Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Indian River, MI.
Our experience with Billy Andrew was excellent. He was incredibly helpful through each step of the purchase process. He went out of his way (sometimes far out of his way) to be absolutely sure that we were satisfied.
Our situation was a little unique. We first contacted Billy in October 2013 regarding a listing in which we were interested. However a personal situation that cropped up at the time kept us from moving forward. We fell out of touch for a few months and by the time we were back in the market the home we wanted had been taken off the market for the winter.
Billy kept in touch with us through the winter months and made sure that we were the first to see the house in the spring. Ultimately we did purchase the home and Billy helped us through each step of the closing.
Over the years we have purchased several properties and our experience with Billy was better than any we've had before. His level of service and devotion to complete customer satisfaction is second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.
Billy provided timely and appropriate information during the sale of our parent's home. He was very helpful in keeping the process moving and keeping us informed of progress and issues that needed to be resolved.

I was very impressed with Mr. Andrew - he always had a great demeanor, listened to what I was requesting and he showed me places that had the items I was looking for. He responded quickly to telephone calls and he was available after typical working hours and he responded to text and e-mail messages. I would also like to say that I found him to be patient and willing to take the time needed to properly view homes. I definately recommend Billy Andrew.

Billy was wonderful to work with. His local knowledge and contacts made our experience incredibly easy. He is personable and professional, and it is clear that he is respected and liked in the Northern Michigan area.
Billy knows Burt Lake properties very well. Mullett too. He showed me things of interest and didn't waste my time with things outside what I explained I was interested in considering. Very efficient at responding via e-mail. He always kept me informed of properties that became available and was never overbearing. He gave me just the right amount of information and space. His opinions were balanced and he gave me several thought provoking ideas I hadn't considered. He knows which areas of the lake are very social in nature and which are more reserved/quiet. He explained advantages/disadvantages of being on the East -vs- West sides etc...
Billy is a professional with a local flare. He was a pleasure to work with, responsive, and made purchasing real estate from a distance much easier. The best endorsement we can give is that we will use him again for our next purchase.

Billy is simply the best around! I stopped into his office on a whim one day with no appointment. He sat down with me for about an hour and answered a bunch of questions I had about the area and the process of buying a second home or vacant land. He then pulled up a few places that I might be interested in and gave me the history on them. The next time i came up we looked at places. After I decided to buy, Billy got me a great price on the property and then got me in contact with the local lenders in the area to work on financing. He completed everything quickly and we closed on the property very fast. Since then, Billy has got me in contact with someone about a boat lift and has provided me with some other advice on a couple of things. He knows the area and people very well and has a lot of contacts, which is a huge advantage!

When purchasing a home it is imperative that the agent has a solid understanding of the local area and Billy delivers in all facets on northern Michigan real estate. Our purchase was on Burt lake and it was very clear early on that Billy not only knew the lake very well he knows the majority of the people that own homes on it. From there in a very low pressure / no pressure fashion he was able to determine what was best for our family in purchasing a home. For Billy it wasn't about selling us a home, but more about the experience our family would have in our new vacation home.
Before we met Billy, we felt we were a few years from being able to find an "up north" property for our family. We had been vacationing in the area for ten years and had wanted to one day purchase a place of our own. When we met Billy, he listened to us and showed us a variety of properties. He helped us understand what type of property would suit our family best. His knowledge of the area, the real estate market, and the transaction process is deep. We had complete confidence we made the right choice when it was time to buy, and Billy kept us informed every step of the way. I was particularly impressed with his use of technology in facilitating the purchase and necessary paperwork. This was extremely helpful to us since we live a few hours away and he enabled us to handle the transaction easily with the use of technology.
We recommend Billy without reservation to either a buyer or seller. If you want a place up north that will suit you, the first call to make is to Billy Andrew.

My husband and I have had the opportunity to work with Billy on several occasions. He consistently demonstrates the qualities we look for in an agent - responsive, knowledgeable, low pressure and follows through. We would not hesitate to recommend Billy to anybody looking to purchase property in our area.
