He is a licensed nursing home administrator in the state of Rhode Island and a member of the Rhode Island Health Care Association. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration.

Andrea Belanger PHOTO: Residential Real Estate

Residential property name Belanger

Residential Properties Ltd. announced the addition of Broker Associate Andrea Belanger to the team of real estate professionals at RPL’s Providence office. In addition to providing listing services, broker price opinions, buyer advice and more, Andrea RPL brings her love of southern New England and her enthusiasm for its history and architecture.

bands and brands

Born in Fall River, Andrea is a native of New England. “We’re privileged to experience the best that each season has to offer,” Belanger said. “Life on the East Coast is different than anywhere else in the country.” She is the daughter of a carpenter and a real estate agent, to whom she credits much of her professionalism and work ethic. However, she came to her current career in a unique way through rock ‘n’ roll. “Music and real estate may seem worlds apart, but my time as a touring and recording musician has shaped who I am as a broker – creative, imaginative, sensitive and determined,” Belanger noted. “Being the only woman and leader of a six-piece rock band right out of college was a bit like cat-herding! Real estate can be similar; It is a balancing act of meeting deadlines and deadlines, as well as extreme focus and coordination.”

As an agent, Andrea was determined to work with a brokerage firm that was willing to meet her needs as a marketer, strategist, lender, inspector and appraiser. Their research revealed that RPL has the strongest market share on the East Side and the most impressive brand presence. “I’ve had my eye on residential real estate since I got admitted in 2016,” Belanger said. “The company is a force of nature here in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. You can hardly drive down a street in Providence without seeing the iconic sign,” Belanger added. “When I bought my home on the East Side last fall, I knew I was looking for a brand change.

A new appearance

Another value Andrea’s father passed on was giving back to the community. She was raised by volunteers with her father, who was founding president of the Narrows Center for the Arts, a non-profit organization dedicated to the visual and performing arts that played a significant role in her becoming a musician. Other community initiatives include their involvement in conservation. “During the pandemic, and although we are both Rhode Island residents, my father and I were board members of the Fall River Preservation Society,” Belanger said. “The protection of historical monuments and creative subsequent use are very important to me as a person and as a broker. I recently joined the Summit Neighborhood Association as its newest board member and look forward to participating in their mission to serve our East Side community.”

With her partner Shawn, an 11-year-old cat named Beethoven, and a year-old Bluetick Coonhound named Juniper, Andrea spends her free time renovating their 18th-century East Side farmhouse with her father. Her hope is to build an urban homestead that combines her love of historic preservation and sustainability. As she begins her new venture with RPL, Andrea looks forward to bringing not only her talents but genuine trust to her clients. “I look forward to becoming a larger community resource as a broker and seeing my relationship with this space change and grow over time!” said Belanger. “At the core of my business is a desire to prepare my clients with the education they need to make confident and informed decisions unique to their goals. Whether it’s navigating through multiple listing situations or a laser-focused listing strategy, I always have my clients’ best interests in mind. I think real estate, like music, is all about the personal connections we make along the way.”
