Andy M. Shiparski is a manager extraordinaire. Yes, he is a great manager, but so much more. Andy cares for his agents with passion. He wants us to be very successful at our business, but it has to be intertwined with success in all parts of our lives. Working with Andy allows us a balance in a way that works for each of us. I respect and admire him more than any other manager I have met...and I have been around for a long time! I consider myself blessed to be part of his family." Pam Sullivan

"Andy is always there for me!" This extraordinary characteristic is so important in management. In these challenging times the agents need to know that they have the full support of their manager along with his sage advice when the deals get complicated. The fact that Andy will actually meet a stressed out client when there are issues is remarkable. I have experienced this first hand since joining Coldwell Banker Gold Coast last January and have tripled my earnings since 2010." Meladee Hughes
