Andrea was such a great help to us in selling our South Park home. Even with the trying times we are currently living in, with regards to the worldwide Covid-19 crisis, she helped us navigate successfully through our sale. She was, apparently, our good luck charm, because things that could have derailed the whole thing somehow worked out on our side. She was the calming voice when we were worrying over the process. It will forever be a memorable experience: selling our first house in a pandemic! Francisco was also a big help to us and we want to thank him as well. We would definitely recommend Andrea to any of our friends, or anyone who is thinking about buying or selling. Lance & Britta LaFave 2020
My wife and myself were beyond newbies when it came to buying a house. We had never even looked at a house or spoken to a realtor until recently when what is now our new home came up for sale across the street from our apartment. I called Andrea Frank and within 1 minute of speaking with her my first impression was integrity
She could not have been more accommodating from day one by coming over to show us the property at two different times. We told her we were interested in buying the place and she had the ball rolling that same night by setting up a meeting for us with a lender the very next morning. Long story short since this was our first time we had a million questions and concerns throughout the entire process. Andrea was the most understanding and patient person you could ever deal with. She basically held our hands and walked us through from beginning to end assuring us the whole time. We will never again consider purchasing or selling a house without her representation! Thank you beyond words Andrea!
Lance & Lauren Lohse 2018
To anyone selling their home: We owned our home for 30 years, hard to part! Andrea and Francisco were with us every step of the way, finding the right buyer, preparing our house to put on the market, the incredible support and help that we received from them, they are not just great realtors, they also became wonderful friends. You may put your trust in them to make the transaction smooth and worry free. Thank you Andrea and Francisco!
Mark & Lynn Shaw 2018
Andrea and her team did a fantastic job selling our condo and made the entire process far easier that expected. Her recommendations and strategy for getting the right buyer at the highest sale price were spot on; she was professional and friendly throughout the process; and her timely communication kept us in the loop and allowed us to relax through what could have been a stressful process. I recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor they can trust and rely on.
Gregory Berg 2018
Great broker, easy to work with, wish all my transactions involved Andrea Frank.

Serving Seniors is a San Diego nonprofit that provides food shelter and services for low income and homeless seniors in our county. Needless to say, when a home was donated to Serving Seniors in June, we needed an agent who could be a trusted advisor and get the maximum sales price. We provide 2,300 meals each day to needy seniors, so the profit that would come from this home was crucial to fulfilling our mission. Andrea navigated a scenario that included a house that was in bad shape and would require very special buyers, and then later a complicated buyer situation.
When all was said and done, the other agents who wanted to sell the property all suggested selling at a lower price. Andrea was able to command a price for the house that that was considerably above and beyond the other agents. Let's just say that nearly 20,000 meals for needy seniors will be purchased with the extra dollars that Andrea was able to fetch for the property.
As a nonprofit that is not accustomed to selling real estate, we felt well taken care of and expertly advised and we are truly grateful for the quick and effective work that Andrea did to get the best price with the least amount of headaches. We thank you, Andrea, and the thousands of seniors we serve each day thank you!
Rick Roark, Chief Financial Officer Serving Seniors 2015
Andrea made a very good impression on our first meeting. She presented her selling philosophy that included but not limited to the latest methods of attracting home buyers like staging your home. She also introduced a pricing method to attract a broader range of home buyers. It was proven to be very effective; because right away it generated several offers on the property, and as a result our home was sold in no time at all and for more than the asking price.
Andrea and teammate, Francisco, made the process very painless; by keeping close contact with their client. They provided suggestions that really worked to our advantage. Helping with quick-fix and updating current housing requirements or obvious discrepancies that older homes needed before the house was put on the market, and before the close of the escrow.
In conclusion, if anyone is looking for a truly professional realtors, GO for team Andrea and Francisco! They really go Above and Beyond their obligations as realtors. If you GO for Team Andrea and Francisco, you will not only sell your home in a shortest possible time, you will also gain lifetime friends.
