A Team Properties powered by Keller Williams North Shore West
When Andrea Sullivan and Cindy Andrzejewski met, they clicked instantly. They share a common passion for creating the best real estate service possible and have set out to do just that!
Sullivan got her start in realty as a closing coordinator, and Andrzejewski as a buyer’s agent. They’re now co-owners of A Team Properties of Keller Williams North Shore West in Libertyville, and have closed more than 107 homes in their first year as a team, from Chicago to southern Wisconsin.
“In our first year, we ranked as the No. 1 team in our market center and received three regional awards for units closed, volume and GCI,” they say. “It’s incredible that we get to wake up every day to a job we absolutely love, we wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
It also helps that Sullivan is a stager. “We are able to walk into listing appointments and make a big impact with suggestions about décor to homes and current trends,” they say. “If the home looks better, the photos will be better, and photos make all the difference today.”
Their proudest moments this year came after hiring “the rock star of all assistants,” Denise, and helping a client sell a home that was previously listed by three other Realtors for more than five years. “We were able to navigate our sellers to an accepted contract within weeks,” Sullivan and Andrzejewski say. “It was a joy to help serve this couple, who was living in limbo for many years, wondering if their house would ever sell. To be able to invite them to their next chapter, well, that was just absolutely heartwarming.”
Understandably, they have become the team that others in the area look to for marketing advice or mastermind sessions. “We love education and learning more every day,” they say. “Knowledge is so very important in this evolving industry. You have to stay current.”
Every two weeks, they read a new book as a team to keep improving and moving toward the bigger picture.
“We put our heart and soul into each client, every time,” they say. “We’re genuinely different from most teams, we have this added sizzle that makes us so unique!”
Fond of animals, they fundraise and gather supplies for three different animal shelters and rescues. They also volunteer at pet adoption events, food drives and natural disaster relief missions.
