Who Dat?



Seen here with Emily on beautiful Lake Lure, Andrew loves the water and Masters swimming and has coached college, club, triathletes, high school and masters swimmers over five 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 14 years Andrew has enjoyed pool and open water masters groups for over 33+ years, and swimming with clubs for almost 50 years! 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 to swim in open water, surf, paddle or play anywhere he can find it!

Calling Asheville home since 2008, Andrew is a professional 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!
