There was no question in our mind that we would hire Andrew to sell our condo when the time was right. Andrew was our real estate agent first (when we initially purchased the condo) but we now count ourselves lucky to consider him a friend. Andrew is everything someone would look for in a real estate agent - friendly, honest, and hardworking (among other things). We feel he has a genuine interest in the work he does and a good handle on the market conditions at any given time. We appreciated his realistic outlook and knew he would be candid with us throughout the process. Although the condo was sold in a matter of weeks (and closed in just over a month), Andrew had the patience over the last 2 years to answer any and all questions we had about timing and process. In the end, he exceeded our expectations
He made himself very accessible throughout the entire process. This was especially important given that we were doing this from a distance. We felt that he wwas realistic in our expectations - which is something we really appreciate. He went the extra mile to work with us on having the property listed so quickly after it was vacated and even arranged for and facilitated the required repairs after inspection. In the end, his persistence in following up with an interested party was what landed us a sale. He had the good sense to know the right timing and approach with the buyer's agent. His calmness throughout gave us peace of mind.

We first contacted Andrew to show us a condo; that was about 5 years ago. Since then Andrew showed us such support and has such a professional approach and so much obvious energy and love for his work that we knew it was the right decision to place our home sale in his capable hands.
We most enjoyed Andrew's energy level; his love of the job; his knowledge of the industry and his good advice. All of this led to our house being sold 4 weeks to the day it went on the market. We were so happy as many other houses within blocks of us were not selling, and most are still on the market.

After many years as home-owners, we were considering downsizing from a house to a condo. We did an internet search, and Andrew's name kept on coming up - over and over! Everywhere we looked, he was noted to be knowledgeable and interested in doing the best job possible. At our first meeting, he was very straight-forward, and outlined all that he could (and would) do for us as we got back into the property market.
Andrew did his utmost to "pre-select" condos that would be of interest to us. He took the time to listen to what we were saying, and made (mental) notes as we went through the first few properties. In no time at all, we were shown a variety of properties that 'ticked the boxes'. There was no heavy sales pressure - just a commitment to find the right place for us when it came along. In addition, Andrew was able to facilitate the sale of our house. He managed the impossible, and sold our house at asking price before it went on the market. We couldn't have asked for more!

The reason we hired Andrew to sell our home was because of his professional demeanour and several years experience in the Halifax Real Estate Market. He is kind, and easy to work with. Also when it counts he is more than competent negotiator for his clients.
He had a streamlined approach to selling our home including a home stager and professional photographer, which made it easy to list and sell our home quickly.

We hired Andrew because he is competent and knowledgable about the condo market.
Andrew is highly approachable, friendly, and reasonable when facing the challenges of selling one's home. He's also up to date on all the modern methods of marketing and an effective sales person.

"I really appreciated his up front approach--no gimmicks, no hidden agenda. He sat down with me and told me his approach and what to expect. I also liked his perseverance and cool-headed patience, especially when dealing with difficult potential buyers. This also worked well with my purchase, as no question was unimportant. Every one was answered. His feedback on a timely basis was also appreciated. I didn't expect or want constant texting or messaging, but I did want to hear when there was something to say or deal with, and he did this very well."
"My purchase went smoothly, and he went to bat for me when I needed it. Going through the new unit for final inspection was a nice bonus. He could notice things I wouldn't necessarily pick up on. Job well done!"
June O'Brien, buyer and seller, 2015
