Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Belltown, Seattle, WA.
Andrew helped us purchasing our first condo home, and before we finally decided on purchasing Andrew has been showing us around and sending us updates for more than a year, Andrew has been extremely patient and always nice and responsive to our requests. One example is in the middle of purchasing and close to closing stage, we decided to switch to a different loan provider just because a much better rate, Andrew helped us thoroughly think through the pros/cons, and actively communicated with seller and reached mutual agreement so that we could get some extension and switch to the ideal loan agent.
The entire purchasing experience was incredible and we couldn't be happier with our new home, and we can't do that without Andrew's great work, I would highly recommend Andrew as buying agent and would love to work with Andrew again on our next purchase.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in View Ridge, Seattle, WA.
I knew selling my late mother's house would be a challenge. It was a modest house in a great neighborhood with views of the Space Needle and downtown but had not been updated in the 47 years my mother had lived there. Choosing the right realtor who could show its potential and generate a lot of interest would be the key factor in having a successful sale. After interviewing several candidates I felt that Andrew was that person. His knowledge of the neighborhood, negotiating experience and background in construction was a definite plus.
After meeting with me several times to discuss strategy, Andrew created a marketing plan and timeline that would maximize exposure and encourage multiple offers, which was my goal. Andrew then executed his plan and after an extended showing period several strong offers were received, with the winning offer considerably higher than the listing price. Needless to say I was very pleased with the overall experience and outcome.
I would definitely recommend Andrew for anyone looking to sell their house, especially if it is a "diamond in the rough" as was my mother's.
Andrew helped me sell my existing home in conjunction with buying a new home.
Andrew's dedication and expertise in helping me find a home was beyond what words can describe. I am extremely happy with the home that I now inhabit and I doubt that many other agents could have guided me through the extremely aggressive Seattle real estate market to end up here.
It took me 9 months and multiple offers to eventually land a home. The process called upon many of Andrew's skills in property discovery, price negotiation, and structural assessment.
I've worked with professionals of many kinds in both my business and my home life, and I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew as a real estate agent. He is up to date on the latest technologies (which helped me get a jump on my current house a few hours before the competition). He has a unique ability to both understand my needs for a house but also help me consider a range of options for arriving at the kind of house that my family needed (buy, build, remodel).
In the end, I ended up at an extremely unique property with which I am extremely happy (new construction, built green, walkable, more bedrooms than I expected).
I highly recommend that you work with Andrew to purchase your next house.
When selling my existing home, Andrew was incredibly responsive to my needs and adjusted his target price to match my expectations for what my home was worth. It ended up selling for the higher amount and I'm happy with how it turned out.
Andrew's background education in construction came into play when we made a few last minute enhancements to the house, not to mention his abilities in coordinating top notch staging and photography.
Overall, I highly recommend Andrew for anyone who needs to buy or sell a house.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in View Ridge, Seattle, WA.
We recently contacted Andrew Schein to list our condo. He did a great job in promoting and selling in a short time. He also assisted us in buying a house. His honesty and knowledge put us a ease and he was there every step of the way keeping us updated. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone who is getting ready to sell/buy property.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in North Beach, Seattle, WA.
As young first time home buyers, we were treading into unknown waters. Andrew was knowledgeable, patient, and above all else trustworthy. He answered every question we had, and was always very prompt with his replies. He was able to quickly ascertain our wants and needs in a prospective home and also has tremendous vision regarding the potential of a space. The entire process of searching for a buying a home can be very nerve-wracking but he made the entire process go by smoothly and was an excellent advocate for us during negotiations as well. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent of any kind.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Lynnwood, WA.
I thought Andrew did an amazing job throughout the process of looking for my new house. He was available when I requested him and was extremely knowledgeable when it came to my various questions as we went through the purchase. His expertise was greatly appreciated as he helped me get this house by outbidding 9 other people. Andrew also did an amazing job when I listed my condo. Throughout the entire listing process he was able to meet all of my expectations. I was able to get over my asking price and it was a seamless process once he was able to stage, list and come to a mutual agreement. He made it such an easy transition and I was never displaced while I continued to live in my condo. I will definitely go though him again when I'm looking for my next place.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Ballard, Seattle, WA.
My wife and I had an amazing home buying experience with Andrew. We were moving to Seattle without any local knowledge or references. I noted his positive reviews on Zillow and decided to give him a call. I’m sure glad I did. Andrew went above and beyond for us. We were out of town buyers and could only make it out to view properties on one particular weekend. He gave us his undivided attention and arranged for us to see a long list of properties. He was willing and able to adjust on the fly once we realized we didn’t like a particular neighborhood, even though the majority of the properties we had planned to see were located there. Andrew helped us construct a competitive offer, which was accepted for our perfect home. He managed to talk me out of offering too much which speaks to his honesty and integrity. Throughout the process he gave us sound advice and was always willing to tell us the pros and cons of each house or neighborhood. Overall, I never felt pressured. After we closed on the house, but before we could move to Seattle, Andrew arranged for a number of bids to refinish the floors and personally oversaw the work. I would recommend him as a real estate agent to family and friends without hesitation!
We have been working with Andrew a couple months as our "buyer's agent" as we looked for a new home in Seattle. He did a great job with setting up a regular MLS automatic search that was very helpful in finding good candidate homes for us.
We wound up finding a view home in Edmonds and Andrew helped in our offer strategy to negotiate a good price. He also facilitated some inspections and arranging a contractor to review a number of items so we had a good handle on the costs involved as we went the final negotiations post-inspection.
Andrew was always very responsive and very knowledgeable on the process and how to approach the negotiations very strategically. I would recommend Andrew for any real estate purchase you may be considering.
Showed home in 2013 in Greenwood, Seattle, WA 98103.
Andrew helped me in my house search while I am living abroad. He was able to setup tours when I visited Seattle and also did video tours when I was unable to view a home. He helped me understand the market and neighborhoods and even though I have put my house search on pause for now I would highly recommend him and will contact him when I am looking again. Thank you Andrew
Mr. Schein was patient and followed me around Seattle touring at least 50+ homes for the better part of a year, only putting in an offer on 3 properties; despite this, he was quick to respond and always excited to tour more.
Andrew, is very personable, he put me at ease throughout the whole process (my first home) and I never felt pressured, despite my foot dragging.
Though I only placed three offers, his expertise showed through in how we navigated completely different situations to the right outcome for me: a competitive house with 6 offers, out of country owners, and finally the late-season purchase of a home on the market only 2 weeks.
I couldn't be more content with the house I ended up with, zero buyers remorse, it's everything I wanted.
During the closing process, Andrew went above and beyond to get quotes from various contractors and even measure external building dimensions himself to help me sort out future possibilities for the house while staying within building code.
