★★★★★ "Working with Andrew was an absolute pleasure. His professionalism, knowledge, gracious demeanor, and respect amongst industry peers eased the process for all concerned. We had to confront an uncertain time frame for putting our house on the market. This would have presented logistic issues for most agents, but Andrew was adaptive to our changing needs/whims/ideas and remained engaged throughout a protracted process. When we were finally ready, we opted to show the house off-market. Andrew's contacts and marketing strategy for this approach fielded numerous buyers which resulted in multiple offers at a competitive asking price. As we look back on the experience, Andrew's personal integrity was a constant; recommending and managing vendors, adjusting timelines, honest communication, sound insightful counsel, and on-demand availability to show the house to prospective buyers. Even after closing, he worked with us and the new owners and their agent through a lengthy rent-back until they took possession. Andrew is simply in a league of his own in this industry." - MARINELLI FAMILY, Clients

★★★★★ "I want to try to describe how helpful you were to me personally in this whole process. I felt as if I had someone I could count on. Let me explain.
Right from the start I knew your approach was to call everything as you saw it. I so appreciated that from the beginning, you told us honestly that the house was not for everyone and that especially the younger buyer would be inclined to make many major changes. Preparing us for that reality made the process feel both more unsettling (because I didn't want them to change the character of the house), but also helped me to see the need to reduce the price to cover the expenditures such changes would incur.
Furthermore, you were the one that was here the weekend that the dream offer was received and you got everything lined up so beautifully and handled it with so much conviction. Your ongoing communication about the buyers, both about their style and their process, settled me down and got me ready to feel good about selling to them. I suspect my mother would be very happy to know that this is the family that will be living in 'her' house.
Thank you for easing this process. It can be a very emotional one, especially when it was so tied up with our mother's life. You are a very fine realtor and I know you will be very successful in this community.
