Meet Andrew Ford
I was drawn to the world of real estate after spending my high school and college years earning extra money as a handyman. When the recession hit, it provided an opportunity to purchase foreclosed homes and use my skills to purchase and rehab my own homes. As a result, I learned first hand how to use Real Estate as a business and pathway for building wealth. What I love about Real Estate is it allows me to use my knowledge and experience to help others. No client or deal is the same and each have their own nuances. Very much a creative problem solver, I enjoy the unique puzzle each deal brings. In a sense, we help people accomplish their dreams. At the end of the day, being in my clients corner to have a hand in that is what brings me fulfillment in this exciting career.
What I like about Swan Realty is the personal touches the permeate throughout our brokerage. Whether that is our unique interaction with our clients or the diverse range of skills each member brings. We have brokers from all walks of life who have expertise in a variety of different fields and areas. If there is a problem that I may not have a ton of experience in, I know there is someone on our team I can go to who has the answers. The leadership at Swan Realty is invested not only in our careers, but our personal lives as well. I know I can count on Sandy when I need her.
While I am not working, I enjoy being outdoors and with my close friends and family. While the winters are for snowboarding in Summit/Vail, my summers are spent rafting, fishing and mountain biking. I enjoy taking my rescue dog Charlie with me wherever I go. While at home, my time is spent playing the guitar and piano and learning new skills such as woodworking and writing.
