New Client Review!

The words of my clients are the very best advertisement and endorsement of my work as a Realtor, Licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, specializing in Historic, Waterfront, Unique and Equestrian Properties in Virginia.  I was delighted to receive this endorsement and reference today!  It has been my pleasure and honor to work with Lewis and Kathryn!

Karin, I offered to do a testimonial/recommendation for your website (or any other use you like), happy to do so and here goes: In 2016 my wife and I decided to place our historic Tidewater Virginia home on the market. After interviewing multiple other realtors, we chose Karin Andrews as the best choice for our particular situation: the challenge of marketing a unique home, our desire for broader marketing beyond our region and state, and the ability through words, images, design, and inspiration, to communicate a special message. Karin spent time to develop a targeted marketing campaign, wrote lyrical and effective copy, took and arranged glorious photographs, arranged a flawless drone-video shoot, and created lovely products – all reflecting the special history and beauty of our place. Her management of the visits and showings with prospective buyers was top-notch, as was her use of online media and social networks to spread the word. We were very happy with our choice of Karin Andrews and recommend her highly to others looking for the best.

Ben Lomond Essex County Virginia Circa 1735 – A Buyer’s Perspective

Recently, I received this beautiful recommendation from Craig and Zorine Shirley, who purchased Ben Lomond in Essex County, Virginia in the 4th quarter of 2014.  It is in the Top 10 of all property sales, in 2014 in the Middle Peninsula Region.  I represented the Sellers but have loved getting to know the buyers, Craig and Zorine. They have become cherished friends and are a dynamic couple, who will be amazing stewards of this crown jewel estate on the Upper Middle Peninsula of Virginia. The following is what they have written about me, which means so much on a professional and personal level.  This is who I am.

“Karin Andrews is unlike any realtor we’ve ever worked with before. What started out as a professional relationship quickly became a warm friendship. A kind and thoughtful woman, she is a person of remarkable talents who enthralled us with her working knowledge of Ben Lomond and all of Essex County. She is, in the words of the Old South, a truly Great Lady.”
