Andre was invaluable for the sale of our Virginia Highlands home. We had moved out of state when we put the house on the market. This required a real estate agent who could provide a turn-key sales solution. Andre did that in spades. From our initial contact with Andre, we were confidant we had found the agent who could coordinate lots of moving parts and move the property on an aggressive timeline. From listing price to closing terms, Andre provided us excellent counsel throughout the sales process. He is a dedicated and responsive professional that has deep understanding of the Atlanta intown market.
I did not think he could do it. Houses don’t sell in a day. Another agent told me a price that was much lower then Andre recommended. But he said he would sell my home in a few days so I needed to find the condo I was looking for as soon as possible. Andre delivered on his promise.
Andre is a very professional agent who wants to make this difficult transition a positive one for his clients. He has a thorough knowledge of the Atlanta market and took the time to show me other homes before setting the price. He helped me understand what I needed to do to prepare my home for sale. At the same time, he helped me look at condos to purchase, always respectful of my price range and desire for amenities in the building. He knew every neighborhood, was prepared with condos to show me, knew each building, and helped me use a critical eye when looking at them to envision what they could be, and what they would not turn out to be.
I cannot thank him enough for his attention to detail and always being available and engaged when we needed to resolve issues. Already I have recommended him to other friends. Although I would use Andre again, I don’t plan on moving anytime soon.
After living and renting homes overseas for 20 years, the prospect of moving back to the US and buying a home in Atlanta (not our hometown) was daunting. Andre made our transition a lot less stressful. He listened to our preferences and commute requirements, and we were able to find a wonderful home in the best location for everyone in the family. We took full advantage of Andre’s extensive knowledge of Atlanta.
Andre “held our hand” throughout the closing process and was always available and responsive when we had questions. His wide contact network in Atlanta gave us invaluable resources when it was time to contact movers, painters, contractors etc. His work contacts are just as trustworthy and efficient as he is.
We hope to be in Atlanta for a long, long time. But should plans change and we relocate again, we will certainly rely on Andre to sell our home.
We needed to sell our current house in Ormewood Park and find a new house in Decatur, and needed someone to walk us through the logistics of how to do so as seamlessly as possible; Andre’s expertise was indispensable in helping us do just that. Even though our current house was likely on the lower end of Andre’s typical selling point, he utilized every resource he had available, correctly predicting that if we followed his advice (which we did), our house would sell quickly. Our old house was under contract on the same day it was listed, and we were able to negotiate to close on both our old and new houses on the same day, making for a perfect transition with busy work schedules and two young children in tow. All of the contacts Andre works with (and whom he referred to us to help with both the purchase and sale) are top notch, and Andre will do whatever is necessary to make the deal close. We appreciated that he was always accessible, at almost any hour of day or night — he is clearly a hard working agent and it shows in the results he is able to achieve. Although we hope to not move again anytime in the near future, if it should ever prove necessary, we would not hesitate to call Andre to help us once again!
Andre was an amazing resource as we navigated the process of buying our first home. He took a sincere interest in our current and future needs. He was readily available by phone nearly any time of day to answer questions about mortgages, inspections, negotiating, closing, and all of the other unfamiliar aspects of the first-time homebuying process. He taught us to focus on homes that not only appealed to us now, but also had universal appeal should we need to sell quickly in the future. He was knowledgeable about all of the in-town neighborhoods, and would often alert us to a future listing before it hit the market. He continues to be a resource to us as first-time homeowners. We could not be happier with our new home, our new neighborhood, and our experience working with Andre.
Andre makes the entire process easy for his clients; whether you are buying or selling, or both simultaneously. He handles everything and has detailed knowledge of the Atlanta market so that you can maximize the sale of your home as well as get the best deal possible when buying. Andre sold our home in under 3 weeks! He is extremely detail oriented, as well as very organized. No time is wasted when he takes you out to go look at homes, he has everything programmed into his GPS, and is not trying to locate a property or an itinerary on the fly. When we first met Andre and asked him to be our Realtor, we did not know that we would also be getting a friend. I would recommend Andre to anyone, whether it is your fist time buying a home, or you are looking for your last dream home. He is top notch and always has his client’s best interest in hand. He will remain my realtor for life.
“Moving is always a trying experience even if, as in our case, we’ve done it two dozen times. Thanks to Andre De Winter, however, the task of finding our place in Atlanta was enjoyable, efficient, and most important, a success in buying not just a house but a home. Andre’s knowledge of the market, wise counsel on current opportunities and options, understanding of his clients’ needs, and business as well as negotiations skills represented the best in a Realtor’s assistance and counsel. At the end of the day, a home purchase is always a combination of a highly personal as well as a business transaction. Andre brings his experience and knowledge to his clients in a way that assists them in both aspects of the task. The result creates a professional relationship that is also tailored to meet his clients’ individual needs. Andre’s skills and integrity are obvious. It’s also clear that he values his clients and treats them as friends. We recommend him highly to anyone moving in the Atlanta metro market. Our experience testifies to why Andre remains at the very top of Atlanta’s list of the very best real estate agents.”
My wife and I purchased our first home with no agent on either side, and hadn’t considered the advantages of working with a well-connected professional. We enlisted Andre’s help for the sale of our home and purchase of our second home. He is an exceptional agent, and opened our eyes to how much less stressful a home purchase can be. Within 24 hours of our first meeting, Andre said he found our future home. Honestly, we were skeptical. But, when he pulled into the driveway, our eyes lit up knowing he had delivered on his promise. And, in the confusing process of home buying and selling, that’s what we needed: someone who would deliver on his promises. Andre really brings the goods when it comes to knowing the local market, what sells, what doesn’t, who to get involved when things need tweaking… soup to nuts. He makes the whole process easy. We couldn’t be more satisfied with our experience with Andre, and we love our new home.
We were so fortunate to have Andre as our agent guiding us as we bought our first home in the US. He was extremely knowledgeable about the housing market, the best neighborhoods for us, restaurants, hot spots, the culture of each community, and the pros and cons of every house we looked at. There is a reason why he is the best at what he does, and that is simply the fact that he is genuinely invested in understanding your needs and working night and day to find you the perfect home at the right price in the best location. The experience of finding and purchasing our first home was actually fun and relatively painless because of his great attitude and connections in the community. Even after our purchase, Andre continues to follow up with us on the little things we can do to make our taxes less, or properly value go up! We would trust him again and again to help us buy or sell a home.
It is rare that you emerge from a real estate transaction feeling as though you owe your agent more than their allotted commission, but that is indeed the case for us with Andre de Winter. From beginning to end, working with Andre was simply a joy. He delivered on every commitment, regularly going above and beyond our expectations, with a level of personal service we had never experienced in the past. Whether it was his knowledge of the neighborhood, the pricing of our home, the staging and gorgeous pictures his team delivered or his handling of the negotiations (after receiving multiple offers), he made the process of selling our home almost effortless, which meant everything, given we had moved to New York and were not in the area to handle the details ourselves. We had heard rave reviews about Andre, and are proud to add ours to his long list of accolades. If you are looking for an agent who will be an incredibly professional yet personal partner at your side when you buy or sell your home, look no further!
