We have worked with Amy on three transactions – she helped us purchase our first home in Cincinnati, and then three years later, she helped us sell that home and buy our current home. Amy is very thorough and professional. As out-of-towners unfamiliar with the area, Amy made it a point to educate us on the market conditions, while also giving us an overview of different areas that we might like to live in before we bought our house. We were very happy with our first home, but when we decided that the time had come to put it on the market, Amy worked with us to get our home ready for sale – recommending cleaning, staging, pre-inspection, etc.; while also advising us on how to price our home to sell quickly and for good value. She is very responsive and direct – balancing both the personal nature of a home purchase or sale with the practical and financial aspects of such. We had such confidence in Amy’s abilities that it was no surprise to us that all three of our transactions with her went smoothly, and we have recommended her to a number of friends and acquaintances throughout the city.

It is rare to find an agent who treats the sale of a home for what it is — often a deeply personal event for the owner, bur also a transfer of a significant asset that deserves solid business disciplines. Amy has a thought-out business plan that integrates a keen understanding of market conditions, timing, risk reduction, presentation and negotiation that is simply unrivaled in the 11 homes we have sold over the last 30 years. She gets top dollar for her clients for a reason — she is select in which properties she represents, is exacting in executing her business plan, and brings unique insights into what drives the value of a home to a targeted buyer. As well, she significantly reduces the risk and anxiety around a home sale by surrounding herself with trusted partners and contractors who embrace what her brand represents. In particular, I think Amy’s skills would be of particular value to the more discriminating client who is accustomed to dealing with people who are savvy, disciplined, resourceful and highly reliable. We could not have been better served in the sale of our home. She worked us, but it was worth it — we sold the home in a soft market for a price within two percent of our high asking price.

Amy was great to work with on the sale of our home. We were encouraged to work with Amy by our mortgage lender because he said she was the best at selling houses in our area. We met with Amy before we put our house up for sale to better know the market, learn what price to sell our home and understand what we needed to do to prep our house for showings. Amy was very knowledgeable about the housing industry and came prepared with facts. You have to be willing to trust that she knows what she’s doing. The best thing you can do to sell your home is price it right. The number that you start at might be hard to stomach because you want it to be higher, but the more realistic and fair the starting price point is, the quicker you will sell it! She gave great recommendations on how to stage our home so that buyers would fall in love with it. We sold our home in four weeks and overall, it was a pretty quick process. Amy was always prompt and dependable. She was there to answer questions and she was efficient with follow up. She’s easy to talk to and personable. We would recommend Amy to anyone looking to sell their home quickly.

We knew from the beginning that if anyone could sell our our condo, it would be Amy Broghamer. She helped us with staging of our condo, and the condo sold in less than a week! On the buying side, Jenny VanKirk was incredible as we searched for our new family home. She understood what we were looking for because she knows how to listen to her clients. She was very proactive and got us into see every house we were interested in as soon as it came on the market. She was kind, encouraging, and just a pleasure to do business with. Thanks again for all of your hard work!

My husband and I were referred to this team when we decided to sell our house and buy a new one. Off the bat we were impressed with the fact that Amy was honest with us in referring us to one of her colleagues to sell our condo downtown as that was more his core competency – that showed that she was genuine and not just looking for a sale or a quick buck. We did use her team to buy our new house though and I would not recommend anyone else to work with.

Whenever people ask me if I know a good realtor, I tell them no — I know a GREAT realtor! The AmyBSells Team sold our house in 2010 for 100% of asking price in 2 days. They also moved us into our next house, smoothly and on time, with no temporary housing.
Amy Broghamer took her time with us, educating us about our market (Deer Park), giving us honest advice about pricing, and referring us to a rockin’ staging expert to get our house ready to sell. She did everything she could (and advised us on what we could do) to help us sell quickly. We were able to get the most money possible for the sale, and had excellent communication back and forth throughout the process.
I referred my elderly great aunt to the AmyBSells team when she was ready to sell in Mt. Washington (later in 2010). She had a similar positive experience, from beginning to end. She was able to sell quickly for a good price and move into her new retirement community.

Amy Broghamer and the AmyBSells Team are true professionals and outstanding to work with.
When Amy first came to meet with us she educated us on the market, the best strategy to sell our home, provided a realistic understanding of the process, what we should expect and provided a plan for success. We were so impressed by her that we fully trusted her advise we followed each of her recommendations. Wow did they pay off! We had two offers in less than 24 hours! One full price offer and one over asking. We closed on the house in thirty days without any issues. Even the other realtor commented on how impressed he was with her at the closing.
We always recommend Amy and her team to our friends, family and co-workers. Amy and her team are simply the best there is.

