Among the dozens of agent solicitations I received to help me sell a house in probate, I chose Andrea because she exuded confidence in her ability to sell the home quickly and for the best price. I trusted her knowledge of the market based on her years of experience, coupled with her demonstrated successes. And I made the right choice. She helped me get the house ready for sale and brought me numerous offers in the first week, many over asking price. Then she expertly managed negotiations and escrow. But at the end of the day, what I appreciated most was her personal support, responsiveness to my needs as a (nervous) seller, and her unerring positive attitude. Not much else one could ask for in a real estate agent!
As first time homebuyers, we were incredibly happy to have connected with Andrea and Kayla. From moment one, they guided us through the process, were incredibly patient, explained every step we experienced, and were so responsive! During our initial meeting, they assured us that they were first there to build a relationship, and that we should never feel rushed or pushed. That was our exact experience. It took us several months, and when we finally found our new home, Andrea and Kayla were with us the entire time, re-explaining paperwork, ensuring our lender did their job in a timely manner, soothing frazzled nerves, and truly establishing that, indeed, a relationship had been formed, and trust was 100%. When we might have been willing to let a negotiation go, Andrea and Kayla explained why that should not be the case, and we got an even better price than anticipated. We learned a tremendous amount about purchasing a home, and, when and if we ever sell, we know exactly who we'll be calling! As the highest praise, I have shared Andrea's and Kayla's information with two colleagues eventually looking to purchase a home. And, on a side note, these two women are fantastic human beings! Thank you, Andrea and Kayla, for helping us become home owners. Even a longer commute cannot dampen our enthusiasm and joy as we embrace our new home and surroundings.
Mrs. Shink consulation was incredibly. Her expertise on how to sell my house saved me time and thousands of dollars. She made me feel as if I've known her for a long time. What sets her apart from other RE agents I've met in the past is the fact that she genuinely cares about her clients whether you are buying or selling. She took her time to explain to me in great detail what I needed to do to sell my out of state property. Thank you Kayla (Mrs. Shink daughter) for the opportunity you haven given me to meet your incredible and kind RE agent mom!
Before listing, Andrea took the time to walk through my mom's house and made recommendations of issues to address. She provided suggestions on service providers. She was responsive and organized - and great at troubleshooting. We found terrific tenants thanks to Andrea.
Deciding to sell our California home of many years to move to a retirement community in Florida was monumental; executing that move even more daunting. After due diligence we chose Andrea Shink to facilitate the process. Andrea posted on-line that a spacious townhome would become available in seven days and we received an offer before our home actually went on the market. We were spared the expense and tasks of staging and open-house showings. Andrea kept us apprised during steps in the process. Her optimism, enthusiasm and skill inspired confidence. We would highly recommend her services.
Andrea and her team did a great job selling our home. She is very knowledgeable and understands the real estate market. We would definitely recommend her for all your real estate needs.
Andrea took us through the whole process clearly and meticulously. She stayed with us the whole time, and we knew we could trust her to do the best she could considering the circumstances of the house that needed so much repair.
It has been a pleasure working with Ms. Shink to complete the sale of a probate property. She is professional and perceptive, and was respectful of the needs of the family in this situation. Ms. Shink developed a successful marketing strategy, leading to multiple offers. She also demonstrated patience and flexibility in dealing with the frequently changing COVID-19 constraints and guidelines to complete the transaction.
Very professional and efficient for listing and sale.
Great suggestion for staging property. Helped to acquire a great sale. Step by step process for completing contracts.
Recommend service anytime.
Andrea was referred to me by a friend, and she proved to be very helpful in my home buying experience. She is very experienced and insightful. She gave helpful advice, and she was not pushy. She responded quickly to my questions. I bought and sold 3 properties prior to my recent purchase, and Andrea Shink compares very favorably to the other realtors with whom I have worked
Congrats again on the close. You did a great job with Kirkside. We felt like we were in safe hands every step of the way. You had a deep understanding of the market, you did a great job negotiating, and you were very attentive to our needs.
Andrea is one of the best. I was recently faced with a death in the family that would have resulted in a real estate nightmare, had Andrea not stepped in to advise and assist me. Through her exceptional knowledge of all things real estate, and her excellent network of referrals, what could have been a drawn-out, painful, and expensive process, was handled as quickly and painlessly as possible - resulting in savings on the sale of a home that I might not otherwise have gotten. I have great respect for Andrea, and hope to avail myself of her help for future transactions.
I was very, very fortunate to have hired Andrea Shink. I was entrusted to be executor of my Aunts estate. Andrea was very knowledgeable about probate and real estate sales. She helped me deal with many unseen problems that developed with my Aunt's estate. When there was a fire at the house, just days before escrow closing, Andrea really shined. She put her skills to work in order to keep the buyers and bank interested in continuing with the closing of escrow. She spoke with the buyers and made calls to the bank to get it done. Any other agent would not have gone the extra mile. She truly cared and always returned my calls ASAP.
"Andrea is fantastic. She took the time to explain the marketing to me and within one week, there were seven offers. She took each offer seriously and had the patience to discuss each one with me in great detail. She negotiated the top four offers and her skills were par excellence. I would never have gotten the price that I got, had it not been for Andrea. I recommend her highly."
Andrea was the most fabulous realtor anyone could ever ask for, she is brilliant, attentive, available, kind, caring and helpful beyond expectations. I don't know when she sleeps because she was always right there with me, day or night, making sure every question was answered, any situation was resolved, and she always did so in a loving, graceful and utmost professional manner. I am so grateful and relieved that we found such a superstar who went the extra mile, dedicated so much time & energy to our sale and found the perfect buyer for our home. She is a blessing! I highly recommend Andrea to anyone who wants the best, she will prove herself to you over and over again :)
We've been blessed to have met Andrea at an open house across the street from us several years before purchasing a property. She always kept in touch, sharing her great knowledge of the market without being pushy. It ended up being a great advantage for us to have trust her to be our agent. She and her daughter have done a tremendous job! I rarely almost never write reviews but in this case I have to share about a wonderful experience.
Andrea has been a pleasure to work with. She took the time to explain everything and made the entire process very clear and easy.
She has been instrumental in us getting our property and was a hand holder and a great strategist until the deal was closed. We were very happy with her work.
I take a holistic approach…it's not about the "bricks and the sticks" for me. It’s about how I can help each family or individual fulfill their long-term goals.
