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 oversaw 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 (CL) in 2017 with his business partner, George Leone. Since then, CL has conducted the entitlement, permitting, or construction of over 3,000 lots for multiple national homebuilding companies. In 2018, they launched Breeze Homes, which prides itself on building over 100 attainable houses in Northeast Florida yearly.
