Agent Profile Picture

Andy Meeks

Earth Advantage Broker


My clients are always my top priority, and my singular focus is to help them achieve their goals efficiently and effectively.

This is the intention I set every day, and how I define success.

As a trained and licensed attorney, I lead with a sharp attention to detail, a keen ear and focused voice, and an unwavering commitment to integrity, transparency and responsiveness.

I’m a passionate advocate and I thrive when helping others succeed, and I’m always available to connect over a cup of coffee to learn how I can help make good things happen.

The choice to become a real estate broker was a joyful combination of two very different careers. Prior to moving to Portland in 2008, I was an environmental and title closing attorney in Massachustts. Since then, I’ve served as a program manager and fundraising professional for Portland-based non-profit organizations Friends of Trees, The Freshwater Trust and Ecotrust.

While not scouting homes and helping clients, you can find me riding and racing bicycles, digging in the garden, practicing yoga, experimenting in the kitchen, and exploring the stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Please let me know how I can help you or someone you know. Thank you!

Andy's Testimonials

Andy is a great realtor and represented us in the purchase of a home. He was always responsive to our questions and concerns and is very friendly and honest. My wife and I were selling our home out of state while looking in Portland. Andy was very good at managing our stresses and concerns. His  help included a marathon weekend of looking at almost 20 properties. We would definitely recommend his services to others.

Stephanie and Patrick

We just worked with Andy to buy our first home and can’t say enough good things about him!. We just worked with Andy to buy our first home and can’t say enough good things about him! He patiently helped us find the perfect home while providing useful information and insights every step of the way. He was quick to respond to all our questions and was great about finding time to tour homes that fit with our schedules. Andy was super knowledgeable about the area of town we wanted to end up in and made sure we landed in a house that had all of our desired features.

Jordan and Katie

Working with Andy was the best experience I’ve ever had with a realtor. He went out of his way to show us homes, any day of the week, and was a timely and effective communicator. He genuinely wanted to find us the best home and he put in the work to do so. I couldn’t recommend him enough!

Joel and Lindsey

When we sold our house we wanted to a. Get a good price for it, b. Be hands off (we have a super busy life with 3 kids, I own a business and both of us work), and c. Peace of mind. Andy was stellar in all aspects. Lots of market research to help us figure out the price. The highest value he  provided was in all the prep work...He did sooooooo much work for us, from meeting with contractors to get repair bids, stagers to get suggestions, and working around our busy schedules for meetings. Our house sold for above asking and he was a great guide in the post-inspection negotiating phase. We HIGHLY recommend Andy as a knowledgeable and trustworthy person to work with.

Augusto and Carissa

Seriously, Andy is amazing. As first-time home buyers we were very much adrift. Hiring Andy was one of the best decisions we made. He is extremely knowledgeable and walked us through the process. Having someone to focus our search, explain each step in detail, and help organize the whirlwind of  activities was such a huge relief. From the moment we first contacted Andy he was extraordinarily responsive, highly professional yet passionate, and very accommodating to our schedules. He is committed to making sure his clients are satisfied throughout the process, not just making the sale.

Chris and Becca

As doting grandparents, we had decided to buy a home in Portland to be close to our son’s family. We were nervous about the process, because, although we were very familiar with the New England real estate market, we knew next to nothing about the Portland market. From our first long-distance conversations to our meeting at Woodlawn Coffee to 30 house tours to the final offer and negotiation steps, we felt we had expert guidance from Andy Meeks. He managed to keep us focused as we fine-tuned our priorities and explored different Northeast neighborhoods. At our stage in life, we have lots of set expectations and needs. Andy kept his positive outlook throughout, even when I’m sure we were sending mixed signals. We eventually found a great home near the grandchildren, Fernhill Park, and New Seasons market. After our first month here, we are very pleased with our choice. We wholeheartedly recommend Andy to anyone buying in Portland.
