Amanda Eagan

Born & raised in Gordon County, I had always said that I wanted to be a nurse or a Realtor when I grew up. It turns out that I am not a fan of needles, so in 2006 I got my real estate license & have loved EVERY single minute of it!!

I take pride in being down to earth, dependable and most importantly honest. If you can't be real, then you can't be a Real-tor, right? I would rather create long lasting relationships by listening to what my clients want and help them obtain their goals rather than just hurrying to put another notch on my sales list. I will look out for you and guide you through every step of buying and/or listing your home!!

I have 2 fantastically wonderful kids, Payton (who plays junior roller derby for the Rome Rollerettes) & Cohen (who plays travel baseball with a serious love for the game). I am a member of the National & Georgia Association of Realtors, a multi-million dollar agent, have served as a chairman on the Gordon Community Service Committee, can show or sell any home in GA and CAN'T wait to be your Realtor!!

Suzanne Ross

My family moved around a lot when I was growing up. We moved to Gordon County in 1973 and loved it so much we stayed. All these years later I still love Gordon County. It is where I developed deep, lasting friendships, met my husband, raised my children, and am now watching my grandchildren grow. I became a REALTOR in 2007; the market bubble burst the same year. I struggled the first few years but hung in there and now have a successful business. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Bartow Area Board of Realtors.

The process of buying/selling a home can be a daunting process. Picking the right professional is important to insure a smooth transaction with very few surprises. I try to be available and helpful to all my clients and strive for their happiness. I will be there in every step whether you are buying or selling. I’ve worked with some pretty amazing people; I look forward to working for you!
