Blue Quadrant understood that selling and buying a house was more than just a set of transactions. The members of the Blue Quadrant team really understood our emotional needs for selling and buying. They “held our hands” in every aspect of the buying and selling experience. By tuning into our concerns Andy and Kristian painted an improved vision of both the house that we were selling and the house that we were buying. Andy suggested some upgrades to the house we were selling, and he painted a realistic set of renovations to the house we were buying. Kristian took charge of the renovations. He and his team explained every detail of every step of the journey on both sets of renovations. We were never left worrying that things were looking different from what he had agreed upon.Steven Segal

Blue Quadrant played a pivotal role in each step from selling our home in St Ives, to buying and renovating a house in the Eastern Suburbs. We had our house in St Ives on the market in 2018 but had been unable to sell as the property market fell. At around this time, we met Andy and he made a few suggestions as to how to renovate our house. He also arranged for builders to undertake the renovations. We followed his advice and when we put our house on the market again in 2019, we were able to sell at a price we were happy with. We engaged Andy to help us identify and purchase a house in the Eastern suburbs. Andy identified an original old Art Deco house, and he not only showed us the house, he also pointed out the potential for renovation and had the renovations costed for us before we put in an offer. Andy successfully negotiated the purchase of the house for us. Kristian then became our primary contact as builders were organised, quotes obtained, contracts signed, and building began. Kristian has been with us every step of the way through the renovations and if we have had any concerns, he has worked with the builders to address them. The builders have been amazing and have gone above and beyond contractual obligations, accommodating us and keeping us advised of price changes which have always been reasonable. Andy has also stayed in touch with the process, emailing or phoning as each phase has been completed. I have felt supported every step of the way by great a team.Margot Segal

Andy Tooch has conducted several valuations and feasibility studies for me. He also assisted me with the selling of an investment property. He has been extremely committed in all tasks and put considerable energy into achieving sought outcomes. Initially was ambivalent about using him to assist with the sale of the investment property as he is not a real estate agent, and his work focuses on valuations, feasibilities and buyer agency work. A prominent real estate agent had however previously been unable to sell the unit for a price that approached Andy’s valuation. Andy put in an enormous effort and achieved a good result. Andy is very personable and forms enduring relationships with all parties in transactions. I think he genuinely has his client’s interests at heart.Jeff Ross
In 2014, I put my house in Castle Cove on the market with the assistance of one of the established real estate agents. After spending a considerable amount of money on marketing, and doing a full campaign, the house failed to sell. Even though the offers that came in were well below expectations, the agent recommended I sell. It was at that point that Andy Tooch was recommended to me. Andy did an evaluation of the property and gave me a band-width of the property’s value. I then asked him if he would assist me to sell the property. We took the property off the market and Andy supervised a small renovation that he said would add value. We then put the house back on the market. Andy engaged fully with every potential buyer, discussing their needs, wants and objections. In the end, he sold the house for a fair price, which was way above the ridiculous offers I received during the first campaign.
Andy then helped me purchase an investment property in Brisbane. We flew up to Brisbane together, Andy negotiated the price for me and organised a Brisbane-based conveyancer. The whole process was seamless.
In 2017, I then found a property in Sydney that I wanted to buy. Again, I consulted Andy who did a valuation for me. He alerted me to the questions to ask strata and with that information in hand, we could negotiate a better price. Andy is such a caring and personable person. He has a depth of experience and sharp negotiating skills. He is my go-to property consultant and I recommend him to all my family and friends considering buying or selling a property. Please feel free to contact me for further information.Diane Singer

Excellent Service and commitment from Andy Tooch.
I approached Andy Tooch to assist us with buying a property as we needed guidance navigating what can be a very complex and confusing process. Andy was incredibly helpful, and took us through every step of the process explaining clearly as we went along.
He was very careful to clarify why each step needed to be taken and what the pitfalls would be if we made hasty and uninformed decisions. From the outset we were not sure what the process would entail or how time consuming it might be. Andy was extremely responsive and pro-active, he did an enormous amount of research and work and was extremely persistent in following up every potential property purchase.
He worked tirelessly, well over and above the service levels which I was expecting. He certainly had our best interests at heart, and never pushed us into purchasing any property that was unsuitable or not in our best interest. Andy certainly understands the property market and has a wealth of experience in the field. I am very confident in using him as a property purchasing investment advisor and have recommended him to several of my friends and colleagues.Allan Aarons
Andrew Tooch gave me advice when selling my house and helped me to buy a new one. He is one of the hardest working people in the business. He treats you like family if you are going to sell or buy a house I recommend you go with him and his great team. They should be the first people you should call.Xin Liu
Throughout my adult years, I have purchased a few different houses to live in. I recently found the need and desire to purchase an investment property and spoke to a few different agents until I found Andrew Tooch. When making such a large decision, I wanted to work with someone that I could trust.
Throughout the past several months, Andrew has been there every step of the way. I bought well and his professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated.Minghua Long
