We bought and sold our house with Andrea. She is an expert and really knows how to help negotiate the best deal, get your house sell-ready, and is a joy to work with. We are very grateful for her!
I first met Andrea 2 years ago when relocating from east coast. I had 1 week to see homes and get into contract. Andrea made it happen. Last week we closed on our 2nd home!! Andrea is absolutely THE BEST agent I’ve ever had!! She navigates every detail and has her client’s best interest at every twist and turn. Our new home was also a VA loan, our dream home! So grateful Andrea worked her magic on a 2nd tier VA loan available to us!!! I highly recommend her!!
Andrea Ridgway helped our family find a beautiful home during a relocation process, with most of our communication together being from several miles apart. She was very responsive and attentive, and did several facetime tours of homes for us when we couldn't be there in person. As we are new to the area, her advice regarding neighborhoods was invaluable. Andrea helped make our closing stream-lined so that we were able to move right in when we arrived in town. We are very pleased with our new home, and feel very fortunate to have found Andrea Ridgway. I would highly recommend her expertise in helping buy and sell homes in the Waco area.
Andrea was so great!! She really went above and beyond for us. We had trouble with the first house we went in contract on and got kind of discouraged after it fell through. But she kept us optimistic! It was a long process but we finally found the perfect house for our first home with her help. We highly recommend her!
We loved working with Andrea! She took time to figure out what we liked and helped us find that in a home. It was our first time buying a home and she walked us through the whole process making it a very easy process for us. We're grateful to have worked with her!
Andrea was alwas readily available whenever we would come in to town. She helped us with many things outside of just the homes she showed us. She was very well informed on Woodway area.
I moved from out of state and Andrea was very helpful. She kept me updated with new listings that she thought that I might be interested in but also did not send me an overwhelming amount. Once my son and I visited Waco and were able to meet with her to view homes, she seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. She was very patient with me when I had to put my home search on hold for a few months but stayed in touch and reminded me when I needed to resume my search. She was very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating when it came time to close and reminded me (after closing) to file my Homestead exemption when the time came. Andrea is an excellent real estate agent.
Andrea was very helpful in a somewhat complex sale where buyer and seller struggled to agree on close date. Price was settled rather quickly and we received a fair price but sale date required a lot of effort on her part making sure all the funds were in the right place at the right time to allow timely sale and close on our new home.
Great to work with helped us a lot with prep and staging. Generally a very nice person and someone you can trust with the proper sale of large asset.
thanks for all you do.........Read Full Review
Andrea was wonderful, she not only helped us on knowledge of market and local schools, but extra things like kids activities, medical facilities, local attractions. She was also very accommodating of our needs with kids and crazy schedules.
It was a pleasure working with Andrea on finding my new house.
Worked hard on my behalf and would highly recommend. Was knowledgeable of the various areas of the city and the home buying process. Closing was expedited and her effort made that happen.
I was assigned to Andrea during a relocation for work and I have been exceedingly happy with her services. Andrea took the time to get to know us and understand the stark contrast between our unique taste and somehow we managed to find a house that met most of our wants, in a tough real estate market. Andrea has a heart of gold and wants the best for her clients. I couldn’t be happier with a realtor!
Andrea did a fantastic job selling our home! She was very helpful with home decoration/arrangement, photos of the property, advertising, and promptly responded to my phone calls and texts.
Andrea is a thoughtful, delightful, and energetic realtor. She was always available for us day or night. She was highly knowledgeable about the local area and thorough in researching appropriate values for our home. She was responsive in both finding a house for us and helping us sell it later. She is outstanding and I highly recommend her as a realtor.
My wife and I first did business with Andrea in 2015 while looking to purchase a home in Robinson and then again when we sold that home this year and purchased a new home. When we listed this year Andrea researched the market and got us more for our home than we thought possible. We had a full asking price offer within a day after listing. We hadn't planned on having our home sold that quickly and were a bit stressed about finding a new home in a such a short time. Andrea made the process very easy and was able to find us a beautiful home well within our budget and in a great neighborhood. We highly recommend her and we won't consider using anyone else.
