Mr. Parker, a San Diego native, is an entrepreneur that always looks to challenge the status quo and strives to make systems better and more efficient while helping as many people as possible along the way. With this in mind, he started Care Realty in 2016, a boutique real estate brokerage firm which also supports a non-profit called Care Housing Services and their affordable housing mission.
Andy became a real estate broker in 2013 for the purposes stated above and to change, in his mind, what was an antiquated system for buying and selling homes. Thus, he created the Smart Series of Real Estate Tools: Smart Offer Platform, Smart Home Finder, Smart Home Valuation, Smart Pricing Strategy, Smart Loan Pre-Approval, etc. These Smart Series of Real Estate Tools provides a higher level of service to Care’s clients by providing transparency, efficiency and potentially more effective methods for selling | and buying real estate.
Andy’s story starts out in 1984 as a NFL professional football player. He was the Raiders’ 3rd pick in the ’84 draft and played a total of 7 years (he played for the Chargers as well). Prior to this, he graduated with a B.S. degree from the University of Utah in 1983. He has been in real estate since the mid 80’s, starting out flipping and building houses during the off-seasons of his NFL career, and has owned and operated many businesses. In the mid 90’s after retiring from professional sports, Andy joined the CARE Housing Services Corporation, of which he is now the President. Andy helped CARE in obtaining new clients, creating new programming such as the Resident Education Program and the Affordable Homeownership Program. Also, he started a health club in 1991, a sports performance company in 2007, and has been consulting prior to launching the Care Realty brokerage firm.
Andy has been married for 31 years with three grown kids. He enjoys being a real estate broker, going to church, building businesses and is a health enthusiast.
“Andy is a true professional! He sincerely cares about his clients and does everything he can to accomplish, helping them reach their goals, whether they are listing their current property, purchasing the home of their dreams, or looking for investment properties. Andy is always thinking of ways to make the process seamless and close on time. I would highly recommend Andy to any of my family & friends.”
“Andy has the upmost integrity and patience, with impeccable kindness. He is straight forward and honest. Always putting others before himself and always wanting to help others improve themselves and their lives. He is the kind of person you can always count on no matter what time of day…”
“I was nervous about the home buying process but Andy took me under his wing and made sure I felt informed and relaxed. Andy always ensures that he provides me with listings that will meet my needs while at the same time weeding out options that would not be a fit and would only cut short valuable real estate search time. Andy is always looking out for my best interest and genuine satisfaction during the home buying process. Andy has always gone above and beyond to make sure I find my perfect home.”
