Amanda Smith


Amanda Smith is your local ITEX representative, servicing this area. In October of 2017 it will be my 20th anniversary in the barter business.  What brought us to the desert was the purchase of a 14 room condemned hotel.  We purchased it out right, could not get a loan for renovations due to its condition. We met a person that was to help us with finances that did not work out. While drowning our sorrows at a local restaurant, we met the owners that had just joined a trade exchange and said this could be our answer. My husband a General Contractor and I joined the next day. Soon we had an abundance of trade credits. We renovated using our barter credits. Circumstances came about later for us to take over the office and here we are almost 20 years later.  In 2006 we acquired the ITEX of Temecula area. I also serve as Vice President on our Brokers Association, IBABD. ITEX has benefited me both in business and my personal life. I strive to do that for my members.

Our focus is to help you generate sales and make purchases in our marketplace. It's like having an extra, highly experienced, full time employee whose only purpose is to help you sell your goods or services to other ITEX members, and to find you goods and services on which to use your ITEX dollars! When you use ITEX dollars instead of cash, you have more cash to spend on growing your business. I have been in this business for many years and love doing what I do. Its great working with a company that has the largest community of business owners in North America creating the largest cashless marketplace.
