Andrea Merrill, B.S., M.S.;Top Producer, Professional Realtor;Boise & McCall Areas;I was born in Long Beach and raised in La Mirada, California. In 1993, after a couple of years at Long Beach State University I decided to take a year off and came to Idaho to experience the winter playground. After an incredible snow year and 100+ ski days at Bogus Basin Ski Resort in Boise I fell in love skiing and all that Boise has to offer! I permanently moved from the sunny beaches of Orange County to the beautiful Idaho Mountains. The warmth and hospitality of the locals, abundant wildlife, snow, the changing seasons and year round recreation opportunities have ensured that I have never thought of returning to California, not for one day! ;I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation, and Masters of Science in Recreation/Business Administration at the University of Idaho and Washington State University in 1999. I moved to Boise and bought our my home in the historic East End neighborhood and within walking distance to downtown Boise. While living in Boise I have become extremely knowledgeable about the uniqueness of Boise and its rich 125+years of history.;After the many years of Special Events, Recreational and Ski Resort Management, I took a position with the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Salt Lake City Winter Olympic & Paralympics Games of 2002. During the year leading up to the Olympics I worked with many world class athletes, international companies and sponsors, international security consultants, and management teams from all over the world. My persistence, experience and extensive education made me the choice to manage event services for the Provo Ice Hockey Venue and the Snow Basin Ski Venue. I have cherished my Olympic experience as the most amazing time of my life! Truly spectacular & Once in Lifetime!;Deciding not to continue to the Athens Games, I decided to plant my roots in beautiful Boise. In 2003 I acquired my Realtor’s license and began the exciting new career as a real estate advisor. Dedication, attentiveness, and keen negotiation skills enabled me to achieve Top Producer status in my second year in business and continued that success through today! ;From my Mentor:;“Above & beyond our expectations!” is what her clients say regarding Andrea as their Realtor!
