Amanda Eirich joined AFR Furniture Rental in June 2023. After graduating from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (Go Illini!), she began her career in new home sales. She worked for several homebuilders over the next few years. She also has a wealth of experience in sales and sales management, with deep knowledge of the insurance housing, multifamily marketing, and prop tech industries. She began her career in the furniture rental industry in Chicago in 2003 and worked in that industry for the next 18 years, holding a variety of positions, including inside and outside sales representative, national accounts representative, district sales manager, area sales director, and director of training and development.
While still working in new home sales, Amanda once had a difficult time selling a floorplan for a new construction condo building in Chicago's West Loop because potential buyers couldn't picture themselves living in the empty space. She partnered with a furniture rental company, and was amazed at how quickly they were able to transform the vacant condo into a beautiful furnished model. Once potential buyers were able to see themselves living in the condos, they began selling quickly. This experience inspired Amanda to learn more about the rental furniture industry.
Amanda is eager to use her skills and experience to help AFR clients in the field. She enjoys the challenge of working with different markets and finding creative solutions to meet the needs of her clients. She is always looking for ways to improve her understanding of the markets she works in. Amanda takes the time to get to know her clients on a personal level so that she can provide them with the best possible service.
Amanda is active in several trade organizations, including the Chicagoland Apartment Association (CAA), the Chicago Association of REALTORS (CAR), the Corporate Relocation Council of Chicago (CRC), the Mainstreet Organization of REALTORS (MORe), the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), the Chicago Local Network of Women's Council of Realtors (WCR), and the Illinois Continuity of Care Association (IL-COC). She was also appointed as the education chair of CRC and the co-chair of their Midwest Relocation Conference.
Amanda is a die-hard Chicago Bears fan, and she met her husband at a Bears tailgate. Amanda is a huge reality TV fan who loves to binge watch the Real Housewives franchise and almost everything else on Bravo. When she's not working, Amanda loves spending time with her family and her dog, Payton. Her husband and two daughters are her everything, and Payton is the perfect addition to their family. He's named after Walter Payton, her favorite football player. Amanda and her family are often found at their oldest daughter's basketball or volleyball games, or at their youngest daughter's dance competitions. They are also big fans of live music and enjoy attending as many concerts as they can.
