Andrew Shader is a real estate developer and investor specializing in value-added properties that require corrective action to reach their full market potential. After getting his Bachelor of Science in Business, Management, and Marketing from Florida State University, he got a job at a Health Insurance agency. Mr. Shader began by marketing insurance via phone sales but quickly worked his way up. Moving around the company, he mastered the fundamentals of management, training, technology, and accounting. Then, he left his job to start an insurance business with his brother Corey Shader where he developed his niche in finding the scalability within any vertical.
The duo got into real estate in 2016 and started building a solid portfolio for the future. As investors, they buy properties not for what they are but what they can be. The model has increased the value by 60% without relying on future appreciation. Andrew is most passionate about scouting value-added properties that require foresight into future potential. While his goals are long term, having the innovation, foresight, and ability to execute today are what drives his ability to separate himself from other developers who can only sit and wait for the appreciation of the future.
Mr. Shader’s broad range of skills and expertise include, leadership, management, financial forecasting, budget analysis, and strategic planning. He learned most of what he knows by first-hand experience and is self-taught. He has held numerous positions, ranging from Office Manager to CFO in multiple companies.
Outside of work, Andrew enjoys reading, socializing, and playing competitive sports.
