I am a born educator. In the past, I have been part of Seattle's Lakeside School's multiday wilderness leadership program. It was rewarding to see the students, adults as well as teens, not just learn basic skills but to be able, by the last two days of the trip, to take the lead. I've also trained and certified sea kayaking instructors.
I've benefited from education too. My degree in 1987 from the Jackson School of International Studies, along with the ability to speak some French and Spanish, opened my eyes to culture, world affairs and trade. All great preparation for working with many different people from different walks of life in their pursuit of a home.
Helping people move to the next chapter of their lives, either by selling their current one and buying a new one, is what I love most about being a broker. And educating clients on all aspects of the real estate process, to make reaching their real estate goals, is where I excel.
Before becoming a broker, I spent 18 years in desktop publishing and web design. I had my first email account in 1989 and many people have called me an early adapter to the internet. Good thing, because knowing how to navigate the MLS, how to research properties or do a thorough comparative analysis are essential to helping clients find their dream home - or to sell a beloved family home at a great price.
I love project management, so helping clients prepare their home for sale, or working through issues that come up with any given transaction, is satisfying to me. It's where my ability to logically think through and solve problems shines. An asset that makes me the broker you want to have in your corner.
If you're ready to take that next step in your life, please contact me. Let's work together.
I chose to work with Coldwell Banker Bain because of the the support and tools my company gives me.
When I am not working I spend my leisure time in hobbies such as dancing, gardening, walking my dog, skiing, paddleboarding and kayaking.
Molly Smith - Andree did a wonderful job selling my condominium in Edmonds. It was difficult to sell for many reasons, most notably a legal issue that the condominium building was involved in. Andree was very persistent with marketing, open houses, and ultimately finding a way for the one buyer to proceed with a loan. She went beyond what a typical broker would do to make this deal go through. I felt that she was professional and courteous in all her interactions with all parties involved. She did an excellent job for me. I highly recommend her!
Kennith Zelin- Andree kept on top of things, and was in constant contact with the financing company keeping things moving. I would happily use her again. The process was smooth and easy. Kept us well informed of every step. Communication was excellent. That was the best part. We always knew what was happening. (Buyer's Agent)
Michael Morris - Andree is organized, thorough and professional. Our communication was clear and concise. Andree is a top professional who has the experience and knowledge to help a seller or buyer in their real estate transaction. (Listing broker).
Mike Evans - Andree is a very communicative, productive and creative agent. (Listing broker).
Morella Bombardini - The professional manner in which Andrée conducted herself was exceptional...on a personal level she showed she cared by treating me as a member of her family. I appreciated her empathy and hard work. (Buyer's Agent).
