A veteran of the US and Asian markets with 16 years of sales and marketing experience, Andrew Gates is a Certified Negotiation Expert and Associate Broker with Sotheby's International Realty in its Upper East Side office in New York City.
Andrew is a licensed broker in NY, CT and MA, and an Estate Agent in Hong Kong. Recruited by Sotheby's International Realty in 2004 to open its first office in Northern Litchfield County, CT, Andrew went on to become the #1 listing and selling broker in that office.
By 2010, Andrew was further recognized as one of the top brokers by volume among the 30 NY and CT offices of William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty. As a preview to his international experience, Andrew crafted a private transaction on behalf of a prominent Brazilian family, which resulted in the highest rental price ever attained in Litchfield County, CT.
In 2012, Andrew relocated to Hong Kong, where he joined Hong Kong Sotheby's International Realty as International Consultant. Following his first sale in Hong Kong, Andrew set a record as the organization's first broker to have closed transactions in multiple US states as well as a foreign territory.
During his tenure in Hong Kong, Andrew further served Sotheby's International Realty's expansion in the region by developing a unique agent-marketing platform for all North American, Asia Pacific and EMEA brokers during Sotheby's 2013 spring sales. Andrew served as lead client liaison to Sotheby's VIP Asian clients for North American real estate and ran the Vietnam Desk, an alliance between Hong Kong and Vietnam Sotheby's International Realty and Indochina Capital, the leading private equity firm in Southeast Asia.
Andrew brings an original perspective to the Manhattan market as the only NY Sotheby's International Realty broker to have worked for the organization in Asia, which provided a quantum leap for his global contact file and high touch acumen for handling Asian and international clients. Andrew is looked to as the source for the latest trends on Asian demand for US real estate, and has been sought out for comment by the Asia Wall Street Journal and the South China Morning Post.
Andrew is recognized as one of the most active referral brokers throughout the Sotheby's International Realty network and recently set a record by sending and receiving more than a dozen referrals within a 90-day period. East Side Manhattan Brokerage Manager Ellie Johnson said: "Andrew, I do believe you are doing an excellent job developing your referral network and utilizing the Sotheby's brand."
In addition to his focus on Asian and international clients, Andrew covers all of New York City on behalf of his friends and clients from the weekend homes markets of Litchfield, Dutchess, Columbia and Berkshire counties.
Andrew graduated from Indian Mountain and the Salisbury School, and Fordham U. He has traveled in Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific to more than 35 countries.
