Amal Khodair-Vemana, licensee & managing director, started her company in 1999 after working for nearly a decade in the industry and as a temp in some of South Australia’s largest real estate companies. In 1999 Amal decided it was time for her to go out on her own and by starting her business from the corner of her living room whilst raising two young children, Amal was able to build a dedicated & loyal client base from nothing.
Unlike most agents, Amal’s expansion into sales was purely due to popular demand from her landlords who were so highly impressed by the way she single handily was able to manage their investment properties with integrity & precision. Her tenants were also so impressed with Amal’s brilliant work ethics that many of them too became her clients. Through professionalism and a high emphasis on ethical principles, Amal has established her boutique agency as one of the most reputable & reliable in South Australia.
As a boutique agency, Amkar’s fully licensed team work together on all projects. Amkar’s formula for success is a combination of its team member’s greatest strengths. Amkar combines Sega-Elias Awkars knowledge in the international markets and his marketing expertise coming from a background in communication arts bringing innovation to the way properties are marketed and presented, Amal Khodair-Vemana’s experience and confidence in delivering promised results & Anthony Awkars energetic & enthusiastic nature & passion for expansion & growth.
Amkar combines Amal Khodair-Vemana’s 25 years’ worth of experience and traditional values in the real estate industry along with the vibrant and innovative techniques her vibrant new team add to the mix. This creates the perfect balance of ethical principles, traditionally proven techniques and innovative marketing skills that are implemented into every Amkar project.
At Amkar we have a strong emphasis on innovative marketing. We understand the world has become very dependent on new technology, the internet and creative marketing. We will combine traditional marketing techniques proven to work along with innovative techniques that help your property stand out from the rest.
Amkar agents tailor their marketing packages to suit every individual property, and know the best marketing mediums to garner the best exposure. Amkar agents will not promote advertising mediums that may not be suitable for your property in order to gain agency exposure.
Our marketing programs are tailored to each individual property. Some of the common channels we use are large signboards for great exposure, styling advice and home staging to create the perfect atmosphere for prospective buyers, professional photography & videos (incl twilight, aerial & feature films), welcome packs to buyers, open houses with refreshments & snacks to create a less formal and more homely feeling, VIP private showings to clients within our database, highlight & premier listings on the major web portals and newspaper advertisements. We will also have the property advertised throughout our agency portals (website, social media, brochures) and for certain properties we will also advertise to the international market. We also send out invitation cards to all clients in the area who are listed in our database as being a possible purchaser.
Amal & her small team at Amkar have been managing my investment properties for the past year now. Previously my properties were being managed by two of SA's "leading" and more well known agencies. I was having quite a bit of trouble with both and sometimes months would go by without receiving any statements.
I was sceptical about moving my properties to a smaller agency, but when a family friend who had their properties managed by Amkar referred me to Amal & her team, I decided to try my luck.
Ever since I have been so happy with the way my properties have been managed and thanks to their reasonable fees and helpful advice it is great to finally see a decent return on my investment properties!
Amal & her team managed my penthouse apartment in the city for 8 years. Amal was so efficient in the way she looked after my property that when it came time to sell I would chose no other agent.
When the penthouse sold quickly I was not surprised at all, as Amal does her job with passion & integrity. I would refer Amal & her team to anyone who is looking for a serious agent who provides results. In fact the man that bought the property off me is now also using the team at Amkar as his property manager.
I met Amal by chance at an inspection. I was impressed with the way she was conducting the inspection and I had two properties at the time that were being very poorly managed, so I asked her if she could take over. When Amal took over I was so happy with her work ethic for four years I had her sell one of my properties so I could buy another one and manage the one I was living in so I could move.
Till this day Amal and her team still manage all my investment properties and she is definitely my agent of choice!
