Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR)
Seller Representative Specialist (SRS)
Andrea has been a licensed Realtor® since 2011. A firm believer in the “always learning” philosophy, she has since obtained her Broker’s license; Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) accreditations. An avid student of architecture and interior design, she is actively pursuing her interior design certification. Andrea is currently serving on the WI Realtors Association Professional Standards and Ethics committee and has been since 2013. She was also selected to serve on the Professional Standards Work Group in 2016, which develops education guidelines for state/local Professional Standards training and reviews NAR Professional Standards revisions. As a result of her long tenure on the Professional Standards and Ethics committee, Andrea was invited to teach Professional Standards and Ethics at the RASCW new member orientation (a required class for new agents), a volunteer position she has now held since 2022.
In this Seller’s market that we now find ourselves in, Andrea prides herself on thinking out of the box and finding creative solutions to help get the results you want. Customer service is something she feels very strongly about. To put it simply, she treats her clients and customers the way she would like and expect to be treated!
History And Home Life
Andrea grew up in Baton Rouge, La and then spent over a decade in western New York after meeting and marrying her husband, John. While in NY, she worked in television broadcasting for both the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills among other organizations. Andrea and her family moved to Dane County in 2010 after John accepted a position in Madison. A southerner at heart, she makes it her priority to carry on the south Louisiana tradition of providing “Lagniappe” (translation: a little something extra) every chance she gets.
In her free time Andrea enjoys reading, traveling, volunteering, and walking the dogs. Her oldest daughter is currently a member of the Illinois Tech lacrosse team so she and John try to make it to as many games as they can while also cheering on their younger two as they pursue football, lacrosse, and showing their horse Paisley.
What Clients Say
“Andrea was the BEST! Very good at determining what our needs/wants were and never made us feel like we were being pressured into a decision. Genuinely made us feel like she cared about finding us the right home – in fact trusted her so much that in the end we made the offer on the home we ultimately purchased site unseen because she is just that good!” – Martie B.
“I have worked with many Realtors over the years and without a doubt Andrea is the best! The property I purchased was in a different state from my current residency. Andrea protected my interests from the offer to the closing. At times, I was unsure of exactly how to proceed and she supplied the expertise needed to guide me in the right direction. Andrea’s abilities and knowledge of the Madison market will make any home purchase a smooth and positive experience.” – Diane
“This was my first home buying experience so I was not that savvy in my assessment of each property. I had to look at a ton of houses before I started to feel comfortable with what was feeling right to me. Andrea was very patient and stuck with us on our lengthy search. She was always very prompt responding to our calls and emails and made herself readily available for showings. She was honest with her opinions of the properties we saw and kept our priorities in mind. She got us in to see the home we purchased just before it went on the market which was critical in the competitive downtown area we were looking in. I really enjoyed working with Andrea and would definitely use her again in the future.” Michelle W.
“As a first time home buyer I didn’t know what to expect, but was glad to have found Andrea Davitt, who truly was a professional dedicated to assisting clients to the best of her abilities. In any industry, it is seldom that you come across a professional that truly cares about their clients which made working with Andrea even better! It’s evident that Andrea is passionate about knowing her marketplace, and I believe that she constantly educates herself to expand her knowledge and stay on top of the ever-changing marketplace. I valued all of her insights as she was showing me homes. I highly recommend Andrea, I am confident you will be pleased with not just her abilities . . . but the results she produces.” – A.A.
“We really appreciated your help during our search for a home and we thought you did a great job listening to both of us and steering us in the right direction. We also really appreciated your educating us on important things to look for inside a home (we didn’t know anything about furnaces, for example). ” – M.G.
“As first time home buyers, we could not have appreciated Andrea’s enthusiasm, flexibility and responsiveness more! She was great from start to finish and walked us through everything so we could understand it. She was incredibly energetic from the moment we met her and was willing to take whatever approach we wanted. I felt as though she was always in our corner, working with us to get what we wanted. We will definitely recommend Andrea to my family and friends who are looking to purchase a home.” – L.T.
“My husband and I just closed on our house just a few days ago and unfortunately the sellers were a nightmare from the offer to the close, but Andrea did a wonderful job mediating. She was very proactive in answering all our questions and contacting the listing agent to address all our concerns. We looked at around 16 homes before we settled on ours and Andrea was willing to meet us at odd hours and days; we also didn’t have to wait more than 36 hours to get into a house to look at it. All in all, Andrea made our home buying experience a pleasurable one and we will never forget how hard everyone worked to make our home a reality.” Thank you again, M and A J.
“We would both like to express our extreme pleasure with our experience working with Andrea. You have been incredibly helpful and patient working with us. I am amazed that you all were available virtually any hour of the day, and how quickly things are being done. I’m still flabbergasted at the fact that that 8:45 pm we decided to put an offer in, and by 9:45 that same night the sellers agent had the offer in hand. I’ve never worked with a real estate office before, and in the back of my head I figured it would be like working with a combination of lawyers and car salesmen…you all dispelled that idea, and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with you and your office again.” G.T.
“H. and I were celebrating this week our first year as homeowners and were talking about how you were such a blessing in our life. So we decided to share some of the photos of the before and afters during this year of intense work. We have done every single thing by ourselves and you would never imagine how much I have learned about homeownership. Hope you enjoy.Blessings for you and your family and thank you very much for your excellence.” H. and Y.
“My experience of working with Andrea was wonderful. She went above and beyond to make the whole process go smoothly and make me feel at ease.” – J.O
“We were two first time homebuyers. We had no clue where to start. Andrea was there for us the entire way. She answered every “I have no bloody idea” question and made sure to clue us in where we didn’t even know to ask. She is absolutely wonderful and took a great amount of care to ensure she knew exactly what we had in mind, even when we ourselves didn’t. I’d highly suggest working with her. She is great.” – G.G
“Andrea was very patient with us in helping us Nnd out Nrst home. She’s very communicative, prompt, and very knowledgeable. We would recommend Andrea to any one looking for a home in the Madison area.” Roi L
“Andrea helped us buy our first house. She communicated really well, and the process went by very quickly and smoothly. We talked with Andrea for the first time in late December and we closed on our house in less than 7 weeks! She also virtually toured us through homes (including the one we ended up buying) when we were out-of-state/quarantining. Love that she asked us exactly what we were looking up front and only showed us houses that met all our criteria (price range, size, style, etc). I would definitely recommend!”-Jennifer T
