Amanda Churchwell
Founder/CEO

Amanda Churchwell founded Hello Leverage in 2012 to assist Realtors with transaction coordination; adding a listing coordination division in 2015 and marketing services in 2017. Amanda created the company out of the desire to work from home to improve the quality of life for her family, and she quickly realized that she could share this same opportunity with other talented professionals – and this is what gets her up every day! This drive is what earned her company the Entreleadership Momentum Award in 2019 from Dave Ramsey. Amanda’s personal mission is to improve the quality of life for everyone her business touches and to provide opportunities for growth and personal development for as many people as possible. With many years of experience as a Realtor herself, she knows the intricate details involved in a Real Estate transaction. Her extensive background in customer service and sales drive her passion for connecting with other professionals and building a strong rapport quickly. Her real estate industry experience includes not only selling real estate, but also broker compliance, training new agents and assisting with brokerage office management. Actively involved in her community, Amanda also served on the Board of Directors for NARESP, National Association of Real Estate Support Professionals, and has led their national conference for the last three years. She is the Athletic Volunteer Coordinator for her children’s school, serves on other volunteer committees and she leads personal development retreats for other business owners. At home, you will find Amanda along with her two daughters, son, amazing husband and their pup Lily Bear having a dance party in their living room or snuggled up on the couch watching a movie.
