Andy is a Residential Real Estate Agent and leads the Andy Staton Group. He is a community advocate, committed to fitness, and lives in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
After moving to Rehoboth Beach, Andy set to work starting and growing his own business. Realizing that real estate had become a passion as a hobby, Andy chose to join the real estate profession full time in 2003. Starting his own business soon after, Andy was a partner in his own firm and in 2009, moved his practice to Prudential Gallo Realtors® where he leads the Andy Staton Group.
The Andy Staton Group is flourishing today and regularly performs in the top 1% of all agents in Sussex County. Andy was voted the 2010-2011 Sussex County Realtor® of the Year by his peers, and he was also appointed by Governor Markell to the Delaware Real Estate Commission, where he has served as Chairman and now Secretary.
Andy is heavily invested in our community. He serves on the Board of Governors of the Sussex Family YMCA, where he focuses his efforts on childhood obesity prevention and education programs. He serves as an Ambassador to the Beebe Medical Foundation and on the Leadership Council to the CAMP Rehoboth community center.
In 2009, Governor Markell appointed Andy to the Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council, where he advises the Governor on tax policy and our state and local economy.
In his spare time, Andy is an accomplished triathlete (5x Ironman), marathon runner, and weight-loss advocate. On most early mornings he can be found training for his next endurance race, like the JFK 50-miler he completed in 2011. In 2011 Andy founded a non-profit to fund training and education programs battling childhood obesity. The organization has donated thousands of dollars to local organizations such as the Sussex Family YMCA and the Sussex Child Health Promotion Coalition’s Shore Camp for Kids.
Prior to his move to Rehoboth Beach, Andy was an Associate with Booz Allen Hamilton where he focused on strategy and policy matters as it relates to security and privacy.
