Andrea Gordon is a fantastic realtor who helped our dream of owning a lovely home in a lovely community come true. More importantly she is a great human who is kind, loving, wise and generous with her time. She is also personable and shares her passions for all animals in need and the ways she gives back to several causes (while respecting the passions of others). She has a phenomenal team that worked well together. Andrea continually provided input and when problems came up she stepped in calmly to help problem solve and hold hands. In spite of Andrea's amazing success she is able to maintain a level of humility that is inspirational. She also continues to stay in touch celebrating holidays well after the close of the deal making us feel less like clients and more like part of her cherished community.
Andrea is extremely knowledgeable about the Oakland area and provided excellent advice to help us secure an unusual property. She was clear and timely explaining the process and ran interference on our behalf as we negotiated with the seller and the lender. She is excellent and I recommend her highly.-Miriam

Ms. Andrea Gordon was OUTSTANDING! She and her team shepharded a transaction representing me as the seller and my renter as buyer. Both were out-of-state so all communications and documents were handled at long distance across different time zones. She was quite professional in all aspects, thoroughly understood the intricacies of the HOA, city zoning regulations, taxes, etc. She communicates well, was reachable to answer questions, and was firm but compassionate where indicated. A delight to work with and 100% trustworthy. Andrea delivered as promised. I would not hesitate to choose her expertise in future transactions.

"Andrea took over our listing from a previous agent and had our house sold within a week! Her Marketing team and staff are amazing, her resources and network—second to none. She knows the market. I will only use Andrea for all my real estate needs in the future."
"Simply put, Andrea made all the difference in our successful search for a home in the Bay Area.
My wife and I mentally and emotionally prepared ourselves for a grueling, long-term search—but honestly, Andrea made it actually feel easy. She's a straight shooter, but also incredibly empathetic and warm. She also knows the market in the Bay Area better than anyone we've talked to before.
Having her in your corner as a buyer is a huge advantage. We highly recommend Andrea!"
-J. Stafford | Buyer
"Andrea Gordon recently helped us buy our first home. She is a great real estate agent - incredibly responsive, knowledgable, friendly—and encouraging. In the midst of a crazy market, she found us a fantastic property. Working with Andrea demonstrated to us how valuable experience in this field can be!"
-Mike | Berkeley CA
"Andrea Gordon delivers.
Having been involved in numerous real estate transactions over the years, we have come to believe that the single most important attribute in a real estate agent is one who produces results.
For a seller, that means finding someone who will own the sales process, who has a proven, systematic approach to driving traffic that will result in offers, offers that are ‘clean’ and that will meet or exceed your price expectations.
Andrea Gordon recently represented us in the sale of our house in the Berkeley, CA hills. The property had previously been listed by a different agent, without generating any offers. After taking it off the market for 6 months, we turned the listing over to Andrea Gordon and her team.
Andrea presented us with a clear proposal how we would most effectively sell our house. Her plan included making some investments to showcase the property in an optimal manner, with a focus on maximizing our return on said investment.
All of the logistics were handled by Andrea and her team, and every one of the services she used to refine our already beautiful home performed outstanding work. While the house was being prepped, Andrea started a multi-faceted marketing drive, effectively presenting our property to a wide range of targeted customers before it was even listed on the MLS.
This was fundamentally different from what we had experienced with other realtors, who’s main objective appeared to be more of a “numbers game”: drive as much traffic as possible and hope that one of the prospects fit the buyer profile for our specific property.
Our results speak for themselves: we had a dozen showings during the 1st weekend that the house was listed (keeping in mind that this is during Covid-19), had true interest from several potential buyers, and received an offer above asking and no contingencies a few days thereafter. Less than 4 weeks later, we closed escrow without encountering any issues or delays.
Having a real estate representative who is experienced, knowledgeable, ethical, and personable is important, but it means little if she or he cannot sell your home (or help you purchase one). Andrea has all of the aforementioned attributes, but on top of all that, she delivers results.
We would obviously use Andrea and her team again and can whole-heartedly recommend her to be your representative for any real estate transaction. "
-Seller | 1450 Westview Dr. Berkeley CA
"Andrea is a top seller in the Berkeley/Oakland area. When you work with her, it immediately becomes clear why: she is smart, highly experienced and incredibly hard-working. She knows exactly how to prepare a house and price it for this market, and she and her team relieved me of so many worrying details. For example, she was able to quickly get me multiple bids for a tricky outdoor stairway project that needed completing before we could list. My house was not an easy house to sell and I knew if anyone could do it, it would be Andrea.
