For those of you who’ve stumbled onto my website, thank you for visiting and taking the time to look around. I hope you find the website useful and educational. I currently live with my wife in Downtown Los Angeles, and I’m constantly looking for ways to be of service to my community. As a REALTOR®, I specialize in residential condo and loft sales and leases in the neighborhoods of Downtown (DTLA), Koreatown, and adjacent areas.
Born and raised in the suburbs of South Pasadena, I graduated from the University of California, Riverside, with a B.A. in business economics with a concentration in marketing. After college, I deepened my interest in online marketing by earning a certification in digital marketing from General Assembly while interning at a local real estate brokerage. My internship experience showed me that real estate is an opportunity to help people in Los Angeles achieve their dreams. After the internship, I soon got my license, and in 2017, I started my business, which allowed me to combine my passions for marketing and real estate. I decided to specialize in the community that was right in front of me – Downtown LA.
My earliest memories of Downtown were from my elementary school years when I took weekend swimming classes at the YMCA. I was amazed while driving into DTLA staring up at the buildings from the backseat. After swim lessons, we often stopped by the Los Angeles Public Library. It was beautiful then, and it’s even more charming now. Growing up, I always looked at Downtown as a place that was only about work and business — commuters drove in the morning for work then left for home somewhere else, leaving Downtown empty and quiet at night. With DTLA’s renaissance in recent years, that’s not the case anymore. Many now call Downtown their home. I am excited about the future of this community and glad I can play a small part in it. When I’m not working in real estate, I like to travel with my wife, work as a freelance food photographer, and further explore Downtown LA.

Im so thankful we had Andrew by our side in every step of the home buying process. We started our search at the beginning of the year. Andrew sat us down to walk us through he home buying process end to end. Im a very curious person that wants to know as much as possible, and patiently answered every question I had.
From there, he took us to as many showings as we wanted to see and made us feel completely comfortable to go in our own timing. When COVID hit, the first phase of our home search took a turn, and my wife and I decided to pause our home search. Andrew was completely understanding and made us feel comfortable to take our own time. He kept us updated and sharp even when we paused our search.
In the second phase of our search, my wife and I decided to look for homes in Orange County. Because of our pleasant experience with Andrew, we decided to go with him even though the OC wasn’t his main focus area. He was just as available, prepared, and professional as in LA. We had 3 days of showings and we were able to find the perfect home for us. One great thing about Andrew is that he puts the clients preferences first yet also provides really valuable insights and opinions.
Escrow turned out to be a breeze. After working with Andrew, it is clear that he cares about his clients and wants the best for them. He is knowledgeable, extremely diligent, and sharp. He helps you put your best foot forward, makes the right recommendations and feedback to help you succeed in purchasing the home right for you.
Im super thankful I had Andrew in my corner and confidently recommend him to anyone!
Thanks again Andrew!
Initially, my fiance and I were originally looking to rent a condo in DTLA and we reached out to Andrew about leases in the area. He was very professional and quick in sending us a list of available leases in the area that met our criteria. After discussing with my fiance, we decided to buy vs renting and I was so impressed by Andrew’s knowledge of the market that it was a no-brainer to go back to Andrew and ask for help in which property to purchase as we expected to live in that condo for a couple years and turn it into a rental property.
As a first time home buyer, we had so many questions and had apprehensions when buying because we didn’t know what questions to ask and what was normal during the process. Andrew was so patient with us and addressed all our questions and concerns. He was so knowledgeable about the rental market in DTLA and which units would be a good investment over another in the different DTLA neighborhoods. I am so glad that we chose Andrew as our realtor as he is knowledgeable, honest, reliable, professional, patient and understanding. I can trust Andrew to always have our best interest at mind. I would recommend Andrew and will be asking for his assistance with future DTLA purchases and help with leases. Thank you so much Andrew!
Andrew was super helpful in helping me purchase my first condo! If I could say one thing about Andrew, is that going through this whole process with him was like going through it with a good friend. Despite the stresses of looking for a place to buy, he helped make the whole process easy and casual! He also provided great insight and advice on what to look for and the areas that would be a fit for me. He really put my needs first! Anytime there was an open house that I was interested in taking a look at, he would find the time and was able to meet up or answer any of my questions. I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone looking to buy a new home!
We loved working with Andrew from Aspire! He impressed us off the bat with his research and knowledge of the real estate market in our area and came prepared with a complete marketing plan to our initial meeting. He was confident he could sell our home quickly and for the price we wanted and we knew he was someone we could trust. Throughout the process of selling our home, I really valued his quick response time to every question we had and his thorough responses via email and text. He made sure our home was meticulous for open houses and showings and went above and beyond as our realtor to make sure our property was always in prime showing condition. We received multiple offers the week of our first open house and were able to sell for over asking. Aside from getting us exactly what we wanted for our home, what I appreciated most about Andrew was how professional he was throughout the entire process (even when other parties were being difficult). We knew there wouldn’t be any surprises with Andrew because of his attention to detail and his ability to stay on top of everything. We were so fortunate to have found him and I would absolutely recommend Andrew to anyone looking to sell their home.
Andrew is an excellent realtor. He helped make our first time home buying experience fun and exciting. He was available every step of the way. He walked us through all the details step by step at our pace. He is extremely professional and was graceful but firm in negotiating on our behalf. We couldn’t be happier with our new home.
