Meet Andrea Bleicher, REALTOR® with Professional Realty Group (PRG) of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (www.prg-ne.com).
Tell us a little about your business. – PRG was created by my husband Ben Bleicher and myself in Lincoln in 2018. This year, we joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (BHHS) and expanded into the Omaha market. What sets our team apart in the real estate world is that we wholeheartedly assume the duty of a fiduciary for our clients—we’re not just a salesperson. We’re relentless in our efforts to get them the best possible deal, keeping in mind that a real estate purchase is usually one of the most expensive investments a person makes. Therefore, the process requires experience-backed guidance, support, and care. By partnering with BHHS, our team has access to a broader network of resources and agents from multiple brokerages and diverse backgrounds so we can better assist our clients with buying and selling residential, commercial, new construction, leasing, and investments.
Tell us a little about your family. – Ben and I have been married for five years. Our family consists of Ben’s son Vincent (19) and daughter Brynnlee (9), as well as a spoiled little dog named Lola and a cat named Henry who we all call Hunky and are completely obsessed with.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – A realtor having a full day off rarely happens, but when I do get some down time I always want to spend it with those I love. Ben and I are lucky enough to have a lot of family that lives in Omaha and Lincoln, and we really appreciate the time that we get to spend with them. In the summer (my favorite time of year), I am always excited that I get extra time with my bonus daughter, Brynnlee. We spend most of it visiting with family or at the pool at Firethorn in Lincoln with our friends.
What is your favorite hobby? – Definitely cooking. I am by no means a gourmet chef, but it is something that I really enjoy. For me, making good food is a great way to show my family how much I love them. Plus I find the process of cooking very zen.
What local nonprofit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why? – I am on the party planning committee for the Josh the Otter organization. Their mission is to educate children and adults worldwide about water safety through the utilization of drowning prevention campaigns and early childhood water safety training.
What is your favorite book or the last good book you read? – I don’t think that I can narrow it down to one book as I absolutely love to read and usually read about 20 books a year. However, my favorite author is Karin Slaughter as I love to read a good thriller. I also enjoy a good nonfiction book that can help me improve as a person or give me a new perspective. The two books that really changed my life are The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown and The Seven Decisions: Understanding the Keys to Personal Success by Andy Andrews. Both of these books really changed my perspectives on life. I reread them both every couple of years and always get something new out of them.