She urged me to come to market early in the new year, supported me to get there, and we were in escrow within a week of listing, with a ton of interest. I also did better in the sale financially than I had imagined possible. Because of her deep experience, there isn’t much Andrea hasn’t seen before in real estate, and she was able to help me retain perspective at several difficult points in my process with calm and well-reasoned advice.
She is also naturally approachable and has a wicked sense of humor so she is just plain fun to work with. She is the best selling agent you could choose in this area."
"Andrea and her associate, John, were incredibly helpful and knew how to find exactly what we were looking for in a condo.
As first time home buyers, Andrea prepared us thoroughly, and guided us through the entire process. They were also incredibly helpful in recommending contractors to perform some early work before we moved in!
Highly recommended, and will work with her again when it comes time for our next new home!"
-Buyer | Snorelax, Oakland, CA
"Andrea helped us sell our house in record time - during Covid. Her recommendations and step-by-step plan resulted in a terrific offer in just 2 days!
Andrea is organized and responsive to her clients needs, and maintains great connections with contractors, stagers, and most importantly, other agents.
We were very pleased with her results."
-Seller | Cragmont Ave, Berkeley, CA 94708
"Andrea is an incredible person – and realtor. In these uncertain times, she worked tirelessly to help us purchase our first house.
Thanks to her excellent advice, we ended up winning the bid on our dream house, against six other offers!
Andrea and her associate John were incredibly helpful throughout the home buying process – especially for first-time buyers. Incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, and brimming with great advice.
I honestly don't think we would have landed this house without them.
We can't recommend Andrea and her team highly enough!"
-Buyer | Stockton Ave., El Cerrito, CA
"Andrea was amazing, knowledgeable, straightforward, and got the job done. She promised to get us into the Oakland Hills and within three weeks she got the job done.
She helped and guided us through our first home purchase – even after the transaction was completed. I can’t say enough good things about Andrea and would recommend her highly."
"Andrea Gordon is truly the best and one of a kind. She puts her clients first, and her knowledge on the real estate market surpasses any realtor I have met. If I could give more than 5 stars, I most certainly would! Andrea will be my family's realtor for life."
"We worked with Andrea to buy our home, and sell it a couple years later. Andrea's not only an excellent agent, with incredible experience and a strong reputation, she's also a great person who we enjoyed working with. She's an honest straight shooter, who will go to bat for you. We would without question work with Andrea Gordon again."
“After interviewing several realtors, we chose Andrea Gordon. And, she was the absolutely right choice. Andrea prepped and readied our home for sale in just two weeks, and got it listed the weekend before shelter-in-place mandates went into effect.
Undaunted, Andrea worked creatively to market our home, and leveraged technology for a win/win sale – for us and the buyers.
In this time of uncertainty, Andrea’s expertise was indispensable in gauging risk and taking action."
“Andrea Gordon was recommended by the relative of a close friend who was very enthusiastic about her services. Andrea had helped him sell his home, buy a new one, and assisted his daughter in purchasing a house as well.
Not knowing much about the California real estate market, we were not disappointed. Andrea knows the Berkeley area, and the real estate business, very well.
She answered all our questions and gave us confidence with her extensive capabilities and knowledge of the East Bay real estate market. After three months of searching, we finally found the right property with her help. Then, Andrea introduced us to several select mortgage brokers and guided us throughout the entire buying process.
Thank you, Andrea, for your good advice – and support.”
“Andrea took on our failed listing and put together a fantastic marketing plan that brought in a flood of buyers. We found her during the first listing where she expressed how much she loved our house. At that point we knew we had the wrong agent and listed with her in the fall.”
Andrea staged our home and advertised above and beyond our previous agents’ efforts, and we successfully closed escrow at the end of March despite the COVID challenges.
Andrea is motivated and energetic, and, she has tremendous negotiating skills. We highly recommend her and her staff."
“We hired Andrea Gordon to help us purchase our Berkeley condo – and she was just amazing!
She guided us through the workings of Berkeley and guided us to the best neighborhoods for our family of four. Thanks to Andrea, I grew to understand the Berkeley Hills was not a convenient location and she found us a home that fit our lifestyle.
