I was a first time home-buyer and wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted. If Andrea hadn’t been so patient, I might have just given up and stayed a renter for the rest of my life. She is a lover of art and architecture so her eye and imagination really helped me see hidden potential, and is very knowledgeable about the renovation process… She knew when I needed to trust my own instincts, and when I needed her expertise. She is warm, friendly, and patient which always calmed my nerves when I was getting frazzled. After looking for a while, I decided to buy a fixer upper in an up and coming neighborhood. The house was neglected, and the seller’s agent was sometimes hard to reach. Andrea went above and beyond, especially when some last minute problems on the seller’s end threatened to delay my closing. She always answered her phone or called me back right away, and I always felt like she had everything under control. To have a realtor with such great taste and personality, and also such professionalism, took all the stress out of buying a house. Thanks, Andrea.
We have recently had the pleasure to work with several terrific Realtors in Virginia Beach, Tampa and Richmond. Andrea belongs at the top of the list. Professional, prepared, punctual, proactive and personable, we highly recommend her. The photo gallery of our house was a knockout.

Choosing Andrea to see us through the sale of our home of 40+ years was the smartest decision we could have made. She never failed to be positive in her outlook, always a smile, never failed to return our calls, and perhaps the very best recommendation we could make was her invaluable advice. Never did we dream of all the decisions that had to be made from the abandoned oil tank, to presentation of our home, to home warranty’s while our house was on the market. She held our hand the whole way through and the bottom line is – we got our asking price. It is with great pleasure and sincerity that we unconditionally recommend Andrea Levine.

We were thrilled to find Andrea after deciding to relocate to Richmond from the Boston area. She was able to ascertain our needs almost immediately, appreciated our desire to maintain a sense of urban living in a semi-suburban locale, and guided us toward neighborhoods and properties that would be a good fit for our family. Andrea demonstrated near super-human patience in the process, which involved an interview (apparently not the norm here in Richmond!), intensive home-buying trips to Richmond, multiple offers, and tough negotiations. Further, not only is she keenly focused on properties that are a good value, she has a terrific eye for detail and an innate sense of what will work in a renovation process, big or small. To top it all off, she’s an incredibly nice person. We couldn’t have been more pleased to have worked with her.

Andrea worked as our buyer’s agent for over a year as my wife and I searched Richmond for a house which was truly unique. Her patience and endurance during that search was remarkable. As we began to know each other, her vision for what we were seeking was uncanny. When she found that home, her guidance and advice through a tense bidding process was instrumental in our successful bid. Andrea was equally impressive in the listing and sale of our home. Her marketing concept was tailored to our home and our neighborhood and her preparations for the open house were meticulous. The result was a quick, solid contract at our asking price. In my business of renovating and building homes I have countless experiences with real estate agents. Put simply, Andrea’s professionalism, candor and vision is unparalleled.
