Andrew Buss, JD., MBA

Andrew brings a dynamic skill set to Hilton & Hyland and the David Kramer Group.

Prior to working as a real estate agent, Andrew enjoyed a successful career as an attorney handling real estate, business, and litigation matters, including real estate transactions, eminent domain/condemnation cases, and commercial loan workouts.  He also worked abroad as a professor teaching legal courses to French law students at the Université D’Auvergne, École de Droit in Clermont-Ferrand, France. He holds a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree, a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), and a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. His legal background and experience helps Andrew provide excellent service to his clients, including in matters related to contracts and negotiations – two key aspects of any real estate transaction.

Andrew understands that buying or selling a home is a very substantial and emotionally involved transaction that requires the utmost level of diligence and care from an agent. With that in mind he approaches each client as an advocate, advisor, educator, and friend. He works very hard and believes that operating in an ethical and straight forward fashion is a fundamental principle of the real estate business. He understands that residential real estate is a dynamic and highly nuanced field, especially in the Los Angeles area where there are many unique sub-markets, and he works hard to stay abreast of the market trends.

Andrew grew up in the Detroit suburbs and brings a Midwest work ethic to the business. He has a true appreciation for the LA climate and all it offers. He played golf in college and continues to play whenever he can. He enjoys many other activities including running, paddle tennis, biking, and anything else outdoors.

*DISCLAIMER: Andrew no longer practices law, does not hold a California law license, and does not practice law in California. He acts solely in his capacity as a realtor. As such, Andrew does not provide legal advice and no attorney-client relationship exists between Andrew and clients or other parties.

“David and Andrew, you and your team were excellent communicators. You followed our intentions, counseling us in our decisions, and provided us with a highly polished marketing strategy. This gave us the validation that we all did our best to seek out the right buyers. Everyone on your team was professional, informed, respectful, and eager to assist in any way they could. We could not have asked for a better experience selling our home.”
— Diana Mack, Pacific Palisades, CA
“Thank you. Without what you, Andrew, and Hilton & Hyland did for us we would likely be without a buyer --- and even if we had one could be without a closing. I just ended a Zoom cocktail meeting with 5 of our close friends and sang your praises. They were suitably impressed (and are sure to tell all of their friends too). We look forward to having this chapter in our lives behind us, but you and Andrew made it a very good chapter – despite the global pandemic.”
— Robert G. Krupka | Krupka Law Group, P.C.
“David Kramer and Andrew Buss (as well as everyone on David’s incredible team) were fantastic. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They were energetic, professional, sophisticated, sensible, flexible, resourceful, and sensitive to my family’s needs at a very difficult time. They were also thoughtful, using their considerable experience and expertise to formulate what turned out to be a fabulously successful marketing plan for my parents’ house. What’s more, they were terrific communicators, always available to answer any and every question, and explain their reliably persuasive thinking. I will always be grateful for the role they played in settling my parents’ estate, and would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them again.”
— Susan Lewis