She was always there to reassure me when the pressure of offers and negotiations mounted with her calm demeanor, and her exceptional knowledge helps you see beyond the overwhelming bidding process. Lastly, she’ll give you her honest opinion about any property.
I would highly recommend Andrea.”
“Wow! Andrea Gordon is the best! She is a wonderful, knowledgeable industry leader. And now, she is a friend.
Andrea sold our Oakland Hills house during the pandemic with one open house. She negotiated us through a deal with a buyer stuck halfway around the world on lockdown – and she got us the top of the market price (as other home prices around us fell).
She even managed to negotiate a backup buyer – twice – to keep our buyer motivated. She is truly AMAZING! I absolutely recommend her to anyone interested in selling their house in the Oakland/Berkeley area."
"I can't conceive of finding a better agent for anyone trying to buy or sell in the East Bay than Andrea Gordon.
I've bought 4 homes in the Bay Area and was lucky enough to find Andrea for the purchase of my most recent one. Over the course of our four month search, Andrea consistently found us properties that matched our criteria before they went on the market, properties that were undervalued (incredibly rare in such a hot market), and correctly predicted the final sale price with multiple offers on a regular basis.
I've never worked with a realtor that has her depth of contacts - it was rare for us to go view property where the seller's agent hadn't worked with her or didn't know of her. She was able to 'talk turkey' with agents and ascertain minimum acceptable offer would be and really made me feel like I had added leverage when it came time to make a bid. When our mortgage application hit a snag, she even had contacts within our lending institution that were able to kick start the process and get us our loan closed quickly.
We had four people involved in the buying decision, which should send a shiver down the spine of anyone, but once she'd gotten to know all of us, she quickly narrowed down our search area and never wasted our time on properties that wouldn't fit our needs.
She was able to navigate and reconcile differing opinions, offered a shoulder to cry on when needed, helped us figure out what we wanted without being pushy, and when we finally found the home of our dreams, closed on it like a killer.
I really don't think we could have gotten our dream home without her and the experience was a lot less stressful knowing we had her in our corner.
I have learned to trust her instincts and knowledge implicitly. The next time I am in the market, there will only be one phone call I make."
“Extremely knowledgeable, always available, and knows the process. She came highly recommended, and still exceeded our expectations. I think it is fair to say we were able to find, and close on a property much quicker than anticipated due to her team's expertise.”
“I've worked with Andrea in both buying and selling a house. She got us a house with the smallest budget in the Bay Area – while other realtors would have turned us away.
Three years later when we had to move, she answered the phone as though we'd talked just yesterday. Over the next six months I was wishy washy about whether to actually sell, but, she stuck with us. When we finally listed, our house sold it in the first weekend, over asking price, and $100k over what we'd paid, just three years ago.
Before listing the house, Andrea advised us on how to prepare our house for sale, then covered all the prep work, including photography and yard work. She made our house shine. Additionally, Andrea is a warm and genuine personality, who makes the relationship feel like a friendship, not just a business partnership.”
“Andrea and her team provided superb, end-to-end service in a challenging estate sale situation. In addition to her deep knowledge of the market, she provided resources across a myriad of issues, quickly and responsively. We recommend Andrea and her team unreservedly!”
“Andrea brings a wealth of experience and professional relationships to bear on her work as a realtor. She was very patient in helping us find the best neighborhood and home that met all of our requirements. Her responsiveness and cheerful demeanor makes it a pleasure to work with her.”
“Andrea did an initial drive by of a property my family wanted to sell, then compiled an informational folder from all the data before sharing a frank, eye-opening assessment, along with the pluses and minuses of the property.
In poor condition with many existing problems inside and out, this home had a long-term tenant who was uncooperative. Andrea knew how to approach and resolve every issue that developed during the sales process. With each question or concern, through text or email, Andrea was prompt in her replies taking immediate action and follow through.
Andrea represents many properties in the East Bay Area. She was born and raised in Berkeley and still resides locally. Andrea also knows the community through her work in theater arts. Applying many years of real estate experience with her positive attitude and persistence, Andrea succeeds for her clients.
As for her expertise, not a single problem arose during the process of working through inconsistencies and delays initiated by the first buyer's offer and his lack of follow through.
Andrea negotiated with the other two potential buyers and ensured we received the best price, and worked with the most reliable buyer. Throughout the negotiations, she handled everything while keeping us informed of the details and considerations. Andrea updated me in real time, as needed, through texting and emails. Also, for convenience, and to minimize travel time to read and sign paperwork, Andrea’s excellent team used Docusign to streamline the process.
