Andrew Keel is the owner of Keel Team, which owns and operates over 20 mobile home parks across 10 states. He was raised in an upper middle class neighborhood, his father was a small business owner and entrepreneur as Andrew grew up and that is where he gets his entrepreneur drive from. He didn’t instantly start out investing on his own. Starting out as an apprentice to a local Central Florida real estate wholesaler. Using the knowledge he gained he started to look at ways to generate monthly cash flow and found a YouTuber by the name Lonnie Scruggs and followed his series and purchased his first of many mobile home units.
