Andy Launched Corner Lot Properties in 2009 where he quickly became the largest real estate investor in Northeast Florida, showing over $500 million of residential real estate transactions to include acquisition, rehabilitation, and disposition. From 2011-2014, Andy's companies facilitated over 3,000 homes for the country's largest residential REIT, American Homes 4 Rent (AH4R). His companies were in charge of the brokerage, construction, and rental management for AH4R in Northeast Florida which became one of their top producing markets. He subsequently launched Heritage Holdings, his own residential portfolio of 1,100 single-family homes, one of the largest in Duval County. Andy formed Corner Lot Development Group (CLDG) in 2017 with his business partner, George Leone. Since then, CLDG has conducted the entitlement, permitting, or construction of over 3,000 lots for multiple national homebuilding companies. In 2019 they drove Corner Lot’s total capitalization to well over $1 billion by launching Corner Lot Living, a multi-family development platform currently developing over 2,000 apartment units.
He was included in Jacksonville Business Journal’s 40 under 40 in 2015 and was named a Top Entrepreneur by the Jacksonville Daily Record in 2022. Outside of real estate, Andy enjoys Jaguar football and is one of the top amateur golfers in Jacksonville. He cherishes spending time with his wife Kristen and his two children Ava and Payne. They’ve traveled much of the world together including a summer in Europe, a winter in Southeast Asia, and multiple trips to Scandanavia, home of he and Kristen's ancestors. On weekends, you can find Andy coaching baseball for his beloved Marlins or Jimis at the Hendricks Avenue Community Athletic Association. Coaching and growing his city are truly his passions!
In 2016, George launched Leone Development and quickly built a reputation for understanding development constraints, being solution-oriented, and building great teams for the successful execution of land development projects.

Over the years, Corner Lot has become a market leader across all aspects of real estate development including residential, commercial, multi-family, industrial development, and ground-up construction.
