Andrew was our realtor twice. The first time, we were selling our longtime home in Benicia. Andrew assessed our home, made recommendations for minor upgrades and repairs and helped us find reputable contractors to do the work. He was always respectful of our budget and our goals and told us which fixes would give us the most bang for our buck. Our home sold quickly at a price we were happy with. Other, similar homes remained on the market much longer than ours.
Andrew was also our realtor when we found and purchased our next home in Benicia. Our needs had changed and he showed us several homes that met our criteria. It was clear that he had good relationships with other realtors (essential whether you're buying or selling a home). He also has an in-depth knowledge of the market. We found a home we loved. He walked us through the entire purchase process, lined up inspections and interacted seamlessly with the sellers. This was an unusual sale in certain ways, and Andrew made it smooth and successful. We hit a snag with an agreement and he corrected the situation immediately.
Additionally, Andrew is a person of great integrity. That matters so much when you're engaged in such an important endeavor. Can't say enough good things about him.