Dan & Mary Carpio 2015
It wasnt a day or two after notifying Andrea of our intent to market our South Park home, when we were presented with at least three or four viable offers.
Ultimately we received free and clear more than what we anticipated as our homes value to be.
The convenience of Andreas and Franciscos handling of details, i.e. asking price, paperwork, one on one with prospective clients, bankers and realtors, was well worth her commission!
Whether purchasing or selling a home Andrea and her associates were efficient and skilled professionals.
James & Jeanie St. Laurent 2015
It is my distinct pleasure to recommend Andrea Frank to assist you in your real estate transaction.
I am so pleased that I chose Andrea to help me sell my home. She, and her partner Francisco, conducted themselves in a most knowledgable and professional manner. They listened to and addressed my concerns, met all my requests, and answered all my questions in a very timely manner. Andrea put together a stellar marketing package for my property. She lined up an escrow officer and company that she knew would work well with me.
The result was that my home sold quickly and for more than the listed price. The escrow closed within 6 weeks. It was a win all the way around.
Mary Ann Sandersfeld 2015
To anyone looking to buy or sell a house,
I wanted to write a few words about Andrea Frank, and her business partner, Francisco. We had the pleasure of both selling our house, and then buying another, using Andrea and Francisco as our realtors.
My husband and myself wanted to sell our wonderful home of 11 years, due to our expanding family, but were so overwhelmed by the prospect of how to make it happen. We were overcome with inertia over the idea, until one day I ran into Andrea at an open house in the neighborhood. She was so warm and happy, and fun to talk to. She convinced us to give the process a try. And the whole time, Andrea was there to walk us through every step and she didnt let it get overwhelming. Andrea and Francisco were so helpful and thoughtful, and so completely supportive. We always felt in good hands with them, and knew we could trust them with these important decisions.
In the end, we sold our home for over asking price with multiple offers, and were able to purchase our dream home within our budget. We could not be happier with the service and support of Andrea and Francisco. I would highly recommend them to anyone that is considering buying or selling a home.
The Hallins 2014/15
This is a review for Andrea Frank. There is no better agent than Andrea. This woman goes above and beyond what anyone would expect of her. She helped me sell five properties in the last three years. Andreas expertise, talent and experience, makes everything looks simple! Shes a true professional. Shes five star!
Edward James 2015
Andrea was amazing ! She helped us sell our unique property. Our house was built in 1910 and had several issues. She was honest and supportive through the entire process. At one point she was even able to bring investors that she knew to the table. She was able to close the deal on a house that we thought we would never sell and she got us the price we were looking for. We recommend her very highly especially for individuals in the South Park area as this area is very unique and requires someone like Andrea who really knows her stuff.
Ellen Rodarte 2014
I chose Andrea Frank for the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home in South Park. The entire process from beginning to ending was smooth. Andrea provided outstanding and reliable service. She was personable, honest and accessible. I will definitely contact Andrea for any future real estate transactions and highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Sharon English 2014
Andrea was a true professional when helping us to buy our first home. She was patient and honest with us, with our best interests always on the forefront. She was always accessible, and very knowledgeable about the housing industry. Andrea became more of a friend, then a realtor, and I would definitely recommend working with her.
Ryan & Meghan Cartidge 2014
This review is for the awesome team of Andrea Frank and Francisco Bazan. They helped us buy our gorgeous South Park Craftsman home in 2010, and then helped us sell it (at a very nice profit!) in 2014. As both buyers and sellers agent, they did a top-notch job (which is why we used their services again). Their knowledge, communication and attention to detail were superbwhich was especially important to us as first-timers, both buying and sellingand they are experts when it comes to the Uptown neighborhoods (North/South Park, Uni Heights, Hillcrest, Normal Heights, etc.). Most importantly to us, they are very personable and warm, which made the entire experience a pleasure (and as a result, they became good friends as well as business partners). I cant imagine using any other real estate team in San Diego. Take 30 minutes of your time to meet them, and youll want to hire them too!
