ANDREW LESPERANCE – Andy grew up in the Bay City/Saginaw Michigan area. His interest in the Real Estate Industry was initiated by growing up around his family’s residential construction business. Andy attended college at Michigan State University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a focus on Hospitality Management. Andy bought his first home and renovated it during his sophomore year in college and has had a passion for the real estate business ever since. Immediately after college Andy moved to Austin, Texas, one of the fastest growing real estate markets in the US. While in Austin he worked and educated himself in many aspects of the real estate investment and renovation business; everything from managing energy efficient home renovations to buying properties for investors at foreclosure auctions. Realizing the true value of energy efficient homes, Andy decided to concentrate his focus on green technology. After almost 5 years in Austin, he decided to move back to Michigan and join forces with his father, Mark, and start GreenEdge of Michigan. Andy lives in Holland, MI with his wife and son.
GreenEdge offices are located in the Bakercommons, which is a part of the Baker Lofts in Holland, MI. This warehouse is the former location of a factory for Baker Furniture Co. It has been developed into condos, office space and retail. The building provides modern upgrades, but still promotes the character of the once upon a time factory. We are excited to be housing our offices in this great building.
