Carrying on the Family Legacy in San Diego’s Luxury Real Estate Market

In the world of high-end luxury real estate, Andrew Appleby stands out as a rising star. With a passion for helping people find their dream homes and a deep-rooted family legacy in the industry, he has quickly made a name for himself in San Diego’s competitive real estate market.

Andrew’s journey into the world of luxury real estate began at a young age, shaped by the influence of his family. “Some of my earliest memories are attending open houses with my Dad,” Andrew shared with GB Magazine. “When you are in a family that works together, every family gathering consists of discussions about business, and I loved hearing my Dad and my Aunt Kerry talk about different properties and the deals they were working on.”

Coming from a family deeply entrenched in real estate, Andrew admired the joy and fulfillment his father and aunt found in their work. They were able to maintain a successful career while still being actively present in his life, attending his school events and sports games. It was this balance of work and family life that inspired Andrew to follow in their footsteps and carry on the family legacy.

As a third-generation San Diegan, Andrew has an innate appreciation for the beauty of the city. He attended college at SMU in Dallas, Texas and started his career in commercial real estate in 2018. During this time, he honed his skills in building relationships, understanding property values and delivering results for clients. However, his heart remained in San Diego, and he longed to help individuals and families find their perfect homes in the city he loved.
In 2020, after heartfelt discussions with his father, Scott, and aunt, Kerry, Andrew was presented with the opportunity he had been eagerly awaiting – to work alongside them at Appleby Family Group. This marked the beginning of a new chapter in his career, one that allowed him to combine his passion for helping people with his deep knowledge of San Diego’s real estate market.

Appleby Family Group is a legacy in itself, with a rich history that dates back to 1985 when Mary Appleby, Scott and Kerry’s mother, founded the family business. The motto “It Takes a Family” embodies the spirit of their work, emphasizing the importance of treating clients like family and providing hands-on service.

What inspires Andrew in his career is the people he meets and the opportunity to help them achieve their real estate dreams. He sees himself as not just an advisor but also a close friend to his clients, ensuring they receive the best possible service.

Outside of work, Andrew cherishes his time with his family, especially since the birth of his son, Hayden, in February. He enjoys family walks, golfing with friends and family, and indulging in his love for fishing. Moreover, Andrew remains actively engaged in his community, serving as the youngest advisory board member for the Future Legends Scholarship Foundation.
