I highly recommend Andrea. From our first conversation through closing, she listened to my objectives, asked insightful questions, anticipated and provided comfort around my concerns, and never stopped tailoring her expert advice to my situation. I spent significant time before contacting her trying to identify the best house, neighborhood, and price point for my first home- both independently and with another agent – without success in narrowing a wide and shifting range of ideas. Andrea tackled my chaotic thinking tactfully, providing listings and useful insights that were responsive to all of those ideas and patiently helping to narrow the universe of possibilities. I don’t know whether she would agree with my views and preferences on houses but, like any great professional, she worked to understand my perspective and provided helpful advice that was tailored to me. Although the house I bought likely would not have come up based on my initial discussions with her, Andrea later identified it (within days of its listing on the market) as a possible fit and knew immediately at the viewing that it was what I had been seeking. The house attracted competitive attention and, without her swift reaction, good industry relationships, effective negotiating, and agility with market practices and legal obligations, I am confident I would not have gotten the house- much less at below listing. Andrea also pushed hard in negotiating over what might have seemed a relatively minor point that had become important to me, and she resolved it by getting all of what I wanted. Andrea continued to coordinate closing issues to make that new process as easy for me as possible. Having done more than I asked or expected on the way to a great result for me, Andrea did an excellent and I have no doubt she is just as effective with most other prospective home buyers.
