About Us

Director, Buyers Agent

Andrew Herbert

Our team is led by Andrew Herbert, the Principal Partner, who joined the property market after nearly a decade in the Australian military undertaking community engagement and threat assessments. Andrew has earned a reputation as a dedicated professional with a passion for property via his expertise and analytical technique, which are supplemented by his MBA.

He began his real estate career in 2013 as an investment sales agent before branching out on his own in 2015. Having difficulty obtaining properties, he realised this must be a widespread issue, and so he began researching wholesale property and property aggregation. The firm would acquire real estate from developers and resell it to real estate brokers. Andrew gained extensive knowledge of real estate and investment factors, as well as property development and financing, while working as a property aggregator.

At the time, the firm achieved such success that it was named to the 2017 AFR Fast Starter Award’s Top 100 list.

When the Royal Commission began its work in 2018, investment loans came to a standstill, and Andrew found himself sourcing property — locating and securing blocks of land for individuals and developers seeking to construct.

Today, 5 Degrees Buyers Agent serves as a comprehensive buyer’s agency, locating, negotiating, and finalising agreements for new houses and development blocks.
