After graduating from Old Dominion, Andrew worked for a number of years as a real estate broker in Wilmington N.C.  As a Manager at a Century 21 franchise and then at a Re/Max franchise he learned the ins and outs of real estate from listing and sales to contracts and closings.  He then moved to the Triangle area to pursue his law degree.  His prior experience as a realtor gives him a unique insight into real estate and allows Andrew to have a great approach in making sure that the closing occurs on schedule.  Andrew is married and has 4 children (all girls).