Andrea was great to work with. We are new to the area and she was very knowledgeable of all the neighborhoods in town. She's dependable and went above and beyond for us through the negotiation process. As long as we live in the area, we will use Andrea for any and all Real Estate needs.
Andrea was incredible helping my fiance and I find a house in Waco. We have been here for about 6 months and helped us not only find a house but helped up with every detail along the way. She was great helping us get and facilitate quotes for work needed on the house. I do not have enough good things to say about her.
Andrea was my "go to" person all throughout my home buying experience. She went to bat for me during the negotiation process and thus I was able to receive everything that I had asked for. I am very happy with my home and a very large part of that is how well Andrea communicated with me. Thanks for all that you have done for me!
Very knowledgeable and always available and response time calling back always fast. Very good in helping negotiate between us and any offers that we received from other realators.
If you're looking for an amazing realtor in this crazy housing market, Andrea is the one to have! She came recommended to us, and she did not disappoint. As first time home buyers, she was so patient with us and explained all the details of the process. She walked us through step by step from narrowing down houses to see to the big closing day. She always made sure we were happy and comfortable, and was always available for communication. She is very knowledgeable and has great contacts in the area. There are not enough good things to say about Andrea. She is wonderful and we are so lucky to have had her as our realtor. We are loving our new home and are so thankful for all of her hard work to get us here.
Andrea was very patient as we looked at houses with her for almost 6 months due to us not wanting to purchase right away. She listened to what we wanted and with each house she showed us she showed us exactly what we wanted. Andrea has excellent contacts in the community to help with inspections, pools, repairs, etc. She had a number of names we could use and contact. Andrea was always on time and very responsive to our needs. I highly recommend Andrea for anyone buying a home.
Andrea is a local real estate agent whose personality, expertise, and know-how of the area's market combine to make her one of Waco's finest real estate agents. We talked to a couple of real estate agents, but we were not interested in getting serious with the property search until we met Andrea. A couple of our friends in town new her as a respected real estate agent too, when we mentioned we were going through her. She showed us possibilities and was very patient and thorough in explaining the process when we decided to move forward on the property we fell in love with. Everything ran smoothly and better than hoped because of her advice.
Andrea Ridgway was very perceptive to ascertain our requirements and aesthetics and was proactive in notifying us of new listings that were of interest to us. She was readily available and quick to respond to our inquiries and from contract to closing we were kept apprised of the process. Her local knowledge of the neighborhoods and builders was of great benefit to us as we were new to the area. The Waco real estate market was very active and she was instrumental in assisting us to find the right home.
Andrea had a great knowledge of the area and secured a buyer within 2 weeks. However, they backed out just before the option period. Andrea then called her contacts who had expressed interest and secured another buyer almost immediately. We had a successful sale.
Andrea was with us all through the process, kept us updated, and calmed our nerves when the first buyer backed out. We would recommend her to anyone and, if we move back to Waco, would use her again.
Andrea is a wonderful and knowledgeable real estate agent - she is a true professional. We moved to the area the day before closing, and as such, conducted all our house/mortgage shopping via phone and email, except for a few short weekend trips. Andrea welcomed us to the area, and not only provided candid commentary regarding the real estate market and quality of neighborhoods/builders, but also gave recommendations for restaurants, day trips, and run/bike routes.
Andrea's knowledge of the market and the personalities associated with buying/selling a home in the Waco area led to a streamlined and simple home buying process. If she did not know the answer to a question, she could quickly locate the answer, usually only a phone call away. This real-time feedback allowed us to negotiate a fast moving market, and make a strong and reasonable offer on our house.
Ultimately, Andrea is everything you look for in a real estate agent. She is knowledgable, responsive, and professional, while being realistic and candid in her communication. I highly recommend anyone moving to, or relocating within the area to choose Andrea Ridgway as their buying or selling agent!
Andrea was so helpful. She listened and understood what I was looking for. She did not waste my time with houses that were not a good fit for our family. With her help we were able to quickly find a home we love.
Andrea went above and beyond what has been our past experiences with real estate agents. As this is our fifth Home we were impressed with both Andrea's "Hustle" and knowledge of all the properties we wanted her to set up for us to see…..The third time was the charm and we closed on the third house she showed us….
