More About Andrew GreenwellWith over a decade of experience, Andrew Greenwell is the CEO and principal at Venture Sotheby’s International Realty, specializing in ultra-luxury real estate in the San Francisco area. Throughout his career, Greenwell has sold nearly four billion dollars of real estate between his own sales and the deals he has overseen as CEO. Greenwell founded his own brokerage at age 19, while earning his college degree at Florida State University and simultaneously grew the company to three offices. After being named one of Realtor Magazine's "Top 30 Realtors in America Under 30," he decided to leave Florida behind and head west to Seattle, where he spent four successful years, before settling down in the Bay Area. Prior to starting his own company in September 2014, he worked as a CEO and team leader of Keller Williams Tri-Valley Realty, managing more than 150 agents.
With a work hard, play harder approach, Greenwell’s philosophy is “go big or don’t go at all.” Driven to succeed, this real estate shark is extremely impatient and wants everything done yesterday. He doesn’t hold his tongue, and if you cross him, you better sleep with one eye open. When he isn’t buying the domain names of his competitors, Greenwell is busy planning his extravagant wedding with his fiancé Paal.
