Andrew co-founded Aidan J Reed & Andrew Johnson in January 2008, which became Andrew Johnson & Company in October 2012. Andrew hails originally from Matlock in Derbyshire. He spent his childhood in Hertfordshire and Norwich, then his teenage years in Shrewsbury in Shropshire. It was there that his love of houses began, when he first worked for John German (Shrewsbury) and Christopher Morris (Church Stretton). A family move to Morpeth (Northumberland) lead Andrew to the Halifax (Morpeth), and then to the University of Northumbria, where he graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Estate Management. He followed this with postgraduate training with the Halifax and Colley’s Professional Services, which included stints in London, Leeds and Newcastle and involved both domestic surveying and commercial work. Following his qualification and membership of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, Andrew worked for John German (Ashby de la Zouch), BBG Surveyors (Bradford & Bingley Group, Teesside) and Andrew Grant (Worcester), moving each time in order to build upon his experience and expertise within his chosen profession. In 2002 Andrew was called upon to return to John German (Loughborough) to head up their Survey Department. In 2008 he took the plunge and opened his own Estate Agents & Surveyors here in Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Andrew lives in Ashby and can regularly be seen ‘de-stressing’ at Hood Park Leisure Centre. He is an Assistant Scout Leader and is often found underground through his passion for caving. When time allows, he enjoys trying out a variety of challenges with both Ashby Round Table and 41 Club (The Association of Ex-Roundtablers Club). Andrew enjoys motor sport and often attends the BTCC and Le Mans 24 hour race. At weekends he enjoys walking his dog in the National Forest with his wife and sons.