I consider working with Andrea the best possible scenario from our first interview (one of four agents interviewed) through the closing of escrow.”
“Our realtor, Andrea Gordon, did an amazing job selling our parents’ house in Berkeley. My sisters and I are so glad she was our realtor.
Andrea did an excellent job marketing our property, from preparing the house and property for sale, to having the house staged and a beautiful brochure created. The several open houses she hosted were extremely well-attended.
She has excellent communication skills. When I had questions, she responded right away. When I needed help with something, she was there to provide guidance with her expertise.
In addition, Andrea is very resourceful and has a wonderful team working with her to support one throughout the entire selling process. Her team did an excellent job coordinating all the work to prepare the house for sale. Whatever we needed help with, whether it was to get items out of the house or to replace broken glass in a window, her staff was there to help us, while taking care of all the documents that needed to be reviewed and signed.
I have the highest regard for Andrea and the work she does. She has a lot of energy, is enthusiastic and is always positive. She is a lovely, honest person who was fantastic to work with. I highly recommend Andrea to be your realtor.”
“I worked with Andrea and her team to sell a house in the Claremont Hills region. We had a quick time table and Andrea met every deadline, and provided excellent references for gardening services, contractors, cleaners, etc. Her preparation concerning the property were first rate. The presentation and marketing information, including photos and brochures – were outstanding.
The website she organized for the property was simply stupendous. It looked fabulous and was easily accessed by web searches, a crucial marketing edge in today's world. We received multiple offers within 10 days and Andrea provided excellent advice as to how to review the strength of each offer and contingencies.
Andrea adeptly handled negotiations and we accepted an offer well above asking with another offer in backup. The entire matter closed quickly and without a problem. Andrea provided personal and detailed attention to every aspect of the sale.
She is charming, very knowledgeable about real estate in general and the specific regional areas, easy to work with-low key, happy, and friendly. She listens to her clients but will provide an honest assessment of the real estate deal.
I cannot say enough good things about Andrea. Quite simply the best recommendation I can give is to say I will work with her again without a second thought.”
“Andrea helped us purchase an old Victorian in Alameda. Initially, we had contacted her to show us a fixer-upper in Alameda and, wow, was it a fixer! Andrea warned us that the house was in disrepair but still offered to show it to us because we had our hearts set on seeing it.
When we conceded it was too much for us, she was at the ready with three other listings, all in our price range, in areas we were interested in. Once we decided, she was on top of it! She helped us put together a competitive offer and stayed on top of the negotiation to make sure our offer was the best.
Once we won the bid, Andrea worked quickly to set up an inspection and get the necessary parties involved. She has an extensive network of knowledgeable people that makes the buying process easier.
If you're new to buying, make sure you understand the process before you jump in. Andrea is an experienced, busy agent that will close the sale but she moves quickly and you've got to be prepared! She communicates directly with you and responds quickly to emails and calls.”
“Andrea Gordon is an excellent agent. She came highly recommended by a colleague, and now I know why. We are third-time home buyers, but this was the first time we’d purchased a property in California. Andrea helped us understand the differences between buying in California versus Washington D.C., where our first two houses were.
She walked us through all of the steps and made sure we asked all the right questions. She also knows everybody, so if we ever wanted more information, she would simply call people up and get us the info we needed. When we were at open houses we would get asked ‘Who are you working with?’ As soon as we said ‘Andrea Gordon,’ everyone knew exactly who she was!
That was a great feeling.
Andrea knows all of the Oakland/Berkeley neighborhoods and their markets. She has a nose that can sniff out water and mold and an eye for a good deal or opportunity. She is super responsive and has a terrific team assisting her.
If you want someone who is going to protect you and your interests, Andrea Gordon is who you want to work with! I highly recommend Andrea!"
“I don't know where to begin in raving about my family's experience in the selling of our mother's house. Andrea and her team were amazing!
Prior to selecting Andrea, we interviewed several other agents. Not only did she conduct herself with a high level of professionalism, but her marketing philosophy and approach to selling property was beyond reproach.
And while the above traits are admirable, what sealed the deal was the sensitivity and sincerity that naturally resonated from her in her mission to satisfy our needs. Andrea and her staff became family to us in this endeavor.
