SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA (JAN. 28, 2021) – Fidelity National Title Agency is pleased to announce that one of its valued partners, Andrew Bloom, CEO/Senior Partner/Co-Founder of BVO Luxury Group at Keller Williams Arizona Realty, has surpassed a historic milestone of $1 billion in closed MLS residential real estate deals.
Bloom becomes the fourth real estate professional in Arizona history to surpass this distinguished mark. He stands at $1,011,771,291 in sales volume as of Dec. 31, 2020.
Bloom, an industry veteran of 26 years, has been at Keller Williams since 2017, following a 20-year career at REMAX. His $1 billion in sales volume comprises 1,815 total homes sold, 1,635 homes sold in Scottsdale, 760 luxury homes sold and 194 homes sold over $1 million.
His career achievements include:
- 2019: No. 6 Keller Williams team in the world;
- 2018 and 2019: No. 1 in volume at Keller Williams in Arizona;
- 2014: $40 million, RE/MAX Circle of Legends Award, $10 million in lifetime gross commission income (GCI); only the 312th agent worldwide to ever receive this recognition;
- 1995: Rookie year, closed 40 transactions, $3 million in sales volume and $75,000 GCI;
- Member of Gary Keller’s Top 100.
“I met Andrew when he was brand new in the business. I was a branch manager/ escrow officer and our branch was next to his office. At the time, his office manager sent him over to print open house flyers and told him that is what title companies do for agents,” recalled Diane Day, Senior Vice President, Operations Manager, for Fidelity National Title Agency. “Things sure have evolved in our business since then. He no longer calls us to print flyers. Instead, he considers our professional team part of his personal board of directors.
“We are coaches and consultants in his business and the leader in the industry for efficiency in processing the most complex real estate transactions. 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’s reputation from his peers and colleagues has been recognized globally. He personally mentored and coached thousands of agents and currently coaches more than 1,500 agents around the world. In his 26 years 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. “They continue to lead the industry in customer service and our brands align perfectly.”
Bloom has risen through the ranks of the industry from a tumultuous time living and growing up in Los Angeles. At the age of 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 3 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, learning the importance of protecting his clients as he advocated for better housing conditions. 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.
“I didn’t simply ride the waves of the real estate cycle with little consistency and little support. I always felt that in real estate you must put the oxygen mask on yourself first. 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 local community agencies. They include Vista Del Camino, Hope Kids, St. Mary’s Food Bank and Phoenix Children’s Hospital. He is also the father of four children.
