Andy has over 40 years experience in real estate as a salesman, broker, property manager, developer, builder and investor. Having owned one of the Texas’ largest property management companies during the S&L crisis of the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Andy developed and wrote a DOS based program for property management written in Turbo Pascal during the late 80’ to 90’s. This software was sold commercially to clients across the nation.
During the Great Recession Andy was a Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser and due to a complaint by a homeowner that was dismissed at the state, Andy developed Appraiser Genie in Microsoft’s C# language to document Andy’s appraisal work files. Appraiser Genie was the first appraiser software that imported MLS searches and performed analytics, adjustment calculations and exported the results back into the Appraiser’s software. After selling Appraiser Genie software commercially nationwide for several years, Andy was asked by several major clients to develop a full form software with Genie’s capabilities.
Andy then developed and wrote in Java, Freedom Appraise as the first cloud based software for Real Estate Appraisers in the United States with office management, MLS import, 6 methods of adjustments, analytics and all major forms giving the Appraiser an opportunity to be completely mobile and able to upload reports from any location in the world. Freedom Appraise is available in every MLS market in the United States and has users in all 50 states.
Andy continues to develop new products for the real estate industry and performs appraisals on a regular basis.
