We used Andrew and “Team Welch” to recently sell our property and we couldn’t be happier. Andrew was great; very easy to deal with and kept the communication lines opened. Being based in Victoria, this was a must for us! Andrew and Tim kept us informed every step of the way, went above and beyond throughout the journey and most importantly…. got the sale in a tough and challenging market! We would highly recommend.

Brett Zorzi

Andrew is a seasoned campaigner. He was courteous and professional and enthusiastic in all our meetings and conversations. He is backed up by an equally professional team at LJ Hooker Kensington | Unley. Tim was a great wingman and equally engaged. We got the result we were looking for and would definitely recommend Andrew and his team to anyone looking to sell their property.

Terry & Liz McKeough

We are so glad that we asked Andrew Welch to help us sell our house. As first time vendors, we did not know what to expect and Andrew’s advice and guidance prior to listing, along with his frequent feedback during the sales process kept us informed and reassured throughout. His highly professional team, especially the wonderful Tim Knowling, were a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was ever too much trouble, no question too naive for Andrew. Andrew achieved an excellent result at the auction, and his negotiation skills at this stressful time shone through. We would highly recommend Andrew to any other vendor, especially in the eastern suburbs as his local knowledge and experience sets him above all others in the area. We will be calling him again when we next sell our house.

Dan and Cathy Short

Andrew Welch from LJ Hooker, Kensington was a delight to work with during the recent sale of our townhouse. Together with his team he ran an excellent and smooth campaign. Andrew is enthusiastic and a great communicator. We were kept up to date at all times. His knowledge of the industry and his advice on the sale strategy was excellent. Andrew and Team Welch, which included Tim Knowling, took a lot of the stress out of selling. We have pleasure in recommending Andrew and Team Welch to anyone who would like true professionals to handle the sale of their property.

Mike & Catherine Nolan

Wow, what a fantastic result from Team Welch. Thank you for all your hard work. At every open inspection and all the work behind the scene resulted in five serious registered bidders and I’m sure more than fifty people at the auction. Your suggestions were spot on and showed your experience and expertise. As you know we did speak to another realestate firm and definitely decided you were the one. 😅 Thank you Andrew and Tim and how fantastic is Richard Thwaites! Best wishes to you all for the future and many thanks.

Candice and Paul Easterbrook

To Andrew & Team, We cannot thank you enough for your support and compassion throughout this journey. You really did go above and beyond for us, and we are so grateful for your genuine and honest communication. We love Team Welch!

Mandy weaver hope valley

We would like to thank Andrew and Milean for all their help with purchase of our property. The purchasing process was completely stress free and we felt very well supported throughout. The communication was excellent right throughout from beginning to end as well as post sale following us settling in at our new place which we think is Credit in itself to Andrew and Milean. We felt as if we were always kept informed of the process and things happening right from the day we signed contract until we got the keys in person at our new property. Never ever have we been through such a stress free process of purchasing a property. Andrew and Milean were absolutely fantastic, polite, courteous and supportive. Felt as if our needs and situation was very well understood and were given very personal support which is very rare to find these days especially in Real Estate Industry. The most appreciated virtue of Andrew was his honesty and transparency throughout the whole process. Although his job was to work in best interest of the Vendors, we felt as if we were very well looked after as well. Finally, a big thank you once again to Andrew and Milean.

Naitik Trivedi

Andrew Welch and his team were a big asset during the entire sales process. Andrew was meticulous in keeping me informed of the sales process from preparation for sale, through the open inspections and dealing with the actual auction day. Andrew's strategy for marketing and selling my Unit was spot on. From first open inspection to auction day was only 14 days and going to auction was the right decision. This can be a stressful time and Andrew's local knowledge of the property market ensured a successful outcome. I wouldn't have considered going to auction but I'm pleased that I did. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Andrew and his team to family and friends. Andrew was always friendly and professional and ensured a smooth and stress free campaign. Many thanks

Cathy Jackson, Norwood, July 2018

Andrew Welch was alway professional, on time, had great communication and a great sense of humour! His local knowledge is invaluable. I would, and have, recommend him most highly. We were absolutely thrilled with the price we got at auction and the entire process. Well done Andrew and thank-you,

Jo-Anne Curtayne, Dulwich S.A.

Andrew Welch is a professional, friendly agent who goes above and beyond expectations of an agent. Even with properties that are difficult to sell he will patiently persist and follow up every small lead until the job is done. Cannot recommend Andrew more highly.

Sandy Barker, Campbelltown

I have known Andrew Welch for many years and he has given me excellent advice. He has never pressured me just to get a sale, even talking me out of selling wen he did not think the time was right. Based on my experience with him It was an easy choice when I did decide to sell Margaret St. I found him ethical, professional and friendly to deal with and am happy with the result.

Antonietta Austin Norwood

Andrew's knowledge about the area was fantastic, I wouldn't have considered an auction but glad I did. He was great to deal with, very professional and I was informed about open results promptly. I would recommend Andrew Welch to anyone.

Linda Mercorella

Andrew was very motivated and honest in all his dealings with us. Andrew always kept us informed on the progress of the sale and the interest shown at open inspections. The sales marketing plan prepared by Andrew proved to be successful and covered everything we needed in selling our property at Klemzig.

Stephen & Shirley Trebilcock, Stirling

Andrew managed my end to end sales process of a tricky property brilliantly. He is highly professional, knowledgable and Andrew is a terrific agent who I'll use again and now recommend to friends and family.

