Andrea received national recognition in December, 2005, and was selected Agent-of-the-Month out of 22,000 agents. Singled out because of her results from customer satisfaction surveys, Andrea attained a record of consistently earning 100% client service satisfaction through the Quality Service Certification program. While no longer a part of the QSC program, Andrea consistently receives 100% client service satisfaction through quality service surveys sent out by CENTURY 21. In 2011-2016, Andrea earned the coveted Quality Service Pinnacle Award.
Andrea consistently earns sales achievement awards, and in 2013, she placed in the top 20 out of nearly 2,000 CENTURY 21 agents in the Great Lakes Region for high sales. In 2014, she earned the Masters Diamond Award for high sales. In 2013, 2015, and 2016, she earned the highly coveted President’s Award for high sales volume and exceptional customer service. She accomplishes this without an assistant, so when you give her a call, you reach her...and she knows what's going on.
Andrea is dedicated to continuing education and improving her knowledge of the real estate industry. In 2006, she earned the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation by attending an intensive curriculum of over 90 hours of classroom instruction. Earning the GRI designation is a mark of professional excellence in the real estate industry. Also in 2006, Andrea received her real estate Associate Broker's license. In 1995, she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Ferris State University and graduated with highest honors.
As an area resident since 1970, Andrea can confidently answer your questions about schools, employment, neighborhoods, businesses, churches, recreation, shopping, dining, and the arts. She is proud to be a long-time resident of the Traverse City area and a member of the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce and the Interlochen Chamber of Commerce.
When you place your home on the market for sale, it becomes a product...and it competes with other products. To gain an edge, homes must be priced right and look better than the competition. That's why Andrea, an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP), Stages her clients' homes. Homes that are Staged, or prepared for sale, by an ASP look better than other homes on the market by being clean and clutter-free, and Andrea provides this service free of charge to her clients. Out of more than 850 REALTORS in the Traverse City area, less than 5 have earned the ASP REALTOR designation.
In 2017, Andrea earned the Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist certification. She successfully completed the Resort and Second-Home Markets course along with three webinars in the field of resort and second-home real estate. She now joins a nationwide network of real estate professionals with specialized knowledge in buying and selling second homes in a resort, recreational, and/or vacation destination and properties for investment, development, and/or retirement.
In 2008, Andrea became the first REALTOR in the state of Michigan to earn the GREEN Designation from the National Association of REALTORS. As a GREEN designee, Andrea has gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for Traverse City. The designation helps consumers who care about energy efficiency and sustainable building practices feel confident that Andrea can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals.
With an Associate's Degree in Legal Assisting and seven years of experience in the legal profession, Andrea's work is always accurate and complete. She is an experienced negotiator and will aggressively represent your best interests. As her clients attest, "Andrea is a true partner and advocate."
