Andrew Schechter began his real estate career managing a family-owned property at the age of 16. Since then, he has been a realtor, a manager of rental condominiums, and owned a title search and abstract company for 20 years. The last four years he has been a licensed notary in Rockville, MD, an experience he has found very fulfilling.
“Whether it’s a young couple buying their first home or an established homeowner refinancing their property, when they’re done signing 200+ pieces of paper and they have a smile on their face, I know I’ve had something to do with making that happen and it’s a rewarding feeling.”
Andrew is devoted to his clients and will do what it takes to serve both the lender and the borrower. This was especially evident during the pandemic when Andrew had a refi scenario during the winter months. The deal had to close because the signers’ rate lock was about to expire and they were leaving the next day for vacation. Covid protocols were followed, including wearing masks, using hand sanitizer and conducting the signing outdoors. Plus, the clients required a Russian translator! It was snowing but Andrew was able to get the deal done.
The knowledge Andrew has and the support he receives from Solidifi are two of the reasons he feels he has been successful at preparing, executing, and following up on the settlements, closings, and signings that he executes. “The managers at Solidifi have my back. Together we provide great service to our clients.”
