Born in Chicago and raised on the North side, Andy has developed a keen understanding of what each individual neighborhood has to offer. Andy loves what he does and his commitment to create an exceptional experience for his clients paired with his straightforward knack for negotiation makes him an excellent fit for real estate.
Andy is part of the Scott Stavish Group, which has been involved in over 500 transactions, totaling over $150 Million dollars in sales. He has proven himself a valuable asset to this team.
Andy is there to alleviate the pressures and stress of a deal. He will quarterback the transaction between agents, lenders, attorney and inspectors while being a trusted advisor to his clients.
Previous to becoming a Realtor in 2013, Andy spent many years in the restaurant industry. This helped Andy develop a strong business sense and ability to quickly analyze issues and create solutions. The experience Andy gained managing restaurants also honed his excellent communication skills through years of one-on-one interactions. Managing restaurants also meant managing many different personalities between customers, employees and vendors - a skill set that has translated into successfully managing the many facets of a real estate transaction, negotiating with other agents and communicating with lenders and attorneys.
Andy has spent his career working tirelessly to ensure all of his clients’ needs are accommodated. He recognizes that owning a home is extremely personal and, for most people, real estate is the largest asset they will own. Andy’s ability to easily manage the flow of each transaction while communicating with each client along the way is something he takes great pride in.
In his free time Andy enjoys spending time with his kids, playing hockey, golf and jujitsu. As an avid Chicago sports fan, you may catch him at a Hawks, Bears or Cubs game. He also enjoys the great food, drink and music scene the city has to offer.
Clients are saying:
"Andy truly stands out as a Realtor. Warm friendly and engaging. But most importantly he was an advocate for us in the purchase of an East Lake View condo. He is incredibly knowledgeable informative and patient. He understands the selection process and was willing to work with us at our pace.
The selection process took several months and over that time Andy became a trusted friend and he treated us like family.
As we narrowed the selection process Andy was out of the country for a wedding. He put us in the capable hands of his business partner Scott Stavish, who was well informed of our purchase plan and it was a seamless transition. (Andy even checked in on us from abroad!)
In making our offer, Andy suggested a strategic approach that enabled us to successfully get the property without a bargaining haggle in a very competitive situation.
It was a pleasure working with Andy. He was committed through our sale and closing and made it effortless for us. Then welcomed us to our new home.
We Highly recommend Andy for consideration as your Realtor.
Thank You Andy.

"I met Andy at an open house several summers ago, and even though I had told him we wouldn't be ready to buy for a while, he put me on his mailing list so we could scope out the market. Once we were actively looking at properties Andy was so helpful and his knowledge made me feel confident in my choice of home and agent as a first time home buyer. Andy is the best!"
"Andy was absolutely fantastic...from beginning to end! He was enthusiastic about our listing, giving solid advice regarding pricing expectations and best practices for showing. He wrote a lovely description of the property (nothing boiler plate) and got it on the market super fast. From the showing process, to getting us under contract, to completing the sale...he went above and beyond to make sure we were successful. It wasn't exactly a straightforward sale, and he really worked very hard to bring it to a close. In the end we ended higher than we expected. He's easy to work with, charming and easy going. We wholeheartedly recommend him as a top-notch realtor."
"Andy was outstanding from the moment we met him, all the way to closing on a great house! He was friendly, informative and always willing to go the extra mile for us. He was quick to answer texts and emails at all hours, put us in touch with great resources and always made sure we were taken care of. I would, without any reservation, recommend Andy to anyone. He is a fantastic agent!"
