Meredith is a previous small business owner who founded an executive search firm in Newport Beach, CA in 1989, Barnes & Associates Executive Search, INC. They specialized in the high tech industry placing sales and marketing executives. It was a fun and exciting time in her life. In 2003 she and her husband decided to purchase their new home in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Their only child had gone off to college and they were ready for a change. She commuted back and forth until her husband Richard could retire from Boeing.
In November 2005 they sailed from Long Beach, CA to St. Augustine, FL aboard our 50ft Gulfstar ketch. It was a trip of a lifetime. Since then they have thoroughly enjoyed the sailing grounds that the east coast of the US has to offer.
Meredith is heavily involved with the Guardian ad Litem program out of St. John’s County. They are the voice of the child in the court room after they have been removed from their family due to neglect or abuse. It is an extremely rewarding experience and she looks forward to continue work with them.
Meredith's experience of negotiating and counseling individuals in making lifetime decisions helps her provide stellar service throughout the real estate process.
Amanda has been in the industry for just under 15 years and has transitioned with the ever changing real estate market. In 2006 she helped with the start of a new real estate company, where it grew from 2 agents to 100+. Shifting with the market in 2010, she ventured into the short sale and REO world, which has helped make her negotiating skills top notch.
In 2015 she and her family moved from Orlando to Ponte Vedra Beach and fell in love with the area. They enjoy anything outdoors and really embrace the Florida lifestyle: bike rides to the beach, fishing, boating, swimming, the list goes on.
Amanda is a volunteer at her local church where she helps with the kid's group. She believes in giving back to the community and encourages her children to volunteer, too, whether through church or simply helping an elderly neighbor with yard work.
Being able to help & assist people with the purchase of their home, one they will make endless memories in, is a true blessing.
