ABOUT AMANDA HART
A dancer since age nine, Amanda received my BFA in Dance from the California Institute of the Arts in 2005 and established her non-profit Hart Pulse Dance Company and annual national MixMatch Dance Festival.
In 2015 she made a shift in her full-time dance career and decided to pursue her love for the car world by joining the sales team at the nation’s #1 Audi dealership, Audi Beverly Hills. She spent just over 5 years as one of Audi Beverly Hill’s top Internet Sales Managers before once again shifting gears and joining Sovereign Lending Group as a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator, specializing in Conventional, FHA, VA, and Jumbo loans .
At the end of 2021, she stepped up to Hard Money lending with Easy Street Capital, now working exclusively with investors on their short and long-term rehab to flip or hold to rent, and new build construction goals. She's thankful to work for the best HML in the nation and truly enjoys the quick-paced, repeated successes she shares with her Investors.
