Andrew Cordle - Maintaining the Highest Degree of Industry Accomplishments Through Life and Business.
Andrew Cordle became interested in real estate at a young age. Completing his first deal when he was only 22, he had a knack for understanding the specific strategies that worked in real estate. Although Andrew wasn’t academically trained he knew he wanted more out of life during his college years. That’s when he became a self-taught real estate investor.
He began attending real estate investor clubs where he got his first taste of the real estate world. These local clubs truly had an impact on Andrew’s life. After attending a few real estate investor association meetings he decided to start his own business in real estate. Attending local clubs combined with his motivation drove him to grow his business to levels even he couldn’t imagine.
By 2007 Andrew was at the top of his game. He was young, only 25 years old, ambitious, and running a very successful business. Located in Atlanta, his small company of flipping houses was growing at a rapid rate. Needless to say, this young real estate investor had a natural aptitude for real estate that was matched by his hard work, dedication, and inspirational network he found at real estate meetings and clubs.
By the end of 2007 Andrew found himself in the middle of the financial crash that left thousands out of work. His properties weren’t selling, which in turn created a snowball effect of problems. He was losing money and his business started to decline.
Although he suffered from the crash, as so many others, he didn’t let the economic downturn bring him down.
He spent the next couple years fine tuning his strategies and using this down period to study, work, and figure out how to invest in real estate using the market’s natural influx.
In three short years Andrew’s longstanding real estate business was on the rise yet again. It was then he decided to help others understand how they can find success in an evolving market. This journey led to Andrew putting together the National Association of Real Estate Investors. He knew he wanted to create a community of like minded people to have a platform to ask questions, learn about real estate, and grow with the current market. After all, it was his own modest beginnings of attending local real estate meetings that not only influenced Andrew to begin a new career in real estate, but also inspired him to start helping others.
Since then, Andrew has written an Amazon best seller book that has clinched a top spot on the marketplace. He’s been interviewed by some of the most prestigious publications, such as Forbes magazine. He was also offered an opportunity to host his own radio show where he has the privilege of interviewing some of the most successful real estate investors in the country.
Andrew currently continues to give back by growing and expanding NAREI into a global organization that holds onto its local investor meetings to create an educational channel for networking and growing. Andrew continues to flip, renovate, and rent completing over 145 deals in only an 18-month period.
