Born and raised in West Des Moines, Andrew honed his driving skills on the back, gravel roads of West Des Moines on what is now known as Jordan Creek Parkway. Andrew is the oldest of four kids, all of which grew up in West Des Moines.
After graduating from Valley High School in 2003, Andrew attended Iowa State University. He played sparingly in an intramural flag football league during his time there but ultimately did earn his Bachelor’s degree in Business (Marketing). He used his marketing prowess to run a dodgeball league at church for four years. Andrew has always had a passion for marketing but started his career as a claims adjuster at AIG. He hated it, had nothing to do with marketing, but he learned a lot!
He then started working for an ad agency in town where his fire for real estate really started to burn. It was during this time that he decided to pursue his real estate license. In 2018, he decided to leave his salaried job and jump in full-time to real estate and hasn’t looked back! He loves helping people with their real estate goals and loves building relationships with all the people he works with.
Andrew and Jessie have been married since 2007 and have three kids (Ryder (13), Maleigh (11), & Maisie (5)). They also have a one-year-old Siberian Husky named Koda. They live in Clive. Andrew loves Iowa State athletics and considers college football season the most wonderful time of the year. He also loves Christmas music no matter what time of the year. He’s addicted to coffee and is always down for a meeting over coffee!
