We have both purchased and sold a home through Andrew and have been very impressed with all aspects of his service. We have dealt with a number of realtors over the last 15 years as it appears we love to move and while the transactions have always been completed , there were always realtor issues to overcome on our way to a successful conclusion. Having worked with Andrew on both aspects of a real estate transaction , I’ve been able to witness his sharp sense of key market conditions, empathy with clients, top notch marketing, and a passion for getting the best deal for his clients. Because of his youth and relative newness in the industry, we were initially reluctant to utilize his services, but his presentation and obvious market awareness won us over and we are extremely fortunate that we made that decision. As it turned out, his youth was a positive in the energy and enthusiasm demonstrated on our numerous house hunting trips in the greater Puget Sound area. It also helped that he was very aware of the social network sites that provided us with a number of leads both in the sale and the purchase of our homes. Andrew is very accurate in his recommended pricing and gauges home values quickly. His recommendations for a listing price for our home was right on the money. While other comparable listings in our area languished on the market for months, our listing sold in less than 90 days and I attribute that to our agreeing to Andrew’s recommended price point. His marketing concepts were very good including the utilization of the above social networking sites and his utilization of a professional photographer showcased our home beautifully. In negotiating the very best deal for us, both in selling and then again in buying, he was remarkable. The concessions we received were considerably more than we expected. He knows how to present an offer so that both parties feel like winners an important consideration in gaining acceptance of your offer. Andrew has proven his commitment to success for us with his stunning level of personal service. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell a home and at any price point.
As a first time homebuyer I was overly excited about my adventure to purchasing a home. I was referred to Andrew by a coworker who spoke volumes of his work ethic and passion for real estate. After going on our first tour, I knew Andrew would get me into the perfect house for me. I ended up purchasing a short sale, which was extremely tough to negotiate. Andrew went to bat for me, and when dealing with banks, it was great to have him on my side. It was not an easy transaction, but Andrew kept me in the loop every step of the way. I was able to focus on my everyday life and my own career; because I knew what was happening behind the scenes was getting taken care of! I love my new home in Seattle and when the time comes, will call on Andrew for his services again!
I have known Andrew for just over 2 years. When it was time for me to purchase a new home, I knew he was the one to call. I have always enjoyed talking to Andrew about real estate because he is incredibly knowledgeable and made the topic interesting. It was always fun to hear his take on the “national” news in comparing it to the local market. When it was finally ready for me to take the real estate plunge, I asked Andrew to help me out. We started out looking much further in advance than I had anticipated, but it really gave me the time needed to pick out the perfect home. Along every step of the way, Andrew described different neighborhoods, pointed out his favorite restaurants, and informed me of schools (public and private) and also the different style of homes. After a few weeks of touring the area, I found a home that I fell in love with. Andrew’s extensive understanding of the contracts put me to ease, as it was a little overwhelming at first. With his strong negotiating tactics, we were able to get the sellers to bring their house down over $20,000 dollars, and pay most of my closing costs! Not only will I use Andrew again for my real estate needs, but I would refer him to anyone looking for a knowledgeable realtor who is a ton of fun to work with!
