Testimonials

We met Andrew Smith through Zillow, while looking for reasonably priced living space in Riverside.

From the first look and through the negotiations that followed, Andrew guided us expertly every step of the way.  In the high pressure environment of todays real estate transactions, we could not have had a more understanding and patient representative.  Even post-closing, Andrew made himself available to us at any time we needed further information. 

Knowledge of the local market, sincerity, civility and patience are among Andrew’s many positive attributes.  We’ll be sure to ask Andrew to act on our behalf again if we ever decide on a future sale or purchase in this area.

We moved to Greenwich from NYC. Andrew is very resourceful, super responsive, and with great local knowledge. This was our first time buying a house, and Andrew was great at guiding us in the right direction. As we were new to the city, he took the time to show us around Greenwich while pointing out neighborhoods which were meeting our criteria. Even though we encountered several issues during the process, Andrew was very patient, committed, and excellent at problem-solving. Andrew helped us navigate a difficult time buying a house! Andrew truly went above and beyond!

We would highly recommend Andrew to anyone buying a home! We were connected to Andrew through Erick's mom, who lives in Andrew's neighborhood and has known him for years. We were in NYC, looking to make the move to the suburbs for our first home. We were very specific in our search in that we wanted to live close to town, the train and restaurants - all while remaining on budget and ensuring we saw long-term value in the home. We gave Andrew no easy task, but he rose to the occasion and helped us find the perfect home! He was so speedy in the entire process, which was essential to getting a home in a prime location amidst a hot market with multiple over-ask offers. He was so accommodating to our schedules and always made himself available for a call. During closing, Andrew went above and beyond to handle various vendors and coordinate a smooth, mainly virtual, closing process since we were still in the city with busy schedules. When asked, he gave us his honest and open perspective -- and always gave us our time to make decisions. We are so grateful to have worked with such a hard-working and genuine agent and we're loving our first home!

After going through our housing search, Andrew Smith is someone that I would recommend immediately to anyone looking to buy a house. We were introduced to Andrew through a mutual friend. Andrew first met us at Coffee for Good to sit down and discuss what we were looking for in our search. He was extremely attentive and really got to know us. 
 
This housing market was extremely competitive and we were on a timeline with a baby on the way. Andrew came ready to attack it. When we got into the negotiation, Andrew provided such clear context with a true analytical background understanding the neighborhood, comps, and emotional value. His research and knowledge was very impressive. It felt true team effort with clear lines of communication walking us through every step of the process. 
 
I couldn’t appreciate his open communication and thoughtfulness more. Without Andrew, we would not have secured the house we will be raising our growing family in. Andrew is an unbelievable resource. He truly goes above and beyond.

Andrew has been incredible.  He helped us through an incredibly tough time, that was made more stressful because we had to find somewhere to live!

He took the time to find out what we needed, and he visited and pre-vetted all of the houses before we went to see them, to save us from wasting time. He researched everything and was able to answer questions that he knew we needed answering.  Nothing was as an inconvenience to him.  I would recommend him to everyone I know.

Everyone is looking for something unique to their liking when looking for a place to live. I like old victorian houses  with high ceilings and very intricate architecture. My wife loves ranches and modern style homes. God could not have matched us with a better person than Andrew when we needed a real estate agent.  We met him through Zillow and he contacted us right away. He took the time to find out what our preferences were and showed us around different areas of Greenwich and Stamford. 
We could not have found a more patient, friendly, knowledgeable and kind real estate agent with a great sense of humour. We checked so many houses and every single time his honest opinion mattered to us. With his guidance we finally found a home that we both could enjoy for years to come.

From the moment we met Andrew, it was clear that he was the answer to finding what we wanted in Greenwich. 

After several hit and miss attempts with other agents, Andrew quickly internalized what we were looking for and put a great list of viable properties together.  In one afternoon, we found the exact house we wanted and made an offer.

But more importantly, Andrew is more than a great real estate agent. He is an amazing resource who goes far beyond the call of duty to ensure that you have access to all of the resources in the community.  Andrew connected us with tennis clubs, park passes, dealerships, pet care and more.

It was all totally turn key.   Highly recommend!

