Amanda loves to share the story of Home Team Lending’s “Realtor-centric” culture which is a different approach to lending; born from the literal and figurative marriage between a lender and a Realtor: which has been her life since 2000 when she met Manny and started a family and a dream. Communication and integrity are of paramount importance for building solid relationships and are the very tools Amanda has used to create seamless mortgage transactions for hundreds of happy borrowers. Amanda and her husband Manny live in DeLand and have 4 wonderful children. You’ll find Team Sarnes spending time either on or in the water, or traveling around in their RV.
