Real estate specialist Andrea Yarrington is a virtual wealth of knowledge on not only market trends and conditions affecting brownstone Brooklyn, but on the evolution of its neighborhoods, the history of the buildings, even the layouts of the apartments. Andrea understands the building and renovation processes as intimately as she does an intricate purchase and sales transaction. As an investor and landlord, she is as highly qualified as she is enthusiastic to guide clients to the right property, and to negotiate best deal possible.
Andrea moved to the Upper West Side from the west coast in 1982. She enjoyed a highly successful career in Manhattan as a designer of textiles and men's clothing for some of the biggest names in the home furnishings and menswear businesses. Her aesthetic eye and creative problem solving capability - coupled with the sharp managerial and the negotiating skills she honed while manufactoring multi-million-dollar programs internationally - set the stage for her natural transition into real estate. She crossed the bridge to Brooklyn in 1997 and purchased a home in Park Slope where she still resides with her husband and son. In speaking of her real estate experience, Andrea equates renovating that brownstone to being "graduate school for a real estate broker". She learned the intricacies of the process, from choosing the contractors to deciding which paint colors, and the myriad of details in between. Buyers rely on this always-helpful, full-service broker's expertise and resources for every facet of their home purchase from first meeting to closing and beyond.
Owners and sellers also appreciate Andrea's expert staging, marketing and negotiating skills to obtain the highest exposure and price for their property. Andrea is as active in her community as she is in her real estate work. At her son's school in Fort Greene, Brooklyn Tech, she is an executive board member of the PTA and volunteers on variuos committes. She is active in Prospect Park, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden as well as maintaining ties with many of the other Brooklyn civic organizations. When she is not in Brooklyn, Andrea is a passionate traveler, an aspiring surfer, and enjoys playing tennis.
