During the past 17 years North Plains resident and native Andrea Johnson has helped hundreds of local families sell their homes. Andrea is a broker for Portland’s #1 real estate brokerage firm, RE/MAX equity group realtors. In fact, she has helped so many families buy and sell their homes that in 2008 she set an all time RE/MAX equity group record for closed listings. Her sales volume placed her in the top 1% nationally. Quite a feat for a gal from North Plains!
Andrea’s family has quite a history in the northwest. Her grandfather, DA Kent was a former mayor of North Plains. While her grandfather was running the community her grandmother, Flora Kent was busy opening a barber shop, becoming the first female barber in the state of Oregon.
Andrea takes a very committed approach to serving her clients interests. “Selling your home is a huge step in everyone’s lives. We take it very seriously. We have gotten so many wonderful referrals from our customers, it’s a real compliment to the work of our team,” said Andrea. Her team includes a “customer care manager” who works with the client on all details of the sale process and several listing specialists. In addition to the sales professionals the team also has many support personnel including accounting, administration and marketing. Of the many referrals that she has received she adds, “You only get the referrals if you exceed the customers expectations. We work to devise an individual strategy to sell each home as quickly as possible and for the maximum price.”
