I am continuously striving to improve upon my skills as a full service Realtor®, so as to provide top-notch service to all of my clients. My business model is based on creating and developing lasting relationships with every client. This means I will be involved throughout the entire process by keeping them up to date on the market, clarifying every step of the transaction, and keeping in touch long after the sale is complete. My method is to carefully assess and understand their desires and needs, then make every effort to satisfy those details. My goal is to ensure my clients have an experience that is efficient, successful, and enjoyable.
I’ve lived in the Puget Sound area my entire life, including such areas as Wallingford, Magnolia, Burien, and currently Ballard. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington, and my employment background incorporates experience in sales, customer service relations, and social work in women’s advocacy. I chose to pursue my real estate profession in Seattle because I am proud to be a part of one of the most thriving metropolises in the country. Seattle is at the forefront of economic prosperity as one of the nation’s strongest housing markets. Seattle also attracts young and ambitious professionals seeking career opportunities in a fun and progressive city.
The Lake philosophy is based on the idea that clients are treated as members of the family. I have a very strong work ethic based on trust and honesty. I also love what I do! Therefore, when working with me, you’ll have a genuine, dependable, and enthusiastic agent who will make every effort to guide you successfully through your home buying/selling journey. I look forward to speaking with you and getting started on the adventure!

My mom finally made the decision to downsize from her home of 45 years. That is where Andrea came in, with the best guidance we could have asked for every step of the way. She assisted my mom in the search for a smaller, more manageable condo, and we found a gem! Then the hard work began of prepping the house for sale. Andrea again provided excellent guidance and referrals to get the work done. She kept in close touch with both me and my mom, and seemed to work out every wrinkle with ease. Her recommendations were always spot on, and we had our first offer within days.
Andrea was incredible every step of the way, making an otherwise stressful event a very positive experience. Her flexibility, patience, and communication was just what we needed, and I couldn’t recommend her any higher.
- Working with Andrea was great, and we couldn't be happier with our new home! My wife and I are first time homebuyers, so naturally we had a lot of questions. Andrea was very patient and answered all of our questions, and made sure we felt good about the whole process. When looking at homes she always pointed out both the good and bad features, and we never felt like she was trying to pressure or rush us. We definitely recommend working with her.• Working with Andrea was great, and we couldn't be happier with our new home!

- My husband and I, being first time homebuyers, knew right away that we wanted to work with Andrea. She was highly personable, very professional, and had a lot of knowledge in the workings of real estate. Andrea was very patient and eager to help answer our hundreds of questions. We thought the process would be very overwhelming, but Andrea set us at ease every step of the way. It was a relief knowing that our agent was willing to go up to bat for us at any curve ball we were thrown (and we were certainly thrown a few).
We would definitely recommend anyone who is looking to buy a home to use Andrea as a Realtor. If we ever sell the wonderful home she got us into, we would use her services again in a heartbeat.

- Andrea Hamley worked with me on the purchase of my first home. I came into the process with lots of questions and naïveté about the housing market, not to mention a few unique interests and somewhat finicky mindset about what house would become my home. Andrea met all of that with warmth and grace. Her energy, thoughtfulness, and commitment to support the reaching of my home-purchasing goals make it a pleasure to now recommend her as an agent for prospective home buyers.
I found Andrea to be very knowledgeable about trends in Seattle’s housing market in Seattle, and well-acquainted with the attributes of each neighborhood and home that we visited. She was consistently generous with her time, and well-connected with other local professionals (e.g., lending agent, inspectors) that contributed in the home-purchasing process. These are all of course great qualities for a real estate agent, but the area where Andrea most excels is in her sincere effort to understand and support the unique home-buying interests and concerns of her clients. She was initially inquisitive about these and always perceptive, and provided a helpful and supportive second perspective at key points of ambivalence or indecision. All in all, I felt my interests were extremely well-understood and advocated for by her throughout the home-purchasing process. I would recommend her to prospective home buyers in Seattle without reservation.
