Hello! I have delighted in helping clients achieve their real estate goals in the Victoria area since 2006 and am grateful to live and work in this beautiful city. Through a results-oriented approach and by leveraging the best systems, tools and techniques, I work to ensure my clients remain well-informed and highly successful in making the best real estate decisions. I take pride in my work and am dedicated to providing the kind of exceptional service and guidance I myself would appreciate if buying or selling a home for the first time. My intention is to streamline the process and protect my clients from complications, so their experience is hassle-free from start to finish. My services are client-focused, informative, and provided in a friendly and easy-going manner, yet I’m firm and assertive when protecting and promoting client’s interests in their negotiations. Over the years, I have curated a set of effective and quality marketing materials and service providers to share with my clients. Much of my business these past years is through repeat and referred customers but I’m always happy to welcome new clients.
What my clients are saying…
[We] are still thrilled about our home. I am surprised at how happy I am here. It is the first place we have lived that truly feels like our home – and not just because we bought it 🙂 – it just feels right.
[We] are moved in to our new condo and are very happy and excited. We are also happy and relieved we were able to get moved in before our baby’s arrival. Thank you for your excellent work in helping to make this happen for us. We really appreciate your advice, time and support.
Regarding the sale of my former home, I recall: – the sale was handled with the utmost professional care and consideration – the listing was very quickly and accurately produced, to maximize the potential of the house – you kept me fully informed, and in a timely fashion, of the progress of the sale, the offers, and the closing of the sale – you advised me of all considerations with the house and sale, and worked with me to secure my terms (such as the closing in the January of the new year, the handling of the tenants who were in the house) I am absolutely delighted with the sale of the house and the service that you provided in that sale.
We were both pleased with the way that things panned out on both our purchase and our sale. We thought that you were respectful about our input but were open to telling us when you disagreed with our direction and why. Selling a home is an emotional experience and we appreciated your ability to manage our emotions to allow us to make the most appropriate financial decisions for our circumstances.
“In the spring of 2017 we presented to Andrew a challenging real estate opportunity. The house we were selling was in poor condition and we wanted to sell the house and property as essentially a property only sale. Andrew viewed the property, gave some very constructive feedback, and came up with a few selling strategies to move the property and get us into another property of our choosing. We were immediately inundated with buyers and had some solid offers on our property. Unfortunately the buyers and us had some unforeseen issues with the municipality and bylaws enforcing new building codes that made developing this piece of property beyond the reasonable costs of several developers that were interested. This did not deter Andrew and we were very impressed on how quickly he re-evaluated and changed his selling and marketing strategy to an earlier one he thought would work better. This included a thorough house inspection, listing the known developer issues with the property, and exposing the property to a different group of clientele focusing more on the house and the properties potential. Sometimes you should listen more to your Realtor, but it was nice Andrew always listened to us. The amount of viewings dropped significantly, but the type of clientele interested in the property change significantly as well. Soon after changing our marketing strategy we had a solid offer and sale of the house and property. Andrew also acted as our Realtor when it came to buying our new house. We gave him some general guidelines as to what we wanted and the showings began. I found we were buying in a sellers’ market and to get what we wanted, we had to be smart and aggressive. Again Andrew exposed us to a variety of properties, explaining the pros and cons of each from our perspective. Finally in December we found the house we wanted. Andrew was on vacation in another country and with one email another Realtor from Home’s Realty stepped in, familiar with our needs, and negotiated the initial deal on his behalf. It was seamless from our perspective. As the possession date approached the sellers needed to extend their closing date. Again with one email, Andrew negotiated with both the buyers of our property and the sellers of property we were buying to make everything transition smoothly. At no time did I not have my concerns addressed promptly, his professionalism, hard work, and experience backed by his team made a difficult and sometimes frustrating experience palatable. We highly recommend Andrew without hesitation and thank him for the successful effort he made on our behalf.” Sincerely DH & PDBB
The service Andrew extended to my husband and myself was outstanding. Firstly, he gave sound, factual advice on the current market situation in Victoria, and then kept us informed on a regular basis despite the challenges of long distance negotiations. He calmly handled several trying situations that arose while we were renovating the property. Andrew was very patient, always answered his cell phone or returned our calls promptly. He is also very diplomatic and respectful of our opinions. We have dealt with several realtors, and I must say that Andrew is the ultimate professional and, from 2,118 miles away, we give him our highest recommendation.
Andrew is clearly an amazing realtor and very respected by his colleagues and clients. He is easy to talk to and fun to be around.
Thank you so much for all of your help. Your walking me through each step made it a very straight forward process and your kind approach turned a scarey feat into a dream. I will certainly recommend you to my friends.
Andrew has supported us with our real estate needs for 3 years. He has been consistently informed and managed our affairs with integrity. What I appreciate most about Andrew is that he is highly responsive and has taken the time to get to know our specific needs and tastes. When he calls with a listing, we know it’s going to be right in line with what we’re looking for.
