Andrew Bloom, CEO, senior partner and co-founder of BVO Luxury Group at Keller Williams Arizona Realty, has surpassed $1 billion in closed residential real estate deals.
Bloom became the fourth Realtor in Arizona history to surpass this with $1,011,771,291 in sales volume as of Dec. 31.
Bloom, an industry veteran of 26 years, has been at Keller Williams since 2017, following a 20-year career at REMAX. His sales volume comprises 1,815 homes sold – 1,635 in Scottsdale – and included 760 luxury and 194 over $1 million.
This is the latest of many distinctions for Bloom, who in 2019 was No. 6 Keller Williams team in the world and the tops in volume at Keller Williams in Arizona in 2018 and 2019. He is a member of Gary Keller’s Top 100.
“I met Andrew when he was brand new in the business,” recalled Diane Day, senior vice president and operations manager for Fidelity National Title Agency. “He has been fearless in his pursuit of growth throughout his career. We are so honored to share this amazing accomplishment and cannot wait to see what he does next,” Day said.
Bloom personally mentored and coached thousands of agents and currently coaches more than 1,500 agents around the world.
He has conducted more than 2,000 open houses and personally seen more than 25,000 homes.
“Fidelity has been my partner since I got my real estate license and they have continued to give every client and the agents I work with a true white-glove experience,” Bloom said.
Bloom has risen through the ranks of the industry from a tumultuous upbringing in Los Angeles.
At age 11, he was removed from his home by California Social Services when his parents, who struggled with mental illness, could no longer legally care for him. He spent the next three years in foster care.
After dropping out of high school, Bloom put himself through college and earned his BS in social work at Arizona State University.
He worked in low-income housing projects as a housing advocate and his social work background led to his career in real estate.
“Having come from poverty and homelessness I realized early in my real estate career that the hard-earned money I was making didn’t belong to me, but was rather revenue in the business I was in,” Bloom said. “I had to put money back into the business for my life to run more efficiently. I hired staff, paid for marketing, and reinvested time and money into building up the business we have today.”
“You can’t help others if your own house is falling apart. I am here to inspire and be inspired,” he said.
Bloom, a founding member of the North Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, is active in supporting Vista Del Camino, Hope Kids, St. Mary’s Food Bank and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
