In six short years, Amanda Bankuti transitioned from a founder of Red Carpet Media Partners, a celebrity and charity event planning agency, to a top broker – consistently in the top three sales agents in her office for four years running.
Amanda has a remarkable ability to anticipate all of her clients’ needs and confidently navigate them through the complex process of buying or selling a home in New York City. Her intimate knowledge of Manhattan combined with her vast negotiating skills make her the perfect choice for buyers, sellers, renters, investors and developers.
Beginning with her degree in medicine and science from Manhattan College, and following that with years in the legal field and finally in the celebrity event planning space, Amanda has used her deep contacts in all three of those areas to build a large residential sales business. Having dealt with extremely demanding clientele in her previous professional existence very successfully prepared her for the demands of luxury real estate in New York City.
Amanda knows exactly how to market and sell her properties. After throwing Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti event, named by Gotham Magazine in their top 10 parties of year, throwing a launch party and open houses for her listings is well within her wheelhouse.
Philanthropy is an important aspect of Amanda’s life. She’s active in: Friends of Mount Sinai, the American Diabetes Association, Save Darfur, and is a founding member of Harlem Park to Park.
Amanda lives in Harlem with her husband and her five-year-old twins. She is an avid cook, specializing in Italian cuisine.
