Sacramento is my home!

I was born and raised here and am a lifelong Sacramento resident.  I graduated from Jesuit High School and UC Davis with BA degrees in History and English.  Instead of following my plan to become a teacher, I got my real estate license and have been working full time at the Downtown Office of Lyon Real Estate since 1997.  In the past I had been the mentor in our office, and I was able to teach and train the new agents in our office about the real estate business.

I am an Outstanding Life Member of the Sacramento Association of Realtors Masters Club and served as its president in 2009.  

I enjoy being active in my community.  In 2005 I received the Community Service Award from SAR for my involvement with Loaves and Fishes. I serve, or have served, on boards for local charities and non-profits, as well as coached my kids' basketball teams.

Andy was very knowledgeable and very prepared. Listened to our concerns and included us in the decision making process. He was always available and keep us updated thru out the transaction.

—Mark Sarmento, Sacramento

I appreciated that Andy was focused on what I was looking for. He gave me the facts and let me make the decision that was best for me. Andy was professional and courteous. He was also responsive to my communications and thorough in his work. Andy took an ordinarily stressful process and turned it into an enjoyable experience.

—Matt, west Sacramento

Andy Thielen put us at ease from the moment we met him. He addressed all of our concerns and made selling and purchasing our properties an enjoyable experience.

—Kurt and Corinne Popke

After having a complication with the prior agent, a friend of ours recommended to Andy. He swooped in immediately and was extremely well prepared in a short time frame with a wonderfully organized printed copy of everything that was crucial to selling our home including market value, comparison homes selling in the area, and historical data to help us understand how we could sell our home. He listens to us very well and addressed our concerns, and helped us come to a selling price that ended up being exactly what the home appraised for as well as the offer price. We were very satisfied with his attentiveness, patience, and warmth throughout the whole process. We could not recommend Andy more.

—Jose F Abad

My husband passed away about 7 months ago and he was in insurance. Anytime we had questions about real estate my husband always asked Andy Thielen. So, when faced with selling our rental I had no doubt in choosing Andy. I knew that he was trustworthy and I would be in good hands throughout the process. Andy Thielen knew my circumstances and I truly believe he helped get it sold quickly and for a good price.

—Shannon Cameron, Sacramento

Andy was incredibly patient, diligent, and supportive over this very long period we worked together. I appreciated all his feedback, even when he was politely steering me from bad decisions I might have later regretted. He even picked me up several times to view homes when I had car trouble or was between vehicles.

—Ian Sierchio

He understand the terms of the process very well, explains the critical details clearly and concisely, and patiently answers all questions. Was very good about letting us know the options without suggesting the best option (although you can usually tell which one that is). Very easy to deal with, laid back but very responsive and thorough.

—Val Zimmer, West Sacramento

Andy really did an excellent job walking us through our home buying experience. There really were no surprises because Andy was able to prepare us for what was coming next. His knowledge of the real estate industry was obvious and so helpful. He was always available to answer questions or concerns. I know we weren’t his only clients, but he sure made it feel like it! We felt like a priority, that our needs were important and that he wanted what was best for our family. I would use his services again without hesitation!

—Annika Hoffmann, Elk Grove CA

Andy was very flexible and accessible when it came to setting up showings, was very responsive in his communication, and helped us ensure a nice smooth close. He also had good recommendations for the inspection and followed thru even post close. Great realtor to work with.

—The Ravera's, Sacramento

Andy Thielen is an outstanding broker. He knows the rules, regulations and law concerning residential property. I had few questions as Andy answered everything in our initial meeting. He advised me on some negoitaitons which went surprisingly well and we sold the house in 5 days from listing it! Andy is patient and knowledgable and I would recommend him and his expertise for any residential sales.

—Mary Hanson, Sacramento

Andy Thielen was great to work with. He was attentive to my needs. He was honest with all of his communications. We received two offers above asking price one day after the house was on the market. Excellent work. If Andy is representative of the quality of work ethic at your office then I am very happy to have selected your office to sell my house.

—Joan McGee, Sacramento

Andy was professional, easy to contact and willing to help with the many questions I had. He's very patient and professional, but easy to get along with. I would recommend Andy to friends and family that are looking to buy or sell their home.

—Anne Frost, Sacramento

I appreciated the feedback from Andy in regards to what was going on during the sale. I was kept informed throughout the process which I appreciated. Will recommend Andy Thielen to family and friends.

—Lucy, Sacramento, CA

I will always use Andy when buying a new home.

—JGonsalves in Roseville

Andy was recommended by another agent who was unavailable to assist us. We were told that Andy was very knowledgeable of the housing market in the region we were interested, and was a tenacious real estate agent. My wife and I found Andy to be all that and more! Andy did a wonderful job watching out for our interest and communicating with us often throughout the twists & turns of the home buying process. We feel so strongly about Andy and his talents that we recommended him to our son who was considering selling his home.

—Stan & Julie Perez, Sacramento

Andy was like a psychologist and real estate agent in one because he was able to guide me through this process with deeper understanding of what kinds of emotions I was experiencing related to this extremely important decision.

—Victoria Hawes, Sacramento, CA

Andy was very tentative toward my concerns and helped guide me in the right direction as a first time home buyer. He was quick and diligent to answer or address any questions and concerns I had. Most importantly I felt I could trust Andy and that he was looking out for my best interests.

—Shane, Sacramento

Andy handled every aspect of what could have been a very difficult selling process effectively, promptly and in our best interest. After encountering many barriers to closing with respect to price, property repairs, etc., Andy diligently responded to all buyer and seller concerns and ensured that we closed on time. Andy helped with all contractor referrals and completely and effectively communicated and explained the sale documents terms.

—Wayne, East Sacramento

Andy Thielen is a honest and truth worthy Realtor who has always been great to work with!

—Grace and John Trujillo ,Sacramento CA 95819

Andy is an amazing, knowledgable and easy going agent. He can help you find the best deals and makes sure you get the most for your property. I highly recommend Andy for any Realestate transaction you may be considering

—Mike Mooney, Sacramento

Andy really is the best. He's so kind and thoughtful to my concerns and never made me feel rushed in making a decision. He is a great listener and really cares for his clients. Plus, he's aggressive in solidifying deals and pays strong attention to detail. A+

—Monica Stark, Sacramento

Andy was extremely patient with us throughout this process. Since the sale of our property we have asked help from Andy to find us a condo in the Sacramento areas. He has already provided several great options for us to review.

—Bill Pierce, La Jolla

Andy Thielen makes the process so easy and not stressful. Plus, he's really sincere and takes care of his clients. I really feel he puts them before himself. He's truly selfless and really knows his stuff.

—Monica Stark

Andy Thielen helped me purchase the residence and he was a great help in making everything work for me. I did not even consider another agent to help me sell the property at 3618 gold Creek Lane, Sacramento, CA. Andy's advise and communications were excellent. Andy was always there when I needed advise and assisted me in all details of the sale. Andy was the only person that I dealt with. He was the one that helped me purchase the property so he was my choice to help me sell the property. Now that I live in Southern Calif, I hope that if I decide to purchase a property here that I will be able to find an agent that has the same standards as Andy Thielen. Because of Andy I will be looking for some one with the same high standards as Andy's. If asked I will always highly recommend him.

—David Quijada Ventura, CA
