Andrew was immersed in the world of tech at an early age and began to work on global technology networking projects after being recruited by Investment Banking at Scotiabank at the age of 18, while still at the University of Toronto studying computer science. These projects took him around Europe and the USA and sparked a lifelong fascination with technology and automation. Shortly afterward he began to work on the internet, well before the days of google, while working at Nortel on their global infrastructure. After a series of ever more increasing hardware-based tech company challenges Andrew ran Canadian systems engineering, designing and supporting partners in South America and Canada for Silicon Valley start-ups until 1999.
After a multi-year hiatus in the sunny south Andrew re-entered the business world and built a tech-based virtual office business back in his hometown of Toronto. This experience ingrained a commitment to one-to-one client service and a new-found love of digital marketing. After building the business to record revenues he sold the business and his properties and made the permanent move west to Victoria with his family seeking a more casual lifestyle with a deeper connection to nature.
Throughout his business career Andrew always had a love of real estate and has owned homes in Canada from lake country to ski country, as well as oceanfront and golf course properties in the US and the Caribbean. Andrew is always happy to discuss property markets and strategy with clients. He considers himself less transaction oriented and more consultative in nature.
As a professional mortgage broker, Andrew can provide a unique insight into the market and is a great resource to his clients. With a strong digital marketing background he oversees property marketing program design himself, including managing the digital content strategy and delivery on various key platforms. With his technology, property finance, marketing and client service backgrounds Andrew continues to be an invaluable resource to his clients.
Drawing on personal and business experience from some of the fastest paced cities in the world he is keenly aware of the urgency and the expectations of his busy clients. Andrew often works with clients moving to or investing in Victoria as he is familiar with the expected level of responsiveness.