Michael and Cassie Strickland 2014
We are so grateful for all you have done for us. All the work you did while selling the Edgemont St property in South Park, not to mention the patience it took to get us through the process, was more than we could have asked for. Thank you so much for being such a great asset to our family. We couldnt have survived this sale without you. Good luck with your real estate business.
Bill and Ginger Choate 2014
FYI: If you are buying or selling your home, I have the BEST Realtor EVER! She works her ASS off what should have taken 2 weeks: getting pre-qualified for a loan, getting a professional to stage your home (who knew that this was even a JOB?!) for photos, arrange the photography, put your home on the market, and have an Open House took 4 days!!! AND, she is also a BULLDOG when it comes to buying. She knows her shit and can bargain! She will SO work for you, help you understand the market and be honest and up-front about everything! Her name is Andrea Frank, with Ascent Real Estate. I never recommend a business, but I am truly impressed!
Jeanne Chacon 2014
I hope you will understand, by my recommendation, that I think Andrea Frank is an exceptional Realtor. I sold my very first home in JAN 2013, it was a custom built home with a view, quiet and peaceful, I lived there since it was built, almost 30 years. The home was located in Lakeside CA, I adored my home. Due to family commitments, I needed to sell quickly, but obtain a good selling price. I needed a professional with drive to sell it. Most important to me I wanted someone with integrity to get me through the process successfully, so I could move on quickly.
Andrea was recommended to me by a longtime friend and coworker. Andrea was exactly as he described her, and did what he told me she would do. Andrea was friendly, strait forward and kind. She took me step by step though the sale process, explained my options during every step, answered my questions completely & respectfully. She knows her business, including what the state regulations and real estate processes require. I appreciated the extra effort and time Andrea gave me to help me understand the market, appraisals, and provide me with resources and information when I asked. I asked for help often. Andrea did her homework and was prepared for whatever came up during the process. I sold my home in 4 days, for a price I was happy with, and the entire process was professional, legal and completed efficiently.
Six months after my sale, I recommended Andrea to a friend of mine who was seriously ill, retiring and then moving back East. My friend was not well during this process and needed a professional with drive to sell it and integrity to get her though the process successfully. My friend had been sick for some time and the condo was in as is condition. Andrea sold my friends home for a price she was happy with, and in about two weeks. My friend was very happy and told me that Andrea was just what she needed- she was friendly and kind, worked fast, explained what was going on, gave options and sold her San Diego condo fast. I will continue to recommend Andrea. Actions speak louder than words, Andrea has proven track record, is professional, kind and the best person I know to help you with buying or selling real estate. Again, my experience was 100% positive. Andrea built a long term relationship with me by her exceptional actions and results. I will continue to recommend Andrea, she is exceptional and so are her results.
Connie Ward 2013
JAN 2014, one year after my house sold!
It has been a pleasure working with Andrea as she represented us in the sales process of our parents home. We were always confident that she had our best interests in mind and that she would implement the necessary steps in the sales process at the appropriate time. Andrea ensures that her clients fully understand the steps of the transaction and uses good judgment as to what to communicate with the client. Andrea consistently exceeded standards expected of a sales agent, and her performance was excellent overall on a continual basis. Through Andreas effectiveness in delivering results, she has developed a personal and professional credibility with our family and we highly recommend utilizing her services to represent clients in the sale or purchase of what is likely to be the largest asset of their estate.
Enrique and Luiz Carlos Chacon 2013
Andrea took us through the daunting escrow experience of title searches, disclosures, inspections and contract law with a sure hand and knowledgeable experience. She provided a professional and personal approach to her job that enabled us to have a secure feeling about the sale of our Bancroft St property in South Park. We are presently looking for another residence and she, as always, is performing above and beyond the call of duty. She not only is our realtor but our friend and last but not leastour dog loves her!!!
Jeri and Laurice Scheidel -2013
I am a lifelong resident of Golden Hill/South Park and have recently sold three properties in the area. Andrea represented me as the listing agent in all three transactions. She is very knowledgeable about properties in the area. I found her to be very professional, handling paper work in a timely manner and keeping me informed at all times concerning the progress of the transactions. She is very helpful and fun to work with.
