Corporate Profile 

St Andrews Estate Agents is Hobart's premier boutique real estate agency. First and foremost, the owners are trained property professionals: registered property valuers, real estate agents or property consultant – no other real estate business in our market harbours this concentration of expertise.

Our aim is simple: to consistently achieve market-leading results for our clients.

We focus on:

  • sharing our deep market knowledge and our enthusiasm for the city we live in and love

  • working almost exclusively in Hobart’s inner suburbs – a market we understand and have lived in for decades

  • sales only, not the distraction of property management or other ancillary activities

  • customising bespoke marketing strategies for each and every listing entrusted to us

  • cultivating an enviable network of buyers and sellers

  • acting as skilled and ethical negotiators at all times


We are committed to building an enduring business with an enviable market position that provides our clients with exceptional service and value.
