Andrew grew up in Lancaster, PA and in the winter of 1986 he had an experience that became pivotal to his future career decisions. When he snapped on a pair of rental skis in the Pocono Mountains and challenged to keep pace with three friends who grew up skiing in Austria. This was a prelude to a family Spring Break skiing trip to Colorado followed by an "internship" at the Sugarbush Inn, Vermont. After graduating from Cedarville University (Ohio) with a degree in Accounting, he postponed his entrance into the business world for a year and worked as a ski valet for the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek for a season. There his passion for skiing was fueled and many lasting relationships were forged that remain to this day. Professionally, Andrew was fortunate to have several years of valuable experience working for the then, prestigious Big 6 accounting firm Arthur Andersen (Philadelphia) in the division. Colorado, however, had captured Andrew's imagination and in 1995 he accepted a job with East West Resorts a premier resort property management company as an Association Manager. Various assignments later, he made the logical transition from property management to real estate sales in 2000. He became a broker in 2000 and has earned a Graduate of Real Estate as well as the Institute of Fine Homes designations. In addition Andrew feels honored to have earned numerous annual awards acknowledging his sales proficiency and volume during the intervening 14 years. While he appreciates the recognition, he places more value on the degree of trust his clients afford him in throughout the process of purchasing and selling their homes. His personal goal is to provide honest, ethical real estate services, combined with his exhaustive knowledge of the local resort marketplaces, so that clients and friends can achieve their real estate desires and dreams in the Vail Valley.