And so while all the above is wonderful, the proof is in the pudding. Andrea delivered results far beyond our expectations both in service – and the house selling price. They presented us with a game plan and timelines that were executed to the letter.
We are forever grateful to Andrea Gordon, and would recommend her and her amazing staff to anyone – in a heartbeat. I know first hand why Andrea is an icon in the real estate industry.”
“Andrea was the listing agent for a home I purchased in 2006. The process of buying the house went smoothly and I believe both the seller and I were happy with the results!
Four years later, I needed to make a short sale on the home located in a wonderful neighborhood, but in need of a major overhaul. Definitely the worst house on the block!
Despite the circumstances, Andrea invested her time and energy in presenting the home as if it were a million dollar mansion, complete with beautiful marketing materials, open houses, and personally showing the home weekend after weekend.
Our biggest challenge was negotiating the short sale deal with the bank, and Andrea submitted several offers and managed the entire short sale process despite the odds.
Andrea was patient, professional and most importantly, passionate about getting the job done and selling that house! After an entire year of going back and forth with the bank, Andrea was able to close the deal.
I would recommend Andrea, hands down, no questions asked, she is a miracle worker!"
“Andrea's Knowledge and experience of the east bay is very strong. What impressed me was the package she handed to me on our first visit: the comps, market value, and appraised estimate of my house where on heavy magazine stock and in a book form!
And I had not even hired her yet. So if this was how she handled herself professionally without the listing...I knew I would get a high quality representation with her. It was not easy choosing which renovations to do but she walked me through the process without any pressure. Her team was always available with quick replies or responses to my questions.
When it came time to list, she already had agents who were interested, and received a bid before it even went on the market. I suggested a counter and she suggested a number even higher than I had in mind. Because of her knowledge and experience in the housing market she knew what to counter at – final sale was well over the original asking price.
Extremely satisfied with the services she provided. Highly recommend.”
“Andrea was instrumental in the sale of our former home and the purchase of our current home. We met her by chance at an open house and it changed our lives. She is extremely knowledgeable about the East Bay and is such a warm and caring person that you know you are in good hands.
Andrea suggested what we should do to help house sell, while her team came together and got things done quickly. Without her connections, we never would have been able to purchase our current home.
She listens to you and your concerns. She is very responsive and a true advocate for you. She will give you her honest recommendations and is very patient during a time when your patience can be pushed to the limit. We can't recommend her highly enough!
I was fortunate to find Andrea Gordon to help me sell my home. Andrea is very smart and extremely knowledgeable about everything regarding property sale. Not only that, she has fantastic positive energy and is awesome to work with.
All of Andrea's team were amazing to work with, providing swift and invaluable support in everything from general planning to aesthetic presentation. I was impressed with the marketing materials, including excellent photography and presentation that captured the property’s character and essence.
The conclusion of the sale was smooth and quick. Throughout the entire process I felt that I had chosen the best realtor. I highly recommend Andrea Gordon."
“We are very, very fortunate to have Andrea. We are demanding clients yet she is ever so patient with us. She is truly a professional. She could have taken the easy way out and not restaged our property but she did not do so. She took the hard way to do the place over and staged our property.
She did a lot of hard work behind the scenes without bothering us with the details. We really appreciate her for her hard work and effort in getting in the contractor, stager, the gardener, etc. The photography was excellent in showcasing our property. She has the pulse of the whole market in our area and was very accurate in her assessment and pricing.
What she told us, she delivered. She is someone whom we can trust. We are very pleased with Andrea's excellent service and she deserves our respect. Wonderful and amazing service.”
"My husband and I recently used Andrea to sell a very challenged house. We are very pleased with Andrea and her team. Since day one, Andrea was honest, transparent, knowledgeable, responsive and hard working.
My husband and I have bought or sold 13 homes in three different states and she is by far the best realtor we have had.
My husband is more laid back and I'm more anxious about selling real estate and she was great for both of our styles and personalities. Even before we listed the house, she was kind enough to provide her honest expertise on a refinance we were going through on the home, which wasn't benefiting her at all.
She cares about her clients. I look forward to recommending her team to others and using her again."
"We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Andrea. We sold our home in Rockridge - and have Andrea to thank for her guidance, insight, patience, experience, a lovely demeanor, generous heart and tough cookie drive - at all hours.
