I’m proud to say I’m a hustler by nature. When I’m kicked down or told “No,” I use it as fuel to get back on top. I was a child entrepreneur and a Division I college athlete, so I’ve always been very competitive. I’m smart, I’m strategic, and I don’t give up.
My real estate business chops come from years of negotiating and marketing as the owner of a top-ranked exercise studio and the advertising director for movie theaters. My skills as a real estate problem solver have endeared me to clients and agents alike. On both sides of the Golden Gate, I know and get along with all of the players. I know the neighborhoods, the school districts and where to get the best burrito. I’ve gotten top dollar for my sellers, flipped three homes of my own and pushed countless offers through for my clients — even when our price was lower than the competitors’.
I work in San Francisco and live in Marin with my husband and two kids. If, like me, your family wants to relocate to the north or if you’re looking to find that special home in the city, I can help you cross that bridge. I’ll take you from the life that you have to the life that you want.
HELENA ZALUDOVA | PARTNER
I have to excel. It’s in my DNA. I earned double-masters degrees in business and music before becoming a real estate agent.
As a concert violist growing up in Prague, I developed an exceptional level of discipline that has carried through to my work. I’m exacting, persistent and passionate about being the best agent I can be for my clients.
I have an ear for opportunity and I love what I do. So when I’m not strategizing about how to get you the best price for your home or finding you the property of your dreams, I’m drilling through the latest market data and probing my ever-expanding network of contacts.
I’ve been privileged to live in San Francisco for over 20 years and I navigate the city like a native-born cabbie. I know what’s happening in each local market – what properties are selling for, who’s buying them, and why they are commanding the prices they command. My long-term relationships within the industry are strong and my sources are many. Thanks to my knowledge, experience and contacts, I consistently get top dollar for my sellers, and top consideration for my buyers.
In 2018 alone, I closed over $100 million in sales and became one of the highest-ranking San Francisco realtors. I’m proud of that, but even prouder that I saved each of my clients time, money and stress. Most of the properties I listed sold for over asking. Every buyer I represented received my full attention and saw only the properties that fit their criteria. 62% of my buyers’ offers were accepted the first time our team made a bid on their behalf.

SONIA ROLL | VP OF MARKETING
“Amanda laid out a plan that was easy to follow when we sold our home. She recommended simple, smart upgrades that definitely yielded a better return when we sold. We recommend her to all of our friends.”
From start to finish, she was attentive and on top of everything. She really took the time to understand what we were looking for and once we found a house we loved she was amazing at navigating the bidding process. With Amanda’s help we were able to get our dream house only after a month of looking!
Amanda Mulholland is a world class real estate professional. I’ve never sold a home before, but that didn’t stop me from having very specific conditions: a) I wanted to an off market sale, so random people wouldn’t be coming in and out of my house b) I needed to stay in home for a two and a half months after I sold it and for the buyer to be ok with that – turns out Amanda not only got this stipulation, she got it for me rent free (!) c) and of course, like anyone, I wanted the best price possible Amanda delivered everything I asked for – from agreement to listing, to sale, in a timeline of only 35 days. See? World. Class. I’d be remiss in not mentioning her operations partner Jennifer Gottlieb who made the many logistical points of selling a home very clear, orderly, and seamless. I want to express sincere thanks and appreciation to Amanda and Jennifer for helping me start a new chapter in my life. What great partners.
“I had no idea how much paperwork was involved in selling a house! I`m so happy I had Amanda to explain everything and walk us through the details.”
Amanda was incredible to work with and managed a seamless process. From start to finish, she was well organized, savvy, responsive and everything else you could ask for in a selling agent. Thank you Amanda!”
She was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and rigorous about our sale process. Her knowledge of the San Francisco market blew us away and she thought very strategically about staging, pricing, and negotiating to get us the best deal possible. We unfortunately did not know Amanda when we bought our place and the experience we had between her selling and our other broker when buying was night and day. Her whole team was very supportive and responsive and we would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in SF. Thank you Amanda!
