Born and raised in Western, Massachusetts Andrew Disa currently resides in Boston’s Charlestown neighborhood. He has been a resident of Boston for over eight years in which he has established a deep understanding of its neighborhoods, history, and culture. His love for the city is expressed in his resilient passion for ensuring that his customers feel the same way as they put down new roots.
Andrew is an avid musician and his love of guitar helped him to earn a scholarship to attend Northeastern University where he studied music and business. During his tenure at Northeastern, he quickly took to the Boston community by way of business internships and music showcases throughout the city.
Post graduation Andrew began working at Sun Life Financial. He spent 5 years learning the business of insurance and the ins and outs of a large corporation. In late 2011, Andrew moved to St. Petersburg, Florida where he was given the opportunity to help construct a new retail concept developed by Ashley Furniture. His hard work paid off and he quickly took on the role of Director of Sleep Merchandising where he was responsible for a 20-store retail chain. His main focuses became finance, sales, technology, and above all, building and maintaining new relationships.
Andrew’s success with development in the retail industry eventually led him to SavvyCard - a technology startup focusing on mobile web apps for real estate professionals. Working closely with realtors and real estate professionals at SavvyCard he quickly became enamored with the real estate industry.
Andrew ultimately earned his Massachusetts real estate license, and now works for Boston’s largest independently owned real estate firm, Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty. His work ethic is fueled by his desire to make his customers happy long term. He believes in honesty and community, striving to help others to live in, and to love the city of Boston as much as he does.
Andrew was absolutely wonderful to work with in buying my new home. The Boston buyers' market is very competitive, but his knowledge of the market, his creativity, and responsiveness made my purchase possible. He was always there to look at a place I liked, respond to my questions and move quickly for putting in documents. The way Andrew approached my search and really listened to the things I wanted really put me at ease. We were able to buy my dream condo BEFORE it listed and was able to deal effectively with any curveballs that came in the process. He had positive interactions with the whole team involved in my purchase, including the sellers agents, mortgage lender, and attorneys. This ability to be the point on your buying team is an overlooked but critical part of the process and Andrew was great on that too!
