Andrew Schein

Bio.

I was born and raised in Seattle and have watched our neighborhoods transform with vibrant new life over the years. I hold degrees from the University of Washington in Architecture and Construction Management, and spent years working in high-end residential construction. This foundation in design and construction helps me serve the diverse needs of each real estate client. When I am not working with clients I enjoy hiking, cycling, sailing, and helping with a non-profit that builds homes and promotes education in Tijuana, Mexico.

Philosophy.

It is my desire to enable your goals to be met in each transaction. I first listen to your priorities, and then work collaboratively to set a plan in motion. Today, real estate data is readily available to the public, but it takes someone with an experienced perspective to understand what this data means when it comes to living in a space. My background in architecture and high-end residential construction enables me to help you interpret this data and make spaces come alive.

Andrew was a true professional, from our first meeting through to getting the keys. He listened to our wishlist and helped us build it out based on the (many) properties we viewed. His experience in construction and eye for design also were invaluable in identifying not only what each house was, but what it could be. He took time to get to really understand our preferences, recommending and encouraging us in going through many different houses and house types and tracking our preferences beyond what we would have identified ourselves. This made identifying "the" house an intuitive and easy decision.