Patricia Lee 2013
My wife and I had a great experience working with Andrea Frank in selling our house in South Park San Diego, and we highly recommend her. From start to finish, she has been a consummate professional, and is very dedicated. Her hard work paid off we sold our house very quickly in a touch economic climate. She guided us in everything from renovations through closing, and every step along the way. We couldnt have done it without her.
Thanks for everything Andrea,

This is my third home I have bought and sold in San Diego, CA. since 1988
Recently I sold my home in South Park for $525,000.00. This is great but why did my house sell so quickly and get valued over all the other comps that appraised much lower than mine? Andrea Frank thats why. As soon as she became my agent she transformed the place to have interior and exterior curb appeal and used her interior decorating skills to make me wonder why I wanted to sell in the first place. Within the first week we had a solid offer for the asking price and I believe buyers fully expected the property to appraise for much lower than it did. When the appraiser arrived Ms. Frank made an absolutely outstanding effort to establish the value in my home, and it worked! Once the deal was made there were constant variables that challenged every detail of the agreement. If you throw in the diversity of personalities she had to deal with it would have been overwhelming for most agents to even begin to undertake. Andrea did this with ease and was on top of every obstacle as it arose and made it very accommodating for my extremely busy schedule. She not only did this for me. She also created a comfort zone for the buyers and their agent as well. Within one month I was paid in full and everyone was happy including the buyers. Andrea knows what can go wrong and plans for the worst, which is what gives her that cutting edge. You need that in todays market to get what you expect from your property you want to liquidate. Not only did she become my agent, but also a close friend. Shes amazing, sincere, and works overtime in your interest this is Andrea Frank. You wont be sorry I promise you!
If you would like to know more please call me at (619) 905-5444.

We highly recommend Andrea Frank as a sellers or buyers Real Estate Agent.
Andrea encompasses the highest standards of professionalism with special detail
given to character, responsiveness, and accessibility. Andreas outstanding

attention to detail in three areas:

accessibility to best suit her clients and takes special care in making sure
messages are delivered in a timely and concise fashion. Andrea keeps her
commitments and appointments without hesitating to communicate last minute

of a real estate transaction. She works closely with the Escrow Company, the
Buyer/Seller Real Estate Agents, Inspectors and Contractors, the Title Company,

To whom it may concern:
If you are looking for a Realtor, I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Andrea Frank. In May of 2009 I had to help my son sell his house in the Hillcrest area of San Diego. She impressed me with her knowledge of the area, the local real estate market and her passion for the business. The sale of the property was anything but normal. We had to deal with numerous problems, not least of which was a bankruptcy filing. Andrea remained committed throughout and helped us through a particularly difficult period in my sons life with empathy and encouragement. In my opinion, Andrea went well above and beyond what I could reasonably expect from a realtor. In addition to handling the transaction in a thoroughly professional manner, she did a whole lot more like organizing work to turn the back yard from a disaster into something attractive, rolling up her sleeves and helping clean the house, providing plants to make the place more appealing, watering the yard to keep plants alive, staging the property to reveal its potential and finally helping us pack my sons belongings. I will always be grateful to Andrea.
David Bluck Chief Technologist, SimSci-Esscor 2009
Andrea, I wanted to tell you how much I have appreciated your work during the transaction for our North Park house. You were very professional in all occasion, very friendly and always present for us. It was so comfortable, so efficient and so nice. Thank you so much. I will recommend you. You are the best real estate agent in all San Diego.
Laurent and Frederique Schilde 2008
I, Earl Crippen, the client of Andrea Frank, want to say Andrea has been the best, the most caring and the most helpful agent I have ever had pleasure to do business with. She really cares about her clients needs and she is all business to find the best deal for selling my brothers and our real estate property in South Park. Andrea is very honest and I did trust her judgment and her advice. She had great people to help her, her escrow officer Donna Hamilton also went the extra mile to make this sale a success. She put a lot of time in this sale and it paid off. I would advise anyone to have her as an agent. My neighbors said she was very good and knew her business when she sold their house across the street, they were right. Andrea is very friendly and very professional. Thank you Andrea for your help!
