Learning the ropes as a Licensed Realtor in one of the sharpest downturns in American history was paramount to the success we have today with our clients. From 2010 through the early months of 2013 the Real Estate market was in constant flux. We where able to assist our clients buying Millions of dollars worth of rental homes with double digit returns, procure and dispose over a Few Million Dollars in profits for our fix and flip investors and placed many families in homes that exceeding their dreams. We managed to sell 6 homes over 1 Million dollars, including our biggest sale to date of a wonderful estate in Scottsdale at a staggering 2,863,000.

As the distressed properties have started to burn off in 2013 and traditional real estate is back dominating the Phoenix area market, I take great pride in the effort it took to succeed during those trying times. Thinking outside the box on everything from selling, marketing and negotiating has allowed me to bring an aggressive game plan for the Families I represent and Investors alike. My team and I ran full speed at the market when most Realtors either threw in the towel or refused to acknowledge the dramatic shift and got left behind. Additionally, In 2011, I earned the distinction of "Certified Scottsdale Real Estate Specialist" from the Scottsdale Area Association of Realtors. This designation is earned by fewer to 70 agents each year. I also earned the trust of many new families and investors and are most proud of that.

Leading up to my time as a full time Realtor I was hard at work as an Investor myself. From 2007-2010 I concentrated on buying properties that where in distress, added value to them and sold them for a profit. I was able to sell over 6,500,000 in homes during this time and worked my way through many of the struggles investors have to maintain a double digit return on these projects. This three year period of experiences of trials and tribulations of an investor during the worst economic crisis has put me in a position to be able to look any investor in the eye and feel confident that I can bring a tremendous value to their team.

As investors, we all know the risk involved with Real Estate and especially in the Scottsdale / Phoenix Market where the market seems to sway like a pendulum. This is why the best part of my job as a licensed Realtor is assisting families finding the new home of the dream, but bringing the investor mindset to the purchase. Its easy for us to fall in love with a new home and "have to have it". Its much easier as a Realtor to nod your head yes and agree and push a client into a deal that doesn't make the best sense for them. Many clients get frustrated at me in the beginning because I am always looking at the numbers and trying to ensure the we minimize the financial risk. Those same clients are the ones who give me the biggest hugs when we close on the right house, in the right area, for the right price.

I am also able to bring experience on the financing side as I was originating mortgage's from 2004-2007. Having a complete understanding of these sometimes complex transactions allows me to protect my clients in ways many other agents have never experienced. I refuse to be outworked by any other Realtor, and you will not regret allowing me the opportunity to prove my value to you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.425M in Camelback East, Phoenix, AZ.

I wouldn't chose another realtor, Andy is by far my first choice.

Andy was responsible for both arranging the sale of my previous house in addition to the purchase of my current house (which we bought as a short sale). His knowledge of the market combined with his extensive experience with all types of real estate transactions (to include short sales) was what took this horribly disorganized purchase and turned it into the sale of a lifetime. In under 3 months we took ownership of our new house whereas dozens had been dragged along for over a year due to a shady seller and an incompetent selling realtor.

When the time came for Andy to engage the seller's attorney he straight talked them right into a transaction and didnt cave in to constant seller requirement changes as the deal progressed. He negotiated the terms of the sale and executed them accordingly.

On top of his knowledge I think you'll find his personality to be "charming" in a no-nonsense kind of way which is a perfect combination when you're trying to get a deal done.

He's seen and done just about everything and as I said, I wouldnt choose anybody else.

CM, that means a lot! Thank you so much for taking the time to put this together. We HAD to get this house, still one of my favorites that I have ever seen in the valley. Thanks again!

Sold a home in 2012.

The level of service and support that we received from Andy was truly invaluable. I really appreciated his knowledge of the area, his expertise in representing both sellers / buyers (he acted as the agent on both transactions for us) and his ability to remain calm and strategic during what proved to be a rather challenging negotiation on the purchase side. Andy's knowledge of the market (he sold our house within 4 months of listing it), the short sale process (the purchase of our new home was finalized in less than 3 months) and the area were critical to the successful acquisition of our new home. His ability to keep us focused and positive cannot go without mention either. Andy did a terrific job of balancing our needs; being candid when necessary and keeping us focused on what mattered most….finding our dream home.

It's not every day that you find someone to represent you who is invested for the right reasons and truly has your best interest at heart. I would not hesitate to do business with Andy again and highly recommend his services to anyone who is seeking top notch representation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.975M in Paradise Valley, AZ.

Andy is a top-notch and full service real estate agent. He\'s the total package. We worked with him when my husband and I bought our Paradise Valley dream house. While dedicated and hard-working throughout the entire purchase process, what\'s most impressive about Andy is that he follows through even after the sale. The best real estate agent we\'ve ever met. Thank you Andy!  More Less
