Starting his career in a real estate agency at the tender age of 17, Andrew sold his first home within a matter of months. He then went on to spend some years with a firm of Chartered Surveyors fine tuning his house selling skills, but combining it with inside knowledge of construction, structural issues, building faults and problems.
To further expand his career he made the move to Central London where he sold apartments and townhouses in the famous Baker Street and Regents Park areas. Whilst selling properties in the redeveloped Canary Wharf area in London and Kent, his career gained an added angle – he was chosen to present and research a new TV program about his favourite subject “Selling Houses”. Today Selling Houses Australia is the most popular non-sports programs on FOXTEL and is produced by Beyond Productions, with the ninth season to premiere in 2016. The show has won the ASTRA Award for Favourite Program Australia 6 times and has received several TV Week Logie nominations.