Catherine, Fullarton

Andrew Welch and his team at LJHooker Kensington was a big asset during the entire sales process. Selling a home is a stressful time and the understanding and professionalism of Andrew and Team Welch gave us the confidence we needed - from advice in preparing the house for sale, right through the opens, with constructive feedback - to dealing with the potential difficulties of auction day. This is the third home I have sold with Andrew Welch of L J Hooker, and again he delivered beyond expectation on all levels. Well done!

Elizabeth McGrice of Adelaide

We have had the pleasure of being associated with Andrew Welch through the recent successful sale of our home in Walkerville. Andrew is a creative and passionate professional who has an excellent understanding of his client’s needs. Andrew spent a considerable amount of time listening to us and planning a very strategic and specific marketing plan. He has developed a successful and systemised approach to marketing and selling houses that covers everything in precise detail. Andrew is a very enthusiastic and motivated person who managed to eliminate all of the usual strains and stresses involved in selling houses. His follow up, communication skills and attention to detail were greatly appreciated. Andrew is results orientated and combined with his strong work ethic and positive attitude he will always maximise any opportunity.

Stephen McGrath - Walkerville

Andrew Welch came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. It's simply difficult to fault Andrew's performance. Andrew was very supportive throughout the process, and we benefited from the wealth of his knowledge in understanding the market. The house was presented in the best possible way, and Andrew worked his magic to achieve the best possible result for us. As for LJ Hooker / Kensington, it was a great team effort from start to finish. We will definitely be a repeat customer.

Don Marshall, Wynn Vale

Andrew has been excellent throughout the sales campaign. He was knowledgeable in the local market and always able to give deep insight thought of the market. We were able to sell the house under 21 days on market and above the expected sales price. Marketing plan was clearly communicated to us on timely manner and excellently executed. His team who also consists of Anthony has been excellent in offering services and supporting us excellently during and post sales campaign. Definitely seek advice from the best team if you are looking to sell.

I have provided a testimonial- It's on the USB drive along with the film of the parking inspector which I gave to the agency but here it is again.........If you're looking for somebody to sell your property I would recommend that you call the Kensington branch of L. J. Hooker and ask for a fellow by the name of Andrew Welch. Andrew is a consummate professional and, as a bonus in my opinion, a decent human being. There is no substitute for experience and Andrew has been selling houses for 22 years and has won many accolades within the industry – he sold my house recently for me and achieved a fantastic result – 110K above my reserve (which is impressive on a house value at the lower end of the market). I think that speaks for itself. I always felt like I was in safe hands with Andrew and his team – there was plenty of feedback from him throughout the well thought out marketing process and I was kept fully informed of everything that was going on. So kudos to you Andrew – thank you so very much for a great result – kind regards, Jeremy Lackner-Dixon.

Jeremy Lackner-Dixon Birks Street Parkside

This was the second property that Andrew handled for our family. Andrew provided early advice on preparing the property for sale and assisted with the contacts of businesses who could provide the required services. After working through that process Andrew provided a review and further direction prior to marketing commencing. All this work and planning in advance of sale was important. Andrew is active in the local market with both buyers and different types of property. His guidance and recommendations were based on current market insight's and experience. Andrew is very focused on doing things in a way he has found to be successful. This entails a well planned and implemented process. As the marketing proceeded it was important that effective channels of communication were maintained. It was important that following regular open inspections and viewings that updates were done to marketing materials and placements. Advertising placements including on the internet were perfect. We needed to be in a position to make informed decisions, address property presentation issues and plan ahead. Andrew's communication and approach facilitated this. We fully explored the market through Andrew and his team. We are confident we achieved a very good outcome upon sale.

Chris Redmond, Burnside

I was very happy with Andrew's approach to selling my unit in Norwood. He was passionate, professional and helpful throughout the entire process which in turn translated to a seamless and easy transaction. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Andrew and his team to family or friends. He will certainly be the first agent I call when the time comes for another sale in the future.

Caroline Plant, Norwood

Andrew Welch confidently and professionally handled our sale campaign. He kept us informed and was excellent at handling inquiries and interest in the property. The auction secured a better result than expected. His manner was friendly but professional, and he gave us confidence through his well thought out recommendations and advice. Would definitely use his services again

It was a pleasure having Andrew and his associate, Brad, to sell my rental property. They happily liaised with my tenant, and open inspections were well organised and ran perfectly. Great communication - always kept me informed, providing feedback throughout the sales process. Were committed to every little detail during the short time it took them to sell my unit, and their professional and pleasant manner made for a stress free time. Would highly recommend Andrew and Brad if considering selling a property - very efficient, reliable & effective - great result!

Coralie 31 July 2017

From the day my property went online to the day that Andrew had a contract signed was barely 4 weeks. Everything was always well organised and ran to plan, open inspections were a breeze. Thanks Andrew for your friendly, professional approach and for making the sale of my unit so easy!!

Coralie

I recently sold a property through Andrew. It was an easy, hassle free experience. Andrew negotiated the conditions that I wanted. Everything was smooth from start to finish. Andrew and Brad kept me up to speed with everything. I would recommend them. Great work guys! Hayley

Hayley 18 July 2017

Andrew Welch was totally professional and fully explained the auction process which was new to me. Because of his knowledge and experience I could relax and leave the worry to him knowing I was in safe hands - he took care of everything . I would recommend Andrew Welch because of his years of experience and his obvious expertise in real estate.

Jenni Harvey banksia Park

Dear Andrew, Just a short note to thank you, Brad and your team, very much for all the help and hard work you provided when selling our family home and our investment unit.
