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 strongly would recommend you. We were impressed Andrew, and really appreciated your professionalism and the excellent service you provided. Your honest advice and timing to put our house on the market was right on! The recommendations and suggestions you gave us after the sale were also very helpful to keep focused. We strongly will recommend your services to others in need of an excellent Real Estate Agent.
Andrew, We want to thank you so much for finding our house. Although we looked at many houses together over the course of roughly a year, you stayed patient and kept finding houses on our wish list. Eventually we found the right one and we love it. You were very prompt in getting us viewings and your years of experience were very useful. You showed us many things in houses that we may have overlooked or not noticed at all as first time home buyers. Your easy going professionalism made house hunting a pleasure. We gladly recommend you to anyone looking to deal in real estate.
5 stars. Dependable, quick to respond and professional. We are non-residents and Andrew sold our 2 properties while keeping us updated all the time. Even paid for cleaners out of his own pocket! Highly recommended!
I have had dealing with many realtors over the years, none of which have shown such a great deal of professionalism and honesty as you. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a no hassel buying or selling experience! Thanks again!
Andrew turned our Estate Sale from a heartwrenching whirlpool of sudden loss, into a celebration of life lived with integrity. He advised us to use a pre-inspection to be very open and honest with the condition of the building, to make it easy for buyers to act with confidence. Instead of “staging” to make the house resemble something it was not, we had the windows professionally cleaned to best let it show its strengths, such as the garden view from the kitchen. We just removed the negatives and question marks, such as an uncertified wood stove, and left an inviting blank palette for the new owners. Because of Andrew’s skill at positioning the house to the right buyer, it sold quickly and well over the asking price. I have worked with many Realtors, and the quality I prize most is integrity. In a most difficult emotional environment, Andrew “herded the cats” with a gentle but persuasive hand. He guided us through the dark waters with great integrity, while upholding the dignity of all. Both buyer and seller were happy.

[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.
I would like to take a few minutes to thank-you for your assistance as our agent with the sale of the property. Having bought and sold four homes in the Victoria area over the last 27 years we can honestly say this last experience has without question gone smoother than any other previous sale. I attribute this to how professionally dedicated you are to your career as an Agent. At no time did we ever feel hurried or pressured to make decisions… to the contrary you advised us to move slowly while offering suggestions which made the experience much less stressful and yes at times humorous and enjoyable. This last point I had not noticed in other Agents and was very important to us…. following the acceptance of an unconditional offer while waiting for the completion and possession date you remained in contact ensuring we were still comfortable with our Sale. My past experience was this was the time previous Agents …. disappeared… feeling their obligation to the Client was over… also you always accepted my calls immediately … it never seemed to be a bad time to call. I will recommend your services whenever possible and once again thank-you for a job “well done”
[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.
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.
