Amanda Le, CEO
It is my job to understand your needs and respond to them promptly, professionally, and with integrity. It is my pledge to provide you with sound real estate advice and help you understand the wisdom of the decisions you make.
Our relationship is built on trust. Value and service will be provided before, during, and after the transaction so that your changing needs are always addressed and satisfied.
It is not only my business philosophy but also a commitment to provide you with exemplary personalized service beyond your expectations. My practice involves listening, hearing and truly understanding your needs; a quality of business conduct that often seems to have been forgotten in today’s fast-paced and highly automated society.
Amanda Le, 30 years old, is a first-generation Vietnamese American. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2008. Right after college, she worked for a non-profit helping people with disabilities gain employment in the community for 6 years. Believe it or not, this position allowed her to learn the art of sales by cold calling and door knocking employers to learn about their hiring needs.
Amanda started in real estate in March of 2015. She began door-knocking, generating leads and holding open houses before she was even licensed. She joined a team with Keller Williams which allowed her to learn various systems and tools to fast track her real estate career.
Just in the short few months in 2017, Amanda started the Picture Perfect Home Team and now has 5 people on her team including an Executive Assistant, Buyer Specialist, Inside Sales Agent, and Virtual Assistant. She also opened a mega agent office in Northeast Minneapolis. Picture Perfect Home Team has an extraordinary goal to help 150 families buy and sell homes in 2017. Through her perseverance, determination, and extensive training at Keller Williams, Amanda has been able to knock her first year in real estate out of the park!
“Real Estate has changed my life. I have found my true calling! There’s a training called BOLD that has completely changed my mindset and allowed me to identify my big WHY. It has been so rewarding to assist under served populations including minorities and immigrants to achieve their goals of buying a home.”
Amanda worked as a single agent in 2016. In her first full year in real estate, she sold 77 units totaling over $15.9 million in sales. Her achievements include:
- Awarded 100 Most Influential Real Estate Agents
- #8 in her office of 234 agents,
- Rookie of the Year in her office and Rookie of the Region (6 states: ND, SD, MT, WI, MN and WY).
