    Andrea Thompson - Sales Associate


I bring the same commitment to real estate that I brought to my 30-year entertainment career in film and television. My credits include JAG, 24 and 4 seasons on ABC’s award-winning police drama NYPD Blue as Detective Jill Kirkendall. I'm an accomplished journalist and worked as a breaking news reporter for CBS News. Following that, I was the lead prime time anchor for CNN Headline News and covered the events of 9/11 and the tragic destruction of the World Trade Center. 

Following CNN, I joined Court TV. I had the honor of working with First Lady Laura Bush assisting her literacy program. In addition, my duties for the cable network included outreach on behalf of Court TV's child empowerment and anti-bias initiatives. I also represented the network in its recognition of women in law enforcement. 

After successful careers in entertainment and journalism I felt it was time to shake up my life, try my hand at something new. Since real estate has always been a passion, I began my third career in real estate in Los Angeles 18 years ago. The skills that are necessary for success in entertainment are crucial in real estate; clearly communicating, listening to your concerns, creating the best strategy for negotiations, and moving to a successful close. Working always in my clients’ best interests gives me great personal satisfaction. It’s a pleasure to educate and assist you in making your best financial decision and to help you find joy and quality of life in Mexico.  I'm here to help you find the property that reflects your life and personality.

I'm a proud Vallartense, and I have an incredibly beautiful life with my family here in Puerto Vallarta. I’m a member of AMPI, the Mexican Real Estate Association and I am CONOCER certified by the government of Mexico. I’m a former member of the National Association of Realtors and the California Association of Realtors.
