Andro specializes in sales and rentals, as well as off-market deals and investment properties in New York City. He has worked with a diverse clientele that includes international buyers seeking opportunities in Manhattan. Involved in the real estate industry since 2010, Andro served as property manager of a family-owned business focused on luxury short-term furnished rentals. He transitioned to the brokerage side working as a broker assistant, then listings manager and Certified Corporate Relocation Specialist at Weichert Properties, New York.
Born in Manila, Philippines, Andro was raised in Manhattan since the age of three. He lived on the Upper East and West Sides for most of his life. After attending The Browning School, Andro went on to graduate from Connecticut College with a B.A. degree, double majoring in Economics and Asian Studies. He also studied at the University of Hawaii and has traveled abroad extensively.
He spent six years in finance along with 15+ years of hospitality in entertainment marketing, luxury branding, and hotel management for a boutique hotel in Times Square gives Andro a distinct professional edge. He is highly analytical, creative, and knowledgeable of Manhattan’s different neighborhoods, points of interests and local trends. His approachable, consultative style allows him to build strong relationships as he assists with one of his clients’ most important life decisions.
As a food enthusiast and former event planner, Andro can also make superior restaurant and nightlife recommendations all over the city. “Many times, I find myself being a personal concierge to my clients while working on a deal, and even after the transaction has closed. I enjoy being their trusted friend and ‘go-to’ guy for all things NYC.”
Andro’s interests outside of real estate include fashion, cars, cigars and traveling to various beach destinations. He also loves spending time with his amazing puppy named Bentley.
"I was in a hard pressed situation, where I needed an apartment in the heart of the city, required laundry in the building, and couldn't pay a broker fee, all this within my constricted budget. I moved to NY from India, and didn't have an idea of what I should be looking at, let alone where. Chris and Andro took the time to talk to me and understand what I needed, and within 24 hours I had put in an application. This being said, I went through a plethora of brokers and apartments before I found Mrdn, and simply put Mrdn is a cut above the rest."
