Andy Johnson, owner of Coldwell Banker Coast Real Estate has been the most helpful and caring realtor I have worked with. I have lived in four different homes over the last 45 years in three different states and he far exceeds the past realtors that I have worked with. He cared about finding me the right home and listened to everything that I said I was looking for and listened to any concerns I had. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house without any worries and concerns about anything. Andy gets the job done fast and precise and if I ever need any help with future houses for my family or I, I surely know who I am going to use.

I feel very thankful to have gotten to work with Andy Johnson and feel as if he has an attention to detail that makes even the most nervous buyer feel at ease. He spent a lot of time with me explaining the process and walking me through a very difficult sale.
I worked with Andy negotiating a rental contract in late 2013. While I have read many positive recommendations, I found Andy difficult to work with on many levels. He was unresponsive to E-mails. In fact, in many cases, E-mails went completely unanswered. Telephone inquires also were not returned although the receptionist assured me that messages were being left on his desk. In addition, to being unresponsive to my concerns, Andy’s fairness in dealing with challenging situations and negotiations is questionable. For example, a reasonable request for original receipts for work done on the property were never produced despite repeated requests to produce receipts. This interaction with Andy led me to believe that the work on the rental property may not have ever been done. I am sure Andy is an adequate real estate agent and a competent owner of Coast Real Estate; however, I unfortunately cannot recommend him or his company to list, sell, or rent your property.
Absolutely the best realtor I have ever worked with. He was extremely efficient, always in contact with us, and exceeded what he needed to do for us. He worked with the contractors for needed repairs, stayed in contact with all other parties involved in the sale, and either phoned or emailed us in a timely fashion.

Andy is a joy to work with. He happily showed us many lakefront homes and lots lots in and around Florence. He was a great resource for understanding why particular locations were better than others due to wind and traffic patterns. That kind of knowledge comes from being a local boy.
Throughout the bidding and closing process Andy was very helpful and always accommodating. He had a good understanding of what the seller was willing to accept and the whole process went as planned out from the start. We couldn't have asked for a better agent to work with.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Florence, OR.
I had never sold a home before until the fall of 2012. I had a five acre rural property with a four bedroom house on it and it was just too much for me to maintain any longer. Because of the partnerships that Andy has formed in the community, without hesitation I knew that he was the one that I would like to list my home with. He listened to what my desired outcomes were, was very professional and realistic with the selling price. The house was listed in the spring of 2012 and sold after being on the market for only 2 1/2 months. I couldn't believe it, but was thrilled.
My next goal was to find a townhome/condo in the city limits and again I asked Andy to assist me with relocating. The demands of my job kept me from researching opportunities and it was comforting to know that Andy was looking out for my interests. He found the perfect spot centrally located in Florence and I couldn't be happier. I have had the best experience one could imagine with selling and buying a new home. Florence is very lucky to have Andy Johnson and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had an excellent experience with Andy. My family agreed that he made all the difference and we would recommend him to anyone. He took his time and patiently explained things we didn't understand and helped us to navigate the sometimes complicated real estate world. We are very thankful for our experience with Andy Johnson and we will be sure to use him for all of out future buying and selling needs.
Andy is a good man and a wonderful Agent! He knows the area as he grew up in this region. He has a stellar team of people working for him and he runs a well-known business. He worked tirelessly with us to help us through the process of purchasing a rental property. We didn't get the property as a bidding war ensued and we felt we couldn't pay more than a set amount. Regardless, we would highly recommend Andy. He will put in the time and effort needed.
