KBB REALTORS: Kris Hanahan & Amanda Burgess

When thinking about how to sum myself up one thing continues to come to mind; people are my life! From the relationships I have with my family and loved ones to the relationships I nurture with clients, who become friends, I greet every day with the simple goal to give others the best of me!

Why Real Estate? 

Kris: "That is a great question! Unlike many of those in the industry, I did not have this on my radar at all! A friend suggested that I would be a great fit for this profession, and 18 years later I cannot imagine doing anything else. It is very rewarding."

Amanda: "I have always loved real estate!  I watched my grandparents build and develop real estate in State College from an early age and then bought my first investment property in 2009.  When I realized I was browsing Trulia every evening 'just for fun' and following every real estate/home design account on Instagram, I knew it was time to get my real estate license!"

What's your favorite part of the job? 

Kris: "There are so many things that I love about what I do. Problem solving, negotiating, meeting new people every day. My deepest satisfaction, however, comes from being able to provide personal service to clients during what can an emotional and stressful transition. Someone can be buying or selling a property for a variety of reasons, and because of this the real work takes place outside of the paperwork. My goal is always to serve clients in such a way that they feel supported and empowered, that they understand what is happening at any part of the process and that they are aware of their options. For me, nothing is better than knowing I helped to make a transition a bit easier on someone."

Amanda: "I truly love it all!  But if I had to nail down my top 3, I’d say:  First and foremost, the relationship-building aspect!  I’m naturally an extrovert and love meeting new people.  Second, I love that each day is different.  Whether it’s working in the office or driving to homes, each day is something new!  And lastly, I know it’s cliché, but I truly love homes!  I love seeing new homes, remodeled homes and well lived in homes.  I enjoy learning how people live in their homes to help find them find the perfect match."

What's something most people don't know about you? 

Kris: "I am a classic nerd! I have a Computer Science degree and spent my first years out of college as a software engineer. My logical approach and my ability to analyze data complements the emphasis I put into support and care of my clients. It makes for a great balance in how I work with people."

Amanda: "I previously practiced as a Midwife at a busy urban hospital in Philadelphia and I’ve helped welcome upward of 2,000 babies into this world.  With both of my careers, I have had the honor of helping people during major life events – having a baby and finding their forever home!"
