After working as a successful lawyer, Realtor Andrea Korchek transitioned to the field of real estate 18 years ago and has specialized in selling luxury Los Angeles real estate with The Agency for nearly two years. Andrea has three grown children—two of whom are Type 1 diabetics. Finding a cure for juvenile diabetes is a cause she is passionate about; she and her family team recently raised more than $20,000 at a local fundraiser.
How do you stay competitive in your industry?
“I am energetic and enthusiastic and will stop at nothing to be the best. I also have a unique set of skills that contribute to my success. On the deal-making side, my past experience as a business litigation attorney makes me an at-ease, effective negotiator and proficient in drafting and interpreting contracts. I avoid problems because I foresee them. On the marketing side, I have a trained eye in design and an eagerness to exploit the latest technologies and platforms, implementing a beautiful and robust marketing plan with maximum local and international exposure for each of my properties. I have great relationships with my colleagues and can use those relationships to achieve my clients’ objectives. I work tirelessly to obtain the highest offers and find the best values, and I keep in constant communication with my clients—giving them straightforward and insightful information from which they can make informed decisions.”
What are your two best qualities?
“My two best qualities are IQ and EQ. Being quick and smart really helps in this business, but smart isn’t what sets great agents apart—it’s enjoying and understanding people and finding true joy in satisfying their needs and objectives. Unlike other major investments, a home is not commodity; a home is uniquely personal. I attribute my success to insight, judgment and empathy. I love what I do and am proud to be trusted by my colleagues, respected by my competitors and wholeheartedly recommended by my clients.”
What has been the highlight of your career?
“I was just given The Agency’s 2018 MVP award. Surrounded by successful, hard-working agents whom I admire and respect, this was an incredible honor and a definite career milestone.”
