If you’re reading this, chances are you’re curious about who I am and how I can be of assistance to you. I’m Andrew Shackleton. a real estate broker with Wolle Realty specializing in the Kitchener Waterloo area.
I pride myself on providing exceptional service to my clients by actively listening to their needs and wants and then delivering, going the extra mile with the attention to detail they deserve.
Interestingly enough, I got into real estate though a random conversation about flipping houses with my wife. I’d mentioned real estate agents and Jude replied ‘you can do that!’, and the rest is history.
One thing I love most about this business is the opportunity to protect people from bad deals and financial damage. I take great satisfaction in providing guidance to my clients and ensuring that their best interests are always front and centre.
While my last name may be recognizable, I am not related to the famous Antarctic explorer. Instead, I’ve spent most of my life in the Kitchener Waterloo area, giving me a deep understanding of the local real estate market.
The rush of adrenaline is still fun. I blame my father for starting me skiing at a young age. A love affair with motorcycles started at 12. I raced a bit in my teens and 20s and picked up cycling in my 30s. And I still crash my mountain bike seemingly on schedule. I definitely need excitement and being an agent makes perfect sense!
Self reliance runs pretty deep in me. I taught myself how to weld from the internet because I wanted to build bike frames. I’ve swapped motors in my driveway. I got a degree in my late thirties. This website is the third one I’ve built. And there isn’t much I haven’t done around the house including 3 roofing jobs.
An empathetic and selfless mindset in combination with hands-on knowledge of structures and equipment is the key to my success. A sharp eye for detail, honed by years of wrenching on vehicles and some time in the building trades has proved invaluable for working with clients, especially buyers.
I’m a life long learner in a very dynamic industry. Listing and buying best practices, access to data, and the technology we rely on are constantly evolving. Becoming a broker was a goal from day one.
Needless to say I’m well ahead of the curve when it comes to marketing properties. Getting my listing clients top dollar while keeping disruption to the absolute minimum is not just an aspirational goal.
I’m not big on tooting my own horn but I am good at this. I’ve won three Master Sales awards in the past few years and earned the President’s Gold for 2021. If you want some validation read my reviews or check out the seventeen 5 star reviews already on Google.
If you’re looking for a knowledgeable and dedicated real estate broker in the Kitchener Waterloo area, I am confident that I can provide the exceptional service you deserve.
