Andrews recognized as one of the nation’s top land brokers


Eric Andrews of Realty World Carolina Properties has been recognized as a part of the 2022 APEX Producers Club by the Realtors Land Institute.

The club is a part of the RLI APEX Production Awards Program, sponsored by The Land Report Magazine and the National Association of Realtors.  

Andrews was recognized by RLI CEO Aubrie Kobernus as well as The Land Report’s co-founders, Eddie Lee Rider Jr. and Eric O’Keefe, at a special awards ceremony March 7 during RLI’s 2023 National Land Conference (NLC23) in Denver, Colorado.

“As a land broker in Central North Carolina, I am honored to receive this award,” Andrews said. “At this National Land Conference, North Carolina was acknowledged as one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. I am in the right field of real estate, in the right place, at the right time.”  

Andrews has been a broker in Chatham County for over 20 years.   

“We are proud of Eric Andrews and all of our members that were recognized as part of our award programs for their accomplishments in 2022,” said RLI’s CEO Aubrie Kobernus, MBA, RCE. “They truly are the most accomplished professionals with the highest levels of expertise in land real estate.”

Top awards winners will receive national recognition in The Land Report’s Spring Magazine, RLI’s Spring issue of Terra Firma magazine, as well as additional promotions throughout the year. 

All land professionals recognized as part of the RLI APEX Producers Club are active members of Realtor Land Institute and were required to close a qualifying dollar volume in land sales during 2022. The APEX Awards Program celebrated its sixth year by welcoming 217 applicants totaling a combined $7.0+ billion in qualifying transaction volume.  

Andrews sold more than $20 million worth of property in 2022. He serves as the RLI president of the North and South Carolina Chapter.