Not all Realtors are created equal! Amy Broghamer (Amy B) is the most knowledgeble Realtor that I’ve ever met. If you want the best–call her. Amy did an awesome job of selling our home quickly and at a fair price. I would recommend AmyB to anyone who is buying or selling a house. In fact, through her connections, we had an offer before the pictures even made it to the MLS! We sold a small cottage in the Mt. Washington area that required just the right buyer, and Amy’s guidance helped to prepare us for the process and determine the appropriate price for our market.
Previous to listing with Amy, we had listed our house before with another prominent local agency. During that experience, we received limited guidance, and the communication was poor. We looked at several Realtors before deciding upon Amy, but we chose her because she was prepared with market data and refreshingly honest and direct in her approach on selling houses. We were also impressed with the speed in which she had sold several other houses on our street, and so we knew that her selling strategy was successful.
Amy guided us each step of the way through the process. She insisted that we get a pre-home inspection, and although we were hesitant to do it, her guidance was the best advice ever. The pre-inspection helped us to anticipate buyer concerns and address them when setting the price. She made everything as convenient for us as possible, from her use of a digital document service to taking pictures around our schedule (even in the snow). The selling process was not without a few bumps, but we felt completely secure with Amy representing us–even from 1,000 miles away. While she may not have told us everything that we wanted to hear, she told us exactly what we needed to hear, and that made all the difference in quickly and successfully selling the house. Our experience with AmyB was fantastic. She understands the real estate market and what it takes to sell a house in Cincinnati.

I never hesitate to refer the AmyBSells team because I know that 100%without a doubt Amy B will go above and beyond to help her clients. We actually had a longer relationship with Amy as she helped us understand and achieve financial goals with owning our second-home, our dream home. Amy sold our house for 100% asking price and we sold it with in two days I honestly could not believe it! Working with Amy and her team was the best decision that we made!

Working with you was definitely a positive experience. It is apparent that you take your job seriously and are definitely not someone who decided to sell real estate for a part time job for extra cash or someone who got into it because she was dissatisfied with a traditional employer. Your aggressive approach to marketing, price analysis, and the information you make available to buyers exceeds that of other agents I have spoken with or worked with. Throughout the search and purchase process, you made an effort to ensure that we had as much information as possible to make a solid decision. There were no surprises.
One of the things I most appreciated about working with you was your responsiveness and willingness to use multiple channels of communication. I was able to get a hold of you quickly through email, voice mail, and text messages. Some agents who are less comfortable with technology are slower to respond. I also appreciated your ability, even enthusiasm, to conduct business at all times of day and days of the week.
The pace of real estate, especially in a popular part of town, can necessitate such flexibility and aggressive deal making. I knew we would never lose a deal on account of you moving too slowly.

What we learned and appreciate overall with Amy is that she was not only incredibly confident, smart, and sensible about her business sense, but she was an amazing resource of information, connections, and ideas for just about anything we could think of to ask her. At every step of the way Amy had a contact; she has assembled a wonderful and delightful team of people just like her who are easy to work with and enjoy working with Amy as well! It never ceased to surprise me that she had someone for that too! It was like having our own personal search engine every time we asked her a question!
–Jon and Rhiannon Eck, Landen
Her recommendations, attention to detail and better-than-ever communication had our house under contract in about 30 days. Amy made us feel like we were the ONLY house she had to concentrate on, like we were the center of her world and it showed. I can’t say enough positive things about Amy and will recommend her to everyone I know.
–Brock and Michelle Boser, Historic Covington, KY
Amy does a great job of explaining the process before it starts and helping make it as easy as possible for you. Amy is honest in telling you what you need to do to prepare your home to go on the market. She suggested several things to us that I”m sure aided in the quick sale of our home. The photo tour she posted to the MLS helped our house received an offer 22 hours after going on to the market. We were able to sell our home and put an offer on a new one all in a week”s time and have Amy to thank for it.
-Nate and Laura Palmer, Oakley
She doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, she explains what she going to do as your realtor, and what you need to do as a home owner to sell your home. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, motivation, and passion for her work really shine through. We highly recommend Amy!
–Jeff and Karri Schrand, Mt. Lookout, OH
She was always available for answers to our worrisome questions and for suggestions in marketing our home. She worked very hard for us and she did it all the month before, during and just after her wedding. If she can be that committed during a very stressful and busy time for her personally, as well as in June (the busiest real estate month) just imagine what a commitment she has when there”s nothing but real estate on her mind. Amy came highly recommend to us by someone who is very hard to please and can be very demanding.
–Tom & Peggy Lane, formerly Anderson, now in Pittsburgh
You brought a fresh approach to marketing my home, shared referrals from clients and constructive ideas & advice about staging our now empty property. With your up-to-date market analysis we were able to discuss strategies for day one, the first week and first month. Your upbeat attitude and confidence was reassuring to me, and contagious. As a woman who pays a lot of attention to the details, it was great to be working with another woman who shared the same perspective and work ethic. It was so refreshing to have an agent who emphasized the positive aspects of the selling your home instead of an agent who dwelled on the negative aspects of a slow real estate market.
Amy, I credit our success to your success. You brought us a solid offer in two weeks, and worked diligently on all of the details to calm my skittish nerves as the closing drew near.
You made it a smooth process, and managed to schedule the closing 2 weeks earlier than originally planned.
–Paul and Karen Calligandes, Pleasant Ridge
Amy understood our need and desire to sell quickly and through her experience and expertise we were able to sell our home within 3 weeks of listing with her in a very prominent buyers market. Amy is extremely easy to work with; she has a very professional and friendly disposition which makes her very approachable.
