Andrew graduated USC in 2016 with a bachelors in Economics and the desire to get into real estate. His only past experience in the industry was working with a family friend for a summer, but this was not going to stop him from obtaining an incredible full time job in the industry he wanted to be in. Andrew began calling every commercial bank he could think of and was finally interviewed and offered a job at U.S. Bank. Andrew was hesitant at first because he was chosen to be a part of U.S. Banks first incoming class of Credit Analysts, but took the risk.
This decision ended up paying off in big dividends as he was able to see many sides of the industry and meet large institutions as well as smaller developers. After nearly two years at U.S. Bank, Andrew decided to go to the principal side and work with Kilroy, one of the largest office REITs in the United States. There, he is one of four acquisition analysts and spends his days sifting through hundreds of offering memorandums and talking to brokers about potential deals. Andrew said that he loves working for a young and fast paced company, and is ecstatic that he was given so much responsibility. His advice to all undergraduates is to learn the numbers and how to correctly underwrite potential properties, but also make an effort to meet anyone and everyone in the industry.
