- Based in Silver Spring, MD with a focus on Montgomery & Howard County Real Estate. Professional yet personal service with a commitment to excellence.
I am a Realtor® with passion and love what I do. I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of the home buying or selling process - from the initial meeting and helping you fine-tune your wish list to finding the perfect match, from assisting you with preparing your home for sale to marketing it and generating offers ... and to bringing every transaction to a successful close. There's not a moment more rewarding to me than seeing my clients all smiles at the closing table.
I have been a licensed Realtor® in the State of Maryland since 2004 and affiliated for the first four years with the local Prudential Franchise. In December of 2008 I found my professional home at Thompson Company Realtors. Being an avid supporter of locally owned businesses, Thompson Company Realtors fits my ideals perfectly. Established in 1946 it is one of the oldest independently owned Real Estate Companies in Montgomery County. Thompson Co. Realtors operates on a Client First Philosophy with an emphasis on quality over quantity. We never charge our buyers, sellers and tenants a transaction processing fee or "admin fee".
My business approach is personal yet professional. I strive to exceed expectations, to make your transaction my priority and to make the journey a pleasant one for everyone involved. Whether you are buying, selling or have/need a rental home, I promise to be there every step of the way.
I would love to be your Realtor of choice. I invite you to meet with me for a no-obligation meeting to discuss your Real Estate goals and how I can best assist you accomplish these.

"Andrea is awesome! I have worked with her on three different transactions since 2005. I have also worked with other Realtors in other geographies and can say that she is the best I've ever had. I define a great Realtor as a person who is (1) professional -- knowledgeably about the market and maintains a network to tab to overcome new experiences/questions; (2) creative -- thinks on their feet to get the deal done and (3) responsive -- respects my time and operates with a sense of urgency and enthusiasm. Andrea has demonstrated all of these qualities and more. I also would like to note that I have always had the sense that Andrea is looking out for my best interest." E. Smith, Buyer, Montgomery County, 2005
"It became quite clear that her goal was not to simply sell me a home, but to help me find a home that would make me truly happy. This was truly the opportunity of a lifetime, and would not have been possible without Andrea. Her hard work and dedication to her clients are her strongest traits. She will not allow you to settle for a home that is not right, but will work to find the one that is truly right for you. Anyone who chooses to work with Andrea is making the smart choice, the correct one." G. Bannerman, buyer, Montgomery County, 2007
"Andrea is the ideal mix of consummate professional and sensitive problem solver. The needs of her clients are obviously her top priority, and this shines through in every facet of the real estate buying or selling process. My standards are high, and Andrea meets and exceeds them all. Andrea has both my personal and my professional recommendation, and any client lucky enough to work with her can count on a positive experience! We need more like her!" A. Cabrera, seller, Montgomery County, 2007
"I was thoroughly impressed with Andrea's professional yet personal approach to helping with the home-buying process. She's thorough and organized and completely in-tune to her clients' wishes and needs. I simply cannot say enough to fully reflect the five-star service she provides." J. Stolley, buyer, Howard County, 2011
"Andrea is an excellent realtor. She helped me purchase my first home recently which was a short sale. After 2 failed attemps with other realtors, I was referred to Andrea and she was able to make my home buying dream come true. She is knowledgeable, professional, diligent and just an overall wonderful indivdual. Andrea works hard for her clients. I would definelty work with her in the future and refer her to anyone I know that is looking for a house." J. Woodley, buyer, Prince Georges County, 2012
