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 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 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!
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 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.
Andrew worked with us in the spring of 2011 during a transfer through work and with his assistance we were successful in the purchase of our newest home. Andrew was patient with our changes in locations and in styles from the Condo and houses in Brentwood Bay to the Townhouse in Cordova Bay to the houses near the University to the homes in Cobble Hill to our eventual purchase of a house in Deer Park in Mill Bay. Andrew went the extra mile to help us – from his private client e-mails of new homes on the market, to his monthly newsletter, to the daily house facts sheets when we were viewing homes, to his getting on the floor to look into heat vents to confirm hardwood flooring, to the purchase price negotiating, to obtaining the numerous documents on our new home, and arriving on the closing day just that little bit earlier to let our carpet cleaner in!! Andrew has a very nice personality and follows up on every request, we couldn’t have asked for more from him and have already referred a family member to work with him. We look forward to his assistance in the future!! Thank you Andrew.
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.
Many thanks for your help with our housing follies! I appreciated your informed & candid approach, and your sensitivity to our needs. Regards, Will
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.
“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
Working with Andrew was a very rewarding experience. I feel that Andrew put my interests first throughout the whole process. We looked at a number of options and I appreciated his honest feedback on each. He did not try to “sell” me on anything; he really wanted to help me find exactly what I was looking for. And I did.
