Andre is simply the best Realtor we’ve had the experience of working with, and we’ve also had the added benefit of building a great relationship with him over the time spent searchnig for our new home.

From beginning to well beyond our close date, Andre lead us through the process and through obstacles with practical guidance all along the way. He is also very generous with his time, resources, and availability, and went above and beyond to ensure the process was as seamless as possible with each step. 

Andre truly treated us as lifelong clients, and I can’t think of anyone other than him that I would refer for real estate sales and advice.

We approached Andre after he came highly recommended by some close friends, and after our first meeting – we knew we would be in the best of hands. As first time homebuyers we admittedly knew very little about how things worked and were nervous about our first home purchase, but Andre worked with us every step of the way and made this one of the most seamless and stress-free processes. Not only did we have a lot of fun, but we ended up with the perfect home that couldn’t be more right for us! We loved his pressure-free approach to searching for and fiding the right home which put us at ease throughout the whole process.

Andre was always available and very patient as he walked us through many of the in town neighborhoods – starting out with the driving tour. It not only taught us a lot about the area, but we learned some fun history facts as well! He was always quick to reply via email or phone if needed, and as additional properties came on the market.

When it came time to put an offer on the home, I couldn’t believe how easy he made this process. We felt that he always acted with our best interest at heart. From the inspection to closing, Andre made us feel confident in everything that we were doing. I know without a doubt that we wouldn’t have gotten our great home without Andre – he is really the best out there. We would highly recommend Andre for anyone searching for the perfect in-town home.

We bought and sold houses before, but never realized the value of a REALLY good agent. Andre’s knowledge and focus were indispensable. Andre developed a plan to market our home, it sold in less than a day and well above our asking price. He was there to guide us through every step of the process, and we absolutely came out on top. Andre’s passion is infectious, and he is a true joy to work with. He manages difficult situations with grace, and keeps everyone calm when things go awry. We simply couldn’t be happier with our experience and our new home. Thank you, Andre!

Andre is the consummate professional. He is tenacious in finding the perfect house for the perfect price. His client’s interests are his ultimate concern, and he easily navigates the morass of details and challenges that face the buyer with his skills and knowledge. He is readily accessible, and always responds with his customary reassurance and wisdom.

I couldn’t have accomplished what I had hoped to do without Andre’s help. Working on a tight timeline, Andre helped me sell my Midtown condo and find a beautiful Intown home. What I appreciate most about my experience with Andre, is that he is communicative and professional. He guided me along the process and adeptly struck a balance between allowing for my independent decision-making, but also chiming in with his expert knowledge of the market and the process. He made sure that I made smart decisions that I would be happy with in the future. While house-hunting, we walked into the home that I immediately felt was “the one”. Given the nature of the hot market, there were several interested parties bidding on the home within several days. I was concerned that we wouldn’t be able to get it done. The sellers were motivated and cared about a smooth, expeditious closing. The seller’s agent explicitly said that she urged her clients to consider my offer, because she had worked with Andre in the past and trusted that he would get the deal done. Without Andre’s expertise, guidance, and stellar reputation I don’t think I would have landed my beautiful home. I will not hesitate to recommend Andre’s services to my friends, family, or anyone else interested in buying or selling in Atlanta.

Andre is an outstanding real estate agent. He estimated the selling price of our house and delivered on that number at the closing table. He obviously has a deep understanding and passion for houses and it shows when he sells them. He went above and beyond to meet with us on our schedule, accommodate our requests, and always provided up to the minute communication throughout the entire sales process. Turn. Key.

Coming from the Netherlands, we were nervous buying our first house in the US. However, thanks to Andre’s very pleasant attitude and professional guidance the process went smooth and painless. Andre knows the Atlanta market very well and was capable of giving us better, detailed insight in the various in-town neighborhoods, even the ones we thought we knew. Where driving around town showing one house after the other may be a dreadful process to some, Andre made it fun! He is honest and clear about every aspect of the houses and neighborhoods you are interested in, which helped us in our decision-making process. He knows when you are not ready to buy and waits until you feel comfortable to proceed. Whenever we had questions and concerns, Andre was very responsive both during the sales process and after closing. As is the team of professionals he works with! What makes him stand out is that besides his knowledge and professionalism he really invests in building a relationship with his clients; you know you are going to call him for your next transaction. We are very happy in our new home and neighborhood and always recommend people to use Andre de Winter.

Finding a home is an extremely individual experience. There are many agents who are knowledgeable about homes and neighborhoods and Andre is at the top of this list, but no one can learn the skill of connecting with and caring for people the way Andre will do as your agent.  

This was not my first home buying experience and the circumstances surrounding my move were very difficult. I was on a tight timeline under extreme stress. I had started with another agent who just did not seem to appreciate the urgency and we did not “click”. On the contrary, from the moment I first emailed Andre, he always made me feel like his only client (which absolutely was NOT the case) and understood what I was looking for in my next home. He responded promptly to every email and text. He took me to numerous homes and helped me make extremely difficult decisions using his objectivity, yet always with a compassionate understanding of my circumstances. His sincere honesty was not always easy to hear, but was refreshing and ultimately very helpful. 

With a hot market and bidding wars common, I was very uncomfortable with the situation. Andre’s experience, however, kept the process calm under control. When I finally found my house, Andre helped me through each step, from smart and realistic negotiation to a thorough inspection and ultimately successful closing. Everything was completed in such a professional and caring manner. Andre always went beyond what other agents have done for me in the past.

I have no doubt in my mind that if I need another home, Andre will be the first person I call. He is a top agent in every way. His keen understanding of the real estate business combined with his thoughtful and caring approach with clients is simply extraordinary. Although I ended up in a completely different house and area than I thought I wanted, the process Andre took me through and the one he respected I needed to go through myself, helped me see it was the right decision for me and my family. He could not have done that without truly connecting with me and understanding what I needed to create a home. My family is very grateful to our friend for referring us to Andre.

“Andre is a rare exception in an industry not known for its ethical standards, industry expertise or customer service. I have purchased eight houses, the last three of them through Andre. His ethics are beyond reproach, he truly represents his clients. He is extremely knowledgeable about his selected market and won’t hesitate to guide you away from a marginal purchase, something I can’t say about other agents that I have used. In addition, working with Andre is like being invited to an exclusive party, giving you access to houses prior to being listed on the market and providing you with access to his team of top professionals including closing attorneys, inspectors and surveyors. Andre makes the most stressful transaction of your life, the purchase of a house, an enjoyable event, something I never experienced until I purchased a house through him.”

Working with Andre was an absolute pleasure. As a first time home buyer, my fiancé and I were novices when it came to choosing a good neighborhood on a nice street in a good school district. Andre knew the intimate details of each and every neighborhood we explored. He was extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented when it came to the tiniest of details (e.g., checking for new pipes under the house, age of appliances, so on). Additionally, he was very helpful during the negotiations process and made sure he explained all the details in the contracts and recommended appropriate courses of actions. As a result of his efforts, we were able to close on a beautiful home within 3.5 months, start to finish. I have already recommended Andre to two friends, who have experienced the same high-quality service that I did, and I will continue to do so. Thanks for all your help, Andre!
