Amanda Mendez grew up in Iowa City, Iowa, now famous for “The Wave” at all Iowa Hawkeye football games to the patients at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. In 2000, she moved to California, living in San Diego for 3 years before relocating to Los Angeles, where she has been ever since.
Growing up in Iowa, Amanda spent time with her family, fixing up and renovating the houses they lived in, or had obtained as rental property. Not afraid to get her hands dirty, Amanda gained experience picking out carpet, tile and paint colors, to stripping and sanding wood trim and hardwood floors. She has been along side her family during renovations, all the way up to building a house from scratch. With her mom’s keen sense of style and design and her dad’s expertise in craftsmanship, Amanda developed an eye for detail and a passion for a good deal with great potential.
In 2003, Amanda found her way to Los Angeles and has spent time in Hollywood, Los Feliz, West LA, Brentwood and eventually landing in the San Fernando Valley, where she enjoys the convenience of being walking distance to all the Boulevard has to offer.
In 2005, Amanda single handedly started her own remote bookkeeping practice, which she still owns and operates with her husband today. She decided to merge her love of finance and excitement for real estate by becoming an agent. On a mission to find a great deal, she set out to help others find theirs, too. Whether it’s finding a hidden gem, your first home, a new home for your expanding family, or empty nesters looking to downsize, Amanda enjoys helping others and loves to see people happy and smiling.
A Sherman Oaks resident since 2007, Amanda is an enthusiastic member of the community and enjoys chasing after her two young boys, spending quality time with family and friends, going for walks with her chihuahuas, Gizmo and Rosie Burrito, traveling, and showing clients the best Los Angeles has to offer.
