About Andrea Jarvis

Why did I become a Real Estate Professional? 22 years in the Health Care Industry and a 5 year stop in Airline Service Management dominated my early career. Having sold my own home, I found that I really enjoyed the process. I decided to make the change to Real Estate, where I could continue serving people in an industry I was passionate about.

How long have I been in Real Estate? I began my Real Estate career in 2008 (Passed the exam on April Fools Day), when the Real Estate Market was deeply depressed. Entering this new field in a difficult time taught me how to work hard, and appreciate the knowledge and support I receive from my Company, Pete Anderson Realty Assoc., Inc.

Where do I do most of my business? I live in Happy Valley, but was raised in Southwest Portland (Garden Home). That being said, I have sold homes from Gresham to Sherwood, Molalla, Beavercreek, Milwaukie, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Tigard, and of course, all over Portland.

What’s something people are surprised to learn about me?
 Fishing is my favorite pastime.
 I enjoyed living for 7 years in my floating home on the Beautiful Columbia River.
 I competed internationally with a Dragon Boat Team.
 Having experienced breast cancer in 2015-2016, I now host a monthly support group at our Eastside Portland Office of Pete Anderson Realty.
