Andrew Perkins’s clients rely on his years of experience as an agent and unquestionable integrity to help them navigate the real estate market. A CONLON / Christie’s International Realtor with an undeniable passion for the industry, he oversees each client’s transaction with the kind of diligence and attention that he would dedicate to his own. To do so, Perkins not only embraces his clients’ vision, but he also pragmatically manages their expectations through transparent and ongoing communication. This approach has earned him their confidence and led to his involvement in more than $100 million in real estate development, sales and marketing initiatives in recent years.
Perkins’s architect father inspired his fascination with buildings and construction from an early age. Although he studied economics, finance and accounting at the University of Illinois before pursuing an investment banking career, real estate proved his true calling. Similar to his childhood interest, he initially focused on real estate development projects, which deepened his knowledge of new construction design and pricing. The unique combination of this experience and his banking background enables Perkins to more accurately determine present and future property valuations for his clients as well as to mitigate potential risks. He also leverages these skills to help sellers, buyers, investors and developers reap the greatest possible return on investment.
