It was at that time that Andrew reflected on time spent with a mentor, none other than Swann Real Estate founder, Todd Swann. Throughout college, Andrew became close friends with Todd’s son Turner. “Over the past 9 years, Todd had a big influence on my life,” he said. “During that time, I got to know him. I respect his values which involve helping people, not just growing a business. He helps people solve problems relating to some of the largest financial decisions they may ever make. I realized then that is what I want to do.”
As the two began to talk about a possible career in real estate, they knew the timing had to be right. Andrew passed the real estate exam in May and immediately began as a full-time agent.
Andrew sees his background in law as huge benefit to his new career. “I’m still helping people solve problems through contracts, negotiations, etc, but I now get to interact with my clients closer. It’s very rewarding!”
Although it has been indirect, Andrew is thankful for his path and his relationship with the Swann’s. He looks forward to serving the DeLand community for many years to come.
