Andréa "Ande" Sedwick, moved to New York City from her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky back in 2003. Having lived in New York for over 9 years in nearly every sector and every borough, she has never forgotten her Southern upbringing of "Home is where the heart is."
After working for a boutique rental firm in the financial district, Ande decided she wanted to further her career as an estate agent. In August 2011, Ande joined NestSeekers International. She has since then been representing buyers, sellers and renters worldwide, closing everything from million dollar sales to one bedroom rentals. Her extensive knowledge of today's ever changing market will ensure you are provided with all the information you need to make and informed decision.
Whether you are brand new to the city or you are a native New Yorker - looking to rent or buy - Ande will work until she has found the right property for your needs and her tenacious and vibrant personality will guarantee that you have fun throughout the entire process too.

"Ande was a major help when we needed to find a short term rental for one of our MLB clients in the city. Ande's knowledge of the city and willing to work beyond what was asked of her made things happen quickly and the transaction ran quick and smoothly. She is definitely receiving more referrals from us in the future!"
"My husband and I needed to find an apartment when our landlord increased our rent dramatically. We were initially looking to rent, and contacted NestSeekers and several other agencies that had listing we were interested in. Ande Sedwick from NestSeekers was the first to respond. This is how we met Ande.
Ande was the most responsive, attentive broker we have ever worked with. Ande got us into all the apartments we wanted to see, and several we didn't even know about. She is very knowledgable about the real estate market in downtown Manhattan She worked around our difficult work schedules. She was tenacious and kept looking for our next home until we finally found the right apartment.
In the end, we bought an apartment. Ande had connections with mortgage brokers, and helped us with all the paperwork and board approvals we needed to close.
We really enjoyed working with Ande and enjoyed the time we spent together. We highly recommend Ande to any renter/buyer.
Denise and Scott"

"Random luck got us conneted with Ande. However, luck was subsequently replaced with talent, dedication and hard work. The service and the results were both outstanding, and we cannot say enough about her"

Ande Sedwick is the person to go to. She worked hard to get me an incredible and rare apartment and is going the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. What's more is that she is also a really fun person to be around. She has since helped my family and friends and everyone really likes her.

I was lucky enough to stumble across Ande Sedwick's ad on Craigslist at a low point in my apartment search. I'd met with several brokers and seen several places but none of them seemed to respect/value my (the customer) input. I was extremely clear about what I wanted but these other brokers didn't seem to care. They kept pushing me out of my budget or ignoring other key requirements I laid out from the start. Then I called Ande. We discussed what I needed and she delivered. I looked at five apts in one afternoon -- all in the financial district -- and each one was more on point than the last. I ended up at 200 Water and am loving it. She has a good relationship with the management in the buildings I saw and she's very responsive to requests/inquiries, no matter the hour (and I can be demanding).
It was refreshing to trust a broker and feel comfortable that she could earn her keep without ripping me off. (I think she's with Nestseekers now but I don't see her on their site.) Oh, and I know this is unprofessional, but she's beautiful, to boot. I'll be getting back in touch in a couple years when I'm ready to buy. Highly recommend you do the same.

Ande Sedwick is the best broker I have ever worked with. She's an expert and goes above and beyond negotiating the best deal possible. In addition, she's got a great energy and actually makes the typically stressful task of searching for an apartment--fun! She even hooked me up with great movers! You can't go wrong working with Ande. She rocks. Thanks Ande!!!

Ande is prompt with email/phone responses, friendly, professional, and tenacious when it comes to finding you places to see. I literally had 24 hours in NYC to find a place. Not only did she go out of her way to find me the perfect place but also prepared me ahead of time so that the application process was seamless. Ande FTW!!

Who needs Craigslist when there's Andrea "Ande" Sedwick?! I came to Ande in search of an apartment and a roommate. Upon meeting her, I knew I was in good hands. She listened to my needs, answered any questions I had, and knew the ins and outs of not only FiDi, but the rest of Manhattan too.
I worked with Ande for a month in finding the right "match" insofar as a roommate is concerned. During that month, Ande introduced me to several prospects, set up call times for us and drink meetings. I mean, apartment searching is tough within itself, and you would THINK roommate searching would be too.... But Ande made it fun and was there for me EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. I remember one day texting her at 1130pm with a roommate question, and her responding right away to then calling me to discuss.
In addition, my overall budget for an apartment was suitable for a nice studio downtown. Ande could have easily steered me in that direction but she didn't. She knew I wanted a roommate for a 2B2B...and worked diligently in finding me the right one. Talk about loyalty!
I now have an amazing roommate and live in the BEST luxury building downtown. Thank you ANDE!!!! :-)

"I had a great experience working with Andrea Sedwick. After moving in we realized we did not have wireless access for a short-term, summber sublet. Andrea was very responsive to this need and offered us her cable modem box for personal use. Can't say enough how much I appreciated her attention to the issue and overall kindness & generosity--hard to find in this city! If you are looking to live in fidi, definitely contact Ande"

"I strongly recommend Ande Sedwick as a licensed real estate agent with intimate knowledge of Fidi and lower manhattan. She assisted me with many property searches and did an excellent job of advertising the buildings on line. When I had questions, she was patient and thorough with answering them. Throughout the month long screening, she answered every call, every text and has a high quality roommate matching service if you want to land a 2/2 in a deluxe bldg. Ande brings a lot of personality and spirit to her job. She works and lives in the financial district and is the epitome of the rebirth of downtown nyc. Hard working, talented and passionate are trademark characteristics that I personally found to be exactly what I want from a real estate agent and a friend."

"Ande, you are the best broker I have ever dealt with and I've done business with many, living alone, in the city for years. You matched me so well with my new roommate after nightmares of people in and out throughout the years. I needed a roommate right away since my old roommate just picked up and left due to finances completely screwing me over since my mother is the guarantor. You found me a great match, the very next day!!!!! I couldn't thank you enough for all of your help, even helping my roomie move in all her things, taking the time out of your busy schedule to bring each box upstairs and unloading it with me. You are so dedicated to your job and very caring. I am lucky to have found you and will be contacting you in the future. You are AWESOME!!! Anyone who is searching for a roommate or apartment MUST know and go through you. Thanks again!!"
"Ande Sedwick really came through for me in finding an apartment in the financial District. The first day I met with her I was able to find a roommate and the apartment that I am now living in. The apartment is unbelievable...."
-Suede Puma, Citysearch.com

"Andrea Sedwick was great. She showed me around places that perfectly match my criteria and even found me a great flat mate. She also supported me with the paper work and other staff and always offered additional help. I am having a great time in my new apartment. Thank you Ande."
