Fredrick Wilber

Andrea is an amazing realtor. She knows how to explain things to people in a very efficient and kind manner. She is always willing to answer any questions. She is also helpful and willing to make suggestions. She even was able to arrange an extra viewing of the house we were at the time under contract, so my out-of-state family could view it. I really recommend working with Andrea.
