About Amanda Phillips
Amanda is a native Virginian, born and raised in Northern Virginia, and has been living in Stafford, VA since 2003. After graduating high school, she moved to Ohio and was able to acquire knowledge and skills that are only taught through life experiences. While living on her own in Ohio, she worked full time while attended college full time. She was extremely grateful to complete her BA in Sociology with a minor in criminology from Miami University of Ohio. Considering the responsibilities she faced as a young adult, this was certainly one of her proudest accomplishments.
After completing her BA, she decided that the criminal justice field was not for her (yes, her primary focus was to finish college so changing majors was not an option). She was excited to accept a position at a retail department chain as an Assistant Buyer. After all, what young lady would have passed THAT up! Shortly thereafter, she moved into a Merchandise Analyst position, where she learned business principles, marketing, and analytical skills.
Although this was an enjoyable and fascinating experience for Amanda, she wanted to move back to Virginia so she could be close to her family, and what a wise decision it was. Her career flourished in the flooring industry where she worked as an Account Manager handling new-home builders and commercial builders. This was another fun and exciting opportunity in which she handled negotiations, contracts, inspections, on-site visits, model home selections, and flooring designs. She also worked with realtors, advising their clients on flooring replacements for seller listings and new buyers (so if anyone needs recommendations there, she will be more than happy to help). As a result, her passion for real estate began to emerge.
However, the housing market crashed in 2007, and the building industry continued to decline with no sign of a quick recovery. Her experience in account management allowed her to transition to a vehicle data company in Centreville Virginia where she worked with insurance carriers where she gained additional experience in contracts, negotiations and presentations. She also enjoyed working with her insurance customers in identifying problems and recommending solutions.
Another proud moment for Amanda was becoming a wife and mother. Amanda has been married to Matt Phillips for 7 years, and a mother to Beau for 4 years. Wanting to spend quality time with her family, she decided to give up her commute and invest in her real passion, real estate. Amanda enjoys working on her own home and takes much joy and pride in home ownership, hoping to help clients find the same. She and her family enjoy boating, canoeing, and relaxing in Colonial Beach, VA.
