Licensed Real Estate Agent
Andrew offers more than just a simple transaction of selling your home and a “see you later”. His approach is built on being able to negotiate a great price, whilst offering an easy, stress-free transition, every step of the way. In an industry that has forgotten about the buyer and seller, focusing instead on slick marketing, overused technology and glorifying the agent, Andrew takes a different, more holistic approach, which provides a service synonymous with the perspective of those he is working for.
"Listening to buyers and sellers for over 20 years, I have learnt to focus on what my role actually is. As a seller and buyer myself, I want to know how to achieve the best result and how to get there with the least amount of stress. I expect to be given honest, accurate information on pricing, whilst being advised and helped through the entire process, from preparing the home for sale to the packing up to leave when it is sold. It’s not rocket science, it’s about treating people the way I would like to be treated and actually being there, on your side during the journey offering solutions, guidance and even rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty when things don’t go to plan."
The foundations of HEM were born from understanding that people need MORE THAN just slick advertising and that they deserve a better experience. So if it is MORE THAN average you are seeking when making the next move, contact Andrew Meldrum and ﬁnd your Happy Ever More….

We appreciated your constant feedback (good and bad) and also your never-ending supply of enthusiasm and positivity!!! We chose you as our selling agent because we had also dealt with you when we were buying and felt that, as buyers, you treated us with honesty and kept us fully informed and motivated throughout the process. And.....we jut think you're genuinely a "bloody" good bloke to deal with"
"My transaction was very smooth and easy. This was made possible through the help given by Andrew who was super responsive and continued to help me after I'd made the purchase, as I was living overseas at the time. He even recently called me to see how things were going which is about 5 months after settlement. Very impressed!"
"We chose Andrew as he has a great reputation in Port Macquarie. So glad we did. He was realistic with pricing, the time it would take to sell and the type of buyer it would be marketed to. The marketing of the property was fantastic and he only brought through potential buyers that were qualified first. I cannot recommend Andrew highly enough and would definitely use him and the HEM Property team again."

''My wife and I have just sold our King Creek home through HEM Property. Our agreement with HEM was signed on 27th February and an offer was made by the successful buyer on 16th March and accepted. Contracts were exchanged 3 weeks later. The price achieved exceed everyone's expectations. Up until signing with HEM we had endured 6 arduous and stressful months of dealing with many agents in the Port Macquarie and Wauchope areas. Communicating, keeping promises and doing what they committed to do did not seem to be areas that were important or even necessary to any of them. I did not experience any honour and integrity in any of the agents I dealt with. One agent failed to contact me after three promises to do so. Another actually fired himself from an agency agreement I had entered into after a total lack of communication and effort. A third communicated our business with neighbours. To say I was sceptical when I first met Dave Evans and Andrew Meldrum is an understatement given my history in selling my home. When HEM was established they included the following statement in their advertising material: "A shared vision to create a modern real estate agency that listens to clients and break away from the traditional image of the real estate industry. They are a true team of experienced local agents with a difference!" I can confirm that these words have proven to be absolutely true. The first thing any potential client will notice with HEM is that there actually IS a difference between them and other agents. Their approach to the whole process of selling my house was completely planned and explained at the very beginning and totally followed through at every stage. In my dealings with Dave and Andrew I have found them to be totally professional in every aspect of the sale process. Not only professional, but professional and different. All agents will say that they are professional and will create a stress-free process. I have found that to be totally untrue in the 5 different agencies I dealt with prior to HEM. HEM are a true team of experienced local agents who can genuinely state that they have a difference. I can completely attest to this, and have absolutely no reservations in recommending them to any prospective buyer or seller where the highest degree of honesty and integrity are of paramount importance.''
"Although my flat was sold recently (and quickly!) by Andrew, Andrew has been assisting me since I have purchased the property 5 years ago. Over the years Andrew has gone over and above to assist me with my investment. Throughout this time, Andrew has been a trusted advisor and guide, to which I hold a deep gratitude. Having Andrew guide me through the years put me in a perfect position to achieve a sale price far beyond my expectations. Not only does Andrew have a clear understanding and knowledge of the local market, Andrew goes above and beyond to ensure every detail is covered. I cannot recommend Andrew enough, not only for his skills in getting an amazing price for the sale, but for the years of assistance and guidance that he happily gave at the expense of his own time. Thanks again Andrew for all that you have done for me…. You have absolutely helped me make my dreams of travelling come true!"
“I had a great experience dealing with Andrew. He was easy to talk to, made meetings comfortable and I at no stage felt pressured. He took the time to understand the type of property we were looking for and once he found the right house he made the process simple and fast. Even after the sale was complete, he was still helping me.”
“We have known Andrew for 17 years and he has sold two Port Macquarie properties for us. He is exceptionally professional in his manner and operation. He is very much attuned to the hopes, concerns and needs of his clients and acutely aware of the local market. We were kept fully informed daily of developments and progress. We were delighted with his performance and both times he achieved a figure considerably higher than we expected.”
“We did our own research and spoke to a couple of other agents regarding our sale. After one meeting with Andrew we knew he would get the best price. It took him just eight days and one open to achieve the full asking price. He is professional, hardworking and very personable and we have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as an excellent agent.”
“We had Andrew sell our home and cannot fault his commitment. He kept us informed and involved at all stages of the sales and marketing process. He never took his foot off the accelerator and got us the price we wanted in very good time. He did a fantastic job and we would highly recommend him.”
" Andrew Meldrum "