I can say she will go the extra extra mile to make your sale great. She will listen to what's most important to you and make sure your needs are addressed. She is genuine. And she has extensive resources and teams of people she works with in order to get the results you desire.
We hit many hiccups along the way and Andrea was there to advise and smooth everything out. She also stepped in and made lemonade out of lemons on more than one occasion. We truly cherish our relationship and only wish we would have met her sooner.
I cannot express how Andrea continues to amaze us anytime we need assistance – well past the close of escrow and sale of our home. We will certainly look forward to working with Andrea again in the future."
"Over the past two months, my wife and I worked with Andrea to sell our old home and purchase a new home. Andrea was our agent for both transactions – and she surpassed our expectations in all ways.
Her knowledge of the market, her relationships, diligence, and tenaciousness set her far above others in the local realtor community. We were able to sell our home in record time at a price that surpassed our expectations due to Andrea’s marketing strategy.
We were able to purchase our new home at a very aggressive price due to her local market knowledge and negotiating skills.
Just as important, Andrea is a great person to work with. You are not just a client. She takes the time to establish a personal relationship and understand your priorities. We highly recommend Andrea and will gladly work with her again for future real estate needs."
"Andrea was awesome from start to finish. When we first met with her to discuss selling our house, she took a consultative approach to understand our needs and objectives. Andrea gave us sound advice on marketing approach, factors that could affect the near-term housing market, pricing, timelines, etc.
She worked closely with the design company to keep renovations within our budget, while also making the house look fantastic inside and out.
Throughout the entire process, Andrea was a great communicator. As offers came in, she did a great job managing negotiations and guiding us through a flawless close of escrow. We trusted Andrea's experience and attention to detail and she delivered! We highly recommend her."
"I was in the difficult position of needing to sell a family home when I contacted Andrea. She came in with such enthusiasm and vision for what the house could – and needed to be – to get top dollar for our sale.
I was so grateful to have Andrea team up with me to sell the house; she is very knowledgeable and solved problems with ease and confidence. I could breathe easier knowing that we would get the job done no matter what came up along the way.
Then it was time to find a new home, and Andrea was right there with me once again. We both knew it when we found ‘the right’ one, and the next thing I knew I was signing papers for my dream home.
I am in a better place than ever before, and I thank Andrea for helping me get there."
"We hired realtor Andrea Gordon to sell our house in Oakland, and from inception to conclusion, we found her to be exceedingly honest, reliable, knowledgeable, efficient, and very friendly! She promptly returned phone calls, she listened to us attentively, and took appropriate actions when necessary to protect us as Sellers.
Her team also deserves compliments. Everyone on Andrea’s staff are highly professional, efficient, and trustworthy, and deserve "kudos" from us.
I highly recommend Andrea Gordon to anyone contemplating selling or buying real estate. You will not be disappointed."
"My wife and I worked with Andrea on the sale of our home in Oakland. We found her on Zillow because she had really great reviews, and she had 67 transactions in the past year, so we knew she was an expert.
She far exceeded our expectations! We had no idea that there were realtors out there that were not only extremely knowledgeable but also very hands-on through every step of the process. She came prepared in the first meeting with a bound book of comps to help us set realistic expectations about the sale of our house.
She was so easy to work with – but also she made a process, which is normally really stressful, as smooth as possible. If you work with Andrea you will not be disappointed!"
"My wife and I had a wonderful experience using Andrea to buy a home in Castro Valley. We found the house we wanted, and Andrea made it happen. Simple as that.
We ended up spending slightly more than we originally wanted, but that was not due to any fault of Andrea, but because of the multiple offers the seller received. If anything, her savvy helped keep the price down.
She is a very good strategist, and had excellent negotiating skills, which helped us avoid a bidding war. I have no doubt that her expertise is the reason we're one day away from closing on a fantastic house. She was honest, responsive, professional and it felt like she truly cared about our success. You can't really ask for more than that! Would highly recommend."
"My husband and I greatly enjoyed working with Andrea! She found us the perfect house in an area that we never even considered, but absolutely love. She was able to help us close on a short-sale house and get our keys in a month – which is unheard of!
My only complaint is that she is very busy, but this is only because she is so good at what she does and everyone wants to work with her.
I would highly recommend her for first time home buyers as the whole process can be intimidating at first, but with Andrea, her terrific team, and amazing contacts on your side, you are guaranteed a good deal and a smooth process!"
