Established in 1978, The Andover Company, Inc. was formed to provide professional real estate
brokerage services for clients that require more versatility and support than can be offered by a sole
practitioner, and more personalized service than is normally available from a national firm. The
Andover Company, Inc. has 13 brokers with over 200 years of experience that specialize in leasing
and selling industrial, office and investment properties in the South King and North Pierce County
Organizational Structure that Benefits the Client
The Andover Company is a member of Corporate Facility Advisors International (CORFAC International), a
privately-held, unified, global partnership of independent member firms that deploys its combined
resources, personnel, relationships, market knowledge and skills to meet the needs of clients on a local,
regional, national and international basis.
With the assistance of CORFAC International, The Andover Company offers local market research and
expertise, strong, independent worldwide market coverage, and technology that connects each office to
effectively communicate throughout the world.
The Andover Company is strategically located at the north end of the Kent Valley. This allows Andover
representatives to be within minutes of all major industrial and office properties in the area. The benefit to
the Owner is that Andover agents are better positioned to research potential sites, communicate with
potential landlords, and track changes in the market that could affect the lease transaction. Andover’s
philosophy is that in order to understand the market, you have to be a part of it.
