“What sets Amanda apart is her earnest dedication and genuine interest in her clients well being. She continuously goes the extra mile and never once makes you feel rushed or under any type of pressure, in fact all too often it felt as though she was there for my benefit alone – such is her skill at putting you at ease and I trust her impeccably.”