Andrew Ridgeway completed every step for us all the way to the end which made it so easy for us. Every question i had she gave an exact answer to what I was a asking. She was always on time for showings/texting and emails with updates on process and paperwork. I would highly recommend her if your looking for a Realator who knows what their doing.
Andrea was GREAT!! She was very friendly and helpful and stayed in contact through the entire process. She went above and beyond for us and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!!
My recently-widowed brother from out of state asked for my help in finding a house here. I was nervous at first because he did not plan to come himself; he was totally relying on me and would buy sight-unseen. In my research, I found that Andrea had a significant number of sales in the past year so I chose her and I'm so glad I did. I sent her my brother's list of likes and dislikes, and she promptly began searching. She found two listings right away that fit his specifications. The first listing had several issues, and she advised us to offer a much lower price than listed. The second house looked promising, and she advised us to make an offer because it would sell quickly. Sure enough, we made an offer along with three other people the same day. With her expert assistance, our offer was accepted. I believe Andrea was the key in guiding us through the complicated process of closing the transaction with an out-of-state buyer. I would highly recommend Andrea for any real estate transaction. She was professional, friendly, and most of all, trustworthy.
Andrea took us around to look at homes in many areas around Waco , very knowledgeable of the area, took time to understand what type property we where looking for and what would fit our needs. Helped us find the perfect home and location that fit our needs perfectly.
Andrea is the most amazing person and real estate agent in the whole world! She sold one of my investment properties in just a few mere days, and at a price higher than my expectations. What a wonderful experience and awesome individual to have on your side. She comes highly regarded, and she is the premier agent that I would use without question on my future buying and selling opportunities.
The lender referred me to Andrea, but I was a little hesitant to call at first because of my past experience with a realtor at Coldwell banker in another city. I called anyway because we really needed to move here to Waco. I'm really glad I called her.
She was very helpful and kind to us. She helped us anyway she could when we had any questions or requests. She took time out to show us houses that have what we were looking for. She even helped at 10 o'clock at night. Overall, I was really happy with her service. I recommend her to anyone I know that is looking to buy or sell a house.
My partner and I were in need of a realtor that knew the area and Andrea came highly recommended from our realtor in Alb. Andrea has been in constant contact with us, sending various types of houses in different locations throughout Waco. Once the job offer was accepted we were asking Andrea to meet with us within the week, which she readily accepted. She met with my partner, spent the entire day with her and found us the perfect house! She has been amazing to work with, understanding and very professional. We will work with her again when we decide to sell.
Andrea was extremely helpful in our move to a city we had no prior connection to. She was ready and willing to show us houses on weekends as that was the only time we had available to get to Waco. She went above and beyond to find us the perfect house and walked us through every step of the process. She answered our questions timely and was always available to us.
We had a limited amount of time to find a home with no local knowledge. Andrea was able to handle our time constraints perfectly, and quickly recognized what we liked in a home. She was exceptionally well prepared, and our scheduling did not present a problem. We closed on a great home in a wonderful neighborhood that could have easily been overlooked. We are very pleased and would recommend Andrea to others without hesitation.
Andrea, This is the most amazing woman in the world. She has an unbelievable talent for fashion, design, taste, and good hearted living. I don't know of anyone who is more knowledgeable of the area. She will listen to your desires and find your dreams. I highly recommend Andrea Ridgway as your most trusted professional real estate agent.
Andrea was very helpful in identifying and responding to my wants and needs for my new home. She was always very polite and helpful too. She helped me through many complex negotiations and explained many new concepts to me, as it was my first home buying experience. Whenever any issues arose, she was able to walk me through next steps, and help me figure things out. I was very lucky to have her during this experience.
Our first contact with Andrea Ridgway was from San Diego when contemplating a move to the Waco Area. Andrea was very pleasant, friendly and happy to answer all our questions. We then planned a vacation to investigate Waco and the Real Estate Market. Upon our visit, Andrea showed us an array of homes and areas which was extremely helpful. We decided to make our move to Waco and Andrea was there every step of the way. She went above and beyond her responsibilities as a Real Estate Broker. Not only is she very knowledgeable but she was always available day or night with assistants or questions we had. I am Happy to say, Andrea found us a beautiful home we are now living in thanks to all her hard work and time. We definitely recommend Andrea!!
