Hi, I’m Andrea Brittingham, local REALTOR®, coffee aficionado, lover of the Pacific Northwest, and honored to work with you! Real estate goes far beyond the transaction for me, as I believe the people at the heart are always the most important part of the process. I’ve been described to have a “warm cookies” type of personality, which enables me to be an empathetic, caring and kind person. Combine that with my abilities to be creative, organized and determined and I’ve found a career in real estate to be the perfect fit for me!
Previously, I owned a local photography business, Brittingham Photography, which specialized in high school senior portraits with an emphasis in uplifting and empowering young women. My clients benefitted from not only with beautiful photos, but a tailored experience to showcase their unique personalities.
I have also been the store manager of numerous Pet Pros through the years including: opening the Tacoma Pearl Street location, opening the Maple Valley location, relocating the Coal Creek location and serving as the active manager of the Lakeland Hills location. Pet Pros is one of the largest independently owned premium pet store chains in the Pacific Northwest. Their desire to be an essential pillar of the community saw me involved in many local events, including serving on the Maple Valley Chamber of Commerce as a representative for Pet Pros.
My experiences in such personal, small town businesses have further blossomed my love of interacting with people. My goal as your agent is to be your advocate, and help you achieve your dreams. The home buying and selling process can be exciting, but stressful at times, and I want to do everything in my power to make the process as smooth as possible.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two cats and our German Shorthaired Pointer mix dog at home in Orting, WA. We love to work on the garden we’re slowly redesigning and enjoying a drink together outside. Traveling Europe is one of my largest life goals and we’ve been to Ireland three times and hope to get over to Europe more regularly. Day tripping around Washington and Oregon is one of my favorite past times, especially if it involves a good latte and outdoor photo ops.
Q: What can clients expect when working with you? How do you typically communicate with them?
A: I’m a very communicative person and love to stay organized and on the same page with my clients and colleagues. I always welcome my clients to text, email or call and aim to always stay one step ahead. Everyone communicates differently, and I’m mindful of that, so we’ll make sure that’s addressed so you feel you’re best being supported.
Q: Why are you excited to join Windermere Professional Partners?
A: I believe that Windermere offers an unmatched professional process for both agents and their clients. The systems Windermere has created make communication, education and research open and easy. They strive to educate and support their agents so we can in turn do that to the best ability for our wonderful clients.
