Hi! I’m Andrea Wales…

Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my experience of moving from a small town named Clarkston located in lower Michigan to an even smaller town named Kingsley in northern Michigan.

I moved up to the Kingsley area 11 years ago after I met and fell in love with the man who would become my husband, Stan. Little did I realize how much I would also fall in love with this little jewel called Traverse City!!!

We rented a house in Kingsley. It soon became apparent that we would not be content to remain renters. You see, my husband has a love for all things outdoors and I have a love for running, gardening and building or remodeling houses and turning them into beautiful homes.

That is when we realized that we would need property suitable for our home and recreation. We found a beautiful and private 20 acre lot and with a lot of hard work and vision we brought our dream into reality. Later, we added another 40 acres to our parcel and spent a happy 8 years there.

One day, while out doing volunteer work, we stumbled on a cabin with a couple of acres that was for sale on Spider Lake – although it was originally built in the 1940’s and was in need of some serious repair and updating we could see it’s potential and knew that we just had to have it! We met with our Real Estate Agent and put a bid in immediately. We bought our “new” old cabin 2 years ago and traded our 60 secluded acres in Kingsley for 2 acres of Spider Lake Living and have no regrets!

We have been remodeling and rebuilding our lovely cabin for the past 2 years and are so happy with the results.

This brings me to why I wanted to become a Real Estate Agent. You
see… It finally dawned on me that after helping to design and build 3 homes that I have lived in and loved and remodeling our Cabin on the Lake, I want to share that passion with you!!!

I cannot wait to assist you in turning your dream into a reality as I help you in any way that I can to buy your house and turn it into a home or sell your current home and move on to the next dream…
