Andrew Cole

Chartered Surveyor

“Specialising in investment and development opportunities, as well as professional Landlord and Tenant consultancy.”

Andy qualified as a chartered surveyor in the early 80s and has an MSc in Urban and Regional Town Planning from Birkbeck College, University of London. His career started in the Management Department at the well-respected City agents, Dron and Wright. He subsequently set up his own West London firm, Fisher Bell, which was acquired by Edwin Hill. Along with Damian Farino, Andy established the EH Heathrow Office where, over 20 years, they acted for most of the leading Pension Funds, major Prop Co’s, several FTSE 100 companies, plus High Net Worth individuals and Family Trusts.

Following the purchase of Edwin Hill by Altus, Damian and Andy created Farino Cole based in Hampton, working throughout the South East (specifically including West, South, and Southwest London, Heathrow, and the Thames Valley) on office and industrial purchases and disposals, particularly specialising in investment and development opportunities, as well as professional Landlord and Tenant consultancy.

In addition, for the past 12 years, Andy has had a mandate from Travelodge Hotels Limited to acquire new sites (including office conversion possibilities) in West and South London. Recent successes include office conversions in Park Royal and Richmond, new builds in Ealing and Chiswick, and constant searching for suitable opportunities close to Overground and Underground stations inside the M25.

Outside of work, Andy is a big sports fan, being a season ticket holder at both QPR and Surrey County Cricket Club. He follows Harlequins when possible and is a keen cyclist, motorcyclist, walker, and skier. His family and home life with Penny are a huge priority, and he now has three grandchildren, Ava, Harry, and Freddie.
