with me; explaining everything – often times over and over. He was always available; answering my phone calls, returning calls immediately and actually did everything, except the closing at my home. I did not have to meet him anywhere to sign papers or to have meetings – he always came to me. Also to his credit, I was going through a divorce during the sale of my home, so he did double duty. After meeting with me, he would meet with my soon to be ex husband to go over everything a second time – he never complained!!! Within 24 hours of putting my house on the market, we had three offers over asking price and were under contract within 3 days. He flooded the market with my listing and guided me to the best choice regarding the buyer. It was 28 days from the time we listed the property until we closed – which I have been told is unheard of. I was very lucky to have happened upon David and his staff. He is companionate, dedicated and knowledgeable. I have recommended him to several friends (one will actually close on the sale of her house today) and will defiantly use him in the near future when I am looking to purchase my next home.

    by toriadz121

    What can I say about David? He went above and beyond any expectation I had. Simply put, I would have never gotten the house I did for the price I did if not for him. He not only did that but put up with my fickle nature for 2 months. LOL. Thanks, buddy!

    by Mark Stenger

    David was extremely helpful.....We were very picky buyers & he never pressured us to look at a house outside of our parameters or place an offer... he truly wants his buyers to be happy and will go that extra mile to make sure you are satisfied! My experience with realtors was not the best at all (3 prior homes).......David Blanton is a great realtor! Made it so much nicer shopping for a home in a difficult situation. Highly recommended.

    by dwcourter

    David is awesome to work with. He knows the area very well. He is extremely responsive, always took my calls and answered my emails and txts. He truly cares that you are being taken care of. I relocated from NJ to GA and without him helping me every bit of the way, it would have been a nightmare.

    by philipkupersavage

    My husband and I had David Blanton help us with finding a home to rent. He made the process very smooth and easy. He was professional, kind, and trustworthy. We knew he wanted the best for us and we would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home. We were proud to have him as our agent.

    by Robin Oliver

    I was buyer for David's client, my deep image is David so patience when client impatience, David so nice when client struggle, David so humor when client stress, David so professional when client misunderstand, David so encourage when client almost give up. I were really lucky to met this wonderful realtor working with me, really appreciate David help me found lovely house for my family. David also help my friend sold the house, he did excellent job for the seller side too. We will definitely recommend David Blanton to all our friends or family members or co-workers if they need buying or selling their house.

    by tgsb888

    As a first time home buyer, my husband and I were very naive and cautious in the home buying process. David came highly recommended to us and we could not be more pleased with our experience. We were under a time crunch to find and purchase a home, and David made himself available at our convenience. He is friendly, extremely helpful, and a fantastic negotiator. I would highly recommend David and will definitely use him again when selling and/or purchasing a home.

    by RachCopeland

    Mr. Blanton helped us find the home of our dreams and he did by listening to what we wanted. He taught us about the housing market, guided us in the direction we wanted to go. He kept us calm when things didn't seem to go our way in the beginning and stayed with us to the end. Thanks Mr. Blanton

    by user30821228

    As we were relocating to the Atlanta area from out of town, we found David to be quite helpful in locating the perfect house for us. Our current home afforded us with complete privacy,due to the wooded acre that we have. As we wanted to downsize, but still wanted that feeling of privacy, without the upkeep, yet didn't feel ready to join the senior living, David found the perfect combination in Reunion Country Club Living. We still have some acreage (while it is greenspace, in the back), I still can look at the sunrise, and stand at the sink, and look out over the woods, yet we don't have the upkeep that goes with it. David is very professional, and can keep you looking at as many houses as one wishes, and with a pleasant sense of humor to make looking more fun.

    by user2371099

    I highly recommend David as a realtor. He is willing to spend a large amount of time looking for homes with the criteria that you are looking for. He is also willing to take as much time that is needed to look at each and every house you chose to look at. In one of the appointments that I had with him, we viewed 19 homes. Viewing this many homes in one setting it time consuming, but he was willing to stay by my side for each one that I wanted to see, even if this meant getting back to the office at midnight, which did occur. He also went out of his way to take me to view homes that was out of his local areas. He was always quick to respond back when I called or emailed about anything. I could also find homes own other website and send the listing to him and he would check to see if the area was a good location for people with kids, school zones, and the availability of the property. After viewing 36 homes, I finally found the one that David located for me and my child and it has been the perfect home for the two of us.

    by user6529781

    I would recommend David Blanton to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. He listened to our wants and needs and was able to help my husband and I find find a house that met both of those. His background in appraisals was also very helpful. He could take us into a neighborhood and tell us what company built the houses, what they would look like inside, and how well the houses were built based on his experience. With school and work it was difficult for my husband and I to find time to go look at homes together and David made sure he was available all day on any day we could go look.

    by user2290977

    Working with David was a real pleasure. Wer had a long list of houses in South Gwinnett that we were interested in looking at and through taking us to a few and talking with us he was able to help us narrow down what we were looking for even when we were sure ourselves. His knowledge of the area helped to find a neighborhood we liked and his experience as an appraiser helped guide us in making a good offer on a home. David was helpful from the first house we looked at straight through signing on our house. He continues to be helpful almost a year later and because of our experience buying a house with him, we consider him to be a good friend.

    by user8524266

    We just got wonderful house with nice location from David Blanton agent at Keller Williams, he gave us professional, friendly services and he is a trustworthy agent. We will definitely recommend our friends to him for buying home.

    by BlasterChou

    Amanda was amazing! She helped us find and buy our first home! The entire process was a breeze all thanks to her!

    by Hannah Jennings

    Amanda was great at helping us with a long distance purchase. She attended inspections for us when we were unable to and explained items the inspector pointed out. From first look at the house to closing was just 4 weeks with Christmas and New Years holiday in between!