Earl Crippen 2008
I cannot tell how much I appreciated all the hard work done by Andrea Frank in her efforts to sell my mother Ruth Woynars home at 1342 Gregory St. I feel you should know how much Andrea did to go above and beyond the call of duty for us. If Andrea is the example of the quality of Realtors that have at Century 21, she surely must all be the best of the best! She is to be congratulated!
Andrea was so kind and patient with my mother during the past months after she listed the house. She kept in contact with us almost on a daily basis to keep us informed of her showings and the many Open House events she scheduled. But most of all, I find it difficult to imagine that anyone could work so hard to sell a home. Any homeowner would be proud to have Andrea Frank's name as the listing realtor.
I wanted you to know that we can never thank Andrea enough. She is to be commended for all her hard work and efforts .Andrea certainly deserves the Realtor of the Year Award, if there is such a thing.
Once again, on behalf of my mother Ruth, and my siblings and me, we extend our most heartfelt thanks to Andrea Frank! She is wonderful!
Sharron Quinn On behalf of Ruth Woynar 2007
I write to express my gratitude and thanks to your office, but especially to Andrea Frank. In my view, it is because of her extra efforts that we were able to sell our San Diego home and buy our next house. In short, any prospective home seller would be lucky to have Andrea work for them.
Thank you again.
David Ernst, Esq. (Law offices of Backus, Bland, Navarro & We) 2007
Andrea, thank you for your perseverance when things got difficult. We feel fortunate that we received a good offer in a short time, especially in this changing market. You played a vital role in helping us achieve our goal and we want to acknowledge all your efforts. We wish you the best and hope that you have much success in your career.
Elizabeth Blessing and Marc Linn 2007
I have to say that putting my house on the market during this serious financial crisis and at a time when the word foreclosure seemed to be a household name was a difficult decision. My home that Andrea Frank sold just this month (November 12) was not only an investment, but a home that Id nurtured and felt safe in for the past 19 years. Making the decision to sell it was a big one, but selecting an agent to represent me was even bigger. I chose a 90-day listing with her and she successfully sold my home in just 3 short months.
I had seen Andrea's listings throughout South Park and had taken mental notes as to if and when they sold. Not only did she appear to have a good track record with listings and sales, but she was also visible via mailings featuring just sold homes and with notepads with her contact information that would be left on the front porch. I purposefully kept a flier with one of her listings in my area just in case I ever decided to sell my home.
Well, that day finally came and I always knew that Andrea Frank would be my choice based on my intuition and my observation of her work ethic. I am here to tell you that from the moment I finally met her, Ive never been disappointed by her strong desire to, work for me as a priority in selling my house and to personalize everything along this sometimes stressful journey. She is professional, classy, knowledgeable and serious about working with whomever she sets out to do business with. She has been nothing but pleasant, accommodating and simply dynamic. It is with my utmost sincerity that I recommend Andrea Frank as your choice for meeting all your real estate needs. She is better than I could ever have imagined and has absolutely exceeded my expectations in representing me and my interests.
Do yourself a favor and call Andrea Frank today if youre thinking of buying or selling a property. I always research things and put them under a microscope before making a commitment and Im here to tell you that the homework has been done for you. And for any of you in the community who know mewell, then you know I dont go out on a limb for someone unless the compliment is well deserved. You simply wont be disappointed with Andrea Frank and she has a great accent to boot. It has been my sincere pleasure to work with Andrea Frank. Id absolutely select Andrea Frank again!
Amanda Crouch South Park Resident 19 years 2006
Andrea Frank was extremely helpful during the anxious experience of purchasing my first home. She was available on weekends to drive me around to the approximately 20 properties we looked at. She was available 7 days a week to answer all my questions. There were a few things she did that were above and beyond the call of duty. One example is when she called the COX cable company to find out the services that would be available for my new home. Thank you for bringing this transaction to a successful conclusion.
