Amanda Davenport is a native Southerner who holds a special place in her heart for the charming and genteel town where she grew up. She believes she found those same warm characteristics when she chose Darien as home for her family.
While Amanda brings her clients a comprehensive knowledge of Darien gained from her time living here, she also knows what it's like to be a newcomer. She is dedicated to helping her clients make informed decisions and enjoy smooth transitions -- whether they're moving across the neighborhood or from across the country.
Prior to entering real estate, Amanda worked for 12 years in the designer fashion industry of New York City. Her eye for great design draws her to exceptional homes, and her passion for sales and client service makes residential real estate a perfect fit.
Amanda lives in Darien with her husband, Ric, and their three children. She enjoys cooking, tennis, and reading.

"Anyone reading this knows how stressful moving house can be. We were fortunate to have Amanda recommended to us by some friends as she made our house search as easy as possible. We were new to town and Amanda was great in giving us an abundance of local knowledge... check out her website movetodarien.com. She was always available and obliging in showing us around. As a Mom herself, she understood what we needed for our little rascals!” - Jennifer & Patrick B."Finding a new place to live is exciting, and also fraught with what often feels like the unavoidable misery of the process. Bear that burden if you like, or work with Amanda. She is the consummate professional who works tirelessly to keep you focused on the adventure and not the grind. Amanda doesn't just help you find a place, she helps you find your place. She knew the houses we would like before we got there. But most importantly, for Amanda this isn't a transaction. You can't help but feel like one of your friends or family is taking care of you throughout the journey. And that journey doesn't end when the papers are signed. Not only will you find your new home, but you'll pick up a great friend, and an invaluable partner for whatever other adventures come next." - Tanya and Jaime"Amanda is the type of sales agent everyone wishes they could find when starting a new job and relocating, all at the same time. She made it her job to find listings I would be interested in based on my needs, wants, and personality. With no real knowledge of Connecticut and what the towns offered - Amanda took over. She understands how overwhelming it can be finding the right town and home since her family recently relocated to Connecticut. Amanda's generosity of her time extended beyond showings to include ‘a day in town’ to experience what the different towns offered. I know Amanda and I will be connected forever through a business and personal relationship." - Natasha P."Coming from Manhattan, we were clueless about the area and general things to look out for when purchasing a house. But as transplants to Darien, Amanda & Caroline Hanley knew exactly where we were coming from and provided invaluable honest advice throughout the entire process. At the end we found the perfect home for the right price in a great neighborhood, which wouldn't have happened without this great team! They are not only our realtors, but our first friends in town!" - Jennifer F."Last spring, my husband & I started our search for a new home. Amanda was recommended to us by a friend. When we first met her, Amanda told us that she would take us to see as many houses as we wanted. If only she knew what that would entail! She showed us some great houses & had great design ideas for the ones that ended up not being so great! It was so nice to get to know her and work with her. She is absolutely lovely. Amanda is the most loyal, dedicated & patient person. We went through a 7 month crazy roller-coaster with the house we ended up buying. We walked away from it 3 times, but Amanda knew the house was right for us, so she kept trying to work with the seller to make it happen, and it finally did. We are so happy in our new home and owe it to her. She put in endless hours, effort and personal time to help get us the house we wanted. Throughout the process, she was so professional & even-keeled with the extremely difficult seller, when most people would have lost their cool. We highly recommend Amanda as your real estate salesperson!" - J.D.
