"Had a very good experience with Andrea buying our first home. We looked at many places until we finally found the perfect one, and she was helpful in negotiating with the sellers to have work done on the house before the sale. I definitely recommend her to potential buyers." - Jeremiah
"I am a first time home buyer and after talking to some buyer agents and loan agents, I was very shocked and upset by the crazy real estate market here in Pennsylvania. Andrea Hanratty totally changed the situation, actually she told me as long as I am motivated, we will get a house, and yes, in 1 month, I got my dream house in PA with an awesome deal and was able to close on the house as well in this short period of time. As a doctor, I am usually very thorough and like to work with an agent who is always on top of everything, professional, helpful, and conscious.
Andrea is very professional, honest, direct and sharp, she will tour the houses that I liked and then shared her opinions, and that is why I love working with her. I did lots of research and talked to several agents, so I know most of the agents in this area only want buyers to add more money but will not share their own thoughts or think in buyers' shoes. Yes, bidding up the purchase price is not avoidable, but Andrea will tell me what range is reasonable for a house, and will tell me when to stop bidding.
Andrea is warm, nice, easy to communicate with, always available to answer your questions, never hesitate to help, and very knowledgable about the housing market in PA. She sent me so many listings, gave me her opinions on each house's pros and cons, all in a very honest and professional way.
Andrea didn't stop working after the offer was accepted, she guided me through the whole closing process, answered all my questions and always was on my side to coordinate with the title company and loan agent.
Buying a house is tough, buying a house in 1 month is even tougher! Don't listen to those "all cash is the king" or "dual-agent is the only way" or "just adding money". What you truly need is one agent who listens and understands your situation and expectations, then helps you quickly get familiar with this market, quickly responds to your messages/calls even in late night like 11 pm, and finally guides you to your dream house.
Andrea was super helpful at all times during the process. We never felt lost or misguided during the quest to find our new home.
As a first time home buyer, I didn't know what to do, what to ask or expect. Andrea took us through the process and was organized and efficient, answering all our questions and calls at all times.
She worked tirelessly for us to close on our house as soon as possible and the entire experience was amazing. I won't be in the market again for a while but all of my friends and colleagues that are, I'll be passing along Andrea's info!" - Dave
"I contacted Andrea to help me find a rental. After living in my house for 15 years I was apprehensive about the process or renting. Andrea was solid, knowledgeable, kind and available which was much needed during my time of transition. I was continually impressed and grateful that Andrea treated my search for a rental with as much attention and consideration as she would a sale. In addition to her availability and patience while I figured out what it was, I was looking for- she helped negotiate the terms of the lease. I knew she had my back through the whole process. I strongly recommend working with Andrea." - Rebecca
"Andrea showed us homes in several neighborhoods that matched our admittedly vague desires. In the process, she helped us figure out what would best suit our needs. She always made herself available - whether for a showing or answering simple questions. With her guidance, we eventually found the right home at the right price for our needs. Highly recommend." - Craig
"I had to leave my home of 18 years and couldn't have done it without Andrea. From the moment we met to begin the conversation about selling my home to the final signature and beautiful orchid gift that brought tears to my eyes, Andrea was rock-solid, professionally and personally speaking. I needed to work with someone with whom I could be transparent about the details of my decision to put my house on the market, someone I could trust with my tears, questions, and insecurities about the process, and someone who could help me stay focused. Andrea is a warm and genuinely kind, helpful woman and as a realtor, a brilliant professional. If you are looking for a realtor that will exceed your expectations, she's the one for you. My house was listed, shown, and sold within one week...and three months later, I'm in my new two bedroom apartment near hiking trails and a bubbling creek. Definitely call her!" -Ann