Andrew helped us to lease our 1800 sq. ft. commercial property in central Greenwich.  Andrew is knowledgeable, has a good sense of the market, and is hardworking and professional. He is a pleasure to work with and made the process very easy with his excellent communications and calm manner. Our family highly recommends him as a realtor!

Andrew was helping us come up with comps for a house that we were thinking about making a bid on. Andrew was incredibly detail oriented. He walked us thru each line, he explained his reasoning for including it and was spot on in his analysis. He has great knowledge of the Greenwich area and doesn't try to sell you anything but inform you. I can't speak more highly of my interaction with him.

We moved to Greenwich from the West Coast.  We had very little idea what Greenwich was like, where we wanted to live, and where to even begin.  Thank goodness we were introduced to Andrew!  He helped us from Step Zero and made the long-distance a non-issue for us.  He first helped us find a rental while we were still living on the West Coast and eventually helped with our home purchase in Riverside. 

He struck the right balance between letting us drive the decision-making process and adding his advice when we needed it.  He was very easy to talk to, always available, respectful, and professional.  He was also just fun to be around!  He drove us through various neighborhoods, helped with our decision to first rent, helped us decide on a target area, and finally helped us find the home.  The home we ended up purchasing was one Andrew encouraged us to see the value and potential and he even brought an architect to see the home with us.  Through Andrew's help, we ended up buying the house under the list price even in this crazy market! 

Andrew is resourceful, responsive, patient, and considerate and he continues to help us with questions we have with our renovations.  He has become a great friend to us and our family.  We are excited to move into our new home and are very thankful for Andrew's guidance and expertise!

Andrew helped us find our first home! Not only did he make it easy as first-time buyers, but he went out of his way to listen to all of our wants and needs….he even met us during a huge storm!

Our house at the time was not available for showings. The day it was available, Andrew was on top of it and had us in within a day! This house hit all of our needs and definitely checked off a lot of our wants plus more. We absolutely love our new home and could not be happier!

Andrew made the process fun and exciting. We shared many laughs. Andrew was very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely easy to get along with. He was also very easy to get a hold of, even when he was out of town.

I would definitely work with Andrew in the future and recommend him!

Thank You Andrew!!

Let’s talk about Andrew Smith. I met Andrew at an apartment showing, the area was marginal, so we sat and chatted for quite awhile.  Andrew kept asking me WHAT I wanted, regarding rentals, locations, safety factors (I live alone). His concerns were so genuine, authentic, and he can handle obstacles without blinking. I walked away from our first meeting feeling as though we have known each for a long time. Andrew really cares!

After finding a fabulous rental, Andrew fought for me (I have not been employed for 3.5 years, had been taking care of my mother, who passed away a month before meeting Andrew). This guy fought hard for me, the landlords sons were overly cautious, but Andrew handled everyone with finesse and dignity. I have to keep reminding myself it’s a rental… not a purchase. So it has worked out and I move this week into my new digs. So one in one year,  I most certainly will be using Andrew Smith to help me find a new permanent home, a purchase!!!

I can’t say enough great things about Andrew. Yes he is smart, yes he is reliable, yes he is honest, yes he is persistent, yes he has an incredible work ethic….One cup of coffee and 5 minutes chatting with Andrew… well…. you tell me., !!!  Greatest agent and now a friend! Lucky me!!!

Andrew recently helped us purchase our very first home and we could not be more excited.  He made the process as smooth as possible, particularly in this crazy market.  There was so much interest in the house but somehow Andrew was able to keep us at the bargaining table. He may be "new" to the industry, but he dedicated so much time to researching the specifics of each house we toured, so that we could make an informed decision that we felt comfortable with.  His attitude and excitement balanced with his ability not to make us feel pressured is something I hope everyone can experience with a real estate broker.  Houlihan Lawrence is lucky to have such a great asset on their team!

Working with Andrew to find a small office space was a positive and easy experience. Despite having no prior experience with commercial properties, I was confident that Andrew’s background, personality, resourcefulness, and critical thinking would yield good options for me. I was right! Furthermore, Andrew was responsive, professional, and respectful of my time as he thoughtfully managed the search and lease process from start to finish.
