About Andy Stretton
Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Andy completed his conscription in the Police Force, before moving to South Africa. Following tertiary studies, he embarked on a career in the Pulp and Paper Industry, which brought him across to New Zealand in 2001.
Towards the end of 2015, Andy decided to leave the Pulp and Paper Industry and embark on a career in the Real Estate Industry and thoroughly enjoys this change of direction. During his first full financial year in Real Estate, Andy achieved the Professionals Rookie of the Year Award for the Bay of Plenty and Waikato region.
Andy believes a strong value set, built around principles of trust, integrity, respect and honesty, is vital for the service industry, to building rapport with clients, being it vendors or purchasers and helping them achieve their dreams. The home is a long term investment, something you will love and enjoy for years, so his goal will be getting the value you deserve to meet those needs and within your budget.
Passionate about getting involved in helping the community, Andy is a member of both the Rotary Sunrise Whakatane club as well as Eastern Bay Villages, which focusses on reducing vulnerability and the loneliness of seniors in the community.
Married to Carol, the couple have 2 grown up children and also enjoy the role of grandparents. During his spare time, Andy enjoys walking, gardening, cycling and playing a little golf.
