A superb communicator – obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in the German language, Andrew’s clients will commend his transparent approach, which he believes is paramount to success, facilitating repeat business and client retention.
Creative and eloquent, Andrew attributes much of his business nous to his time spent as owner and operator of several successful book stores. Combining his love of business and literature, these ventures saw him cut his teeth managing both team and business whilst retaining creative control devising literary events and interacting with the local community.
Drawn to residential real estate by his natural affinity to people, and led to Bayleys by their excellent reputation, Andrew thrives on the challenge of creating a plan best suited to his client’s needs. Simply reading his testimonials gives a clear picture that this is a man who goes above and beyond the call of duty for his clients. Incorporating his own practised market knowledge and a strategy to achieve optimum results, is the professional and personal service that aids his success.
Well read, well-travelled, and well-respected, Andrew’s work in the community has impacted many. He is an original founder of Hero, the forerunner to the Auckland Pride Festival, and regularly contributes to local publications. Extensive local knowledge and his broad network of contacts mean that Andrew is at the forefront of the local property market, and certainly an industry expert that should be on your team.
“I highly recommend using Andrew. He is a caring and professional individual. He went out of his way to be available at any time. The only agent who was proactive and always willing to help, buyer or purchaser.”
“…genuinely impressed with you from the very first meeting. We have met so many agents over the past months and I can honestly say your professionalism and people skills have far exceeded all others. We will recommend you to anyone who we know is looking to sell.” – (vendors)
“… thank you for your guidance, patience and making this process such an easy one for what can usually be quite stressful.” - (vendors)
“…thanks again for all of your to-ing and fro-ing on our behalf which has brought about this happy conclusion, and for listening to our particular requirements. Your help facilitating a meeting with our new neighbours was very beneficial and we appreciate all of your assistance. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your friendly and efficient service to family and friends.” - (buyers)
“…approachable, patient and went beyond the call of duty to make us feel comfortable and well informed throughout. We found Andrew a pleasure to work with and would happily recommend him.” – (vendors)
“…our auction went extremely well and we were more than happy with the outcome. It was however on the day of handover that we ran into problems, after 22 years of collecting, we now had to declutter, not coping well and running out of time. Luckily, Andrew had his suspicions that we were struggling to be out in time and arrived mid-morning, proceeding to load his own vehicle several times with property we wished not to go by truck to our new property. After that he helped me clear the loft and organised the short notice arrival of a rubbish removal company. We both agree without his help we would have had huge problems, we sincerely feel he is an attribute to your company.” – (vendors)
To Whom It May Concern
Andrew Rumbles was our lead Real Estate Agent for the sale of our home at 184 Arthur Street, Onehunga and for the purchase of our successor home at the Hereford Apartments, 8 Hereford Street, Freemans Bay.
We found that Andrew consistently embodied the qualities of professional acumen, empathy during times of stress, comprehensiveness and impartiality in his advice, initiative, creativity, tireless advocacy and thoroughness throughout these processes. He succeeded in securing by auction a purchaser offering a million dollars more than we had anticipated for the sale; and an apartment for us to live in whose location and attributes met our requirements admirably at a reasonable price.
We would recommend him to anyone seeking a smooth, effective and optimum sale or purchase of residential property.
