About Andrew Sterling
Andrew Sterling’s long career in financing and real estate began with his employment at Bank of America. While working for B of A, Andrew helped revolutionize cross selling of banking products direct to its customers. After spending the latter part of the nineties implementing the same techniques for several startup and franchised firms, Andrew graduated from Cal State Northridge in 2001 with a degree in economics and computer science.
Soon after completing his economics degree, Andrew worked for several law firms and studio entities developing products in order to streamline their businesses as well as to enable their employees to work more efficiently. After working with mortgage bankers and helping them develop new mortgage products, in 2003 Andrew through these same mortgage bankers was re-introduced to the financing business. Through this process Andrew applied and was issued a Real Estate Broker’s license.
In 2004 Andrew founded H.I.S. Loans and Real Estate Inc., were there he implemented all the systems and products he had developed. These revolutionary systems helped Andrew’s company grow into a multi million-dollar company, only a year after startup. In 2005 Andrew applied for and was issued a Lending license. He used this license to directly lend money to consumers as well as develop new products.
Leading up to 2007 Andrew was involved in several development projects either through financing or investing. Through these projects Andrew gained the experience needed in building and development. In September 2007 Andrew applied for and was issued a General Contractors B License, which he used to expand his real estate experience. Andrew worked on several projects, which included multi-residential and commercial developments. In 2009 Andrew worked on several LEED certified projects and gained experience in green building.
After 2008 Andrew spent several years studying Real Estate and Business Law at Taft Law School. Attending law school helped him learn and interpret law. Even though Law school helped Andrew build upon his skills and experience, the law business was not really his passion.
Between 2010 and 2012 Andrew was yet again involved in several projects, which included all aspects of real estate. For example in Torrance, California, a project required all of Andrew’s skills, be it in financing, real estate and development. The project started by using his real estate skills in order to identify a suitable property, thereafter the project required financing and lastly the development experience was needed to add square footage in order to add additional value.
In July of 2007 Andrew founded Sterling Copnstruction Company. The reason for its formation was to create a vertically integrated real estate company that can touch upon each aspect of the real estate transaction under one company. This revolutionary way of looking at a real estate company was in essence Andrew’s core business practice but it was previously never combined into one entity. With the new company, Andrew was able to grow the business from a startup into a multi million-dollar finance, real estate and development company.
