Born in Chicago and raised on the North side, Andy has developed a keen understanding of what each individual neighborhood has to offer. Andy loves what he does and his commitment to create an exceptional experience for his clients paired with his straightforward knack for negotiation makes him an excellent fit for real estate.
Andy is part of the Scott Stavish Group, which has been involved in over 600 transactions, totaling over $250 Million dollars in sales. He has proven himself a valuable asset to this team.
Andy is there to alleviate the pressures and stress of a deal. He will quarterback the transaction between agents, lenders, attorney and inspectors while being a trusted advisor to his clients.
Previous to becoming a Realtor in 2013, Andy spent many years in the restaurant industry. This helped Andy develop a strong business sense and ability to quickly analyze issues and create solutions. The experience Andy gained managing restaurants also honed his excellent communication skills through years of one-on-one interactions. Managing restaurants also meant managing many different personalities between customers, employees and vendors - a skill set that has translated into successfully managing the many facets of a real estate transaction, negotiating with other agents and communicating with lenders and attorneys.
Andy has spent his career working tirelessly to ensure all of his clients needs are accommodated. He recognizes that owning a home is extremely personal and, for most people, real estate is the largest asset they will own. Andy's ability to easily manage the flow of each transaction while communicating with each client along the way is something he takes great pride in.
In his free time Andy enjoys spending time with his kids, playing hockey, golf and jujitsu. As an avid Chicago sports fan, you may catch him at a Hawks, Bears or Cubs game. He also enjoys the great food, drink and music scene the city has to offer.
Clients are saying:
"We could not have picked a better real estate agent than Andy Tsoukalis. He helped us skillfully and confidently navigate the home buying process by providing us with his knowledge, advice, and trusted experience. We closed on the purchase during the pandemic, but did not feel stressed as Andy was there every step of the way."
"Andy Tsoukalis is a knowledgeable realtor who has his client's best interests at heart. He is friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about Chicago neighborhoods and the real estate market. Throughout the entire process, Andy was patient and wanted us to find the right place, whether it took one month or one year. Once we had found a place he structured our offer to give us the best chance of winning. After going under contract, he held our hands the entire way making sure we understood what was happening and what we could do as various situations arose. Throughout the process he made sure we were asking the right questions and getting satisfactory answers. We appreciated working with Andy and would whole heatedly recommend him."
"I've now sold two homes with Andy and both times he was very knowledgeable and professional. I believe we got the best price possible from our home sales and Andy was always quick to answer my emails and texts right away with solid answers. He has good negotiation skills and can recommend real estate attorneys who are easy to deal with. I highly recommend Andy to sell your home or to help you find a home."
"Andy truly stands out as a Realtor. Warm friendly and engaging. But most importantly he was an advocate for us in the purchase of an East Lake View condo. He is incredibly knowledgeable informative and patient. He understands the selection process and was willing to work with us at our pace.
The selection process took several months and over that time Andy became a trusted friend and he treated us like family.
As we narrowed the selection process Andy was out of the country for a wedding. He put us in the capable hands of his business partner Scott Stavish, who was well informed of our purchase plan and it was a seamless transition. (Andy even checked in on us from abroad!)
In making our offer, Andy suggested a strategic approach that enabled us to successfully get the property without a bargaining haggle in a very competitive situation.
It was a pleasure working with Andy. He was committed through our sale and closing and made it effortless for us. Then welcomed us to our new home.
We Highly recommend Andy for consideration as your Realtor.
Thank You Andy.
Joe and Jane Gallo"
