After an exciting and diverse career as an entrepreneur in the hospitality industry, busy husband of Donna and father of four Andrew Clapham has a new challenge where people are at the core and being part of the local community counts.
“I didn’t just choose real estate, I chose UP Real Estate and that was because of the people,” explains Andrew. UP has an incredible culture that only a family business filled with truly nice people can create.”
Andrew has known the UP team since they first opened an office in the same building as one of his central Auckland bars more than 15 years ago. Over the last decade he got to know the owners and team really well and is always impressed by the way they work and their innovative approach to the real estate market.
“Finding people and a business that are passionate and skilful is really important when you are going to change careers. I feel really fortunate to be part of a team as strong and successful as UP,” explains Andrew.
UP has impressive results with homes they list having some of the highest sell rates in the industry. It is a boutique agency that tailors bespoke solutions to suit the specific needs of the homeowner. “If we list someone’s home you pretty much know it’s going to sell. It’s really important that people know that we’re here to make their vision and hopes of selling a property become a reality. It’s most people’s biggest asset,”
With years of working in and around Ponsonby, Andrew has first-hand insight into the local market as well as having a broad network of people and businesses to draw on.
“It’s all about having passion and doing the things you love doing,” says Andrew.
