KBB REALTORS: Amanda Fedisson

Amanda Fedisson, like many REALTORS®, loves her job.

“Every day and every transaction is different,” she said. “It’s not an easy job, but it comes with immense gratification.” 

She finds joy in helping her clients achieve home ownership, and lives for the moment she can hand her buyers the keys on closing day. 

For her sellers, her goal is to help make their transition as smooth as possible by researching the location and comparables, finding the home’s USP (Unique Selling Proposition), pricing it correctly, staging, and marketing the property thoroughly. 

Amanda prides herself in her creative, outside-the-box approach to real estate.

CATA Corner: Restaurants, galleries & more in Boalsburg

Just a short drive from Penn State's campus lies the quaint village of Boalsburg, known to many as the birthplace of Memorial Day. As you stroll through the town square you’ll be transported to another time, when the pace of life was slower and neighbors always took the time to say hello. Located a few miles south of State College, the village is easily accessible by car or bus.

The B/Boalsburg bus is an efficient way to make it from campus to this historic village, with lots of options for fun and entertainment along the way.

You can catch the B/Boalsburg bus at various stops downtown and on campus: along Curtin Road, Burrowes Road, East Beaver Avenue or University Drive. This route runs weekdays only, with buses running four to five times per day. Another option – albeit with less stops in and around Boalsburg – would be the P/Tussey...

Local Housing Trends: All About Bellefonte

Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, population 6,281, is situated 10 miles from State College and Penn State University, and is sometimes called “Central Pennsylvania’s Victorian Secret.” This charming borough, also the county seat, was settled in 1795 and is named after the natural spring found there.
