Andrew Thurm went above and beyond in representing us and our property.  We were out of the country and he had to take care of hundreds of details— including cleaning our fridge.  He got an offer within three days of listing our property. Andrew was professional, diplomatic, and a real joy to work with.  I cannot recommend him too highly.

Andrew has helped me sell four different properties in Santa Monica. In each of these transactions, he has proven his worth as my agent by aggressively marketing our properties, understanding the market well enough to set the right price, staging the homes to look their best and helping me evaluate buyers and offers. He is also a tireless worker having done weekly open houses for as long as it took to find a buyer that I was comfortable with. I recently recommended Andrew to my wife’s cousin and he helped them buy a place in West Hollywood. I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in LA. ​

Andrew and Deborah Thurm did a fantastic job by finding a buyer for me in a very competitive market, and getting close to a historically high price per square foot for me in Santa Monica. This was particularly impressive, not only because the condo complex was under renovation and had pending repairs, but also because the buyer was uniquely challenging to work with. You completely understood the issues surrounding the sale, overcame all buyer objections, and ultimately helped me sell my property in time to buy a much bigger home for my new Family. You and Debra are the finest realtors I've ever met, and I would happily serve as a referral source for you in the years ahead. Happy Holidays from Paula, me and our Angels!

Andrew Thurm is the most honest and hardworking of all the real estate professionals I have worked with. Nobody does a better job selling residential properties on the Westside and in Santa Monica than Andrew Thurm. I highly recommend working with Andrew and his lovely assistant Deborah.

Hi Andrew, I have to say that I sought your expertise because I believed that you knew the ins and outs of the local market. I got much more, including impeccable integrity and professionalism. I appreciate your work on my behalf.

​​​I've had the pleasure of working with Andrew Thurm over the last 5 years and have done 2 purchases and 1 sale with him in the Santa Monica area.  Through each transaction, Andrew was extremely professional and thorough, ensuring I was well informed of the market and on properties of interest.  He executes his services with great integrity, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

I was thoroughly satisfied with Andrew and his team’s excellent work in selling my condo in Santa Monica. I wanted a real experienced specialist that I had known of for 30 years as a long time resident. He was professional every step of the way. He had the references for every service we needed along the way. Andrew go me a great price in a short amount of time. You will be very happy if you select him as your agent.

This is easy.  I bought my townhome from Andrew. I was about to walk away when he took the initiative to really point out the positives of this place not easily seen.  Because of his knowledge and care I bought the home and am very happy with it.  I know when I sell my place I will work with him, because of not only him being and active representative when selling but even now he gives me advice on updating my place even though I have not yet placed it on on the market. Thank you  Andrew.

We met Andrew Thurm in 2002 when he assisted us in the purchase of a condominium in Santa Monica. Andrew spent considerable time driving us to various condominiums in search of the right one. He evaluated our desires and our needs accurately, and we ultimately found exactly what we were looking for. In addition, while the escrow transaction was ongoing, Andrew found us a tenant who was a good tenant for approximately four years. Andrew’s services have been honest, forthright and professional; and I believe that we have become good friends. I will have no reluctance to retain him in the future for any services to real estate.

Harris and I were really touched by your thoughtfulness.  The experience of selling our place was so painless, and that was thanks to you and your team.  I am incredibly impressed by the efficiency, the kindness, and the excellence of your work.  I had liked you when I first met you and you were selling the condo next door.  Your ability to keep everything positive and friendly was clear to me then.  And I feel like a real smartie for choosing you to sell ours. 

Dear Deborah and Andrew, it has been nothing but a pleasure doing several deals with you and Andrew.Your work ethic and honesty is beyond what anyone could ask for. Your interior design skills make every project seem easy and successful. See u at the next escrow!! All the best.

​We have known Andrew Thurm since 2001 and have engaged in three transactions with him since then. Andrew is a consummate real estate professional. From our first interaction, we were impressed by his business acumen and seriousness of purpose. He was, and remains, thoroughly knowledgeable of the Santa Monica marketplace. One of Andrew’s outstanding traits is his ability to guide a client through the intense negotiation process and associated paperwork. It is one thing to agree on a price, but quite another to see the scenario through to fruition with as little stress as possible. We have enjoyed working with Andrew on a personal basis and recommend him without reservation.

Dear Andrew, Thank you so much for your help selling our condo and buying our new home. Working with you was a smooth and pleasant experience. You made the time to address all of our concerns and work through all of the details of our transactions thoroughly. We were pleased with the whole experience and we would not hesitate to enlist your services again in our next real estate venture.
