"Professional, Experienced & Measured. I was fortunate to have Andrew represent me as both a buyer and seller's Real Estate Agent in the high-end condo market in Halifax. As a buyer’s representative, Andrew took the time to understand my needs and presented a good cross-section of the market, pointing out the important quality of life and investment considerations that ultimately resulted in the acquisition of a condo that I was very happy with. I never felt any bias or pressure on Andrew’s part on property selection but at the same time, he was not afraid to point out important metrics that perhaps I wasn’t considering or placing enough emphasis on.
On listing my condo, Andrew worked collaboratively with me to develop a marketing plan that he executed flawlessly, showcasing my property to the right buyers across a wide spectrum of advertising vehicles, resulting in multiple offers and a completed transaction above the listing price. Finally, with respect to negotiations, which can be very emotional, Andrew’s experience and measured style were quite helpful in focusing on the task at hand and thinking through the various options and financial outcomes. Buying/selling your home/condo is one of the most important and stressful transactions in your lifetime, so it’s critical to have professional representation. Andrew Perkins has my full endorsement."
Bob Macminn - Condo Seller & Buyer

Making the process a breeze. Stellar customer service! Look forward to working together again soon."
Krista Vey - Condo Seller
"We have very specific needs. As we were looking to buy/sell a condo we knew that Andrew was one of the best-known realtors for condos and we were confident in his knowledge in the Halifax condo market. We also knew Andrew from working together in the past and already knew he was the person that we wanted to help us in the process.
Andrew has a really easy-going, pressure-free attitude but also comes across as really knowledgeable. He has the perfect demeanour for helping people through what can be one of the most stressful things you can go through. He was always calm, patient and really quick to answer our numerous questions."
Anna & Trevor Delaney - Condo Sellers & Condo Buyers.
"Andrew has a wealth of experience and knowledge selling condos and properties in the downtown core, which I found indispensable
Andrew is extremely accommodating even with small things such as picking up keys, doing house checks, etc. He really goes the extra mile and makes the process easy for someone trying to sell a property from out of town."
George Philip, Condo Seller
"After knowing Andrew for several years, and sharing a seat on our condo board with him we were 100% certain that he was the right choice. Andrew has always been extremely professional, approachable and dependable and I knew he would treat the sale of our condo as a top priority.
My husband and I greatly appreciated how efficient and responsive Andrew was to every and all concerns we had. Andrew is extremely knowledgeable about knowing the market, especially in regard to the optimal list time and price point. Andrew made the process seamless from minimizing the work on our end to ensuring viewings were scheduled at the best times for us, executing a successful open house and facilitating an offer within two weeks of listing."
JP & Laura King - Condo Sellers
"When I first purchased my condo I did some research to find out who knew about condos. I kept finding Andrew’s name. Andrew helped us examine thoughtfully all the options available and guided us through the painless purchase of a great condo. So now, 7 years later, when we decided it was time to sell the condo and buy a house, I never considered calling anyone else (although I have good friends who are real estate agents!) I knew selling the condo would be the more challenging transaction, and Andrew knows condos better than anyone! When it came to guiding us through the things to consider in our house purchase, again Andrew skillfully and objectively coached us and now we are happily ensconced in a house we love."
Charlene Boyce & Todd Denton - Condo Sellers, Homebuyers
"I can't thank Andrew enough for his hard work and professionalism. Sold our house quickly and made our dream house a reality. We highly recommend him."
Matt and Emily Hirtle - Home sellers, Home Buyers
"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 was 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."
Brian and Christine Black - Condo sellers
"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."
Gail and Greg Grey - Home Sellers, Condo Buyers
"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 finding 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!"
Gord Gubitz and Donald Stevens - Home Sellers, Condo Buyers
"The reason we hired Andrew to sell our home was because of his professional demeanour and several years of experience in the Halifax Real Estate Market. He is kind, and easy to work with. Also when it counts he is more than a 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."
Phil and Sarah Davis - Home Sellers
"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 salesperson."
Paul and Heather - Condo Sellers
I really appreciated his upfront 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 the final inspection was a nice bonus. He could notice things I wouldn't necessarily pick up on. Job well done!"
