I was born and raised in Santa Monica, California. After attending the University of Colorado, Boulder, I soon discovered the beauty and great potential of Denver and the surrounding area. While in Denver, I found myself tackling the Marketing world through Public Relations and Event Coordination. The experience gave me invaluable expertise in the Marketing and Communications business and launched my career into Sales.
For 2007-2009, I relocated back to Los Angeles and immersed myself into the Fashion and Entertainment Industry, where I worked as a production assistant and freelance Wardrobe Consultant with DreamWorks Pictures, Backyard Productions, Warner Bros. Entertainment, and countless arbiters of taste and style in the LA area. During this time I also coordinated with a number of small indie + organic designers where I worked as a Sales Consultant, Business Developer, and Buyer. These experiences gave me invaluable connections and expertise in Networking and Sales.
I found myself in a perfect position to take advantage of my past skills, as these combined experiences have taught me the power—and the delight—of helping people create a lifestyle that expresses their personality. In order to help them accomplish this, I spend the extra time to truly understand the client's needs and assure no time wasted.
My market-knowledge and negotiating skills are what enables me to get you the optimal price for any property you plan to sell or buy, and I provide the professionalism and integrity needed to ensure that you feel secure in what can be one of the biggest decisions of your life.
"We sold a home with Amanda, and I have to say this was the best experience I have ever had with an agent ever. Not only does Porchlight provide excellent services, but Amanda made this the most seamless transaction we have ever done. We will be referring her to friends, family, and anyone who mentions they are looking to buy or sell in the Denver area!"
"Amanda was extremely responsive and talented in helping me sell a home for a man for whom I was the Power of Attorney. Even though I live 450 miles from Denver, Amanda made the process seem simple. She staged the property and had it looking better than it had in years. The offers came immediately and the property sold very quickly. She really knows her business and I would certainly use her services again."
We cannot express enough gratitude for your knowledge, patience, respect, compassion and hard work in helping us find our first home. As first time home buyers, we had little knowledge of the home buying process and all it entailed. Thank you for helping us navigate through this particularly competitive market and educating us along the way. Thank you for taking charge when necessary, yet letting each decision be our own.
Thanks to your attentiveness, you found us the right home only moments after it became available. You listened to what we wanted and knew us so well, that yes, I was happy to make an offer on a house I was unable to see due to my work schedule! Thank you for your compassion and sharing in our joy!
With our sincerest thanks,"
Adam and Denise Marrapode
"Amanda could not have been more helpful in the purchasing of our house. As first time homebuyers, we had a million questions. Amanda was there every step of the way to help us and put us at ease. Amanda is a consummate professional and her knowledge of the Denver market and the home buying process was extremely valuable. I would definitely recommend Amanda to anyone buying or selling a home in Denver. Thanks to her, we are very happy in our new home! "

"Just closed on our home in Stapleton and this would have not happened without Amanda Sheppard and her team at Porchlight. This was not an easy transaction as my family and I were relocating to Denver from the East Coast. Amanda had to really be our eyes and ears and she did an unbelievable job of educating us on the area. She went above and beyond in her due diligence of presenting homes for us to review and she made this transaction go as smooth as possible. I work in the real estate/mortgage industry and I know how the process can have many "speedbumps" - Amanda was on top of every question we had and she resolved every issue we had with dealing with the seller's and their representatives. We are so happy with our new home and we are thankful that we retained Amanda and Porchlight to help us realize this dream house. I would recommend Amanda and Porchlight to anyone looking to buy or sell a home - if my relocation transaction went this smoothly I can only imagine how stress free and easy she would make a local sale go. Thanks again Amanda - we are soooo happy and are so grateful for all of your help in making this a great process."
"Amanda Sheppard was absolutely amazing. Extremely knowledgeable of the the Denver real estate market. She gave us great and honest advice all the time. She took care of everything and made sure it was done to perfection. Whatever happens she will say " I will take care of it " and she does promptly. We really felt being taken care of.
After we bought our condo, Amanda helped us get settled and provided us with all the information we needed. Amanda is our newest family friend!"

Our Certified Market Expert designation is the only one of its kind. Agents choose from three area-specific certifications—Central Denver, South Suburbs or North Suburbs—and become experts in that area.
Agents who earn this elite designation have not only completed our Market Ed courses—learning the ins and outs of their specialty area's cities and neighborhoods—but they've previewed dozens of homes in each area, giving them an insider's perspective on the nooks and crannies of the metro Denver area. They know what kind of architecture each area offers, and also know the special restaurants, shops, and attractions that make each neighborhood unique.
When you choose an agent with one or more CME designations, you know you're getting a trusted advisor who will guide you in making the smartest real estate investment possible while also finding the community that's the right fit for you.
