what they say

and she enjoys incredible loyalty in a competitive field. Here’s why:
To anyone and everyone, Andrea Korchek is the best realtor on the face of the planet. In 2008 we bought a large, beautiful dream home in Encino. Andrea represented the sellers. She was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, enthusiastic, and a tough negotiator during our purchase. - Melissa Tufeld Gerber read more »
I promised to connect you with by far the best realtor John and I have ever worked with – Andrea Korchek – We know a lot of realtors, but Andrea just wowed us. She didn't push, just kept bringing to our attention over a period of six months great properties in our price range. - Kimberly Marteau Emerson read more »
I can’t speak too strongly about how impressed and happy I have been working with Andrea and having her represent my projects. As a professional builder and developer, I have the benefit of having worked with many agents, brokers and agencies over the past 25 years, so to that extent, my opinion is somewhat educated. And Andrea stands out…way out… from those I have come across. Andrea is a rare talent. She brings intelligence, charm, competence and resourcefulness to her work. Her “we can get this done” attitude is real and legitimate. - Michael Walker (Builder) read more »
Through the years I have had the good fortune to buy and sell several properties throughout the San Fernando Valley and greater Los Angeles area. I have worked with numerous Realtors but I can honestly say Andrea Korchek is simply light years beyond the rest. As a former executive with Warner Bros. music, I’ve learned first hand what it takes to be a successful negotiator and to be a “deal closer” rather than a “deal breaker.” Andrea is a closer! What truly separates Andrea from the pack is her unique ability to understand the complicated and personal needs of both buyer and seller. She closes the deal without compromising either. - Rick Shoemaker read more »
Andrea’s artistic eye and organizational skills combine to produce a captivating and effective marketing plan.

As technology keeps advancing, the way a buyer finds a home is ever-changing. “Today buyers spend hours in the comfort of their own home or office pouring over photographs of intriguing properties; as they look, they are deciding which properties to actually see.
Knowing that my listings are exposed to the broadest local and international audiences, I am committed to perfecting the quality of each image.” Hands on, Andrea is present when photographs are taken, calling out shots and staging rooms. “I understand that a strong marketing campaign begins and ends with photography -- whether that be still photography, drone photography, aerial photography, or 3D home tours. I make sure that my listings are visually compelling, so that passive browsing and ‘viewing’ becomes a scheduled showing. The way I present my listings is a reflection of me, and I will settle for nothing but the best.”
Andrea is also able to reach buyers through the The Agency’s unique, collaborative culture, resulting in a huge percentage of deals taking place “in house”. Physically growing everyday, The Agency now operates out of offices throughout the greater Los Angeles, originating with the Beverly Hills flagship and extending to Brentwood, Venice, Sherman Oaks, Calabasas, Malibu.
“I have always been a strong believer in marketing my Valley listings to Westside buyers and agents. Joining this progressive, collaborative and impressive group of top-producing agents allows me to even better serve those clients, as I network with all of our agents throughout the greater Los Angeles.”
With great relationships throughout the real estate community, Andrea is a member of various top-agent networking groups, keeping her listings “front and center” in the real estate community, and showcasing them regularly to her many esteemed contacts and "friends".
"In this global marketplace, Andrea has reached buyers across the world and sold property "sight unseen." With The Agency’s exclusive partnership with Savills, the largest luxury real estate firm in the world, she is able to tap into valuable resources and promote her listings in faraway territories—a great advantage as international presence in the home buying marketplace continues to grow."
“Being at The Agency is a huge catalyst to international exposure. The Agency is crisp and focused, and has thoughtfully partnered with the most significant real-estate focused websites in the world, making a mark globally, commanding attention and bringing buyers to all of The Agency’s advertised properties.”
