Real Estate Investor,
Andrew is a very proud husband and father of two beautiful children.
He is a successful global property investor and is proud to say that his time is his own and therefore he has flexibility to do the things that he wants.
” From a young age I have always believed that Property is the way forward as you have the ability to earn cashflow from Day 1 as well as benefit from Capital Growth and on top of that we can leverage a lot more than what you can from other investments “
Let’s just rewind the clock…
Andrew has always been entrepreneurial, from delivering newspapers in his local area at the age of 12 to starting his first business – a Sound Engineering Company – at the ripe age of 15!
From a young age Andrew always knew that Property was the way forward. He bought his first investment property in Durban at the age of 21 and when he sold it for 3 times the amount that he paid 3 years later, this sparked his interest in property investments.
Andrew and his wife then decided to move to the UK in 2005, for an intended 1 year trip, which ended up being 8 years.
With his interest in Property he decided to invest in himself to get up to speed with all the latest property strategies and legalities. He spent 7 out of his 8 years in the UK building three global property business’s.
Andrew believes that everyone should have balance in their life and after have 2 kids Simone and Andrew decided to move back to South African in 2013.
Andrew is based in South Africa but spends a lot of time in the UK where he continues to grow his portfolio and helping others do the same.
When Andrew decided to move back to South Africa in 2013, he saw a gap in the market for running networking events for property investors. He started his first event in November 2013 with only 10 people in the room.
At this event he met his South African Business Partner, Warren Brusse, where together they have built a network of over 40 000 people. This is by far the largest networking community in South Africa.
Andrew one passion is to help people as he gets a buzz from it, so he decided to start coaching and teaching in what he believes in – Property!
