Guest:

Andrea Bergin is a mother, a wife, and a very passionate business owner. She started her career at the early age of 14 working for her parents’ real estate publication. Andrea worked hard starting from the very bottom and in just a few years she was the head of the entire sales department.

At the age of 20, she married her husband Jon and moved with him to Savannah, Georgia for his career in the United States Army. Andrea spent over 6 years in Savannah where she worked tirelessly keeping the balance between her job in property management and the most important job of raising her children.

In 2014 Andrea, her husband, and their two beautiful daughters moved to Vail, Arizona where she sought out and received her real estate license. In her first six months of real estate Andrea was able to sell over 3 million dollars in home sales, far exceeding everyone’s expectations. She closed that year with 5.5 million dollars in home sale and was awarded Rookie of the Year by Keller Williams Southern Arizona.

Now Andrea runs an investment company, a team in Tucson, and teaches families how to build wealth in real estate. She ended 2016 with 8.5 million in sales and is on track to double that in 2017.
