“I am proud to be recognized as one of the top land brokers in the country. Everything that is going on in Chatham County and the surrounding areas has been a huge factor. The Carolinas consistently rank amongst the top markets in the nation, along with Texas and Florida. It may have taken us a few more transactions to accumulate the volume that some of the brokers of large farms and ranches fetch out west, but my team and I got there through consistency and perseverance.” said Andrews upon receiving the award. Andrews has been a real estate broker in Chatham County since 1999 and focused on land sales and acreage properties early in his career.

“We are proud of Eric Andrews and all our members that were recognized as part of our award programs for their accomplishments in 2023. They truly are the most accomplished professionals with the highest levels of expertise in land real estate,” said RLI’s CEO Aubrie Kobernus, MBA, RCE. The awards winners will receive national recognition in The Land Report’s Spring Magazine and the Spring issue of Terra Firma magazine.

All land professionals recognized as part of the RLI APEX Producers Club are active members of RLI and must meet a qualifying dollar volume in closed land sales in 2023. Andrews had more than $20M in land sales. The APEX Awards Program welcomed over 100 winners totaling a combined 5,000+ transaction sides, and approximately One Million acres sold.

The National Association of Realtors recognizes Accredited Land Consultants as the highest designation for land sales.  Mr. Andrews is one of 483 ALCs in the nation and one of 53 in the state.
