Andrew Fine joined Halstead Real Estate in February 2010 with 14 years experience in residential real estate, including 10 years running his own boutique brokerage, A. Fine Company, Inc. Andrew has always been an innovator who has leveraged technology to build a stellar career in real estate. Early in the internet age, he built one of the first full service brokerage websites which pre-dated larger competitors to the net, and routinely drew considerable traffic. He was also one of the first brokers to blog, creating A. Fine Blog in 2007. Nearly a half million users have viewed A. Fine Blog, and it is routinely referenced by real estate publications such as The Real Deal, Curbed, and others as well as publications like the Financial Times, The Observer, and the New York Times.
For Andrew, “I Love New York,” is clearly an understatement. Born in Boston, Andrew moved to the Upper East Side with his family in the early 1970s and it was love at first sight. Despite a brief stop in Washington D.C., schooling at Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey, and Occidental College in Los Angeles, New York is a clear #1 for Andrew.
There is no place like it in the world. To wake up every morning in the financial and cultural capital of the world is invigorating. In New York City, there is always something new to experience, to eat, to look at, and as I often do, to write about.
A career in real estate is a natural fit. Not only does Andrew bring incredible passion to what he does, he enjoys every minute of it. For sellers, Andrew prides himself on his ability to drive the greatest traffic to a property to bring about the best price. “It’s all about traffic. With my marketing experience and the vast reach of the Halstead platform, I believe that I can drive traffic to my sellers’ properties in a more efficient and more impressive fashion than any of our competition.” For buyers, Andrew believes that listening to clients’ exact wants and needs save both buyer and broker valuable time. He then works tirelessly to scour every resource available to insure that every suitable property is found, and in a timely fashion. When it comes to the nuts and bolts of a deal, Andrew has extensive experience in successful negotiation, package completion, and if needed, a strong network of lawyers, mortgage brokers and a variety of resources to help both buyer and seller.
A self-professed “work-a-holic,” Andrew looks forward to putting forth the strongest effort to suit your real estate needs today.
