Andrea Shink sold her first home at age 11—an unlisted pocket deal she discovered while babysitting and convinced her first-ever client (her mother) to buy off-market. Fast-forward to today and she’s closed nearly $450 million in real estate sales.
Now joined in business by her daughter Kayla Shink, who provides critical administrative support and is essential for making certain all transactions proceed efficiently and effectively, Andrea and Kayla are able to offer their clients an outstanding, yet personalized service.
Both longtime Westsiders who’ve lived in Beverlywood for nearly two decades, the mother-daughter duo are known for their thorough and thoughtful process, straight talk and the fierce loyalty they extend to their clients. Andrea has handled many renovations personally and has an intimate understanding of the construction, design and landscaping processes, making her a valued advisor for buyers and sellers alike. Those skills, plus her expertise in divorce real estate cases and trust and probate properties (and her adept management of the additional needs associated with each), have led to a wide network of clients who seek her out for her problem-solving abilities, ethics, fairness and absolute discretion. Andrea’s background in advertising—she’s an 11-year veteran of the fast-paced industry—has also given her a deep understanding of the power of innovative marketing, while Kayla brings her youthful energy and input to marketing and social media efforts among her other administrative duties, as well as serving home Buyers.Testimonials Let's Connect
