Agent Andrea Deranian offers free interpreting services for Trillium clients in the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community.
A certified interpreter and transliterator, Andrea has worked with the Deaf community for more than 25 years. She has been an ASL interpreter and nationally certified by the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf for more than 15 years.
As she herself puts it, “I love houses and I love interpreting. Putting both of my loves together for the benefit of the Deaf community is a natural idea that’s good for everyone.”
“We’d like to be of better service,” says Linda Lombardini, owner of Trillium with partner, Sandi Smith. “We believe the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community has been underserved in the area of house or condo purchasing and selling.
“I have helped Deaf clients in the past and have always felt inadequate,” she says. “With Andrea’s experience, our service and ability to assist will be strengthened.”
There is no additional cost for the interpreting services for clients who are interested in buying, selling or renting a home through Trillium Real Estate. Also free is Deranian’s help with lenders, inspectors, title insurance providers and the like.
Clients—or those interested in becoming clients—who would like to use this service may contact Andrea by email or through video relay at 866-327-8877 (ask for 734-604-5767).
