Andrew believes if you haven’t sold your house within two months then you’re doing something wrong.
Andrew Winter is obsessed with houses. With 25 years experience in the property trade, he believes that if you haven’t sold your house within two months then you’re doing something wrong.
“I’ve seen all different market conditions, met all different types of buyers from the poorest to the richest, met all types of sellers with all different kinds of attitudes, met all different kinds of estate agents, some great, some absolutely awful! Sold luxury homes, dream homes, derelict farm buildings, homes in scary areas, new homes, 400 year old houses and empty land – that’s why I have the confidence to really say I do know what I am talking about when it comes to houses!”
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”. Over the last eleven years the program has gone from strength to strength both in the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries worldwide.
Andrew and his family moved to Australia in 2005 where he went on to establish a boutique real estate agency with his wife. In 2008 the agency was sold to allow for more time for the family and to allow him to focus on his media career. Andrew is best known as the host of the award winning Lifestyle Channel Show “Selling Houses Australia”. Since filming started 6 years ago, the show has won a host of Astra awards, including viewers favourite show, best Lifestyle show and Andrew has scooped the most popular male presenter award.
When he’s not busy making TV, Andrew is a property columnist for News Ltd appearing in publications Australia wide. He is also a sought after presenter on the public speaking circuit, and operates a consultancy helping people sell their homes all across Australia.
Andrew also writes a monthly blog about real estate and advice on selling your home, as well as answering questions from LifeStyle viewers & website members.... Read more.
