BIO/ PHILOSOPHY

From starting my career as a CPA in Austin and then returning after 20 years in Houston to raise my children here, I feel truly blessed to work, live, and play in this amazing city. As a realtor and real-estate investor in Austin for the past 10 years, the dramatic growth has created opportunities every year and I don't see that trend reversing any time soon as the population growth continues to explode. For clients looking to buy a home or to invest in property in the Austin area, timing and bid strategy are king. Finding properties before they hit the MLS is part of the story. But, understanding the underlying value drivers are more critical: price range, location, school district, current and future traffic flow, and how other bidders behave. For clients selling their home, timing and helping generate as many competing offers as possible are key. Remember, there isn't much of an incentive for a typical realtor to get that last $20-30K of value from a commissions perspective, but it makes all the difference in the world to investors and home sellers. I've learned this first hand from my investor clients and my own investments. Creating maximum value is my top priority. That first offer is only the starting point to get the maximum value for your property. So, whether you are a buyer moving the Austin to live, work and play or a seller trying to create the best rate of return, I'm ready to help you achieve your business and personal objectives.

"Andrea was not only a class-act, but a pleasure to work with. I had a really fun experience! ?Wish I had more properties to sell"

  -Monika G., Client

"We worked with Andrea McShane who was simply fabulous. This was our first home buying experience and she exceeded every expectation. Incredibly patient through the shopping process but then able to jump on a house we loved within a day of the listing. Fantastic at communicating, even during nights and weekends, which we appreciated immensely. I hope I won’t be buying another house soon, but will definitely recommend her to friends and would want to work with her again in an instant. She was wonderful."

  -Blair & Andrew, Client

"It was our good fortune that Andrea came into our lives through a chance meeting. She became not only our Realtor, but our friend. Because of Andrea, our desire to move from our long-time home in Richmond, VA to the Austin area became a reality. We are blessed with three young beautiful grandchildren, and it was our hearts’ desire to watch them grow up. Because of the distance, we trusted Andrea to select our lot to build our home in a brand new planned community in Leander. She held our hands through the process and we are not just a six-mile drive from our grandkids. Thank you Andrea for being our Realtor and our lifetime friend."

  -Len & Nancy Varmette, Client

"Andrea has a keen attention to detail and is responsive when we need her.  There were many times we sought advisement from Andrea and she consistently provided perspectives that were honest, professional and spot on.  She is a guiding light throughout the process.  She is a problem solver during tough times.  She is our trusted advisor that we can depend on.  Even now, we keep in touch with Andrea because she is someone we will continue to trust and respect long after the transaction is over."
