Amanda Flesner (Atkison)
Senior Commissions Specialist
I am an Accounting and Commissions Specialist. My main responsibilities are to process internal and external commissions, maintain the Master Grids, and answer agent questions about Brokers Alliance commissions. However, I pride myself in being able to assist in several different areas and divisions as needed.
I am was born and raised right here in Arizona. My family consists of my mom, dad, two older sisters, and me. I am very lucky to say that I am also close with my extended family. All in all, of the nearly 30 total family members, only eight live beyond a 30 miles radius of me. I am very grateful for how spoiled I am when it comes to family.
I think one of my proudest accomplishments was moving out from my parents house. It felt good to make the next step towards adulthood and my independence. I know it seems silly as nearly every adult has to do it at some point but, for me, it was big.
I am a list maker and always have several going at once. I can measure the success of my day by the amount of items, or size of items, I can cross off by the time I head home.
Without question I would love to meet Walt Disney. In my book, he is one of the greatest people in history. I would love to speak to him about his dreams, hear stories of all of the great people he met, be encouraged by his words of wisdom, and learn what he thinks of his legacy.
I have yet to actually make a bucket list but some things that I really want to do in my lifetime are travel the world, have a family of my own, and make a lasting difference in the life of a stranger (or, more ideally, many strangers).
One of the theme songs of my life is “Go The Distance” from the Disney movie Hercules. I think this song started near the end of the light instrumental to the build of the final segment (power chorus) would be nice for my “walk-up song”.
Accounting & Commissions Specialist
Accounting & Commissions Specialist. I deal with the money coming in and going out.
I was born in Europe but I grew up in Northern California. My mother’s side of the family is from West Africa and my dad’s side is from Michigan. Both of my parents work in the legal field.
When I got my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Mathematics after one of my high school teachers said I couldn’t because I was a girl. I sent him pictures of my diplomas after graduation.
If I feel that I have done my work to the best of my ability and can leave the office without worrying about tomorrow.
