Andrew Cooley

A highly experienced auctioneer conducting in excess of 1,300 auctions annually, Andrew Cooley has forged a solid reputation among Sydney’s real estate elite – enhanced by his integrity and total professionalism.

Winner of the 2013 and Finalist in the 2015, 2012 and 2011 REINSW Awards for Excellence in Auctioneering, as well as Finalist in the 2013 Premier Auctioneers Competition and 2017 REB Awards Auctioneer of the Year category – Andrew’s talent is undisputed and recognised across the industry.

Well versed in selling high-end property and consistently achieving results that exceed his client’s expectations, Andrew attained the third highest price in Australian history for a residential home sold under the hammer when in 2013 he sold 23 Victoria Road, Bellevue Hill for $15.5 million – a massive $4.5 million over reserve.

Andrew has a natural ability to command the attention of the crowd and engages each individual by relaxing bidders through his friendly persona, while creating an atmosphere that instills a sense of urgency to drive the momentum of the auction. He has a thorough understanding of the dynamics of the auction process and uses his knowledge and experience to achieve the highest possible result every time.

Entertaining and energetic in style, Andrew was invited to auction two properties on the reality TV series The Renovators, as well as appear on Channel 9’s Hot Property. A firm believer in supporting the local community, Andrew also gives his time by regularly performing charity auctions for a range of honorable causes.
