~ Amanda Capodice Kinsella, MBA
I began my career as a full time real estate broker in 2006. Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with more than 150 families who have bought or sold real estate. I have worked hard to help close more than 19 million dollars in sales volume and strive every day to provide my clients with top notch service.
In an effort to improve on the many skills needed to facilitate a successful real estate transaction, I completed Illinois State University’s Master of Business Administration Program (MBA) in May 2011 with a 4.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA). The college in which this series was completed has been recognized as one of the best 300 business schools worldwide by Princeton Review 2007 thru 2011. I truly believe the information I gained through this business program will be invaluable to becoming a real estate agent that stands out among the best.
I am proud to say that I have always done what is in the best interest of my clients and will continue to do so in the future. Over the years, I have found that a successful real estate transaction is a result of good business decisions. To make a good business decision, one must be well informed. I make it a priority to arm my clients with all the information they need to make an educated decision about one of the biggest investments of their life. Satisfaction is a priority and I always strive for quality over quantity.
I am a native of Bloomington and my family has been serving the Bloomington/Normal area for over 100 years. I was an Honors Program Scholar at Illinois State University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science and Honors in Finance. Since beginning my career as an agent with Prudential Snyder Real Estate, I have had the opportunity to work with buyers and sellers in real estate transactions involving land, existing homes and new construction. Although the last few years have been tough nationally in the real estate field, I have had a great beginning and I continue to learn in order to serve my clients to the best of my ability.
I have continually taken advantage of my company’s ongoing training programs to further my knowledge about the many issues concerning real estate. Immediately upon employment, I completed a national training program, Action Pack for Success, developed by Prudential Real Estate and led by instructor Karen S. Lander. Later, I completed the Sales Master System which involves numerous weekly training sessions on different sales techniques.
In 2007, I was awarded the Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation. This designation is earned by attending a specific, intensive series of 90 hours of classroom instruction, covering a variety of subjects including contract law, professional standards, sales and marketing, finance and risk reduction. In Illinois, less than 10 percent of the 60,000-member Illinois Association of REALTORS® has achieved this designation.
I was awarded the 2007 Prudential Snyder Real Estate Rookie of the Year Award for all my hard work and dedication to my clients. In 2007, there were 24 real estate agents that qualified for this award. The total volume for these 24 agents was $19 million, of which I produced $2 million. My production in 2007 put me in the top 33% of our entire company for volume, and in the top 25% for total units.
I was also awarded May 2008 Commercial Leader of the Month. I am the youngest Prudential Snyder agent to receive the Rookie of the Year Award and/or Commercial Leader of the Month.
