OUR team

Amanda Glowacki NC REALTOR® and Broker-In-Charge

Amanda is a native North Carolinian, born and raised in Winston-Salem. She graduated from UNC-Charlotte with a degree in Business Administration.

After college, she worked in the financial industry and had the opportunity to work and live in Washington, D.C. She loved the experience of living in a major metropolitan area but ultimately her heart belonged to Charlotte. Amanda relocated back to the Queen City in 2007 and currently resides in Davidson with her husband John, four-year-old daughter Taya and their dog Ollie.

Amanda has an innate ability to connect with others quickly, values being attentive to the client’s needs and offers sincere advice at all stages of the home buying or selling process. She believes that the process should be as seamless as possible using her skills to help her clients achieve their goal - owning their dream home!

Melissa Pratt Apartment Locator

I am a broker, apartment locator, founder of Blind Move Charlotte, and a 9th grade English teacher. I have a lot of experience being the new girl in town. I've moved up and down the East Coast, going from NYC to MA to VA and GA. I am happy to be able to call North Carolina my home. I've been here for 15 years, and it is by far my favorite of all of the places I’ve lived. I graduated high school and college here, attending both major universities in the area. I've now built my career and my home here. I've been able to watch my city grow from a small town, to the diverse, thriving metropolis it is now. Charlotte's beauty lives in its multiplicity: it has all the elements and trends of a modern, vibrant metropolitan city, but maintains the charm and hospitality of a small Southern town. I love this city, and it's my hope for my clients to fall in love with it too. Charlotte feels like a breath of fresh air, and it's a great place to build the life you want. That's why it's my passion to bring as many unique stories, talents and skills here, so we can continue to build the city together. I want my clients to begin their new life with excitement and joy; and finding an apartment to call home can be the perfect starting place.

I look forward to working with clients and hearing your story. Welcome to Charlotte!

Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to relay to you why I love Charlotte and how excited I would be to familiarize you with the area and the rental market!

I have been passionate about helping people my entire life.
