COACHES

ANDREW PULSIFER

Seen here with Emily on beautiful Lake Lure, Andrew loves masters swimming and has coached college, club, triathletes, high school and masters swimmers over four different decades. He’s still refining his own strokes and helping others remember how awesome it is to swim whenever we have the chance.

Swimming with and coaching the Asheville Masters club for over 11 years now he’s enjoyed pool and open water masters groups for over 30 years now! He’s a 7X U.S.M.S. National Champion and an Age-Group World Champion at the 2013 World Open Water Swimming Association’s 10-mile Championships in beautiful Lake Memphremagog, Vermont ~ on the Canadian border. Andrew still loves the open water swim, surf, paddle or play anywhere he can find it!

Andrew loves living in Asheville and is a local REALTOR who truly enjoys helping people with all sides of a real estate transaction! If you’d like to discuss real estate or are thinking of buying or selling real property, he’d be glad to assist, regardless of where you or your friends and family may live!
