Andy Hayes is another lifelong Brainerd Lakes Area resident. Born and raised in Baxter, his only time out of the area was while attending college at the University of North Dakota. After earning a Bachelors degree in business administration, he returned home to start a career.
Andy has always had a very strong interest in real estate, so becoming a Realtor was an obvious choice. Having the opportunity to work with a group of established professionals in a busy marketplace gives him not only the resources to handle all types of transactions, but also the experience necessary to make sure that they are handled with care, professionalism, and above all else, excellent service. Having been in the real estate business since 2006, Andy has been involved in numerous multimillion-dollar transactions, including representing the seller on the largest sale to date on Gull Lake at $3.5 million.
Andy’s extensive local knowledge and contacts make him a valuable asset to the team. He enjoys spending time in the winter volunteering at Mount Ski Gull teaching skiing to 6th-grade students from across the region, and currently sits on their board of directors. Andy has also served as Director and President-Elect of the Greater Lakes Multiple Listing Service and played an integral part in its joining forces with Northstar MLS.
Being an avid golfer and outdoors enthusiast, the Brainerd Lakes Area is a perfect place to call home. It's also the perfect place to raise a family, which is exactly what Andy and his wife Ashley are doing, starting with their son Connor and dog Sage.