We first ran into Amanda at an open house about 1 year before we were seriously ready to buy, but knew we would be in the market soon. We connected with her immediately as she is friendly, knowledgeable, and confident in her knowledge of the SF market. Within that year time, she kept in touch with us, checking in and sending us properties that were in our price range. When we finally jumped in the market, she was there for us with properties to look at and always very available when we needed her, either in person, phone or over email. It took us a little bit of time, but she helped us find our perfect home and was an asset during the negotiation and contract phase. Amanda brings a lot to the table in terms of market and general real estate knowledge. She gives it to you straight and is looking out for your best interests. She has a lot of connections in the city and will be able to guide you to the right people if you need recommendations for all aspects of the real estate equation. Amanda makes a complicated and sometimes overwhelming experience easy and seamless.
Amanda is amazing. She is smart, professional, easy to work with and has a really positive attitude and vibe. She sold our home and helped us buy a new one, all within 6 weeks of initially contacting her. When buying our new home, the seller’s realtor was at times challenging to work with. Amanda dealt with this professionally and very creatively at times — due to her quick thinking our house purchase went through as planned. I do not think this would have happened if Amanda wasn’t our realtor. I will miss talking to her all the time once all this house buying and selling is over.
…when she represented us on our sale. We had already relocated overseas and the time difference was never a concern. She presented us with comps in a moment’s notice. Our home sold extremely fast and Amanda presented us with a very attractive offer. Amanda was efficient and effective, fantastic experience throughout! 5*****’s baby!
If you take the all the things that you love about your best friend and merge them with all the qualities you want in the ideal person representing you … you get Amanda Mulholland. Amanda and I met through a Paragon referral and I was blown away by her from the first moment. She was always a step ahead and navigated every situation with incredible grace. And while I loved every minute with Amanda, it was after my deal closed that my respect and admiration went through the roof. There was so much Amanda did behind the scenes, that I was left speechless. From getting the seller to cover things to hourly phone calls to my mortgage lender as they made countless errors. I cannot recommend Amanda highly enough.
“As our buyer`s agent, Amanda had vision and was able to look at a room and give us various ideas on how it could best suit our needs or how we could transform it into a completely different space.”
Amanda was an incredible resource and a pleasure to work with throughout the home buying process. Amanda graciously accommodated a number of our enthusiastic family members while touring houses, listened attentively to our needs and desires, and never pushed anything that didn’t feel right. Throughout our search, Amanda sought out options off-market and thought creatively about ways to fit our needs and budget. We felt confident that she truly had our best interest at heart and that she understood, as well as shared our vision. Amanda traversed a very complicated purchasing process, demonstrating her ability to be caring and build important relationships, while also acting aggressively when need be. She responded promptly to loads of anxious emails and stayed up late with us waiting to hear back about offers with a ready game plan. Even after our purchase was complete, Amanda has been a continued support in navigating broken washing machines, paperwork, and the like. We continue to feel so taken care of by Amanda and would highly recommend her services.
“When Amanda initially suggested I take a look at the house I bought I thought she was crazy. But she was right and it was the smartest business decision I`ve ever made.”
I want to say thank you for all your help with our purchase at the Rowan. From helping us narrow our search parameters to getting the seller to give us the credit for appliances to helping us deal with last minute issues in closing escrow, we’ve always felt 100% supported in the process. We really appreciated your patience in answering all our questions and the guidance you gave us really gave us confidence that we were making the best decision. Choosing the right agent to work with often feels like the most important step in the process and we’re definitely really lucky and glad to have been able to work with someone who genuinely wanted to help us find the perfect home (and had the knowledge to do so!) Thank you again for everything!
Working with Amanda was easy. She quickly educated us on the process of home buying in SF. She was easy to talk to and listened to our wants/needs. She gave us the facts and let us do the decision making. I felt armed with information and support having Amanda on our team. She encouraged us to stay the course and ultimately found us an amazing opportunity. We are so grateful for Amanda’s expertise and guidance. We love our home so much and would not be in this position without her.
“We were lucky to navigate the sale of our first home with Amanda. She was dependable, trustworthy and dedicated to serving our needs throughout the process. From staging our home for showings, to inspections, to negotiations and contracts, Amanda was there for us every step of the way.”
We enjoyed meeting Amanda at an open house and were happy to have decided to work with her when we purchased a different property. She was responsive, well-prepared and very knowledgeable about the local market.
