6 Questions with Andy
Q: Which projects are you most excited about?
A: Today it is hard to go more than a few blocks without running into some construction workers on a new project. What most excites me is RIVER 1 on the Kinnickinnic River. This Michel’s development is slated to transform and activate the otherwise vacant 6 AC site starting with the reopening of the S. 1st Street bridge, 220,000 SF of office space, ~70 multi-fam units, retail space, a hotel, and a river walk. Not to mention the little $285M Komatsu Mining Corp headquarters planned in the Harbor District right around the corner.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A: Living in Bay View offers me with a lot of good eats. My favorite spot and hidden gem in the area is Good Kind. If you have not been here make sure to put it on your list and try the “light as a feather” drink. If not there I’d most likely be at the newly remodeled Centraal Grand Café and Tappery on KK. Great mix of craft beers and food for all.
Q: What made you choose commercial real estate?
A: I have always been intrigued by real estate and the career one can build within the industry. My uncle runs and operates his own residential firm out of Cedarburg and seeing his impact on the community, business connections, and overall success helped me understand the opportunity in real estate. This along with the great group of individuals at Colliers made the decision quite easy.
Q: What is one word that comes to mind when you think of CARW?
A: Catalyst. CARW does a tremendous job of advocating for new growth in the industry, connecting professionals, uncovering new deals and much more. I believe the association helps drive change across the people, process, and technology of the industry. Not to mention Tracy and her team really act as catalysts to drive great value for all of us involved with CARW.
Q: What is your biggest takeaway from our NextGen meetings?
A: Loving the process. Nothing in commercial real estate happens overnight. You need to have patience and enjoy the process. This is a people-driven business that takes time and requires you to have a strong blend of patience, persistence, and determination.
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
A: Tough to choose just one person for this yet having the opportunity to sit down with Mark Wahlberg would be awesome. A man of many talents and passions. An actor, producer, songwriter, businessman and more. His schedule is crazy waking up at 2:30 and scheduled out until 7:30pm. Would love to pick his brain on work, life, and more.
