What's your background, education and training?

I graduated from Wheaton College (MA) in 2000 with a bachelor's degree in Philosophy with a minor in legal studies. I graduated from Suffolk University Law School in 2005 with a JD. In 2010, I graduated from Suffolk University Sawyer Business School with an MBA.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

I like to sit down with new clients to go through the buying process with them, learn about their needs/wants for a new home, answer their questions about the process and the market conditions and then come up with a strategy going forward.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

My advice to homebuyers is to find an exclusive buyer agent like myself with local area knowledge and experience and who will dedicate time to guiding you through the process. Be sure that you meet the agent in person and that its a good personality fit since you will be working closely together on your home search!

What inspired your passion for your profession?

I love helping people and find the the process of helping homebuyers in all market segments find their next home truly satisfying and enriching.

What services are you most excited to offer?

I love the variety of clients that I work with! I have clients in all market segments including first-time buyers, investors, empty-nesters moving into the City, luxury clients and relocation buyers. This keeps my job interesting at all times.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

I always enjoy the excitement of my clients on closing day but one memory that stands out is the excitement of having clients in the car with when I received the call that their offer was accepted. They were so happy and excited!

What makes your business stand apart?

My business model as an exclusive buyer agent along with my educational background as a lawyer with an MBA definitely help me stand apart from other brokers. My dedication, professionalism, responsiveness and work ethic also help me stand apart from the competition. I really pride myself on educating my clients throughout the process.

How many years have you been in business?

11 years

What do clients have to say about you?

"Andrew McKinney deserves ten stars. As a first time home buyers, we had no idea what we were doing. Andrew was super patient with us though, and talked us through the entire process. I really appreciated how objective he was. When he felt like a property wouldn't work for us, he'd tell us. He supported us in seeing properties we probably had no chance in hell of actually ""winning"", gave us his honest thoughts, and when we made an offer went through line by line so we completely understood."

"With the excellent professional and resourceful help of Andrew McKinney, I became a home owner last week. I needed someone who was trustworthy and who was knowledgeable and connected to represent me and step me through the competitive process of buying a condo in Boston. Not only was Andrew all of these things he was also personable, kind, patient, prompt and easy to communicate with"

"There was not a single thing we didn't like about working with Andrew, but top 3 reasons why we would recommend him to others are:

a. His personality. He was extremely patient and answered every question we had kindly. He offered advice whenever we asked and never pushed or rushed us into our decisions.

b. His network. Andrew has a whole network of people you can tap into if interested and we would recommend working with all of them. Everyone he put us in touch with was also patient and respectful and working with them felt like a well-oiled machine. We were involved when we needed to be and could otherwise carry on with our lives.

c. His professionalism. He was always on time, quick to respond to an email and followed up on every item we inquired about from our seller."

Any other information you’d like to provide – Hobbies, etc.

Although I'm a bit of a workaholic, my outside interests include tennis (I'm a former player and instructor), fitness, dining out and spending time at my condo on the Cape in Provincetown.
