Amy Lessinger

Amy’s commitment to being one of the area’s top real estate professionals was evident from the moment she embarked on her career in 1996. An unwavering focus on results and deep-rooted belief in continual education has led to an alphabet soup of accreditations on her way to becoming a nationally recognized REALTOR®.

In 2005, Amy and Brian Lessinger joined forces with John Fisher to launch RE/MAX Realty Affiliates (RRA) with a singular focus – giving clients everything they deserve from each residential real estate transaction. In a business where you’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with, Amy set out to recruit a team of elite agents who share her drive and passion for rising above the crowd.

Amy’s generosity in sharing best-practices mentoring and penchant for employing new processes has created a thriving business of entrepreneurial agents in Northern Nevada. The family-like atmosphere and abundance of affable energy that radiates through RRA’s office reflects a compassionate, hands-on approach that is another of Amy’s hallmarks.

The results speak for themselves – over the past decade, RRA has been the highest-producing real estate office in per-agent productivity, with unit sales volumes that nearly double the next-highest office in Northern Nevada. During this span, Amy was named Broker/Owner of the Year by RE/MAX International and elected president of the Council of Residential Specialists (CRS) Sierra Nevada Chapter, while RRA was consistently ranked as one of the nation’s Top 500 Power Brokers by RISMedia.

In 2018, RRA was named as one of the nation’s Top 50 brokerages for agent productivity among Real Trend’s Top 500 list, was ranked among the 500 most productive brokerages in the United States by both RISMedia and Swanepoel, and was ranked first in 2017 Multi-Office Volume in the Southwest Region by RE/MAX for closing more than $900 million in sales.

Her commitment to service also extends to RRA’s annual support for a variety of charities that includes the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Volunteers of America, the Junior League of Reno and the Children’s Miracle Network, which recognized RRA as having the highest total contributions in Nevada for the second consecutive year.

Outside the office, Amy recharges by pouring herself into her family and passions that include exploring the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe and engaging in equestrian sports – a pursuit her two dogs, Izzie and Sadie, appreciate from the sidelines.
