“To do this work well, you have to love it,” says Andrew Dicker. “And I do.”
After moving to Nashville from his native Ireland in 2005, Andrew built a career in the service industry. When one of his regular customers—who happened to be the owner of a thriving real estate firm—suggested that he join his growing enterprise, Andrew decided to make the leap. Six years later, he’s uncovered a passion and built a reputation on personalized service, industry awareness, and an abiding commitment to his clients’ goals.
Based in Nashville, Andrew serves the greater metro area, but also goes farther afield wherever clients lead. At the start of his foray in real estate, Andrew cut his teeth on a team that closed thirty to sixty deals a month, an experience that helped him build confidence, efficiency, and skill in short order. Last year, Andrew took his efforts solo while remaining under the banner of Blackwell Realty. Six years after his start in the industry, roughly half of Andrew’s business is now driven by repeat and referral clientele—a testament to his knack for working well with others and delivering consistent results.
When it comes to defining his working style, Andrew cites the fundamentals of good service and steady communication as the key drivers to his success to date. “A lot of people think that real estate is an industry rooted in sales, but it’s really a service industry,” Andrew argues. “I work seven days a week to make sure all of my clients are up-to-date and understand everything that’s going on in the transactional process.” What’s more, Andrew is a proud member of the ever-growing Nashville community and has watched his adoptive hometown evolve significantly in the past six years. “I worked in the 12 South area for a long time, and I’ve really watched the community grow,” Andrew says. “I’m passionate about being part of this city and community.”
To keep in touch with his clients, Andrew takes a multifaceted approach that blends print media via monthly newsletters, keeping in touch through social, and engaging in as much face-to-face time as possible. Above all, he favors a personal touch, preferring to build relationships with clients past and present by finding a natural point of connection. “What I love most about what I do is watching people grow,” he says. “I’ve worked with so many young, first-time homebuyers. Seeing how their families grow in the home they’ve bought—it’s awesome. I really enjoy helping my clients create equity by getting on the property ladder. That way, their goals can grow with them.”
When it comes to listing property, Andrew draws on his college degree in video production to create immersive listing presentations. Applying his own expert eye, he shoots photography and video for each home headed to market. Should adjustments need to be made, he works in consultation with clients to determine the best strategies for the respective home and marketplace. To drum up consumer interest, no stone is left unturned—from open houses and neighborhood door-knocking that create a local buzz, to extensive exposure across social media and the leading digital listing platforms. While Andrew takes his role seriously, he also does his best to eliminate undue stress from the process, instilling a sense of security and calm in those he serves. “You have to have fun with what you do,” he says. “There’s the old saying: people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. That statement goes a long way, and my clients know that I really care about what they’re trying to achieve.”
Beyond the office, Andrew most enjoys time spent with his family and loved ones, exploring new destinations in Nashville, and escaping on travel adventures a few times a year. Looking ahead, he plans to continue growing his business steadily, with hopes to mindfully develop a team in the next few years. For now, he’ll continue supporting the aspiring buyers and sellers of the Nashville area he calls home. With six years of proven service to his name and a steady eye on the future to come, the road ahead is bound to be bright for Andrew Dicker.
