Andrew Reibly was casually sitting at his office chair in his house where most his business decisions are made. There is much importance to that chair, where an American Dream is carried out. It is where he carries his past experiences to provide for his family. It is where he freely chooses to do what he wants within his own company, and it is where he sits proud and firm.
“I was in the US Army for 6 years. I was an Airborne Combat Engineer,” he laughed explaining that his job was to blow up stuff as a paratrooper, “I was in the Persian Gulf War attached to 7th Special Forces group on deployment to South and Central America.”
Reibly lives and preaches the American Dream. He is now a licensed builder, realtor, HUD consultant, and investor receiving orders from none other than himself.
“Before I went in the Army, I worked for a builder and really enjoyed it. After the Army and college at Kennesaw State University, I started renovating and building houses,” said Reibly. “My 1st company was Southern Living Construction and I was a custom home builder and custom renovator on large projects.”
Andrew Reibly is a family man and has a great deal of coaching experience with local youth athletes. He has two children, and they have grown up playing sports with support from their father. He was little league football coach for multiple seasons and has touched countless young lives. Reibly has had a large impact on how local kids have developed and proved his excellence in leadership roles over the years. All of his qualities that are present even when interviewing him in his office have me without a doubt in his ability to run a business.
“There are lots of ‘best parts’ to owning my business. Doing what I love on my own terms is pretty cool,” he says with a smirk on his face. “There’s higher earning potential than most jobs. There is freedom to schedule based on my wants or needs which is huge.”
It seems that the personal benefits Andrew Reibly has had is why he loves his career. Not to take away from the selfless man he seems to be, it is always reasonable to consider one’s personal desires and goals. With his entrepreneurship and military background, Andrew Reibly truly lives to express the American Dream in business and is a strong mentor for the next generation.
