Andre’s interest in real estate began at age 18, when he became fascinated with “bricks and economics.” In 1987, Andre joined a real estate development company specializing in multi-family residential restorations in Berlin, Germany and Paris, France. Over the course of the next 20 years, he got involved with all aspects of the real estate development business.
Andre’s history with New York City dates back to his first visit in 1988, when he spent the summer on the Upper West Side. Andre says, “It turned my world upside down. I realized I had to make NYC part of my life. I bought my first NYC apartment in 1991, while commuting between Europe, South America, and New York.”
Andre has made New York his permanent home since 2007 and is motivated today by the spirit of having been most interested in the people living in the properties he developed. With a strong sense of integrity, a deep knowledge of what makes a quality property and years of excellent negotiating skills, Andre is committed to listening to his clients wishes and helping them find the place that “feels like home.”
“I am thrilled to join the team at Wohlfarth & Associates. Rick is the quintessential insider and an expert in New York City residential real estate,” explains Andre. “I look forward to bringing my unique experience, strengths, and talents to the team and to providing our clients and customers best-in-class, top notch service.”
Andre lives with his wife, Aren, a New York City native, on the Upper West Side. On beautiful days, he enjoys walking through Riverside or Central Park.
Andre is fluent in English, German, French, and Spanish.