Andrea went out of her way to familiarize us with the home buying process, as well as the area. She was extremely accommodating to our schedules - including showings on weekends and after hours. We must have seen at least 30 homes and she was delightful and accommodating every time. She was honest about her professional opinion about the properties and she never led us astray. We love our new home and it wouldn't have happened without her. Thank you Andrea!
We moved from out of state and Andrea worked diligently to get us acquainted to the local housing market. She accommodated our busy schedules to show us many houses in the surrounding area that met our key targets in a home. After we went under contract on a home, Andrea assisted in the negotiation process and worked out the details. Overall we are very pleased with our experience and would recommend Andrea to a neighbor or friend looking to buy a home.
We trusted in Andrea's experience and she came through with a home and service that is unmatched in my opinion. Andrea knew the right resources to thoroughly inspect and test our home and system which gave our family great peace of mind. We continue to contact Andrea as a friend because she is always willing to help, even after the sale.
Andrea helped my wife and I buy our dream home. She was very prompt with updates to new listings and was usually available at a time convenient to us.
She was so helpful, in fact, that she is selling our current home, which may go in record time.
Andrea just sold our home after showing it only twice! She was very professional and would respond quickly to all questions throughout the selling process. In fact our home sold so quickly she helped us find temporary living accommodations that met all our needs. The whole process went smoothly and we would definitely recommend her.
Andrea helped me with selling my mother's home. Andrea stuck with me through all the renovations which took several months. She always followed up and was very responsive to my questions. We had an offer within the first 24 hours of listing! I would recommend Andrea to anyone looking for an agent!
Andrea has a wonderful personality and is easy to get along with. She is very knowledgeable about Waco and the surrounding areas. We found the perfect home to fit our needs because she picked up quickly on what we were looking for. She is a skilled negotiator and worked hard to get us what we needed in terms of the sale. We were very pleased with her work and highly recommend Andrea to anyone looking to buy a home in the Waco and surrounding areas.
Andrea treated my wife and I with an incredible amount of patience and responsiveness to our needs. She tirelessly found new options for us until I realized that we needed to buy the house my wife wanted.
Andrea was wonderful to work with. She was very patient and supportive during the home selling experience. We had to move before our home was sold and she went above and beyond by meeting contractors and service people at the house when we had work done. She made wonderful suggestions for our home showings and kept us informed of activity going on in the area. Andrea also introduced us to a stager who was able to help with decorative ideas and updates on the house that led us to selling it. We were so happy to have our house sold but sad that we would not be working with Andrea anymore!
Everyone knows that hunting for the house that fits you perfectly is challenging. Add two young children and limited time to the challenge! Andrea Ridgeway was amazing! She went above and beyond to help find our home. Multiple homes, weekends, and last minute showings. She did it all! Thanks so much Andrea! Our home is a perfect fit!
Not only did Andrea help us to locate a perfect house for our family, she was quick to help us become part of the community by taking time to introduce us to neighbors and give us references for local businesses. She really helped make our relocation a smooth process!
We lived in a rural residential area where homes often take several months to sell. Needing to downsize rather rapidly, we chose to list our home with Andrea because of her knowledge of the area. It proved to be a wise decision! We had a contract on our home in the first week and sold it to the first family that looked at it. We closed 30 days later at a sale price which was $25 a square foot more than what another of the area's leading realtors had estimated we could make.
Andrea's service and support did not stop with the sale of our home. Despite an extreme shortage of homes in the area where we wanted to move, Andrea found us the perfect new home. We were able to buy it the second day it came on the market ... and at a price slightly below that which the seller was asking.
The purchase our new home required funds from the sale of of our current home, which was contingent on the sale of the buyers home. This required three closings and the transfer of all funds within a few hours of each transaction. Working with two other realtors and three title companies, Andrea made it possible that we moved out of our previous home at 1:30 in the afternoon and took occupanncy of our new home by 5:00 that same day ... a speed that even amazed the title companies.
Andrea's skills and responses to our needs make it easy to highly recommend her for either the sale or purchase of a home!
