I had the pleasure of working very closely with Amie Shepard recently on the sale of my home in Manhattan Beach in December 2010. Amie served as an assistant to my agent, Gerard Bisignano, with Peninsula Sotheby’s International Realty. My transaction ended up being long and complex with multiple unforeseen delays, which is not uncommon in the current economic climate. Despite these challenges, Amie never missed a beat. From the initial marketing of the home to the close of escrow, Amie was the consummate professional. She personally followed up on every detail, kept me updated on (at times) tense negotiations, and always was available to even run documents back and forth. As stressful as buying and selling a home can be, Amie buffered that tension as much as possible. Gerard and Amie make a great team. They know the South Bay market very well, are client focused and offer exceptional service. It is a privilege to give Amie Shepard my highest recommendation without reservation to future clients.
